TitleReferee's report by William Ramsay, on a paper 'On the ratio of the specific heats of some compound gases' by J W Capstick
Datend [1895]
DescriptionNo clear statement regarding publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. Suggests more details of the experimental method be given. Refers to work of Henri Victor Regnault and Joseph Louis Gay-Lussac. Considers it a shame if the work was to be archived; suggests returning the paper to the author for revision.
