Page 743 - ... the art of directing the great sources of power in nature for the use and convenience of man, as the means of production and of traffic in states.
Page 125 - Ampere, which is one-tenth of the unit of current of the CGS system of electromagnetic units and which is represented sufficiently well for practical use by the unvarying current which, when passed through a solution of nitrate of silver in water, in accordance with a certain specification, deposits silver at the rate of 0.001118 of a gramme per second.
Page 126 - As a unit of quantity, the international coulomb, which is the quantity of electricity transferred by a current of one international ampere in one second. As a unit of capacity, the international farad, which is the capacity of a condenser charged to a potential of one international volt by one international coulomb of electricity.
Page 126 - As a unit of work, the joule, which is equal to 107 units of work in the CGS system, and which is represented sufficiently well for practical use by the energy expended in one second by an international ampere in an international ohm. As a unit of power, the watt, which is equal to 10...
Page xxix - To give a stronger impulse and a more systematic direction to scientific inquiry, — to promote the intercourse of those -who cultivate Science in different parts of the British Empire, with one another and with foreign philosophers, — to obtain a more general attention to the objects of Science, and a removal of any disadvantages of a public kind which impede its progress.
Page 145 - ... 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.
Page 126 - ... the electromotive force that, steadily applied to a conductor whose resistance is one international ohm, will produce a current of one international ampere, and which is represented sufficiently well for practical use by \\\% of the electromotive force between the poles or electrodes of the voltaic cell known as Clark's cell, at a temperature of 15 C., and prepared in the manner described in the accompanying specification...
Page 146 - ... to neutralise any free acid. The crystals should be dissolved with the aid of gentle heat, but the temperature to which the solution is raised should not exceed 30 C. Mercurous sulphate treated as described in 3 should be added in the proportion of about 12 per cent, by weight of the zinc sulphate crystals to neutralise any free zinc oxide remaining, and the solution filtered, while still warm, into a stock bottle.
Page xxxii - It has therefore become necessary, in order to give an opportunity to the Committees of doing justice to the several Communications, that each author should prepare an Abstract of his Memoir of a length suitable for insertion in the published Transactions of the Association, and that he should send it, together with the original Memoir, by book-post, on or before addressed to the General Secretaries, at the office of the Association.
Page 7 - It will be more suitable to my capacity if I devote the few observations I have to make to a survey not of our science but of our ignorance.
