Page 6 - In any plane triangle, the sum of any two sides is to their difference as the tangent of half the sum of the opposite angles is to the tangent of half their difference. By Theorem II. we have a : b : : sin. A : sin. B.
Page 135 - Shew that the sum of the products of each body into the square of- its velocity is a minimum, when the velocities are reciprocally proportional to the quantities of matter in the bodies.
Page 122 - From the same demonstration it likewise follows that the arc which a body, uniformly revolving in a circle by means of a given centripetal force, describes in any time is a mean proportional between the diameter of the circle and the space which the same body falling by the same given force would descend through in the same given time.
Page 138 - If the circumference of a circle be divided into any number of equal parts, the chords joining the successive points of division form a regular polygon inscribed in the circle ; and the tangents drawn at the points of division form a regular polygon circumscribed about the circle.
Page 28 - In a triangle, having given the ratio of the two sides, together with both the segments of the base, made by a perpendicular from the vertical angle, to determine the sides of the triangle.
Page 98 - Given the vertical angle, the difference of the two sides containing it, and the difference of the segments of the base made by a perpendicular from the vertex ; construct the triangle.
Page 50 - If two triangles have two sides of the one equal to two sides of the other, each to each, and the included...
Page 123 - CLASSES. 1. Shew from the principles of the fifth book of Euclid, that a ratio of greater inequality is diminished, and of less inequality increased, by adding a quantity to both its terms. 2. The time of day at a given place determined from observations of the sun's altitude is 9h. 10'.45"; and a chronometer set to Greenwich time shews 6h. 3'.
