Abstract:

The feasibility of utilizing the effect of a conducting medium on the impedance of a small coil for the measurement of the conductivity of high temperature gases is first investigated theoretically and then developed experimentally. The method described is well suited for measuring the electrical conductivity of gases at high densities. Data which have been obtained for air in the range of 5 mhosmeter to 250 mhosmeter at atmospheric density are included to illustrate the use and feasibility of the experimental technique.
