Electrostatic Measurements

Most static electric measurements involve the determination of fundamental electric quantities, like voltage difference, current, resistance, and capacitance. In practice, however, electrostatic measurements differ from traditional electrical measurements, first of all because the voltage differences are caused by static charge distributions, which are unable to deliverer a current without ruining the voltages.
