  2. The armature S' was removed and the ear placed as before against M2 Upon plucking S no sound was audible from M2
  3. Circuit (cMd-iM2f-c). No battery employed. Upon plucking S S1 could be felt to tremble. Upon placing the ear against M2 a faint musical tone could be perceived each time S was plucked.
  4. Same arrangement as last but a + b crossed so as to make a closed circuit aM'ba Sound audible at M2 as before when S was plucked.
  5. No sound audible from M2 when S' was
