High-energy physics and nuclear structure; proceedings by Samuel Devons( Book )

24 editions published between 1970 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In preparing the program for this Conference, the third in the series, it soon became evident that it was not possible to in clude in a conference of reasonable duration all the topics that might be subsumed under the broad title, "High Energy Physics and Nuclear Structure." From their initiation, in 1963, it has been as much the aim of these Conferences to provide some bridges between the steadily separating domains of particle and nuclear physics, as to explore thoroughly the borderline territory between the two - the sort of no-man's-land that lies unclaimed, or claimed by both sides. The past few years have witnessed the rapid development of many new routes connecting the two major areas of 'elementary par ticles' and 'nuclear structure', and these now spread over a great expanse of physics, logically perhaps including the whole of both subjects. (As recently as 1954, an International Conference on 'Nuclear and Meson Physics' did, in fact, embrace both fields!) Since it is not now possible to traverse, in one Conference, this whole network of connections, still less to explore the entire ter ritory it covers, the choice of topics has to be in some degree arbitrary. It is hoped that ours has served the purpose of fairly exemplifying many areas where physicists, normally separated by their diverse interests, can find interesting and important topics which bring them together

Coulomb's Electrical Measurements. Experiment No. 14 by Samuel Devons( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Presented is information related to the life and work of Charles Coulomb as well as detailed notes of his measurements of the distribution of electricity on conductors. The two methods that he used (the large torsion balance, and the timing of "force" oscillations) are described. (Sa)
The Search for Electromagnetic Induction (1820-1831). Experiment No. 20 by Samuel Devons( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper focuses on the search for electromagnetic induction from 1820 to 1831 and the efforts by Augustin Fresnel's colleague, Andre Marie Ampere, in electric and magnetic induction. Faraday's work is discussed with excerpts from his diary on electromagnetism. A variety of different experiments by researchers including Francoise Jean Arago, Barlow, Christie, Becquerel, Seebeck, Pohl, and Colladon, are integrated into this historical approach to physics. Experiments are described for students to do in the laboratory. The equipment for the experiments is illustrated. (Sa)

The story of the twelfe-year search for an answer to the question Can magnetism produce electricity?, which resulted from Oersted's chance discovery of electromagnetism in 1820. From Paris to London to Geneva, 1820-1831, we observe the experiments of Hans Oersted, André-Marie Ampère, Michael Faraday, and other researchers, their disagreements until the final solution is reached
