An Essay on the Cohesion of Fluids. Read December 20, 1804.


(London, W. Bulmer and Co., 1805). 4to. No wrappers as extracted from "Philosophical Transactions" 1805 - Part I. Pp. 67-87. Clean and fine, wide-margined.. ¶ First appearance of an importent paper in fluid mechanics. Young's most importent contributions is in the theory of light. He promoted the undulatory theory of Huygens and showed how new experimental phenomena could be explained by the wave theory of light.

In this paper Young's principal objects are to reduce the phenomena of capillary action of fluids to the general law of an equable tension of their surfaces, - to investigate the propeties of the curves resulting from this law, - to determine the magnitude of the apparent adhesion of solids to fluids, and the cohesion of moistered solids, and to show in what manner the law itself is probably derived from the fundamental properties of matter. The attractions and repulsions of floating bodies are found to vary ultimately in the inverse ratio of squares of distances. (Abstracts of Papers printed in the Phil. Transactions).
