From this perspective, I re-evaluate recent interpretations of Perrin provided by Stathis Psillos, Peter Achinstein, Alan Chalmers, and Bas van Fraassen, all of whom read Perrin as a robustness reasoner, though not necessarily in the same sort of way. To conclude, I provide an alternative and more productive understanding of the basis of the dispute between realists and anti-realists. Most users should sign in with their email address.

Brownian motion - Science Experiment

Compendium of Quantum Physics pp Cite as. Brownian motion is the irregular and perpetual agitation of small particles suspended in a liquid or gas. In the Scottish botanist Robert Brown published the first extensive study of the phenomenon. Brown showed notably that this motion equally affects organic and inorganic particles, suggesting a physical rather than a biological explanation [1]. Developments in thermodynamics and the kinetic theory in the second half of the nineteenth century led several scientists to consider Brownian motion as a visible consequence of thermal molecular agitation; but it was not until the early twentieth century that a convincing quantitative description and theoretical explanation of the motion was worked out.
