Description

Sectional committee: Physics

Not recommended for publication in Proceedings. The principle of the method 'involves nothing new or original'. Even the possible improvements that the author lists don't seem to improve the paper much. The author deals with the issue of the galvanometer 'too superficially'.

[Not published].

Endorsed on verso as received 20 January 1934.
