I believe User:Rotating magnetic field is a sockpuppet of User:Reddi. --ScienceApologist 01:52, 15 June 2006 (UTC)

Believe what you want. Rotating magnetic field

I belive it too. Reddi has a severe revert limit imposed William M. Connolley 15:50, 15 June 2006 (UTC)
Believe what you want. What you believe isn't true. Rotating magnetic field

No evidence that Tesla identified the rotating magnetic field before 1888[edit]

There is no historical proof of that !! Please update the historical section givinig the right credit to the real descoverer: Galileo Ferraris.

According to Harvard University Professor of History; William L. Langer, who compiled and edited 'An Encyclopedia of World History', page 555, Nikola Tesla discovered the rotating magnetic field in 1877 which was what made the long distance transmission of electric power possible.174.1.40.37 (talk) 04:32, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
And the source cited in this article says Galileo Ferraris probably did. When trying to weigh RS you should take into account whether the source is reliable for the statement being made, re: a work specifically on the "electrification in Western society" vs a a general "An Encyclopedia of World History". When sources disagree you describe the disagreement. Also check the source, if it says 1877 its flat out wrong. Tesla claims he did it in 1882.

"Rotating" Magnetic Fields[edit]

Magnetic fields neither move nor rotate but may change in magnitude and direction over time for any given point in space. This is definitional. The very title of the article is nonsequiter and compounded throughout.

As such, this is a nonsense article.

Instead, given a static magnetic field to one observer, to another observer in relative motion, the field is "rotated" in space-time (a Lorentz boost) such that there appears to be both a magnetic and an electric field. 2001:5B0:2BFF:EF0:0:0:0:3C (talk) — Preceding undated comment added 18:06, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
