Excerpt from The Influence of Density of Gas on the Formation of Corona: Dissertation It was shown by Ryan1 that for the one size of conductor which he used the critical intensity is a linear function of the pressure from 40 to 90 cm. Of mercury. A similar relation was shown to hold for variations with temperature between 21 and 93 deg. Cent. Watson published a set of experiments2 in 1909 showing a linear relation between pressure and critical intensity for the case of continuous voltage. His range of pressure was from 36. To 76 cm. Of mercury and of size of conductor from to cm. He also gave curves showing the amount of current passing. In the earlier papers of this series numerous curves were given showing a linear relation between critical intensity and pressure from 38 to 100 cm. The conductors used ranged in diameter from to cm. Some experiments were also made showing a linear relation between critical intensity and temper ature. Only one size of conductor was used; The range of temperature was from 8 to 41 deg. Cent.
