    How was your request?

Scholarly Paper by Dr. Gregorio Y. Zara

Requested from NAST by M. Bantayan at 09:02 AM on Mar 30, 2022.
Purpose: Research
Date of Coverage: 01/01/1926 - 10/15/1978
Tracking no: #NAST -874844162782

Bantayan 09:02 AM, Mar 30, 2022


I would like to request a copy of the paper where Dr. Gregorio Y. Zara described the law of Kinetic Electrical Resistance also known as the Zara Effect.

Everywhere I look in the internet I am unable to find anything that shows his research methodology and results. All I see are the same copy-pasted articles that mentions it only in passing without any actual discussion of the Physics principle he discovered and how it works or any of it's applications. 

If you can provide me original paper in pdf format I would appreciate it very much.

Thank you very much!
