Σελίδα 35 - Every body continues in its state of rest or of uniform motion in a straight line, except in so far as it may be compelled by impressed forces to change that state.
Σελίδα 38 - Newton generalized the law of attraction into a statement that every particle of matter in the universe attracts every other particle with a force which varies directly as the product of their masses and inversely as the square of the distance between them; and he thence deduced the law of attraction for spherical shells of constant density.
Σελίδα 51 - If any number of forces, acting on a particle, be represented, in magnitude and direction, by the sides of a polygon, taken in order, the forces shall be in equilibrium.
Σελίδα 45 - Work done on any system of bodies has its equivalent in the form of work done against friction, molecular forces, or gravity, if there be no acceleration ; but, if there be acceleration, part of the work is expended in overcoming resistance to acceleration, and the additional kinetic energy developed is equivalent to the work so spent.
Σελίδα 135 - A balloon is carried along by a current of air moving from east to west at the rate of 60 miles an hour, having no motion of its own through the air, and a feather is dropped from the balloon. What sort of a path will it appear to describe, as seen by a man in the balloon?— (Matric., June 1874.) CHAPTER II.
Σελίδα 12 - If three forces, acting at a point, can be represented in magnitude and direction by the sides of a triangle, taken in order, they will be in equilibrium.
Σελίδα 71 - Prove that the algebraic sum of the moments of two concurrent forces about any point in their plane is equal to the moment of their resultant about the same point.
Σελίδα 67 - The moment of a force about a point is the product of the force and the perpendicular distance from the line of action of the force to the point.
Σελίδα 33 - The work done by a force acting obliquely on a mooing body is measured by the product of the force and the distance through which the body moves in the direction of the force.
Σελίδα 37 - Change of motion is proportional to the impressed force and takes place in the direction of the straight line in which the force acts.
