Summary
  • Describes the life and accomplishments of the scientist who invented the match and whom "Boyle's law" is named for
  • Robert Boyle, the favorite son of the wealthiest man in England and Ireland, could have lived a life of luxury. Instead he committed himself to advancing scientific knowledge and to helping lay the foundation of modern chemistry. Boyle used his wealth to help found the Royal Society, the first state-chartered scientific organization, and to build an elaborate laboratory in which he performed many important experiments in chemistry and physics.--From publisher description
