Page 434 - ... rendered existent without action or without its equivalent action. The conservation of power is now a thought deeply impressed upon the minds of philosophic men ; and I think that, as a body, they admit that the creation or annihilation of force is equally impossible with the creation or annihilation of matter. But if we conceive the sun existing alone in space, exerting no force of gravitation exterior to it; and then conceive another sphere in space having like conditions, and that the two...
Page 35 - ... chlorous radical, while the whole remaining atoms together are constituted into a positive or basylous radical, which last will contain an unbalanced equivalent of hydrogen, giving the molecule basicity, as in the great proportion of organic radicals. Now, it is this voluminous basylous radical which travels in the electrical decomposition of pure water, and resolves itself into hydrogen gas and water at the negative pole, causing the accumulation of water observed there, while the oxygen alone...
