Thus, the ratio of the losses at the two ends is two to one - the same as the ratio of the assumed ionic velocities.
The velocities in air and water being respectively 1090 and 4700 ft.
The result has been that wind velocities published in many official publications have of ten been in error by nearly 5 0%.
He initiated in 1866 the spectroscopic observation of sunspots; applied Doppler's principle in 1869 to determine the radial velocities of the chromospheric gases; and successfully investigated the chemistry of the sun from 1872 onward.
There is reason to believe that in certain cases such complex ions do exist, and interfere with the results of the differing ionic velocities.
