Sectional Committee: Physics

Not recommended for publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London'. The subject is of great interest, but recent work by Ernest Rutherford and the referee has superceded some of the work done by the author in the current paper. Suggests the author defer the paper until these new results have been seen. Suggests the author get in touch to discuss the new results.
