Faraday, Maxwell, and Kelvin by D. K. C MacDonald( Book )

24 editions published between 1964 and 1966 in English and Spanish and held by 1,052 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 )

6 editions published between 1961 and 1965 in English and held by 692 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
