Abstract

IN NATURE, vol. xxiii. p. 44, Prof. Young has published some experiments proving that the thermo-electric power of a platinum-iron couple is to be observed in vacuo as well as in air; this fact is said to be contradictory to the results given in my papers. I presume that some error has caused this statement, as I never and nowhere asserted that the thermo-electric power is dependent on the surrounding gases. I have, on the contrary, stated (Phil. Mag., October 1880, p. 294) that no such influence has been hitherto observed. Thus the experiments of Prof. Young do in no way contradict my views.
