Use **electromotive** in a sentence

- producing an electric current through differences in potential
- relating to electromotive force

adjective

Of, relating to, or producing electric current.

- If a longitudinally magnetized wire is twisted, circular magnetization is developed; this is evidenced by the transient
**electromotive**force induced in the iron, generating a current which will deflect a galvanometer connected with the two ends of the wire. - The tranverse
**electromotive**force is equal to KCH/D, where C is the current, H the strength of the field, D the thickness of the metal, and K a constant which has been termed the rotatory power, or rotational coefficient. - Hall, the positive sign indicating that the
**electromotive**force is in the same direction as the mechanical force acting upon the conductor. - - The so-called " ballistic " method of measuring induction is based upon the fact that a change of the induction through a closed linear conductor sets up in the conductor an
**electromotive**force which is proportional to the rate of change. - If the conductor consists of a coil of wire the ends of which are connected with a suitable galvanometer, the integral
**electromotive**force due to a sudden increase or decrease of the induction through the coil displaces in the circuit a quantity of electricity Q=SBns R, where SB is the increment or decrement of induction per square centimetre, s is the area of the coil, n the number of turns of wire, and R the resistance of the circuit.
