or other liquid included in the circuit. (R=B+L+W). Hence
 The vertical vibration of the wires cd, gf, (Fig I) occasions an alternate increase and
decrease in the resistance of the water (e). The maximum intensity
(I) of the current is reached when the minimum resistance (w) of the
water is attained; and the minimum intensity (i) when the maximum
resistance (W) is reached. Hence
(c) I=E/(B+L+w)
(d) i=E/(B+L+W)
 (w) Let the minimum resistance of one cell of water (w) = 50
(E) Let the electromotive force of one cell of battery (E) = 100
(W) Let the maximum resist. of one cell of water (W) = 100
(B) Let the internal resistance of one cell of batt.(B) = 10
(L) Let the resistance of the line (L) = 10
