  7. In naming the method, it is probably undesirable to try to be more specific; but in an account of a research, as in articles in periodicals, writers should leave no uncertainty about the kind of apparatus used and the conditions of use. Thus, visual spectrophotometric observations, with a wide spectral band, may be seriously in error, especially in the red and violet regions.
