The Class of Physics, arranged primarily for Medical students, is also recognised as a half-course for students in Arts and Science. It meets daily during the summer term at 12 noon. The course embraces :

I. The statics and kinetics of solids, liquids and gases.

Under this head are included, besides the ordinary elements of mechanics, the elementary theory of elasticity, the flow of liquids in tubes, and the elements of capillarity.

II. The rudiments of sound, light, heat, electricity and magnetism.

In the lectures not more mathematics is employed than can be followed by students who have passed the Preliminary Examination, and special attention is given to those parts of the subject which have been found to possess medical applications.

A class for practical work meets two or three days in the week.

Students may read, in connection with the lectures, one or more of the following Text-books: Balfour Stewart's "Lessons in Elementary Physics"; Daniell's "Principles of Physics"; Ganot's "Physics" (translated by Atkinson); Deschanel's "Natural Philosophy" (translated by Everett); Wundt's "La Physique Médicale" (translated into French by Monoyer); Lehfeldt's Physics"; Candy's "Physics for Medical Students".

Fee, £3 3s.



The physical laboratory is open to students for instruction in physical measurements from 9.30 to 12.30 P.M. on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the Winter Session, and three days per week during the Summer Session.

The course of instruction includes: the use of scales, the sextant, measurement of gravity, friction, elastic constants, thermal constants, the earth's magnetism, magnetic properties of iron, etc., measurements of electric currents, electrical resistance and electromotive forces, indices of refraction, properties of lenses, wave lengths of light, etc., etc.

Students are recommended to read in connection with their practical work one or other of these works:

Glazebrook and Shaw-"Practical Physics".

Stewart and Gee-" Elementary Practical Physics".
Kohlrausch-"Physical Measurements".
Ostwald-"Physico-Chemical Measurements".
For fees, etc., see under "University Fees".

1890 Francis Robert Japp, M.A., LL.D., F.R.S., retired 1914.

Lecturers-Francis W. Gray, M.A., D.Sc.; Joseph Knox, D.Sc.

I. GENERAL LECTURE COURSE, SYSTEMATIC CHEMISTRY.-(Daily during the Winter Session at 3 P.M.) These Lectures treat of: (1) The Laws of Chemical Combination and the General Principles of Chemistry, including Chemical Calculations; (2) the Elements classified according to the Periodic Law; (3) Organic Chemistry; (4) Applications of Chemistry to the Arts and Manufactures. Two written Class Examinations are held.

A Tutorial Class (without fee) is held in connection with the General Lecture Course.

Text-books: For all students-Inorganic Chemistry, by G. S. Newth (Longmans), and Knox's "Elementary Chemical Theory and Calculations" (Gurney & Jackson). For Science studentsJ. B. Cohen's “Theoretical Organic Chemistry " (Macmillan). For Medical students-Organic Chemistry for Students of Medicine, by J. Walker (Gurney & Jackson). For more advanced reading for Science students-Roscoe and Schorlemmer's "Treatise on Chemistry" (Macmillan).

Fees, for first attendance, £4 4s. ; for subsequent attendance, £3 3s.

II. ELEMENTARY PRACTICAL COURSE FOR ALL STUDENTS.(Spring Term.) Demonstration on Monday at 12 noon. For practical work the class will be divided into two groups; one group will meet on Tuesday and Thursday, and the other on Wednesday and Friday, from 10 A.M. to 1 P.M. This course is devoted to practice in Chemical Methods and in Elementary Qualitative Analysis. The instruction is under the direction of the Professor of Chemistry and the Staff. One practical examination is held at the end of the course, namely, the Degree Examination, but it must be attended by all, those not sitting the Degree Examination taking it as a Class Examination. Students in all faculties are required to pass this practical examination as well as the written examination, as part of the requirements for the Degree. The practical course should be taken, whenever possible, concurrently with the Systematic course.

Text-book-Practical Chemistry for Medical Students, by A. C. Cumming (J. Thin, Edinburgh).

Fee, £3 3s. This fee includes the necessary apparatus and appliances, with certain exceptions such as platinum foil and wire. Breakages must be made good by the student.


III. (a) Introductory Physical Chemistry, fifteen lectures, by the Professor. Fee, £1 1s., daily at noon for the first three weeks of the Summer Session.

(b) Physical Chemistry, 40 lectures, Fee, £2 2s.) (e) Inorganic Chemistry, 40 lectures, Fee, £2 2s. £3 3s. for both, by Dr. Gray, extending over the last seven weeks of Summer Session (Mon., Wed., Frid., noon), and the following Winter Session (Mon., Tues., Thur., 3-4 P.M. before Christmas, and Mon., Wed., Frid., noon, after Christmas).

(d) Advanced Physical Chemistry, fifteen lectures, by the Professor, Fee, £1 1s., Thur. and Frid, at noon for the last seven weeks of the Summer Session.

(e) Organic Chemistry, fifty lectures, by Dr. Knox, Fee, £3 3s., Winter Session, Mon., Wed. and Frid. at noon before Christmas and Tues. and Thur. at 3-4 P.M. after Christmas.

Text Books: Cohen's "Theoretical Organic Chemistry"; Newth's "Inorganic Chemistry"; Senter's "Outlines of Physical Chemistry" (Methuen); "Physico-Chemical Calculations," by J. Knox (Methuen); "Phase Rule," by Alex. Findlay; and, for reference, the other text-books of this series ("Text-Books of

Physical Chemistry," edited by Sir William Ramsay, Longmans); Soddy's "Chemistry of the Radio-Elements," Parts I. and II. (Longmans).

IV. CHEMICAL LABORATORY.-The Laboratory is open daily from 9 A.M. to 5 P.M. Each student on entering will be allowed to arrange his hours of work so as to suit his own convenience, but must adhere to these hours when once fixed. The aim of the Laboratory Courses is to train the student in the practical methods of the science, so as to enable him to conduct chemical analysis and original research, and to apply chemistry to the arts and manufactures. Weekly Demonstrations, attendance on which is compulsory, are held in connection with the Laboratory Courses. (For further information as to fees and other conditions, see "University Fees ".)

Text-books: "A Junior Course of Practical Chemistry" (latest edition), by Francis Jones (Macmillan); "Text-book of Quantitative Chemical Analysis," by A. C. Cumming and S. A. Kay (Gurney & Jackson); "Manual of Physical Chemistry," F. W. Gray (Macmillan).

For the Final B.Sc. Examination in Chemistry the following courses of Practical Work must be taken: First and Second Gravimetric, First and Second Volumetric, Elementary and Advanced Qualitative Inorganic, Organic, Physical and Supplementary Course.

The Time-table for the Practical Work and Demonstrations in connection with these courses is as follows:
