Abstract

Acceptance of the kinetic theory of gases was the entrance to the development of the concepts that presently explain the structure of matter. The basic ideas of the Greek philosophers remained dormant for several centuries until Euler, Bernoulli, Herapath, Waterston, Clausius, and Maxwell, injected a sounder physical picture that led to our actual understanding of the structure of a gas.
