|Abstract||Experiments made in a parallel-plate arrangement, where one of the plates is the ground plane and the other a positively charged dielectric sheet, show that at low air pressure the dielectric injects streamers onto the surrounding air. The similarities and differences between the streamers thus produced and those emitted from electrodes are discussed. The streamers here obtained were found to have diameters and speeds that are clearly dependent on pressure. Often the streamers were seen to decelerate markedly to the point of coming to a complete stop and on occasions even returning back to the dielectric they came from. The deceleration and the reflection of the streamers are attributed to a virtual anode created by the electrostatic image of the head's charge behind the ground plane. Field calculations performed corroborate this hypothesis. Through the use of an equation of motion of the positive head, it is then possible to obtain an estimate of the magnitude of its charge. The charge thus obtained was found to be in the 2.5–26 nC range.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
