Abstract : Section I is a study of the production of negatively charged liquid particles sprayed from a capillary meniscus. The fluid sprayed is glycerol which is doped with several different common salts to increase the conductivity. Section II is a summary of a previous annual report in which a theoretical model is developed for electrostatic spraying from a capillary. This model is found experimentally valid for low concentrations and in the capillary field ranges between 25,000,000 volts/meter and 70,000,000 volts/meter. Section III, Section IV and Section V are summaries of previously reported work and uncompleted work. Section III deals with both bulk and surface electrokinetic pumping. Theoretical models are developed for several geometries and are verified experimentally. Section IV is a summary of work dealing with secondary emission from glycerol. Glycerol was found to have the same secondary emission curves as other liquids with similar structures. Section V is a description of a Hall cell apparatus which will be used to study the mobility of carrier in liquids.
