Page 6 - Multiply the divisor, thus augmented, by the last figure of the root, and subtract the product from the dividend, and to the remainder bring down the next period for a new dividend.
Page 277 - The wedge is a very great mechanical power, since not only wood, but even rocks, can be split by it ; which it would be impossible to effect by the lever, wheel, and axle, or pulley ; for the force of the blow, or stroke, shakes the cohering parts, and thereby makes them separate more easily.
Page 271 - A lever of the fecond kind has the weight between the prop and the power. In this, as well as the former, the advantage gained is as the diftance of the power from the prop to the diftance of the weight from the prop : for the...

Page 278 - If the line g, instead of going round the groove e of the wheel D, goes round its axle I, the power of the machine will be as much...
Page 327 - ... of the bladder be overcome by the weight of the air; and then it will break with a report as loud as that of a gun.— If a flat piece of glafs be laid upon the open top of this receiver, and joined to it by a flat ring of wet leather between them; upon pumping the air out of the receiver, the prefibre of the outward air upon the flat glafs will break it all to pieces.
