Perhaps the most significant single change has been the adoption of the rationalized M.K.S. system of units, which is now increasingly used in teaching the subject. For the benefit of readers who find themselves in the transition stage of conversion from the C.G.S. to the M.K.S. system, a comprehensive comparison between the formulae in the two systems has been made, and we hope that this will be helpful to those who are not yet entirely conversant with the M.K.S. system. A standard work for degree and IEE students. It is also intended for the use of electrical engineers in general who need to know what the position is in regard to the ever increasing important topic of electrical measurements. A number of worked examples have been given as illustrations of points covered in the text, which is expressed in the rationalized MKS system of units. Most of the illustrations have been specially made for this book, but author is glad to acknowledge his indebetedness to the many firms and authorities who have very kindly supplied him with information, drawings, and photographs relating to their apparatus. Individual acknowledgments are made is the text.
