On the theory of extraction from falling droplets II
The theory of extraction of a substance, dissolved in droplets of a fluid, when these are falling (or rising) in an other fluid under the influence of gravity, is specialized for the case that theExpand

Spinning Electrons and the Structure of Spectra
RECENTLY Uhlenbeck and Goudsmit (NATURE, February 20, p. 264; see also Naturw., November 20, 1925) have directed attention to the fact that a number of features of multiplet structure and theExpand

ON THE THEORY OF THE HEAT AND MASS TRANSFER FROM A SPHERE IN A FLOWING MEDIUM AT LOW VALUES OF REYNOLDS' NUMBER
A perturbation method is developed for computing the heat transfer from a sphere at uniform constant temperature to a medium flowing past it as a function of the radius of the sphere, the velocity ofExpand

On the hydrodynamics of non-viscous fluids and the theory of helium II
Synopsis The classical hydrodynamics of non-viscous fluids for the case of irrotational motion and in the absence of external forces is represented in terms of general field theory. The velocityExpand

Remarkable Optical Properties of the Alkali Metals
RECENTLY Wood1 has published a full account of some beautiful experiments on the optical behaviour of the alkali metals, of which a preliminary report appeared in these columns2. His main results are:

Remarkable Optical Properties of the Alkali Metals
IN a recent communication, Zener1 has given an interesting interpretation of the peculiar optical properties of the alkali metals discovered by Wood2, differing from that which I previously suggestedExpand

On the theory of heat transfer from a wire in an electric field
If an electric field is applied between a horizontal heated wire and a concentric cylinder filled with gas, then, as first shown experimentally by Senftleben and Braun, the heat transfer from theExpand
