Page 226 - The squares of the periods of revolution of any two planets are proportional to the cubes of their mean distances from the sun.
Page 94 - ... the tangent of the angle which the line makes with the axis of abscissae), was lately employed by M. Crova* for the discussion of experiments relating to the degree of constancy possessed by so-called
Page 75 - F(x±y), the differential coefficient will be the same if we suppose x to vary and y to remain constant, as when we suppose y to vary and x to remain constant, For, make x ± y — a/ : we shall then have M = F(a/) , du and — =p.
Page 172 - Curve is ono whose equation contains transcendental functions. Many of the higher plane curves possess historical interest, from the labor bestowed on them by ancient mathematicians. We shall consider only a few of them. THE CISSOID OF DIOCLES. 148. This curve was invented by Diocles, a Greek geometer who lived about the sixth century of the Christian era; the purpose of its invention was the solution of the problem of finding two mean proportionals. It may be defined as follows : If pairs of equal...
Page 233 - A magnitude is said to be ultimately equal to its Limit; and the two are said to be ultimately in a ratio of equality. 4. A line or figure ultimately coincides with the line or figure which is its Limit.
