Gas Laws and Kinetic Theory
Kinetic Theory is one of the great achievements of classical physics. It not only enabled us to harness energy which greatly improved the quality of life and life expectancy, but it also laid the path of study to the microscopic world and quantum mechanics which has lead to lasers, magnetic resonance imaging, electronics, and the other advances of the 20th Century.
