Three men of varied interest are conspicuous among 19th c. scientists. Mr. Macdonald relates their backgrounds, personalities & contributions to science. Michael Faraday discovered & developed the practical relationships governing the interaction of electricity & magnetism that formed the cornerstone for the electrical industry as well as radio & television. James C. Maxwell formulated the fundamental mathematical description of Farady's lab work. Wm. Thompson (Lord Kelvin) extended Faraday's & Maxwell's works & contributed to our understanding of heat. He helped formulate the Second Law of Thermodynamics
Near zero : an introduction to low temperature physics by D. K. C MacDonald( Book )
5 editions published between 1961 and 1965 in English and held by 735 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Absolute Zero ( -273.15 degrees Centigrade) is a state that can never be reached. Nevertheless in cooling things close to Absolute Zero the modern physicist learns much about the nature of matter and energy. Within a few degrees of Absolute Zero resistance vanishes, helium becomes a liquid, and atomic activity falls into a sort of super-hibernation. Near Zero is an engaging and authoritative introduction to a field of ever-increasing value to the physicist and the chemist."--Back cover
