A cloudless sky gives evidence of positive electricity, which is much stronger in winter than in summer.
The machine was then worked, the positive electricity passing into the turmeric paper at the point p, and out at the extremity n.
Thus, assuming the cloud to be charged with positive electricity, the subjacent earth will be in the negative state.
Thus the upper air loses a proportion of positive electricity, or becomes "negatively electrified."
To a negatively charged body, on the other hand, the earth under the same circumstances gives off positive electricity.
positive electricity is formed of positive electrons which make up the inside particles of an atom.
The leaves of the electroscope will diverge with positive electricity.
The positive electricity, common to fair weather, often yields to a negative state before rain.
Each receives the positive electricity from the sun, which it draws by reason of its negative polarity.
These points collect the positive electricity of the glass, the rubbers being put to earth.
