James Maxwell was an eminent Scottish scientist who made great contribution to the field of mathematical physics. He is accredited with propounding the classical theory of electromagnetic radiation. His theory brought together light, electricity and magnetism as manifestations of the same phenomenon for the first time. His thoughts and equations on electromagnetism are referred to as ‘second great unification in physics’. He is also known for his contribution in developing ‘Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution’ that is a statistical means of throwing light on various aspects of kinetic theory of gases. He was also the one who presented the first durable colour photograph in 1861.

Heat may be generated and destroyed by certain processes, and this shows that heat is not a substance.
The student who uses home made apparatus, which is always going wrong, often learns more than one who has the use of carefully adjusted instruments, to which he is apt to trust and which he dares not take to pieces.
