The Atomic Weight of “Thorium” Lead

  title={The Atomic Weight of “Thorium” Lead},
  author={F. Soddy},
IN continuation of preliminary work published by Mr. H. Hyman and myself (Trans. Chem. Soc., 1914, cv., 1402) I gave an account in NATURE, February 4, 1915, p. 615, of the preparation of 80 grams of lead from Ceylon thorite and of the determination of its odensity in comparison with that of ordinary lead, which proved the thorite lead to be 0.26 per cent, denser. Taking the new international figure, 207.20, for the atomic weight of common lead, that for the thorite lead would be 207.74 on the… Expand
Stefanie Horovitz, Ellen Gleditsch, Ada Hitchins, and the Discovery of Isotopes
In the scientific discovery process, one tends to focus on the "Great Name" and ignore the co-researcher who made the actual discovery or contributed significantly to the discovery. The firstExpand
The Upgrade of the PreProcessor of the ATLAS Level-1 Calorimeter Trigger for the LHC Run-2
The new Multichip Module builds upon the Run-1 signal processing implementation and expands it with enhanced noise filtering techniques, independent energy calibration for electromagnetic and hadronic objects, improved processing of saturated signals and bunch-crossing-wise pile-up subtraction.
