Description

Sectional committee: Physics and chemistry

Recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions, in full. The title should be modified to omit 'mechanical' and throughout the paper all reference to 'mechanical' should be omitted. This research has been directed solely to the determination of the equivalent in terms of electric units and has not touched the determination of the equivalent in mechanical units. Notes the measurement of specific heats over intervals of ten degrees centigrade is terribly difficult if not impossible', to anything like a ten thousandth part, and any results must be received with caution.

[Published in Philosophical Transactions A, 1902].

Endorsed on verso as received 27 July 1900.
