This new edition like the first edition provides a comprehensive and coherent account of static electric phenomena and concepts based on a mathematical-physical approach. It is intended for the nonspecialists interested in understanding the electrostatic concepts, and for the specialized engineer who may not be familiar with the basic fundamentals. This work has been updated to include new and expanded material on charge decay, charge neutralization by air ions, breakdown between conductors with different electrode geometry and a completely rewritten chapter on electrostatic measurements with special emphasis put on showing the difficulty in relating the voltage of a conductor with a…
