When $\gamma$, the resistance to be measured, $a$, the resistance of the battery, and $\alpha$, the resistance of the galvanometer, are given, the best values of the other resistances have been shewn by Mr. Oliver Heaviside (Phil. Mag., Feb. 1873) to be

$c=\sqrt {a \alpha}$, $b=\sqrt {a \gamma \frac{\alpha + \gamma}{a + \gamma}}$, $\beta=\sqrt {\alpha \gamma\ \frac {a+\gamma}{\alpha +\gamma} }$
