TitlePaper, 'The electro-chemical effect on magnetising iron. Part II' by Thomas Andrews
DescriptionAndrews writes: 'The novel electro-chemical effects observed between a magnetised and an unmagnetised bar when in circuit in certain solutions, recorded in the first part of this research, were of such an interesting character that I thought it desirable to extend the investigation. The present memoir contains the results of a further study of these magnetochemical phenomena, which were found to be more marked and characteristic when experimenting with some of the reagents herein described.' Includes a note to the printer on the cover page. Cutouts throughout the paper correspond to the locations of figures. For part one, see PP/10/56.
