Condensing electroscope(Physics), a form of electroscope in which an increase of sensibility is obtained by the use of a condenser.

(E*lec`tro*scop"ic) a. Relating to, or made by means of, the electroscope.

(E*lec`tro*stat"ic) a. Pertaining to electrostatics.

(E*lec`tro*stat"ics) n. (Physics) That branch of science which treats of statical electricity or electric force in a state of rest.

(E*lec`tro-ste"re*o*type) n. Same as Electrotype.

(E*lec`tro-tel`e*graph"ic) a. Pertaining to the electric telegraph, or by means of it.

(E*lec`tro-te*leg"ra*phy) n. The art or science of constructing or using the electric telegraph; the transmission of messages by means of the electric telegraph.

(E*lec`tro-ther`a*peu"tics) n. (Med.) The branch of medical science which treats of the applications agent.

(E*lec`tro-ther"man*cy) n. That branch of electrical science which treats of the effect of an electric current upon the temperature of a conductor, or a part of a circuit composed of two different metals.

1. (Physics) Of such a nature relatively to some other associated body or bodies, as to tend to the negative pole of a voltaic battery, in electrolysis, while the associated body tends to the positive pole; — the converse or correlative of electro-negative.

An element that is electro-positive in one compound may be electro-negative in another, and vice versa.

2. (Chem.) Hence: Positive; metallic; basic; — distinguished from negative, nonmetallic, or acid.

(E*lec`tro-pos"i*tive), n. (Chem. & Physics) A body which passes to the negative pole in electrolysis.

(E*lec`tro-punc`tu*ra"tion) E*lec`tro- punc`tur*ing (?; 135), n. (Med.) See Electropuncture.

(E*lec`tro-punc`ture) n. (Med.) An operation that consists in inserting needless in the part affected, and connecting them with the poles of a galvanic apparatus.

(E*lec"tro*scope) n. [Electro- + -scope: cf. F. électroscope.] (Physics) An instrument for detecting the presence of electricity, or changes in the electric state of bodies, or the species of electricity present, as by means of pith balls, and the like.
