Abstract

In my previous article1 on apparatus named after physicists and physics teachers, I discussed five relatively common pieces of apparatus from the 1875–1910 era. Now I will go back to the 18th and early‐19th centuries to discuss eponymous2 apparatus that we are still using in lecture demonstrations.
