TitlePaper, 'On the critical point of mixed gases' by Gerrard Ansdell
CreatorAnsdell; Gerrard (fl 1882)
DescriptionAnsdell writes: 'Having on two previous occasions communicated to the Society papers on the physical constants of liquid hydrochloric acid gas and liquid acetylene, under which head I include the coefficients of compres­sion and expansion, the critical points, and the volumes and tensions of the saturated vapour, it naturally led up to what promised to be a long investigation into the similar constants of other gases; and, amongst other things, the behaviour of two or more gases in presence of each other, more particularly with regard to the alteration of the critical point, appeared to me of especial interest.'
