The "Corrected Log. Rate of Pendulum upon Clock", or Log Rate
supposing that the temperature of the Pendulum is 50<sup>o</sup>, and that
in vibrations in vacuum, in an indefinitely small arc, is
found by adding together the logarithm of n-2/2, the correction
for arc, the correction for thermometer, and the correction for
barometer, all taken from the tables above.
