Σελίδα 158 - 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 128 - ... at the moment of obscuration, and for one or two seconds later, the field of the instrument was filled with bright lines. As far as could be judged, during this brief interval every non-atmospheric line of the visible spectrum showed bright, an interesting observation confirmed by Mr. Pye.
Σελίδα 45 - I suppose no one will hesitate to acknowledge that the whole of the country lying between the Hooghly on the west and the Meghna on the east is only the delta caused by the deposition of the debris carried down by the rivers Ganges and Brahmaputra, and their tributaries. It is also equally well known that in such flats the streams are constantly altering their courses, eating away on one bank and depositing on the other, until the channel in which they formerly flowed becomes choked up, and the water...
Σελίδα 235 - ... that, in order to meet the active competition of the business world, an Englishman should be willing to remove a haystack in order to find a needle, but that the lawyer must go beyond this point in diligence and actually remove a haystack in order to find out whether or not a needle is hidden under it.

As the tide recedes, they are penned in, but they fight most desperately to break through the net. The Andamanese now use spears, and but few, as a rule, escape. Their bows and arrows are used principally for shooting fish in shallow water. The upper two-thirds of the arrow is a hollow reed, the lower a piece of heavier wood, armed with a piece of iron or a nail. They throw stones with considerable...

Σελίδα 148 - NOTE IV. This theorem may be proved as follows : — Let S be any closed surface, containing no part of the electrified bodies within it, which we may conceive to be described between A and B ; let P be the component in the direction of the normal, of the resultant force at any point of the surface S, and let ds be an element of the surface at the same point. Then it may be easily proved (see Math.Journ.vol.
