Page 178 - A sphere is a solid bounded by a curved surface, every point of which is equally distant from a point within called the center.

Page 139 - A point moves so that the sum of the squares of its distances from the points (0, 0), (1, 0) is constant.

Page 288 - These equations may also be written in the form of proportions sin a : sin b : sin c = sin A : sin B : sin C. That is, the sines of the sides of a spherical triangle are proportional to the sines of the opposite angles.

Page 139 - Show that the locus of a point whose distance from a fixed plane is always equal to its distance from a fixed line perpendicular to the plane is a quadric cone.

Page 139 - Given the base of a triangle and the sum of the squares on its sides: to find the locus of its vertex.

Page 206 - ... case the conditions mentioned under (2) are met with. 6. — Interference between the teeth themselves is a common cause of noisy gearing. To rightly understand this cause it is necessary to enter briefly into the theory of the shape of the involute tooth. The involute is commonly denned as a curve described by the end of a string as it is unwound from a cylinder, the string being kept taut, so that in every position it may be described as a tangent to the cylinder. In Fig. 3, A represents the...
