The first, and most important, is that the quotient is placed above the dividend.
This quotient is called the change of entropy, and may be denoted by (4,"-0').
+ 1/n+ 271+ ., where, after the n th partial quotient, the cycle of partial quotients b 1, b2, ..., b n recur in the same order, is the type of a recurring simple continued fraction.
Experiment, however, showed that while the quotient on the left hand of this equation was fairly constant for a great number of substances, yet its value was not gR but 7 R; this means that the critical density is, as a general rule, 3.7 times the theoretical density.
If we divide n 9 by n P, the quotient is of course 1.
