14. Diagram of a balance. 23 GENERAL LABORATORY APPARATUS Procedure for weighing a given quantity (1) With the balance at rest, and the rider at zero, place a watch glass on the left-hand pan. Using forceps, place a slightly greater weight on the right-hand pan. (2) Raise the cross-beam, to verify from the swing of the pointer that the weight is in fact heavier than the watch glass. If the pointer swings to the left it indicates that the left-hand pan is lighter and that the weight on the right is too heavy.

20) The gas enters tube (A) and the chamber is filled via the gap (B) and the by-pass (C). From the chamber it passes to the outlet tube (D), and thence to the gas burner which is situated under the incubator. Capsule (E) expands when the temperature has reached the point at which its contained liquid boils. The sudden expansion of the capsule raises the rod (F), and consequently tilts the beam (GH) so that its point (I) depresses the valve (J), closing the gap (B). This cuts off the supply of gas to the chamber, except for the small quantity through the by-pass (C).

This is effected 19 GENERAL LABORATORY APPARATUS by gas burners, electricity (immersion heaters), oil burners, or by passing steam through a coil immersed in water. (b) Steam provided from an external source, that is, * direct ' steam. All autoclaves are tested by steam and hydraulic pressure, and they can withstand pressures at least 50 per cent greater than those recommended for use. Technique of using gas-heated autoclaves (1) Pour the required amount of water into the bottom of the boiler. (2) Pack the material to be sterilized in a cage or on a ledge which fits into the boiler above water level.
