Page 17 - A calorie is the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one kilogram of water from zero to one degree Centigrade. This is about equivalent to raising one pound four degrees Fahrenheit. The fuel value of different foods may be computed in a definite manner.
Page 37 - ... preserve this difference until it reaches the surface of the atmosphere, where it will spread itself out, and come to rest. We have now a column of air reaching from the surface of the earth to the surface of the atmosphere, of the same temperature as the surrounding air below, and Г1.2" greater above, making a mean of 35.6.
Page 82 - The Freezing Point of the Soil Solution It is well known that the freezing point of water is lowered by the presence of salts in solution. The basal law involved states that the depression of the freezing point is proportional to the concentration of the solution. If. therefore, a solution has a freezing point of —A C., it will, after 50 per cent. of the water has evaporated and the solution therefore become twice as concentrated, have a freezing point of — 2 A C. If the original V cc be...

Page 82 - The freezing point of a solution is lower than that of the pure solvent, and its depression is directly proportional to the number of solute particles in a given weight of solvent.
