The indicator equation for a seismogram from an electromagnetic seismograph is integrated under the assumption that the trace has the form of a suddenly beginning sinusoid. An expression for the velocity sensitivity is derived from the integrated result and applied to the particular case of a seismometer-galvanometer combination with natural frequencies of 2 Hertz-200 Hertz respectively. For that seismograph the dynamic velocity sensitivity at transducer—earth resonance is one-fifth of the steady-state harmonic sensitivity at resonance.
