ELEMENTS OF HEAT
ESPECIALLY DESIGNED FOR CANDIDATES FOR THE
MATRICULATION PASS EXAMINATION OF
THE UNIVERSITY OF LONDON.
B.A. (loud.), Ph.d., F.E.S.E., F.C.S.,
LATE PROFESSOR OP CHEMISTRY AND PHYSICS, ROYAL COLLEGE, MAURITIUS.
This little treatise is intended for the use of Candidates for the Matriculation Pass Examination of the University of London. It is believed to contain all (and hut little more than all) that is required for the chemical branch of that examination.
On page ix will be found a list of the subjects in this branch, a knowledge of which is demanded by the University. Attached to each is given the number of page and paragraph where the subject is discussed. It will be seen that the order of the subjects required for the examination has been adhered to as strictly as possible.
There is in each Chapter about sufficient material for a lesson. Those to whom the subject is entirely new and who have not the advantage of receiving oral instruction, should not attempt to understand everything on the first reading. They should read the book carefully, but rapidly, once or twice, so as to gain a general idea of the nature of the subject. After being laid aside for a time, the book should be taken up again and studied so as not to leave a single point in obscurity.
The considerable changes which have recently been introduced into the views regarding the composition of many bodies, have received careful consideration. The combining weights or equivalents of the elements here given are those almost universally
