Abstract

IN a recent letter, H. P. Berlage1 has ingeniously attempted to use the idea of a radial separation of electric charge, associated with degenerate matter in the interior of rotating celestial bodies, in order to derive Blackett's formula2, which seeks to connect the angular momentum of such a body with its magnetic moment.
