But Sir William Thompson has enunciated the principle : " It is impossible, by means of inanimate material agency,...temperature of the coldest of the surrounding objects.'' 3 This principle is not correct, as stated, except as it implies the existence of certain conditions...

...we have taken this notice, gives the above not very evident axiom in the more convincing furin : " It is impossible, by means of inanimate material agency,...temperature of the coldest of the surrounding objects*" Carnot showed that, on his principles, the amount of work done by transference of a given amount of...

...have taken this notice, assumed instead of the above rather dubious axiom the more convincing one: ' It is impossible, by means of inanimate material agency,...temperature of the coldest of the surrounding objects' In fact, we see by § 26 that, if we make N transfer back to the source a quantity of heat equal to...

...from one body to another at a higher temperature. Thomson gives it a slightly different form : — It is impossible, by means of inanimate material agency,...temperature of the coldest of the surrounding objects. By comparing together these statements, the student will be able to make himself master of the fact...
