Abstract

Uniformly shaped sections of raw potatoes were placed between parallel plane electrodes and subjected to a constant potential. The potential drops existing between one electrode and various points in the potatoes were measured. The equi-potential surfaces were found to be planes parallel to the surface of the terminal electrodes. The potentials of these planes were found to vary with time and previous passage of current. The relative size of the probing electrodes used influenced the shape of the potential distribution curves.
