Trattato di Fisico-Chimica secondo la Teoria Dinamica

Article metrics

Abstract

THIS is an elementary treatise from the hand of the late Prof. Mombello, of the Free University of Perugia. In the general nature of its contents it might be compared to Prof. Ostwald's Allgemeine Chemie. It is, however, much smaller; and is indeed less of a systematic treatise than a condensed statement of the many principles and laws on which physics and chemistry are built. The English terms physics and chemistry have, under the influence of our examination systems, become so stereotyped in meaning that neither term could fitly describe the character of this Trattato di Fisico-Chimica. The time-honoured division of subjects would ill fit into its plan. Dynamics, properties of matter, heat, light, sound, electricity, and magnetism are certainly all treated in their more theoretical aspects; but there are also introduced the laws of chemical combination and the atomic theory, which give the book a character possessed by none of our English treatises on physics. A brief sketch of its character may not then be wholly valueless.
