NATURAL PHILOSOPHY.-PART II.
The Board of Examiners.
Candidates may select any SIX of the following experi
ments, and will be asked to perform not more than THREE of those selected.
1. Determine the ratio of the circumference and
diameter of the given circle.
2. Verify Hooke's Law for the given spring.
3. Find the boiling point of the given liquid.
4. Determine the latent heat of steam.
5. Find the focal lengths of the two given lenses.
6. Determine, by the method of reflexions, the radius
of curvature of a convex surface.
7. Find the magnifying power of the given telescope
when used for the examination of a distant object.
8. Verify the inverse square law for like magnetic
9. Determine the magnetic dip.
10. Determine, by the P.O. Box, the resistance of the
11. Determine the resistance of the given coil by the
simple substitution method. 12. Arrange the apparatus needed to produce a pure
spectrum on the screen.
NATURAL PHILOSOPHY.-PART III.
The Board of Examiners. 1. Describe Regnault's method of determining the
specific heat of a gas at constant pressure.
State the results he arrived at by his experiments.
2. A given mass of a perfect gas is allowed to expand
into a perfectly empty vessel; determine the
change in its entropy. 3. If I be the latent heat of change of state expressed
in work units, and v the increase in volume of the unit mass of the substance after passing from one state to the other, prove that
dp λ =υ θ
do where p is the pressure and the temperature. 4. Define the terms “plane of incidence," "plane of
polarization,” “principal plane of a crystal.”
State and explain the relations between the principal plane in Iceland spar, and the planes of
polarization of the two refracted rays. 5. Describe Fresnel's rhomb, and the method of using
it to obtain circularly polarized light.
6. Light polarized in a plane perpendicular to the
plane of incidence, falls on the plane surface of a transparent medium at an angle of incidence o. Making the same assumptions as Fresnel, if the amplitude of the incident ray be unity, that of the reflected ray will be
tan (0 - 0)
tan ( + 0')
Hence explain Brewster's law for the polarizing angle.
7. Prove, completely, from first principles, that the
force just outside a charged conductor is equal to 4пр. .
8. Prove, completely, from first principles, that the
magnetic force near the centre within a very long helix, carrying a current C, is equal to 4ANC, where n is the number of turns of the helix per linear centimetre.
9. Give, as fully as you can, the reasoning by which
it is established that the E.M.F. of induction round any circuit is equal to the rate of decrease of the number of magnetic lines of force which pass through the circuit in the positive direction.
10. Describe the construction of an alternate current
transformer, and explain its theory in general terms.
Describe briefly the high-tension system of electric lighting, and explain its advantages and disadvantages.
Answer fully and clearly NINE, and only nine of the
following questions. 1. Explain the meaning of(a) Peculium. (6) Peculium adventitium. (c) Peculium castrense. (d) Peculium profectitium.
2. In the gens, as it co-existed with the State, plain
marks of independent legislative authority are
found. Give as many instances as you can. 3. Give a classification of the inferior population as
it existed in ancient society.
4. Describe a Roman funeral.
5. Give, with dates, any instances you remember of
the Comitia overruling the distribution of provinces made by the senate.
6. What was the effect of the battle of Cannae on
Hannibal's position in Italy ? 7. (a) When and under what circumstances did
Dacia become a Roman possession ? (6) When and under what circumstances did it cease to be a Roman possession ? (c) What memorials of the Dacian conquest still survive ?
8. Upon what Emperor, at what time, and under
what circumstances was the title Parthicus bestowed ?
9. Dean Merrivale institutes a comparison between
Marcus Aurelius and a famous English king:
the comparison ? 10. Trace the influence of the Grecian mythes as
stimulants to Grecian art. 11. The ancient philosophers and legislators were
deeply impressed with the contrast between an
inland and a maritime city. For what reasons ? 12. Wherein lies the chief importance of the First
Sacred War ? 13. Is it true to describe Cleisthenes as merely a
renovator of the Solonian Constitution after its overthrow by the Peisistratids?
HISTORY OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE.- Part I.
The Board of Examiners. Answer fully and clearly NINE, and only nine, of the
following questions. 1. Give a short account of the social and political life
of the English in their continental homes. 2. State generally what you conceive to have been
the effects on England of the rule of the foreign kings: Danish, Norman, and Angevin.
