Litharge powder was mixed with distilled water and turned to pasted form. This was stuffed in glass tubes of moderate length at their middle portions, and direct electric current was passed through the mass. Positive and negative patterns due to electrolytic polarisation was produced in the mass facing each other at definite positions in the axial direction of the cylindrical mass, the position of the negative being near the positive end of the mass. The ratios of the distance P of the positive position from the negative end to the length l of the mass were found to be independent of the length in the average.
The value of Pl is affected by the modification of litharge, but not by the diameter, the length of the mass and the terminal voltage.
