Asked in Inventions, Morse Code
What was Samuel F.B. Morse famous for?
Samuel Morse is most famous for inventing the telegraph which is a means of communication by sending a series of dots and dashes over electrical wires to send a message. These series of dots and dashes came to be known as Morse Code. ...

How a message transimitted by telegraph?
The operator beats on a telegraph key which sends an electrical impulse over the wires to a receiver at the other end. Both the sender and the receiver have an understanding of Morse Code. The sender translates the message to a series of dots and dashes (._ A ) (SOS = ...---...). My code is pretty rusty; I don't get many messages by Morse Code anymore. The receiver translates the code back to language. ...

Where did Samuel Morse get the idea for the Morse Code?
when he was on a ship he herd someone talking about the flow of electricity and thought maybe sound can travel though wires too. so he started working on the Morse code. ...

How does a telegraph send a message?
First, wires (like telephone wires) were strung between major cities. One wire fed into the telegraph keying machine, as shown above. The Telegraph Operator tapped on the lever (shown on the left - the black circular pad). The tappings represented letters of the alphabet that made up the words in the message. (Messages were kept very short!) The taps that formed letters created a signal. This was called Morse Code. The signal was carried through the overhead wires strung between telegraph poles...
What does a telegraph mean?
A means of comunication by wires over a long distance. Pulses of electric current carry information, most commonly using Morse code. These are sent and received by simple equipment. A hand operated switch called a key sends the message. The message is received on the other end by a simple clicking device, a pen recorder or a pair of headphones. ...
How do you make a Morse coder out of household objects?
wait, never mind. I made my Morse coder with a paper clip and tested but all i got was a *chook* sound when i conected the wires and a *shchchshhshshchhshchhcshhshh* sound when i fiddled with the connection. ...
Does electricity move better through thick or thin wires?
Thick wires - they have less resistance. Electricity moves better through thin wires. ...
Asked in Telecommunications, Morse Code
What was Morse code made for?
It is used in the military, often referred to as "dots and dashes." It uses a sequence of blinking lights or short/long taps. Samuel Morse devised the code to send messages along wires. The dots and dashes were arranged to represent each letter ( A= .- E=. T=- etc.). The wires paralleled the railroads, originally, and the railroad station was where most people went to send "wires" or telegrams. ...

How did Samuel Morse's telegraph work?
The old fashioned Morse telegraph system used wires similar to telephone lines but did not use speech. Messages were sent from one place to another by using a series of short and long electrical on/off signals - called dots and dashes - in unique patterns which Morse invented to represent letters, numbers, spaces and other characters. This coding system soon became known as "The Morse Code". Another answer A Morse telegraph works by someone sending a series of long and short electric pulses through...
Asked in Telecommunications, Morse Code
Did the Morse code use dots and dashes to send messages over wires?
Close... the things they transmitted over the wires were actually sounds. They just called tham dots for the shorter ones and dashes for the longer ones. ...
Asked in Physics, Magnetism, Circuits
When electrical currents flow in the same direction through two wires the wires attractwhy?
The magnetic field between the wires is decreased and the field binding the wires is increased and attracts the wires. ...
What is the farthest distance you could comunicate using a telegraph?
Electrical tapping signals that are transmitted via electrical wire can travel as far as the wire goes. Early telegraph communications traveled 40 to 50 miles on low speed telegraph wires. With repeaters installed in the wiring to boost the signal, there is no limit in distance. I doubt there are many telegraph systems operating today. It is interesting to consider that Morse code, or the spelling out of words in long and short audio signals, has similarities to digital technology. Digital signals are...
