"A method for determination of the evaporation rate of zinc using a continuous recording balance has been devised. Tests were carried out under an inert gas over the range 600°C to 750°C with a total pressure of 1 atmosphere. It was found that the rate of evaporation doubled with an increase of 50°C in this range. Scanning electron microscope photographs show the crystalline nature of the condensate and the presence of a thin oxide layer on some solidified test samples. This oxide layer reduced the rate of evaporation by retarding the zinc vapor escape from the evaporating surface"--Abstract, Page iii.
