Einstein originated the inquiries
into the transfer of energy from
one atom to another which have
since been carried on by two Dan-
ish physicists, Klein and Rosseland,
a German, Franck, and a Johns
Hopkins professor, R. W. Wood, and
are now being studied by Professor
The transfer of energy is of ir-
calculable importance in the chem-
ical application of physical princi-
ples. The amount of energy differ-
ence between one atom and anoth-
er determines the speed of reaction
of chemical compounds. The ex-
periment also will enable chemists
to determine in advance whether
any reaction will take place be-
tween two compounds. It will also
be of great importance in the study
of the ,production of light.
The experiments concern in de-
tail these questions. Can an atom
in an excited or activated state
that is, one on which work has
been done, transfer some of its en-
ergy to another atom in an unex-
cited state when the two are
brought into proximity? If such a
transfer is po;ssible, under what
circumstance is it most likely to
One of the properties of the atom
is that it can only contain a few
given amounts of energy, or as the
physicist says, discrete amounts. It
may be able to have 10 units of en-
ergy and the next possible num-
ber of units is 16. Dr. Duffendack
wants to know whether an atom
whose energy capacity is 10 in an
activated state will transfer part
of this energy more readily to one
in an unexcited state whose capa-
city is 9.9 for instance, or 8. The

more delightful in taste.
Pure tobacco ... that sums it up.
Sun-ripened tobacco... sweetened
