Abstract : An attempt has been made during the past year to understand the problems of electric spraying from positive and negative capillaries and to obtain quantitative data on specific charge distribution as functions of spraying potential and mass flow rate. In addition, an effort has been made to understand the behavior of liquids in which an electric field is present. Some work has been done on the effects on specific charge of electron bombardment on the liquid-capillary interface during spraying. The results of this study were inconclusive and will be expanded and reported later. Section 1 is a study of electrohydrodynamic spraying. This work included studies of the variation of specific charge with parameters such as mass-flow rate and electric field strength of the capillary tip. Theoretical and experimental results, conclusions and recommendations for further work are included in this section. In Section 2 is found a study of electrokinetic behavior of insulating liquids. The relationships between pumping phenomena in liquids and parameters such as field strength, ion mobility and geometry were obtained and discussed. Recommendations for further research in this area are also included.
