Experimental Methods in Gas Reactions


THIS treatise will become a standard work and a necessary reference book for all physicists and chemists engaged in conducting experimental researches with gases. Its usefulness is enhanced by the fact that the authors have had actual practical experience with many of the devices and apparatus described, and are therefore well qualified to point out the limitations, defects and advantages of alternative methods of procedure. The arduous labour of collecting from scattered sources information hitherto imperfectly catalogued has resulted in a valuable contribution to science in a very practical form. The references are very numerous, the diagrams clear, and the printing, especially of the formulæ, admirable. The mathematical relations quoted in the text have in many cases been deduced from first principles, and theoretical questions of sufficient fundamental importance have not been left unexplained.
