Page 112 - The temperature may be increased by mixing hydrogen and oxygen in the proportion of two volumes of the former to one of the latter, and burning it from a safety jet.
Page 52 - ... water. The sample thus prepared is put into the bottle, and treated with soap solution, as already directed, and the result noted as permanent hardness. 3. Chlorine present as chlorides is important, as also being a product of the decomposition of sewage matters. It is estimated as follows : —70 cc of the water to be tested are placed in a beaker over a sheet of white paper, and brought under the 10 cc burette, charged with the standard solution of argentic nitrate. Two drops of the solution...

Page 55 - When the albuminoid ammonia amounts to •05, then the proportion of free ammonia becomes an element in the calculation ; and I should be inclined to regard with some suspicion a water yielding a considerable quantity of free ammonia, along with more than •05 parts of albuminoid ammonia per million.
Page 294 - They resemble each other in being odorous, oily, sparingly soluble in water, more or less soluble in alcohol and ether; colorless or yellowish, inflammable, and prone to become resinous on exposure to air. They are not simple chemical compounds, but mixtures...
Page 183 - CH,,H.,O, by the substitution of an atom of oxygen for two atoms of hydrogen, by oxidation of the radical.
Page 266 - To apply this method the sp. gr. of the urine is carefully determined, as well as that of the liq. sodae chlorinatae (Squibb's). One volume of the urine is then mixed with exactly seven volumes of the liq. sod.
Page 273 - Xanthine calculi are of very infrequent occurrence; they vary in size from that of a pea to that of a pigeon's egg...
Page 266 - ... and dividing the sum by eight. From the quotient so obtained the specific gravity of the mixture after decomposition is subtracted ; every degree of loss in specific gravity indicates 0.7791 gram of urea in 100 cc of urine. The specific gravity determinations must all be made at the same temperature, and that of the mixture only when the evolution of gas has ceased entirely.
