Сторінка 581 - It is nearly filled with the solution, and connected to the rest of the circuit by being placed on a clean copper support to which a binding screw is attached.
Сторінка 581 - In determining by this method the constant of an instrument the current should be kept as nearly constant as possible, and the readings of the instrument observed at frequent intervals of time. These observations give a curve from which the reading corresponding to the mean current (time-average of the current) can be found. The current, as calculated by the voltameter, corresponds to this reading.
Сторінка 580 - In employing the silver voltameter to measure currents of about 1 •ampere the following arrangements should be adopted. The kathode on which the .silver is to be deposited should take the form of a platinum bowl not less than 10 centimetres in diameter, and from 4 to 5 centimetres in depth.
Сторінка 581 - The anode is then to be immersed in the solution so as to be well covered by it and supported in that position ; the connections to the rest of the circuit are then to be made.
Сторінка 14 - The rate of change of momentum is proportional to the impressed force, and takes place in the direction of the straight line in which the force acts.
Сторінка 574 - Contact is made with the mercury by means of a platinum wire about No. 22 gauge. This is protected from contact with the other materials of the cell by being sealed into a glass tube. The ends of the wire project from the ends of the tube ; one end forms the terminal, the other end and a portion of the glass tube dip into the mercury.
Сторінка 575 - Then insert the cork and zinc rod, passing the glass tube through the hole prepared for it. Push the cork gently down until its lower surface is nearly in contact with the liquid. The air will thus be nearly all expelled, and the cell should be left in this condition for at least 24 hours before sealing, which should be done as follows : — Melt some marine glue until it is fluid enough to pour by its own weight, and pour it into the test tube above the cork, using sufficient to cover completely...
Сторінка 182 - If three forces acting at a point are in equilibrium they can be represented in magnitude and direction by the three sides of a triangle taken in order.
Сторінка 580 - The anode should be a plate of pure silver some 30 square centimetres in area and 2 or 3 millimetres in thickness. This is supported horizontally in the liquid near the top of the solution by a platinum wire passed through holes in the plate at opposite corners. To prevent the disintegrated silver which is formed on the anode from falling on to the kathode, the anode should be wrapped round with pure filter paper, secured at the back with sealing-wax.
Сторінка 574 - Mix the washed mercurous sulphate with the zinc sulphate solution, adding sufficient crystals of zinc sulphate from the stock bottle to ensure saturation, and a small quantity of pure mercury. Shake these up well together to form a paste of the consistence of cream. Heat the paste, but not above a temperature of 30° C.
