The Sex Life Of An Electron

THE SEX LIFE OF AN ELECTRON

One night when his charge was high, Micro Farad decided to get a cute little coil to help him discharge. He picked up Milly Amp and took her for a ride on his megacycle. They rode across Wheatstone Bridge, around Sine Wave, and stopped in a magnetic field by a flowing current.

Micro Farad, attracted by Milly Amp's characteristic curves, soon had her at minimum resistance and her field excited. He laid her on the ground potential, raised her frequency, lowered her capacitance, and pulled out his high voltage probe. He inserted it in parallel and almost short circuited her shunt. Finally excited, Milly cried, "Mho, Mho, give me Mho."

With his tube at maximum and her coil vibrating from the current flow, she soon reached saturation. The excess current had made her pretty hot. Micro's capacitance was rapidly discharging and draining nearly every electron. They fluxed all night, trying various connections and sockets until his bar magnet had lost all its field. Milly Amp tried self-induction and almost ruined her selenoid.

With his battery fully discharged, Micro was unable to excite his transformer, so they ended up reversing polarity and blowing each other's fuses. Watt a spark!
