These effects can be enormously magnified if we multiplythe primary and secondary wires by coiling them, well in-sulated from each other, on a cylinder (Figs. 69 and 70). Further, the more rapidly the magnet or the primary

If a core of soft iron be placed within the primarycoil, it will be found that the induced current is againstrengthened, for as the core becomes magnetized by thecurrent in the primary, we are now adding on to the in-ducing action of our primary current the inducing actionof a magnet also. (The permeability of the iron coreleads to a concentration of the magnetic lines of force.) 112 A Manual of Practical Medical Elfxtricity The current that is induced in the secondary circuit isin the opposite direction to the primary current at making,but in the same direction at breaking. K glance at the two diagrams (Figs. 66 and 67) willmake this plainer ; the circuit P is the primary one, andit includes a battery, a galvanometer, and a key. The
