Sorry, no etymologies found.
It remains a fact, however, that no matter with what skill and care the gasometric analysis is made, either gravimetrically or volumetrically, the calculation of the residual amount of oxygen presents the same difficulties in both cases.
This amount can readily be found from the gasometric analysis of the oxygen and from the well-known relation between the weight and the volume of nitrogen the weight can be accurately found.
In a gasometric determination 71.3 c.c. of gas were obtained from
~ -- Lange's nitrometer (fig. 69) is a very convenient instrument for many gasometric methods.
~ -- For the gasometric method of analysing for dissolved oxygen, and for the Schützenberger's volumetric method, the student is referred to Sutton's "Volumetric Analysis."
These three illustrations serve as types of the three chief classes of volumetric assays -- titrometric, gasometric, and colorimetric.
We will give (1) a gravimetric method in which the estimation may be made directly by weighing the carbonic acid, or, indirectly, by estimating the carbon dioxide from the loss; (2) a volumetric one, by which an indirect determination is made of the gas; and (3) a gasometric method, in which the volume of carbon dioxide given off is measured, and its weight deducted.
The apparatus described in the chapter on gasometric method is used.
