 SmithsonianPhysical Tables
 Ninth Revised Edition
Prepared byWILLIAM ELMER FORSYTHE
 
Norwich, New York

PREFACE TO
THE
NINTH REVISED EDITIONThis edition of the Smithsonian Physical Tables consists of 901 tables giv-ing data of general interest to scientists and engineers, and of particular inter-est to those concerned with physics in its broader sense. The increase in sizeover the Eighth Edition is due largely to new data on the subject of atomicphysics. The tables have been prepared and arranged
so
as to be convenientand easy to use. The index has been extended. Each set of data given hereinhas been selected from the best sources available. Whenever possible an expertin each field has been consulted. This has entailed a great deal
of
correspond-ence with many scientists, and it is a pleasure to add that, almost withoutexception, all cooperated generously.When work first started on this edition, Dr.
E.
U.
Condon, then director ofthe National Bureau
of
Standards, kindly consented to furnish any assistancethat the scientists of that institution were able to give. The extent of this helpcan be noted from an inspection of the book. Dr. Wallace R. Brode, associatedirector, National Bureau of Standards, gave valuable advice and constructivecriticism as to the arrangement
of
the tables.
D.
H.
Menzel and Edith Jenssen Tebo, Harvard University, Department
of
Astronomy, collected and arranged practically all the tables on astronomy.
A
number of experts prepared and arranged groups of related data, andothers either prepared one or two tables or furnished all or part of the datafor certain tables. Care has been taken in each case to give the names of thoseresponsible for both the data and the selection of it.
A
portion of the data wastaken from other published sources, always with the.consent and approval ofthe author and publisher of the tables consulted. Due credit has been given inall instances. Very old references have been omitted. Anyone in need of theseshould refer to the Eighth Edition.It was our intention to mention in this preface the names of all who took partin the work, but the list proved too long for the space available. We wish,however, to express our appreciation and thanks to all the men and womenfrom various laboratories and institutions who have been
so
helpful in con-tributing to this Ninth Edition.Finally, we shall be grateful for criticism, the notification of errors, andnew data for use in reprints or a new edition.Astrophysical ObservatorySmithsonian InstitutionJanuary 1951W.
