Σελίδα 12 - Multiplying or dividing both terms of a fraction by the same number does not change the value of the fraction.
Σελίδα 22 - Multiply as in whole numbers, and point off as many decimal places in the product as there are decimal places in the multiplicand and multiplier, supplying the deficiency, if any, by prefixing ciphers.
Σελίδα 122 - Measures of Length 10 millimeters (mm) =1 centimeter cm 10 centimeters =1 decimeter dm 10 decimeters =1 meter m 10 meters =1 dekameter Dm 10 dekameters =1 hektometer Hm 10 hektometers =1 kilometer Km...
Σελίδα 43 - BTU) is the amount of heat required to raise one pound of water from 59° to 60° Fahrenheit.
Σελίδα 115 - L is the length of the stroke in feet, A is the area of the piston in square inches, and N is the number of power strokes per minute.
Σελίδα 78 - Let W = weight of ball at end of lever; w = weight of lever itself; V = weight of valve and spindle, all in pounds; L = distance between fulcrum and center of ball; I = distance between fulcrum and center of valve; g = distance between fulcrum and center of gravity of lever, all in inches; A =area of valve, in square inches; P = pressure of steam, in pounds per square inch, at which valve will open . Then PAxl = WXL+wXg+VXl; whence P = (WL+wg+Vl)+Al; W = (PAl-wg-Vl)+L; L = (PAl-wg-Vl)-SW.
Σελίδα 22 - CIRCUMFERENCE OF A CIRCLE To find the circumference of a circle multiply the diameter by 3.1416 this latter known as Pi or by the symbol IT thus.
Σελίδα 97 - Subtract its cube from the first period, and to the remainder annex the second period for a dividend. 3. Take three times the square of the root already found ; and, annexing two ciphers, place it on the left as a trial divisor.
Σελίδα 122 - Measures of Weight 10 milligrams (mg) =1 centigram eg 10 centigrams =1 decigram dg 10 decigrams =1 gram g 10 grams =1 dekagram Dg 10 dekagrams =1 hektogram Hg 10 hektograms =1 kilogram Kg...
Σελίδα 118 - ... because the method of measurement is specified. The tangent of the average monthly angle of lag is determined by multiplying by the factor 1,732 the ratio between the sum of and the difference between the readings of two single-phase watt-hour meters installed on the supply circuit. From the tangent of the angle of lag, the cosine of the angle of lag, or power factor, is determined by reference to the standard tables. The "demand...
