The article presents information on an experiment for ascertaining what effect a change of barometrical pressure will have upon the flashing point of refined petroleum. It is stated that the flashing point is lowered by 2 degrees Fahrenheit for each inch of diminished pressure. Each inch corresponds to about 100 feet of elevation, for every thousand feet that petroleum is carried above sea level the flashing point will be lowered by 2 degrees Fahrenheit.
