Abstract

At the meeting of the Iowa Academy of Sciences in 1904 I read a paper descriptive of a new arrangement of a cohesion of water apparatus adapted to elementary laboratory work. The ease of manipulation, and close agreement of results in ordinary laboratory work led me to the thought of testing the accuracy of the standards of cohesion of water as ordinarily given in text-books and manuals. To my surprise, after a careful search through a number of the best text-books, manuals and works containing physical tables and constants, I found but one result tabulated, that of Gay-Lussac. There may be two reasons why the above author's data has been so universally accepted. First on account of the difficulties attending the use of the ordinary form of apparatus for finding the cohesion of a liquid. Second, the general feeling that the "Old Master Experimenters" left nothing undone or out of account in their experiments.
