Excerpt from Familiar Lectures on Scientific Subjects No apology will be considered necessary for re producing the little piece On the Absorption of Light, the thirteenth in order of this collection. Though it does not pretend to anticipate any of the later experimental researches, and the reason ings grounded on them for concluding the con version of motion into heat, electricity, and mag netism, - it is, nevertheless, a step (though a small one) in that direction, by showing that a state of apparent rest in a material body is not incom patible with the internal propagation ad z fzfim z um within it of movement impressed on it from with out. It is very conceivable that the internal or atomic organization of ponderable matter may be such as to concentrate and localize, in its individual molecular groups, the broken-up and dispersed undulations caused by any external shock; and so preserve them from attaining that final state of complete mutual counteraction which is there contemplated.
