Revisiting Lebedev’s one-century old experiment – Scientific Reports

As Lebedev reported, the endothermic effect of borosilicate crown glasses is in the temperature region from 550 to 610 °C. The highest heating temperature in the Lebedev’s experiments is 700 °C. This is much lower than 1200 °C, where endothermic effect of silica glass can be observed. This is why Lebedev did not find the endothermic effect of …
