Page 49 - The instrument should have a stable support, which may be a stone pier, a wooden post, or a good tripod. If a portable tripod is used its legs should be set firmly in the ground. The instrument should be protected from the direct rays of the sun by means of an umbrella or a piece of canvas like a tent fly. It should also be shielded from winds that might jar or twist either it or its support.

Page 52 - Friedel b indicates a means for determining the true weight of water lost by minerals behaving like the zeolites, even without collecting the water lost, namely, by driving out of the dehydrated and weighed mineral, under proper precautions, any air it may have absorbed in the process of drying and cooling, and collecting and measuring this air and thus finding its weight, which, added to the apparent loss, gives the true contents in water.
Page 165 - OF SOLUBLE SILICA. Very often in treatment by acids silica is separated in gelatinous or granular form mixed with the unattacked minerals, and it becomes necessary to remove or estimate this silica, or else to discriminate between soluble and insoluble silica already existing together. Usually a boiling solution of sodium carbonate has been employed for this purpose, though the caustic alkalies have found advocates.
Page 109 - ... on ignition. If an excess of acetic acid has been used, this is cautiously removed by ammonia. Then a drop or two of solution of ammonium oxalate is added, and the small beaker is set aside for twelve hours if necessary. Almost invariably a small precipitate soon shows itself, which, if fine grained and nonadherent to the glass, may be regarded as pure calcium oxalate; otherwise it contains, or may largely consist of, magnesium oxalate. It is in that case to be collected, ignited, redissolved,...
Page 82 - Two precipitations by ammonia at boiling heat are usually quite sufficient to separate iron, aluminum, phosphorus, vanadium, chromium, titanium, and zirconium, if all these are present, from nickel, manganese, the alkaline-earth metals, and magnesium, provided ammoniacal salts are present in sufficient quan.tity. This last point is of special importance as regards magnesium, and failure to observe it is doubtless the reason why many old analyses, and sometimes modern ones, show utterly improbable...
