    Post deposition of scale

    Hi,

    I wonder to know what it means? "deposition of scale"

    In the below sentence note it:

    His experiments, although plagued by deposition of scale on the heating element, gave the first quantitative data...

    Thanks

    And as for 'deposition'. it's just a fancy word for 'depositing'. A plumber would just say 'scale build-up'.
