I.—Andrews' Measurements of the Compression of Carbon Dioxide and of Mixtures of Carbon Dioxide and Nitrogen

  • C. G. Knott


After the death of the late Professor Tait in 1901, I was asked by the Council of the Royal Society of Edinburgh to carry to completion the task which Professor Tait had undertaken of presenting Professor Andrews' epoch-making work in such a form as to make possible the estimation of the true pressures.

At the meeting of February 20, 1899, Professor Tait communicated the first instalment of a paper on “The Experimental Bases of Professor Andrews' Paper on the Continuity of the Gaseous and Liquid States of Matter (Phil. Trans. 1869).”
