|Title||Unpublished paper, 'On the existence of multiple proportion in the quantities of heat produced by the chemical combination of oxygen with other bodies' by Thomas Woods|
|Description||Wood suggests that whenever volume is altered there must be either an addition to or subtraction from the internal space of the body. This alteration of volume is evident in the case of bodies expanding or contracting by gain or loss of heat; but in chemical combination, where alteration of internal space must also take place, in chemical combination, Woods suggests, this alteration of internal space is not so plainly demonstrable. He presents a detailed account of experiments undertaken. This is an expanded version of an earlier paper (see AP/38/3).|
