The phenomenon of branching at specific angles in streamer breakdown studies is found to be more universal than was ever thought. The angles measured in the breakdown of gases show that the coefficient of field distortion, K, lies in the range from 1 to less than 0.1. The values of K, so obtained agree well with those envisaged in the criterion of the streamer mechanism. It is hoped that branching angles observed in various types of breakdown may, possibly, be explained similarly.
