Σελίδα 25 - The circumference of every circle is supposed to be divided into 360 equal parts, called degrees ; each degree into 60 equal parts, called minutes ; and each minute into 60 equal parts, called seconds.
Σελίδα 6 - And if the given number be a proper vulgar fraction ; subtract the logarithm of the denominator from the logarithm of the numerator, and the remainder will be the logarithm sought ; which, being that of a decimal fraction, must always have a negative index.
Σελίδα xxvi - A New Treatise on the Use of the Globes; or, a Philosophical View of the Earth and Heavens : comprehending an Account of the Figure, Magnitude, and Motion of the Earth : with the Natural Changes of its Surface, caused by Floods, Earthquakes, Ac.
Σελίδα 32 - The CO-SINE of an arc is the sine of the complement of that arc as L.
Σελίδα 31 - The sine, or right sine, of an arc, is the line drawn from one extremity of the arc, perpendicular to the diameter passing through the other extremity. Thus, BF is the sine of the arc AB, or of the arc BDE.
Σελίδα 242 - The HORIZON is a great circle which separates the visible half of the heavens from the invisible ; the earth being considered as a point in the centre of the sphere of the fixed stars.
Σελίδα 242 - ... ZENITH DISTANCE of any celestial object is the arc of a vertical circle, contained between the centre of that object and the zenith ; or it is what the altitude of the object wants of 90 degrees.
Σελίδα 199 - The sum of the two sides of a triangle is to their difference as the tangent of half the sum of the angles at the base is to the tangent of half their difference.
