Summary

Experiments have been performed to determine the effect of temperature on the sensitivity of a bubble chamber filled with various concentrations of methane gas in liquid propane. It has been found that as the concentration of methane is increased the operating pressure, for any given degree of sensitivity, encreases by about 0.3 atmosphere for every 1 ° C decrease in temperature achieved.

Riassunto

Si sono eseguiti esperimenti per determinare l’effetto della temperatura sulla Eensibilità di una camera a lolla riempita con differenti concentrazioni di metano gassoso in propano liquido. Si e trovato che aumentando la concentrazione del metano la pressione d’esercizio, per qualsiasi grado di sensibilita aumenta di circa 0.3 atmosfere per ogni ‡C di diminuizione della temperatura.
