Excerpt from Practical Exercises in Heat: Being a Laboratory Course for Schools of Science and Colleges
The importance of a sound knowledge of the scientific principles upon which the numerous applications of the energy of heat are based is now fully recognised, with the result that nearly all schools of science and technology provide laboratory courses in heat, intended for students of physics, chemistry and engineering.
The practical exercises given in this book are the result of many years' experience of the actual work of arranging and organising suitable laboratory work in heat for students of different grades, who for one purpose or another require an experimental knowledge of the subject.
The elementary experiments are intended for first year students, whether of an organised school of science or of a technical institute. The more difficult exercises may be worked by second and third year students taking special courses of study in electrical and mechanical engineering, chemistry, etc. Elementary students may with advantage work in pairs, and in later exercises, where simultaneous observations must be made, the same plan should be followed with advanced students.
The apparatus required has been designed to combine accuracy with durability, and so to avoid the annoyance caused by the constant attention and repair required by inferior instruments.
