test bottle after the cream test is
completed. The alcohol floats in the
top and changes its concave surface
to nearly a straight line. As the use
of the alcohol dissolves the fat, there

can be overcome by first adding to
the alcohol all the fat lt will dissolve
and then pouring a small quantity of
this fat-saturated alcohol on the top
of the fat column in the test botle.

point to which it is read.
In bottle No. 2 the alcohol makes
a straight line at the top of the fat
column, so that the test can be reaa
