THERE seems to be at present a wide divergence of views regarding the magnitude of pressure in the “reversing layers” of stars. While earlier investigators assigned to it a pressure of one to ten atmospheres, on the basis of pressure shift of lines to the red, these experiments do not appear to carry much weight at present.
