Quantitative Expressions f o r t h e Velocity , Temperaturecoeflcient, and E f e c t of the Cutalyst from the Point of View of the Radiation Hypothesis. By WILLIAM CUDMORE MCCULLAGH LEWIS. THE well-known fact that the velocity of an ordinary or thermal reaction is very sensitive to changes in temperature indicates that ultimately velocity and temperature are due t o a common cause, both being manifestations of a
