Page 11 - Avogadro's principle or hypothesis, which states that equal volumes of all gases under the same conditions of temperature and pressure contain the same number of molecules, was the extension of Dalton's Atomic Theory necessary to put the theoretical interpretation of chemistry on a solid foundation.
Page 105 - Specific Gravity determinations were made at 60 F., compared with water at 60" F. From the Specific Gravities, the corresponding degrees Baume were calculated by the following formula: •> tr Baume = 145 Щ^— Sp.
Page 12 - Eutectic is that alloy of two or more metals which has the lowest melting point. The Hydrogen Equivalent of a substance is the number of replaceable hydrogen atoms in one molecule or the number of atoms of hydrogen with which one molecule could react.
Page 10 - Boyle's law. — At a constant temperature, the volume of a given quantity of any gas varies inversely as the pressure to which the gas is subjected.
Page 11 - ... are broken up into parts called ions, some of which are charged with positive electricity and are called cations, and an equivalent number of which are charged with negative electricity and are called anions. Electrolytic Solution Tension Theory (or the Helmholtz Double Layer Theory). — When a metal, or any other substance capable of existing in solution as ion is placed in water or any other dissociating solvent, a part of the metal or other substance passes into solution in the form of ions,...
Page 12 - A Catalytic Agent is a substance which by its mere presence alters the velocity of a reaction, and may be recovered unaltered in nature or amount at the end of the reaction.
Page 10 - Gay-Lussac's Law of Combining Volumes. — If gases interact and form a gaseous product, the volumes of the reacting gases and the volumes of the gaseous products are to each other in . very simple proportions, which can be expressed by small whole numbers.
