How, then, will the water of streams differ at these times in turbidity and in the relative amount of solids carried in solution?
If the turbidity is owing to the urate it will disappear; if to chyle it will remain.
He (1948:27) stated that color in tadpoles from different localities probably varies with soil color and turbidity of water.
Hydrochloric acid added to a clear solution, after some time, causes a turbidity and odour of sulphurous anhydride.
The turbidity is due to the presence of solid water and solid carbonic acid.
Fatty acids are detected by the turbidity they produce when the diluted glycerine is acidified.
Flow was reduced or entirely interrupted and turbidity was lessened.
The turbidity of orthoclase is usually due to partial kaolinization.
Oxalate of potash should give no turbidity to an ammoniacal solution of this acid.
Other environmental factors that may have selective influence in this species are rate of current, volume of flow, and turbidity.
1620s, from Latin turbidus "muddy, full of confusion," from turbare "to confuse, bewilder," from turba "turmoil, crowd," probably from Greek tyrbe "turmoil."
