Page 71 - we repeat two definitions already given in arts. 54 and 67. Moment of a force with respect to a point. The moment of a force with respect to a point is the product of the force into the perpendicular from the point on the direction of the force. Moment of a force with respect to a plane. The moment

Page 285 - If the particles of a body attract with a force varying as the product of the mass into the distance, the resultant attraction of the body is the same as if the whole mass of the body were collected at its centre of gravity. Take the centre of gravity of the attracting

Page 43 - of the couple corresponding to the direction of the force and the moment of the couple to the intensity of the force. Hence for example, by Art. 29, the resolved part of a resultant couple in any direction is equal to the sum of the resolved parts of the component couples in the same direction. CHAPTER IV. RESULTANT

Page 64 - magnitude and direction of the resultant of any number of parallel forces acting on a rigid body, and to determine the centre of parallel forces. Let the points of application of the forces be referred to a system of rectangular co-ordinate axes. Let m 1 , m 2 ,... be the points of application; let

Thus the proposition called the Parallelogram of Forces is completely established. 18. Hence if P and Q represent two component forces acting at an angle a on a particle, the resultant
