Experiment to calculate the speed of sound in air, Paris, 1822, (c1880). In 1822 the French appointed a commission to find the speed of sound in air. Two hills near Paris were chosen for the experiment, at Villejuif and Montlhery. On each hill a gun was discharged. Observers on the other hill, by noting the time of the flash and the time at which they heard the report, calculated the speed to be 1,118.152 feet (340.8m) per second. Gay-Lussac, Humboldt and Bouvard were at Montlhery. Arago, Mathieu and Prony were at Villejuif. From Science for All by Robert Brown. (London, c1880). This giclée print offers beautiful color accuracy on a high-quality paper (235 gsm) that is a great option for framing with its smooth, acid free surface. Giclée (French for “to spray”) is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are sprayed onto the paper’s surface creating natural color transitions.
