FIGURE 21.8.4.- Burning voltage Vb versus applied current I, for hydrogen and nitrogen in the homopolar experiment. Vb is independent of current (degree of ionization) up to a maximum value related to the complete ionization. The plateau defines the limiting voltage VLm related to the critical velocity. (From Angerth et al., 1962.)
