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".

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.

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.(Throughout Winter Session). Demonstration on Monday at 12 noon. For practical work the class will be divided into two groups; one group will meet on Tuesday, and the other on Thursday, from 10 A.M. to 1 P.M. This course is devoted to prac tice in Chemical Methods and in Elementary Qualitative An alysis. 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.
SCHEME OF LECTURE COURSES FOR THE B.Sc. DEGREE IN CHEMISTRY, Subsequent to Courses I and II above.
III. Lecture Courses in Organic, Inorganic, and Physical Chemistry are given by the Professor and Lecturers as the exigencies of the times allow. The following arrangement of 1918-19 is given as liable to alteration.
(a) An Introductory Course of 30 lectures, mainly on some modern lines of advance in Physical Chemistry, by the Professor, three days weekly at noon in the Summer Session. Fee £2 2s.
(b) A combined course of Physical and Inorganic Chemistry of about 80 lectures by Dr. Gray, two days weekly at noon in Summer Session, three days weekly in Winter Session, at noon in the First, and at 3 P.M. in the Second Term. Fee, £3. 3s.
(c) A course of 50 lectures in Organic Chemistry in Winter Session, three days weekly at noon in the First, and two days weekly at 3 P.M. in the Second Term. Fee, £3 3s.

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 ".)

GENERAL LECTURE COURSE.-This course is attended during the summer session in Marischal College, meeting at 8 A.M., from Monday to Friday, and consists of "not fewer than fifty meetings". During past years the number of meetings in each session has been considerably above this minimum. The Senatus has sanctioned the distribution of the fifty meetings as follows:
Forty lectures, six oral examinations with tutorial instruction, two written examinations, and two excursions to enable students to observe plants in their native habitats. Additional meetings are at the discretion of the Professor.
