Page 45 - Since equal volumes of gases under the same conditions contain the same number of molecules, the ratio of the weights of these volumes gives us at once the ratio of the molecular weights.
Page 281 - Two elements may combine in more than one proportion by weight, but if so, the weights of one element which combine with a fixed weight of the other element, are always in a simple ratio to each other. The Periodic Law. — The physical and chemical properties of the elements are functions of their atomic weights, and most of these properties are periodic functions of the atomic weights. FUNDAMENTAL CHEMICAL THEORIES A...
Page 101 - ... kept in mind. First, it is necessary to consider the extent to which investment plans are formulated in advance. Second, consideration ought to be given to the comparison of anticipated investment expenditures with the actual investment statistics once they are available for the period in question. So far as the first point is concerned, it should be noted that it is not always easy to obtain reliable data on the future plans of business firms. Some firms do not decide upon their complete investment...
Page 80 - This equation may be written in a slightly different way, since in gases the number of molecules per unit volume is proportional to the pressure ( 31).
Page 183 - ... called substitution compounds. Chlorine is largely consumed in the arts. Thus it is used in the manufacture of potassic chlorate, in the conversion of the yellow to the red prussiate of potash, in the preparation of chloride of sulphur for vulcanizing, and above all as a bleaching and disinfecting agent. This last property is exercised by chlorine by virtue of its power of decomposing water by combining with the hydrogen and liberating oxygen, which latter substance is the true agent in the...
Page 293 - When heated in the air it burns with an intense white light to the oxide; at ordinary temperatures it is not so readily oxidized as sodium and potassium.
Page 61 - F,o. 19. always more nearly horizontal than the former, as has been proved both experimentally and theoretically. The freezing-point of a liquid is that temperature at which the solid and liquid states can exist side by side indefinitely. This condition requires that the solid and the liquid substance have the same vapor tension. If, for instance, the vapor tension of the solid were greater than that of the liquid, we should have, at a constant temperature, the vapor given off from the solid condensing...
Page 409 - Poppy oil has been known for a long time, but it was not until the lyth century that it came, in Holland, into general use for painting.
