Braucheimer Release Cap

Braucheimer Release Cap: ”


The ”’Braucheimer Release Cap”’ is an apparatus invented by German physicist Erwin Braucheimer. Braucheimer was best known for his contributions to the development of the Avagadro Hypothesis. His experiments in finding the molar mass of gases. He created this device to faciliate the experiment and to minimize errors. The Braucheimer Release Cap has been used in experiments conducted by chemists such as [[Joseph Louis Gay-Lussac]] and [[John Dalton]]. Braucheimer and Avagadro were involved in a rivalry throughout their scientific careers, but Braucheimer’s untimely death, in 1818, quickly ended the [[feud]], and Avagadro received credit for Avagadro’s Hypothesis. Some believe this credit is undeserved and Avagadro’s credibility is under review today.
