Page 377 - As a unit of resistance, the international ohm, which is based upon the ohm equal to 10" units of resistance of the CGS system of electromagnetic units, and is represented by the resistance offered to an unvarying electric current by a column of mercury at the temperature of melting ice, 14.4521 grams in mass, of a constant cross-sectional area and of the length of 106.3 centimetres.
Page 345 - 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 485 - Section 8. It shall be unlawful for the owner, lessee, or operator of any existing plant, or of any plant about to be constructed, for the production of power or heat, to proceed with the construction, reconstruction, or alteration of such plant until plans and specifications for such work shall have been submitted to the smoke inspector, approved by him, and a permit for the prosecution of such work Issued.

Page 484 - SEC. 2. The smoke inspector shall be appointed by the mayor by and with the advice of the city council and shall perform the duties of his office until removed from office or until his successor is appointed.
Page 348 - In the interest of clear thinking, an attempt has been made in this text to distinguish between the four types of relations dealt with, namely : 1. Relations which are matters of definition. 2. Relations which have been determined purely by observation and experiment. 3. Relations which have been deduced from fundamental experimental relations for the values of newly defined quantities. 4. Relations which are generalizations embodying and based upon general experience or upon extended experimental...

Page 345 - The International Ohm is the resistance offered to an unvarying electric current by a column of mercury at the temperature of melting ice, 14.4521 grams in mass, of a constant cross-sectional area and of a length of 106.300 centimeters.
Page 467 - House heaters must have provision for overdraft through fire door or around top of fire pot. "(13) The fuel pot must be kept full with fire surface at level of fire door; let ashes accumulate on (not under) the grate In mild weather. Grates must not be shaken too long and violently, and clinkers must be removed with as little disturbance of the fire as possible. Never shake or disturb a very low fire until you have added, and ignited a little fresh fuel. "(14) Anticipate the heating demand by firing...
