Caption: Physics experiment. 18th-century graphs and diagrams for observations of liquid held between two panes of glass. This engraving is panel 8 from the second edition (1719) of 'Physico-Mechanical Experiments on Various Subjects' by the English scientist and Royal Society demonstrator Francis Hauksbee (1666-1713). From 1703, Hawksbee was curator and instrument maker for the Royal Society, carrying out weekly demonstrations of machines such as air pumps and static electricity generators. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1706. This work, originally published in 1709, included experiments carried out at the Royal Society.
