An Investigation of Wind-Induced Foam Lines on Lake Mendota
This paper is concerned chiefly with wind streaks-lines of foam and debris that align themselves parallel to the direction of the wind. It is the intent of this paper, through research done on Lake Mendota in Madison, ...
Underwater Response Characteristics of Electrostatic Transducers
Electrostatic transducers have been used as receivers and transmitters of ultrasonic waves at frequencies up to one megacycle per second. Transducers with solid dielectric are widely used, particularly for ultrasonics ...
Construction of a Beta-Ray Spectrometer
During the last three months I have been involved in the construction of a beta-ray spectrometer. This paper is intended as a report on this project. The theory of beta-decay is treated only in such depth as is necessary ...
Conversion of Electrical to Acoustic Energy by a Spark
In this research, an attempt is made to view the spark from energy considerations. An insight into the relationship between the energy used to produce a spark and the transformation of this initial energy into other ...
