Magnetism, Weber's Theory of
The molecules of a magnetizable material by this theory are supposed to be magnets with their poles lying in every direction, and hence neutralizing each other. By magnetization these are supposed to be turned with their similar poles in the same direction, and their axis parallel, hence acting like a group of magnets. It is practically identical with Hughes' theory.
