Reading Quiz #2 Philosophy of Science a.) When Kuhn claims of those studying physical optics before Newton that, “though the  field’s practitioners were scientists, the net result of their activity was something less than science” he means that all sciences going through a period of  new modeled sciences also  passes through a period that scientists eventually acquire common ideas, vocabulary, and  theories.  b.) Dufay reached the conclusion that there are two different types of electricity, electric  and non­electric, by rubbing two pieces of material together and seeing whether was an  attraction between the two or not. c.) One way in which luck played a role in grays investigation of electrical conduction  was when one night Gray noticed that when extending a cork with a small stick plugges  into the middle, a charge was visible at the end of the stick. While experimenting with  longer sticks and thread connected on an ivory ball, he discovered that “electric virtue”  will carry over distance, and that the ivory ball would act to attract light objects like it  were the electrified glass tube. Without his observances that night, he would have not  made this discovery.
