Sivu 87 - If two triangles have two sides of the one equal to two sides of the other, each to each, and the included...
Sivu 6 - ... 3. What are the dimensions of the strongest rectangular beam, that can be made out of a given. cylinder, when placed to the most advantage ? and what is its strength, compared with that of the greatest square beam cut out of the same cylinder? 4. In the wheel and axle (the inertia of which may be neglected) required the ratio between the radii, when a weight...

In the interior rainbow, the tangent of the angle of incidence is twice that of the angle of refraction. 7. A sphere of less specific gravity than water, ascends from the depth a ; what is its velocity at the moment it reaches the surface ? 8. Explain the method of determining the heliocentric latitude and longitude of...
Sivu 88 - ... part of the pressure. 6. A cubical iceberg is 100 feet above the level of the sea, its sides being vertical : given the specific gravity of sea water = 1-0263 and of ice = '9214, at the temperature of 32°
Sivu 88 - Prove that the centres of oscillation and suspension are reciprocal. Of what use is this property, in the determination of the length of a pendulum which vibrates seconds in any given latitude ? 8. Explain the method of determining the ratio of the sines of incidence and refraction both in liquid and solid bodies. 9. Given the latitudes and longitudes of two places, where the inclination of the magnetic needle is nothing, to find the point of the terrestrial equator, which is cut by the magnetic...
