Puts the work of Guillaume Amontons in the context of chemical and physical investigations during the late 17th and early 18th century. Highlights his contributions to what we now call thermodynamics and emphasizes that he came to his theoretical conclusions while working on very practical problems (e.g. accurately measuring weather conditions on board of a marine vessel).
