Abstract

ATTENTION has frequently been directed to the plasticity of crystals of rocksalt when immersed in water. Some see the cause of the plasticity in the removal of surface layers with their cracks and defects. Others suppose that water penetrates the crystal lattice and acts as a lubricant. It is interesting to observe the behaviour of crystals in a state of recent formation from solution or melt. For this purpose I have made some experiments with sylvine (KC1).
