ELEMENTARY NATURAL PHILOSOPHY:
BEING THE PROPOSITIONS IN
MECHANICS AND HYDROSTATICS
IN WHICH THOSE PERSONS WHO ARE NOT CANDIDATES FOR HONOURS ARE
EXAMINED FOR THE DEGREE OF B.A.
ORIGINALLY COMPILED BY
J. C. SNOWBALL, M.A.
LATE FELLOW OF ST. JOHN'S COLLEGE, CAMBRIDGE.
FIFTH EDITION, REVISED AND ENLARGED,
AND ADAPTED FOR THE MIDDLE CLASS EXAMINATIONS.
THOMAS LUND, B.D.
LATE FELLOW AND LECTURER OF ST. JOHN'S COLLEGE,
EDITOR OF WOOD'S ALGEBRA, &c.
Cambridge and London.
The following work, originally compiled, at my suggestion, by the late Dr Snowball, has been unconditionally transferred to me by his Executors; and I have therefore not hesitated to re-write certain portions of it, and to make such alterations throughout as I conceived necessary. At the end of each chapter I have added a series of easy questions for the exercise of the Student. I have also carefully looked through all the papers of the University Examinations for the last ten years; and have printed a Collection of the best of the Problems, with their Solutions, as well as a large number of others with Answers only.
I am disposed to hope that the work, as it now appears, will be found suited to the wants, not only of University Students, but also of many others who require a short course of Mechanics and Hydrostatics, and especially of the Candidates at our Middle-Class Examinations.
