The Phase Law, in Connection with a Recent Book of Wilder D. Bancroft

Part of the Boston Studies in the Philosophy of Science book series (BSPS, volume 223)

Abstract

When following the march of natural philosophy during the second half of our century; when looking among the never-ending discoveries, sometimes more dazzling than important, to disentangle the laws according to which our conception of the external world evolves, a part of this history of science soon presents itself as worthy of very particular attention. I wish to speak about the history of the relation between thermodynamics and kinetic theories.

    It seems that Malaguti Annales de Chimie et de Physique, 3rd. series, volume LI, p. 328, 1857 was the first to consider a chemical equilibrium as the effect of two inverse, equally fast, reactions. The idea expressed by Malaguti received little comment. It has not influenced the development of kinetic doctrines in chemistry.Google Scholar
