Eidetic images (also known as primary memory images) are clearer and richer in detail than the usual memory images and are also more intense and of better quality. Except that the subject recognizes the eidetic image as a memory experience, the phenomenon is analogous to a hallucination. Visual eidetic imagery is more common than auditory.
Eidetic people can readily reproduce in their minds, with great accuracy and detail, what they have seen recently or from some past event. Eidetic imagery is considered by some to be one of the most important elements for the mastery of chess.
The existence of an electric field is made known by its effect on another electric charge, and the existence of a magnetic field can be made known by its effect on another magnet.
A field around a magnet or an electric current will deflect a small magnet; such as, a compass needle, in a particular direction when it is placed in such a field.
The direction in which the north pole of the magnet points is normally called the direction of the field and the direction of the field generally follows curved lines of force.
2. An emergency braking system which is automatically applied to an electric-powered apparatus when a power failure occurs.
3. An electric brake design in which the electromagnet is a small disc (spot) attached to an actuating lever is supplied by current flowing through a solenoid, or through an electromagnet which is attracted to disks on the rotating member, actuating the brake shoes.
This force is counteracted by the force of a compression spring.4. The contact component of an electric braking system.
