electro- + -metric

Examples

  • Since the presence of radium could often not be detected by the balance or by the spectroscope, novel electrometric methods had to be developed.

  • The enumeration of alpha particles is done by an electrometric method due to Rutherford; this method has been brought to perfection by means of a photographic recording apparatus.

    Marie Curie - Nobel Lecture

  • They are identifiable either by the electrometric method, or very simply by the impression they produce on a photographic plate.

    Marie Curie - Nobel Lecture

  • Radioactive analysis by electrometric methods allows us to calculate to within 1% a thousandth of a milligram of radium, and to detect the presence of 10-10 grams of radium diluted in a few grams of material.

    Marie Curie - Nobel Lecture

  • (Fig. 2), in which the fine wire that served as an electrometric needle was of magnetized steel suspended by a cotton thread.

  • Needless to say, the place for such an electrometric installation was hardly the crowded and damp little room in which I had to set it up.

    Pierre Curie

  • We had been obliged to start them in an abandoned storeroom across a court from the workroom where we had our electrometric installation.

    Pierre Curie

  • During the course of their experiments on piezo-electricity the Curies were obliged to employ electrometric apparatus, and, not being able to use the quadrant electrometer known at that time, they developed a new form of that instrument, better adapted to their necessities.
