Abstract

WITH reference to Prof. Newcomb's suggested nomenclature for radiant energy, which appeared in NATURE, November 30, p. 100, it seems advisable to be rather cautious in adopting new words, or rather terminations to words already more or less in use, or at the present time the student beginning the study of physical science is fairly bewildered with the various forms of words used under the present system, or rather want of system, in nomenclature.
