Reflections on the motive power of fire by
Sadi Carnot(
Book
)
11 editions published between 1960 and 2005 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The title essay, along with other papers in this volume, laid the foundation of modern thermodynamics. Highly readable, Reflections contains no arguments that depend on calculus, examining the relation between heat and work in terms of heat in steam engines, airengines, and an internal combustion machine. Translation of 1890 edition

The Determination of the Newtonian constant of gravitation(
Visual
)
3 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Newtonian constant of gravitation is determined by measuring the gravitational force of attraction between massive spheres of lead and mercury. A torsion balance is used to measure the deflection angle which balances the tosional couple of the balance with the gravitational couple exerted by the massive spheres. Students record clockwise and counterclockwise deflections of the balance for massive spheres of different weights and materials. The torsion constant of the balance is also measured by allowing it to swing freely and timing the period of oscillation. The product of this torsion constant and the deflection angle is directly related to the Newtonian constant of gravitation. The proportionality constant in the relationship depends on the weights of the spheres, not their composition. Students can verify this by comparing their values of G for the lead and mercury spheres

Electron Diffraction(

)
5 editions published between 1986 and 2007 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The wave behavior of electrons is studied by measuring the diffraction ring diameters produced when accelerated electrons pass through a graphite lattice. Students record the ring diameters for different electron accelerating voltages. The wavelength of the electrons is directly related to the ring diameters. Students can also verify de Broglie's relation, which states that the electron's wavelength is Planck's constant divided by the electron's momentum since the momentum is proportional to the square root of the accelerating voltage

The determination of a radioactive halflife(
Visual
)
4 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this program students measure the radioactive halflife of a metastable indium isotope produced by the neutron irradiation of an indium foil. After the sample has been irradiated, the number of ssrays emitted can be measured with a Geiger counter. Students record the number of clicks of the Geiger counter for oneminute periods at halfhour intervals. By plotting the logarithm of the number of counts as a function of real time, the halflife can be read directly
