Although the time required was much longer than when acid was used, amounting to three hours for the oxidizement of 7.55 grains of zinc, still I found that the hydrogen evolved at the platina plate was the equivalent of the metal oxidized at the surface of the zinc.
The oxid of iron, thus obtained, was not in the high - est state of oxidizement, for, it was completely, although not pow - erfully, attractable by the magnet, by which the whole of it was actually transferred from a glass plate to a wine glass.
The excess, instead of the usual loss, proceeds manifestly from the oxidizement of the iron, in a considerable, but un - known proportion.
