Unformatted text preview: measure potential difference ( ∆ V) . This lead to use of four electrode array for each measurement. Measurement Practicalities Resulting measurement given as ∆ V=V P1-V P2 = ρ I/(2 π )*(1/r 1-1/r 2-1/r 3 +1/r 4 ). Can be rewritten ∆ V= ρ I*G/(2 π ) where G/2 π is the Geometrical Factor of the array. ρ...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
