The reaction of a substance with water resulting in an increase in concentration of hydrogen ions in solution (see acid).

CHEMICAL CLEANING

Using a solvent solution to remove mill scale and corrosion products.

SUPERSATURATED SOLUTION

A solution of a salt or mineral with a concentration beyond the normal saturation point.

DYNAMIC SYSTEM

An ion-exchange operation, wherein a flow of the solution to be treated is involved.

FORCE PUMP

A device used to inject a solution into a closed system through an opening such as a drain valve.

ELECTROLYSIS

DISSOLVED GASES

Those gases that enter into solution with a fluid and are neither free nor entrained gases.

LIQUID COMPASS

A magnetic compass of which the bowl mounting the compass card is completely filled with liquid. Nearly all modern magnetic compasses are of this type. An older liquid compass using a solution of alcohol and water is sometimes called a SPIRIT COMPASS. Also called WET COMPASS.

ALTITUDE AZIMUTH

An azimuth determined by solution of the naviga- tional triangle with altitude, declination, and latitude given. A time azimuth is computed with meridian angle, declination, and latitude given. A time and altitude azimuth is computed with meridian angle, declination, and altitude given

ASSUMED POSITION

A point at which a craft is assumed to be located, particularly one used as a preliminary to establishing certain navigational data, as that point on the surface of the earth for which the computed altitude is determined in the solution of a celestial observation, also called CHOSEN POSITION.
