THE THEORY OF THE DIELECTRIC CONSTANT OF POLYDISPERSE EMULSIONS.

E S RAJAGOPAL

Abstract


The distortion of a homogeneous dielectric liquid sphere placed in a uniform electric field is investigated theoretically. The results agree wtth those of Thachor and O'Konski, obtained by a different procedure. The effect of this distortion on the static dielectric constant of polydisperse emulsions is considered and it is shown that the effect increases if the particle sizes are increased. The exact shape assumed by the liquid drop in the electric field is investigated and shown to be a surface of revolution of a higher transcendental curve.
