This work was undertaken with the initial intention of determining the specific resistance of various kinds of glass as a function of the temperature. Various methods of measuring the resistance of glass were tried. In this experimental work, 60 cycle alternating current was used throughout while the conductivity unit shown in Plate 1 proved a very satisfactory and convenient arrangement for comparing the resistance of glass at various temperatures. Time did not permit the measurement of specific resistances as intended.
