In investigating the response of an electromagnetic seismograph to various ground movements it is advantageous to have the solution of the differential equation as an integral. This is done by finding the Green's function, f(s), for the particular instrument. The angular movement of the galvanometer is then  
where x(t) is the ground movement and prime stands for the operator d/dt. It is sufficient to find one function, F(s), with dF/ds = f(s), to give the response to a displacement test, a tapping test, or a ground movement.
