Untersuchungen über die Druckkräfte des Lichtes. SS. (433)-458. In: Annalen der Physik, Band 6.
Leipzig Barth 1901 - (22 x 14,5 cm). VIII, 876 S. Mit 2 gefalteten Tafeln. Moderner Halbleinwandband im Stil der Zeit. Erste Ausgabe. - "As early as 1891 Lebedev became seriously interested in the pressure of light. He turned his attention to the fact that since the force of gravity is proportional to the volume of a body whereas light pressure must be proportional to its surface, it may be asserted that in a particle of cosmic dust the forces of light pressure pushing the particle away from the sun will be equals to the force of gravity attracting it toward the sun. Lebedev used this theory to explain why comets' tails always point away from the sun. His hypothesis was considered correct until the discovery of the solar wind, which creates substantially greater pressure than the sun's light. Around 1898, Lebedev began experimental research on light pressure. Although its presence had been predicted by Maxwell's theory, it had not been detected experimentally before Lebedev. He first undertook research on the pressure of light on solid bodies. By extremely ingenious methods Lebedev succeeded in completely eliminating these side effects and not only detected the pressure of light but also measured it and showed the correctness of Maxwell's quantitative theory. 'Opytnoe issledovanie svetovogo davlenia' ('An Experimental Investigation of the Pressure of Light') was read by Lebedev at the International Congress of Physicists at Paris in 1899 and was published in 1901" (DSB). - Titel verso gestempelt, sonst sehr sauber und wohlerhalten. - DSB 8, 106 [Attributes: First Edition]
