|Referee's report by Hugh Longbourne Callendar, on a paper 'The measurement of the pressure coefficient of Oxygen' by W Makower and Henry R Noble
|Sectional Committee: Physics and Chemistry
Recommended for publication in the Proceedings of the Royal Society of London, if parts are suitably omitted. Modification is not discussed and there are no illustrations. In general thinks the work does not involve any novelty in method or results, and is not of an exceptionally high order of accuracy. On a separate manuscript note Callendar discusses possible omissions which might be made. On page two the details of the correction for parallax might be omitted. The 12 pages of tables following page five might be omitted, giving only one, preferably that of the steam point, to the order of accuracy obtained in the observations. In the last two pages the calculation is not quite clear. The results for the cooling effect do not give d(pv)/dp directly. It is not clear what observations are employed or how the value given is deduced.
