Referee's report by Horace Darwin, on a paper 'The elasmometer, a new interferential form of elasticity apparatus' by Alfred Edward Howard Tutton

Reference number: RR/16/122

Date: June 1903

Description

Sectional Committee: Physics and Chemistry

Recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions. The paper is only a description of the instrument and Darwin is a little doubtful whether it is advisable to publish the description without giving any results obtained. All the figures should be reproduced. Figure three should include a scale. Thinks more drawings are needed for clarification; does not understand the first five lines of page 16. Gives remarks on three points of detail with references to the page and line of the original paper.

[Published in the Philosophical Transactions A, 1904].

Endorsed on verso as received 4 June 1903.
