26. ($ 53, Exp. 1.) With the aid of an air-pump, phosphorus may be burnt in chlorine in the following manner: Place the chalk cup, with a bit of phosphorus in it, on the bottom of the nitricoxide jar (No. 18), and cover the jar with a well-fitting glass plate which has in its centre a round hole, 4 of an inch in diameter. This hole is closed with a rubber cork, through which passes a glass tube connected with a second glass tube by a short piece of rubber tubing provided with a nipper-tap. Connect the jar with the air-pump by rubber tubing, and exhaust the air. Close the nipper-tap, and connect the jar with a gas-bag filled with chlorine. Open the nipper-taps, and let the chlorine pass into the jar, until the pressure within is nearly but not quite equal to that outside. The phosphorus will soon take fire. If the jar were filled full of chlorine, the heat of the burning phosphorus would expand the chlorine, and force out some of it into the air.

27. ($ 60.) The color of iodine vapor may be shown by heating a few grains of iodine in a flask over the lamp.

28. ($ 65, Exp. 1.) Use tubulated retort (No. 20). Fill it nearly full of water, put in a small piece of phosphorus, and let the mouth of the retort dip under water. Heat the retort until the water in it boils, and then drop in a stick of caustic potash through the tubulature. The water is boiled first in order to drive out the air from the retort, so that the hydric phosphide may not take fire inside, and thus cause an explosion.

29. ($ 123, Exp. 1.) The process is the same as in the experiment in $ 33, using air instead of oxygen.

30. ($ 123, Exp. 2.) Observe the precautions given in § 12.

31. ($ 142, Exp. 1.) The sugar and the potassic chlorate should be pulverized separately, and then mixed carefully. Put the mixture on an earthen dish, and let one drop of sulphuric acid fall upon it from the end of a long glass rod. The experiment is brilliant, even with much smaller quantities.
