Macroscopic Attractive Forces Between Solid Surfaces Separated by 10-100 nm. II. Experimental Determination of Attractive Forces Between Mica Cylinders by Both Dynamic-Jump and Static-Jump Methods
Experiments are described that measure macroscopic attractive forces between two mica cylinders. The dynamic-jump method locates the unstable equilibrium point, which is present in the measuring system for a certain regime of separation, and uses the free vibrations of a spring-mounted mica cylinder.
