The purpose of this work was to find the distribution law of colloidal particles for sedimentation equilibrium in large cells, in which uniform concentrations had been observed by Burton, Porter and Laird. We took great care to eliminate effects which might prevent an equilibrium state. Gold particles prepared by the Zsigmondy nuclear method were allowed to settle several days in a quartz cell in a carefully controlled thermostat bath. The steady state was determined by taking visual ultra-microscopic counts on different days. The La Place-Perrin exponential law of distribution was found to hold as demanded by the kinetic theory.
