Abstract

We report a history of inventing and constructing Rhuemkorff’s coil as well as clarify the mode of its operation. We present the equivalent scheme of such a coil with an electro-mechanical interrupter. We outline the development of the theoretical description of this device. We show and describe the equipment required for a lecture demonstration experiment with such a coil. We present the oscillogram we got of an electric signal produced in the primary circuit of the coil in the periodic mode of the electro-mechanic interrupter. The experiment described enables a teacher to deepen the students’ knowledge of the ancient sources of current.
