The Effect of Temperature
Pp. 50-55 (6)
Since the features of macroscopic processes derive from the microscopic
behaviour of the system’s constituent particles, it is shown that temperature, which
appears to us as a simple property of macroscopic bodies, is indeed a complex effect of
the movement of the body’s particles.
