The result of this examination showed that the calculated value of L should be multiplied by <s>1.01608<\s> 1.0618 to obtain the value of L which would give the most consistent results We have therefore L by calculation 430165 meters Probable value of L by method of least squares <s>456748<\s> 456748meters Result of rough experiment with the Electric Balance see [paragraph]46 410000 meters The value of L calculated from the dimensions of the coil is probably much more accurate than either of the other determinations.
