CHAP. IV. Of Mechanical Operations for Division of Bodies. SECT. I. Of Trituration, Levigation, and Pulverization. These are, properly speaking, only preliminary mechanical operations for dividing and separating the particles of bodies, and reducing them into very fine powder.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
