It was Blackie Rowland's old workings, back during the war, Roger answered.
18 is copied from Rowland's paper.
This disposition is adopted in Rowland's instrument; only, in addition to the central image formed at the angle 4' =4), there are a series of spectra with various values of 4', but all disposed upon the same circle.
Rowland's investigation is contained in the paper already referred to; but the following account of the theory is in the form adopted by R.
In Rowland's dividing engine the screws were prepared by a special process devised by him, and the resulting gratings, plane and concave, have supplied the means for much of the best modern optical work.
At the present time excellent reproductions of Rowland's speculum gratings are on the market (Thorp, Ives, Wallace), prepared, after a suggestion of Sir David Brewster, by coating the original with a varnish, e.g.
This led the bishop of St David's to suspend Rowland's license, and Rowland had to confine himself to a meeting-house at Llangeitho.
Llangeitho became the Jerusalem of Wales, and Rowland's popularity never waned until his physical powers gave way.
Rowland's efforts the construction of gratings has been improved to such an extent that their use is becoming universal whenever great power or accuracy is required.
Rowland'S Apparatus Is Shown In Fig.
Expressed In J Oules Per Calorie The Result Is 4.1832, Which Agrees Very Closely With The Value Foand By Rowland As The Mean Over The Range 15° To 20° C. The Value 4.183 Is Independently Confirmed In A Remarkable Manner By The Results Of The Electrical Method Described Below, Which Give 4.185 Joules For The Mean Calorie, If Rowland'S Value Is Assumed As The Starting Point, And Taken To Be 4.180 Joules At 20° C.
In Spite Of The Large Corrections The Results Were Extremely Consistent, And The Value Of The Temperature Coefficient Of The Diminution Of The Specific Heat Of Water, Deduced From The Observed Variation In The Rate Of Rise At Different Points Of The Range 15° To 25°, Agreed With The Value Subsequently Deduced From Rowland'S Experiments Over The Same Range, When His Thermometers Were Reduced To The Same Scale.
The Difference From Rowland'S Value, 4.181, Could Be Explained By Supposing The E.M.F.
Stracciati By The Method Of Mixture Between O° And 30° C., Though Their Curve Is Otherwise Similar To Rowland'S, Had Appeared To Indicate A Minimum At 20° C., Followed By A Rapid Rise.
The Value 4.180 Joules At 20° C. Is The Mean Between Rowland'S Corrected Result 4.181 And The Value 4.179, Deduced From The Experiments Of Reynolds And Moorby On The Assumption That The Ratio Of The Mean Specific Heat O° To 100° To That At 20° Is 1.043'6, As Given By The Formulae Representing The Results Of Callendar And Barnes.
This Would Indicate That Rowland'S Corrected Values Should, If Anything, Be Lowered.
It May Be Remarked That Starting From The Same Value At 5°, For The Sake Of Comparison, Rowland'S Values Of The Total Heat Agree To I In 5000 With Those Calculated From The Formulae.
It Was Supposed At The Time, From The Original Reduction Of Rowland'S Experiments, That This Would Be Nearly At 10° C., But It Now Appears That It May Be As Low As 5° C., Which Would Be Inconvenient.
For their production, therefore, dividing engines of extraordinary trueness and delicacy must be employed, and in the construction of such machines Rowland's engineering skill brought him conspicuous success.
