**zero**. If the isolated conductor has a positive charge and hencea positive potential, a negative charge will be induced on the other conductor.

When r is less than

**zero**, the losses in the device itself , i ( R ; + Ro ) , are morethan compensated by the power it supplies , but owing to the external circuit the

total losses are positive . However , when the total resistance R , is less than

**zero**...

If xı and X2 are any two solutions of Eq . ( C . 2 ) , i . e . , if when either xı or X , are

substituted for x in this equation , the left side becomes equal to

If xı and X2 are any two solutions of Eq . ( C . 2 ) , i . e . , if when either xı or X , are

substituted for x in this equation , the left side becomes equal to

**zero**, then x1 + x, is also a solution . This may readily be seen by substitution . A third solution ...
