» First, what is the nature of the flame?


Fig. 15

Seven Spectra taken at intervals of two minutes during the course of a “blow.”
In the first or slag period, the lines of manganese are alone visible. In the second, the lines and some bands of manganese and the yellow line of sodium are visible. After the second period, the change in the spectra, caused by rise of temperature is readily seen, the lines of iron and the bands of manganese become more numerous.

Spectra however differ not only with the metal blown in different works, but even with the same metal during different blows, according to the composition in the first case, and to the temperature in the second. But besides these variations there are certain broad facts which call for explanation. First, what is the nature of the flame?

Having then proved that bright light had so strong an effect on woods and certain other bodies, the next step was to ascertain which waves were the most active in producing this effect. With this object stripes of different coloured glasses were laid on sections of different woods and then exposed to sunlight… Fig. 38 shows the action of a blue and a green glass and no glass on the wood… Many different woods were tried, but the effects produced in all cases were of precisely the same character.
