The following are quotes:
- “We tacitly assume in our demonstration, that when a body [working body] has experienced any changes, and when after a certain number of transformations it returns to precisely its ‘original state’ [Lavoisier, 1783], that is, to the state considered in respect to density, to temperature, to mode of aggregation [atomic order]—let us suppose, I say, that this body is found to contain the same quantity of heat that it contained at first.”
