- having conductivity
- having to do with conduction
The definition of conductive is something that can conduct or transfer heat, sound or electricity.
Coils that conduct heat or transfer heat are an example of coils that would be described as conductive.
(comparative more conductive, superlative most conductive)
- Or conductive telegraphy not necessitating a continuous cable.
- He caused the relay in series with the sensitive tube to set in action not only a telegraphic instrument but also the electromagnetic tapper, which was arranged so as to administer light blows on the under side of the sensitive tube when the latter passed into the conductive condition.
- When electric waves fell on the antenna they caused the mercury-steel junction to become conductive during the time they endured, and the siphon recorder therefore to write signals consisting of short or long deflexions of its pen and therefore notches of various length on the ink line drawn on the strip of telegraphic tape.
- Rathenau of Berlin made many experiments in 1894 in which, by means of a conductive system of wireless telegraphy, he signalled through 3 m.
- A very ingenious call-bell or annunciator for use with inductive or conductive systems of wireless telegraphy was invented and described in 1898 by S.
