RE: Electrical Pioneers quiz

Hi zogzog;
Thanks for the compliment. Actually I didn't know all of them. However I expect to have a litle more free computer time next week and I will probably google your list and refresh my memory about the ones I knew, and find out about the ones I didn't know.
BTW, Is William Stanley the Stanley of Stanley Steamer fame?
thanks
Respectfully

RE: Electrical Pioneers quiz

Zogzog--I feel pretty good about my score,since as a metallurgist, I got a C grade in EE301!

RE: Electrical Pioneers quiz

I would query answer D.

Swan invented the first incandescent light bulb that lasted for any practical length of time. He then worked with Edison to put it into mass production.

See for example:

"Swan invented the first incandescent light bulb that lasted for any practical length of time. He then worked with Edison to put it into mass production."

OK, you might have me there, but whose name is on the patent?

RE: Electrical Pioneers quiz

Woodward and Evans had the first incandescent bulb patent in 1875 (Edison later bought the rights to this patent at vast expense).
Swan had the first patent (UK) to include a carbonised filament in 1878.
Edison's patent (US) including a carbonised filament was approved in 1879.

I hope you looked that up, thats too much useless info to be clogging a brain

RE: Electrical Pioneers quiz

Who invented electric chair?

RE: Electrical Pioneers quiz

(OP)
Again I say Edison, to execute William Kremmler on aug 6th 1890. Many believe that this was the next step up from his experiments (open to the public) shocking elephants, horses, dogs, etc using Westinghouses AC system to show the world how dangerous AC was compared to his DC system.

RE: Electrical Pioneers quiz

Chair inventor Harold Brown would be the correct answer.

who was the first "dead man" to be electrocuted?

Luis

RE: Electrical Pioneers quiz

(OP)
OK, Harold brown invented it but Edison holds the patent. Brown worked for Edison when he invented the chair.
