Page 344 - involuntary tremulous motion, with lessened muscular power in parts not in action, and even when supported; with a propensity to bend the trunk forwards, and to pass from a walking to a running pace ; the senses and intellect being uninjured.
Page 104 - We may express the meaning of the law of conservation of force by saying, that every force of nature when it effects any alteration, loses and exhausts its faculty to effect the same alteration a second time. But while, by every alteration in nature, that force which has been the cause of this alteration is exhausted, there is always another force which gains as much power of producing new alterations in nature as the first has lost. Although, therefore, it is the nature of all inorganic forces to...
Page 173 - FAULT, in the language of miners, is the sudden interruption of the continuity of strata in the same plane, accompanied by a crack or fissure varying in width from a mere line to several feet, which is generally filled with broken stone, clay, &c., and such a displacement that the separated portions of the once continuous strata occupy different levels.
Page 196 - Specific gravity. The ratio of the weight of a body to the weight of an equal volume of water at some standard temperature.
Page 240 - System, (p. 332,) defines it to be "a manifestation of disease of the brain, characterized by a general or partial derangement of one or more faculties of the mind, and in which, while consciousness is not abolished, mental freedom is perverted, weakened or destroyed.
Page 379 - A poison is any substance which, when applied to the body externally, or in any way introduced into the system, without acting mechanically, but by its own inherent qualities, is capable of destroying life.
Page 259 - ... a piece of glass, or other transparent substance, having its two surfaces so formed that the rays of light, in passing through it, have their direction changed, and are made to diverge or converge, or to become parallel after diverging or converging.
Page 104 - ... loses and exhausts its faculty to effect the same alteration a second time. But while, by every alteration in nature, that force which has been the cause of this alteration is exhausted, there is always another force which gains as much power of producing new alterations in nature as the first has lost. Although, therefore, it is the nature of all inorganic forces to become exhausted by their own working, the power of the whole system in which these alterations take place is neither exhausted...
Page 227 - ... a word implying the theory that granite, gneiss, and the other crystalline formations are alike netherformed rocks, or rocks which have not assumed their present form and structure at the surface.
Page 258 - The volume of a confined mass of gas is inversely proportional to the pressure to which it is exposed : the smaller the pressure the larger the volume, and the greater the pressure the less the volume. This principle holds true not only with air, but also with every kind of aeriform matter. If, instead of using that mixture of oxygen and nitrogen we call air, we had introduced into the gasometer...
