Abstract : Enumeration of three advantages of the deciBoyle system: measurement of absolute pressure where the unit step in the scale, one Boyle, is the logarithm to the base 10 of the pressure in bars. (1) The scale encompasses the range from the smallest to the greatest. (2) The scale centers around a convenient and absolute reference standard, approximately one standard atmosphere. (3) The numeric expresses in its units place the accuracy attributable to the majority of pressure designations (i.e. = 12%) that lie outside the range of the simple barometric column or the McLeod gage.
