We obtain an expression for the electron Debye radius and derive formulas for calculating the ion current onto a probe for an arbitrary isotropic electron distribution function. An algorithm is given for extracting the second derivative of the electron current when measuring the electron distribution function by the method of Dreyvesteyn.
