By directing a blast of air from a very thin nozzle on to the vibrating wire of a piano, the sound emitted may be very greatly intensified; and although naturally the decreasing amplitude of the vibration may in itself tend to create a diminuendo, yet it is possible to make up for this in some degree by causing the air-blast to ...

Attach this by means of a cork to the nozzle of an ordinary Mohr's burette, b, preferably fitted with a glass stopcock, and filled previously with the diluted urine.
