Сторінка 63 - ... carefully removing any loose pieces of the zinc. Just before making up the cell dip the zinc into dilute sulphuric acid, wash with distilled water, and dry with a clean cloth or filter paper.
Сторінка 64 - 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...
Сторінка 410 - ... discharge or by an induction discharge. The mere presence of an electrified body near the jet has no influence whatever. In order that it may have an effect, the electrified body must terminate in a point placed near the jet, and the potential must be great enough to cause a discharge of the electricity to the jet. When this takes place the jet at once becomes dense and remains in that condition while the discharge continues. The electrified body may, however, electrify the jet by induction....
Сторінка 383 - ... of the plate. If the examinee were allowed to depart from the narrow limits established by the trial, it would include every shade of green ; the result of which would be that he would prefer to select all the vivid shades, and thus avoid the dangerous ground where his defect would certainly be discovered. This is why it is necessary to oblige him to keep within certain limits, confining him to pure...
Сторінка 64 - 5 centimetre thick to fit the tube ; at one side of the cork bore a hole through which the zinc rod can pass tightly ; at the other side bore another hole for the glass tube which covers the platinum wire ; at the edge of the cork cut a nick through which the air can pass when the cork is pushed into the tube.
Сторінка 375 - The person examined is requested to select other skeins from the pile most nearly resembling it in colour, and to place them by the side of the sample. At the outset, it is necessary that he should thoroughly understand that he is required to search the heap for the...
Сторінка 496 - ... material changes in its spectrum. It is scarcely conceivable that we can have to do with the conversion of gravitational energy into light and heat. On the theory we have ventured to suggest, the rapid calming down, after some swayings to and fro of the tidal disturbances, and the closing in again of the outer and cooler gases, together with the want of transparency which might come in under such circumstances, as the bodies separated ; might account reasonably for the very rapid and at first...
Сторінка 64 - It is convenient to arrange the mounting so that the cell may be immersed in a water-bath up to the level of, say, the upper surface of the cork. Its temperature can then be determined more accurately than is possible when the cell is in air. In using the cell sudden variations of temperature should as far as possible be avoided.
Сторінка 54 - The currents in the fixed coils around the magnets are not the only magnetising forces applied in a dynamo machine ; the currents in the moving coils of the armature have also their effect on the resultant field. There are in general two independent variables in a dynamo machine, the current around the magnets and the current in the armature, and the relation of EMF to currents is fully represented by a surface.
Сторінка 381 - ... but it is required to examine people of various degrees of culture, all of whom, besides, have a personal interest in the issue of the examination. Different people act very differently during the examination for many reasons. Some submit to it without the least suspicion of their defect ; others are convinced that they possess a normal sense. A few only have a consciousness, or at least some suspicion, of their defect. These last can often be recognized before the least examination by keeping...
