Abstract

The Manhattan Project of the United States atomic energy program was designed essentially to produce methods and instruments of atomic warfare. Out of the many investigations made by the scientists and engineers working to attain this primary goal, much information of value was necessarily placed in the background and, as a consequence, a vast amount of material was only cursorily studied by these workers. The type of relationship between the per cent transmission and concentration decrease was to be investigated in the hope of establishing an empirical formula for use in a certain concentration range. As an added check on the precision of the experimentation a Warburg gas manometer, functioning as a coulometer (2), was incorporated in the system’s external circuit.
