The situation reminds one indeed of the process which mathematicians call mapping. In choosing this process to illustrate the meaning of physical explanation I am fully conscious of the inadequacy of the use of pictures to represent abstract facts.

Again let us look to the kinetic theory for elucidation. To be more specific, let us consider a gas. Under certain controllable conditions it rises in temperature, that is, a change occurs that can be measured. " If the gas be enclosed in a vessel, another phenomenon may be observed and measured at the same time: that of increase in pressure.

The explanatory symbols, by their very reason for existence, must preserve the relatedness of the two events which nature obscures.
