The entire height of this colossal structure from the base of the masonry foundation to the upper part of the steam cylinder is 31 meters (102 feet), but notwithstanding this unfavorable condition for stability and the enormous effect resulting from a shock of 500,000 kilogrammeters, everything is so well proportioned that there is but slight vibration.

This height of fall, multiplied by the 100,000 kilogrammes of the mass, gives a working force of 500,000 kilogrammeters, or about 1,640 foot tons.

With a power of 25 kilogrammeters it furnishes a current of 40 volts and 7 amperes, which is more than sufficient to run two 50candle incandescent lamps.

Now we can calculate the difference of the work of the pump, and put at 1 kilogramme of condensed liquid the difference of mechanical work represented in kilogrammeters.

In an experiment made since then, I have succeeded in developing in each of these four machines 50 kilogrammeters per second, whatever was the number of those that were running; and I found it possible to add the hammer on a derived circuit without notably affecting the operation of the receivers.

The results were: intensity, 1 ampere; electromotive power, 25 volts, corresponding to an energy of 25 voltamperes, or about 2.5 kilogrammeters per second.

Each of these machines was making 1,500 revolutions per minute and developing 25 kilogrammeters per second, measured by means of a

In our opinion, Mr. Scrivanow's pile is not adapted for industrial use because of the expense of the silver and the frequent manipulations it requires, but it has the advantage, however, of possessing, along with its small size and little weight, a disposable energy of from 150,000 to 200,000 kilogrammeters utilizable at the will of the consumer and securing to him a certain number of applications, either for lighting or the production of power.

Accepting the data given above and the 20 hours 'uninterrupted duration of the pile's operation the power furnished by this large model is equal to 2.5 x 20 x 3,600 = 180,000 kilogrammeters.

The total electric work stored up is 130,000 kilogrammeters, or 7,600 kilogrammeters per kilogramme of accumulator.
