Measurement and the Discreteness of Matter: Evidence for Discreteness and the Extension of Molecular Motion in the Brownian Movement

Seth, Raghav


  • Jean Baptiste Perrin was awarded the 1926 Nobel Prize in Physics for his researches that 'put a definite end to the long struggle regarding the question of the physical reality of molecules.' The measurement of Avogadro's number is considered the central feature in this accomplishment. In 1908, Perrin measured Avogadro's number from experimental work on the Brownian movement. By 1913, he published... read more
