About this Item

First Edition. xi, 117 pp; 40 figs. Folio. Fair only. Wrappers present but very worn and detached. A well-used copy of a scarce, important monograph. "The great research achievement in Morley's life, that upon which his fame as a chemist so securely rests, was the determination of the densities of hydrogen and oxygen, the weights of each that combine with the other to form water, and the volumes of the two gases that combine to form water. The importance of his results lies in the fact that the weight of the oxygen atom is the basis or standard upon which the relative weights of all the other atoms are founded. It is, therefore, not overworking the truth to say that the work so painstakingly completed by Morley. assures the correctness of the fundamental ratio of the weight of an atom of oxygen to the weight of a hydrogen atom" (Williams, Edward Williams Morley, p. 204, with extensive discussion through p. 214). D. S. B. 9: 531. Smithsonian Contributions to Knowledge 980 (Vol. XXIX). Bookseller Inventory # 04920
