Page 53 - A given space contains millions of millions of molecules in rapid movement in all directions, each molecule having millions of encounters in a second. In such a case, the length of the mean free path of the molecules is exceedingly small compared with the dimensions of the containing vessel, and the properties which constitute the ordinary gaseous state of matter, which depend upon constant collisions, are observed. What, then, are these molecules ? Take a single lone molecule in space.

Green Phosphorescent Light of Molecular Impact. — At very high exhaustions the dark space becomes so large that it fills the tube. Careful scrutiny still shows the presence of the dark violet focus; and the part of the glass on which fall the rays diverging from this focus shows a sharply defined spot of greenish-yellow light.
