THE WORLD OF ATOM by Boorse

PART III – THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE KINETIC THEORY OF MATTER

Chapter 14: Atoms in Motion – John Herapath (1790 – 1868)
Gas heats up on sudden compression and cools down on sudden expansion because of change in velocity of the particles.

Chapter 15: “Active Molecules” – Brownian Motion – Robert Brown (1773 – 1858)
Particles have a primitive form of life as they have intrinsic motion. 

Chapter 16: The Tragedy of a Genius – John James Waterston (1811 – 1883)
Under equal pressure and volume, the root mean square velocity is inversely proportional to mass density.

Chapter 17: The Conservation of Energy, The Mechanical Equivalent of Heat – James Preston Joule (1818 – 1889)
Energy changes form chemical to electrical to heat to mechanical, but energy is always conserved.

Chapter 18: The Range of Molecular Speeds in a Gas – James Clerk Maxwell (1831 – 1879)
A molecule has a range of speeds. Thus, its mass density may also have a range. Viscosity of a gas does not depend on its pressure. Thus, viscosity depends on the volume of the energy field around the point mass.

POSTULATE:
The atomic particles have intrinsic motion that is some function of their intrinsic mass or inertia.
