|Title||Unpublished paper, 'On certain properties of vapor' by Dionysius Lardner|
|Description||Lardner argues that aqueous vapour will not be restored to a liquid state under compression, and that the only way to restore a vapour to a liquid is by removing heat from the vapour. He considers permanents gases to be vapours with a large amount of redundant heat.|
