Not illustrated. 1848 Excerpt: ...when wrapped up in cotton.) (Mitchell.)--The liquid acid.already indeed contains a large portion of the neat of fluidity required for its conversion into vapour, and moreover contains a larger quantity of sensible heat, inasmuch as it takes the temperature of the vessels in which it is enclosed, --the solid acid on the contrary must take all its heat from the surrounding bodies. All explosions, detonations, and fulminations arise from a sudden formation of gas brought about by great affinity for heat and a high temperature, the resistance of the surrounding envelope being completely overpowered. Since nitrogen, when it separates from its combinations and assumes the gaseous state, produces the most fearful explosions, even when no great rise of temperature takes place (e. g., in the decomposition of chloride of nitrogen) a peculiarly great affinity for heat must be ascribed to it. If on the other hand the tension of the nascent vapour is less than the pressure of the external air, so that the vaporization can only proceed by means of the adhesion of the existing gas to that which is in course of formation, then--since the portion of air which is in contact with the vaporizing body can only be charged with the nascent vapour in the same proportion as a vacuum--the rate of evaporation will be determined by the rapidity with which the particles of the existing gas are renewed on the surface of the vaporizing body, and will therefore be very slow in a state of rest, but quicker in proportion to the facility with which the existing gas is renewed. b. Situat ion in which the formation of Gas or Vapour takes place. The vaporization of a body takes place in that particular part in which the conditions of vaporization are completely fulfilled. If a body is very volat..
