Page 140 - Antitiiuric (west-south-west to east-north-east) to the Persian (northwest to south-east) direction, and it also marks the point of intersection of this fracture with a great north-east to north-west fracture (Caucasian direction), which delimits on the south Lake Van and the faulted depression of the Plain of Mush, abruptly cutting off the Tauric horst of pre-Devonian marbles and micaschists. 2. Numerous flows of augite-rhyolite built up the vast cone of the Nimrud Dagh, and the increasing pressure...

Page 162 - Wellenberuhigurig," •by MM Richter (see NATURE, vol. xlix. p. 488), the opinion is expressed that the tendency of oil to spread itself on water is only due to the free oleic acid contained in it, and that if it were possible to completely purify the oil from oleic acid, it would not spread at all.

Page 4 - Vol. xxn. p. 39 (1913). so. As an alternative to an inclined plane surface, consideration is given to a. broken surface consisting of two parts, each of which is parallel to the first plane surface but at a different distance from it. It appears that this is the form which must be approached if we wish the total pressure supported to be a maximum, when the length of the bearing and the closest approach are prescribed. In these questions we may anticipate that our calculations correspond pretty closely...
Page 50 - E a light may be obtained from a Cooper-Hewett MercuryVapour Lamp, combined with a suitable filter. The light from the source is reflected by the adjustable mirror A through the condensing-lens B, by means of which it is condensed on the aperture of the diaphragm C. The diverging beam of light is collimated by a lens D, and falls as a parallel beam on a plane parallel plate K, the second surface of which is silvered lightly so that a part of the Fig. 1. Diagram of Prism Interferometer. light is transmitted...

Page 140 - Armenia came into existence ut a period when the sedimentary rocks could no longer be folded, but were fractured along definite lines, and Nimrud is situated on the great fracture transverse to the Armenian folds at the apex of their bending round from the Antitauric (west-southwest to east-north-east) to the Persian (north-west to south-east) direction, and it also marks the point of intersection of this fracture with a great north-east to north-west fracture (Caucasian direction), which delimits...
