TitlePaper, 'On electro-molecular wave' by Jagadis Chunder Bose
DescriptionBose writes: 'If we take a rod of metal and strike it at any point, a wave of molecular disturbance will travel outwards from the point of origin. In the present paper it will be shown that the wave of molecular disturbance is accompanied by a wave of electrical disturbance; demonstration will also be given of various electromotive effects due to molecular disturbance.'

Annotations in ink throughout. Includes 30 diagrams and graphs and five photographs relating to Bose's experimental results.
