On the Thermal Phenomena Produced by the Passage of Electricity Through Rarefied Gases 1

    Abstract

    A PORTION of the experiments described in this paper were made before the publication of Wiedemann's experiments on the same subject. The authors state that if they had known of the work of the German physicist they would probably not have undertaken the investigation, but they have continued the experiments and think them worthy of description as the methods employed differ from those of Wiedemann.
