[Book Reviews]


    THIS is almost a book of questions selected from the Cambridge and Oxford Local, University of London, Science and Art Department, and other examination papers. It is divided into headings on laboratory calculations, where, after an example of a volumetric or gravimetric analysis, a number of exercises and questions follows, and gas analysis with corrections of gases for pressure, &c., and determinations of vapour densities, specific and atomic volume, specific heat, calorific power, calorific intensity, kinetic theory of gases, and diffusion. The explanations are in most cases short and to the point, but the immense number of examples and exercises given tend to make it a “getting-up” book for examinations rather than a book to work with in the laboratory.

    Arithmetical Chemistry.

    By C. J. Woodward, Birmingham and Midland Institute. (London: Simpkin, Marshall, and Co., 1884.)
