5 Modified Conservation of Charge Model Details of this model may be found in [13]. 23) We know from Ohm’s law that current flows down a voltage gradient in proportion to the resistance in the circuit. The bulk current is therefore expressed as I = E/R. 24) where Rc is the resistance of a conductor, A is the cross-sectional area, and k is the resistance coefficient. 2). 24) is valid only for metal conductors where there are plenty of electrons in the conductor. 24) should be modified in order to accurately describe the jet conduction [14–16].

25 and CD scales as r ~ z0. 32) where b is the power exponent. e. Q ∝ r0. 37) 53 Electrospun Nanofibres and Their Applications The unknown constant a varies among different polymer solutions, and can be determined by experiment. Theron and co-workers experimental data [30] show experimentally the scaling law between current and voltage for 10 wt% polycaprolactone (PCL) in methylene chloride:dimethylformamide (DMF; 75:25) in the form I ∝ E3. 7 for polyurethane (PU) solutions. Experimental Verification A variable high-voltage power supply was used for the electrospinning.
