Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1888 edition. Excerpt: ... mm., a current which caused a deflection of 30 mm. in the galvanometer, when shunted by 2 x 50 cm. of the rheostat, gave, when travorsing the gas from a to c, only a single bright layer at the spot where the sphere bordered on the cylinder. This layer was convex towards the anode. The rest of the space, with the exception of the glow-light about the kathode and of the positive light on the anode, was dark. The latter, as ordinarily, was convex towards the kathode. At a high rarefaction there was in the sphere of this vessel, just after closing the current, a faint luminous mist together with t the luminous stratum at the entrance to the cylindrical tube, and this, after a few moments, became transformed into a second luminous stratum which pushed the first into the cylindrical tube and took its place. In this case the new stratum was distinctly not formed at the anode as in cylindrical tubes. I have often obtained a single similar luminous stratum in cylindrical tubes at points where a solid object projected and somewhat contracted the section of the gas. Munster, May 14, 1879.

The interest aroused by iny vacuum apparatus, when exhibited in the Paris International Electrical Exhibition of 1881, not only in my colleagues, but also in lovers of natural science, seemed to show that the publication of a comprehensive account of the investigations thereon would be acceptable; it has been published in four papers in the Memoirs of the Imperial Academy of Vienna.
