Viole's Standard of Illuminating Power
A standard authorized by the International Congress of 1881. It is the light given by one square centimeter of platinum, melted, but just at the point of solidification. It is equal to 20 English standard candles almost exactly. It has not been very widely accepted, the tendency among photometrists being to adhere to the old standards, carcel or candle. It is obvious that actual use of the Viole would be very inconvenient and would involve expensive apparatus, difficult to work with. Synonym--Viole.
