On This Day – September 05 : Austrian physicist Ludwig Eduard Boltzmann died on this day in 1906

Description

He was best known for his kinetic theory of gas particles. His statistical methods explained how properties of atoms could predict the visible properties such as thermal conductivity and diffusion. This helped to bridge the gap between the thermodynamics of a large system and at a molecular level.
