Page 67 - We have thus learned that (1) water can be decomposed into hydrogen and oxygen by means of an electric current; (2) the gases are obtained in the proportion of eight parts by weight of oxygen to one part by weight of hydrogen, or one volume of oxygen to two volumes of hydrogen; (3) when hydrogen is burned water is formed...

Page iii - ... make his own inferences. The author has written under the belief that "a rational course in chemistry, whether for younger or older pupils, is something more than a lot of statements of facts of more or less importance ; a lot of experiments of more or less beauty; or a lot of rules devised for the purpose of enabling the pupil to tell what things are made of. If the course does not to some extent help the pupil to think as well as to see it does not deserve to be called rational.

Page 37 - ... iron and sulphur bear to each other the relation of 1 : 2 : 3 ; and the amounts of iron are to each other as 1:1:2. Finally, in the compounds of oxygen and nitrogen, the amounts of oxygen are to each other as 1:2:3:4:5; the amount of nitrogen remaining constant. These cases illustrate what is known as the law of multiple proportions, which may be stated thus : If two elements, A and B, form several compounds with each other, and we consider any fixed amount of A, then the different amounts of...
Page 68 - This expresses the fact that water is composed of "2 parts by weight of hydrogen and 16 parts by weight of oxygen, or 1 part of the former to 8 of the latter.
