5. How would you ascertain the quality of boiler water? What treat- 17 ment do you consider to be most economical when the water contains (1) not more than 1.5 gr. scale-forming material in 10 litres, (2) considerably more than this amount, and is (a) temporarily hard, (6) permanently hard ?

6. Compare the Deacon process of manufacturing chlorine with the 17 Weldon process of chlorine-making and manganese recovery, with a view to show, why the latter is practically preferred, though the former is theoretically a more perfect process.

7. What relative quantities of salt and acid of specific gravity 1.70 (78 16 per cent. pure acid) should a charge for the manufacture of nitric acid theoretically contain, and why is the practical charge different ? Describe the condensing system for nitric acid which, in your opinion, would be most adapted to the requirements of this country.
