Starting potentials for hydrogen, nitrogen, helium, and argon of commercial purity at frequencies up to one million cycles per second were investigated using a discharge tube with spherical electrodes. Five gap distances were employed, ranging from 10 mm to 50 mm. The slope of the log pressure versus log distance curve was found to be independent of frequency and also of the gas for small gap distances.
