Abstract

In 1904 Longmans, Green & Co., published Mellor’s Chemical Statics and Dynamics, which was part of Ramsay’s Physical Chemistry series. Mellor hoped that this ‘Introduction’ (as he termed the book) ‘will enable the neophyte, without mathematical knowledge, to see his way through the ideas involved; and he can take the mathematical operations on trust just as he would if I were to state that 81 is the cube root of 531441.’ Sir William Ramsay was a Scottish chemist who discovered the noble gases (Helium, neon, argon, krypton, xenon, and radon) and received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1904. His ground-breaking work led to the development of a new section of the periodic table.
