Sella, reference may be made to Lord Kelvin's Baltimore Lectures, p. 317, where a higher estimate of the value of n is favoured.
Of flame collectors the two best known are Lord Kelvin's portable electrometer with a fuse, or F.
Of liquid collectors the representative is Lord Kelvin's water-dropping electrograph; while Benndorf's is the form of radium collector that has been most used.
It should be added that the modern theory of vortex-atoms (Lord Kelvin's) to explain the constitution of matter has but slight analogy with Cartesian doctrine, and finds a parellel, if anywhere, in a modification of that doctrine by Malebranche.

(26), that distribution, together with the point-charge +q at A, will make a distribution of electric force at all points outside the sphere 2 See Lord Kelvin's Papers on Electrostatics and Magnetism, p. 144.
Lord Kelvin's experiment with a current of gas forced through a porous plug is also given.
Rankine, was therefore much vivified by Lord Kelvin's specification (Comptes Rendus, 1889) of a material gyrostatically constituted medium which would possess this character.
One of the best known of these is Lord Kelvin's multicellular voltmeter.

Lord Kelvin's mirror galvanometer was first used in receiving signals through the short-lived 1858 cable.
Lord Kelvin's contributions to the science of exact electric measurement 2 were enormous.

[Lord Kelvin's formula (I) may be applied to find the surf acetension of a clean or contaminated liquid from observations upon the length of waves of known periodic time, travelling over the surface.
