Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: This volume reproduces the celebrated scientist's doctoral thesis, in which she proved beyond all doubt that radium is a chemical element. This work served as the prelude to Marie Curie's receipt of the 1903 Nobel Prize in physics, which she shared with her husband, Pierre Curie, and her mentor, Henri Becquerel. Here, Curie describes her methods of investigation and their results: establishing the atomic character of the radioactivity found in the compounds of uranium and thorium; the extraction from pitchblende of polonium and radium; the isolation of pure radium chloride; and the determination of the accurate atomic weight of radium. She also discusses her experimentation with the electric, photographic, luminous, heat, and color effects of radioactivity. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
Inhaltsangabe: In 1911, Marie Curie received the Nobel prize in chemistry for isolating radium. This profound distinction literally cost the scientist her life, for she ultimately died from exposure to the deadly rays from the element she and her husband discovered. Here is her story, recounted in her own words, of the momentous discovery and her further investigation of radioactive substances. Born in Poland in 1867, Marie Sklodowska enrolled at the Sorbonne after the University of Warsaw refused her admission because of her gender. There she not only earned her master's degree and doctorate in physics but also became the first woman faculty member in the school's history. In this memoir, she recounts the struggles and triumphs of a life dedicated to the study of science, in a tale whose truth makes it more gripping and poignant than any fiction.
