Mankind has a fascination with measurement. Down the centuries we have produced a plethora of incompatible and duplicatory systems for measuring everything from the width of an Egyptian pyramid to the concentration of radioactivity near a nuclear reactor and the value of the fine structure constant. With the introduction first of the metric system and of its successor the Système International d'Unités (SI), the scientific community has established a standard method of measurement based on only seven core units. The Encyclopaedia of Scientific Units, Weights and Measures converts the huge variety of units from all over the world in every period of recorded history into units of the SI. Featuring: - An A - Z of conversion tables for over 10,000 units of measurements. - Tables of the fundamental constants of nature with their units. - Listings of professional societies, and national standardization bodies for easy reference. - An extensive bibliography detailing further reading on the multifarious aspects of measurement and its units. This huge work is simply a "must have" for any reference library frequented by scientists of any discipline or by those with historical interests in units of measurement such as archaeologists.

In revising the text opportunity has been taken to introduce SI units throughout. An Appendix has been included which contains tables of SI units and a table of conversion factors for use when consulting data in non-SI units. Chapter 19 now includes experiments demon strating the use of ion-exchange and solid-liquid chromatography_ Exercises involving colorimetry have been included in Chapter 17. These techniques are introduced as part of a complementary exercise where their relevance is seen as part of a complete piece of work. Minor improvements have been made to some of the experimental procedures and we are grateful to those who have made helpful suggestions in this respect. G. PASS H. SUTCLIFFE iii Preface to the First Edition The student of inorganic chemistry is fortunate in having a wide choice of textbooks covering the descriptive and theoretical aspects of the sUbject. There is no comparable choice of textbooks covering practical inorganic chemistry. Moreover, there is a tendency for many students to draw an unfortunate distinction between chemistry taught in the lecture room, and laboratory work. Consideration of these points prompted the preparation of this book, in which we have attempted to emphasize the relationship between theory and practice.

The practical reference book and guide to fans, ventilation and ancillary equipment with a comprehensive buyers’ guide to worldwide manufacturers and suppliers. Bill Cory, well-known throughout the fans and ventilation industry, has produced a comprehensive, practical reference with a broad scope: types of fans, how and why they work, ductwork, performance standards, testing, stressing, shafts and bearings. With advances in technology, manufacturers have had to continually improve the performance and efficiency of fans and ventilation systems; as a result, improvements that once seemed impossible have been achieved. Systems now range in all sizes, shapes, and weight, to match the ever increasing applications. An important reference in the wake of continuing harmonisation of standards throughout the European Union and the progression of National and International standards. The Handbook of Fans and Ventilation is a welcome aid to both mechanical and electrical engineers. This book will help you to... •Understand how and why fans work •Choose the appropriate fan for the right job, helping to save time and money •Learn installation, operational and maintenance techniques to keep your fans in perfect working order •Discover special fans for your unique requirements •Source the most appropriate equipment manufacturers for your individual needs Helps you select, install, operate and maintain the appropriate fan for your application, to help you save time and money Use as a reference tool, course-book, supplier guide or as a fan/ventilation selection system Contains a guide to manufacturers and suppliers of ventilation systems, organised according to their different styles and basic principles of operation
