In earth that is only moist and for moderate depths, preference may be given to an electrode laid down flat.
Here Tom attached an electrode to each side of the star head.
There is also a fin F at the top of the stem, to increase the radiation of heat from the stem and electrode.
The flames were arranged so as to form one electrode of a frictional machine.
It will be seen, therefore, that this is essentially a White transmitter, but with a modified mounting for the electrode chamber.
Her outflung hand had unwittingly gripped my wrist, caught the electrode there.
The nickel is precipitated as a gray, compact mass, tightly adhering to the electrode.
In Fig. 24 W is the metal core of the electrode, and G the glass covering around it.
One electrode is also clamped around it, allowing of adjustment and better insulation.
The spark-plugs may be short circuited by cracked insulation or carbon and oil deposits around the electrode.
electrode e·lec·trode (ĭ-lěk'trōd')
A solid electric conductor through which an electric current enters or leaves an electrolytic cell or other medium.
A collector or emitter of electric charge or of electric-charge carriers, as in a semiconducting device.
A conductor through which an electric current enters or leaves a substance (or a vacuum) whose electrical characteristics are being measured, used, or manipulated. Electrodes can be used to detect electrical activity such as brain waves. Terminal points in electrical components such as transistors, diodes, and batteries are electrodes.
