- The magnet ' is wound to a resistance of
**amperes**with accumulators). - The instrument therefore does not begin to read from zero current, but from some higher limit which, generally speaking, is about one-tenth of the maximum, so that an ammeter reading up to io
**amperes**will not give much visible indication below i ampere. - Very convenient and accurate instruments based on the above principles have been devised by Lord Kelvin, and a large variety of these ampere balances, as they are called, suitable for measuring currents from a fraction of an ampere up to many thousands of
**amperes**, have been constructed by that illustrious inventor. - The value of the current in
**amperes**is then .?. - Thus the centi-ampere balance ranges from i to ioo centi-
**amperes**, the deci-ampere balance from i to ioo deci-**amperes**, the ampere balance from i to ioo**amperes**, the deka-ampere balance from i to ioo**amperes**, the hecto-ampere balance from 6 to 600**amperes**, and the kilo-ampere balance from ioo to 2500**amperes**.
