Erste Ausgabe. "Clausius later gave more careful scruting to Maxwell's arguments and found an error that Maxwell was to admit as far more serious. In his initial approach to the conduction of heat in gases, Maxwell drew a brilliant analogy between diffusion (a transfer of mass) and conduction (a transfer of kinetic energy), thereby making it possible to use the form of his diffusion equation to represent conduction, simply replacing the mass of a molecule with its kinetic energy. Clausius criticized this adoption of the diffusion equation, because, given the assumptions, mass transfer would accompany the heat conduction and the process would not be one of energy transfer alone. He then offered a revised theory of conduction" (DSB). - Stempel auf Titel. Vorsätze etwas leimschattig. Rücken gering fleckig, sonst sauber und wohlerhalten
