Oersted: The Beginnings of Electromagnetism. Experiment No. 17.
Presented is a discussion of the events of the 20-year lapse between the invention of the pile in 1800 by Volta, and Hans Christian Oersted's famous definitive paper "Effects of a Current of Electricity on the Magnetic Needle." Students are thus enabled to appreciate the climate of the time and the manner and significance of Oersted's discovery. Experiments and equipment for the experiments are described and illustrated.
