Excerpt from The Journal of the Institution of Electrical Engineers, 1917, Vol. 55
F 0000003 531 V' dyne. For example, if V: I volts, we have F 7943 dynes 08097 gramme weight.
Conversely, by weighing the attraction F between the spheres we can readily find the voltag... e 2 V between them. This method can easily be applied to measure the voltage of high-pressure transformers. It is to be noticed that the voltage is completely determined when the dimensions of the Spheres and the force of attraction between them are given. In standardizing a voltmeter of this kind no electrical measurements are necessary. The spheres, however, must not be too near to one another otherwise a spark will pass between them.
