His early contributions to electrostatics and electrometry are to be found described in his Reprint of Papers on Electrostatics and Magnetism (1872), and his later work in his collected Mathematical and Physical Papers.
To every proposition in electrostatics there is thus a corresponding one in the hydrokinetic theory of incompressible liquids.

With the aid of this apparatus, the principal facts of electrostatics can be experimentally verified, as follows: Experiment I.

We have next to notice three important facts in electrostatics and some consequences flowing therefrom.
In the next place we must notice that electrification is a measurable magnitude and in electrostatics is estimated in terms of a unit called the electrostatic unit of electric quantity.
