Page 151 - Queen's Most Excellent Majesty MAY IT PLEASE YOUR MAJESTY...
Page 3 - In this process its volume will steadily diminish as the pressure augments, and no sudden diminution of volume, without the application of external pressure, will occur at any stage of it. When the full pressure has been applied, let ihe temperature be allowed to fall till the carbonic acid has reached the ordinary temperature of the atmosphere.
Page 3 - ... the process would lead to the conjecture that liquefaction had actually taken place, although optical tests carefully applied failed at any time to discover the presence of a liquid in contact with a gas. But against this view it may be urged, with great force, that the fact of additional pressure being always required for a further diminution of volume, is opposed to the known laws which hold in the change of bodies from the gaseous to the liquid state. Besides, the higher the temperature at...
Page 3 - We are now prepared for the consideration of the following important question. What is the condition of carbonic acid when it passes, at temperatures above 31°, from the gaseous state down to the volume of the liquid, without giving evidence at any part of the process of liquefaction having occurred ? Does it continue in the gaseous state, or does it liquefy, or have we to deal with a new condition of matter...
Page 3 - Carbonic acid at 35°.5, and under 108 atmospheres of pressure, stands nearly midway between the gas and the liquid; and we have no valid grounds for assigning it to the one form of matter any more than to the other.

Page 2 - At temperatures above 88° no apparent liquefaction, or separation into two distinct forms of matter, could be effected, even when a pressure of 300 or 400 atmospheres was applied. Nitrous oxide gave analogous results.
