Abstract: For purposes of study it has been found convenient to divide natural phenomena into two broad classes: one consists of changes of an apparently permanent nature involving the transformation of one form of matter into another, while in the second are included temporary changes, generally resulting from an alternation of external conditions. It is the study of the phenomena in these two categories which constitute the sciences of chemistry and physics, respectively. The distinction between these aspects of the study of nature may be indicated in another way: chemistry may be said to deal with matter and its transformtions, whreas physics is concerned with energy and its transformations. It is clearly not possible to draw a sharp distinction between the two points of view, for many problems in both physics and chemistry are concerned with interactions between energy and matter; it is these problems which constitute the fundamental basis of the subject of physical chemistry.

Faraday's nomenclature

The phenomena associated with electrolysis were studied by M. Faraday (1832-33), and the nomenclature which he used, and which is still employed, was devised for him by W. Whewell. .. Faraday assumed the flow of electricity to be associated with the movement of charged particles ..; these were called ions (Greek: wanderer).
