Rayleigh Quenching of Active Nitrogen

ARISING out of work1 on the disappearance of the nitrogen afterglow by heating the activated gas at various pressures, it may be of interest to record results which indicate limits for the production of a like phenomenon observed by Lord Rayleigh2, namely, the quenching of the afterglow due to cooling by liquid air. With a condensed discharge in a Crookes… CONTINUE READING
