Page 126 - Ampere, which is one-tenth of the unit of current of the CGS system of electromagnetic units and which is represented sufficiently well for practical use by the unvarying current which, when passed through a solution of nitrate of silver in water, in accordance with a certain specification, deposits silver at the rate of 0.001118 of a gramme per second.
Page 763 - To conclude therefore, let no man upon a weak conceit of .sobriety or an ill-applied moderation think or maintain, that a man can search too far, or be too well studied in ihe book of God's word, or in the book of God's works, Divinity or Philosophy ; but rather let 'men endeavour an endless progress or proficience in both...
