Abstract : An observed change in the resistivity of a metal caused by electron bombardment can only be interpreted quantitiatively after certain corrections have been applied to account for unavoidable experimental complications. Three of the major corrections which must be applied in such experi ments are discussed, methods are developed for calculating their values, and graphs of numerical values are presented. The three corrections considered are: (1) the energy correction to account for the energy distribution of the bombarding electrons, (2) the scattering correction to account for the zig-zag path of the electrons through the sample, and (3) the surface correction to account for the influence of the sample surfaces on the measured resistivity.
