A kinetic theory of gases and liquids

A kinetic theory of gases and liquids

The main object of this book is to formulate a Kinetic Theory of certain properties of matter, which shall apply equally well to matter in any state. The book has also been brought up to date in matters not connected with molecular collision, and has been treated in a way so that the results are connected as directly as possible with the results of experiment.
