Preface to the Third Edition
Preface to the Third EditionWhen I feel a gentle breeze cool against my skin, I think about the sun causing uneven heating of the earth's surface. Hot air rises; cool air rushes into the area of lower air density. Thus the wind.When I see a sparkling stream cascading in silver bubbles over rounded pebbles, my thoughts drift to converting potential energy to kinetic energy. Our visit to the lovely wine country of the Sonoma Valley awoke within me memories of the early days of spirit distillation.A wax candle was burning in a remote church we visited in England. How many candles would be burned to heat the air in the church by 10°F? Knowing the heat of combustion of wax and the specific heat of air, I could and did calculate that 68 candles would be consumed.
