Description:

This essay by David Cassiday presents the disagreements among physicists at the end of the 19th century over the existence of atoms and the apparent disagreement between mechanics and thermodynamics. Cassiday describes Einstein's prediction of the characteristics of Brownian motion and how this work brought about the acceptance of atomic theory.
