|Title||Paper, 'An account of an experiment shewing that actual sound is not to be transmitted through a vacuum' by Francis Hauksbee|
|Description||Hauksbee writes: 'That the Experiments already made, endeavouring to produce Sound from a Bell in Vacuo, have been altogether ineffectual, is sufficiently manifest: Yet that the loss of it should be wholly attributed to the absence of the Air, I think could not without another Experiment be absolutely concluded, since the following Query, (which very well deserves an Answer) might fairly be started upon this Occasion.'|
