The time-honored methods of measuring capacitance are the deflection method, with a ballistic galvanometer, and the bridge method, using a current galvanometer if by D.C., or a pair of earphones if by A.C. In recent years the vacuum tube oscillator, with some type of detector, has made it possible to measure capacitances more accurately and more readily.
