The theory of the electrolytic tank analog as a device for the solution of potential problems is reviewed, and some of the more important applications are discussed. The mechanical requirements of an electrolytic tank design are stated. A description of the Harvard tank is given, indicating how these problems were met. The figure of mechanical unce...

... For the experimental part of the exercise, we decided to use the venerable electrolytic tank 2 to simulate electric field measurements in a dielectric. Prior to readily available computational tools, this approach was used to find equipotential surfaces for complex electrode shapes and it has been well characterized over the years 3 . ...
