Not illustrated. 1892 edition. Excerpt: ...due to cooling under pressure. Paraffin (second sample). Baeus CONTRACTION DUE TO COOLING UNDER PRESSURE. 59 Table 47.--Contraction due to cooling under pressure. Paraffin (third sample). Table 48.--Contraction due to cooling under pressure. Paraffin (fourth sample, closed capillary tube). Barus. COOLING UNDER PRESSURE HYPERBOLIC CONSTANTS. 61 Table 50.--Contraction due to cooling undsr pressure monochlor acetic acid. These data very fully corroborate each other and the statements of the above 23, 30, 31, 35 and 41. Contraction under pressure when referred to unit of volume at the initial (high) temperature, decreases at a rapid rate with pressure. In case of paraffin, were the observed conditions to hold indefinitely, contraction would altogether eease at a pressure less than 2,000 atmospheres. This follows in a less pronounced degree for naphthalene and chloracetic acid. The lines of cooling for the same low pressure are parallel. COMPRESSIBILITY INCREASING INVERSELY AS THE SECOND POWER OF THE PRESSURE BINOMINAL. 43. Properties of the hyperbolic equation.--The expression v/V=ln (1 + ap) /a, as utilized in 39, furnishes a family of curves which must in their ultimate contours necessarily fall below the corresponding isothermals of the substance under discussion. It is the object of the present section to investigate a similar family, the ultimate contours of which must he above the actual isothermals. This may be done by assuming e d (1) dp (1 + vpf whence by integration W=rfb 2 In this case whenjp = ao, (v/V)p=!X, = jd/v, or, as will be seen in the following tables, (v/ V) = 2/9. In the actual case, v/ 7, though it can not be greater than 1, will in all probability eventually exceed 2/9. The method of discussion to more
