ok i beleive this is the answer we are looking for.. we are studying electric which involves the interation of electrons... aka quantum electrodynamics.. in this pdf is goes into a 9 page description of what i beleive is needed to understand dielectric constants..

he has a book called

'Fundamental Constants derived from HAROLD ASPDEN, aka

'Fundamental Constants derived from* Two-Dimensional Harmonic Oscillations in an Electrically-Structured*

* *

Vacuum', Speculations in Science and Technology,

im looking for it.. printed 1986

i beleive this will give us a gain in perspective on what is happening at the barrier.. (water) as well as in the ciruit but we need to find this book.[/]
