Electrode erosion

  1. Jul 18, 2014 #1
    So I'm pretty sure this falls into both the realms of physics and electrochemistry. How would I calculate the rate of erosion of an electrode if it were sustaining an arc in a gas?

    I'm sorry you are not finding help at the moment. Is there any additional information you can share with us?

    Ahh sorry I missed this one. I got the answer I needed on the high energy physics forum. Turns out that basically the only way to get the data I want is to experiment myself since no one has it available for the system I'm modeling.
