Determination of the Faraday by Means of the Iodine Coulometer

  • V. E. Bower
Conference paper


There have been many efforts (1, 2, 3, 4, 5) to measure the Faraday by direct electrochemical methods. Of these only the experiments employing the oxidation of iodide (3), the electrode-position of silver (4), and the electrodissolution of silver (5) have ever been viewed seriously as determinations of a fundamental physical constant.
