About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for A Course of Six Lectures on the Chemical History of a Candle: to which is added a lecture on platinum.

Description:

The lecture described the different zones of combustion in the candle flame, and the presence of carbon particles in the luminescent zone. Demonstrations included the production and examination of the properties of, Hydrogen, Oxygen, Nitrogen and Carbon dioxide gases. An electrolysis cell is demonstrated, first in the electroplating of Platinum conductors by dissolved copper, then the production of Hydrogen and Oxygen gases, and their recombination to form water. The properties of water itself are studied, including its expansion while freezing (iron vessels are burst by this expansion), and the relative volume of steam produced when water is vaporized. Techniques for weighing gases on a balance are demonstrated. Atmospheric pressure is described and its effects demonstrated. Bookseller Inventory #
