The value of the dielectric constant, εr
What is the source of the dielectric constant value, εr? I think the cited value (37.4) is outdated. A newer reference books and scientific papers give some different values. According to , εr=40.25 at T=25 C. Several articles [2-6] provides values of permittivity at different temperatures in the range 20-30 C, and all of these are agree with the 40.25 (maximum deviation is about 0.5). So I propose to update the value of εr according to the modern reference book . May I do the corresponding change? Hypercubist (talk) 09:34, 9 August 2010 (UTC)
