1891 Excerpt: ...two clamps, as in T 237. The wire should be kept
straight, as in Fig. 249, page 486. REVIEW. Chapter I. (General
Definitions), first 11 sections. Chapter V. (Hydrostatics),
omitting 67, 68, 71, 72, and 73. Chapter VI. (Heat), omitting 89 on
cooling. Chapter VII. (Sound and Light), 92, 93, 94, 96, 98, 99,
100, 103, and 104. Chapter VIII. (Force and Work), as far as 118.
Chapter IX. (Electricity and Magnetism), 123, 124,126, 127, 128,
130. Chapter X. (Electromotive Force, and Resistance), 138, 140,
143, 144, 146. The Second List of Experiments is intended to cover
the ground of 40 Exercises in Elementary Physics required for
admission to Harvard College, viz. Xos. 1-4; 6-14; 17-32; 34-38;
40-42; and 44-45. In most cases the correspondence is exact; other
cases are designated in the table below by an asterisk (). The
course of reading recommended covers the principles of at least
three additional exercises, and three extra experiments are
suggested. The ground covered for examination is therefore about
equivalent to the 46 exercises of the Harvard elementary pamphlet.
The laboratory work is divided into 50 experiments (assuming that
10 of the 60 are omitted as indicated). As these experiments all
involve measurements, they are on the average fully as difficult as
those recommended by the Harvard pamphlet. This course would be
offered only by students who are ambitious to learn more about
physical measurement than is thought desirable to require of all
candidates for admission to Harvard College in elementary physics.
The exact correspondence of the second list of experiments with the
" Descriptive List of Elementary Physical Experiments " published
by Harvard University, October, 1889, ...
