Nature volume 127, page 367 (07 March 1931) | Download Citation



THIS book can be recommended to students reading for the B.Sc. examinations of the University of London. It gives the necessary groundwork for the electrical technology required in the examination. Very little knowledge of the calculus is required, and the author's aim has been to make the theoretical part of the subject easily intelligible to the average student. This naturally prevents him discussing many of the difficulties that arise. He gives, however, a fair number of references to advanced books and papers. We were pleased to notice that he has brought the nomenclature into line with the British Standard Glossary (published by the B.E.S.A.). The word ‘capacitance’ instead of 'capacity' (electrostatic) seems now to be generally adopted.
