This wire was then dipped into the following: (1) "Moment" rubber glue; (2) bone glue, which had been melted in the thermostatic water bath; (3) humidified superphosphate Ca [([H.sub.2]P[O.sub.4]).sub.2], which was mixed with the melted bone glue in the proportion of 50:50; (4) a mixture in which three-quarters of the volume was CaC[O.sub.3] + Ca [([H.sub.2]P[O.sub.4]).sub.2] and one-quarter was melted bone glue; (5) a mixture in which three-quarters of the volume was melted bone glue and one-quarter was "Moment" rubber glue.
The initial resistance of the water heater with the stainless steel sheath was 6.3 ohms; after the sheath was coated with a 0.5-mm-thick layer of bone glue, resistance in the sheath decreased to zero at room temperature.
Thinning the layer of bone glue to a thickness of 0.05 mm caused the resistance in the sheath to increase to 4.5 ohms.
When the nichrome wire was covered with bone glue, the difference between the initial electrical resistance in the nichrome wires and the resistance after coating was as follows: t (11) = 2.32; df = 10;p = 0.043.
