Using an electron tube method, experiments have been performed to test whether the dielectric constant of HCl and NO gases changes when a strong magnetic field is applied. The magnetic field strength was 4800 gauss and the apparatus was capable of definitely detecting a change in dielectric constant of one part in 100,000. The gases were tested at pressures of from about 2 to 40 cm of mercury, at room temperature, and with the magnetic field both parallel and perpendicular to the electric field. No change was detected under any conditions.
