This is inconvenient. It is easier to

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...
