Refrigeration: A Case Study of the Role of Science in Technological Development.
Phillips, Ross
Australian Science Teachers Journal, v40 n3 p42-46 Sep 1994

The refrigerator is used as an example of a device for which science offers an explanation of its workings, but this should not be seen as the reason why it exists. (15 references) (Author/MKR)
