[Webster 1913 Suppl. + WordNet 1.5]
Note: The original form consisted of an extremely fine
platinum wire loop attached to terminals and inclosed
in a small glass or silver bulb. It operates by
increased resistance when subjected to the influence of
an electric current. In a later variety, called the
, wire is replace by a column of liquid in
a very fine capillary tube. A recent version has a
resistor composed of an iron wire in a glass bulb
containing hydrogen, with the temperature variation of
resistance such that the current passing through it
remains constant over a wide range of applied voltages.
