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.
