Memorial (2006) to Mark Tesla’s 150th Birthday

Milan, an Engineering student and active Member of NTEC, shared these photos of a beautiful Tesla Memorial at McMaster University.  It is an endemic tree (Picea Omorika) and a plaque that was donated to the University by the McMaster Serbian employees and students.  It was given to McMaster to commemorate Tesla’s 150th birthday on July 10th, 2006!

The plaque features the formula for T, which is a unit of measure for Magnetic Fields as defined by the International System of Units (SI) and is represented by the equation: T=Wb/m2  This formula for T is also featured prominently on the 100 Serbian Dinar bill (shown below).
