Background information, lists of materials needed and procedures used are provided for 16 simple experiments on electricity and magnetism. These experiments are organized into sections dealing with: (1) Edison's carbon experiments (building a galvanometer, investigating the variable conductivity of carbon, and examining the carbon transmitter principle); (2) a model telephone transmitter (building and testing the transmitter); (3) magnetism (making a magnet and identifyng the poles, making an electromagnet, investigating magnetism and the compass, and making an electromagnet with two coils); (4) Edison's home lighting circuit (investigating series circuits, parallel circuits, and fuses); and (5) Faraday experiments (building an electrophorous, building an electroscope, conducting Faraday's "ice pail experiment," determining if ice conducts electricity, and electroplating a house key). Diagrams illustrating procedures and/or equipment are included when applicable. (Jn)

Energy for the future : experiments you can do-- from Edison by Robert Schultz( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This booklet provides background information and five experiments which focus on how energy is lost. Section I contains two experiments to help students discover how energy is lost in their homes. These experiments involve determining a home's location and the weather forces acting on it and completing a home energy audit. Section ii contains two experiments designed to investigate ways to reduce energy consumption, including investigating how electricity can be used more wisely and building and weatherizing a model house. Section iii contains an experiment in which the weatherized model house is converted into a solar garden that can be used to grow small plants (such as potted herbs) outside during the winter. All but the first experiment contain one or more related, "quickie" experiments (such as making a draft detector using a pencil and piece of paper). All experiments include lists of materials required and procedures used. (Jn)
