|Title||Unpublished paper, 'On the relative speed of the electric wave through submarine cables of different lengths; and a unit of speed for comparing electric cables' by C F [Cromwell Fleetwood] Varley|
|Description||Varley gives the results of some experiments which were undertaken to determine, first, the relative speed of the electric wave through cables of various lengths; secondly, the decelerating effect of the iron covering of the cable; and thirdly, methods for the increase of the speed of the electric wave. |
Marked on front as 'Archives 1863'. Includes two pages of diagrams of submarine cables.
Received and read 19 June 1862. Communicated by [George Gabriel] Stokes.
Whilst the Royal Society declined to publish this paper in full, an abstract of the paper was published in volume 12 of the Proceedings of the Royal Society as 'On the relative speed of the electric wave through submarine cables of different lengths, and a unit of speed for comparing electric cables by bisecting the electric wave'.
