may be thought of for these experiments as an infinite reservoir of charge at an

arbitrary potential

a positive potential, a negative charge will be induced on the other conductor.

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

If b becomes very large, Vb approaches

for the capacity between the cylinder and the plane. The equipotentials and lines

of force above the plane are the same as in the preceding case and h = c/2.

**zero**. Vb is therefore**zero**in the equationfor the capacity between the cylinder and the plane. The equipotentials and lines

of force above the plane are the same as in the preceding case and h = c/2.

The most important information concerning this effect comes from an analysis of

the current as a function of the retarding potential necessary to reduce it to

and the wave length or frequency of the light falling on the plate. For light of any ...
