Pagina 140 - ... contact with a liquid. Nearly all the crystallized salts possess this property. If a mixture be made of one of these salts with snow, or with some other liquid, the action of these substances on each other will convert one or both of them into liquids, one portion of their free caloric being consumed in effecting this change, as also part of the heat of the vessels containing the mixture.
