Two theoretical approaches to evaporation from saturated surfaces are outlined, the first being on an aerodynamic basis in which evaporation is regarded as due to turbulent transport of vapour by a process of eddy diffusion, and the second being on an...

Non-relativistic quantum mechanics is formulated here in a different way. It is, however, mathematically equivalent to the familiar formulation. In quantum mechanics the probability of an event which can happen in several different ways is the absolute...

Our previous results have been criticized by T. L. Hill on the ground that we considered energies of adsorption ranging from − ∞ to ∞. We have accordingly revised our former theory. It appears that, if we assume localized adsorption without interaction,...

In the following paper, a brief summary is first of all given of the results and interpretation of tests already made known in former publications of the Laboratory for Hydraulic Research and Soil Mechanics at the Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich....

This chapter discusses that the application of methods of statistical analysis and statistical mechanics to the problem of turbulent fluid motion has attracted much attention in recent years. It investigated a complicated system of nonlinear equations,...

A theory of the intrinsic viscosities and translational diffusion constants of flexible macromolecules is developed on the basis of the random coil model with hindered internal rotation. Proper account is taken of the hydrodynamicinteraction of the monomer...

A radial distribution function of polymer segments in a solution of a high polymer may be defined as a quantity proportional to the density of segments at a given distance from some given segment. An approximate expression is derived for this function...

Analysis of adsorption on a uniform surface using the quasi‐chemical theory of interaction shows that the hypotheses of the BET theory lead to substantially no adsorption beyond the first layer if E 2 = EL , and stepwise isotherms if E 1>E 2>E 3>···>EL...

The physical limitations of omni‐directional antennas are considered. With the use of the spherical wave functions to describe the field, the directivity gain G and the Q of an unspecified antenna are calculated under idealized conditions. To obtain...

A photoelectric apparatus for the measurement of the angular dependence of light scattering from solutions is described in detail and its performance is discussed. Methods of calculation for the determination of the average extension of the scattering...

Fine structure has been observed in the nuclear paramagnetic resonance absorption line for protons in crystalline hydrates. The magnetic field of 6820 gauss was provided by a permanent magnet, the inherent stability of which facilitated detailed study...

As a basis for understanding emulsionpolymerization, the kinetics of free radical reactions in isolated loci is discussed subject to the condition that the free radicals are supplied to the loci from an external source. Three cases of interest are considered:...

Several conceivable methods for the formation of optical images by x-rays are considered, and a method employing concave mirrors is adopted as the most promising. A concave spherical mirror receiving radiation at grazing incidence (a necessary arrangement...

Intrinsic viscosity,diffusion and sedimentation rate of polymers in solution is calculated by a generalization of Einstein's theory for impermeable spheres. For the coiled polymer molecule a sphere is substituted which hinders the liquid flow through...

This paper concerns the effects of interrupting speech waves—turning them on and off intermittently or masking them with intermittent noise—upon their intelligibility. The effects were studied with various rates of interruption and with the speech...

Suppose that a sample of N individuals is classified according to two arguments, A and B, in an m by m contingency table and suppose that the categories of classification A are associated in some unique way with the categories of classification B. For...

The equations of motion, boundary conditions and stress-strain relations for a highly elastic material can be expressed in terms of the stored-energy function. This has been done in part I of this series (Rivlin 1948a), for both the cases of compressible...

The fundamental notion of statistical mean values in fluid mechanics was first introduced by Reynolds. His most important contributions were the definition of the mean values for the so-called Reynolds' stresses and the recognition of the analogy between...

Point-to-point communication, with the carrier power generated at the receiving end and the transmitter replaced by a modulated reflector, represents a transmission system which possesses new and different characteristics. Radio, light, or sound waves...

The dielectric constants and loss angles of a series of concentrated aqueous ionic solutions have been measured at wave‐lengths of 10 cm, 3 cm, and 1.25 cm. From these results the values of the static dielectric constant and relaxation time for these...

Explosives detonated in contact with thick steel plates produce much deeper holes in the steel when there is a cavity in the explosive in contact with the plate. While this phenomenon has been known for more than 150 years, the enormous increase in penetrating...

At the end of 1947, a series of articles dealing with the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations was published in this Review. It is now desirable to bring this information up to date in the light of more recent developments in order...
