Стр. 3 - A wheel, revolving with a rapidity sufficient to render its spokes invisible, when illuminated by a flash of lightning, is seen for an instant with all its spokes distinct, as if it were in a state of absolute repose ; because...
Стр. 4 - The velocity of electricity is so great, that the most rapid motion which can be produced by art appears to be actual rest when compared with it. A wheel revolving with celerity sufficient to render its spokes invisible, when illuminated by a flash of lightning, is seen for an instant with all its spokes distinct, as if it Were in a state of absolute repose ; because, however rapid the rotation may be, the light has come and already ceased before the wheel has had time to turn through a sensible...
