Theoretically the critical volume is three times the volume at absolute zero, i.e.
It may he shown theoretically that the absolute boiling-point is proportional to the molecular volume, and, since this property is additive, the boiling-point should also be additive.
The theoretical basis upon which this formula was devised (the corpuscular theory) was shattered early in the 19th century, and in its place there arose the modern wave theory which theoretically invalidates Newton's formula.
The systems of guarantee above described are clearly faulty, since theoretically the railway company which ran no trains at all would, up to the limit of its guarantee, make the largest profits.
So accurate and convenient is this determination that it is now used conversely as a practical definition of the ampere, which (defined theoretically in terms of magnetic force) is defined practically as the current which in one second deposits i '18 milligramme of silver.
The logarithmic formulae for these concentration cells indicate that theoretically their electromotive force can be increased to any extent by diminishing without limit the concentration of the more dilute solution, log c i /c 2 then becoming very great.
Any reversible cell can theoretically be employed as an accumulator, though, in practice, conditions of general convenience are more sought after than thermodynamic efficiency.
2 That part of the papal revenue which consisted of first-fruits (primitiae or annates) and tenths (decimae) must have been theoretically simoniacal in its origin.
While, however, he was theoretically paid by the king, he seems to have been himself one of the sources of the royal revenue.
When the series is theoretically continuous, the theoretical graph will be a continuous figure of which the lines actually drawn are ordinates.
Theoretically, no limit can be assigned to the number of possible algebras; the varieties actually known use, for the most part, the same signs of operation, and differ among themselves principally by their rules of multiplication.
These subdivisions of the larger groups are not necessarily those theoretically approved by the present writer, but they have the valuable sanction of the individual experts who have given special attention to different of the vast field represented by the animal kingdom.'
In estimating theoretically the resolving power on a double star we have to consider the illumination of the field due to the superposition of the two independent images.
Math., 1879, 2, p. 33 o), both theoretically and experimentally.
Though theoretically a free trader, he was largely instrumental in creating the Italian protective system.
Of water, the lift cannot be theoretically more than this distance when water is being pumped.
That is what we expect to be able to do, because it is theoretically possible in a hundred different ways.
It is to solve some of the problems of life, not only theoretically, but practically.
I speak understandingly on this subject, for I have made myself acquainted with it both theoretically and practically.
