Page 23 - Since ice must be manufactured and stored for refrigeration and storage purposes for the public market, there would seem to be no valid reason why it should not be wholesaled under regulations that would safeguard the public interest.
Page 2 - E =RI, where R is a quantity called the resistance of the wire. The point of Ohm's Law is that the quantity R defined by this equation is independent of the strength of the current flowing through the wire, and depends only upon the shape and size of the wire, the material of which it is made, and upon its temperature and state of strain. The most searching investigations have been made as to the truth of this law when currents pass through metals or electrolytes; these have all failed to discover...
Page 24 - ... as a reserve. To the remaining five-sixths of the silver solution add ammonia drop by drop, until the dark-brown precipitate is just dissolved and the solution becomes clear.
