Jan 18, 2017 · Charles Wheatstone’s name was once familiar to students because they used his eponymous bridge to measure resistances. That usage seems to be disappearing—we all have access to digital ohmmeters—but the techniques that he developed for making electrical measurements can still be used with profit. Also, his work with measuring very short time intervals and his work with musical. Thus, in 1857, only twenty years after the invention of the telegraph, Sir Charles Wheatstone introduced the first application of paper tapes as a medium for the preparation, storage, and transmission of data. Sir Charles' paper tape used two rows of holes to represent Morse's dots and dashes. In 1812 Cuvier published this four-volume illustrated collection of his papers on palaeontology, osteology and stratigraphy. It was followed in 1817 by his famous Le règne animal, available in the Cambridge Library Collection both in French and in Edward Griffith's expanded English translation 1827–35.

Wheatstone began his association with the Royal Institution of Great Britain also known as the Royal Institute, founded in 1799 in the mid-1820s, writing papers to be presented by close friend and RI member Michael Faraday1791–1869 because he was too shy to do it himself. Early Inventions.
Sir Charles Wheatstone, a scientific polymath, was an entrepreneur and inventor, a teacher and a showman, with a brilliant mind that continually asked, “what if?” His family had a music business on the Strand in London, where his father taught and made flutes, and his older brother ran the manufacturing part of the operation.

4. Who invented the Wheatstone bridge? The Wheatstone bridge is an electrical circuit for the precise comparison of resistances. Sir Charles Wheatstone 1802-1875 never claimed to have invented it, but he did more than anyone else to invent uses for it. The first description of the bridge was by Samuel Hunter Christie 1784-1865 in 1833. About this Item: Institution of Engineering and Technology, United Kingdom, 2001. Hardback.
