    • 1903 March 6, The Electrical Review[1], volume 52, number 1319, page 416:
      The R.M.S. value of the pressure was taken from the oscillogram by taking the square root of the average value of the squares of a number of equi-distant ordinates; the R.M.S. value of the current was obtained in the same way from the current oscillogram, and the two values multiplied together always gave a value agreeing to within 1 per cent. of that obtained by first multiplying the ordinates taken from the current and voltage oscillograms and then taking the mean.

      The process was controlled through oscillograms that showed the moments of breakage of the graphite rods.
    • 2015, Veniamin Nazarov, Nonlinear Acoustic Waves in Micro-inhomogeneous Solids[3], page 188:
      From these oscillograms, it is visible that the resonator oscillations are noticeably inharmonic and asymmetric ones.
