@thefalconermuseum On this day in 1820.....
William John Macquorn Rankine, FRSE FRS (5 July 1820 – 24 December 1872) was a Scottish mechanical engineer who also contributed to civil engineering, physics and mathematics. He was a founding contributor, with Rudolf Clausius and William Thomson (Lord Kelvin), to the science of thermodynamics, particularly focusing on the first of the three thermodynamic laws.
One of the many Scottish engineers and scientists that have changed the world!
