Finally, fig. 12 shows an alternative float consisting of the disk e corre-sponding to fig. 11 A, the tube // passing the preferably conical capsule ppabout 1.5 cm. high and 5 cm. in diameter, of thin brass hermetically sealed.The tube // is prolonged below by the solid brass rod n or sinker. Whenplaced in the cup, fig. 11 a, or in a similar vessel, the water level is at wwand may be adjusted by dropping small weights down the tube //. Thesame method, fig. 13, is used for placing this level. The whole arrangement. Fig. 12.—Hydro-meter and diskcarried by air-chamber.

The essential part isthe tube// of copper about 0.5 cm. in diameter. This float is not intendedto rise and fall as in the case of fig. 11 a, but to move to a definite levelunder the influence of the electrical forces of the condenser. Water has been referred to as the liquid charge of the apparatus. It hasan advantage, inasmuch as the whole of the lower half of the condenser maybe earthed and the guard ring and disk are necessarily at the same potential.It has the very serious disadvantage, however, that large capillary forcesare involved, particularly in case of the wide stem of fig. 11 a. Hence acharge of kerosene oil or even of the heavier clear paraffin oil is preferable. In cases where the disk e in its uncharged position is to be
