A biography and life work of amadeo avogadro an italian philosopher
Despite the fact that infollowing the footsteps of his father, he studies the laws, he continues to show a keen interest in mathematics and physics.
Today, Avogadro is considered an important early figure in atomic theory. This book influenced Michael Faraday's great career of discovery. All rights reserved.
Amedeo avogadro atomic theory
In , he published, "Considerations on which the state of non-conducting matter must be, when interposed between two surfaces endued with opposite electricities. In , Avogadro published a memoria about gas densities, and in he became the first chair of mathematical physics at the University of Turin. Published works During the life of Avogadro, many of his works managed to see the light. Leicester and Herbert S. His early works were scientific notes on the topic of electricity, the specific heat of substances, the expansion of liquid by heating, etc. Avogadro will work at the university until, in , he leaves his scientific works. Gay-Lussac is best remembered for his eponymous gas pressure-temperature law. Avogadro believed that particles could be composed of molecules and that molecules could be composed of still simpler units which we now call "atoms". As a result, he lost his chair in or, as the university officially declared, it was "very glad to allow this interesting scientist to take a rest from heavy teaching duties, in order to be able to give better attention to his researches". He also provided empirical evidence by calculating the molecular atomic weights of various substances.
He died on July 9, Thinking of water as a structureless fluid and the sugar molecules as small hard spheres, Einstein was able to find not only the size of the sugar molecules but also a value for Avogadro's number.
His training begins at the age of 13 years, and at the age of 16 successfully graduates from school.
This task was first accomplished by the physicist Joseph Loschmidt.
