Edward Weston and the "Modern" Galvanometer Movement
Greenslade, Thomas B., Jr.
Physics Teacher, v46 n3 p162-164 Mar 2008
One of my favorite 19th century electrical scientists is Edward Weston, and one of my favorite devices for teaching the topics of electromagnetic forces and torques is the D'Arsonval galvanometer. The junction of these two topics is Weston's improved meter movement that has been used in analog meters for the past 125 years.
