Kaufmann, " The Developments of the Electron Idea."
When a current passes from an electrolyte to a metal, the electron must be detached from the atom it was accompanying and chemical action be manifested at the electrode.
Attempts have been made to explain these various effects by the electron theory.4 Thermo-electric Quality.-The earliest observations of the effect of magnetization upon thermo-electric power were those of W.
Lorentz, on the general lines suggested by the electron-theory of molecular constitution.
Schuster and others, but first fully developed with astonishing results including the experimental discovery of the free electron by J.
