Wire diameter: micrometers

Straw tube diameter: millimeters

Applied wire tension: grams

Wire length: cm

Wire density: g/cm3

Gas dielectric constant:

Applied load: G's

Applied potential: Volts

Preamp feedback capacitance : pF

Critical voltage = Volts __ (Applied potential must be below this value)

Max deflection (sagitta), due to loading alone = micrometers

Max deflection (sagitta), due to load + electrostatic force = micrometers

Nominal capacitance = pF __ (this is the capacitance assuming zero deflection)

New capacitance = pF __ (this is the new capacitance due to wire deflection)

Capacitance change = 10-15 F

Induced charge = 10-15 C

Preamp output voltage = mV
