Die Faden-Elektrometer


    IT is useful to have such a complete account of the string electrometers. Although the theory relates to electrometers in general, the greater part of the book deals with string electrometers. Their construction, use and calibration are described in great detail. The double-string electrometer is treated first and the single-string second. In the latter case is a first account of the attainment of enhanced sensitiveness by using such potentials and distances between plates that the string is approaching an unstable condition. The measurement and effect of the capacity of the instrument are described at length.
