In 1831, from a study of the specific heats of compounds, he formulated "Neumann's law," which expressed in modern language runs: "The molecular heat of a compound is equal to the sum of the atomic heats of its constituents."
Its ratio of specific heats has very nearly the ideal value 1 666, appropriate to a monatomic molecule.
Fire heats the water in a boiler from the top of which a " flow " pipe communicates with the rooms to be warmed (fig.
Phys., 1895, 6, p. 296) heats three parts of the oxide with one part of magnesium powder.
The winds are liable to little variation; they blow from the west, often with great violence, for nine months in the year, and at other times from the north; and they moderate the summer heats, which are chiefly felt during the months of July and August, when the hot winds blow from the coast of Anatolia.
