الصفحة 69 - Since this was written, I have obtained formulae serving to express, generally, the law of the distribution of the electric fluid near the apex 0 of a cone, which forms part of a conducting surface of revolution having the same axis.
الصفحة 247 - We are so perfectly ignorant of the mode of action of the elements of the luminiferous ether on each other, that it would seem a safer method to take some general physical principle as the basis of our reasoning, rather than assume certain modes of action...
الصفحة 278 - From the identity of this formula with that for the centre of gravity, it appears that the velocity of the great primary wave of translation of a fluid is that due to gravity acting through a height equal to the depth of the centre of gravity of the transverse section of the channel below the surface of the fluid. 7- The height of a wave may be indefinitely increased by propagation into a channel which becomes narrower in the form of a wedge, the increased height being nearly in the inverse ratio...
الصفحة 248 - of the advantages of this method, of great importance, is that we are " necessarily led by the mere process of the calculation, and with little care "on our part, to all the equations and conditions which are requisite and "sufficient for the complete solution of any problem to which it may be "applied.
الصفحة 11 - Ifp be a particle of positive electricity under the influence of forces arising from any electrified body, the function in question, as is well known, will be obtained by dividing the quantity of electricity in each element of the body, by its distance from the particle p, and taking the total sum of these quotients for the whole body, the quantities of electricity in those elements which arc negatively electrified, being regarded as negative.
الصفحة 316 - ... vibration, it will not be sufficient merely to allow for the loss of weight caused by the fluid medium, but that it will likewise be requisite to conceive the density of the body augmented by a quantity proportional to the density of this fluid.
الصفحة x - In whatever way the elements of any material system may act upon each other, if all the internal forces exerted be multiplied by the elements of their respective directions, the total sum for any assigned portion of the mass will always be the exact differential of some function.
الصفحة 285 - Moreover, should the radius of the sphere of sensible action of the molecular forces bear any finite ratio to X, the length of a wave of light, as some philosophers have supposed, in order to explain the phenomena of dispersion, instead of an abrupt termination of our two media we should have a continuous though rapid change of state of the ethereal medium in the immediate vicinity of their surface of separation. And I have here endeavoured to...
الصفحة 50 - We therefore see, that the total charge of all the phials is precisely the same, as that which one only would receive, if placed in communication with the same conductor, provided its exterior coating were connected with the earth. Hence this mode of charging, although it may save time, will never produce a greater accumulation of fluid, than would take place, if one phial only were employed. 9. Conceive now, a hollow shell of perfectly conducting matter, of any form and thickness whatever, to be...
الصفحة 315 - ... fluid, when agitated by a solid ellipsoidal body, moving parallel to itself, according to any given law, always supposing the body's excursions very small, compared with its dimensions. From what will be shown in the sequel, the general solution of this problem may very easily be obtained. But as the principal object of our paper is to determine the alteration produced in Mr GREEN on the Vibration of Pendulums.
