Description

Sectional Committee: Physics and Chemistry

Recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions. The paper contains a large mass of valuable experimental results. The theoretical considerations are necessarily very speculative; but a working hypothesis of some kind is necessary, and the one adopted is worth examination and may contain the germ of a complete theory.

[Published in Philosophical Transactions A, 1903].

Endorsed on verso as received 2 April 1903.
