Page 223 - This electromotive force may be resolved into two components, one parallel and the other perpendicular to I, as shown, for example, in Fig.

Page 114 - The power is to the weight, as the radius of the pulley is to the chord of the arc enveloped by the rope.

Page 39 - Lami's Theorem. If three forces acting on a particle keep it in equilibrium, each is proportional to the sine of the angle between the other two.

Page 42 - Hence, the moment of the resultant of two forces is equal to the algebraic sum of the moments of the forces taken separately. 53. Forces Acting at Different Points. Parallel Forces.— We have thus far considered forces acting upon a single particle, or upon one point of a body. If, how- Fia 33...

The moment of inertia of a body, with respect to an axis, is the sum of the products obtained by multiplying the mass of each elementary particle by the square of its distance from the axis; hence, the moment of inertia of the same body varies according to the position of the axis.
