However, he finally had made it: Since a couple of years, or, to be more precise, since the year 1793, he finally had a position as a lecturer of Mathematics and Natural Philosophy in the New Col-lege of Manchester
Joule and energy Listen The formulation of the mechanical equivalent of heat can be taken as a crucial step towards the formulation of the principle of energy conservation. Joule demonstrated in a series of experiments that mechanical work (which he still called 'mechanical force') can be converted at a constant ratio into heat. Story n° 1. This story adresses the necessity of careful experimenting in the process of generating new scientific knowledge. The hard work of experimenting: James Prescott Joule and the mechanical
