Nikola Tesla was an inventor and engineer. He is mostly known for contributing to making commercial electricity. He is also given credit for forming the basis of modern alternating current, also known as AC. Tesla was a big rival of Edison. He invented many things that we use in our everyday lives.
I picked Nikola Tesla to do my project on because I read a book over the summer called Distant Waves . Tesla played a big role in the story and I was interested in him ever since. In the novel he was a great man who didn't even care about money.
I miss Dane so much. I feel as though I have a heart ache. My dear brother was killed in a horse-back riding accident yesterday. The funeral is planned to be tonight. Dad won’t even talk. Mom tells me we will move to Gospic. But I don’t want to go. I rather be in the same place that I would wake up everyday and see my only brother.
Associated Press - Nikola Tesla has once again made an amazing new invention. He calls it the “Tesla coil”. It produces high current, high voltage, and high frequency AC electricity. The uses for this technology are limitless. He uses the coils to do other experiments having to do with electricity. It operates differently than a conventional transformer. The Tesla coil’s windings are more loosely winded than a conventional transformer. The coils are used in sparkgap radio transmitters.
” If Edison had a needle to find in a haystack, he would proceed at once with the diligence of the bee to examine straw after straw until he found the object of his search. I was a sorry witness of such doings, knowing that a little theory and calculation would have saved him ninety per cent of his labor.”
