Most widely held works by Corporation for Community College Television
The Mechanical universe and beyond ; Static electricity by David L Goodstein( visu )
39 editions published between 1976 and 2003 in English and held by 185 libraries worldwide
Program 35 deals with Biot's and Savart's law, the force between electric currents and Ampere's law. Program 36 discusses the properties of force fields. Program 37 discusses the discovery of electromagnetic induction which created an important breakthrough in the generation of electric power. Program 38 discusses the way in which electromagnetic induction makes it possible to generate alternating current while transformers make it practical to distribute it over long distances. Discussion of the principles and practicality of alternating current, and the conflict between Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison on the subject. Uses computer animation sequences, historical reenactments, and close-up photography of experiments
