|Cover page of the 1845 article "On the Mechanical Equivalent of Heat" by English physicist James Joule.|
In the following years, Joule expanded on his work, via more precise experiments, and published the definitive form of his "On the Mechanical Equivalent of Heat", in nineteen pages, in the transactions of the Philosophical Society of London.
