By Thomas Clerk Maxwell
Language: English




The most influential Scottish scientist for 20th century in Physics, James Clerk Maxwell (1831–1879) was a pioneer of science, demonstrating that electricity, magnetism and light are all manifestations of the same phenomenon: the electromagnetic field. 

This book is a re-print of the original 1st edition (1878) of the 2nd volume, with 484 pages and dimensions 16x22,5 cm, an important foundation work on modern physics, a must-have for all mathematicians and physicists for their libraries even in the 21st century. Describes electrostatic phenomena and develops a mathematical theory of electricity. Topics include electrical work and energy in a system of conductors, mechanical action between two electrical systems, spherical harmonics, electric current, conduction and resistance, electrolysis, and other subjects, with illustrations and the original “plates” Maxwell draw.
