I t is to this apparently insignificant transaction, which always has been and always will be so familiar, and to others of a like nature,.that I desire to call the attention of those who are interested. in natural phenomena; hoping to share with them some of the delight that I have myself felt, in contemplating the exquisite forms that the camera has revealed, and in watching the progress of a multitude of events, compressed indeed within the limits of a few hundredths of a second, but none the less orderly and i

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from A Study of Splashes This publication is an attempt to present in a form acceptable to the general reader the outcome of an inquiry conducted by the aid of instantaneous photography, which was begun about fourteen years ago. The author, in 1894, had occasion to lecture at the Royal Institution on the Splash of a Drop, of which he had already made a somewhat prolonged study. That lecture, which was subsequently reprinted in the Romance of Science series by the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, dealt largely with the splash of a drop falling on a solid plate, with which the present volume is not concerned. At the close of the lecture were exhibited for the first time a few photographs of some of the phenomena now dealt with, which the author had just succeeded in taking with the help of his friend Mr. R. S. Cole. The success of the photographs and the additional information they afforded led to a long photographic investigation, which formed the subject of two papers in the Transactions of the Royal Society. Except for two magazine articles, the results of this work have not been presented to the general public.
