History of Diffusion

  • R. E. Cunningham
  • R. J. J. Williams

Abstract

It is unusual for a book dealing with the present state of knowledge in a field of physical science to give a detailed historical analysis of the subject. But anyone undertaking a detailed study of diffusion in gases will find that some discoveries which are assumed to have been made recently were, in fact, made at the beginning of the nineteenth century, and further that some laws, experimentally verified more than a century ago, have remained in obscurity.
