Hysteresis – Charles Proteus Steinmetz

“Eickemeyer wanted to expand into electrical motors and generators, a brand new field in 1889.”

HyperPhysics is an exploration environment for concepts in physics which employs concept maps and other linking strategies to facilitate smooth navigation. For the most part, it is laid out in small segments or “cards”, true to its original development in HyperCard. The entire environment is interconnected with thousands of links, reminiscent of a neural network..

Ampere Law at HyperPhysics

Ampere’s Law at HyperPhysics

“Ampere’s Law states that for any closed loop path, the sum of the length elements times the magnetic field in the direction of the length element is equal to the permeability times the electric current enclosed in the loop.”

Some things you can find there -CB & Ham radios, Walkie-talkie (GMRS/FRS) radios and Shortwave & multiband radios.

RadioShack- Audio Video Electronics

The company was started as Radio Shack in 1921 in Boston, Massachusetts, by two brothers, Theodore and Milton Deutschmann, who wanted to provide equipment for the cutting-edge field of amateur, or ham radio.

RadioShack- Audio Video Electronics

Theodore and Milton Deutschmann opened a one-store retail and mail-order operation in the heart of downtown Boston. They chose the name, “Radio Shack,” which was a term for the small, wooden structure that housed a ship’s radio equipment. The Deutschmanns thought the name was appropriate for a store that would supply the needs of radio officers aboard ships, as well as “ham” radio operators.

These pages are extremely useful for an entry into the Robotics Wonderland, a little electronics ability is enough for you to start learning robotics. Robotics is the only science that covers everything almost .. Mechanical, Electrical, Electronics, Embedded, Computing, Networking, Automation and Wireless Technologies. Some advanced robots include probably every science and skill known to mankind. So make a start today. Learn Robotics!
