the absolute values being fixed by artaba = 51 Attic choenices (Herod.
The osmotic pressure (defined as the difference in the hydrostatic pressures of the solution and solvent when their vapour pressures are equal and they are consequently in equilibrium through a perfect semi-permeable membrane) may also depend on the absolute values of the hydrostatic pressures, as may the vapour pressure of the liquids.
If such variations of density exist, they may introduce some uncertainty in the absolute values of results obtained with the ice calorimeter, and may account for some of the discrepancies above enumerated.
The Absolute Value Of The Specific Heat Deduced Necessarily Depends On The Absolute Values Of The Electrical Standards Employed In The Investigation.
Bosscha From An Independent Reduction Of Regnault'S Experiments Is Probably Within The Limits Of Accuracy Between Ioo° And Zoo° C., So Far As The Mean Rate Of Variation Is Concerned, But The Absolute Values Require Reduction.
