    THIS work forms a supplement to the author's “Elementary Text-book of Heat and Light,” and is an expansion of the chapters on calculations in that book. The mathematical sides of both these subjects only being dealt with, the fundamental formulæ in each case are clearly worked out and illustrated by many examples. At the heading of each chapter a short summary is given, for convenience of reference, of the many formulæ that may have been proved in previous chapters, but which are used in the one under consideration. This method causes a saving of time and patience, and facilitates the solving of the problems. Students who find special difficulties with regard to the questions on the quantitative relations of either of these two branches of physical science, cannot do better than study this work. By so doing, they will find themselves very much enlightened, and their difficulties considerably diminished.

    Heat and Light Problems.
