2.3.1 Thermodynamics and entropy

The first half of the nineteenth century was a period of great economic and industrial growth. The steam engine, invented in the previous century, was becoming increasingly common in locomotives, mines and factories; power was becoming available on demand. A major priority for engineers was to produce more efficient engines, in order to deliver more useful power for less expenditure on fuel. Thermodynamics emerged as a study of the basic principles determining energy flows and the effi

2 Dividing in your head

To divide one number into another without using a calculator you need to know basic multiplications up to 10. This means that you need to know, by heart, what result you get if you multiply (times) any number up to 10 by any other number up to 10. For example you have to remember that 9 multiplied by 6 is 54, or 4 multiplied by 5 is 20, and so on.

If you are confident that you know the basic multiplications up to 10, just carry on with the rest of this course. If you are unsure, or woul

4 The leading figures of the Scottish Enlightenment

At this point, before we move on to look in greater detail at the work of a couple of characteristic and influential Scottish scientists, it will be useful to stand back and take a survey of the leading members of the scientific and medical community.

One of its most eminent members, Adam Smith, pioneered the discipline of economics, which is not customarily included within science today. But to exclude him from our survey would be to misrepresent the unfenced, boundary-free territory a

2.1.1 Where did the attempt to define notions of rights internationally come from?

To some extent, this ideology of rights was new because it was expressed at the international level with new vigour, with the horrors of the Second World War and the calculated extermination of Jews, gypsies and others in mind.
