It must ... be admitted that very simple relations ... exist between the volumes of gaseous substances and the numbers of simple or compound molecules which form them. The first hypothesis to present itself in this connection, and apparently even the only admissible one, is the supposition that the number of integral molecules in any gases is always the same for equal volumes, or always proportional to the volumes. Indeed, if we were to suppose that the number of molecules contained in a given volume were different for different gases, it would scarcely be possible to conceive that the law regulating the distance of molecules could give in all cases relations so simple as those which the facts just detailed compel us to acknowledge between the volume and the number of molecules.

How do you learn Chemistry? There are tons of chemistry books with aridly pedantic and tedious wording, but this book is everything but boring.
Science does not have to be very serious only to intimidate children. There are other ways to depict the beauty and the fun side of science.
Larry Gonick brought us a series of exciting scientific but cute reads conveying complex ideas and explanation on different topics.
