TitleReferee's report by Charles Vernon Boys, on paper 'The dependence of the Refractive Index of gases on temperature' by George Walker Walker
DateMarch 1903
DescriptionSectional Committee: Physics and Chemistry

Recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions. Plate one with figures one to four should appear as it is. The other diagrams are illustrations of the accuracy of the work and appear to be needed for finding the refractive index of the gases. Does not think all the lines could be placed on one chart owing to the different scales. Queries if some diagrams may be given as examples for the reader.

[Published in Philosophical Transactions A, 1903].
