the dynamical theory of gases J. H. Jeans. This scarce antiquarian book is a selection from Kessinger Publishings Legacy Reprint Series. Due to its age, it may contain imperfections such as marks, notations, marginalia and flawed pages. Because we believe this work is culturally important, we have made it available as part of our commitment to. Kinetic Theory, Volume 2: Irreversible Processes compiles the fundamental papers on the kinetic theory of gases. This book comprises the two papers by Maxwell and Boltzmann in which the basic equations for transport processes in gases are formulated, as well as the first derivation of Boltzmann's “H-theorem” and problem of irreversibility.

His most prominent achievement was to formulate a set of equations that describe electricity, magnetism, and optics as manifestations of the same phenomenon, namely the electromagnetic field/5.

Jeans's primary aim with the first edition of his book, originally published inwas to 'develop the theory of gases upon as exact a mathematical basis as possible'. Twenty years later and those theories were being revolutionised by Quantum Theory. In this fourth edition, Jeans does not attempt to avoid the discoveries of this topical Format: Paperback.

The theory is also applied to give an explanation of the Law of Equivalent Volumes, the conduction of heat through gases, the hydrodynamic equations of motion corrected for viscosity (Navier–Stokes equation), the relaxation of inequalities of pressure, and the final equilibrium of temperature in a column of gas under the influence of gravity.

First Edition. Maxwell's second paper on the kinetic theory of gases, following up on his "Illustrations of the dynamical theory of gases" (), in which Maxwell introduced the concept of describing actual physical processes by a statistical function-an "extraordinary novelty" (DSB) that marks the beginning of a new era in the history of physics.

The kinetic theory of gases is a historically significant, but simple, model of the thermodynamic behavior of gases, with which many principal concepts of thermodynamics were model describes a gas as a large number of identical submicroscopic particles (atoms or molecules), all of which are in constant, rapid, random size is assumed to be much smaller than the.

Abstract: In view of the current interest in the theory of gases proposed by Bernoulli (Selection 3), Joule, Krönig, Clausius (Selections 8 and 9) and others, a mathematical investigation of the laws of motion of a large number of small, hard, and perfectly elastic spheres acting on one another only during impact seems desirable.
