The Intelligent Investor

Multiple million hardcovers offered Now to be had for the 1st time in paperback The vintage textual content Annotated to replace Graham's undying knowledge for latest industry stipulations the best funding consultant of the 20th century, Benjamin Graham taught and encouraged humans all over the world. Graham's philosophy of "value making an investment" -- which shields traders from great blunders and teaches them to advance long term concepts -- has made "The clever Investor" the inventory industry bible ever given that its unique ebook in 1949.

Low-Temperature Physics: an introduction for scientists and engineers

This publication is meant to supply a transparent and unified advent to the physics of subject at low temperatures, and to take action at a degree obtainable to researchers new to the sphere and to graduate and senior undergraduate scholars. quick medical growth revamped the final seven years in a few particular areas-for instance, high-Tc superconductivity and the quantum corridor effect-has unavoidably rendered our prior subject at Low Temperatures a little bit old-fashioned.

18, the final (adiabatic) flame temperature can be shown to be 1228◦ C (1501 K), well below that at which the effect of dissociation is significant. 20). There is evidence to suggest that the same value also applies to the upper flammability (fuel-rich) limit (Mullins and Penner, 1959; Stull, 1971), but it cannot be derived by the same method as the lower limit because the products will contain a complex mixture of pyrolysis and partially oxidized products from the parent fuel. It should be noted that the temperature increases reported above will be accompanied by expansion of the gases.

Assume ideal gas behaviour. 2 Assuming ideal gas behaviour, what will the final volume be if 1 m3 of air is heated from 20◦ C to 700◦ C at constant pressure? 3 Calculate the vapour pressure of the following pure liquids at 0◦ C: (a) n-octane; (b) methanol; (c) acetone. 4 Calculate the vapour pressures of n-hexane and n-decane above a mixture at 25◦ C containing 2% n-C6 H14 + 98% n-C10 H22 , by volume. Assume that the densities of pure n-hexane and n-decane are 660 and 730 kg/m3 , respectively and that the liquids behave ideally.

Ethene and ethyne) are less stable than the parent elements and are known as endothermic compounds. Under appropriate conditions they can be made to decompose with the release of energy. Ethyne (acetylene), which has a large positive heat of formation, can decompose with explosive violence. 3 kPa) and an ambient temperature of 298 K (25◦ C) and to complete combustion. , water as a product is in the vapour state. 44 kJ/g (44 kJ/mol) at 25◦ C). 4) is less than unity. The actual heat released could be estimated by using Hess’ law of constant heat summation if the composition of the combustion products was known.
