Abstract

THE support of the University of Manchester and the British Society for the History of Science has been secured for the arrangement of a small museum to commemorate the work of James Prescott Joule, the discoverer of the Law of Conservation of Energy. Besides showing various original instruments and documents which belonged to Joule, it is planned to display reconstructions of the main apparatus used by him in his investigations, and other inaterial illustrating the early history of the discovery.
