Page xiii - D, in which the circumscribing circle cuts the ellipse, is equal to 3 fj(a2+42) -t-?'2}, r being the semi-diameter drawn to the point ; and (3) the sum of the squares of the diameters of the ellipse passing through the points A, B, C, is equal to the sum of the squares of three conjugate diameters ................ 69 2917. If a conic pass through two given points and touch a given conic at a given point, the chord of intersection with the given conic will pass through a fixed point on the given straight...

Page 90 - ... 2446. (Proposed by WK CLIFFORD, BA) — PQ is a chord of a conic, equally inclined to the axis with the tangent at P. Any circle through PQ, cuts the conic in RS. Show that the harmonic conjugate of RS relative to P lies on the straight line joining Q. to the other extremity of the diameter through P. Hence show by inversion that if chords be drawn to a circular cubic through the point where the asymptote cuts the curve, the locus of their middle points is a circle through the double point. Solution...

It is hardly necessary to add that instead of a zone we may take a patch of matter bounded by a contour of any form within the circle C, and then, finding the inverse of this contour so as to obtain a corresponding external patch, the two together, by the combined attractions of their particles according to the inverse fifth power of the distance, will serve to make a body describe the circle...
