The results in this new Psychrometrical Table, nevertheless, by no means entirely coincide with those given by the formula, as a comparison with those in Table VII. will show. FACTORS TO FIND OUT THE TEMPERATURE OF THE DEW-POINT FROM THF. READINGS OF THE PSYCHROMETER. GLAISHER. MISCELLANEOUS TABLES, COMPARING THE HTGROMETRICAL RESULTS OBTAINED BY DIFFERENT AUTHORITIES. 145 MISCELLANEOUS TABLES. The object of these Tables is to afford the means of comparing the different determinations of the hygrometrical elements which have been obtained, or adopted, by various physicists, especially the values of the elastic forces of vapor given in other tables than those contained in the preceding pages. Table XVIII., giving the elastic forces of vapor, expressed in millimetres of mercury, for Centigrade temperatures, was calculated by August from Dalton's experiments, and reduced to French measures in the translation of Kaemtz's Meteorology, by Chas. Martins, page 70, from which it has been taken. On these values are based the first psychrometrical tables published by August, in Berlin, 1825. Table XIX. is the table computed by Kaemtz from his own experiments. It is found, reduced to French measures, in the same volume, page 68. Table XX. furnishes the results of the experiments made by Professor Magnus, in Berlin, and published in Poggendorfs Annalen, Tom. LXI. p. 226, and also in the Annates de Chimie et de Physique, 3me serie, Tom. XII. p. 88, from which this table was copied. Table XXI. has been published by the Committee of Physics and Meteorology of the Royal Society, in their Report on the Objects of Scientific Inquiry in these...
