This work was undertaken with the view of finding the alternating-current resistance of a specimen of soda-lime glass, and of determining how it changes with time, temperature, and amount of current passed. In all runs, we have restricted our work to the case of a one to one replacement of sodium ions for sodium ions by using a fused mixture of sodium-nitrate and sodium-nitrate as the electrolyte which makes contact to each side of the glass. Electrodes of both platinum and nickel were used to make contact with the fused salts.
