Description: People have always understood that something flows from hot objects to
cold ones. We call that flow heat. Scientists of the late eighteenth century
finally decided that all bodies must contain an invisible fluid which they
called caloric. Caloric was assigned a variety of properties, some of which
proved to be inconsistent with nature—for example, caloric had weight
and could not be created or eliminated. But the most important property
was that caloric flowed from hot bodies into cold ones. Caloric provided
a very useful way to think about heat.
The book is meant for juniors, seniors, and first-year graduate students.
We also want it to be of use to those who choose to learn the subject on
their own, and to practicing engineers who use it as a reference. Whether
one studies alone or with a class, learning means posing, then answering,
one’s own questions.
