In lots of parts of geophysics, geology, geochemistry, and mining, there's enormous curiosity in laboratory info at the actual homes of assorted varieties of rocks. till lately, how ever, merely the mechanical houses of rocks were studied intimately. the previous few years have obvious a comparatively great amount of analysis of homes of rock samples and a necessity to arrange the result of those reports has arisen. In"Electrical houses of Rocks,"* E. 1. Parkhomenko reviewed and cataloged reports of electric resistivity and the dielectric consistent in rocks. within the current paintings she covers different electric phenomena that are saw to happen in rocks and minerals and experiences the re sults of her personal researches, in addition to that of others, formerly released. Theoretical and experimental info at the piezoelectric prop erties of minerals and rocks got considering the fact that 1953 through E. 1. Parkho menko and myself because the results of laboratory investigations on quartz-bearing rocks (granite, gneiss, quartz veins, and so on. ) include the majority of the monograph (Chapters1-4). Itwas now not formerly con sidered polycrystalline mass equivalent to a rock may perhaps express piezoelectric homes - it was once intended attribute in simple terms of unmarried crystals.
