An Analysis of Joule’s Experiments on the Expansion of Air [with A. P. Hatton] [1956e]
In 1845 Joule published one of his most famous papers entitled ‘On the Changes of Temperature produced by the Rarefaction and Condensation of Air’.1 A number of experiments were described in this paper, but it would be generally agreed that the most important is that which was used to show “that no change of temperature occurs when air is allowed to expand in such a manner as not to develop mechanical power”.2
