SOME years ago investigations were carried out concerning attractive forces between glass and quartz bodies with flat polished surfaces1. Due to the well-known hygroscopic behaviour2 of these surfaces, however, silica-gel obstacles were always present on the plates. These obstacles had a tendency to decrease the attractions and even to turn them into repulsions. Therefore metal plates have now been used instead of glass or quartz. The technique used was similar to that described earlier1. The… CONTINUE READING
