    The mathematical structure of statistical mechanics was established by the American physicist Josiah Willard Gibbs in his book Elementary Principles in Statistical Mechanics (), but two earlier physicists, James Clerk Maxwell of Great Britain and Ludwig E. Boltzmann of Austria, are generally credited with having developed the fundamental principles of the field with their work on. Josiah Willard Gibbs (Febru – Ap ) was a preeminent American engineer, theoretical physicist, and chemist noted for his famed publication of On the Equilibrium of Heterogeneous Substances, a graphical analysis of multi-phase chemical systems, which laid the basis for a large part of modern-day one of the greatest American scientists, he devised much of.

    Josiah Willard Gibbs, an American physical scientist, was born Feb. 11, His name is often unrecognized by the public, yet Gibbs was unarguably the greatest scientist America produced up through the end of the 19th century, and perhaps beyond. Josiah Willard Gibbs (Febru – Ap ) was an American scientist who made important theoretical contributions to physics, chemistry, and mathematics. His work on the applications of thermodynamics was instrumental in transforming physical chemistry into a rigorous deductive science.

Proceedings of the XVth International Congress of the History of Science, Edinburgh, AugustEdinburgh (), pp. Physical chemistry is the study of macroscopic, and particulate phenomena in chemical systems in terms of the principles, practices, and concepts of physics such as motion, energy, force, time, thermodynamics, quantum chemistry, statistical mechanics, analytical dynamics and chemical equilibrium.

Physical chemistry, in contrast to chemical physics, is predominantly (but not always) a. The Phase Rule This offprint from the Transactions of the Connecticut Academy of Sciences is Gibbs' statement of the phase rule, or the law that determines the number of physical states possible to a chemical system in equilibrium.

His contribution helped transform physical chemistry from an empirical to a deductive science. Gibbs's "Equilibrium" paper is considered one of the greatest achievements in physical science in the 19th century and one of the foundations of the science of physical chemistry.

In these papers Gibbs applied thermodynamics to the interpretation of physicochemical phenomena and showed the explanation and interrelationship of what had been. The other papers, forming a three-part series, pursue this project of putting the foundations of thermodynamics on a clearer and more secure basis.

This book will be of interest to scholars in history and philosophy of science, especially those interested in the development of physical chemistry and the work of Pierre Duhem. The effect of droplet size on surface tension is given theoretical consideration with the help of results of the Gibbs thermodynamic theory of capillarity and of previous results of the author as to the sign and magnitude of superficial densities.

It is concluded that surface tension can be expected to decrease with decrease in droplet size over a wide range of circumstances. Josiah Willard Gibbs (Febru – Ap ) was an American scientist who made important theoretical contributions to physics, chemistry, and mathematics.

G Donnan (Book). Josiah Willard Gibbs () was an American mathematical physicist whose work in statistical mechanics laid the basis for the development of physical chemistry as a science.

On ApAPS presented a plaque to the Yale physics department in his honor. Albert Einstein called him "the greatest mind in American history.".

When Josiah Willard Gibbs died ina European physicist described him as “the greatest synthetic philosopher since Newton.” And this was before scientists really understood the full importance of his work. Admirers have since given Gibbs’s name to a crater on the moon, a US Navy research vessel (now retired), and an annual medal honoring the world’s most eminent chemists.establishment of physical chemistry in Israel.
