This phenomenon results from voltaic action being set up between the liquid and the metal.
Just as little as the voltaic battery is the animal body a creator of force.
None of them had any effect on the polarized light, either during the passage of the voltaic current or when this was shut off.
In applying this illustration to the voltaic cell, we make use of Ohm's law.
(a) Electric generators: voltaic cell uses chemical energy; dynamo uses mechanical energy.
Metals may be conveniently coated with compact copper to any desired thickness by means of voltaic electricity.
Volta also carried out his belief by constructing what is called a voltaic Pile.
With these words he handed her a piece of carbon, which he had taken from the voltaic pillar.
The voltaic battery I had at my disposal consisted of 140 pairs of plates four inches square, with double coppers.
Telegraphists and electro-platers are also indebted to him for his voltaic battery.
1813, designating electricity produced by chemical action, formed in recognition of Italian physicist Alessandro Volta (1745-1827), who perfected a chemical process used in electrical batteries, + -ic.
