    Abstract

    THIS is a very elaborate table from 400 lb. per sq. inch and 445° F. down to 0.18 lb. per sq. inch and 32° F. Usually we know a pressure in round numbers or a temperature in round numbers, and two separate tables are needed; Mr. Reeve's table contains both, and there is an ingenious arrangement for making interpolation easy. There are entries for every degree, and also for every pound per sq. inch. The usual error of such tables, using Regnault's heats with a value of Joule's equivalent which does not agree with Regnault's unit of heat, seems to be avoided by Mr. Reeve, and this steamtable seems to us likely to prove of very great value to steam engineers.

    The Steam-table. A Table of the Thermal and Physical Properties of Saturated Steam Vapour and of the Specific Heat of Water.
