Book in PDF format (7 Mb): http://www.ifi.unicamp.br/~assis/Weber-in-English-Vol-4.pdf. This book can be ordered from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1987980298. This is the fourth of 4 volumes of the book “Wilhelm Weber’s Main Works on Electrodynamics Translated into English”. This fourth Volume begins with the English translation of Gauss' posthumous paper published in 1867. He arrived at a force law depending on the positions and velocities of the interacting electrified particles from which he could deduce not only electrostatics, but also the force between current elements. Then comes Carl Neumann's 1868 paper on the principles of electrodynamics. In this work Neumann introduced the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulations of Weber's electrodynamics. Moreover, he also showed that Weber's law was compatible with the principle of the conservation of energy. Then comes Weber's 1871 Sixth major Memoir on Electrodynamic Measurements. He showed once more in detail that his force law was compatible with the principle of the conservation of energy. Moreover, he studied the two-body problem according to his electrodynamics. He showed that in some conditions two particles electrified with charges of the same sign might attract one another. This Volume also contains the English translation of Tisserand's 1872 paper on the motion of planets around the Sun according to Weber's law. He calculated, for instance, the precession of the perihelion of the planets. Weber's Seventh major Memoir on Electrodynamic Measurements was published in 1878. It is devoted to the energy of interaction. His Eight major Memoir, thought to be written in the 1880's, was published only posthumously in 1894 in his collected works. It is related to the connection of Weber’s force with the law of gravitation. Moreover, it contains his mature planetary model of the atom in which the nucleus is held together by purely electrodynamic forces according to Weber's law. This volume closes with an overview of Weber's law applied to electromagnetism and gravitation, together with some possible future developments of his theory. The main topics are the unifications in physics: (a) Ampère's unification of magnetism, electrodynamics and electromagnetism; (b) Weber's unification of the laws of Coulomb, Ampère and Faraday; (c) unification of optics with electrodynamics; (d) unification of nuclear physics with electrodynamics; (e) applications of Weber's law for gravitation; (f) unification of gravitation with electrodynamics; and (g) unification of inertia with gravitation, in particular, the implementation of Mach's principle and the deduction of Newton's second law of motion from Weber's force applied to gravitation.

This is the third of 4 volumes of the book “Wilhelm Weber’s Main Works on Electrodynamics Translated into English”. This third Volume contains Weber's main works related to diamagnetism, including his Third major Memoir on Electrodynamic Measurements (1852). These works are followed by three papers published by Weber and Rudolf Kohlraush in 1855-1857 in which they presented the measurement of Weber's fundamental constant c appearing in his force law. Weber and Kohlrausch's 1857 work is the Fourth major Memoir on Electrodynamic Measurements. Soon after this measurement, Kirchhoff and Weber succeeded in deducing the complete telegraph equation from Weber's electrodynamics. Their works were published in 1857 and 1864. They showed that when the resistance of the wire was negligible, the telegraph equation reduced to the wave equation. The velocity of propagation of an electric wave along the wire was equal to the known light velocity in vacuum. This remarkable result of Weber's electrodynamics indicated for the first time in the history of physics a direct and quantitative connection between electrodynamics and optics. This volume contains the English translations of Kirchhoff's two papers of 1857, together with a paper by J. C. Poggendorff emphasizing the independent researches made by Weber and Kirchhoff on this subject in which both scientists arrived simultaneously at similar results. Weber's 1864 work is his Fifth major Memoir on Electrodynamic Measurements. The translation of this paper is also included in this Volume.

Book in PDF format (7 Mb): http://www.ifi.unicamp.br/~assis/Weber-in-English-Vol-2.pdf. This book can be ordered from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1987980255. This is the second of 4 volumes of the book “Wilhelm Weber’s Main Works on Electrodynamics Translated into English”. This second Volume begins with the text of the Gauss-Weber correspondence of 1845. It is related to Ampère's force between current elements and Weber's ideas about the unification of the electrostatic and electrodynamic laws. It is followed by a paper by Fechner published in 1845 in which he presented some qualitative ideas in the same direction. That is, to unify Ampère's force and Faraday's law of induction with electrostatics. To this end he suggested a force depending not only on the distance between the interacting electrified particles, but also on their velocities. At the end of his paper, Fechner mentioned that his work might be seen as a forerunner of Weber's investigations. Then comes Weber's First major Memoir on Electrodynamic Measurements, published in 1846. This work is probably Weber's most important publication. He introduced his bifilar electrodynamometer with which he could measure currents with high precision. Initially he utilized this instrument in order to prove Ampère' force. He then utilized Ampère's force between current elements in order to deduce his own force law between electrified particles. Weber's force between two electrified particles depends not only on their distance, but also on their relative velocity and relative acceleration. He showed that it was possible to unify the laws of Coulomb, Ampère and Faraday with his force law. This Volume contains also Weber's 1848 paper in which he introduced his velocity dependent potential energy. It is followed by Kirchhoff's 1849 paper on a deduction of Ohm's law in connection with the theory of electrostatics. This Volume finishes with Weber's Second major Memoir on Electrodynamic Measurements (1852). The main focus of this work was the absolute measure of resistance. Weber's Memoir contains also his pioneering calculation of the distribution of charges along the surfaces of resistive conductors carrying steady currents. In particular, he considered a cylindrical straight conductor and a resistive ring.

This is the first of 4 volumes of the book “Wilhelm Weber’s Main Works on Electrodynamics Translated into English”. It begins with Gauss' work on the absolute measure of the Earth's magnetic force. In this work Gauss introduced the absolute system of units in which electromagnetic magnitudes were measured based on the dimensions of length, mass and time (specifically millimeter, milligram and second). In particular, he obtained absolute measures of the Earth's magnetic force and of the magnetic moment of a magnetized bar. As he acknowledged in the paper, he was assisted by Wilhelm Weber in many ways. This volume also contains translations of other papers by Gauss, Weber and Wöhler up to 1842. They deal with the Magnetic Association created by Gauss and Weber, their instruments to perform high precision magnetic measurements including the unifilar and bifilar magnetometers, the composition of galvanic piles and the electrochemical equivalent of water. A large portion of Weber's works in physics was to implement and extend the absolute system of units. In particular, he created methods to effectively obtain high precision absolute measures of electric charge, electric current, electromotive force and resistance.

This book presents the planetary model of the atom developed by Wilhelm Weber (1804-1891) in the second half of the XIXth century, before Bohr's model. It is based on Weber's electrodynamic force of 1846, which depends on the distance between the interacting charges, their relative velocity and their relative acceleration. Weber showed that two interacting charges of the same sign could behave as if they had negative inertial masses when they were accelerated relative to one another, provided they were moving at very close distances smaller than a critical distance r_c. When this condition is fulfilled, these two charges of the same sign will attract one another, instead of repelling each other as usually observed. Weber then predicted that atoms might be composed of negative charges describing elliptical orbits around the positive nucleus, being attracted by the nucleus, while the positive particles composing the nucleus would also attract one another due to their negative inertial masses. Three main remarkable aspects of his model should be emphasized:

- I) Weber's prediction was made before the discovery of the electron (1897) and also before Rutherford's scattering experiments (1911). His model was also developed before the discovery of Balmer (1885) and Paschen (1908) series describing the spectral line emission of the hydrogen atom. Bohr's atomic model of the atom (1913), on the other hand, was invented in order to be compatible with these experimental findings. While Bohr's model was ad hoc, Weber's model was a real prediction.
- II) In Weber's model we don't need nuclear forces to stabilize the positive nuclei. After all, the positive particles of the nuclei are held together by purely electrodynamic forces. In modern physics, on the other hand, scientists had to postulate the existence of nuclear forces because they were no longer aware of Weber's electrodynamics. Therefore, after the existence of the positive nuclei was established, they were faced with the problem of explaining the stability of the nuclei against the repulsive Coulombian forces between its positively charged components. To this end they postulated the nuclear forces. With Weber's planetary model of the atom, on the other hand, we have an unification of electromagnetism with nuclear forces, before these two branches of physics were separated from one another. Even the stability of the nuclei was predicted and explained by Weber's electrodynamics.
- III) When Weber developed his model in the 1850s to 1870s, the electron and the positron were not known, as these two particles were only discovered in 1897 and 1932. Therefore, he could make only qualitative and algebraic calculations relative to his critical distance r_c. But when we utilize the known mass and charge of two positrons, for instance, and calculate Weber's critical distance below which these two particles begin to attract one another, we obtain a number of the order of magnitude of 10^{-15}m, that is, essentially the known size of the nuclei. This similarity between Weber's r_c for these fundamental particles and the size of the nuclei should not be a coincidence. I believe that Weber's electrodynamics presents not only the essence of the correct explanation for the stability of the nuclei, but also a justification for their measured size.

This book contains complete translations from French to Portuguese, with commentary, of the main works of Charles-Augustin de Coulomb (1736-1806). They include his French Academy prize-winning memoir of 1777 on the best manner of constructing magnetic needles, his torsion work of 1784 and his 7 major Memoirs on electricity and magnetism read at the Academy from 1785 to 1791. In his works he described his famous torsion balance and his proof plane device utilized for quantitative studies in physics. He arrived experimentally at the law of torsion of silk threads and metal wires, at the central force between electrified bodies varying as the inverse square of their distance (known in the textbooks as Coulomb's law), at the law of force between magnetic poles also varying as the inverse square of their separation, at the law of exponential decay with which an electrified body loses charge to the support and environment (charge leakage), at the distribution of electricity at the surface of charged conducting bodies of differing sizes and chapes in several configurations of electrostatic equilibrium, and in advanced methods of magnetization and production of artificial magnets. He also created a theory of magnetism based on molecular polarization. Michael Clarage's presentation of this book: https://michaelclarage.substack.com/p/coulombs-visit-to-portugal.

This book presents a translation from Greek to Portuguese, with commentary, of Archimedes' work "The Method". In 1906 Johan Ludvig Heiberg (1854-1928), a Danish philologist and historian of science, discovered a new text by Archimedes (287-212 BC). It was a letter addressed to Eratosthenes (285-194 BC), the famous Greek scientist responsible for the famous Alexandria Library and for the most precise determination of the radius of the Earth. This work of Archimedes has been since then called "The Method". Normally scientists utilize mathematics in order to deduce physical laws and the properties of bodies. Archimedes inverted this procedure with his method. He utilized physics in order to deduce mathematical laws. He created a new paradigm. In this letter he presented a heuristic method to calculate areas, volumes and centers of gravity of geometrical figures utilizing the law of the lever. In particular, he utilized this method to deduce for the first time in history extremely important mathematical magnitudes like the area and volume of a sphere. For this reason this method has been considered by some authors as a Copernican revolution. This book presents an analysis of this method, together with a complete translation of Archimedes's work, with commentary. In our discussion of this work we included several figures in order to clarify Archimedes' reasoning and illustrating several levers in equilibrium which were implicitly mentioned by Archimdes.

The printed book can be ordered from: http://www.culturaacademica.com.br/catalogo/stephen-gray-e-a-descoberta-dos-condutores-e-isolantes/. This book contains a complete and commented Portuguese translation of Stephen Gray's 10 papers on electricity, including his great discovery of conductors and insulators. This book presents the life and work of Stephen Gray (1666-1736). It is shown the knowledge of electricity until the time of Gray, some of his main contributions, and the influence of his work upon later researchers. The main discovery of Gray was to find in nature two kinds of substances with very different electrical properties. These substances are called nowadays conductors and insulators. He obtained some of the main properties of these substances. He succeeded in transmitting to metals and to other conductors, for the first time in history, the property of attracting light bodies placed in their neighborhoods. This phenomenon is called nowadays electrical induction or polarization. He also succeeded in electrifying insulated conductors through sparks or electrical discharges between these conductors and an electrified glass tube placed in their neighborhoods. Moreover, he created the first electrets in history, that is, substances presenting a long term electrification, showing also how to preserve temporally the electrification of bodies. This book presents the commented Portuguese translation of all his 10 papers on electricity. His experiments are contextualized, illustrated with didactic figures and explained based on the actual knowledge of physics. Some of the main electrical instruments are presented, like the versorium, the electroscope, the pendulous thread and the electric pendulum. This work presents the differences between modern glasses and those glasses of Gray’s time. His main experiments are reproduced with simple and cheap materials. At the end of this work, we discuss briefly on the relation of some aspects of this book with science education. There is a large bibliography at the end of the book.
