TitlePaper, 'Note on the order of reversability of the lithium lines' by [George Downing] Liveing and [James] Dewar
DescriptionLiveing and Dewar write: 'In our communications on the reversal of the lines of metallic vapours, we have several times noticed (“Proc. Roy. Soc.,” vol. 28, pp. 357, 369, 473) the reversal of the lithium lines, and concluded that; the blue line is more easily reversed than the orange line. This, however, does not appear to be really the case.'
