Thus there would be no need for the systems of CGSE units, CGSM units and the Gaussian units. Replacing the dimensions and introducing new electromagnetic constants is a purely technical problem, although it is hardly practicable today.
where the plasma frequency (in Gaussian units) is given by
He provides information on physical constraints, useful vector identities, and Gaussian units in appendices, provides a concise list of further reading, and supplies summaries at the beginning and exercises at the end of every chapter.
Thus [r.sub.*][m.sub.*]/[e.sup.2.sub.*] in (9) had better equal [10.sup.-7] in mks units, and it does ([e.sub.*] in Gaussian units is obtained from (3) and G, or from (7) and h; and then changed into mks units for the calculation).
Shifting (8) and (9) out of mks units back into Gaussian units leads to 2
