TitleReferee's report by Samuel Walter Johnson Smith, on a paper 'The specific heat of nickel and of some nickel-copper alloys' by K E Grew
Date24 February 1934
DescriptionSectional Committee: Physics

Recommended for publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London'. Thinks 'it would be a pity if this paper, or the gist of it, were not published somewhere'. The author admits that the results are not as accurate as they might be, but they are adequate for the purposes of the paper. Refers to work of E Lapp, Willie Sucksmith and H H Potter. Discusses the experimental methods and results. Suggests reducing the length of the paper. Thinks the paper would be accepted as it is by the Philosophical Magazine or the Physical Society, but the paper may not be off first class importance for the Proceedings.
