Abstract

IN the concluding paragraph of my last paper (NATURE, vol. xii., p. 146), I brought under notice the remarkable difference in the effect of increased diameter upon the two great classes of pipes, regarded by me as referable to the fact of the mass of air in the pipe being in the one class (that of pipes with reeds of wood or metal) under the influence of a propulsive current, and in the other class (that of pipes with reeds of air, or flue-pipes), under the influence of an abstracting current; the distinction thus manifested on the mode of action will, if clearly apprehended, enable us to reconcile many apparent anomalies in the behaviour of pipes perplexing to inquirers.
