    John Dalton (September 6, – J ) was an English chemist and physicist, born at Eaglesfield, near Cockermouth in Cumberland. He is most well known for his advocacy of the atomic theory and his research into color blindness sometimes called Daltonism in his honor. “Some new experiments and observations on the combination of gaseous mixtures, with an account of a method for keeping a continued light in mixtures of inflammable gases and air without flame". The paper goes on: **I had intended to expose fine platinum wires to oxygen and olefiant gas and to oxygen and hydrogen during their slow.

    It is perfectly clear from these experiments, that olefiant gas, even in small quantities, has a very remarkable influence in preventing the combination of oxygen and hydrogen under these circumstances, and yet without at all injuring or affecting the power of the platina” (Faraday, ).Cited by: 9.

Ethylene (IUPAC name: ethene) is a hydrocarbon which has the formula C 2 H 4 or H 2 C=CH is a colorless flammable gas with a faint "sweet and musky" odour when pure. It is the simplest alkene (a hydrocarbon with carbon-carbon double bonds). Ethylene is widely used in the chemical industry, and its worldwide production (over million tonnes in ) exceeds that of any other organic Appearance: colorless gas.

and in several other experiments there seemed to be nearly an equal effect, when the quantity of gas passed in the same time was the same. I imagined that the specific gravity of the gases might have some constant influence, but this does not seem to be the case; carbonic oxide and olefiant gas are nearly of the same density; and if the effect depended upon their weight, it should be nearly.

And there was a rumour, reported by Dr Alexander Marcet in a letter to Berzelius, that Davy must have known of Smithson Tennant's unpublished experiments, showing that explosions of mixtures of coal gas and air could not pass through narrow tubes, experiments that Tennant, an English chemist, had made in Cited by: 5.

Some very interesting experiments on the compression of gases have been made by M. Aime, in which oxygen, olefiant, nitric oxide, carbonic oxide, fluosilicon, hydrogen, and nitrogen gases were submitted to pressures, rising up to atmospheres in the case of the two last; but this was in the depths of the sea where the results under.

Olefiant gas is ethene, C 2 H 4. Carburetted hydrogen is methane, CH 4, the chief component in natural gas. Sulphuretted hydrogen is hydrogen sulfide, H 2 S, the odor of rotten eggs. Acetous acid is acetic acid, CH 3 COOH, the active ingredient in vinager.

Finally, Dalton chooses to write some of the more complex compounds as composed of. Faraday, Michael(b. Newington, Surrey [now part of Southwark, London], England, 22 September ; d.

Because the raw material for this oil was a gas, it was called ‘oil-making’ (olefiant) gas. 7 The data on strontium oxide also allow the relative molecular mass of the caprate moiety to be calculated according to: ( ) x ( + 16) = This figure, which is close to the one arrived at in the previous endnote, again supports the.

PREFACE. 11, Compton Street Soho. The following pages are intended to exhibit a summary view of the new art of procuring light, by means of carburetted hydrogen gas obtained from pit-coal, and which of late has been employed with unparalelled success, as a substitute for candles and lamps, and is known by the name of Gas-Light.

To accomplish this object, I have given, in the first part of. NOTE: This book was published in as a manual to accompany several Gilbert Chemistry sets of the time.

While some of the experiments and activities here may be safely done as written, a number of them use chemicals and methods no longer considered safe.

Early life. John Dalton was born into a Quaker family at Eaglesfield, near Cockermouth, Cumberland, England. [1] The son of a weaver, he joined his older brother Jonathan at age 15 in running a Quaker school in Kendal, about forty five miles Dalton seems to have considered taking up law or medicine, but his projects were not met with encouragement from his relatives.
