Page 230 - NATURAL HISTORY OF THE BRITISH ISLES. This Series of Works is Illustrated by many Hundred Engravings; every Species has been Drawn and Engraved under the immediate inspection of the Authors ; the best Artists have been employed, and no care or expense has been spared. A few Copies have been printed on Larger Paper.
Page 221 - A Manual of Inorganic Chemistry. Arranged to facilitate the Experimental Demonstration of the Facts and Principles of the Science.
Page 14 - English name) ; or when the names of two or more elements begin with the same letter, two letters are used as the symbol, one of which is always the first letter of the name of the element.
Page 9 - When an acid contains oxygen, its name is generally formed by adding the terminal ic either to the name of the element with which the oxygen is united, or to an abbreviation of that name ; thus sulphur forms, with oxygen, sulphuric acid; nitrogen, nitric acid ; and phosphorus, phosphoric acid. But it frequently happens that the same element forms two acids with oxygen ; and when this occurs, the acid containing the...
Page 34 - The actual weight of this cube of hydrogen, at the standard temperature and pressure mentioned, is 0-0896 gramme ; a figure which I earnestly beg you to inscribe, as with a sharp graving tool, upon your memory. There is probably no figure, in chemical science, more important than this one to be borne in mind, and to be kept ever in readiness for use in calculation at a moment's notice. For this litre-weight...

Page 12 - If we take a salt* to be the product of the mutual action of an acid and a metal or base upon each other, normal salts are obtained by exchanging the whole of the replaceable hydrogen of the acid for an equivalent amount of a metal, or of a positive compound radical, such at ammonium, NHt.
Page 9 - A more intelligible definition to ordinary readers is that which is adopted by Frankland, in which an acid is described "as a compound containing one or more atoms of hydrogen, which become displaced by a metal, when the latter is presented to the compound in the form of a hydrate.
Page 21 - These remarkable facts can be explained by a very simple and obvious assumption, viz. that one or more pairs of bonds belonging to one atom of the same element can unite and, having saturated each other, become, as it were, latent.
Page 35 - C. andOm76 pressure, may be called respectively 35 '5 criths, 16 criths, and 14 criths. " So, again, with reference to the compound gases ; the relative volume-weight of each is equal to half the weight of its product-volume. Hydrochloric acid (HC1), for example, consists of 1 vol.
