Abstract

One of my favorite 19th century electrical scientists is Edward Weston, and one of my favorite devices for teaching the topics of electromagnetic forces and torques is the D'Arsonval galvanometer.1 The junction of these two topics is Weston's improved meter movement that has been used in analog meters for the past 125 years.
