PREFACE
TO FIRST EDITION, 1872.
QHOULD experts in engineering complain that they do not find
^ anything of interest in this volume, the writer would merely
remind them that it was not his intention that they should. The
book has been prepared for young members of the profession ; and
one of the leading objects has been to elucidate, in plain En^ish, a
few important elementary principles which the savants have envel
oped in such a haae of mysteiy as to render pursuit hopeless to any
but a confirmed mathematician.
Comparatively few engineers are good mathematicians ; and in
the writer's opinion. It is fortunate that such is the case ; for nature
rarely combines high mathematical talent, with that practical tact,
and observation of outward things, so essential to a successful
engineer.
There have been, it is true, brilliant exceptions ; but they are
very rare. But few even of those who have been tolerable mathe
matidana when young, can, as they advance in years, and become
engaged in business, spare the time necessary for retaining such
accomplishments.
Nearly all the scientific principles which constitute the founda
tion of civil engineering are susceptible of complete and satis
factory explanation to any person who reaUy possesses only so much
elementary knowledge of arithmetic and natural philosophy as is
Bupposed to be taught to boys of twelve or fourteen in our public
schools.*
* Let two little boys weigh each other on a platform scale. Then when thej
iMdanoe each other on their board seeeaw, let them see (and measure for them
•elTbs) that the lighter one is farther from the fencerail on which their boaid is
placed, in the same proportion as the heavier boy outweighs the lighter one.
Tfaey will then have learned the grand principle of the iever. Then let them
measure and see that the light one seesaws farther than the heavy one, in the
same proportion ; and they will have acquired the principle of virtual veloeiUa^L.^
Explain to them that eqwUUy qf moments means nothing more than that
V
VI PREFACE.
^^^ •
The little tbat is beyond this, might safely be intrusted to the
savants. Let them work out the results, and give them to the engi
neer in intelligible language. We could afford to take their words
for it, because such things are their specialty ; and because we
know that they are the best qualified to investigate them. On the
same principle we intrust our lives to our physician, or to the
captain of the vessel at sea. Medicine and seamanship are their
respective specialties.
If there is any point in which the writer may hope to meet
the approbation of proficients, it is in the accuracy of the tables.
The pains taken in this respect have been very great. Most of the
tables have been entirely recalculated expressly for this book ; and
one of the results has been the detection of a great many errors in
those in common use. He trusts that none will be found exceed
ing one, or sometimes two, in the last figure of any table in which
great accuracy is required. There are many errors to that amount,
they seat themselves at their measured distances on their seesaw, ikey balance
each other. Let them see that the weight of the heavy hoy, when multiplied hy
his distance in feet from the fencerail amounts to just as inuch as the weight of
the light one when multiplied by his distance. Explain to them that each of
the amounts is in footpounds. Tell them that the lightest one, because he see
saws so much faster than the other, will bump against the ground Just as hard as
the heavy one ; and that this means that their momentums are equal. The boys
may then go in to dinner, and probably puzzle their big lout of a brother who
has just passed through college with high honors. They will not forget what
they have learned, for they learned it as play, without any earpulling, spanking,
or keeping in. Let their bats and balls, their marbles, their swings, Ac, once
become their philosophical apparatus, and children may be taught {really taught)
many of the most important principles of engineering before they can read or
write. It is the ignorance of these principles, so easily taught even to children,
that constitutes what is popularly called " The Practical Enginkeb ; " which,
in the great majority of cases, means simply an ignoramus, who blunders along
without knowing any other reason for what he does, than that he has seen it done
BO before. And it is this same ignorance that causes employers to prefer this
practical man to one who is conversant with principles. They, themselves, were
spanked, kept in, &jc, when boys, because they could not master leverage, equality
of moments, and virtual velocities, enveloped in x's, p's, Greek letters, square
roots, cuberoots, &c, and they naturally set down any man as a fool who could.
They turn up their noses at science, not dreaming that the word means simply,
Juwwing why. And it must be confessed that they are not altogether without
reason ; for the savants appear to prepare their books with the express object of
preventing purchasers, (they have but few readers,) from learning why.
PREFACE. Vll
especially where the recalcalation was very tedious, and where,
oousequently, interpolation was resorted to. They are too small to
be of practical importance. He knows, however, the almost impos
sibility of avoiding larger errors entirely; and will be glad to be
informed of any that may be detected, except the final ones alluded
to, that they may be corrected in case another edition should be
called for. Tables which are absolutely reliable, possess an in
trinsic value that is not to be measured by money alone. With this
consideration the volume has been made a trifle larger than would
otherwise have been necessary, in order to admit the stereotyped
sines and tangents from his book on railroad curves. These have
been so thoroughly compared with standards prepared independ
ently of each other, that the writer believes them to be absolutely
correct.
In order to reduce the volume to pocketsize, smaller type hat
been used than would otherwise have been desirable.
Many abbreviations of common words in frequent use have been
introduced, such as abut, oen, diag, hor, vert, pres, &c, instead of
abutment, center, diagonal, horizontal, vertical, pressure, &c. They
can in no case lead to doubt ; while they appreciably reduce the
thickness of the volume.
Where prices have been added, they are placed in footnotes. They
are intended merely to give an approximate or comparative idea of
value ; for constant fluctuations prevent anything farther.
The addresses of a few manufacturing establishments have also
been inserted in notes, in the belief that they might at times be
found convenient. They have been given without the knowledge
of the proprietors.
The writer is frequently asked to name good elementary books
on civil engineering ; but regrets to say that there are very few
such in our language. "Civil Engineering," by Prof. Mahan of
West Point ; " Roads and Railroads," by the late Prof. Gillespie ;
and the '* Handbook of Railroad Construction," by Mr. George L.
Vose, Civ. Eng. of Boston, are the best. The writer has reason to
know that a new edition of the last, now in press, will be far
Viii PREFACE.
superior to all predecessors ; and better adapted to the wants of
the young engineer than any book that has appeared.
Many of Weale's series are excellent. Some few of them are
behind the times ; bat it is to be hoped that this may be rectified
in iiitare editions. Among pocketbooks, Haswell, Hamilton's
Usefhl Information, Henck, Molesworth, Nystrom, W^^^®) ^f
abound in valuable matter.
The writer does not include Rankine, Moseley, and Weisbach,
because, although their books are the productions of masterminds,
and exhibit a profundity of knowledge beyond the reach of ordi
nary men, yet their language also is so profound that very few
engineers can read them. The writer himself, having long since
foigotten the little higher mathematics he once knew, cannot. To
him they are but little more than striking instances of how com
pletely the most simple &cts may be buried out of sight under
heaps of mathematical rubbish.
Where the word *'ton '' is used in this volume, it always means
2240 lbs.
There is no table of errata, because no errors are known to exist
except two or three of a single letter in spelling ; and which will
probably escape notice.

PREFACE TO NINTH EDITION.
TWENTYSECOND THOUSAND, 1885.
CI INCE the appearance of its last edition (ihe twentieth thousand)
'^ in 1883, the " PpcketBoo]c " has been thoroughly revised, and
many important additions and other alterations have been made.
These necessitated considerable change in the places of the former
matter, and it veas deemed best to turn this necessity to advantage,
and to make a thorough rearrangement, putting all of the articles,
as far as possible, in a rational order.
The list of new matter and of revisions and extensions is condensed as
foUows, 1902 :
New articles on the steambammer pile driver, machine rock drills, air com
pressors, high explosives, cost of earthwork by drag and wheel scrapers and by
steam excavators, iron trestles, track tanks, artesian wellboring and standard
time, and new tables of railroad curves in metric measure, circumferences and
areas of circles, thermometric scales, and fractions with their decimal equivalents.
Articles revised and extended, on circular arcs, thermometers, flotation, flow
in pipes, waterworks appliances, velocities, d;c, of falling bodies, centrifugal
force, strength of timber, strength of beams, riveting, riveted girders, trusses,
Bospension bridges, rail joints, turnouts, turntables, locomotives, cars, railroad
statistics and manufactured articles, including columns, beams, channels, angles
and tees.
Most of the new matter is in nonpareil, the larger of the two
types heretofore used. Boldfoced type has been freely used ;
but only for the purpose of guiding the reader rapidly to a desired
division of a subject. For emphasis, italics have been employed.
Illustrations which were lacking in clearness or neatness have
been retouched and relettered, or replaced with new and better
cuts. The new matter is very freely illustrated.
New rules have been put in the shape of formulae, and many of
the old rules have been recast into the same form.
ix
X FB£:fAC£.
The addition of new matter, and a number of blank spaces
necessarily left in making the rearrangement, have increased the
number of pages about onefifth.
The new index is in stricter alphabetical order than that of
former editions, and contains more than twice as many entries,
although much repetition has been avoided by the free use of cross
references, without which this part of the work might have been
indefinitely extended.
The selection of articles of manufacture or merchandise for illus
tration, has been guided by no other consideration than their fitne^
for the purpose, and the courtesy of the parties representing them,
in supplying information.
The writer gratefully acknowledges the kindness of those who
have assisted in furnishing and arranging data.

The articles on arithmetic are considerably extended, notably
by the addition of new matter relating to interest, annuities,
depreciation, etc., including several tables.
The new and greatly enlarged table of fiveplace logarithms is
arranged in a somewhat novel form. In constructing this table,
the effort has been to obviate the difficulty, present in all tables
where the difference between successive numbers is constant
throughout, that the differences between successive logarithnas
of the lower numbers are relatively very great. In the new table
the differences between logarithms are much more nearly con
stant. For convenience in rough calculations, the old table of
fiveplace logarithms, on two facing pages, is retained.
The Conversion Tables contain the equivaleilts of both English
and metric units, and of each of these in terms of the other; but,
owing to the extreme ease with which one metric imit may be
converted into others of the same system, it has been unnecessary
to burden the table with many of the metric units. The tables
have been separately calculated by at least two persons, and their
results compared and corrected. One of these results has then
been used by the compositor in setting the type, and the proofs
have been compared with the other.
The new article on the location of the meridian is much more
complete than its predecessors, and a new table of azimuths of
Polaris, corresponding to different hourangles, has been added.
Perhaps the most radical and extensive of all the changes in
this edition are those in the articles on Statics, on Beams and on
Trusses These have been almost entirely rewritten and com
pletely modernized. Under Trusses, modern methods of cal
culating the stresses in and the dimensions of the several
FBEFAOS. xiii
members, and modern methods of construction, are explained,
and several modern roofs and bridges are described and illus
trated. One of the most notable features in the new article
is the digest of prominent modem specifications for bridges
for steam and electric railroads and for highways. The articles
on the strength of beams are greatly simplified and brought into
harmony with modern. methods of dealing with that subject.
In preparing the digests of specifications for iron and steel,
use has been made of the specifications recently adopted
by the American Section of the International Association for
Testing Materials; while those of the American Society of
Civil Engineers and of the recent report of a Board of United
States Army engineer officers have been similarly used in con
nection with cement.
The price list of engineering materials and appliances has been
prepared merely as a useful guide in roughly estimating the ap
proximate costs of work, and it is not to be supposed that it can,
in any important case, take the place of personal inquiry and
correspondence with manufacturers or their agents, nearly 700
of whom are named in the accompanying list of names and
addresses of manufacturers, etc. From its first appearance, the
Pocket Book has undertaken to give prices of certain manufac
tured articles, and addresses of those from whom they may be
obtained; but these, scattered as they were throughout the
voliune, were necessarily desultory, and limited in their extent
and usefulness. It is hoped that the present articles will be
found at least an acceptable substitute for them.
As in preceding editions, all new work and all revisions have
been the subject of our personal attention, and " scissorsand
paste" methods have been scrupulously avoided. Even in using
lists of manufactured articles, etc., although their statements
have in general been left unchanged, the matter has in most or all
cases been rearranged and classified, to suit the requirements of
this work.
For instance, the ''digests" of specifications for Cement, for
Steel and Iron, for Railroad and Highway Bridges and for Steel
Buildings, are by no means mere quotations from the originals;
but, as their name implies, the result of careful digesting of the
contents of the specifications selected for the purpose; their
several provisions being carefully studied, in nearly all cases re
worded or reduced to figures, and tabulated in form convenient
XIV PREFACE.
for reference, the whole being arranged in such logical order as to
facilitate reference.
As in all cases heretofore, every rule or formula and every
description of methods, etc., can be readily understood and ap
plied by any one, engineer or layman, understanding the use of
common and decimal fractions, of roots and powers, of loga
rithms, and of sines, tangents, etc., of angles. On the other hand,
one who is not possessed of this very meager stock of mathemati
cal knowledge will hardly approach engineering problems, even
as an amateur; and we have therefore followed the precedent,
established seventeen years ago, of putting rules in the shape of
formulas, which have " the great advantage of showing the whole
operation at a glance, of making its principle more apparent, and
of being much more convenient for reference" (From Preface to
ninth edition, 1885).
The new matter is very fully illustrated. As heretofore, all
cuts have been engraved expressly for this work.
As in preparing for the ninth edition (1885), all the matter
of the book has been rearranged. This has necessitated a new
paging; and, in making this, the lettering of pages, introduced
from time to time as new editions have appeared in the past,
has been eliminated. The rearrangement and the addition of
so much new matter have of course necessitated the preparation
of a new table of contents and a new index.
In this, as in all previous editions since the eighth (1883),
practically all new matter has been set in nonpareil, the larger of
the two types hitherto used, and much of the old matter retained
has been reset in the larger type.
We take pleasure in acknowledging our indebtedness to many
who have kindly assisted us in our work, notably to Messrs. Otis
E. Hovey and Wm. M. White, of the American Bridge Co., for
painstaking examination of the article on Trusses; to Mr. C.
Robert Grimm and Professor E. J. McCaustland for similar as

* The small letter fr (pt) is universally employed to designate the number of
times (= 3.14159265 . . .) the diameter of a circle is oootained in the circum
ference, or the radius in the semicircumference. In the circular measure of
angles, an angle is designated by the number of times the radius of any circle is
<k>ntained iu an arc of the same circle subtending that angle. ir then stands for
an angle of 180° (= two right anglesX because, in any circle, ir X radius = the
semiclrcumferenoe.
The capital letter n (;>i) is used by some mathematical writers to indicate the
product obtained by multiplying together the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 . . . etc., up to
any given point. Thus, n 4 = 1 X2 X 3X4 = 24.
t The capital letter 2 (sigma) is used to designate a mm. Thus, in a system
of pandlel forces, if we calf each of the forces (irrespective of their amounts) F,
then their resultant, which is equal to the (algebraic) sum of the forces, may he
written B = 2 F.

ABITHMETIO.
FACTORS AND MVI4TIPI1ES.
(1) Factors of any number, n, are numbers whose product is = n. Thus,
17 and 4 are factors of 68 ; so also are 34 and 2 ; also 17, 2, and 2.
<3) A prime number, or prime, is a number which has no factors,
except itself and 1 ; as 2, 3, 5, 19, 2S&.
(8) A common HicAor, common diwiflor or common meaanre,
of two or more numbers, is a number which exactly divides each of them. Thus,
8 is a common dirisor of 6, 12, and 18.
(4) Tlie hiipiieBt common fiictor or nreatest common diwiaor,
of two or more numbers, is called their H. C. F. or their O. C I>. Thus, 6 is
the H. C. F. of 6, 12, and 18.
(5) To find (lie H. €• F. of two or more numbers ; find the prime factors
of each, and multiply together those factors which are common to all, taking
••di factor only once. Thus, required the H. C. F. of 78, 126, and 284

RATIO AND PlU^PORTIOir*
(1) Batio. The ratio of two quantities, as A and B, is expressed by their
qaotient, ^ or •. Thus, the ratio of 10 to 5 is =»  =a 2 : the ratio of 5 to 10
A*
(2) Dapllcate ratio is the ratio of the tquares of numbers. Thus, ^s
is the duplicate ratio of A and B.
(S) Proportion is equality of ratios. Thus, ^ = ^. = ^A*? = 2.
I9 the figure, which represents s^ments, A, B, C, and D, between parulel lines ;
A : B : : C : D, or 5 = ^.
(4) The first and fourth terms, A and D, are called the extremes, and the
second and third, B and C, are called the means. The first term, A or C,
of each ratio, is called the antecedent, and the second term, B or D, is called
the consequent. D is called the fonrtli proportional of A, B, and C.
(5) In a proportion, A : B = C : D, we have :
Product of extremes = product of means. A D >=

ABITHMETIC. 39
(0) Reciprocal or inverae proportion. Two quantities are said
to be redproeally or inversely proportional, when the ratio ^ of two values, A
B'
and B, of the one, is => the reciprocal, j,^ of the ratio of the two corresponding
values of the other. Thus, let A = a velocity of 2 miles per hour, and B == 3
miles per hour. Then the hours required per mile are respectively. A' = — = i»
andB' =  = J. HereA: B = B' : A', or  = ?^„ or  =  = i = ls^'.
(10) If two variable numbers, A and B, are reciprocally proportional, so that
A' : B' = B" : A", the product, A' A", of any two values of one of the numbers
is equal to the product, B' B'' pf the two corresponding values of the other.
(11) The application of proportion to practical problems is sometimes called
the rale 01 three. Thus : sing^le rule of tbree : If 3 men lay 10,000
bricks in a certain time, how many could 6 men lay in the same time?
As 3 men are to 6 men, so are 10,000 bricks to 20,000 bricks; or, 10,000
bricks X g = 20,000 bricks.
If 3 men require 10 hours to lay a certain number of bricks, how many hours
would 6 men require to lay the same number?
As 6 men are to 3 men, so are 10 hours to 5 hours ; or, 10 hours X  = 5 hours.
(12) Double rule of tbree.
If 3 men can lay 4,000 bricks in 2 days, how many men can lay 12,000 bricks
in 3 days? Here 4,000 bricks require 3 men 2 days, or 6 mandays, and 12,000
12 000
bricks will require 6 X XaSa = 6 X 3 = 18 mandays ; and, as the work is to be
done in 3 days, ^ = 6 men will be required.
PROGRESSION.
(1) Aritbmetteal Prog^ression. A series of numbers is said to be in
arithmetical progression when each number differs from the preceding one by
the same amount. Thus, —2. —1, 0, 1, 2, 8, 4, etc., where diff'erence = 1 ; or 4, 3,
2, 1, 0, —1, —2, etc.. where diflTerence == —1 : or —4, —2, 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, where
dlffiapence = 2 ; or % 1%, 1, %, %, %, 0, % —3^, etc., where diffference = —^
(2) In any such series the numbers are called terms. Let a be the first term,
I the last term, d the common differdnce, n the number of terms, and s the sum
of the terms. Then

be arranged in a row. To do this, multiply together all the numbers used in.
counting the things. Thus, in how many positions in a row can 9 things be
placed? Here,
1X2X3X4X6X6X7X8X9 = 362880 positions. Ans.
(2) Combinatton shows how many combinations of a few things can be
made out of a greater number of things. To do this, first set down that number
which indicates the greater number of things; and after it a series of numbers,
diminishing by 1, until there are in all as many as the number of the few thinga
that are to form each combination. Then beginoing under the last one, set down
said number of few things \ and going backward, set down another series, also^
diminishing by 1, until arriving under the first of the upper numbers. Multiply
together all the upper numbers to form one product; and all the lower ones to
form another. Divide the upper product by the lower one.
Ex. How many combinations oi 4 figures each, can be made from the 9 figure*

PEBCENTAOE, INTEREST, ANNUITIES.
Percentagre*
(1) Batio is often expressed by means of the word " per." Thus, we speak of
a grade of 105.6 feet per mile, i. e., per 5280 feet. When the two numbers in the
ratio refer to quantities of the same kind and denomination, the ratio is often
expressed as a percentage (perAundredage). Thus, a grade of 105.6 feet per mile,.
* Equations involving powers and roots are conveniently solved by means of
logarithms.
AMTtBUmiC. 41
or per 6280 feet, is equivalent to a grade of 0.02 foot per foot,* or 2 feet per 100
feet, or simply (since botli dimensions are in feet) 2 per 100, <» 2 per " cent.'*
(2) Onefiftietli, or 1 per 50, is plainly equal to two hundredths, or 2 per Atm
dred, or 2 per cetU. Similarly, 3^ = 25 per cent, % =,3 X 26 per cent. = 75 per
cent., etc Heace, to reduce a ratio to the form of percentage, divide 100 times*
the first term by the second. Thus, in a concrete of 1 part cement to 2 of sand
and 5 of broken stone, there are 8 parts in all, and we have, by weight— f
Cement = X » 0.126 = 12.6 per cent, of the whole.
Sand =2. = 0.260= 26.0 " "
Stone =. = 0.626= 62.6 " "
Concrete = f = 1000 = 100.0 " "
(3) Percentage is of very wide application in money matters, payment for
service in such matters being often based upon the amount of money involved.
Thus, a purcliasing or selling agent may be paid a brokerage or commission
which forms a certain percentage of the money value of the goods bought or
sold ; the premium paid for insurance is a percentage upon the value of the goods
insured; etc.
Interest.
(4) Interest is hire or rental paid for the loan of money. The sum loaned is
caDea the prlneiiMftl, and the number of cents paid annually for the loan of
each dollar, or of dollars per hundred dollars, is called the rate of interest*
The rate is always stated as a percentage.
(5^ If the interest is paid to the lender as it accrues, the money is said to be
at siniple interest ; but if the interest is periodically added to the princi
pal, so that it also earns interest* the money is said to be at eomponncl
Interest, and the interest is said to be compounded.
Simple Interest.
(6) At the end of a year, the interest on the principal, P, at the rate, r, is »
P r, and the Amoant, A, or sum of principal and interest, is
A = P + P r = P (1 + r).
(7) At the end of a number, n, of years, the interest is » P rn (see right
hand side of Fig. 1), and
A = P + P rn =» P (1 + rn).
Thus, let P = $866.32, r = 3 per cent., or 0.03, n=l year, 3 mouths and 10
days =» 1 year and 100 days = 1J^ Y^axB =» 1.274 years. Then A — P (1 + rn)
— S866.82 X (1 + 0.03 X 1.274) » $866.32 X 1.08822 => 8898.39.
(8) For the present worth, principal, or eapltallEatlon, P, of
the amount, A, we have
p
1 + rn
Thns, for the sum, P, which, in 1 year, 8 months, 10 days, at 8 per cent.
898 39
simple interest, will amount to S898.39, we have P « , ^ no v^ i otA = ^^866.32.
(9) In commercial business, interest is commonly ealenlatecl approxl*
nuktely by taking the year as consisting of 12 months of 30 days each. Then,
at 6 per cent., the interest for 2 months, or 60 days, = 1 per cent; 1 month, or 30
days, = Hp^ cent.; 6 days = 0.1 per cent. Thus, required the interest on
$1264.35 for 6 months, 28 days, at 6 per cent.
*A.Jraetianj as ^^ •^, etc., or its decimal equivalent, as 0.125, 0.3126, etc.,
is compared with unUy or one; but in percentage the first terra of the ratio is
compared with one hwndred units of tue second term. Mistakes often occur
through n^lect of this distinction. Thus, 0.06 (six per cent, or six per hundred)
is sometimes misread six onehundredths of one per cent, or six ouehun
dredths per cent,

Compound Interest.
(11) Interest is usually compounded annually, semiannually, or quarterly.
If it is compounded annually, then (see left side of Fig. 1)
at the end of 1 year A = P (1 + r)
2 years A = P (1 + r) (1 + r) = P (1 + r)«
n years A = P (1 + r)**; and
^=(T:n^n=A(i + r)

(14) Under "Interest" we deal with cases where a certain sum or "prin
cipal,** P, paid once for all, is allowed to accumulate either simple or compound
interest ; but in many cases equal periodical payments or appropriations, called
•mnaltiee, are allowed to accumulate, each earning its own interest, usually
compoand.

ARITHMEnO.
(15) Thua, a sum of money is set aside annually to accumulate oompoand
interest and thus form a stiikliiil^ ftind, in order to extinguish a debt. In
this way, the cost of engineering works is frequently paid virtually in instal
ments. This process is called amortlBatlon.
(16) In estimating the operating expenses of engineering works, an allowance
is made for depreelatlon. In calculating this allowance, we estimate or
assume the lifetime, n, of the plant, and find that annuity, p, which, at an
assumed rate, r, of compound interest, will, in the time n, amount to the cost of
the plant, and thus provide a fund by means of which the plant may be replaced
when worn out or superseded.
(17) The present wortb, present walae, or capltaliBation, W.
Fig. 2, of an annuity, p, for a given number, n, of years, is that sum whidi. if
now placed at compound interest at the assumed rate, r. will, at the end of that
time, reach the same amount, A, as will be reached by tnat annuity.

P = principal ; r => rate of interest ; n = number of years ;
A =■ amount ; p = annuity ; W = present worth.
The interest is supposed to be compounded, and the annuities to be set aside,
at the end of each year.
Compound Interest.
(1) The amount. A, of $1, at the end of n years, see (11), is A => (1 + r)".
(2) Since the present worth of (1 + r)\ due in n years, is $1, see (1), it
Uows, by proportion, that tlie present worth, W, of $1, due in n yean,
fol
isW =
(1 + r)'
= (1 + r)
Annuities.
(3) In n years, an annuity of $r will amount to (1 + r)** — 1.* Hence, the
amount. A, of an annuity of $1, at the end of n years, is
*In the case of compound interest on $1, the rate, r, may be regarded as an
annuity, earning its interest; and, at the end of n years, the amount of the
several annuities (each = the annual interest, r, on the $1 principal) with the
interests earned by them, is = the amount, (1 + r)", of $1 in n years at rate, r,

(19) In comparing the merits of proposed systems of improvement, it is
usual to add, to the operating expenses and to the cost of ordinary repairs and
nuUntenance, (1) the interest on the cost, (2) an allowance for depreciation, and
sometimes (3) an annuity to form a sinking fund for the extinction of the debt
incurred by construction. The cilpitalization of the total annual expense, thus
obtained, is then regarded as the true first cost of the construction. Ail the
elements of eost are thus reduced to a common basis, and the several propositions
become properly comparable.
(20) Thus, in estimating, in 1899,^ the cost of improving the water supply of
Fliiladelphia, the rate, r, of interest was assumed at 3 per cent, and depreciation
was assumed as below. Under "Life" is given the assumed lifetime of each
class of structure or apparatus, and under *' Annuity " the sum which must be
set aside annually in order to replace, at the expiration of that life, $1,000 of the
corresponding value.

I>rODENAI« OB BUOBBNART NOTATION.*
(1) In the Arabic system of notation 10 is taken as the base, but in dnodenal
notation 12, or " a dozen," is the base. While 10 is divisible only by 0, and (once
only) by 2, 12^s divisible twice by 2, and ouce by 8, by 4, and by $. This accounts
for tne popularity of the dozen as a basis of enumeration ; of weights, as in the
Troy pound of 12 ounces ; of measures, as in the foot of 12 inches ; thoTear of 12
months, and the half day of 12 hours ; and of coinage, as in the British shilling
of 12 pence.
(S) The dnodenal notation uses the dozen (12), the gross (12^ = 144), and the
great gross (12^ == 12 gross =» 1728), as the decimal system uses the ten (10), the
hundred (10^ = 100), and the thousand (10^ =» 10 hundred => 1000). Two arbitrary
single characters, such as T and E, represent ten and eleven respectively ; the
symbol 10 represents a dozen ; 11 represents thirteen, and so on. Thus, the num
erals of the two systems compare as follows :
Decimal 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 ... 20 21 22 28 24 25 36 48 60

(8) IHiodeclmaUL Areas of rectangular figures, the sides of which are
eadbressed in feet and inches, are still sometimes found by a method called
*' Duodecimals," in which the products are in square feet, in twelfths of a square
toot (each equal to 12 square inches) and in square inches ; but, by means of our
table of *' Inches, reduced to decimals of a foot." page 221, the sides may be taken
in feet and decimals of a foot, and the multiplication thus more conveniently
performed, after which the decimal fraction of a foot in the product may, if
oesired, be converted into square inches by multiplying by 144.

BECIPBOCAIiS.
(a) Tbe reeiproeal of a number Is the quantity obtained by divid
ing unity or 1 by that number. In other words, if n be any number, then
Recip n = — . Thus, Redp 40 = — =s= 0.025 ; Recip 0.4 = — = 2.5, etc., etc
Hence, Recip — = — , because Recip  = l» — =«1X — =* — •
Thus, since 1 yard = 36 inches, 1 inch = ^ yard = .027777778 yard, for Recip
36 = .027777778. Again, 1 foot head of water gives a pressure of .4336 lbs. per
square inch. Hence a pressure of 1 lb. per square inch corresponds to a head
of ^^ feet = 2.306805 feet, for Recip .4335 = 2.306805. (See b, below.)
(b) It follows that if any number in the column headed *' No." be taken as
the denominator of a common fraction whose numerator is 1, the corresponding
reciprocal is the value of that fraction expressed in decimals.* Thus, ^ » .03126.
Hence, to reduce a eommon fraction to decimal form, multiply
the reciprocal of the denominator by the numerator. Thus, ^ sa .63125, because
Recip 82 = .03125, and .03125 X 17 = .53125.
(e; Conversely, if the reciprocal of a number n be taken as a number, then the
number n itself becomes the reciprocal. In other words, Recip — =» n. Thus,
Recip 0.025 = Recip ^ — 40 ; Recip 2.5 = Recip ~ = 0.4, etc., etc.
* The numbers 2 and 5, and their powers and products, are the only ones whose
reciprocalB can be exactly expressed in decimaUi
BEGIPROOALS OF NI7MBEBS. 53
(d) The prodnet of any nmnber by its own redpioeal is equal to unity or 1 ;
•r, n X — =r — = 1.
* n n
(e) Any number, a X Becip of a number, n = o x — = — .
Hence, to aToid the labor of dlTiding, we may multiply by the redp
roctU of the divisor. Thus,
200 +■ 48750 = 200 X Becip 48750 » 200 X.00002051282 (see ll, below)=.004102564
(f ) Any number, a 5 Becip of a number, n — ai — = an.
fieiice, a f Becip a = a * — =»aX'7~ = a*.
Thus. Eedp2 = 0.6.andg^ = ^ = 42..
(:g) The numbers in the foregoing table extend from 1 to 1000 ; bat the recip
rocals of maltlples of these nmnbers by 10 may be taken from the
table by adding one cipher to the left of the reciprocal (after the decimal point)
for each cipher added to the number. Thus,
Becip 390 = .002564103 ;
Becip 3900 = .0002564103;
Becip 39000 » .00002564108 ;
and the reciprociJs of nambers eontaining' decimals may be taken
firom the table by shifting the decimal point in the tabular reciprocal one place
to the right for each decimal place in the number. Thus:
Becip 227 = .004405286;
Becip 22.7 = .04405286;
Becip 2.27 » .4405286;
Becip .227 = 4.405286;
Becip .0227 = 44.05286.
(k) The reciprocal of a number of more than three fkgnrea may be
taken firom the table approxinvately by interpolation. Thus, to find Becip 236.4:
Becip 236 =.004237288
Becip 237 =■ .004219409
Differences: 1, .000017879, 286.4—^ = 0.4.
Then, 0.4 X .000017879 = .000007152,
and Becip 236 =.004237288
minus .00 0007152
= Becip 236.4 =.004230136 by interpolation.
The correct reciprocal is .004280118.
(1) The reciprocals of numbers not in the table may be conveniently found
bjr means of logarithms. Thus, to find the Becip 236.4 = :
Log 1 =0.000000
Subtract Log 236.4 = 2.373647
'7.626353 = liOg 0.00428012
Becip 286.4 — 0.00423012.
, ^ J « , M24 286.4
To iUid Becip .^^^ =3524",
Log 236.4 = 2.378647
Subtract Log 8424 = 8.925518
"5.448129 = Log 0.0280627.
fU24
Re«ip^^ = 0.0280627.
' (J) Position of the decimal point. For the Nos. 10, 100, 1000, etc.,
the number of the decimal place occupied by the first significant figure in the
teciprocal is equal to the number of ciphers in the No. ; but for all other Nos. it
is equal to the number of the digrUs in the integral portion of the No. Thus :
Becip 148.7 = .0069.., etc. Here the number of digits in the integral portion
(143) of the No. is 8, and the first significant figure (6) of the reciprocal occupies
tin Hdrd decimal place.

To find tbe sonaro or eabo of any whole nnmber endlMP
wltb cipbers. First, omit all the final ciphers. Take from the table w
sqiMire or oub« (as the oaae maj be) of the rest of tbe number. To tbU tquare add twice M mt.nf
ciphers as there were final ciphers in the original number. To the cube add three times as many at
m the orlgioal number. Thus, for 905003; 9053 = 819025. Add twice 3 cipher*, obtaiuiog 8190250000.
For iH)5803, go&3 = 741217625. Add 3 times 2 ciphers, obtaining 741217625000000.

To find Square or Cube Roots of larire numbers not eoa
tained in tlie column off numliers of tlie table.
Booh roots mmj MmetimM be taken at onoe from the table, b7 merelr regarding the oolnmns of
powen as being oolamne of namber* ; and thoie of nambera aa being those of roota. Thna, if tte
•q ft of 9BI81 ia reqd, ilrat iiiid that nnmber in the column of tquaru ; and opposite to it, In th«
eolumn of oamben, ii its sq rt 160. For the evhe rt of 857876. find that namber in the eolumn of
eu5M ; and opposite to it, in the eol of numbers, is its onbe rt 95. When the ezaot nnmber is not con
tained in the oolnmn of sqnares, or onbes, as the ease may be, we maj nse instead the nnmber nearest
to it, if no great aoouraey is reqd. But when a oonsiderablo degree of aoonraoj is necessary, tk*
following Tery oorreet methods may be need.
For the squfufe root.
This rale applies both to whole nnmbers. and to those which are parlor (not wholly) decimal. Flntt

The column headed " 12 n " facilitates the use of the table in oases where,
for instance, the quantity is giveti in inoheSf and where it is desired to obtain
the % power of the same quantity in feet. Thus, suppose we have a % inch
pipe, and we require the % power of the diameter in feet. Find ^ (the
diameter, in, inches) in thecolumn headed/' 12 n," opposite which, in the column
headed *'n," is 0.041666 (the diameter. In feet), and, in column headed "n%,'»
0.00035 (the % power of the diamet«r, 0.041666, in feet).
Values of n, ending in or in 5, are exact values. All others end in repeat

78^ 79 gives logs of numbers up to 1000. The longer table, pages 80 to 91,

(2) The mantissa for each even number fh>m 1750 to 3750
(3) The mantissa for each ^th number from 3750 to 10000
(8) Logs of numbers Intermediate of those given in the tables are
found by simple proportion. The procedure necessary in these cases is
explained in the examples given in connection with the tables, but it will
often be found sufficiently accurate to use the log of the nearest number
given in the table, neglecting interpolation.
Tbe antilog^ariinm or nnm log^ {numerus logarithmt) is the num
ber correspondinfT to a given logarithm. Thus, log. 2 = 0.80 108, and
antilog 0.30 l(fe = 2.
(9) Mnltiplicatlon. To multiply together two or more numbers, add
together their logs and find the antilog of their sum. See t'roportion
(11) below.
(10) AiTision. Subtract the l<^ of the divisor from that of the dividend,
and find the antilog of the remainder. See Proportion (11) below.
The reciprocal of any number, n, = . See page 62. Thus, recip 2 =>
w
 = 0.5. Hence, log recip n = log  = log 1 — log n = — log n.
Similarly, log recip — = log — — — = o — log .
Since n«i = ni =  , n^i = n« = " = 1, n^^ =ni =  , and noa = n«
= j it follows that log wi = log = log recip n ; log n* = log zj = "^og
recip 7*2, etc. •

(19) Instead of subtracting the log of the divisor, we may add its coloipa
ritlim or arithmetical complement, which is log of reciprocal
of divisor, = — log divisor = 10 — log divisor — 10. Thus :.
1523 _
3.382 X 8.655
Log 1523 = 3.18 270
Colog 8.382 = 10 — log 3.332 — 10 = 10 — 0.52 270 — 10 = 9.47 730 — 10
Colog 8.655 = 10 — log 8.655 — 10 = 10 — 0.93 727 — 10 = 9.06 273 — 10
Sum of logs and cologs = 21.72 273 — 20
= Log 52.813 = 1.72 273
The true value is 52.8114 +
(13) Involution, or findinf^ powers of numbers. Multiplv log of
given number by the exponent of the required power, and find the anti
log of the product. Thus : 36^ = ?
Log 36 = 1.55 630. 1.55 630 X 3 = 4.66 890. Antilog 4.66 890 = 46656.
(14) Evolution, or finding roots of numbers. Divide log of given
number by exponent of required root, and find antilog of quotient. Thus :
s
V46656 = ? Log 46656 = 4.66 890. 4.66 89053 = 1.55 680. Antilog 1.55 630 = 36.
(tJi) In finding roots of numbers, if the given number is a whole or mixed
72
LOGARITHMS.
number, the division of the log is performed in the usual way, as in the
preceding example, even where, as in that example, the characteristic ia
not exactly divisible by the exponent of the required root. But if tl&e
namber is a fraction, and the characteristic of ita log therefore nega
tive, and if the characteristic is not exactly divisible by the exponent,
division in the usual wav would give erroneous results. In such cases we
may add a suitable number to the mantissa and deduct the same number
from the characteristic, thusj to find Vo.00048. Log 0.00048 = 4.68 124 =
0.68 124 — 4 = 2.68 124 — 6 = 6 + 2.68 124, which, divided by 8, = 2 + 0.89 375
= 2.89 375 = log 0.0783. Or, see (16) and (17).
(16) To avoid inconvenience from the use of negatiTe character
istics, it is customary to modify them by adding 10 to them, afterward
deducting each such 10 from the sum, etc., of the logarithms. Thus : in
multiplying or dividing 7425 by 0.25, we have
Multiplying. Dividing,
either log 7425 = 3.87 070 = 8.87 070
log 0.25 = 1.39 794 = 1.39 794
3.26 864 4.47 276
or log 7425 = 3.87 070 = 3.87 070
modified log 0.25 = 9.39 794 — 10 = 9.89 794 — 10
13.26 864 — 10 6.47 276 + 10
= 3.26 864 = 4.47 276
In most cases the actual process of deducting the added tens may be
neglected, the nature of the work usually being such that an error so great
as that arising from such neglect could hardly pass unnoticed.
(17) To dlTide a modified loiparithm, add to it such a multiple of
10 as will make the sum exceed the true log by 10 times the divisor. Thus :
to divide log 0.00048 by 3. Log 0.00048 = 4.68 124, which, divided by 3, =
2.89 375. See (15). •
Log 0.00048= 4.68 12 4
Modified log 0.00048 = 6.68 124 — 10
Add 2 X 10 20 — 20
Dividing by 3) 26.68 124 — 30
we obtain 8.89 375 — 10, which is 2.89 375 modified.
(18) Except 1, any number can (like 10) be made the base of a system of
logarithms. The base of the byperbolic, Napierian, or natural
lograritiims, much used in steam engineering, is
1 + 1 + 1^2 + lX^3 + 1X2X3X4 + ' " ' " = ^'^ «^ +
and is called « (epsilon) or e.
M = logi oC (common log e) = 0.43 429 ; ^ =log « 10 (hyperbolic log 10) =2.30 250.
For any number, n,
loge n = — 1^ = 2.30259 logio n ; logjo n = M loge n = 0.43429 loge n
(19) Whatever may be the base chosen for a system of logs, the man>
tissas of the logs of any given numbers bear a constant ratio to each
other. Thus, in any system of logs, log 4 is always = 2 X log 2, and
=• K X log 8, etc., etc.
(20) liOffarithmic sines, tansrents, etc. of angles are the logs of
the sines, tangents, etc. of those angles. Thus, sin 80° = 0.5000000, and log
sin 30° = log. 0.5 = 1.69 897, usually written 9.69 897 — 10, or simply 9.69 897.
(ai) Since no power of a positive number can be negative, negative num
bers properly have no logs ; but operations with neyatlve nnm
bern ran nevertheless be performed by means of logs, by treating all the
numbers as positive and taking care to use the proper sign ,+ or — , in the
result.

(1) By means of a logarithmic chart or diagram (often miscalled lo«i
rtthmic crosssection paper) logarithmic operations are performed graphi
cally, and by means of the slide rule mechanically, without reference
to the logarithms themselves *. But see t. P 76. Their use greatly facili*
tales many hydraulic and other engineering computations.
(•) The ratio between the mantissas of the logs of any given numbers
being constant for all systems of logs, the ratio between the distances laid
off on the chart or slide rule is the same for all systems, and the use of the
chart or rule is independent of the system of logs used.

according to the logs (0.30 103, 0.47 712, etc.) of 2, 3. etc. Ordinary
"squared" or cross seetlon mper may of course be used for loga
ritmnio i>lotting, by plotting on it the loo9 instead of their Not. Lines
representing Nos. may be drawn in their proper places as dedired.
(3) As ordinarUv constructed.^ the slide rule consists essentially of
four scales. A, B, G, and D, see (17), scales A and D being placed on the
** rule," while B and C are placed upon the sliding piece, or " sUde." As
in the logarithmic chart, see (2), the scales are divided loearithmically
(see figure), but marked with the numberB corresponding to the logs. Scales
A and B are equal, as are also scales C and D, but a given length on A or B
represents a logarithm, twice as great as on C or D. See (4). Hence, each
number marked on A is the aquare of the coinciding number marked on £>.
(4) A single logarithmic scale is usually numbered from 1 to 10, or from
10 to 100; but it may be taken as representing any series embracing the
niunbers from 10* to 10**+ ^; as from 0.1 to 1.0 (n = —1); or from 1.0 to
10.0 (n "» 0); or from 10.0 to 100.0 (n = 1); or — etc., etc. Here n and
n + 1 are the cliairaeteristlcs of the corresponding logarithms.
A single scale would therefore serve for all values, from to infinity ;
but for convenience several contiguous scales are sometimes added, as in
the log chart*.
When a line reaches the limit of a square, the next square may be
entered* or the same square mav be reentered at a point directly opposite.

Note that the numbers, marked on any given scale, must be taken as 10
times the corresponding numbers marked In the next scale preceding, and
the characteristics therefore as being greater by 1, and vice verm. Thus, in
our figure, log 1.5 + log 2 = 11.5 + 12 = log 8 = distance 1M. But
log 15 + log 20 = (11.5 + 110) + (12 + 110), so that the characteristic
ofthe resulting log is greater by 2, and the 3 representing the product of 15
and 20 is really in the second square to the right of that shown. In finding
powers and roots, remember that multiplying or dividing the number by
0.1, 10, 100, etc. a. e., changing the charactensttc of its log), changes also the
mantissa of the log of its power or root. Thus, 1^277 = 1.39 . . , (log = 0.14 379) ;
but T>'27'== 3, aog = 0.47 712) and 1^270 = 6.46 . . , (log = 0.81 023). The
chart or rule gives aU such possible roots, and care must be taken to select
the proper one. Most operations exceed the limits of one scale, and fi&cility
in using either instrument depends largely upon the ability to pass readily
and correctly from one scale to another. This ability is best gained by prac
tice, aided by a thorough grasp of the principles involved. Where several
successive operations are to be performed, a sliding runner or marker
(furnished with each slide rule) is used, in order to avoid error in shifting
the slide. Detailed instructions are usually famished with the slide rule.
(*) A common form of chart has four or more similar squares Joined
together. See (4). Our figure represents one complete square, with por
tions of adjoining squares. For actual use, both charts and slide rules
are, of course, much more finely subdivided than in our figures, which are
given merely to illustrate the principles. Carefully engraved charts are
published by Mr. John R. Freeman, Providence. R. I.
(X) Other forms embodying the same principle are : The " Reaction Scale
and Gteneral Slide Rule," bv W. H. Breithaupt, M. Am. Soc. C. E. ; Sexton's
Omnimeter or Circular Slide Rule, bv Thaddens Norris : The Goodchild
Computing Chart ; The Thacher Calculating Machine or Cylindrical Slide

In the figure, we obtain the distance 13 = .47 712 = the m

numbers giving the products 2x, 2x, etc., on 1«Y; while similar lines,
drawn below 1H and through 2, S, etc., on 1X, give. values of ^^ ?, etc.,
respectively. If these lines ^^ «• etc., be produced downward, they will
cut 1Y (produced) at 0.5 (= }4), 0^ . . (= V^, etc!, respectively * See (4).
(8) Powers and roots. If a line z^ be drawn through 1, at an angle
s — s
So 1X, whose tangent, f^ is 2, it will give values of z*. Thus, the ver
tical through 3, on 1X, cuts the line x* opposite 9 (= 3*) on 1Y. Simi
larly, line x^ (tangent = 3) gives values of «' ; and line ^x (tangent = *^
gives values of a;' <*' T/'ir See (4).
(9) Any equation of the form y = C.x" in which log y = log C + n log «,
(such as : area of circle = ir radius*), is represented, on a logarithmic chart,
by a straight line so drawn that the tangent T of its angle with 1X is = n,
and intersecting 1Y at that point which represents the value C. Thus,
the line marked v x^, (tangent = 2) is a line of squares, and, being drawn
through IT (= 3.14. .) on 1Y, it gives values of w x*. Thus, for a circle of
radius 2, we find, in the line n x^ over 2, a point L opposite E, or 12.57. . . . the
area of such circle.t Conversely, having area = 12.57. . . , we obtain, from
the diagram, radius = 2.
(10) If a chart is to be used for solving many equations of a single
kind, such asy = C a:", where C is a variable coefficient, and n a constant
exponent, parallel lines, forming the proper angle with 1X, should be perma
nently ruled across the sheet at short intervals.
(11) For any log, as 18 (= log 3), we may substitute its equal. MN
or 3N, extending to the central diagonal line 1H, marked x; and then,
since, for instance, 11.2 = NQ, 13 = NK, etc., we may add any log
(as 13) by moving upward from line x (as from N to K) or to the right,
and siw^act any log (as 11.2) by moving downward (as from N to Q) or to
the l^. This facilitates the performance of a series of operations.
Thus:
To multiply 1.5 by 2 (= 3). by 3 (= 9), and divide by 2 (= 4.5).
FG = 1F = log 1.5. Add GJ = 12 = log 2 ; sum = FJ = log 3 = 13 =
MN. Add NK = 13 = log 3 ; sum = MK = log 9 = 19 = 9R. Subtract
R_T = 12 = log 2 ; remainder = 9T = log 4.5.
For an example of the application of this principle to engineering prob
lems see " Diagrams for proportioning wooden beams and posts," by Carl
S. Fogh, " Engineering News^', Sept. 27, 1894.
(la) If eipatiTe exponents. If a: is in the dm«or, the line will slope
in the opposite direction, or downward from left to right. Thus, line 42
leaving 1Y, at 4, and forming, with 1X, the angle X, 2. 4, with tangent
= ^^ ' ■ • ^ = — 2, represents the equation : j/ =  , = 4 x*.
(IS) If the lines of products, powers, and roots, C «, a?», and y^ etc.,
be drawn at angles whose tangents are less by 1 than those of the angles
formed by the corresponding lines in our figure, the resmts may be read
directly from oblique lines drawn parallel to 22. Lines (C x) giving multi
ples and submultiples of the first power of x then become horwmial lines
(14)" Powers and roots by tbe slide rale. Scales C and D being
twice as large as scales A and B, these scales, with their ends coinciding,
form a table of squares and of square roots. See (3). By moving the slide
we solve equations of the forms jy = (C x)^ and y = C x^. Thus, with the
(*) In each of these lines, the product of the two numbers at its ends is
= 10. Thus, in line 2A. 2 X 5 = 10 ; in 3K, 8 X 3.38 ... = 10, etc. The
chart thus furnishes a table of reciprocals. . ,

not to be expected beyond the third or fourth significant flgure.

slide M shown, each nmnber oa A is «= the sqaftre of (1.6 X the coinciding
number on G) ; while, with 1 on B opposite 1.5 on A, each number on A is =
1.5 X the square of the coinciding number on C.
(15) Since x» = *" X x, we find cubes or third powers by placing the
slide with 1 on B opposite x^ on A ({. e., opposite x on D), see (3), and read
ing «■ f^om A opposite x on B. Thus, 1.5* = ?. Place 1 on B opposite 1.5 on
D ; t, «., opposite 1.5* (= 2.25) on A. Then, on A, opposite 1.5 on B, find
8.875 = 1.5*. Or, turn the slide end for end. Place 1.5 on B opposite 1.5
on D, t. e., opposite 1.5* = 2.25 on A. Then, adding log 1.5 (on B) to log 2.25
on A, we find 3.375 (= 1.5') on A opposite 1 on B.
(16) Conversely, to find v'iT we shift the slide (in its normal position)
until we find, on B, opposite x on A, the same number as we have on I) op
posite 1 on 0, and this number will be =° f/3c7 . Or, turn the slide end
for end,* place 1 on C opposite x on A, and find, on B, a number wl^ich
coincides with its equal on D. This number is = i^zT See also (17), (18).
(17) On the back of the slide is usually placed a scale of logs (see scale
shown below the rule in figure) and two scales of angles, marked " S " and
" T " respectively, for finding sines of angles greater than 0*^ 34' . . . ", and
taxigents of angles between 5° 42' . . . " and 45°.
(18) Placing 1 on C opposite any number a; on D (with slide in its normal
pofiitiou), log X IS read from the scale of logs by means of an index on the
Sack of the rule. The logs may be used in fitidlng powers and roots.

S, and tangents on C. Or, invert the slide, placine S under A, and T over
D. with the ends of the scales coinciding. Then the numbers on A and ]>
are the sines and tangents, respectively, of the angles on S and T.
Caution. Sines of angles less than 5° 45' ... " are less than 0.1.
Tangents " " betw. 5° 42' . . . " and 45° are betw. 0.1 and 1.0.
(90) On the back of the rule is usually printed a table of ratios of num
bers in common use, for convenience in operating with the slide rule. Thus :
diameter 118 U. S. gallons 3 .. . ......
circumference = »5 = "i^nl^ ' 25 <"" * «''«° ""*""*>' of water).
(31) Soaping the edges of the slide and the groove in which it runs, will
often cure sticking, wnich is apt to be very annoying. If the slide is too
loose, the groove may be deepened, and small springs, cut from narrow
steel tape, inserted between it and the edge of the slide.
(*) With the slide thus reversed, and with the ends of the scales coin
ciding, the numbers on A and Bare reciprocals (page 62), as are also
those on C and D.

QEOMETBI.
I^lnes, Fifiriire*, Solldii, defined. Strictly speaking a geometrical 11b«
ii limply length, or disUnoe. The Unes we draw on paper have not only length, bat breadth and
thiokneas ; still they are the most oonTeoient Bymbol we can employ for denoting a geometrioAl line.
Stralirlit lines are also called rlpb t lines. A vertical line is one that points
toward the center of the earth ; and a horisontnl one is at right angles to a
vert one. A. plane finrnre is merely any flat surface or area entirely enclosed
by lines either straight or ourred ; which are ealled its oatline, boandary, oiroomf, or pcnphery. We
often oonfoond the ootline with the tig itself a* when we speak of drawing eirolee, sqnans, «e ; for
we aotaally draw only their outlines. Oeometrieally speaking, a Og has length and braadth only ; n*
thickness. A solid is any body ; it has length, oreadth, and thickness.
Geometrically nlmllar figs or solias, are not necessarily of the same
slse; but only of precisely the same sbape. Thus, any two squares are, scien
tifically speaking, similar to each other ; so also any two circles, eobes, 4ko, no matter how diflbrenft
ther may be in aiie. When they are not only of the same shape, bat of the same siie, they are said
to Ibe similar, and eqaal.
The qaantltles or lines are to each other simply as their leng^ttas; but
the quantities, or areas, or surfaces of similar flipnreSy are as, or in proportion
to, the squares of any one of the corresponding lines or aides which enclose the
figures, or which may he drawn upon them : and the quantities, or solidities of
similar solids, are as the enbes of any of the corresponding lines which form
their edges, or the figures by which th^ are enclosed.
Bem«~Simple as the following operations appear, it is only by care, and good instmrnenta, that
they are made to give accurate results. Several of them can be much better performed by means of a
metallic triangle haying one perfectly accurate right angle. In the field, the (apellne, ehain, or a
■Masuringrod will take the place of the dividera and ruler used indoors.
Te divide a si wen line, a b, into two equal pmrUu
From Its ends a and h as centers, and with any rad greater than onehalf of • ft,
describe the area e and d, and Join e/. If the line a & is very long, first lay on
eqaal dists a o and i g, each way from tba ends, so as to approach conveniently
near to each other ; and then proceed as if o y were the line lo be divided. Ov
ineaiare a b by a seale, and thns aaoertain its eenter.
To divide a siwen line, «» a, into anj'
ffiven number of equal parts.
From m and n draw any .two parallel lines m o and n c,
te an' indefinite dist ; and on them, tmrn m and n step off th«
reqd number of eqaal parts of any convenient length : final ,
ly. Join the eorresponding points thus stepped on. Or only
one line, as mo, may be drawn and stepped oif, as to «;
then Join «n; and draw the other short lines parallel to It.
To divide a ^iren line, fa n, into two parts wbieb sball liawo
a yiven proportion t^ eacb otber.
This is done on the same principle as the last ; thns, let the proportion be as 1 to 8; First draw
any line m o ; and with any convenient opening of the dividers, make m s equal to one step ; and ••
equal to three steps. Join « n ; and parallel to it draw z c. Then m e is to c n as I is to 3.

Aniples. When two straight, or right lines meet each other at any lncUn»
tion, the inclination is called an anicle; and is measured by the d^n^ees con
tained in the arc of a circle described from the point of meeting as a center. Since all circles, whether
large or small, are supposed to be divided into SCO degrees, it follows that any number of degrees of a
small circle will measure the same degree of inclination as will the same number of a large one.
When two straight lines, as o n and a h, meet in such a manner that the inclination o n a is eqaal
to the inclination o n 6, then the two lines are said to be
perpendienlar to each other; and the angles on a and
onh, are called rlgbt angles ; and are each measd by, or
are equal to, W>, or onefourth part of the circumf of a circle. Any angle,
tMced, smaller than a right angle, is called acute or sharp ;
and one c «/, laraer than a right angle, is called obtuse, or
blant. When one line meets another, as in the first Fig on opposite page, the two angles on tha
same side of either line are called contiguous, or a^iyacent. Thus, vus and
* u w are adjacent ; also tut and tuw ; tut audit uv ; vout and wuv. The sum of two a<!yaoaat
angles is always equal to two right augled ; or to 1H0°. Therefore, if we know the number of de*
frees contained in one of them, and subtract it from 180°, we obtain the other.

When two straight lines crow each other, forming four
angles, either pair of those angles which point in exactly
opposite directions are called opposite, or irertlcal
angles ; thus, the pair a « < and vuw are .opposite an
gles ; also the pair suv and t u C9. The opposite anglet
of any pair are always equal to each other.
When a straight line a b crosses two parallel lines e <2,
«/, the alternate angles which form a kind of Z are
equal to each other. Thus, the angles don and on/ are
equal : as are also con and one. Also the sum of the
two internal angles on the same side of a 6, is equal to two
right angles, or 180°; thus, co n + on/ =» 180°; also
don \ one = 180°.
An interior angle*
•
In any fig, Is any angle formed intid* of that fig, by the meet
ing of two of its sides, as the angles c a b, a b c, b e a, of this
triangle. All the interior angles of any straightlined figure of
any number of sides whaterer, are together eqaal to twice al
many right angles minus four, as the figure has sides. Thus, a
triangle has 3 sides ; twice that number is 6 ; and 6 right angles,
or 6 X 9(P=b4(P; ffom which take 4 right angles, or 360° ; and
there remain 18(P, which is the number of degrees in eraty
plane, or straightlined triangle. This principle furnishes ao
easy means of testing our measurements of the angles of any
fig; for if the sum of all our measurements does not agree with
ihc torn, given bj th« mie, It is a proof that we have committed some error.
An exterior angle
Of any straightlined figure, is any angle, as a & d, formed by the meeting of
any side, as a b, with the prolongation of an adjacent side, as c b; so likewise
the angles c a a and b c to. All the exterior angles of any slraightlined fig,
no matter how many sides it may have, amount to 860° ; but, In (he case of
a reentering angle, as gij, the interior angle, g ij, exceeds 180°, and the
"exterior" angle, g i x, being = 180° — interior angle, is negative. Thus
ab d + 6ctofca« = 360° ; and yhj+xji — gix + igie = 380°.
Angles, as a, b, c, g, h, and^, which point outward, are called •alientl.
From any given point, p, on a line « t,

From p, with any oonvenient opening of the dividers, step off the

Ahan half o g, describe the two short arcs b and c ; and Join a p.
Or still better, describe four arcs, and join a y.
Or from p with any conyenient scale describe two
•hori area g and e either one of them with a radius 3, and the other
with a rad 4. Then from g with rad 6 describe the arc b. Join p a.
tS tbe point p is at one end of the line,
or very near it,

A pamllelogTam is any fouraided BtraightUBed flg<
ure whose opposite sides are equal, as a b c d ; or a
square, &c. Any line drawn across a parallelogram
between 2 opposite angles, is called a diagoneU^ as a &
orb d. A diag divides a parallelogram into two equu
parts ; as does also any line m n drawn through the
center of either diag ; and moreover, the line m «•
itself is div into two equal parts by the diag. Two
diags bisect each other ; they also divide the parallel
ogram into four triangles of equal areas. The sum
if the two angles at the ends of any one side is = 180^ ; thus, dab + abc^aboi
hed== ISfP; and the sum of the four angles, dab,abc^bed^cdaf= 360^.
The sum of the squares of the four sides, is equal to the sum of the squares of the
two diags.

lo half the chord a n, of the aro a 5 n, which is equal to twice the aro a b ; or, the sine of an angle ia
•lw»n equal to half the obord of twice that angle; and Tioe vena, the ohord of an angle is alwajt
a Ml to twioe the sine of half the angle,
e sine < c of an angle ( c b, or of an are
fa ft, of iW, is equal to the rad of the aro
or of the oirele ; and this sine of 90° is
y ter than that of any other angle.
Cosine e < of an angle acb^
Is that part of the rad which lies between
the sine and the oenter of the oirole. It
is always equal to the sine y a of the
complement tcaotaeb; or of what a
e b wants of being 90°. The prefix co be
fore sines, Ao, means oompiemeni ; thus,
cosine means sine of the complement.
Tersed sine «b of any angle
• e 6, is that part of the diam whieh lies
between the sine, and the outer end 6.
It is T«ry common, but erroneous, when
■peaking of bridges, Ao, to call the rise
or height « fr of a caronlar areb a 6 n, its
Tersed sine; while it is actually the versed
■ineofonly half the arch. This absurdity
•hoald.oease ; for the word rise or height
is not only more ezpressiTe,but is correct.

the prolongation of the rad which forms
die other leg. This last rad thns pro
lonfBd, that is, c w, or e d, as the case may
W, is the secant of the angle
• e i. The angle (eft being loppeaed
tobe equal to 90°, the angle tea becomes the complement of the angle a o ft, or what a e ft wanta
of being 90° ; and the sine y a of this complement ; its versed sine t y ; its tangent < o; and its seoaat
e o, are respeotirely the eosine, corersed sine ; cotangent; and oo«ecant, of the angle a e ft. Or,
viee versa, the sine, 4o, of aeb, are the cosine, Ac, of tea; because the an^le a e ft is the oomple*
ment of the angle tea. When the rad e ft, e a, or c t, is assumed to be equal to unity, or 1, the cor>
responding sines, tangents, Ac. are called natural ones ; and their several lengths for diff angles,
for said rad of unity, have been calculated ; constituting the wellknown tables of nat sines, fto. In
any eirele whose rad is either larger or smaller than 1, the sines, Ac, of the angles will be in the
amme proportion larger or smaller than those in the tables, and are consequently found . by mult tlM
■iae. M, of the table, by said larger or smaller rad.
The followinir table of natural sines, Ac. does not contain nat
Tened sines, coversed sines, secants, nor cosecants, but these may be found thus ;
Cnr any angle not exceeding 90 degrees.
Vened 9bu. From I take the nat cosine.
Ooverted Sine. From 1 take the nat sine.
Seeant. Divide 1 by the nat cosine.
OoaeeaiAt. Divide I by the nat sine.
Wmr «Bftfe« ezeee4bur M^ t to find the sine, eosine, tangent, ootang, secant, or coseo, (but not
the versed sine or coversedsine), take the angle trota 180° : if between 180° and 370° take 180° fkom
the angle : if bet 270° and 360°, Uke the angle from 860°. Then in each ease take trom the tebie the
sine, ooeine, tang, or ootang of the remainder. Find Its leoant or coseo as directed above. Far the
^ ttnm ; if between 90(^and 270°, add cosine to 1 ; if bet 270° and 360°, take eosine from 1. (The
ddem needs sines, Ae, ezoeoding 180°.
To find tbo nat sine* cosine, tans, secant* Tersed sine, ^fcc,
of an anvle containing seconds. First find that due to the given deg
sad min ; tbea the next greater one. Take their diff. Then as 60 see are to this diff, so are the see
only of the given angle to a dec quantity to be added to the one first taken out
if it ia a sine, tang, secant, dec ; or to be subtracted from it if it is a cosine,
cotang, cosecant, &c.
The tjanfpents in the table are strict triiponometrical ones ; that is,
tsBcents to given anglts ; and which must extend to meet the secants of the angles
towbich they belong. Ordinary, or ipeometrical tangents, as those on
p 162, may extend as far as we please. In the field practice of railroad
earvea* two trigonometrical tangents terminate where they meet each other.
Iseb oftnese tangs is the tang of half the curve. It is usually, but improperly,
called '' the tang of the eurM. ' ** Apex dist of the curve," as suggested by Mr
Shank, woald be better.

TABUS OF CHOBDS.
143
below, fkinkisbes the meaoBoflaying down angles on
paper more accurately than by an ordinary protractor. To do this, after having drawn
and measured the first side (say ac) of the figure that is
to be plotted ; from its end c as a center, describe an arc
ny of a circle of sufficient extent to subtend the angle at
that point. The rad en with which the arc is described
should be as gjeat as conyenience will permit ; and it is to
be assumed as unity or 1 ; and must be decimally divided,
and subdivided, to be used as a scale for laying down the
chords taken fh>m the table, in which their lengths are
given in parts of said rad 1. Having described the arc, find
in the table the length of the chord n t corresponding to
the angle act. Let us suppose this angle to be 46^; then
we find that the tabular chord is .7654 of our rad 1. There
fore fiom n we lay oif the chord nt, equal to .7654 of our radiusscale ; and the lint
et drawn through the point t will form the reqd angle act of 46^. And so at each
angle. The degree of accuracy attained will evidently depend on the length of the
rad, and the neatness of the drafting. The method becomes preferable to the com
mon protractor in proportion as the lengths of the sides of the angles exceed the rad
of the protractor. With a protractor of 4 to 6 ins rad, and with sides of angles not
much exceeding the same limits, the protractor will usually be preferable. The di
viders in boxes of instruments are rarely fit for accurate arcs of more than about 6
ins diam. In practice it is not necessary to actually describe the whole arc, but
merely the portion near t, as well as can be Judged by eye. We thus avoid much use
of the Indiarubber, and dulling of the pencilpoint. For larger radii we may dis
pense with the dividers, and use a straight strip of paper with the length of the rad
marked on one edge ; and by laying it from c toward «, and at the same time placing
another Jtrip (witii one edge divided to a radiusscale) from n toward t, we can
by trial find their exact point of intersection at the required point t. In such mat*
ters, practice and some Ingenuity are very essentlial to satisfactory results. We can'
not devote more space to the subject.

to a, say liP ; also the angles o n, say 80°. These two anises
added together, give the angle a on, 42°. Kow. in the small

are equal to 180p, if we subtract the angles ota <90O), and s e «
(12°) from 180°. the rem (78°) will be the angle o a « or o a «.
Therefore, in the triangle one, we have one side o a; and twe

we may obtain also the position or direction of tbe inacces

therefrom deduce that of ao; and thus be enabled to ran

Let a c 1m the choordy and o b the height, of the required arc, as
laid down om the drawing. On a separate sMp af paper, «• m n, drawa c. o h. and aft.
•Ibo b e, parallel to the chord a c. It Is well to make b«,and b e, each a little longer
than a b. Then cut off the paper earefhUy along the lines 8 h and 6 «, so as to leare
renaaining only the strip tabemn. Now, if the straight sides s b and 6 e be applied
to tlie drawing, so that any narts of them shall touch at the same time the points a
and 6, or b and e, the point h on the strip will be in ttie circumference of the arc,
and may be prldced off. Thus, any number of points in the arc may be found, and
afterward united to form the corre.
31d Hi ottiodt Draw tteOMn a b; the rise re; and a 0^6 a From c with radios

c C cL DiTide eC, eZ, er, each into half as many equal parts as the curre is to be divided
into. Draw the lines 61, 52, 2>3; and a4, a5, a6, extended to meet the first ones at
e, «, A. Then e, «, A, are points in one half the curve. Then for the other half, draw
simUar lines flrom a to 7» 8, 9; and others from b to meet them, as before. Trace

make o c equal a o, then will o be, rwj nearly, the point at which tangents fh>m th«
ends of the arc will meet. Also the muUlle oxdlnate n, ot thm ikmlt uno ob,or
ott will be approximately 3^ of a ft, the middle ordinate of the whole arc. Indeed,
this last obserTadon will apply near enough for many approximate uses even if the
arc be as great as 46°; for if in that case we take ^ of o a fbr the ordinate n, n wlU
then be but 1 part in 1U3 too small; and therefore the principle may often be used
in drawings, for finding points in a curve of too great radius to be drawn by the
diTiders ; for in the same manner, V^ of n will be the middle ordinate for the arc n h
or n o; and so on to any extent. Below will be f>uud a table bjr nrldelk tbe

accuracy when required for more exact drawings.

The fifth column is of use for finding points for drawing arcs too \argB fbr tiM
beamcompass, on the principle giren above. In even the largest cfllce drawings it
will not be necessary to use more than the first three decimals of the fifth column ;
and after the arc is subdirided into parts smaller than about 86° each, the first two
decimals .25 will generally su£Bce. OriginaL

To nse this table, div the height or rise of the are, by its span or ehord. The qnet

heights ; and Uke out the oorresponding number ft*om the ool. of lengths. Halt this
number by the actoal span. The prod will be thereqd lenRth.
When the height becomes .500 of the chord fas at the end of the table) the ellipse

pencil, which in every position, as at n, org,
keeps the string/' n /, or /' gf stretched all

Note. Owing to the diflDoulty of keeping
the string equally stretched, this method is
not as satisfactory as the following.
Bulb 2. On the edge of a strip of paper

The eommoii or eonle iiarabola,

height or axta ; b its apex or vertex i any line e s, or o a. Fig S, drawn from theonrve, to, and at right
angles to, the axis, is an ordinate ; and the part s 6, or a i, of the axis, between the ordinate and the
apax b, is an abscissa. The /ooms of a parabola is that point in the axis, where the abaoisaa 6 «, is
oqual to onehalf of the ord e ». The dist from apex to focus, called the focal diet, is found thus:
square auy oid, as o a; div this sauare br the abscissa i a of that ord; diy the quot by 4. The
Cature of the parabola is such that its absoiBsas, as 6 s, 6 a, fto, are to each other as, or in proportion

by means of the rule and table given for that pur*

the parabola, by its height c d or e a. Look for
the qnot in the column of bases in the following
table, and take from the table the correspondiag
multiplier. Mult the length of the eireolar aro by
this ; the prod will be the length of are a d b, or
n a cl, as the case may be. For bases of parabolas
less than .05 of the hdght, or greater than lOtimea
the height, the multiplier is 1, and is very approx>

This rule may be used for aacertainins beforehand, the Quantity of earth to
be removed from a "borrow pit." The irregular surface of the ground is first
staked out in squares; (the tapeline being stretched horizontally ^ when meas*
uring o£f their sides). These squares should be of such
a suse that without material error each of them may be
considered to be a plane surface, either horizontal or in
clined. The depth of the horizontal bottom of the pit
being determined on, and the levels being taken at every
^b corner of the squares, we Hre thereby furnished with the
lengths of the four parallel vertical edges of each of the
resulting Arnstums of earth. In Figs 10^ y may be sup
posed to represent one of these Arustums.
If the frustdm is that of an irregular 4sided, or polyg
onal prism, first divide its cross section perpendicular to \ts sides, into tri
angles, by lines drawn frpm any one of its angles, as a, Fisr 10^. Calculate the
area of each of these triangles separately ; then consider the entire frustum to
be made up of so many triangular ones; calculate the volume
(•;\ of each of these by the preceding rule for triangular frustnms;
and add them together, for the volume of the entire frustum.

and whose sections parallel to the ends
are everywhere the same as the ends.
Hence there are circular cylinders, ellip
P tic cylinders (or cylindroids) and many
others ; but when not otherwise expressea,
the circular one is understood. A right
cylinder is one whose ends are perpen
dicular to its sides, as Fig. 11 ; when otner
Fig. 11. Fig. 12. wise, it is oblique, as Fig 12. If the ends
of a right circular cylinder be cut so as to
make it oblique, it becomes an elliptic one ; oecause then both its ends, and aJl
sections parallel to them, are ellipses. An oblique circular cylinder seldom
occurs ; it may be conceived of by imagining the two ends of Fig 12 to be circlet^
united by straight lines forming its curved sides.

A pjrainid, Fin. 1, 2, 8. Is any solid which has, for Its base, a plane figure
of any number of sides, ana, for its sides, plane triangles all terminating at one
point d, called its apex, or top. When the base is a regular figure, the pyramid
Is regular ; otherwise irr^uCar.
A cone, Figs. 4 and 5, is a solid, of which th6 base is a curved figure; and
which may be considered as made or generated by a line, of which one end is
stationary at a certain point d, called the apex or top, while the line is being
carried around the circumference of the base, which may be a circle, ellipse,
or other curve. A cone may also be regarded as a pyramid with an infinite
numoer of sides.
The axis of a pyramid or cone. Is a straight line eZ o In Figs. 1, 2, 4 ; and diiA
Fi^s. 8 and 5, from the apex e2, to the center of gravity of the base. When the
aj^s is perpendicular to the base, as In Figs. 1, 2, 4, the solid is said to be a right
one ; when otherwise, as Figs. 3. 5, an oblique one. When the word cone is used
alone, the right circular cone. Fig. 4, is understood. If such a cone be cut, as at
1 1, obliquely to its base, the new base 1 1 will be an ellipse; and the cone dtt
becomes an oblique elliptic one. Fig. 6 will represent either an obUtiue <^ular
eoiie, or an oblique elliptic one, according as its base Is a circle or an ellipse.

of which, a straight line may be drawn nom one of tho two parallel ends to ^s

other or not.
Tbla doflnltlon iroiild Imolndo the cube and all other parallelopipeds;
the prism : the cylinder (considered as a prism baring an infinite namber of sides);
the pyramid and cone (in whieb one of the two parallel endl^ i« theonelbiminiftiio
apex, is considered to be infinitely small), and their frnstams with top and boso
parallel ; and the wedge.
But the use of the term prlanaold is frequently restxietod to sizeided aolidd,
in which the two parallel ends are unequal quadrangles; and the connecting plane^
trapezoids; as in Figs. 1 and 2; and, by soma writers, to cases where the patalkl
quadrangular ends are rtetatiffies.
The following •'prlsmoldal fbrmnla** i^Uas to all tbo ftregolng •olidi^

case we must imagine the plane to be extended until it cuts the side of the cylinder
likewise extended ; and then by page 199 find the solidity of the uegnlathus formed.
Then find the solidity of the snuUl nngnla above to, also thus formed, and subtract
it fh>m the large one.
This very extended applicability of the prismoidal formula was first discorered,
and made known* hy KUwood Morris, a B., of Philadelphia, in 1840.

SPHERES OR GLOBES.
A Sphere
Is a solid generated by the revolation of a semicircle around its diameter. E^ery
point in the surface of a sphere is equidistant (h)m a certain point called the center.
Any line passing entirely throns;h a sphere, and through its center, is called its axis,
or diameter. Any circle described on tlie surface of a sphere, fh>m the center ol
the sphere as the center of the circle, is called a great eirde of that sphere i in other
words any entire circumference of a sphere is a great circl«f. A «phere has a greatei
content or solidity 'than any other solid with the same amount of surface ^so that i
the riiape of a sphere be any way changed, its content will be reduced. The inter
section of a sphere with any plane is a circle.

210 SPECIFIC GRATITT.
SPEOmO GEAVm.
1. The specific gravity, or relative density, D*. of a sabstancei
is the ratio between the weight, W, of any given volume of that substance and
the weight, A, of an equal volume of some substance adopted as a standard of
w
comparison. Or: D = ^.
2» For ffaseous substances, the standard substance is air, at a temper
ature of 0° Cent. =s ^29 Fahr., with barometer at 760 millimeters = 29.922 incnes.
3. For solids and liquids, the standard substance is distilled water, at its
temperature (4^ Cent = 39.2° Fahr.) of maximum density.
4. For all ordinary purposes of civil engineering, any clear fresh
water, at any ordinary temperature, may be used. Even with water at
SOP Cent., = 86^ Fahr., the result is only 4 parts in 1000 too great.
5. When a body is immersed in water, the upward forc& or '* buoyancy***
exerted upon it by the water, or the **loss of weight " of the body, due to its
immersion, is equal to the weight of the water displaced by the immersion of
the body f ; or, if
W = the weiffht of the body in air,
u; = its weight in water,
D ■= its relative density or specific gravity,
A = the weight of water displaced ;
then A = W — ic ; and D = r — tT? •
' A W — w
6. Since the volume, V, of a body, of given weight, W, is inverselv aa iti
density, or specific gravity, D ; the specific gravity is equal also to the ratio
between the volume V, of an equal weight of the standard substance, to the
volume, V, of the body in question ; or D = ^'.
7. The specific gravities of substances heavier than water are ordi
narily determined by weighing a mass of the substance, first in air (obtain
ing its weight, W), and then when the mass is completely submerged in water
W
(obtaining its diminished weight, w). Then D = ^ , as in If 5.
8. If the body Is lighter than water » it must be entirely immersed,
and held down against its tendency to rise. Its weight, «>, in water, or ita
upward tendency, is then a negative quantity, and means must beprovided for
measuring it, as by making it act upward against the scale pan. We then have^
A = W — (— w) = W + M? ; or
Loss due to immersion = weight of body in air, pltis its buoyancy.
9. Or, first allow the body to float upon the water, and note the resulting di»
placeraent, t>, of water, as by the rise of its surface level in a prismatic vessel.
Then immerse the body completely, and again note the displacement, V. Now
V, the volume displaced by the body when floating, and V, tne volume displaced
by the body when completely immersed, are proportional respectively to the
weight, W, of the body, and to the weight, W — tr, of a mass of water of equal
volume with the body. Hence D == = ^^.
W — w V
10. Or, attach to the light body, b, a heavier body, or sinker, S, of such den*
sity and mass that both bodies together will sink in water. Let W be the
weight of the light body, 6, in air ; Q the weight of both bodies in air, and q
their combined weight in water. Then Q — ^ = the weight of a mass of water
of equal volume with the two bodies, and Q — W =». the weight, S, of the sinker
in air. By immersing the sinker alone, find the weight, fc, of water equal in
volume to the sinker alone, — loss of weight in sinker, due to immersion.
Then, for the weight, A, of water of equal volume with the light body, fr, or tor
* Strictly speaking, " specific gravity " refers to weight, and " relative density »»
to mcus (see Mechanics, Art. 14 a); but, as specific gravity and density
numerically equal, they are often treated as identicaL
t See Hydrostatics, Art. 18.

SFifiOIPIC GRAVITY. 211
the low of weight of b, due to immersion, we have A = Q 0 — k ; and, for
the specific gravity, D, of the light body, 6, we have D = a_ ^ . =" ^_^
where to — the (unknown) buoyancy of b.
11. A granular body, as a mass of sawdust, gravel, sand, cement, etc.,
or a porous body, as a maas of wood, cinder, concrete, sandstone, etc., is a com
posite body, consisting partly of solid matter and partly of air. Thus, a cubic
foot of quartz sand weighs about 100 fi>s.; while a cubic foot of quartz weighs
about 165 lbs.
12. The specific sraTltj of porous substances is usually taken
as that of the composite mass of solid and air. Thus, a wood, weighing (with
its contained air) 62.5 ttw. per cubic foot, or the same as water, is said to have a
specific gravity of 1. The absorption or water, when such bodies are immersed
forthe purpose of determining their specific gravities, may be prevented by a
thin coat of varnish.
13. The specific grravity of granular substances is sometimes taken
as that of the solid part alone. Thus, Portland cements ordinarily weigh (in
air) from 75 to 90 fts. per cubic foot, which would correspond to specific gravities
of from 1.20 to 1.44 ; out the specific gravity of the solid portion ranges from
8.00 to 3.25 ; and the latter figures are usually taken as representing the speciflo
gravities.
14. In determining the specific gravities of substances (such as cement)
which are soluble in water or otherwise affected by it, the substances are
weighed in some liquid (such as benzine, turpentine or alcohol) which will not
affect them, instead of in water. The result, so obtained, must then be multi'
plied by the ratio between the density of the liquid and that of water.
15. The specific ifpavity of a liquid is most directly determined by
weighing equal volumes of the liquid and of water.
16. Or weigh, in the liquid, some body, whose weight, W, in air, and whose
specific gravity, d, are known. Let u/ = its weight m the liquid. Then, for
the specific gravity, D, of the liquid, we have
d(W— «/)
W:W — «/ = d:D; or D = ^— ^^^ — •'.
17. Or, let the body, in f 16 (weighing W in air), weigh %o in water, and (as
before) to' in the liquid in question. Then, since specific gravity of water =s 1,
we have
W — m;:W — u/^lrD; orD = 3~"^ »
w — to
18. The specific gravities of liquids are commonly obtained by observing the
depth to which some standard instrument (called a hydrometer) sinks when
allowed to float upon the surface of the liquid. The greater the depth, the less
the specific gravity of the liquid. In Beaum4('s hydrometer tne depth
of immersion is shown by a scale upon the instrument. The graduations of the
scale are arbitrary. For liquids heavier than water, 0^ corresponds to a specific
gravity of 1, and 76^ to a specific gravity of 2. For liquids lighter than water,
10° correspond to a specific gravity of 1, and 60° to a specific gravity of 0.745.
19. In Twaddell's hydrometer, used for liquids heavier than water,
. ,^ 6 X No. of degrees + 1,000
specific gravity = ^ J —
Thus, if the reading be 90°,
, 4* 5 X 90 f 1,000 1,450 , ^„
specific gravity j^^^^i ^ ^^ 1.46.
20. In Nicholson's hydrometer, largely used also for solids, the specific
gravity is deduced from the weights required to produce a standard depth of
immersion. It consists of a hollow metal float, trom which rises a thin but stiff
▼ire carrying a shallow dish, which always remains above water. From the
float is suspended a loaded dish, which, like the float, is always submerged. On
tile wire supporting the upper dish is a standard mark, which, in observations,
is alwavB brought to the surface of the water. The specific gravity is then deter
miiied by means of the weights carried in the two dishes respectively.
21. The determination of the specific graYltles of ffaseous sub
■tanees requires the skill of expert chemists.

WEIGHTS AND MEASURES.
United States and Brttisb measures of lengrtli and weiirbt»
of the same denomination, may, /or all ordinarp pttrposeSf be ooncidered as equal ;
but the liquid and dry measures of the same denomination differ widely
in the two countries. Ttaie standard measure of leng^tb of both coun
tries is theoretically that of a pendulum vibratiiig seconds at the level of the
sea, in the latitude of Loudon, in a vacuum, with Fahrenheit's thermometer at
629. The length of such a pendulum is supposed to be divided into S9.1393
equal parts, called inches ; and 36 of these inches were adopted as the standard
yard of both countries. But the Parliamentary standard having been destroyed
by fire, in 1834, it was found to be impossible to restore it by measarement of a
pendulum. The present British Imperial yard, as determined, at a temperature
of 629 Fahrenheit, by the standard preserved in the Houses of Parliament, is
the standard of the United States Coast and Geodetic Survey, and Is recognized
as standard throughout the country and by the Departments of the Govern
ment, although not so declared by Act of Congress. The yard between the 27th
and 63d inches of a scale made for the U. S. Coast Survey by Troughton, of Lon
don, in 1814, is found to be of this standard length when at a temperature of
59^.62 Fahrenheit : but at 629 is too long by 0.00083 inch, or about 1 part in 43373,
or 1.46 inch per mile, or 0.0277 inch in 100 feet
The Coast Survev now uses, for purposes of comparison, two measures pre
sented by the British Government in 1855, as copies of the Imperial fltandsrd,
namely :
** Bronze standard, Ko. 11 ;" of standard length at 62^.25 Fahr.
" Malleable iron standard, No. 57 ;" " " " 62«>.io "
See Appendix No. 12, Beport of U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey for 1877.
Tbe legral standard of ireielit of the United States is the Troy
pound of tbe Mint at Philadelphia. This standard, containing 5760
Sains, is an exact copy of the Imperial Troy pound of Grea*
ritain. The avoirdupois or commercial pound of the United States, con
taining 7000 grains, and derived from the standard Troy pound of the Mint, is
found to agree within one thousandth of a erain with the British avoirduM>fs
pound. The U. S. Coast Survey therefore declares the weights of the two ooun
tries identical.
Tlie Ton. In Revised Statutes of the United States, 2d Edition, 1878, Title
XXXiy, Collection of Duties upon Imports, Chapter Six. Appraisal, says :
"Sec. 2951. Wherever the word 'ton' is used in this cnapter, in reference to
weight, it shall be construed as meaning twentyhundredweight, each hundred
weight being one hundred and twelve pounds avoirdupois."
This appears to be the only U. S. Government regulation on the subject.
The ton of 2240 ft>s (often called a sross ton or Ions ton) is commonlj
used in buying and selling iron ore, pig iron, steel rails and other manufactured
iron and steel. . Coke and many other articles are bought and sold by the net
ton or sliort ton of 2000 lbs. The bloom ton had 2464 ftis, = 2240 fira ^ 2
hundredweight of 112 S>s each ; and the pig iron ton had 2268 fi>s, == 2240 lbs + a
"sandage" of '28 fcs, or one "quarter," to allow for sand adhering to the pigs,
but some furnace men allowed only 14 lbs. In electric traction work the ton
means 2000 lbs.
As a measure, the ton, or tun, is defined as 252 gallons, as 40 cubic feet of
round or rough timber or in ship measurement, or as 60 feet of hewn timber. 252
U. S. gallons of water weigh about 2100 Ha ; 252 Imperial gallons about 2500 lbs ;
SO cub ft yellow pine about 2500 Sts.
Tbe metric system * was legalised in the United States in
* The metric system, as compared with the English, baH much the same advantagea
and disadvantages that our American decimal coinage has in comparison witiii the
English monetary system of pounds, shillings and pence. It will enormously facili
tate all calculations, but, like all other improvemeute, it will necessarily eause some
inconvenience while the cliange is being made. The metric system has also tMa ftir
ther and very great advantage, that it bids fair to become univeisal among of viliaeo

1866, but hM not been made ot)llgfttorT. The gorernment has since ftirnished
very exact metnc standards to the several States. The use of the metric system
has been permitted In Great Britain, beginning with August 6, 1897. and in
Ruflsia, beginning with 1900. I to use is now at least permissive in most civil
ised nations.
Tlie laetrle nnlt of lenytb is tlie metre, er nueter, which waa
fntended to be one tenmillionth I j of the earth's quadrant, f. c, of
Ihat portion of a meridian embraced between either pole and the equator. This
lengtn was measured, and a set of metrical standards of weight and measure
were prepared in accordance with the result, and deposited among the archives
«f France at Paris (MHre des Archives.. Kilogramme des Archives, etc.). It has
since been discovered that errors occurred in the calculations for ascertaining
the length of the quadrant ; but the standards nevertheless remain as originally
preparM.
Tlie metric measures ef surface and of capacitv^ are the squares
and cubes of the meter and of ito (decimal) fractions and multiples.
Tlie metric unit of welarlit is tlie grramme or grram, which is
the weight of a milliliter or cubic centimeter * of pure water at its tempera*
tore of maximum density, about A.5^ Gentisrade or 40^ Fahrenheit.
By the concurrent action of the principal governments of the world, an In
temational Bureau of Weiyiits and MeasuriMi has been estab
Ushed, with its seat near Paris. It has prepared two ingots of pure platinum
ixidium, from one of which a number of standard kilograms (1000 grams) havf
been made, and from the other a number of standard meter bars, both derived
from the standards of the Archives of France. Of these copies, certain ones
were selected as international standards, and the others were distributed to the
different governments. Those sent to tne United States are in the keeping of
the U. 8. Coast Survey.
The detennination of the einiTalent of tbe meter in Eng^Iisii
measure is a very difficult matter. The standard meter is measured from end
l» sfuf of %pkUiiuan bar and at the freexbtng point ; whereas the standard yard is
measured hehown two lines drawn on a silver seale inlaid in a brmize bar. and ai
^aP FiihrenheU. Tbe United States Ooast Surweyf adopts, as the
length of the meter at 62° Fahrenheit, the value determined by Capt. A. R.
Clarke and Col. Sir Henry James, at the office of the British Ordnance Survey,
in 1866, vis. : S9.37(M82 inches (= 8.2808666 + feet « 1.0986222 + yards) ; but the
lawftil equiwaient, established by Congress, is 39.87 inches (=t 3.28083 feet
= 1.098611 yards). This value is as accurate as any that can be deduced from
existing data.

easures in 1884 makes it 15.43236639 grains. The leeal value in the United

$18.84151 per avoir oz. Bttandard (U. 8. coin) is worth $18.60465 per troy oz =
$16.95736 per avoir oz. It consists of 9 parts by weight of pure gold, to 1 part
alloy. Its value is that of the pure gold only ; the cost of the alloy and of the
ooini^ being borne by Government. A cable f€»ot of pure cold irelgphs
about 1204 avoir lbs ; and is worth $362963. A cubic ineh weighs about 11.148
avoir oz ; and is worth $210.04.
Pure gold is called fine, or 24 earat gold ; and when alloyed, the alloy is sup
posed to be divided into 24 parts by weight, and according as 10, 15, or 20, 4&c, of
these parts are pun gold, the alloy is said to be 10, 16, or 20, Ac, carat.
The averaipe fineness of California natlTe void, by some thou
sands of assays at the U. S. Mint in Philada., is 88.5 parts gold, 11.5 silver. Some
from Georgia, 99 per cent. gold.
•Pure sllTer fluctuates in value : thus, during 18781879 it ranged between
$1.05 and $1.18 per troy oz., or $.957 and $1,076 per avoir, oz. A cubic inch weiglfs
about 5.528 troy, or 6.065 avoir, ounces.

Bletbods of reekonins time. Astronomers distinguish between mean
solar time, true or api)arent solar time, and sidereal time.
At a standard meridian (see page 267) mean solar time is the same at
ordinary clock time. At any point not on a standard meridian, standard time
is the local mean solar time of the meridian adopted as standard for such point ;
and local time is = time at a standard meridian phu correction for longitude
from that meridian if the place is east of the meridian, and vice versa. For the
amount of such correction, see second table above. A true or apparent
aolnr day is the interval of time between two successive culminations of
the sun, «.«., between two successive transits or passages of the sun across the
meridian of the same point ou the earth ; but, since these intervals are unequal,
they do not correspond with the uniform movement of clock time. A fictitious
or imaginary sun, called the "mean sun," is therefore supposed to move along
the equator in such a way that the interval between its culminations is con
stant. This interval is called a day, or mean solar day, and is the average of the
lengths of all the apparent solar days in a vear. Apparent and mean time
agree at four points in the year, viz., about the middle of April and of June,
September 1 and December 24. The sun is sometimes behind and sometimes
in advance of the mean sun, and is called " slow " or " fast " accordingly. The
sun is " slow " in winter, the maximum being about February 11, when it passes
any standard meridian, or "souths" (making of^Mrent noon), about 14m, 28s,
after noon by a correct clock. The sun is " fast," or in advance of the clock, in
MJty and in the £all, with a maximum, about l^ovember 2, of about 16m, 20s.
The difference between apparent and mean time is called the equation of
time. It can be obtained from the Nautical Almanac, or, approximately, by
taking the mean between the times of sunrise and sunset, as given in ordinary
almanacs.
As solar time is measured by the apparent daily motion of the sun, so sidereai
time is measured by that of the fixed stars, or, more strictly speaking, by the
motion of the vernal equinox which is the point where the sun crosses the
equator in the spring.
* The second was formerly divided into 60 equal parts called thirds (marked
'") ; but it is now divided decimally.
f The old and confusing practice of designating minutes, seconds and thirds
of time (see footnote *) as % " and ''', is no longer in vogue. Days, hours, min
utes and seconds are now designated by d, h, m, and s, respectively, thus : 2d,
20h, 48ni, 65.43 s.j and the symbols ' and " designate minutes and seconds of are.
266 <TIMB.
A sidereal dAy" is the interval of time between two tueeeisiye paaaages of
the vernal equinox (or. practically, of auy star) past the meridian of a ^ven
point on the earth. It is, practically, the time required for one complete revo
lution of the earth on its axi£, relatively to the stars.
The length of the sideral day is 23 h, 56 m, 4.U9 s, of mean solar time, or S m,
56.91 A of mean solar time less than the mean solar day of 24 hours. In other
words, a star will, on any night, appear to set 3 m, 55.91 s earlier by a correct
clock than it did on the preceding night. Hence, substantially, the number of
sidereal days in a year is greater by 1 than the number of solar days.
The sidereal day, like the solar day, is divided into 24 hours. These hours
are. of oourse, shorter than those of tne solar day in the same proportion as the
sidereal day is shorter than the solar day. They are counted from to 24, com
mencing with sidereal itoon, or the instant when the vernal equinox passes the
ujmer meridian.
Tlie etwil day (» 24 hours of clock or mean solar time) commences at mid
night ; and the astronomical solar day at noon on the civil day of the
same date. Thus, on a standard meridian, Thursday, May 9, 2 a. m . civil time,
is Wednesdav, May 8, 14 h, astronomical time; but Thursday, May 9, 2 p. M.,
eivil time, is Thursday, May 9, 2 h, astronomical time.
Tbe cItII month is the ordinary and arbitrary month of the calendar,
varying in length from 28 to 31 mean solar days.
A sidereal montb is the time required for the moon to perform an entire
revolution with reference to the stars. Its mean length, in mean solar time, is
about 27 d, 7 h, 43 m, 12 s.
A lunation, or synodic month is the time from new moon to new
moon. Its mean length is about 29 d, 12 h, 44 m, 8 s.
The tropical or natural year is the time during which the earth
describes the circuit from either equinox to the same again. Its mean length,
in mean solar time, is now about 365 d, 5 h, 48 m, 49 s.
The sidereal year is the time during which the earth describes its orbit
with reference to the stars. Its mean length, in mean solar time, is about 365
d, 6 h, 9 m, 10 s.
The elwll year is that arbitrary or conventional and variable division of
time comprised between the 1st of January and tbe 31st of the following Decem
ber, both inclusive. It contains ordinarily 365 mean solar days of 24 hours, bat
each yenr whose number is divisible by 4 contains 366 days, and is called a leap
year, except that those years whose numbers end in 00 and are not multipMB
of 400 are not leap years.
To regulate a watch hy the stars. The author, after having rega
' lated his chronometer for a year by this method onlv,diffiereid but a few seconds
from the actual time as deduced from careful solar observations. Select a
window, facing west if possible, and commanding a view of a roofcrest or oth^
fixed horizontal line, preferably about 40^ above the horizon, in order to avoid
disturbance due to refraction, and distant say 50 feet or more. Note the
time when any bright fixed star (not a planet) passes the range formed between
the roof, etc., and any fixed horizontal line about the window frame, as a pin
fixed in <>it her Jamb. The sight in the window, and the watch, must be illumi
nated. The star will pass the range 3 m. 55.91 s. earlier on each suooeeding
evening. Those stars which are nearest the equator appear to move the fastest,
and are therefore best suited to the purpose. If the first observation of a given
star lie made as late as midnight, that saron star will answer for about three
months, until at last it will begin to pass the range in daylight. Before this
happens, transfer the time to another star which sets later. By thus tabidating,
throughout the year, about half a dozen stars which follow each other at
nearly equal intervals of time, we may provide a standard by means of which
correct clock time may be ascertained on any clear night. Experinfenting in
this way with two of the best chronometers, the author found that tWr
rates varied, at times, as much as from three to eight seconds per day.
An average man takes two steps (one right, one left) per B c ca»d«
Hence, march music usually takes one second per measure (or ** bar "). Modem
watches usually tick five times, and clocks either one, two, or four tlmes^
per second.
STANDARD RAILWAY TIME. 267
STANBARD RAII.WAT TIME, ADOPTED I8SS.
The following amtngement of standard time was recommended by the General
and Southern Time Gonyentions of the railroads of the United States and Canada,
held respectiyely in St. Louis, Mo., and New York city, April, 18S3, and in Chicago,
m., and New York city, in October, 1883, and went into effect on most of the rail
itMMls of the United States and Canada, NoTembar 18th, 1888. Most of the principal
cities of the United States hare made their respective local times to correspond with
it. This system was proposed by Mr. W. V. Allen, Secretary of the Time Gonyen
tions, and its adoption was largely due to his efforts. We are indebted to Mr. Allen
for documents from which the following has been condensed, five standards of time
or five ** times," have been adopted for the United States and Canada. These are,
respectively, the mean times of the 60th, 76th, 90th, 106th, and 120th meridians west
of Greenwich, England. As each of these meridians, in the above order, is 16<> west
of its predecessor, its time is one hour slower. Thus, when it is noon on the OOch
meridian, it is 1 p.m. on the 76th, and 11 a. m. on the 106th. vThe following gives
the name adopted for the standard time of each meridian, and the conventional
color adopted, and uniformly adhered to, by Mr. Allen, for the purpose of designat*
ing it and its time, Ac, on the maps published under his anspioess
Longitude west

Theoretically, each meridian may be said to give the time for a strip of country
ttP wide, running north and south, and having the meridian for its center. Thus
ths meridian on which the change of time between two standard meridians is sup
p sssd to take place, lies half>way between them. But it would, of course, not be
practiesble for the railroads to use an imaginary line in passing from one time
standard to another. The changes are made at prominent stations forming the ter
mini of two or more lines; or, as in the case of the long Pacific roads, at the ends
(tf divisions. As far as practicable, points at which changes uf time had previously
basn made, were selected as the changing points under the new system. Detroit,
Wch., Pittoburgh, Pa., Wheeling and Parkersburg, W. Va., and Augusta, Ga., al
though not situated upon the same meridian, are points of change between «a$tem
and central standard times. A train arriving at Pittsburgh from the east at noon,
and leaving for ths west 10 minutes after its arrival, leaves (by the figures shown
npon its timetable, and by the watches of its train hands) not at 10 minutes afker
ISjbat at 10 minntss alter 11.
The necessity for making the changes of time at principal points, instead of on a
true meridian line, necessitates also some "overlapping** of the times, or of their
eolors on the map. Thus, most of the roads between Buffalo and Detroit, on the
north side of Lake Brie, run Irf ** eastern," or **red,** time; while those on the $ouih
side of the Ijske, between Buffalo and Toledo, immediately opposite to and directly
south of them, run by ** central ** or " blue ** time.
If the chauMs of time were made at ths meridians midway between the standard
ones, it woula not be necessary for any town to change its time more than 30 min
utes. As it is, somewhat greater changes had to be made at a few points. Thus,
standard time at Detroit is 32 minutes ahead, and at Savannah 86 minutes back, of
mean locaf time.
In most cases the necessary change was made upon the railways by simply setting
docks and watches ahead or back the necessary number of minutes, and without
making any change in timetables.
Raliux, and a few adjacent cities, use the time of the 60th meridian, that being
the nearest one to them ; but the railroadM in the same district have adopted the
T6th meridian, or eastern, time; so that, for railroad purposes, intercolonial time
has never come into force.
In 1878 there were 71 time standards in use on the railroads of the United States
and Canada. At the time of the adoption of the present system this number had
■been reduced, by consolidation of roads, Ac, to hS, By its adoption, the number be
tame 5, or, practicslly, 4, owing to the adoption of eastern time by the intercolonial
roads; as aJrcHsdy explained.

DIAIA
DIALLING.
To malKe a borlxontal San^dlal,
Draw a line a h ; and at right angles to it, draw 66. From any convenient point, bb c,
in a fr, draw the perp c o. Make the angle cao equal to the lat of the place ; aJfo
the angle e o « equal to the same ; Join o e. Bfake e n equal to o e; and from n as a
center, with the rad e n, describe a quadraat e «; and div it into 6 equal parts. Draw c
y, parallel to 6, 6; and
firom n, through the 5 ^ DIAL ^
points on the quadrant, ^
draw lines n t^n t, ^c,
terminating in ey. From
a draw lines a 6, a 4, Ac,
passing through t, i, Ac.
From any convenient
point, as c, describe an
arc r nt A, as a kind of fin
ish or border to half the
dial. All the lines may
now be effaced, except
the hour lines a 6, a 6,
a 4, Ac, to a 12, or a A;
unless*, as is generally
the case, the dial is to
be divided to quarters
of an hour at least. In
this case each of the
divisions on the quad
rant « «, must be subdivided into 4 equal parts; and lines drawn from n, thioaf^
the points of subdivision, terminating in ty. The quarterhour lines must be drawn
from a, as were the hour Unes. Subdivisions of 6 min may be made in the same
way ; but these, as well as single min, may usually be laid off around the border, by
eye. About 8 or 10 times the size of our Fig will be a convenient one for an ordi
nary dial. To draw the other half of the Fig, make a d equal to the intended thick
ness of the gnomon, or style, of the dial ; and draw d 12, parallel, and equal to a 12 ; and
draw the arc x^ to, precisely similar to the arc rmh. Between x and to, on the arc ng «0,
space off divisions equal to those on the arc r7nh\ and number them for the hoan,
as in the Fig. The style F, of metal or stone, (wood is too liable to warp,) will be
triangular; its thickness must throughout be equal to a<2 or &«o; its base murt
cover the space adhv)\ its point will be at ad; and its perp height Av, over A.«^
must be such that lines vd^uii, drawn from its top, down to a and d, will make the
angles u a A, « d io, each equal to the lat of the place. Its thickness, if of metal, may
conveniently be fh>m ^ to ^ inch ; or if of stone, an inch or two, or more, aooording
to the siie of the dial. Usually, for neatness of appearance, the back A u « to of the
style is hollowed inward. The opper edges, ua, v d, which cast the shadows, moat
be sharp and straight. The dial must be fixed in place hor, or perfectly level ; ah
and dw must be placed truly north and south ; ad being south, and A«o north. Th»
dial givee only sun or solar time ; but clock time can be found by means of the ** fiurt'
or slow of the sun," as given by all almanacs. If by the almanac the tun is 6 miB.
Ac, fast, the dial will be the same ; and the clock or watoh, to be correct, must be f
Bin slower than it ; and vice versa.
To make a Vertical SnnDlal.
Proceed as directed above, except that the angles eao and eo« on the drawing,
and the angle t«a A or v dir of the style, must lie equal to the oolatitnde (» dif
ference between the latitude and 90^) of the place, and the hours must be num
bered the opposite wav from those in the above flgare ; i e, from A to y number
12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7 ; and from to tog number 12. 1, 2, 8, 4, 6. The dial plate muat be
placed vertically, in the position shown in the figure, (kcing ezacuy south, and
with a A and dw vertical.

LAND SURVEYING.
In surveyliie • tnet of gimiml, the sites which eoMpose its outline are deri»
nated by nuraben in the order in which they ocoor. Thst end of each side which
first presents itself in theooarseof the surrey, may be called its near end ; and the
other its /or end. The oamber of each side is plaoed at its far end. Thus, in Figr. 1,
the sarTey being supposed to comroeDce at the corner 6, and to follow the direc
tion of the arrows, toe irst side is <>, 1 : and its number is placed at its far end at 1 ;
and so of the rest. Let NS be a meridian line, that is, a north and south line;
and EW an east and west line. Than in any side which runs northwaidly;
Flff.1.
whether northeast, as side 2; or north westL as sides 8 and 1; or doe north; the
distance in a due north direction between its near end and its far end, is called
its lunihing; thus, a 1 is the northing of side 1; Ibthe northing of side 2 ; 4e
of idde 5. In like manner, if any side runs in a southwardly direction, whether
southeastwardly, as side 8; or south westwardly, as sides 4 and 6; or due south ;
the corresponding distance in a due south direction between its near end and its
far end, is called its southing; thus, d3 is the southing of side 8; 80 of side 4;
/6 of side 6. Both northinss and southings are included in the general term
jD^erence of Latitude of a side ; or, more commonly but erroneously, its kUiiude,
The distance due east, or due west, between the near and the far end of any side,
is in like manner called the Muting^ or westing^ of that side, as the case nuy be;
thus, 6 a is the westing of side 1; 6/ of side 6; e6 of side 5; e4 of side 4; and
6 2 is the easting of side 2 ; 2 d of side 8. Both eastings and westing are included
in the general term Dqaarture of a side; implying that the side d^xxrU so far
from a north or south direction. We may say that a side norths, wests, sontheasta^
Ac. We shall call the northings, southings, Ac. the Ks, Ss, £b, and Ws ; the lati
tudes, lats; and the departures, d^.
Perfect accuracy is unattainable in any operation inyolyinff the measur»^
meuts of angles and distances.* That work is accurate enough, which cannot
be made more so without an expenditure more than commensurate with the
object to be gained. There is no great difficulty in confining the uncertainty
within about onehalf per cent, of the content, and this probably never pre
▼ents a transfer in farm transactions. But errors always become apparent when
we come to work out the field notes; and since the map or plot of the surrby, and
the calculations for ascertaining the content, should be consistent within them
selres, we do what is usually called eorreding the errors, but what in fact is simply
humoring them, in, no matter how scientific the nrocess may appear. We distrib
ute them all around the survey. Two methods are used for this purpose, both
based upon precisely the same principle * one by means of drawing; the other,
more exact but much more trouolesome. by calculation. The graphic method, in
the hands of a correct draftsman, is sufficiently exact for all ordinarv purposes.
Add all the sides in feet together; and divide the sum by their number, for the
average length. IMvide this average by 8 ; the quotient will be the proper scale
in feet per inch. In other words, take about 8 ins. to represent an average side.
We shall take it for granted that an engineer does not consider it accurate work to

the nearest quarters of a degree, btit should be read as closely as tbe observer oan guess at the minutes.
The back courses also should be taken at every comer, as an additionid cheek, and for tbe deteetioa
ef local attraction. It la
well in taking the oom
pass bearings, to adopt
as a rule, always to point
the north of tbe compass*

whose bearing is to be
taken, and to read off
from tbe north end of the

liable to make mistakee.

fkvm sevo to 180° tfte preeaatlon is useless. When the small angle is exterior, subtract it from SIMP
for the interior one.
Snppoelng the fleld work to be finished, and that we require a plot from which the oontenta may
be obtained mechanically, by dividing it into triangles, (the bases and heights of which may be
measnred br scale, and thtir areas calculated one by one,} a protraction of it may be made at once
from tbe field notes, either by uslQg tbe angles, or by first oorrtictiag the bearinga by means of the
angles, and then nsing them. The last is tbe best, because in the first tbe protractor must be moved
to each angle ; whereas In tbe last it will remain sUtionary while all the bearings are being pricked
off. Kverj movement of it Inoreasea the liability to errors. The manner of oorreotlng the bewrings
Is explained on tbe next page.
In either case the protracted plot will oertainly not eloee precisely ; not only in oonsequence of errors in
tbe field work, but also in the protracting itself. Thus the last side. No 6, Fig S, Instead of closing in at
eomer 6, will end somewhere else, say, for instance, at (; the diet 1 6 being the etoting orror, which,
however, as represented in Pig 3, is more than ten times as great, proportionally to the siie of the
snrrey. as would be allowable in praetice. Now to hnmorln this error, rule through every oomer
a short line parallel to ( d; and. in all eases, in the direetion from t (wherever it mav be) to tbm
Btartlag point 6. Add all the sidoB together ; and measure ( fi by the scale of the plot. Then befl)i>

The oerreotiec has evidently changed the length of every side ; lengthening some and shortening
others. U has also changed the angles. Tbe new lengths and angles may with tolerable accuracy
be fonnd by means of the scale and protractor ; and be marked on the plot Instead of the old ones.

Mt by aecorate work. His semlolrealar protractor should be about 9 to 12 Ins in diam. and gradn
I to 10 min. His straight edge and triangle should be of metal: we prefer (vorman silver, which
I not rast as steel does ; and they should be made with teniptUou* aeeuraey by a skilfUl lustra
jtnaker. A very fine needle, with a sealingwax beiul, should be used for pricking off disU and
aaglcs; it mnst be held vertically ; and the eye of tbe draftsman most be directly over it. The lead
peaeU should be hard (Paber's No. 4 is good for protracting), and must be kept to a sharp point by
rabMiv on a fine file, after nsing a knife for removing the wood. Tbe scale should be at least as long
aa the longest side of tbe plot, and should be made at the edge of a strip of tbe same paper as the plot
Is drawn on. This will obviate to a considerable extent, errors arising from contracUon and expao
ilea. Unfortunately, a sheet of paper does not contract and expand in the same proportion length*
•Iss and eroaswlae, thus preventing the paper scale nom being a perfect corrective. In plots of com
1MB farm survi^s, iko, however, the errors rh>m this source may be neglected. For such plott as mav
m pretraoted. divided, and computed within a time too short to admit of appreciable change, theordi
iarf seales of wood, ivory, or metal may be used ; but satisfHctory accuracy oannot be obtained with
Asm on plots requiring several days, if tbe air be meanwhile alternately moist and dry, or subject to
ssnsldarable variations in temperature. What is called parehmont paper is worae in this respect thaa

join a e ; and ilraw 1 , 1' ; 2. 2' , 4o, which will give the error at each oorner.
When the plot ia thus completed, it may be divided by One pencil llnea into trianglea, whoaa
baaea and heights may be measured by the aoale, in order to compute the oontenta. With care In
both the anrrey and the drawing, the error ahould not exeeatf about rItt V^ ot the true area. At
leaat two distinot aeta of trianglea abould be drawn and computed, as a guard against miatakea ; and If
the two aeta dlflbr in calculated oontenta more than about ^^ part, they have not been aa carefully
frepared aa they abould have been. The doaing error due to imperfect fleld work, may be accurately
Mloulated, aa we shall ahow, and laid down on the paper before beginning the plot ; thua furnishing
• perfect teat of the accuracy of the protraction work, which, if correctly done, will not cloae at the
point of beginning, but at the point which indicates the error. But this calculation of the error, by
a little additional trouble, furniahea data alao for dividing it by calculation among the diff aides;
besides the means of drawing the plot co)r«c(Zy at once, without the use of a protractor ; thna en»>
bling uB to make the aubaequent meaaurementa and oomputationa of the triangles with more oar
tainty.
We shall now describe thia proceaa, but would recommend that even when it la employed, and
aapeeially in complicated surveys, a rough plot should first be made and oorreoted, by the first of the
two mechanical methods already alluded to. It will prove to be of great service in using the method
by oalonlation, inaamuoh aa it fumisbes an eye check to vexations mistaken which are otherwise apt
to occur: for, although the principles involved are extremely simple, and easily remembered when
once understood, yet the oonUnual changes in the directions of the sides will, without great ears,
•auae na to uae Na inatead of Sa; Bs instead of Wa, Ac.
We auppose, then, that such a rough plot has been prepared, and that the angles, bearings, and
diatancea, aa taken ft'om the field book, are figured upon it in leadptneU.
Add together the interior angles formed at all the cornera : call their sum a. Unit the number o*
aidea by 1909 ; from the prod aubtract 360" : if the remainder la equal to the aum a, it ia a proof that
the anglea have been correctly meaanred.* This, however, will rarely if ever ooeur ; there wHl
always be aome discrepancy ; but if the field work has been performed with moderate eare, tliis wUl
not cxcMd about two mln for each angle. In this case div it <n tqttal part* among all the anglea,
adding or aubtracting, as the caae may be, unleaa It amounta to leaa than a min to each angle, when
it may be entirely disregarded in common farm surveys. The corrected angles may then be marked
0n the plot in ink, and the pencilled figures erased. We will suppose the corrected ones to be aa
•hown in Fig S.
Next, by meana of these
oorreoted angles, oorreet ths
bearings alao. thua. Fig t ;
Select some aide (the longv
the better) trom. the two enda
of which the bearing and ths
reverse bearing agreed ; thns

of it, as at its far end S, draw

allel to which draw others
through every ooraer. Now,
having the bearing of side S,
M nP 8*i' B, and reqnirfaig
that of side S, it is pltfn that
the reverse bearing fromoor>
ner 8 is 8 75° S2' W ; and
that therefore the angle 1. %,

take IfP 38' trom the entire

•Ide S, alao equal to 6»o 26' : and if we add this to the entire corrected angle 234. or tofito 88*. we havs

Mrtftal obMrrstion Is BMestaiy to B«e how tbe aereral angles are to be employed at eaeh oanmt,
Biilea are sometimes given for this purpose, but unless frequently used, they are soon forgotten.
The plot ueehanioally prepared obviates the necessity for such rules, inasmuch as the principle of
proceeding thereby beoomes merely a matter of sight, and tends greatly to prarent error from asing
the wrong bearings ; while the protractor will at onoe detect any serions mistakes as to the angles,
and thus prevent their being carried farther along. After having obtained all the corrected bearings,
Utev may be figured on the plot instead of those taken in the field. Thej will, however, require a
slUi farther oorreetion after a while, since they will be affected by the adjustment of the closing error.
We now prooeed to ealoalate the closing error <6 of Fig t, which is done on th« principle that in a
aorreet survey the northings will be equal to the southings, and the eantings to the westings. Pre*

tbvs with all. Add vp the foor eols ; find the dllT between the N and S ools ; and also between
the B and W ones. In this instance we find that the Ns are 0.2 feet greater than the Ss ; and that
the Wa are 14.8 ft greater than the Is ; in other words, there is a eleslntf error which wonld cause a
mrrtct protraotion of oar first three eels, to terminate 9.2 feet too far north of Um starting point : and
14.8 feet too ter west of it. 80 that by placing this error npon the paper before beginning to protraet,
We should bare a ten ftnr the aoenraoy of the protracting work ; bnt, aa before remarked, a little more
IrenUe will now enable us to div the error proportionally amonc all the Ms, Ss, Sa, and Ws, and thereby
give aa data for drswing the plot correctly at once, without using a protractor at all.
To divide the errors, prepare a table precisely the same as the foregoing, except that the hor spaeea
are farther apart : and that the addingsnp ef the old N, S, B, W oolunns are omitted. The additioai
here aotloed are made subseqaently.
The saw table is on (ha nasi pafs.

of a line will not read preciHt'ly the same argle; and the differauce varies with the
latitode and with the length of the line, but not in the same proportion with either.
It is, however, generally too small to be detected by the needle, bein^p, according ^o
Gummare, only three quarters of a minute in a liue one mile long in lat 40°. In
higher lata it is more, and in lower ones less. It is caused by the fact that meridians
or north and soath lines are not truly parallel to each other; but would if extended
■eet at the poles.
Heaee tbe only bearing (bat can be run in a straigbt line,
eilh ttrlet aocnraey, is a true N and 8 one ; except on the very equator, where alone a due E and w
one will also be straight. But a true curved E and W line may be found
■lywhere with suffioient accuracy for the survevor's purposes thus. Having first by means of the N
ttMrmtUt or otherwise got a true N and 8 bearing at the starting point, lay off from it 90*, for a true
land W DMtring at that point. This B and W bearing will be tangent to the true E and W curve.
Baa this tangent carefully : and at intervals (say at the end of each mile) lay off ftrom it (towards
the N If in N lat, or vice versa) an ofltet whose length in /Ml is equal to the proper one from the
Wlowinff (able, multiplied by the sotiare of the distanee in mtlM from the star«iug point. These

order the 8 sides of the triangular plot of a survey, with
a meridian line <l^ drawn through the extreme west cor*

side draw lines w e, m n, « o, also perp to meridian ; and
representing the middle dlsts of the sides. Then sinoe
the sides are regarded in the order a 6, 5 e, e a, it is
plain that a d represents the northing of the side a b ;

Aow if we mult the nothing ad ot the side ab, by its

In like manner the northing fa of the side ea, mult by

282 CHAINING.
CHAINUrO.
Chains. EDgineers have abandoned the Gunter's chain of 6& ft, divided
into 100 links of 7.92 ins each. They now use a chain of 100 ft^ with 100 links
of 1 ft each, and calculate areas In sq ft, the number of which, divided by
43,560, reduces to acres and decimals, instead of to acres, roods, and perches,
Giinter's chain is used on U. S. Government land surveys.
Chains are commonly made of iron or steel wire. Each link is bent &i each
of its ends, to form an eye, by which it is connected with the adjacent linki,
either directly, as in the Grumman patent chain, or, more commonly, by from
1 to 3 small wire links. The wear of tnese links is a fruitAil source of inaccuracy,
inasmuch as even a very slight wear of each link considerably increases the
length of the chain. Hence, chains should be compared with some standard,
sucn as a target rod, every few days while in use. For transportation, the
lengths are folded on each other, making a compact and sheaflike bundle.
Tapes. With improved facilities for the manufacture of steel tape, the chain
is going out of use. The tape, being much lighter, requires much less pull, and,
as there are no links to wear, its length is much more nearly constant than that
of the chain. It is replacing, to some extent, the basemeasuring rod for
accurate geodetic work. Steel tapes are made in continuous lengths up to 600,
600, and even 1000 ft, but those of 100 ft are the most commonly used. Very
long tapes are liable to breakage in handling. Even the shorter lengths, unless
handled carefully^ are apt to kink and breaC Breaks are difficult to mend, and
the repaired joint is seldom satisfactory ; whereas a kink in a wire chain seldom
involves more than a temporary change of length. Being run over by a car or
wagon will often kink steel tapes very badly, if it does not break them.* How*
ever, the lightness, neatness, and reliability of the tape ofiG^et these disadvan*
tages, which, indeed, the surveyor soon learns to overcome.
Tapes for general field work are usually narrow (from 0.10 to 0.25 in) and
thick (from 0.018 to 0.025 in),t and are graduated by means of small brass
and copper rivets, spaced, in general, 6 ft apart, 1 ft apart in the 10 ft at eac^
end, and 0.1 ft apart in the ft at each end. They are usually mounted on reels.
Tapes for city work are wider (from 0.25 to 0.5 in) and thinner (from 0.007 to
0.010 in)t and are graduated (usually to 0.01 ft) throughout their length by
means of lines and numerals etched on the steel.
Pins are ordinarily of wire, pointed at the lower end, and bent to a ring at
the upper end. They can be forced into almost any ground that is not exceed
ingly stony. A steel ring, like a large key rin^ is often used for carrying the
pins. Each pin should have a strip of bright red flannel tied to its top, in order
that it may be readily found, among the grass, etc., by the rear chainman.
Corrections for Hofs and tStretcll. The following diagram ^ (seep.
283) gives the correction for a steel tape weighing 0.75 fi> per 100 ft.t
*The Nichols Engineering & Contracting Ck>., Chicago, guarantees that its
tapes will not be injured by beins run over by wagons.
fThe sizes of tapes, as made by different manufacturers, vary greatly. In
applying the corrections, therefore, the width and thickness of the tape to be
used should be carefully measured, and its weight per ft computed.
X Deduced from diagrams constructed by Mr. J. O. Clarke, Proceedings Engi
)ers' Club of Philadelphia, April, 1901, Vol. XVIII, No. 2. from the formuU :

where

and from the equation of the parabola, according to which

Except for very light pulls, this last formula gives practically the same reaalts
as the equation of the catenary, which is absolutely correct, but much more
cumbersome.

(1) Seen from a point O (Figs. 1 and 2) on the earth, a circumpolar star e
(•tar near the pole P) ap(>ears to describe daily* and counterclockwise a
small circle, euwl, about the pole. The angle P O e, P O u, etc., subtended
by the radius P e, P u, etc., of this circle, or the apparent distance of the
star from the pole, is called its polar distance. The polar distances of
stars vary sligntly from year to year. See Table 3. They vary slightly also
during each year. In the case of Polaris this latter yariation amounts to
about 50 seconds of arc.

ration. Decl Inatlon = angular distance north or south from the celestial
equator. Thus, declination of pole = 90°. Declination of any star = 90°— its
polar distance.
(3) Let Z e H be an arc of a vertical circlet passing through a circumpolar
star, e, and let H be the point where this arc meets the horizon N E S W.
Then the angle N Z H at the zenith Z, or N O H at the point O of observa
tion, between the plane N Z O of the meridian and the plane H Z O of th©
star's vertical circle (or the arc N H), is called the azlmutlkt of the star.
If this angle N O H be laid off from O H, on the ground, the line O N will be
in the plane of the meridian N Z S, or will be a nortbandsontii
llne.
(4) When a star is on the meridian Z N of the observer, above or below
the pole P, as at u or ^, it is said to be at its upper or lower culmina
tion, respectively. Its azimuth is then = 0, tne line O H coinciding with
the meridian line O N.
(5) When the star has reached its greatest distance east or west ftom the
pole, as at e or w, it is said to be at its eastern or western eloni^A

t A great circle is that section of the surface of a sphere which is formed
by a plane passing through the center of the sphere. A vertical circle is a
great circle passing through the zenith Z.
I Astronomers usually reckon azimuth from the south point around
through the west, north, and east points, to south again ; but for our pur
pose it is evidently much more convenient to reckon it f^om the north
point, and either to the east or to the west, as the case may be.
II The point N, on the horizon; is called the north point, and must not
be confounded with the north pole P.

which has elapsed since it was in upper culmination.'"
(7) Evidently the azimuth of a star is continually changing. In cir
cumpolar stars it varies from OP to maximum (at elongation) and back to
(P twice daily, as the star appears to revolve about the pole ; but when the
star is near either elongation the change in azimuth takes place so slowly
that, for some minutes, it is scarcely perceptible, the star appearing to
travel vertically.
(8) Given the polar distance of a star and the latitude of the point of

by the formula.f
Sine of azimuth of star =

January 1 in each third year from 1900 to 1990 inclnsive, the log cosines

interpolation.*
(12) By olMervatlon of Polaris at elonntlon. This method
has the convenience, that at and near elongation the star appears to travel
vertically for some minutes, its azimuth, during that time, remaining
practically constant : but during certain parts of tne year (see Table 1;, the
elongations of Polaris take place in daylight; so that this method cannot
then be used.  See (18), (19), (22). Nor can it be used at any time in places
south of about 4° N. lat., because there Polaris is not visible.
(18) The approximate times of elongation of Polaris for certain dates,
in 1900, are given in Table 1, with instructions for finding the times for
other dates. Or, watch Polaris in connection with any of those stars which
are nearly in line with it and the pole, as Delta, Mizar, and Alioth. See
Fig. 3. The time of elongation is approximated, with sufficient clofleneas
for the determination of the azimuth, by the cessation of apparent hori
zontal motion duriftg the observation.
(14) From fifteen to thirty minutes before the time of elongation, have
the transit, see (21). set up and carefully centered over a stake previously
driven and marked with a center point. The transit must be in adjust
ment, especially in regard to the second adjustment, p. 294, or that or the
horizontal axis, by which the line of collimation is made to describe a ver
tical plane when the transit is leveled and the telescope is swung upwMrd

em elongation, and mce versa, keeping the hair upon the star, as nearly as
may be. As elongation is approached, the star will appear to move more
and more slowly. When it appears to travel vertically along the hair, it
has practically reached elongation, and the vertical plane of the transit,
vriih the vertical hair cutting the star, is in the plane of the star's vertical circle.
Depress the telescope, and fix a point in the line of sight, preferably 300
feet or more distant from the transit.f Immediately reverse the transit,

the tail of the great bear, as shown on celestial maps, so Polaris and the

nearly midway and in line between Delta and Mizar. Polaris forms, with
three other and less brilliant stars, a quite symmetrical cross, with Polaris
at the end of the right arm. In Fig. 3 this cross is inverted. Its height is

t The stake must be illuminated. This may be done bv throwina' light
upon that side of the stake which faces the transit, or, better, by holding a
sheet of white paper behind the stake, with a lantern behind the paper. In
the latter case, the crosshairs of the transit, as well as the stake, and the
knifeblade or pencilpoint with which the assistant marks it, show out
dark against the illuminated surface of the paper.

•gain depress, and» if the line of sight then coincides perfectly with the
mark first set, both are in the plane of the star's vertical circle. If not,
note where the line of sight does strike, and make a third mark, midway
between the two. The line of sight, when directed to this third mark, is in
the required plane, from which the azimuth, found as in (8), has yet to be
laid off to the meridian, to the l^ from. eaMem elongation, and vice vena,
(17) To avoid driving the distant stake and marking it during the night,
a fixed target at any convenient point may be used, and the horizontal
angle formed between the line ox sight to the star and that to the target
merely noted, for use in ascertaining and laying off the azimuth of the
tarvet.
(19) By otMervation of Polaris at cnlmtnaiioii. Owing to
its greater difficulty, this method will generally be used only when that
by elongation is impracticable. It consists in watching Polaris in connec
tion with another circumpolarstar (such asMizar *or Delta) until Polaris is
seen in the same vertical ]^ane with such star, and then waiting a short and
known time T, as follow8,t until Polaris reaches calminatlon, where
upon Polaris is stehted and the line of collimation is in the meridian. At
their upper culniinations, Mizar and Delta are too near the zenith to be
conveniently observed at latitudes north of about 25° and BOP respectively.
At their lower culminations they are too near the horizon to be used to
advantage at places much below about 88° of N. latitude. In general.
Delta is conveniently obeexved at lower culmination ttom. February to
August, and Mizar during the rest crf^kie year.

Table 1 gives the mean solar times of upper culmination of Polaris on the
1st of each month in 1900, and directions ibr ascertaining the times on other
dates ; and Table 2 gives the azimuths of Polaris corresponding to different
values of its hour angle in civil or mean solar time, for different latitudes
fh)m 30° to 50°, and for the years 1901 and 1906. For hour angles and lati
tudes intermediate of those in the table, the azimuths may be taken by
interpolation. See Caution and formula, p. 290.
(SO) The local time} of observation must be accurately known, and the
time of the preceding upper culmination (as obtained from Table 1) dedu<!ted
from it. The difference is the hour angle. If the hour angle, thus found,
is 11 h. 58 m. or less, the star is west of the meridian. If it is greater than
11 h. 58 m., the star is east of the meridian. In that case deduct the hour
angle from 28 h. 56 m. and enter the table with the remaiTuier as the hour
an^le. See Fig. 1.
(»1) Where great accuracy is not required, Polaris may be observed by
means of a plumbline and sight. A brick, stone, or other heavy object
will answer perfectly as a plumbbob. It should hang in a pail of water.
A compass sight, or any other device with an accurately straight slit about
1/16 inch wide, may be used. The sight must remain always perfectly verti
cal, but must'be adiustable horizontally for a few feet east and west. The
plumbline and sight should be at least 15 feet apart, and so placed that the
star and plumbline can be seen together through the sight, throughout the
observation. The plumbline must be illuminated. It is well to arrange
all these matters on an evening preceding that of the observation. When
the star reaches elongation, the sight must be fastened in range with the
plumbline and the star. From the line thus obtained, lay off the azimuth ;
to the toest for ea^em elongation, and vice versa.
{fSS9) Bjr any star at eqnal altitudes. This method, applicable
to south as well as to north latitudes, consists in observing a star when it
is at any two equal altitudes, £. and W. of the meridian, thus locating, on the
horizon, two points of equal and opposite aziQiuth. The meridian will
be midway between the two points.
• Mizar will be recognized by the small star Alcor, close to it.

. Owing to changes in the position of Polaris during the year, the positions
given in the table may at times be in error by as much as a minute. The
error is greater in the nigher latitudes.
Having the north polar distance,/), of a star, and the latitude, L, of the
point of observation, we have, declination of star = 6 = 90° — p ; and ^e
aslmutb, a, of the star, corresponding to any hour angle, a, may be

The declinations, fi, of Polaris are given in the U. S. Ephemeris or Nautical
Almanac. From these the polar distances may be obtained more accurately
than from our Table 3.
Caution. When it is desired to determine the meridian within one
minute of arc, it is well to use more than one method and compare the
results. For example, observe Polaris both E. and W. of the meridian, aitd
a star at equal altitudes south of the zenith.

T T is the oater reTOlTlng: spindle, cast in one with the support*
Ing^plate Z 2^, to which is fastenea the s^radnated limb O. The limb
extends beyond the compassbox, and thus admits of larger graduations than
would otherwise be obtainable, to wis the Inner revolving^ spindle. At
its top it has a broad flange, to which is fastened the vernier plate P. To the
latter are fastened the corapassbox C, the two bubbletubes M M, the standards
y Y, supporting the telescope, &c. Each bubbletube is supported and adjusted
by four capstanhead nuts, two at each end. The bent strip, curving over the
tnbe, protects the glass from accidental blows in swinging the telescope.
<k»iatrol of motions of ir>*»dnAl«d limb O O and wernler
plate P. — ^The tangentscrew 6 and a spiral spring (not shown) opposite to it
are fixed to the graduated limb 00, and hold between them a projection y from
the loose collar t, which is thus confined to the limb and made to travel with it.
The clampscrew H passes through the collar t and presses against the small lug
shown at its inner end. When H is tightened, this lug is pressed against the
fixed spindle U U, to which the graduated limb is thus made fast. A slow mo
tion may, however, still be given to the limb by means of the tangentscrew G.
The motion of the vernier plate P over the graduated limb O is simUarly
governed by the tangentscrew 6 and its spiral spring (not shown), fixed to the
ternier plate P, and the clampscrew e, which passes tnrough the collar z, and
{>re88es against the small lug shown at its inner end. In Heller and Brightly's
nstraments, the screw b is provided with means for taking up its ** wear," or
"lostmotion."
There are two verniers. One is shown at ja. Fig 1. Both may be read, and
their mean taken, when great accuracy is required. Ivory reflectors, c, facilitate
their reading. Before the instrument is moved from one place to another, the
eompaasneedle, ib. Fig 2, should always be pressed up against the glass cover
of the compassbox by means of the upright miUedhead screw seen on the ver^
nierplate m Fig 1, Just to the right of the nearest standard. The pivot^point is
thus protected from injury.
R, Fig 1, is a ring with a clamp (the latter not shown) for holding the telescope
in any required position. It is oest to let the eyeend. 1C, of the telescope revolve
dowHiffard, as otherwise the shade on O, if in use, may fall off. The tangentscrew,
il. moves a vert arm attached to R, and is thus used for slightly changing the
elevation of the telescope. In the arm is a slit like that seen in the vernierarm
L Bt mesns of the screw D. the movable vernierarm Y may be clamped at
tDT desired point on the vertical limb g. When (P of the vernier is placed at
9(Pon the arc ^, and the index of the opposite arm is placed over a small notch
on the horizontal brace (not seen in our figs) of the standards, the two slits will
be opposite each other, and may be used for laying off offsets, oc, at rightangles
to the line of sight.
One end, R, of the telescope axis rests in a movable box, under which is a screw.
By means of the screw, the box may be raised or lowered, and the axis thus ad
justed for very slight derangements of the standards. For E, B, O, and A, see
iaulf p 306. a is a dustguard for the objectslide.

in a ring inside the telescope, and hold the ring in position. Across the ring are
itretched two additional horizontal hairs, called stadia hairs, placed at such a
distance apart, vertically, that they will subtend say 10 divisions of a graduated rod
placed 100 ft from the instrument, 15 divisions at 150 ft, Ac. They are thus used for
asttsuring hor and sloping distances.

294 THE engineer's transit.
To aAinmt a plain Transit*
When either a lerel or a transit is purchased, it is a good precaution (but one
which the writer has never seen alluded to) to first screw the oltjectglass firmly home
to its place ; and then make a short continuous scratch upon the ringt>f the glass, and
upon its slide ; so as to be able to see at any time when at work, that the glass is
always in the same position with regard to the slide. For if, after all the adjustments
are completed, the position of the glass should become clumged, (as it is apt to be if
unscrewed, and afterward not screwed up to the same precise spot,) the acyustments
may thereby become materially deranged ; especially if the objectglass is eccentric,
or not truly ground, which is often the case. Such scratches should be prepared by
the maker. In making adjustments, as well as when using a transit or lerel, be
careful that the eyeglass and objectglass are so drawn out that there shall be ne
parallax. The eyeglass must first be drawn out so as to obtain perfect distinctness
of the crosshairs ; it must not be disturbed afterward; but the objectglass must
be moved for different distances.
First, to ascertain tliat tlie bnbbletnbes, M Bf • are placed
parallel to the vernierplate, and that therefore when both bubbles are in
the centers of their tubes the axis qf the inst is vert. By means of the four levelling
screws, K, bring both bubbles to the centers of their tubes in one position of the
inst ; then turn the upper parts of the inst halfway round. If the Dubbles do not
remain in the center, correct half the error by means of the two capstannuta
rr; and the other half by the levellingscrews K. Repeat the trial until both
bubbles remain in the center while the inst is being turned entirely around on
its spindle.
Second, to see that the standards have snfTered no deranire
ment ; that is, that they are of equal height and perpendicular to the vernier
plate, as they always are when they leave the makers hands. Level the inst
perfectly ; then direct the intersection of the hairs to some point of a high object
(as the top of a steeple) near by ; clamp the inst by means of screws H and e,
and lower the telescope until the intersection strikes some point of a low object.
(If there is none sucn drive a stake or chainpin, Ac, in the line.) Then un
clamp either H or e, and turn the upper parts of the inst halfway round ; fix the
intersection again upon the high point ; clamp ; lower the telescope to the low
point. If the intersection still strixes the low point, the standards are in order.
If not, correct oneltalf of the difference by means of the adjustingblock and
screw at the end, R, of the telescope axis. Fig. 1, and repeat the trial de novo,
resetting the stake or chainpin at each trial. If the inst has no adjustingblock
for the axis, it should be returned to the maker for correction of any derange
ment of the standards.
A transit may be used for running ^raight lines^ even if the standards become
slightly bent, by the process described at the end of the fourth adjustment.
Third, to see that the crosshairs are traly vert and hor
^rhen the inst is level. When the telescope inverts, the crosshairs are
nearer the eyeend than when it shows objects erect. The maker takes care to place
the crosshairs at rightangles to each other in their ring, or diaphragm ; and gene
rally he so places the ring in the telescope, that when levelled, they shaJl be reii
and hor. sometimes, however, this is neglected ; or the ring may by accident be
come turned a little. To be certain that one hair is vert, (in which case the other
must, by construction, be hor,) after having adjusted the bubbletubes, level the in«
strnment carefully, and take sight with the telescope at a plumbline, or other yert
straight edge. If the vert hair coincides with this object,
it is, sofar^ in adjustment ; but if not, then loosen sKghtlv
only two adjacent screws of the four, pp i t. Fig 1 ; and
with a knife, key, or other small Instrument, tap verj
gently against the screwheads, so as to turn the rin^ »
little in the telescope; persevering until the hair be*
comes truly vertical. When this icr done, tighten the
screws. In the absence of a plumbline, or vert stsulgfat
edge, sight the crosshair at a Tery small distinol
point; and see if the hair still cuts that point, when
the telescope is raised or lowered by revolring it on
its axis.
The mode of performing the foregoing will be readily
understood ft'om this Fig, which represents a section across the top part of the tele>
acope, and at the crosshairs. The hairring, or diaphragm, a; vert hair, v; tele*
scope tube, g ; ring outside of telescope tube, d; & is one of the four capstMiheaded
screws which hold the hairring, a, in its place, and also serve to a^jnst it. The
lower ends of these screws work In the thickness of the hairring; so that when
they are loosened somewhat, they do not lose their hold on the ring. Small

mO
washers, c, are placed under the heads h of the screws. A space ^ y is left around
each screw where it passes through the telescope tube, to allow the screws aud ring
together to be moved a little sideways when the screws b are slightly loosened.
Fourth, to see tliat the wertical hair is In the line of colU
matlon. Flant the tripod firmly upon the ground, as at a. Level the inst ;
clamp it; and direct the vert hair by means of tangentscrew O ffigs. 1 and 2)
upon some convenient object h\ or if there is none such, drive a thin stake, or a
enninpin. Then revolving the telescope vert on its Hxis, ^
observe some object, as c, where the vert hair now strikes ; ^ a ^^^
or if there is none, place a second pin. Uoclamp the instru « «^^
ment by the clampscrew H ; and turn the whole upper • "
part of it around until the ven hair again strikes b. JPig, 4,
Clamp again ; and again revolve the telescope vert on its
axis. If the vert h»ir now strikes e, as it did before, it shows that c is really
at ; and that 6, a, e, are in IM^ same straight line ; and therefore this adjustment
is in order. If not, observe where it does strike, say at m, (the dist a m being
taken equal to a c,) and place a pin there also. Measure m c ; and place a pin
at v, in tne line m c, making m v <— onefourth of m c. Also put a pin at 0, half
way between m and c, or in range with a and b. By means of the two hor
screws that move the ring carrying the crosshairs, adjust the vert hair until it
euts V. Now repeat the fntire operation ; and persevere until the telescope, after
being directed to b, shall stVike the same object 0, both Hmes, when revolved on
its axis. See whether the movement of the ring in this 4th adjustment has dis
turbed the verticality of the hair. If it has, repeat the 3d adjustment. Then re
peat the 4th, if necessary ; and so on until both adijustments are found to be right
at the same time. Thus a straight line mav be run, even if the hairs are out of
adjustment ; but with somewhat more trouble. For at each station, as at a, two
backsights, and two foresights, a c and a m, may be taken, as when making the
adjustment ; and the point 0, halfway between c and m, will be in the straight line.
The inst may then be moved to 0, and the two backsights be taken to a ; and so on.
Angles measured by the transit, whether vert or hor, will evidently not be
tifected by the hairs being out of a4justment, provided either that the vert
liair is truly Tert. or that we use the inler^oHon of the hairs when measuring.

When a transit is intended to be used for surveying farms, Ac, or for retracing
lines of old surveys, it is very useful to set the compass so as to allow for the ** va
riation" during the interval between the two surveys. For this purpose a
'' TArlatton vernier " is added to such transiCB ; and also to the oompaos.
When the graduations of a transit are figured, or numbered, so as to read both

double ; that is, it also is graduated and numbered from its sero both ways. In thia
case, if the angle is measured from zero toward the right hand, the reading must be
made from the right hand half of the vernier ; and vice versa. If the figuring la
single, or only in one direction, from zero to 360^, then only the single vernier la
necessary, as the angles are then measured only in the direction that the figuring
counts. ICngineers differ in their preferences for various manners of figuring the
graduations. The writer prefers from zero each way to 180^, with two double ver
niers.
To replace crosshairs in a IcTel, or transit. Take out tiie tube
from the eye end of the telescope. Looking in, notice which side of the oroM
hair diaphragm is turned toward the eye end. Then loosen the four screws which
hold the diaphragm, so as to let the latter fall out of the telescope. Fasten on new
hairs with beeswax, varnish, glue, or gumarabic water, Ac. This requires care.
Then, to return the diaphiagm to its place, press firmly into one of the screwholes
on the circumf of the diaphragm itself, the end of a piece, of stick, long enough to
reach easily into the telescope as far as to where the diaphragm l^Iongs. By this
stick, as a handle, insert the diaphragm edgewise to its place in me telescope, and hold
it there until two cpposUe screws are put in place and screwed. Then draw the stick
out of the hole in the diaphragm ; and with it turn the diaphragm until the same
side presents itself toward the eye end as before ; then put in the other two screws.
The socalled cross hairs are actually spiderweb, so fine as to be barely visible to
the naked eye. Holler A Brightly use very fine platina wire, which is much better.
Human hair is entirely too coarse.
To replace a spiritlevel, or bnbble^lass. Detach the level from
the instmment; draw off its sliding ends; push out the broken glass vial, and the
cement which held it ; insert the new one, with the proper side up (the upper side
is always marked with a file by the maker); wrapping some paper around its ends,
if it fits loosely. Finally, put a little putty, or melted beeswax over the ends of the
vial, to secure it against moving in its tube.
In purchasing instruments, especially when they are to be used far from a maker,
it is advisable to provide extras of such parts as may be easily broken or lost ; such
as glass compasscovers, and needles; atjQusting pins; level vials; magniflen, Ao,

called a toate?ur. It has its own clamp, and tangentscrew. Its use is to ascertain
whether the sero of that limb has moved during the measurement of hor angles.
When, previously to beginning the measurement, the zero and upper telescope are
directed to^inund the first object, point the lower telescope to any small distant
object, and then clamp it. During the subsequent measurement, look through i^
from time to time, to be sure that it still strikes that object ; thus proving that nt
slipping has occurred.
THE BOX OR POCKET SEXTANT.
Ths portability of the pocket sextant, and the fact that It reads to single minutes,
render it at times very useful to the engineer. By it, angles can be measured while
in a boat, or on horseback ; and in many situations which preclude the use of a
transit. It is useful for obtaining latitudes, by aid of an artificial horizon. When
closed, it resembles a cylindrictu brass box, about 3 inches in diameter, and 1)^
inches deep. This box is in two parts ;
by unscrewing which, then inverting
one i>art,,and then screwing them to
gether again, the lower part becomes a
handle for holding the instrument.
Looking down upon its top when thus
arranged, we see, as in this figure, a
movable arm I C, called the index,
which turns on a center at C, and car
ries the vernier Y at its other end. Q
6 is the graduated arc or limb. It
actually subtends about 13P, but is di
vided into about 146^. Its zero is at
one end. Its graduations are not shown
in the Fig.
Attached to the index is a small mov
able lens, (not shown in the figure,)
likewise revolving around C, for read
ing the flue divisions of the limb. When
measuring an angle, the index is moved
by turning the milledhead P of a
pinion, which works in a rack placed within the box. The eye is applied to a eir*
cnlar hole at the side of the box, near A. A small telescope, about 3 inches long,
; accompanies the instrument; but may generally be dispensed with. When so, the
eyehole at A should be partially closed by a slide which has a very small eyehole
in it ; and which is moved by the pin A, moving in the curved slot. Another slide,
at the nde of the box, carries a.dark glass for covering the eyefaole when observing
the ran. When the telescope is used, it is fastened on by the milledhead screw T.
The top part shown in our figure, can be separated from the cylindrical part, by
removing 3 or 4 small screws around its edge ; and the interior can then be exam
ined, and cleaned if necessary. Like nautical, and other sextants, this one bm
two principal glasses, both of them mirrors. One, the Indexfplass, is attached
to the underside of the index, at C; its upper" edge being indicated by the
two dotted lines. The other, the MoriaonKliMiS) (because, when meas
uring the vert angles of celestial bodies, it is directed toward the horizon,) is also
within the box; the position of its upper edge being shown by the dotted lines at
R. The horizonglass is silvered only halfway down ; so that one of the observed
objects may.be seen directly through its lower half, while the image of the other
object is seen in the upper half, reflected from the indexglass. That the instrument
may be in a4justment, ready for use, these two glasses must be at right angles to the
plane of the instrument ; that is, to the under side of the top of the box, to which they
are attached; and must also be parallel to each other, when the zeros of .the vernier
and of the Umb coincide. The indexglass is already permanently fixed by the
ma^T, and requires no other a4ju8tment. But the horizonglass has two adjust
ments, which are made by a key like that of a watch, and having a milledhead K.
It is screwed into the top of the box, so as to be always at hand for use. When
needad, it is unscrewed. This key fits upon two small squareheads, (like that for
298
THE COMPASS.
winding a watch;) one of which is ihown at S; while the other is near it, but on the
SIDE of the box. These squares are the heads of two small screws. Jf the
horlEon glass H should, aa in this sketch, (where it is shown endwise,) not be at
right angles to the top U HJ of the box, it is brought right by turning the square
bead S of the screw S T ; and if, after being so far rectified, it still is not parallel to
thn indexglass when the zeros coincide, it is moved
a little backward or forward by the mjuare head
at the side.
To adjust a box sextant, bring the two
aeros to coincide precisely ; then look through the
eyehole, and the lower or unsilvered part of the
horixonglasB, at some distant object. If the instru
ment is in adjustment, the object thus seen directly,
will coincide precisely with its reflected image,
seen at the same time, at the same spot. But if it
is not in ac^ustment, the two will appear separated
either hor or vert, or both, thus, * • ; in which case
apply the key E to the squarehead S ; and by turning it slightly in whichever direc
tion may be necessary, still looking at the otjject and its ima^e^ bring the two into a hor
position, or on a level with each other, thus, * •. Then apply the key to the square
head in the side of the box; and by turning it slightly, bring the two to coincide
perfectly. The instrument is then ai^justed.
In some instruments, the hor glass has a hinge at v, to allow it play while being
adjusted by the single screw S T ; but others dispense with this hinge, and use two
screws like S on top of the box, in addition to the one in the side.
If a sextant is used for measuring vert angles by means of an artificial
boriEon, the actual altitude wilF be but onehalf of that read off on the
limb ; because we then read at once both the actual and the reflected angle. The
great objection to the sextant for engineering purposes, is that it does not measure
angles horizontally, as the transit dues ; unless when the observer, and the two ob>
jects happen to be in the same hor plane.
Thus an observer with a sextant at A, if
measuring the angle subtended by the
mountainpeaks B and C, must hold the
graduated plane of the sextant in the
plane of A B C ; and must actually meas
^^ ,' ,' I ^ ; ure the angle BAG; whereas what he
g^k^*^':' ' wants is the hor angle nAm. This is
^f""" 'Wl greater than BAG, because the dista An
A and A m, are shorter than A B and A G.
The transit gives the hor angle n A m, be
<iau8e its graduated plane is first fixed hor by the levellingscrews ; and the subse
Suent measurement of the angle is not affected by his directing merely the line of
[ght upward, to any extent, in order to fix it upon B and G. For more on this sub
ject ; and for a method of partially obviating this objection to the sextant, see the
note to Example 2, Case 4, of " Trigonometry."
Tbe nautical sextant, used on ships, is constructed on the same principle
as the box sextant ; and its adjustments are very similar. In it, also, the index
glass is permanently fixed by the maker ; and the horizonglass has the two adjust
ments of the box sextant. It also has its dark glasses for looking at the sun ; and
a small eighthole, td be used when the telescope is dispensed with.

THE COMPASS.
To adjust a Compass*
The first adjustment is that of the bubbles. Plant firmly ; and level th«
Instrument, in any position ; that is, bring the bubbles to the centers of their tubes.
Then turn the instrument halfway round. If tlie bubbles then remain at the cen
ters, they are in adjustment;. but if not, correct onehalf the diff" in each bubble,
by means of the adjustingscrews of the tubes. Level the instrument again ; tun
it half roimd ; and if the bubbles still do not remain at the center, the atiUusting
■crews must be again moved a little, so as to rectify half the remaining diff. Gener*
THE COMPASS. 299
ally several trials must be thus made, until the bubbles will remain at the oente
while the compass is being turned entirely around.
Seeond adjustmeiit* Level the compass, and then see that the needle it
hor; and if not, make it so by means of the small piece of wire which is wrapped
around it ; sliding the wire toward the high end. A needle thus horizontally ad
justed at one place, will not remain so if removed fietr north or south from that place.
If carried to tiie north, the north end will dip down ; and if to the south, the soutii
end will do so. The sliding wire is intended to counteract this.
Tliird a^Jnatment. This is always fixed right at first by the maker; that
is, the sights, or slits for sighting through, are placed at right angles to the compass
plate ; so that when the latter is levelled by the bubbles, the sights
are vert. To test whether they are so, hang up a plumbline ; and
having levelled the compass, take sight at the line, and see if the
slits coincide with it. If one or both slits should prove to be
out of plumb, as shown to an exaggerated extent in this sketch.
It should be unscrewed from the compass, and a portion of its foot
on the high side be filed or ground off, as per the dotted line ; or
as a temporary expedient, a small wedge may be placed under the
low side, so as to raise it.
Foortb BdJaBtmeilt, to straighten the needle, if it should become bent.
The compass being levelled, and the needle hor, and loose on its pivot, see whether
its two ends continue to point to exactly opposite graduations, (that is, graduations
18€P apart ;) while the compass is turned completely around. If it does, the needle
is straight ; and its pin is in the center of the graduated circle ; bat if it does not,
then one or both of these require adjusting. First level the compass. Then turn It
until some graduation (say 90^) comes precisely to the north end of the needle. If
the south end does not then point precisely to the opposite 90° division, lift off the
needle, and bend the pivotpoint until it does ; remembering that every time said
point is bent, the compass must be turned a hairsbreadth so as to keep the north end
of the needle at its 90^ mark. Then turn the compass halfway round, or until the
opposite 90° mark comes precisely to the north end of the needle. Make a fine pen*
<^ mark where the touth end of the needle now points. Then take off the needle,
and bend it until its south end points ha^f^ay between its 90° mark and. the pencil
mark, while its north end is kept at 90° by moving the eompass round a hairsbreadth.
Tlie needle will then be straight, and must not be altered in making the following,
adjostment, although it will not yet cut opposite degrees.
Flfih a4ius^i»eiit, of the pivotpin. After being certain that the needle is
straight, turn the compass around until a part is arri ved at where the two ends of the
needle happen to cut opposite degrees. Then turn the compass quarter way around,
or through 90°. If the needle then cuts opposite degrees, the pivotpoint is already
in adjustment ; but if the needle does not so cut, bend the pivotpoint until it does.
Bapeat, if necessary, until the needle cuts opposite degrees while being turned entirely
•round.
Oare and nicety of observation are necessary in making these adjustments properly ;
because the entire enor to be rectified is, in itself^ a minute quantity; and the novice
it must be held parallel to the graduated circle. Otherwise annoying errors of
several minutes will be made in a single observation ; and the accumulation of two
or three such errors, arising from a cause unknown to him, may compel him to
abandon the ac^ustments in despair. This su^estion applies also to the reaiding of
angles taken by the transit, Ac ; although the errors are not then likely to be so
great as in the case of the compass. In purchasing a magnifier for a compass, see
that DO part of it, as hinges, or rivets, are made of iron ; for such would change the
direction of the needle.
If the sightslits of a compass are not fixed by the maker in line with the two
opposite zeros, the engineer cannot remedy the defect. This can be ascertained by
passing a piece of fine thread through the slits, and observing whether it stands
precisely over the zeros.

Electrietty, either atmospheric, or excited by rubbing the glass ooy«r of
the compass box, sometimes gives trouble. It may be removed by touching the
glass with the moist tongue or finger.
DEMAOHETIZATIOV.
The needle, if of sqft metal, Bometimeo loses part of its magnetism, and consequently
does not work well. It may be restored by simply drawing the north pole of a
common magnet (either straight or horseshoe) about a dozen times, from the center
to the end of the south half of the needle ; and the south pole, in the same way, along
the north half; pressing the magnet gently upon the needle. After each stroke,
remove the magnet several inches from the needle, while bringing it back to the
center for making another stroke. Each half of the needle in turn, while being thus
operated on, should be held flat upon a smooth hard surface. Sluggish action of the
needle is, however, more generally produced by the dulling or other iujury of the
point of the pivot. RemagnetiEing will throw the needle out of balance ; which must
be counteracted by the sliding wire.
In order to prevent mistakes by readlnn^ sometimes from one end,
and sometimes from the other end of the needle, it is best to always point the N of
the compassbox toward the object whose bearing is to be taken ; and to read off
from the north end of the needle. This is also more accurate.
OONTOUB LINES.
A OOHTOUB um is a curved hor one, every point in which represents the same level ;
thus each of the contour lines SSc, 91c, 94c, itc. Fig 1, indicates that every point in
the ground through which it is traced is at the same level ; and that that level or
height is everywhere 88, 91, or 94 ft above a certain other level or height called
datum ; to which all others are referred.
Frequently the level of the starting point of a survey is taken as being 0, or zero,
or datum ; and if we are sure of meeting with no points lower than it, this answers
every purpose. But if there is a probability of many lower points, it is better to
assume the starting point to be so far above a certain supposed datum, that none of
these lower points shall become minus quantities, or bdow said supposed datum or
zero. The only object in this is to avoid the liability to error which arises when
some of the levels are » or plus ; and some — ^ or minus. Hence we may assume
the level of the starting point to be 10, 100, 1000, Ac, ft above datum, according to
circumstances.
The vert dists between each two contour lines are supposed to be equal ; and in
railroad surveys through wellknown districts, where the engineer knows that his
actual line of survey will not require to be much changed, the dist may be 1 or 2 ft
only ; and the lines need not be laid down for widths greater than 100 or 200 ft on
each side of his centerstakes. But in regions of which the topography is compara'
tively unknown ; and where consequently unexpected obstacles may occur which
require the line to be materially changed for a considerable dist back, the observa
tions should extend to greater widths ; and for expedition the vertical dists apart
may be increased to 3, 5, or even 10 ft, depending on the character of the country,
Ac. AlsOj when a survey is made for a topographical map of a State, or of a county,
vert dists of 5 or 10 ft will generally suffice.
Let the line A B, Fig 1, starting from 0, represent three stations (S 1, S 2, 8 3,) of
the center line of a railroad survey ; and let the numbers 100, 108, 101, 104, along
that line denote the heights at the stakes above datum, as determined by levelling.
Then the use of the contour lines is to show in the offlcH what would be the effect
of changing the surveyed center line A B, by mrving any part of it to the right oi

Iflft hand.* Thug, if it should be moved 100 ft to the left, the starting point wonl^
be on ground about 6 ft higher than at present ; inasmuch as its leyel would then
be about 106 ft above dktum, instead of 100. Station 1 would be about 7 ft higher,
or 110 ft instead of 103. Station 2 would be about 7 ft higher, or 108 ft instead of
101. If the line b<« thrown to the right, it will plainly be on lower ground.
The field obeervat^'ons for contour lines are sometimes made with the spiritlevel;
but more frequently oy a slopeman. with a straight 12ft graduated rod, and a slope
instniment, or clinometer. At each station he lays his rod upon the ground, as
FIg.l.
•
nearbr a^ right angles to the center line A B as he can Judge by eye ; and placing
the slope instrument upon it, he takes the angle of the slope of the ground to the
nearest ^ of a degree. He also observes how far beyond the rod the slope continuee
the same ; and with the rod he measures the dist. Then laying down the rod at that
Kint also, he takes the next slope, and measures its length ; and so on as far as may
Judged necessary. His notes are entered in Ids fieldbook as shown in Fig 2 ; the
angles of the slopes being written above the lines, and their lengths below ; and
should be accompanied by such remarks as the locality suggests ; such as woods,
rocks, maryih. sand, field, garden, across small run, ftc, Ac.

It is not abeolately necessary to represent the slopes roughly in the fleldbook, aa
in Fig 2; for by usin^ the sign + to signify "up;" — "4own;" and = "'leTel,*'
the slopes may be vrnt
ten in a straight line,
as in Fig 2^.
The notes naving been
taken, the preparation
of the contour lines by
means of them, is of
course officework ; and
is usually done at the
same time as the draw
ing of the map, &c. The.
field observations at each
station are then sepa
rately drawn by protrac
tor and scale, as shown
in Fig 3 for the starting
point O. The scale should not be less than about ^ inch to a ft, if anything Iik«
accuracy is aimed at. Suppose that at said station the slopes to the right, taken in
their order, are, as in Fig 2, U°, 4°, and '26P ; and those to the left, 20°, lO^, and IQP ;
and their lengths as in the same Fig. Draw a hor line h o. Fig 3 ; and consider the
center of it to be the stationstake. From this point as a center, lay off these angles
with a protractor, as shown on tho arcs in Fig 3. Then beginning say on the right
hand, with a parallel ruler draw the first dist a c, at its proper slope of 16^ ; and of
its proper length, 45 ft, by scale. Then the same with c y and yt.Do the same with
those on the left hand. We then have a crosssectitm of the ground at 8ta 0. Then
on the map, as in Fig 1, draw a line as m n, or A 10, at right angles to the line of road,
and passing through tha stationstake. On this line lay down nie Jior dists a d, d «, s «,
ae^eg^gk^ marking them with a small star, as is done and lettered in Fig 1, at 8ta O.
When extreme accuracy is pretended to, these hor dists must be found by measure
on Fig 3 ; but as a general rule it will be near enough, when the slopes do not ex
ceed 10°, to assume them to be the same as the sloping diets measured in the field.
Next ascertain how high each of the points cy tint is above datum. Thus, measure
by scale the vert dist ae. Suppose it is found to be 5 ft ; or in other words, that e
is 5 ft below stationHBtake 0. Then since the level at stake is 100 ft above datum,
that at c must be 6 ft less, or 100 — 6 = 95 ft above datum ; which may be marked in
light leadpencU figures on the map, as at d, Fig 1. N6xt for the point y, suppose
we find « 2/ to be 11 ft, or y to be 11 ft below stake ; then its heiglit above datum
must be 100 — 11 =s 89 ; which also write in pencil, as at s. Proceed in the same
way with t. Next going to the left hand of the stationstake, we find « I to be say
2 ft ; but Z is above the level of the stationstake, therefore its height above datum is

done at several stations, we may draw in the contour lines of that portion by hand
thus: Suppose they are to represent vert heights of 3 ft. Beginning at Station O
(of which the height above datum is 100 ft) to lay down a contour line 103 ft abova
datum, we see at once that the height of 103 ft must be at ^, or at ^ the dist from «
to g. Make a light leadpencil dot at t ; and then go to the next fetation 1. Here
we see that the height of 103 ft coincides with the stationstake itself; place a dot
there, and go to Sta 2. The ^evel at this stake is 101 ; therefore the contour for lOP

ft mtut evidently be 2 ft higher, or at <, ^ of the dl^t fh>m Sta 2 to +104 ; theretiort
make a dot at i. Then go to Sta 3. Here the leTel being 104 aboye datum, the con
tour of 103 must be at y, or i of the diet from Sta 3 to +99 ; put a dot at y. Finally
draw by hand a curving line through ^ SI, i, and y ; and the contour line of 103 ft
ii done. All the others are prepared in the same way, one by one. The level of each
must be figured upon it at short intervals along the map, as at 103 c, 106 c, Ac
Or, instead of first placing the + points on the map,l;o denote the slope dists actu
ally measured upon the ground, we may at once, and with lees trouble, find and show
those only which represent the points ty S 1, t, y, Ac, of the contours themselves.
Thus, say that at any given stationstake, Fig 4, the level is 104; that the crosssec
tion c < of the ground has been prepared as before ; and that we want the hor dista
from the stake, to contour linea for 94, 97, 100 ft, Ac, 3 ft apart vert.
Draw a vert line t; 2, through the stationstake, and on it by scale mark levels
of 94, 97, 100, dba ft. This is readily done, inasmuch as we have the level 104 of
the stake already given. Through these levels draw the hor lines a. b, m, n, <&c.
to the groundslopes. Then these lines, measured by the scale, plainly give the
requirea dists.
When the ground is very irregular transversely, the crosssections must be
taken in the field nearer together than 100 ft. The preparation of contour lines
will be greatly facilitated by the use of paper ruled into small squares of not less
than about ^ inch to a side, for drawing the crosssections upon.
When the ground is very steep, it is usual to shade such portions of the map to
represent hillside. The closer together the contours come, the steeper of course
is the ground between them ; and the shading should be proportionally darker
at such portions. But for working maps it is best to omit the shading.
In surveys of wide districts, the transit instrument with a graduated vertical
circle or arc, g, p. 291, ia used for measuring the angles of slope, instead of
the common slopeinstrument.
In many cases, notes similar to the following will serve the purpose of contour
lines on railroad surveys.

THE LEVBU 307
■cope th«7 will appear to be mSsed. If first the lower one be looeened, and the npper
one tightened, the hor hair will be Mctnally raised, but apparently lowered. This is
because the glasses iu the eyepiece B reTerse the apparent position of objects intid€
cf the telescope ; which effect is obTiated, as regcurds exterior ol^Jects, by means of
the objectglass 0. This must be remembered when adjusting the crosshairs ; for if a
hair appears to strike too high, it must be raised still higher ; if it appears to be
already too &r to the right or left, it must be actually movcKl still more in the same
direction.
This remark, however, does not apply to teleacopn which make objects appear
iUTerted.
There is no danger of li^urlng the hairs by these motions, inasmuch as the four
screws act against the ring only, and do not come in contact with the hairs them
t^lves.
Under the telescope is the bubbletube D D. One end of this tube can be raised or
lowered slightly by means of the two capstanheaded nuts n n, one of which must
be looeened before the other is tightened. On top of the bubblo'tube are scratches
for showing when the bubble is central in the tube, frequently these scratches, or
marks, are made on a strip of brass placed above the tube, as in our fig. There are
several of them, to allow for the lengthening or shortening of the bubble by changes
of temperatuie. At the other end of the bubbletube are two smidl capstanscrews,
placed on opposite sides horizontally. The circular head of one of them is shown
near L By means of these two screws, that end of the tube can be slightly moved
hor, or to right or left. Under the bul>bletube is the bak Y F ; at one end of which,
as at y, are two large capstannuts to w, which operate upon a stout interior screw
which forms a prolongation of the Y. The holes in these nuts are lai^r than the
others, as they require a larger lever for turning them. If the lower nut is loosened
and the upper one tightened, the Y above is raised ; and that end of the telescope
becomes farther removed from the bar; and vice versa. Some makers place a similar
screw and nuts under both Ys ; while others dispense with the nuts entirely, and
substitute beneath one end of the bar a large circular milled head, to be turned by
the fingers. This, however, is exposed to accidental alteration, which should be
avo&ded.
When the portions above m are put upon m. and fastened bv the screw Y, all
the upper part may be swung round hor, in either direction, oy loosening the
elampserew H ; or such motion may be prevented by tightening thatecrew.
It frequently happens, after the telescope has been sighted very nearly upon an
object, and then clamped by H, that we wish to bring the crosshairs to coincide
more precisely with the object than we can readily do by turning the telescope by
kand: and in this case we uee the tanfrentticrew 5, by means of which a
Bliffht but steady motion may be given after the instrument is clamped. For
fuller remarks on the clamp and tangentscrews, see '* Transit."
The parallel plates m and S are operated bv four levelllnipHierews ;
three or which are seen in the figure, at K K. The screws work in sockets B;
which, aa weU as the screws, extend above the upper plate. When the instrument
is placed on the ground for levelling, it is well to set it so that the lower parallel
plate S shall be as nearly horizontal as can be roughly judged by eye ; in order
to avoid much turning of the levelling screws K ^ in making the upper plate
m hor. The lower plate S, and the brass oarts below it, are together called the
tripodtaead ; and, in connection with three wooden legs Q Q Q, constitute
the tripod. In the figure are seen the heads of wingnuts J which confine the
legs to the tripodhead. Under the center of the tripodhead should always be
placed a small ring, from which a plumbbob may be suspended. This is not
needed in ordinary levelling, but becomes useful when rangmg centerstakes, &c.
To adjast a Irevel.
This is a qnite simple operation, but requires a little patience. Be careful to avoid
thraininff any of the screws. The large Y nuts ie w sometimes require some force to
ttoH them ; but it should be applied by pressure, and not by blows. Before begin
rJDg to su^nst, attend to the o^ectglass, as directed in the first sentence under ^^ To
•i^nst a plain transit.**
Three at^nstments are necessary ; and rrnist be made in the following order:
First, that of tlie crossbairs ; to secure that their intersection shall
toatinue to strike the same point of a distant object, while the telescope is being
tnnu'd round a complete revolution in its Ys. This is called ac^usting the line
sf eolllmation, or sometimes, the line of sight; but it is not strictly the line
of (tight until all the adjustments are finished; for until then, the line of coUimation
vni not serve for taking levelling sights. If erossliairs brealK* see p 296.

Tbird, tbat of tbe Ts, by which the telescope and bubbletube a^re supported;
flo that the bubbletube, and line of sight, shall be perp to the yert axis of the instru
ment; so as to remain hor while the telescope is pointed to objects in diff directions,
as when taking back and fore sights.
To make tbe first adjastmenty or that of the crosshairs, plant the
tripod ^r/n2y upon the ground. In this adjustment it is not necessary to lerel the
instrument. Open the clips of the Ys ; unclamp ; draw out the eyeglass E, until
the crosshairs ieure aeen perfectty cUar ; sight the telescope toward some clear dis
tant point of an object ; or still better, toward some straight line, whether yert or
not. More the objectglass 0, by means of the milled head A, so that the object shsJI
be clearly seen, wltbout parallax, that is, without any apparent dancing
about of the crosshairs, if the eye is moved a little up or down or sideways. To
secure this, the objectglass alone is moved to suit different distances ; the eyeglass
is not to be changed after it lb once properly fixed upon the crosshairs. The neglect
of parallax is a source of frequent errors in levelling. Clamp ; and, by means of the
tangentscrew d, bring either one of the crosshairs to coincide x>reciM/y with the
object. Then gently, and without jarring, revolve the telescope naifway round in
its Ys. When this is done, if the hair still coincides precisely with the object, it is
in adjustment ; and we proceed to try tbe other hair. But if it does not coincide,
then by means of the i screws p, t, move the ring which carries the hairs, so as to
rectify, as nearly as can be judged hy eye, only onefuUf of the error; remembering
that the ring must be moved in the direction opposite to what appean to be the
right one ; unless the telescope is an inverting one. Then turn the telescope back
again to its former position : and again by the tangentscrew bring the crosshair to
coincide with the object. Then again turn the telescope halfway round as before.
The hair will now be found to be more nearly in its right place, but, in all probabil
ity, not precisely so ; inasmuch as it is difficult to estimate onehalf the error accu
rately by eye. Therefore a little more alteration of the ring must be made ; and it
may be necessary to repeat the operation several times, before the adjustment is
perfect. Afterward treat the other hair in precisely the same manner. When both
are adjusted, their intersection will strike the same precise spot while the telescope
is being turned entirely round in its Ys. This must be tried before the aci^ustment
can be pronounced perfect; because at times the adjustment of the second hair,
slightly deranges that of the first one ; especially if both were much out in the b»
ginning.
To make the second adjustment, or to place the bubbletube paralW
to the line of collimation. This consists of two dis>
tinct adjustments, one vert, and one hor. The first
of these is effected by means of the two nuts n n on
the vert screw at one end of the tube ; and the second
by tbe two hor screws at the other end,^, of the tube.
Looking at the bubbletube endwise, from t in tbe
foregoing Fig, its two hor adjustingscrews 1 1 are
seen as in this sketch. The larger capstanheaded
nut helov), has nothing to do with the adjustments ;
it merely hold^ the end of the tube in its place.
. To make the vert adjustment of the bubbletube, by means of the two nuts nn. Place
the telescope over a diagonal pair of the levellingecreWH K. K ; and clamp it there.
Open the clips of the Ys; and by means of the levelliugscrews bring the bubble to
the center of its tube. Lift the telescope gently out of the Ys, turn it end for end, and
put it back again in its reversed position. This being done, if tbe bubble still remains
at the center of its tube, this adjustment is in order ; but if it moves toward one end,
that end is too high, and must be lowered ; or else the other end must be rftised.
First, correct htdf the error by means of the levellingscrews K K, and then the re
maining half by means of the two small capstan>headed nuts n». To roiM the end
n, first loosen the upper nut and then tighten the lower one ; to do which, turn each
nut so tiiat the near side moves toward your right. To louwr it, first loosen the lowei
nut, then tighten ttie upper one, moving the lutar side of each nut toward your ^fU
Having thus brought the bubble to the middle again, again lift the telescope out of
its Ys ; turn it end for end, and replace it. The bubble will now settle nearer the
center than it did before, but will probably require still further adjustment. If so,
correct haif the remaining error by the levellingscrews, and half by the nuts, as be*
fhre; and so continue to repeat tbe operation until the bubble remidns at the cental
in both positions. For another method, see '* To adjust the long bubbletube,** p 2ML

with nhat of the telescope, as it usually is in new instruments. It is not eesily d»

ranged, except by blows. Have the bubbletube, as xxearly as may be, directly under
the telescope, or over the center of the bar T F. Bring the telescope over two of the
leTellingHScrews K K ; clamp it there ; center the bubble with said screws ; turn the
telescope in its Ts, say about ^ inch, bringing the bubbletube out from over the
center of the bar, first on one side, then on the other. If the bubble stays centered
irhile so swung out, this adjustment is correct. It it,runs towajrd opposite ends of its
tabe when swung out on opposite sides of the center, move the end t of the tube by
the two horizontal screws 1 1 until the bubble stays centered when the tube is swung
out on either side. If the bubble runs toward the same end of its tube on both sidesy
tiie tube is not truly cylindrical, but slightly conical,* so that if the telescope is
tamed in its Ts the bubble will leave the center, even when the horizontal a^just
ment is correct. It is known to be correct, in such tubes, if the bubble runs the Kune
diikmce from the center when swung out the same distance on each side.
Having made the horizontal adjustment, turn the telescope back in its Ys until the
bubbletube is over the bar. Bepeat the vertUxU adjustment (p 308), which may have
become deranged in making this horizontal one. Persevere until both adjustments
are found to be correct at the same time.
To mabe tibe tliird adjustment, or to a4just the heights of th« Ts, m
■s to make the line of coUimation parallel to the bar V F, or perp to the vert axis
of the instrument. The other adjustments being made, fasten down the clips of the
Ts. Make the instrument nearly level by means of all four of the levellingscrews
K. Place the telescope over two of the levellingscrews which stand diagonally;
and leave it there undamped. Then bring the bubble to the center of its tube, by
the two levellingscrews. Swing the upper part of the instrument halfway around,
BO that the telescope shall again stand over the same two screws; but end for end.
This done, if the bubble leaves the center, bring it halfway back by the large cap
stan nuts to, 10 ; and the other half by the two levellingscrews. Remember that to
raise the T, and the end of the bubble over «o, io, the lower tv must be loosened ; and
the upper one tightened ; and vice versa. Now place the telescope over the pttier
diagonal pair of levellingscrews; and repeat the whole operation with them, ilav
Ing completed it, again try with the first pair; and so keep on until the bubble re
mains at the center of its tube, in every position of the telescope.
Correct levelling may be performed even if all the foregoing adjustments are
out of order; provided each foresight he taken at preeiidy the tame distance from
the instrument as the backsight is. But a good leveller will keep his instrument always
in acyustment; and will test the ac^ustments at least once a day when at work. As
much, however, depends upon the rodman, or targetman, as upon the leveller. A rod
man who is careless about holding the rod vert, or about reading the sights correctly,
ibould he discharged without mercy.
The levellingscrews in many instruments become very hard to turn if dirty. Clean
with water and a toothbrush. Use no oil on field instruments.
Forma for level notebooks. When the distance is short, so as not to
fsqnire two sets of books, the following is perhaps as good as any.

Bat on pnblic works generally the original fieldbooks have only the first five cols.
After the grades have been determined by means of the profile drawn from these,
the re«nlta are placed in another book, which has only the first col and the last four.
In both cages, the righthand page is reserved for memoranda. The writer considers
it best, both witii the level and with the transit, to consider the term " Station " to
apply to the whole dist between two consecutive stakes; and that its number shall
be that vrrftten on the last stake. Thus, with the transit, Station 6 means the dist
fin>m stake 5 to stake d; that it has a bearing or ocnirse of so and so; and its length
is so and mo. And with the level, Station 6 also means the dist from stake 5 to stake
6; the backsight for that dist being taken at stake 5, and the Ibresight on stake
6; and thait the level, grade, cut, or fill is that at stake 6. The startingpoint of the
nwej, wbether a stake, or any thing else, we call and mark simply 0.
• This defect can be remedied only by removing the tube and inserting a correctly
ihaped one, and this is best done by an instrumentmaker ; but correct work can
be done in qpite of it, Ihus: Make all the acyustments as nearly correct as possible.
Level the instrument. By turning the telescope in its Ts, make the vertical hair
coincide with a plumbline or other vertical line, and make a short continuous knife
Kiatch on the collar nearest the objectglass, and on the adjoining T. Lift the tele
Kope ont of its Ts, turn it end for end, replace it in its Ts ; again bring the upright
hair vertical, and make on the other T a scratch coinciding with that on the collar.
Then, in levelling or in a4justing, always see that the scratch on the collar coincides
Mitt thai on the ac^oining T when the bubbletube is under the telescope.

liETEIililire BT THE BAROIHETER.
1. Many drcnmstancM combine to render the results of this kind of WTellino^ no*
reliable where great accuracy is required. This fact was most concluslyely proved
by the observations made by Captain T. J. Cram, of the U. 8. Coast Stirvey. See
Beport of U. 3. C. S., toI. for 1864. It is difficult to read oiT from an aneroid (the
kind of barom generally employed for engineering purposes) to within from two to
five or six ft, depending on its size. The moisture or dryness of the air aflTects the
results; also winds, the ricinity of mountains, and the daily atmospheric tides,
which cause incesHant and irregular fluctuations in the barom. A barom hanging
quietly in a room will often vary ^jf of an inch within a few hours, corresponding
to a diff of elev.ition of nearly 100 ft. No formula can posiiibly be deyised that shall
•mbrace these sources of error. The variations dependent upon temperature, latir
tnde, Ac, are in some measure provided for; so that with very ddicate instruments, •
skilful observbr may measure the diff of altitude of two points dose together, such
as the bottom and top of a steeple, with a tolerable confidence that he is within two
or three feet of the truth. But if as short an interval as even a few hours elapses
between his two observations, such changes may occur in the condition of the atmo
sphere that he may make the top of the steeple to be lower than its bottom ; or at
least, cannot feel by any means certain that he is not ten or twenty ft in error; and
this may occur without any perceptible change in the atmosphere. Whenever prac
ticable, therefore, there should be a person at each station, to observe at both points
at the same time. Single observations at points many miles apart, and made on dif
ferent days, and in different states of the atmosphere, are of little value. In such
cases the mean of many observations* extending over several days, weeks, or months,
and made when the air is apparently undisturbeid, will give tolerable approximAtionB
to the truth. In the tropics the rang^ of the atmospheric pres is much leas than
in other regions, seldom exceeding ^ inch at any one spot; also more regular in
time, and, therefore, less productive oferror. Still, the barometer, especially eitiier
the aneroid, or Bourdon^s metallic, may be rendered highly useftil to the civil engi
neer, in cases where great accuracy is not demanded. By hurrying from point tO
point, and especially by repeating, he can form a Judgment as to which of two sum
mits is the lowest. Or a careful observer, keeping some miles ahead of a surveying
party, may materially lessen their labors, especially in a rough country, by select
ing the general route for them in advance. The accounts of the agreement within
a few inches, in the measurements of high mountains, by diff observers, at diff
periods ; and those of ascertaining accurately the grades of a railroad, by means of
an aneroid, while riding in a car, will be believed by those only who are ignonmt
of the subject. Such results can happen only by chance.
When possible, the observations at different places should be taken at the same
time of day, as some check upon the effects of the daily atmospheric tides ; and In
very important cases, a memorandum should be made of the year, month, day, and
hour, as well as of the state of the weather, direction of the wind, latitude of the
place, Ac, to be referred to an expert, if necessary.
The effecto of latitade are not included in any of our formulas. When
reqd they may be found in the table page 814. Several other corrections must be
made when great accuracy is aimed at ; Dut they require extensive tables.
In rapid railroad exploring, however, such refinements may be neglected, Inas
much as no approach to such accuracy is to be expected ; but on the contrary, errors
01 from 1 to 10 or more feet in 100 of he^ht, wul frequently occur.
As a very roa§rli avera^r® ^^ iQ^y assume that the barometer falls J^
inch for every 90 feet that we ascend above the level of the sea, up to 1000 ft. But
in fact its rate of tall decreases continually as we rise ; so that at one mile high it
fiEdls ^ inch for about 106 ft rise. Table 2 shows the true rate.

mie screw at tlie baekof an aneroid Is for adjusting the index by a stand
ard barom. After this has been done it must by no means be meddled with. In
some instruments specially made to order with that intention, this screw may bo
used also for turning the index back, after having risen to an elevation so great that
the index has reached the extreme limit of the graduated arc. After thus turning
it back, the indications of the index at greater heights must be added to that at
tained when it was turned back.

LEVSLLINO BT THE BAROMETEB.
RuLi 2. BelTlUe's short approx rale is the one beit adapted to rapid
Aeld use, namely, add together the two readings of the barom only. Also find the
diir between said two readings; then, as tbe sam of the two readlnffs
is to tbelr dlff, so Is 55000 feet to the reqd altitude.
<3orreetion for latitude is usually omitted where great accuracy is not
required. To apply it, first find the altitude by the rule, as before. Then divide it
by the number in the following table opposite the latitude of the place. (If the two
places are in different latitudes, use their mean.) Add the quotient to the altitude
if the latitude is leea than 45°. Subtract it if the Utitude is more than 45°. No cor
rection required for latitude 45°.

lieTCllins by Barometer; or bjr the bollini^ point.
Rule 3. The following table. No. 2, enables us to measure heights either by means
of boiling water, or by the barom. The third column shows the approximate alti
tude above sealevel corresponding to diif heights, or readings of the barom ; and to
the diif degrees of Fahrenheit's thermom,at which water boils in the open air. Thus
when the barom, under undisturbed conditions of the atmosphere, stands at 24.08
inches, or when pure rain or distilled water boils at the t«mp of 201° Fah ; the place
is about 5764 ft above the level of the sea, as shown by the table. It is therefore
rery easy to find the diffoi altitude of two places. Thus : take out from table No 2,
the altitudes opposite to the two boiling temperatures ; or to the two barom readings.
Subtract the one opposite the lower reading, from that opposite tbe upper reading.
The rem will be the reqd height, as a rough approximation. To correct this, add
together the two therm readings ; and div the sum by 2, for their mean. From teble
for temperature, p 816, take out the number opposite this mean. Mult the ap
proximate height just found, by this tabular number. Then correct for lat if reqd.
Ex. The same as preceding ; namely, barom at lower sta, 26.64 ; and at npper ata,
20.82. Thermom at lower sta, 70° Fnh ; and at the npper one, 40°. What is the diff
of height of the two stations ?
Alt.
Here the tabular altitudes are, for 20.82 9579
and for 26.64 3115
To correct this, we have
70° + 40° 110°
6464 ft, approx height. .
65° mean ; and in table p 816, opp to
55°, we find 1.048. Therefore 6464 X 1.048 = 6774 ft, the reqd height.
This is about 26 ft more than by Rule 1 ; or nearly .4 of a ft In each 100 ft.
At 70° Fah, pure water will boil at 1° less of temp, for an average of about 660 ft
of elevation above sealevel, up to a height of U a mile. At the height of 1 mile, V*
of boiling temp will correspond to about 560 ft of elevation. In table p315 the
mean of the temps at the two stations is assumed to be 32° Fah ; at which no correc
tion for temp is necessary in using the table ; hence the tabular number opposite
32°, in table p 316, is 1.
This diff produced in the temp of the hailing pointy by change of elevation, most
not be confounded with that of the atmotpherej due to the same cause. The air be
comes cooler as we ascend above sealevel, at the rate (very roughly) of about 1^ Fah
for every 200 ft near sealevel, to 350 ft at the height of 1 mile.

If the air is calm, fog or rain does not appreciably affect the retult ; but wisds do.
Very loud sounds appear to travel somewhat faster than low ones. The watchword
of sentinels has been heard across still water, on a calm night, 10^ miles ; and a
cannon 20 miles. Separate sounds, at intsrvals of ^ of a second, cannot be distin
guished, but appear to be connected. The distances at whieh a speaker can be
understood, in front, on one side, and behiud him, are about ab 4, S, and 1.
Dr. Charles M. Cresson informs the writer tliat, by repeated trials, he found that
in a Philadelphia gas main 20 inches diameter and 16000 feet long, laid and covered
in the earth, but empty of gas, and having one horizontal bend of 90^, and of 40 fast
reuUus, the sound of a pistolshot travelled 16000 feet in precisely 16 seconds, or 1000
feet per second. The arrival of the sound was barely audible ; but was rendered
very apparent to the eye by its blowing off a diaphragm of tissuepaper placed over
the end of the main.
Turo bosits anchored some distance apart may serve as a base line for
triangulating objects along the coast; the distance between them being first found
by firing guns on board one of them.
In ivater tliie velocity is about 4708 feet pef second, or about 4 times that
in air. In iwroodsy it is from 10 to 16 times ; and in metalSf fh>m 4 to 10 times
greater than in air, according to some authorities.

AIRATMOSPHERE.
The atmospliere is known to extend to at least 4S miles
abore the earth. It is a mixture of about 79 measures of nitrogen gas and 21
of oxygen gas ; or about 77 nitrogen, 23 oxygen, br weight. It generallr con
tains, however, a trace of water, and of carbonic acid and carbu retted hydrogen
gaaes, and still less ammonia.
Density of air. Under *' normal ** or " standard " conditions (sea level,
lat 45^, barometer 760 mm => 29.922 ins, temperature O^C^ZTP F) dry air
weljirhs 1.292673 kilograms per cubic meter * = 2.17888 fi>s avoir per cubic yard.
For other lats and elevations —

where B = earth's mean radius =» 6,366,198 meters ; A >« eleTation above aea

Under normal conditions, but with 0.04 parts carbonic acid (0 O,) in 100 parts
of air, density = 1.293052 kg per cu m.f » 2.17952 fi» avoir per cu yd.^
The atmospherie pressure, at any given place, may yarr 2 inches or
more from day to day. 'rhe averagr® pressure, at sea level ^ varies from
about 745 to 770 millimeters of mercury according to the latitude and locality.
760 millimeters * is generally accepted as the mean atmospheric pressure, and
called an atmosphere. The '* metrie atmosphere,** taken arbitrarily
at 1 kilogram per square centimeter, is in general use in Continental Europe.
The pressure diminishes as the altitude increases.f Therefore, a pump in a high
region will not lift water to as great a height as in a low one. The pressure of
air, like that of water, is, at any given point, equal in all directions.
It is often stated that the temperature of the atmosphere lowers at
the rate of 1<^ Fah for each 300 feet of ascent above the earth's snrfhees
but this is liable to many exceptions, and varies much with local causes. Actual
observation in balloons seems to show that, up to the first 1000 feet, 1^ in aboat
200 feet is nearer the truth ; at 2000 feet, 1° in 250 feet ; at 4000 feet, 1° in 300 feet;
and, at a mile, 1° in 350 feet.
In breathingr, a grown person at rest requires from 0.25^ to 0.35 of a cubic
foot of air per minute : which, when breathed, vitiates from 8.5 to 5 cubic feet.
When walking, or hard at work, he breathes and vitiates two or three times as
much. About 5 cubic feet of fresh air per person per minute are required for the
perfect ventilation of rooms in winter; 8 in summer. Hospitals M to 80.
Beneath the ipeneral level of the surface of the earth, in temperate
regions, a tolerably uniform temperature of about 50° to 60^ Fah exists at
the depth of about 50 to 60 feet ; and inereases about 1° for each additional 50 to
60 feet ; all subject, however, to considerable deviations owing to many local
causes. In the Rose Bridge Colliery, England, at the depth of 2424 feet, the
temperature of the coal is 93.5° Fah ; and at the bottom of a boring 4169 feet
d eep, near Berlin, the temperature is 119°.
The air is a werjr slow eondnetor of heat; hence hollow walls
serre to retain the heat in dwellings ; besides keeping them dry. It mahea
into a waeunm near sea level with a velocity of about 1157 feet per second ;
or 13.8 miles per minute ; or about as fast as sound ordinarily travels through
quiet air. See Sound. ^
Iiike all other elastie fluids, air expands eoually witik
e^ual increases of temperature. Every increase of o° Fah, expands
the bulk of any of them slightly more than 1 per cent of that which it has at 0^
Fah ; or 500° about doubles its bulk at xero. The bulk of anv of them diminishes
inversely in proportion to the total pressure to which it is subjected.
This holds good with air at least up to pressures of about 750 fte per sqnare
inch, or 50 times its natural pressure ; the air in this case occupying oneflxtietii
of its natural bulk. In like manner the bulk will increase as the total preasuiv
is diminished. Substances which follow these laws, are said to be perCeetiy

elAstle. Under apressure of about 6^ tons persqiiaie Indi, air would become
as dense as wa^er. Since the air at the surface of the earth is pressed 14^ !ba per
square inch by the.atmosphere above it, and since this is equal to the we^ht of a
oolumn of water 1 inch square and 34 feet high, it follows that at the depths of
84, 68, 102 feet, &4i, below water, air will be compressed into ^, 3^, 3^ Ac,
01 its bulk at the surface.
In a divliiKbell, men, after some experience, can readily work for seyeral
hours at a depth of 51 feet, or under a pressure of 2^ atmospheres ; or 37^ ftis
Kir square inch. But at 90 feet deep, or under 3.64 atmospheres, or nearly 55
8 per square inch, they can work for but about an hour, without serious suffer^
ing from paralvsis. or even danger of death. Still, at the St Louis bridge, work
was done at a deptn of 1103>^ feet ; pressure 63.7 9>8 per square inch.
The dew point is that temp (varying) at which the air deposits its vapor.
Tlie gnreatest beat of tlie air in the sun probably never exeeeds
145° Fah J nor the greatest cold — 74P at u ight. About 130° above, and 40° below
zero, are the extremes in the U. S. east of the Mississippi ; and 65^ below in the
N. W.; all at common ground level. It is stated, however, that —81° has been
observed in N. E. Siberia: and +10lo Fah in the shade in Paris; and +153° in
the sun at Greenwich Observatory, both in July, 1881. It has frequently ex
'beaded il(XP Fah in the shade in Philadelphia during recent years.
WIND.
The relation between the weloeity of wind, and its preas*
lire against an obstacle placed either at right angles to its course, or inclined
to it, has not been well determined ; and still less so its pressure against curved
surfaces. The pressure against a laige surface is probably proportionally greater
than gainst a small one. It is generally supposed to vary nearly as the squares
of the velocities; and when the obstacle is at right angles to its direction, the
Sressure in lbs per square foot of exposed surface is considered to be equal to
lie square jof the velocity in miles per hour, divided by 200. On this basis,
which is probably quite aefective, the following table, as given by Smeaton, is
prepared.

Maxima and minima deduced fh>m observations covering only 4 or 5 years are
apt to be misleading. Data covering even 10 or more years may just miss includ

At Philadelphia, in 1869, during which occurred the greatest drought known
there for at least 50 years, 43.21 inches fell ; August 13, 1873, 7.3 inches in 1 day ;
August, 1867, 15.8 inches in 1 month ; July, 1842, 6 inches in 2 hours ; 9 inches
per month not more than 7 or 8 times in 25 years. From 1825 to 1893, greatest
in one year, 61 inches, in 1867 \ least, 30 inches, in 1826 and 1880. At Norristown,
Pennsylvania, in 1865, the writer ^aw evidence that at least 9 inches fell within
5 hours. At Genoa, Italy, on one occasion, 32 inches fell in 24 hours ; at Geneva,
Switzerland, 6 inches in 3 hours ; at Marseilles, France, 13 inches in 14 hoars;
in Chicago, Sept., 1878, .97 inch in 7 minutes.
Near iJondon, Eng^land, the mean total fall for many years is 28 inches.
On one occasion, 6 inches fell in 1% hours! In the mountain districts of the
English lakes, the fall is enormous: reaching in some years to 180 or 240 inches;
or from 15 to 20 feet ! while, in tne adjacent neighborhood, it is but 40 to 00
inches. At Liverpool, the average is 34 inches ; at Ckiinburgh, 30 : Glasgow, 22;
Ireland, 36; Madras, 47; Calcutta, 60; maximum for 16 years, 82; Delhi, Si;

KieB, howerer, sometimeB reyerae this : and also oanse great differences in the
amounts in places quite near each other ; as in the English lake districts Just
alluded to. It is sometimes difficult to account for these variations. In some
lagoons in New Granada, South. America, the writer has known three or four
heavy raiiio to occur weekly for some months, during which not a drop fell on
hills about 1000 feet high, within ten miles' distance, and within full sight. At
another locality, almost a deadlevel plain, fully threequarters of the rains that
fell for two years, at a spot two miles from his residence, occurred in the morn
ing ; while those which fell about three miles from it, in an opposite direction,
were in the afternoon.
Tlie relation between precipitation and stream»0ow is greatly
ai^cted by the existence of forests or crops, by the slope and character of ground
on the watershed, especially as to rate of absorption, by the season of the year,
the frost in the ground, etc. The streamflow may ordinarily be taken as vary*
ing between 0.2 and 0.8 of the rainfall. Streams in limestone regions frequently
loee a very large proportion of their flow through subterranean caverns.
Aasnminff a fall of 2 feet in 1 year (=3 76,379 cubic feet per square mile per
day), that half the rainfall is available for water supply, and that a per capita
consumption of 4 cubic feet (^t 30 gallons) per day is sufficient, one square mile
will supply 19,095 persons ; or a square of 88.26 feet on a side will supply one
person.

The most destructive rains are usualhr those which fall upon snow, nnder

The welirbt of firesbly flallen snow, as measured by the author,
varies from aoont 5 to 12 lbs per cubic foot ; apparently depending chiefly upon
the degree of humidity of the air through whicn it had passed. On one occasion,
when minsled snow and hail had fallen to the depth of 6 inches, he found its
weight to Be 81 fbs per cubic foot. It was very dry and incoherent. A cubic foot
of heavy snow mav, by a gentle sprinkling of water, be converted into abont
half a cubic foot of slush, weighing 20 9>s.; which will not slide or mn oflf
from a shingled roof sloping 30^, if the weather is cold. A cubic block of snow
•atorated with water until it weighed 45 Tba per cubic foot, Just slid on a rough
board inclined at 45''; on a smoothly planed one at 30^ ; and on slate at 18° : all
ipproximate. A prism of snow, saturated to 62 lbs per cubic foot, one inch
square, and 4 inches high, bore a weif^t of 7 fi»s ; which at first compressed
it abont onequarter part of its length. European engineers consider 6 n>s per
square foot of roof to oe snffielent allowance for the weight of snow;
324 RAIN AND 6NOW.
and 8 lbs for the pressare of wind ; total. 14 lbs. The writer thinks that in the
U. S. the allowance for snow should not be taken at leu than 12 fi>8 ; or the total
for snow and wind, at 20 Bm. There is no danger that snow on a roof will
become saturated to the extent Just alluded to ; because a rain that would supply
the necessary q^uantity of water would also by its violence wash away the snow ;
but we entertain no doubt whatever that the united pressures from snow and
wind, in our Northern States, do actually at times reach, and even surpass.
20 fbs per square foot of root The limit of
perpetnal snow at the equator is at the height of about 16000 feet, or say
3 miles above sealevel; in lat 45° north or south, It is libout half that neight;
while near the poles it is about at searleveL
Rain Oaoi^es. Plain cylindrical vessels are ill adapted to service as rain
gauges ; because moderate rains, even though sufficient to yield a large runoff
from a moderate area, are not of sufficient depth to be satisfactorily measured
unless the depth be exaggerated. The inaccuracy of measurement, always con
siderable, is too great relatively to the depth.
In its simplest and most usual form, the gauge (see Fig.) consists essentially
of a funnel. A, which receives the rain and leads it into a measuring
tube, B, of smaller crosssection. The funnel should have a verticci
and fairly sharp edge, and, in order to minimize the loss through xA/
evaporation, it should fit closely over the tube, and its lower end ^
diould be of small diameter. '
The depth of water in the tube is ascertained by inserting, to the
bottom of the tube, a measuring stick of some unpolished wood
which will readily show to what aepth it has been wet. The stick
may be permanently graduated, or it may be compared with an ordi
nary scale at each observation. The tube is usually of such diameter
that the area of its crosssection, minus that of the btick, is onetenth
of the area of the funnel month. The depth of rainiaU is then one
tenth of the depth as measured by the stick.

Such gauges, with the tubes carefully made from seamless drawn brass tubing,
«08t about $5.00 each ; but an intelligent and careftil tinsmith, given the dimen
sions accurately, can construct, of galvanized iron, for about ^.00 a gauge that
will answer every purpose of the engineer.
Tbe exposure has a very marked effect upon the results obtained. The
funnel should be elevated about 3 ft, in order to prevent rain from splashing back
into it from the ground or roof. If on a roof, the latter shoald be nat, and pref
erably 50 ft wide or wider, and the gause should be placed as far as possible
from tbe edges ■ else the air currents, produced by the wind striking the side of
the building, will carry some of the rain over the gauge. No objects much higher
than the gauge should be near it, as they produce variable air currents which
•may seriously affect its indications.
An overflow tank, G, should be provided, for cases of overfilling the tube.
Water, freezing in the gauge, may burst it, or force the bottom off, or at least
<ao deform the gauge as to destroy its accuracy.
To measure snow, the funnel is removed, and the snow is collected in
the overflow attachment or other cylindrical vessel deep enough to prevent the
snow from being blown out, and the crosssectional area of which is accurately
known. The snow is then melted, either by allowing it to stand in a warm
place, or, with less loss through evaporation, by adding an accurately known
quantity of lukewarm water. In the latter case, the volume of the added water
must of course be deducted from tbe measurement.
Rainfall equivalent of snow. Ten inches of snow are usually taken
as equivalent to 1 in of rain ; but, according to various authorities, the equiva
lent may vary between 2>^ and 34; i. e., between 25 and 1.84 &». per cubic foot.
Selfreeordinir g^ngr^s, of which several forms are on the market, are
Jiuite expensive, and, even when purchased from regular makers, seldom per
ectly reliable. Gauges using a small tipping bucket register inaccurately la
heavy rains ; those using a float are limitea as to the total depth which they c
xegister ; while those which weigh,tbe rain, if exposed, are aflbcted by wind.

WATER.
Pure water, as boiled and distilled, Is eomposed of the tiro gases, hydro
gen and oxygen ; in the proportions of 2 measures hydrogen to 1 of oxygen ;
or 1 weight of hydrogen to 8 of oxvgen. Ordinarily, however, it contains sev
erid foreign ingredients, as carbonic and other acids ; and soluble mineral, or
organic substances. When it contains mirch lime, it is said to be h€a^; and will
not make a good lather with soap. Tbe air in its ordinary state conlwiiis
about 4 grains of water per cubic foot.
The average pressure of tlie air at sea level, will balamee a
colamn of water 34 feet high ; or about 30 inches of mercury. At its boil
ing point of 212° Fah, its bulk is about one twentythird greater than at IQP.
Its welg^lit per cubic foot is taken at 62^ fi>fl,or 1000 ounces avoir; but 62}^
lbs would be nearer the truth, as per table beh>w. It is about 816 times hearier
than air, when both are at the temperature of 62°; and the barometer at 80
inches. With barometer at 30 inches the weight of perfectlv pure water is as
follows. At about 39*^ it has its maximum density of 62.425 ros per cubic foot.

Water has its maxlmnm density when its temperature is a littler above
89° Fah ; or about 7^ above the freezing point. By best authorities 39.2°. From
about 39° it expands either by cold, or by heat. When the temperature of 320
reduces it to ice, its weight is but about 57.2 lbs. per cubic foot ; and its specific
gravity about .9176, according to the investigations of L. Dufour. Hence, as
ice, it has expanded one twelfth of its original bulk as water; and the sadcleii
expansive force exerted at the moment of freezing, is sufficiently great to
split iron waterpipes; being probably not less than 30000 lbs per square inch.
Instances have occurred of its splitting cast tubular posts of iron bridges, and
of ordinary buildings, when full of rain water Arom exposure. It also loosens
and throws down masses of rock, through the Joints or which rain or spring
water has found its way. Retaining walls also are sometimes overthrown, or
at least bulged, by the freezing of water which has settled between their backs
and the earth filling which they sustain ; and walls which are not founded at a
sufficient depth, are often lifted upward by the same process.
It is said that in a irlass tube ^ Incli in diameter, water will not
freeze until the temperature is reduced to 23°; and in tubes of less than^
inch, to 3° or 4°. Neither will it freeze until considerably colder than 32° in
rapid running streams. Ancbor lee, sometimes found at depths as great as
26 feet, consists of an aggregation of small crystals or needles of ice frosen s*
the surface of rapid open water ; and probably carried below by the fbroe of ths
stream. It does not form under frozen water.
Since ice floats in waters and a floatinff body displaces a weight of the
liquid equal to its own weight, it follows that a cubic foot of floating ice weighing
57.2 lbs, must displace 57.2 fSs of water. But 67.2 lbs of water, one foot square, is 11
inches deep: therefore, floating ice of a cubical or paralleloplpedal shape, will
have \^ of its volume under water; and only ^ above: and a square foot of ice
of any thickness, will require a weiffht equal to ^ of its own weight to sink it
to the surface of the water. In practice, however, this must be regarded merely
as a close approxima}iion, since the weight of ice is somewhat iSfocted by en
closed airbubbles.
Pure water is usually assumed to boll at 212° Fah In the open air, at the
level of the sea ; the barometer being at SO inches ; and at about 1^ less for every
620 feet above sea level, for heights within 1 mile. In fsct, its boiling point
Varies like its freezing point, with its purity, the density of the air, the material
4>f the vessel, dbc. In a metallio vessel, it may boil at 210°; and in a glass one,
at from 212° to 220°; and it is stated that if all air be previously extracted, it
requires 275°.
It evaporates at all temperatures; dissolves more substances than any
other agent : and has a greater capacity for heat than any other known substanosi
It is eomjpressfHl at the rate of about one21740th. (or about ^^ of an

WATER. .327
Effeet on metals. The lime contained in many waters, forms deposits In
metallic waterpipes^ and in channels of earthenware, or of masonry ; especially
if the current oe slow. Some other substances do the same ; obstructing the
flow of the water to such an extent, that it is always expedient to use pipes of
diameters larger than would otherwise be necessary. The lime also forms very
hard inemstatioiis at tbe bottoms of boilers^ very much impair
ing their efficiency ; and rendering them more liable to burst. Such water is
unfit for locomotives. We have seen it stated that the Southwestern B R Ck>,
England, prevent this lime deposit, along their limestone sections, by dissolving
1 ounce of salammoniac to 90 gallons of water. The salt of sea water forms
similar deposits in boilers; as uso does mud, and other impurities.
Water, either when very pure, as rain water; or when it contains carbonic
acid, (as most water does,) produees carbonate of lead in lead
pip^ ; and as this is an active poison, such pipes should not be used for such
waters. Tinned lead pipes may be substituted for them. If, however, sulphate
of lime also be present, as is very frequently the case, this effect is not always
produced; and several other substances usually found in spring and river
water, also diminish it to a greater or less degree. Fresh uraier corrodes
vrronslit Iron more rapidly tban cast; but the reverse appears to
be the case with sea water; although it also affects wrought iron very
quickly ; so that thick flakes may be detached from it with case. The corrosion
of iron or steel by sea water increases with the carbon. Castiron cannons
from a vessel which had been sunk in the fresh water of the Delaware River
for more than 40 years, were perfectly free from rust. Gen. Pasley, who had
examined the metals found in the ships Royal George, and Edgar, the first of
which had remained sunk in the sea for 62 years, and the last for 133 years,
"stated that the cast iron had generally become quite soft; and in some cases
resembled plumbago. Some of the shot when exposed to the air became hot;
and burst into many pieces. The wrought iron was not so much injured,
except when in eantaet vkth copper, or brcus gun^metal. Neither of these last was
much affected, except when in contact with iron. Some of the wrought iron
was reworked by a blacksmith, and pronounced superior to modern iron." **Mr.
Cottam stated that some of the guns had been carefully removed in their soft
state, to the Tower of London : and in time (within 4 years) returned their orig^
inal hardneu. Brass cannons rrom the Mary Rose, which had been sunk in the
sea for 292 years, were considerably honevcombed in spots only ; (perhaps where
iron had been in contact with them.) The old cannons, of wroughtiron bars
hooped together, were corroded about }^ inch deep; but had probskoly been pro
tected bv mud. The castiron shot became redhot on exposure to the air; and
fell to pieces like dry clay I"
** Unprotected parts of castiron sluicevalves, on the sea gates of the Cale
donian canal, were converted into a soft plumbaginous substance, to a depth
of % of an inch, within 4 years; but where they had been coated with common
Swedish tar, they were entirely uninjured. This softening effect on cast iron
appears to be as rapid even when the water is but slightly orackish ; and that
only at intervals, it also takes place on cast iron imbedded in salt earth. Some
water pipes thus laid near the Liverpool docks, at the expiration of 20 years
were soft enough to be cut by a knife ; while the same kind, on higher ground
beyond the influence of the sea water, were as good as new at tne end of 60 years."
Observation has, however, shown that the rapidity of this action
depends ntncn on the quality of the Iron ; that which is dark
colored, and contains much carbon mechanically combined with it, corrodes
most rapidly : while hard white, or lightgray castings remain secure for a long
time. Some castiron seapiles of this character, showed no deterioration in 40
years.
Contact wltli brass or copper is said to induce a galvanic action
which greatly hastens decay in either fresh or salt water. Some muskets were
recovered from a wreck which had been submerged in sea water for 70 years
near New York. The brass parts were in perfect condition ; but the iron parts
had entirely disappeared. Galwanlstng: (coating with zinc) acts as a pre*
serrative to the iron, but at the expense of the sine, which soon disappears.
The iren then corrodes. If iron be well heated, and then coated with toot
coaltar, it will resist the action of either salt or freshwater for many years.
It is very important that the tar be perfectly purified. Sucji a coat«
ing, or one of paint, will not prevent barnacles and other shells from
attaching themselves to the iron. Asphaltum, if pure, answers as well aa
4M>a]>tar.
Copper and bronse are very little affected by sea water.
Ko galvanic action has. been detected where bnun leroles are inserted intt
the waterpipea in Philadelphia.
328 TIDES.
Tbe most prejudicial exposure for Iron, as well as for wood, is
that to alternate wet and dry. At some dangerous spots In Long Island Sound,
it has heen the practice to drive round bars of rolled iron about 4 inches diam
eter, for supporting signals. These wear away most rapidly between high and
low water; at the rate of about an inch in depth in 20 years ; in which time the
4inch bar becomes reduced to a 2inch one, along that portion of it. Under
frenh water especially, or under ground, a thin coating of coalpitch vamishi
carefully applied, will protect iron, such as waterpipes, Ac, for a long time.
See page 655. *The sulphuric acid contained in the water from coal minei
corrodes iron pipes rapidly. In tbe ft'esli water of canals, iron boata
have continued In service from 20 to 40 years. Wood remains sound for
centuries under either fresh or salt water, if not exposed to be worn away by
the action of currents : or to be destroyea by marine insects.
fitea urater welgrns from 64 to 64.27 ft>s per cubic foot, or say from 1.6 to
1.9 ft)s per cubic foot more than fresh water, varying with the locality, and not
appreciably with the depth. Theexcess, over the weight of fresh water, is chiefly
common salt. At 64 lbs per cubic foot, 35 cubic feet weigh 2240 fi>s. Sea water
freezes at about 27° Fahr. The ice is fresh ; but (especially at low tempera
tures) brine may be entrapped In the ice.
A teaspoonful of powdered alum, well stirred into a bucket of dirty w^ater,
will generally purify it sufficiently within a few hours to be drinkable. If «
hole 3 or 4 feet deep be dug in the sand of the seashore, the infiltrating watei
will usually be sumciently fresh for washing with soap; or even for drinking.
It is also stated that water may be preserved sweet for many years by placing
in the containing vessel 1 ounce of black oxide of manganese for each gallon
of water.
It is said that water kept in zinc tanks ; or flowing through iron
tubes galvanized inside, rapidly becomes poisoned by soluble salts of zinc
formed thereby; and it is recommended to coat zinc surfaces with asphalt
varnish to prevent this. Yet, in the city of Hartford, Conn, service pipes of
iron, galvanized inside and out, were adopted in 1855, at the recommendation
of the water commissioners ; and have been in use ever since. They are like
wise used in Philadelphia and other cities to a considerable extent. In many
hotels and other builaings in Boston, the *' Seamless Drawn Brass Tube" of the
American Tube Works at Boston, has for many years been in use for service
Eipe ; and has given great satisfaction. It is stated that the softest water may
e kept in brass vessels for years without any deleterious result.
Tlie action of lead upon some waters (even pure ones) is highlr poison
ous. The subject, however, is a complicated one. An injurious ingredient may
be attended by another which neutralizes its action. Organic matter, whether
vegetable or animal, is injurious. Carbonic acid, when not in excess, is harm
less.
Ice may be so impure that its water is dangerous to drink.
Tke popular notion tbat hot water freezes more qniclLljr
than cold, with air at the same temperature, is erroneous.
TIDES. .
The tides are those wellknown rises and falls of the surface of the sea
and of some rivers, caused by the attraction of the sun and moon. There are
two rises, floods, or high tides ; and two falls, ebbs, or low tides, every 24 hoars
and 50 minutes (a lunar day) ; making the average of S hours 12^^ minutes
between high and low water. These intervals are, however, subject to
fpreat variations; as are also the heights of the tides; and this not only
at different places, but at the same place. These irregularities are owing to the
shape of the coast line, the depth of water, winds, ana other causes. ImuMy at
new and full moon, or rather a day or two after, (or twice in each lunar month,
at intervals of two weeks,) the tiaes rise higher, and fall lower than at other
times; and these are called spring tides. Also, one or two days after the
moon is iu her quarters^ twice in a lunar month, they both rise and fall less than
at other times ; and are then called neap tides. From neap to spring they
rise and fall more daily ; and vice versa. The time of hifrii water at any
place, is generally two or three hours after the moon has passed over either
the upper or lower meridian ; and is called the establishment of that
place; because, when this time is established, the time of high water on any
other day may be found from it in most cases. The total height of spring tides
is generally from 1}^ to 2 times as great as that of neaps. The great ii<t*I
wave is merely an undulation, unattended by any current, or progressive motion
of the particles of water. Each successive hijgh tide occurs STOUt 24 mlnatei
later than the preceding one ; anil so with the Um tides
EVAPOBATIOK AND LEAKAGE. 329
EVAPOEATION, F UTBATIO N, AND LEAKAGE.
Tbe amount of evaporation from surfaces of water exposed to
tlM natural effect* of the open air, is of cooree greater in aammer than in winter ; althoagh It is quite
perceptible in even, the coldest weather. It is greater in ahalloir water than in deep, inasmuch aa th*
bottom also beoomes heated by the sun. It is greater in running, than in standing water ; on much
the same principle that it is greater daring winds than calms. It is probable that the average dailj
loss from ^ reservoir of moderate depth, m>m evaporation alone, throughout the 3 warmer months
of the year, (June, Jniy, Aagust,) rarely exceeds about ^ inch, in any part of the United States. Or
JL inch daring the 9 colder months ; except in the Soathem States. These two averages would give
adaily one of .16 inch ; or a total annual loss of $6 ins, or 4 ft 7 ins. It probably is S.5 to 4 ft.
By some trials by the writer. In the tropics, ponds of pure water
8 ft deep, in a stiff retentive day, and ftally exposed to a very hot san all day, lost during the dry sea
son, preoijiely 2 ins in 16 days ; or H ^^oh per day ; while the evaporation from a glass tumbler was
V inch per day. The air in that region is highly charged with moisture ; and the dews are heavy.
Every day during the trial the thermometer reached ftt>m 115° to 126° in the sun.
The total annual evaporation in several parts of England and Scotland is stated to average fhmi 22
to 38 ins ; at Paris, 84; Boston, Mass, 32 ; many places in the U. 8.,' SO to 36 ins. This last would give
a dailj average of aA^ ineh for the whole year. Such statements, ho.wever, are of very little value,
nnless accompanied by memoranda of the circumstances of the case ; such as the depth, exposure,
sixe and nature of the vessel, pond. Ac, which contains the water, Ac. Sometimes the total annua)
evaporation from a district of country exceeds the rain fall ; and vice versa.
On canals, reservoirs, Ac, it is usual to combine the lofis bj eyaporation*
with that by filtration. The last is that which soaks into the earth ; and of which some portion
passes entirely through the banks, (when in embankt;) and if in very small quantity, may be dried
up by the son and air as fast as it reaches the outside ; so as not to exhibit itself as water ; but if is
greater quantity, it becomes apparent, as leakage.
E. H. Gill, € E, stat^ the average evaporation and filtra
tion on tlie Sandy and Beaver canal, Oliio, (38 ft wide at ^ater snr
Cmo; 26 ft at bottom ; and 4 ft deep.) to be but IS cub ft per mile per minute, in a dry secuon. Here
the exposed water surf in one mile is 200640 sq ft; and in order, with this surf, to lose 13 cub ft per
mln, or 18720 cub ft per day of 34 hours, the quantity lost must be innjWV ~ '^'^^ f^> — ^H loch fa
depth per day. Moreover, one mile of the canal contains 675840 cab ft ; therefore, the number of days
teqd for the combined evaporation and filtration to amount to as mach as all the water in the canal, is
^I^ ^J^ = 36 days. Observations in warm weather on. a 22'mile reaeh of the Chenango canal, N
18720
York, (40; 28 ; and 4 ft,) gave 9SH cub ft per mile per min ; or 6 times as much aa in the preceding
ease. This rate would empty the canal in about 8 days. Besides this there was an excessive leakage
at the gates of a look, (of only bH ft lift,) of 479 cub ft per min, 22 cub ft per mile per min ; and at
aqnedneta, and wasteweirs, others amounting to 19 cub ft per mileper min. The leakage at other
locks with lifts of 8 ft, or. less, did not excMa about 350 cub ft per min, at each. On other canals, it
has been found to be fhom 60, to 500 ft per min. On the Chesapeake and Ohio canal, (where 60, 82,
and 6 ft.) Mr. Fisk, C E, estimated the loss by evap and filtration in 2 weeks of warm weather, to be
Moai 10 all the water in the canal. Professor Baublue assumes 2 Ins per
day, for leafcaffe of canal bed, and evaporation, on Eni^llsb
canals* i. B. Jervls, B, estimated the loss trom evap, filtration, and leakage through lock'
gates, on the original Erie canal, (40, 28, and 4 ft.) at 100 eub ft per mile per min; or 144000 cub It
per day. The water surf in a mile Is 211200 sq ft ; therefore, the daily loss would be equal to a dsjpth of
<Hi tbe Belaware division of tbe Pennsylvania canals, when
the sapply is temporarily shut off f^m any long reach, tbe water falls from 4 to 8 ins per day. The
filtration will of course be muoh greater on embankta, than in eota. In some of our canals, the depth
at high embankta beoomes quite considerable ; the earth, from motives of economy, not being filled in
level under the bottom of the canal ; but merely left to form its own natural slopes. At one spot at
least, on tbe Ches and Ohio canal, where one side Is a natural face of vertical rock, this depth is 46
ft. Sooh depths increase the leakage very greatly ; especially when, as is frequently the case, the em
baakta are not paddled; and the practice Is not to be commended, for other reasons also.
Tbe total averaire loss from reservoli^ of moderate deptbs.
In ease tbe earthen dams be constmeted with proper oare, and well settled bv time, will not exoeed
ahont f^om ^ to 1 inch per day ; Imt in new ones, it will usually be oonsiderabiy greater.
Tbe loss flrom dltcbes, or cbannels of small area, is much
greater than that from navigable canals ; so that long canal feeders usually deliver but a small pre*
psrtion of the water which enters them at their heads.
330 FORGE IN RIGID BODIES.
MECHANICS. FORCE IN BIQID BODIES.
In the following pages we endeavor to make clear a few elementary prinoiples
of Mechanics. The opening articles are devoted chiefly to the subject of matter m
motion; for, while an acquaintance with this is perhaps not absolutely required in
obtaining a loorking Itnowledge of those principles of Statics which enter so largely
into the computations of the civil engineer, yet it must be an Important aid to their
intelligent appreciation.
Art. 1 (a). Meolianlcs may b« dellned as that branch of science which
treats of the effects of force upon matter.
This broad definition of the word *' Mechanics" includes hvdroetatics, hydraulics,
pneumatics, etc., if not also electricity, optics, acoustics, and indeed all branches of
physics ; but we f^hall here confine ourselves chiefly to the consideration of the action
of extraneous forces upon bodies supposed to be rigid, or incapable of change of shape.
S) Mechanics is divided into two branches, namely :
Inematlos $ or the study of the moliona of bodies, without reference to the
causei of motion ; and
Dynamlesy or the study of force and its efiiects.
The latter is sobdivided into
Kinetics; which treats of the relations between force and motion; and
Statics t which considers those special, but very numerous, cases, where etpui
and opporite forces counteract each other and thus destroy each other's motions.
Art. $8 (a). Matter, or substaitoey may be defined as whatever occupies spao^
as metal, stone, wood, water, air, steam, gas, etc.
(b) A iMKly is any portion of matter which is either more or less completely
separated in fact from all other matter, or which we take into consideration by itself
and as if it were so separated. Thus, a stone is a body, whethsr it be falling thronngh
the air or lying detached upon the ground, or built up into a wall. Alao^ the wall is
a body ; or, if we wish, we may consider any portion of the wall, as any particulsr
cubic foot or inch in it, as a body. The earth and the other planets are bodies, and
their smallest atoms are bodies.
A train of cars may be regarded as a body; as may also each car, each wheel or
axle or other part of the car, each passenger, etc., etc
Similarly, the ocean is a body, or we may take as a body any portion of it at plsss
nre, such as a cubic foot, a certain bay, a drop, etc.
(c) But in what follows we shall (as already stated) consider chiefly rigid bodies:
i. «., bodies which undergo no change in shape^ such as by being crushed or str^chea
or pulled apart, or penetrated by another body. AH actual bodies are of course more
or less subject to some such changes of shape ; t. «., no body i* in fact absolutely
rigid; but we may properly, for convenience, suppose such bodies to exist, because
many bodies are so nearly rigid that under ordinary circumstances they undergo
little or no change of shape, and because such change as does occur may be con
sidered under the distinct head of Strength of Materials.
(d) But while bodies are thns to be regarded as incapable of change at form, it Is
squally important that we regard them as smeeplihle to change of p^ititm as wholm.
Thus, they may be upset or turned around horizontally or in any other direction, or
moved along in any straight or curved line, with or without turning around a point
within themselves. In short they are capable of moHon, as wholes.
FORCE IN RIGID BODIES. 331
A.ictm 3 (a). Motion of a body is change of its poeitton fn relation to another
body or to some real or imaginary point, which (for conyenieiice) we regard as fixed,
or at rest. Thns, while a stone &11b from a roof to the ground, its position, relatively
to the roof, is constantly changing, as is also that relatively to the ground and that
relatively to any given point in the wall ; and we say that the stone is in motion relor
tively to either of tkote bodies, or to any point in them. But if two stones, A and B,
flail from the roof at the same instant and reach the jironnd at the same (subsequent)
instant, we say that although each moves, relatively to roof and ground, yet they
have no fi^otum rebxtivdy to each other; or, they are at rest relatively 1o each other;
for their position in regard to each other does not change ; i. e., in whatever direction
and at whatever distance stone A may be from stone B at the time of starting, it
remains in that same direction, and at that same distance from B during the whole
time of the fall. Similarly, the roof, the wall and the ground are at rest relatively
to each other, yet they are in motion relatively to a falling stone. They are also in
motion relatively to the sun, owing to the earth's daily rotation about its axis, and
iti annual movement around the sun.
(b) If a trainman walks toward the rear along the top of a freight train Just as
flwt as the train moves forward, he is in motion relatively to the train; but, as a
whole, be is at real relatively to ImUdingSf etc. near by ; for a spectator, standing at
a little distance from the track, sees him continually opposite the same part of such
building, etc. If the man on the train now stops walking, he comes to rest relatively
to the irotn, but at the same time comes into motion relatively to the surrounding
bnHdinffSt etc., for the spectator sees him begin to move along with the train.
(c) Since we know of no absolutely fixed point in space, we cannot say, of any
body, what its absoltUe motion is. Consequently, we do not know of such a thing as
absolute re«^ and are si^e in saying that all bodies are in motion.
Art* 4 (u). The ▼eloetty of a moving body is its rate of motion. A body (as a
railroad train) is said to move with uniform velocttFy or constant velooit^y
when the distancee moved over in equal times are equal to each other^ no matter how
tmall those times may be taken.
(b) The velocity la cxprcsacd by stating the dittance passed over during some
giv0n feme, or which tBovid be passed over during that time if the uniform motion
continued so long Thus, if a railroad train, moving with constant velocity, passes
over 10 miles in half an hour, we may say that its velocity, during that time, is
(». «., that it moves at (he rate of) 20 miles per hour, or 105,600 feet per hour, or 1780
feet per minute, or 2Si^ feet per second. Or, we may, if desirable, say that it moves
at the rate of 10 miles in half an hour, or 8R feet in three seconds, etc. ; but it is
generally more convenient to Htate the distance passed over in a unit of time, as in
one day. one hour, one second, etc.
(c) I^ of two trains, A and B. moving ^ith constant velocity,
A moves 10 miles in half an hour,
B moves 10 miles in quarter of an hour,
then the veloeitieB are,
A, SX) miles per hour,
B, 40 miles per hour.
In other words, the velocity of a body (which may be defined as the distance passed
over in a given time) is inversely as the time required to pafis over a given distance.
(d) By nnlt velocity is meant that velocity whieh, by common consent, is taken
as equal to unity or one. Where English measures are used, the unit velocity gen
erally adopted in the study of Mechanics is 1 foot per second.
(e) When we say that a body has a velocity of 20 miles per hour, or 10 feet per
second, etc.. we do not imply that it will necessarily travel 20 miles, or 10 feet, etc. ;
for it may nc^ have snfBcient time for tbat. We mean merely that it is traveling at
the rate of 20 miles per hour, or 10 feet per second, etc. ; so that if it coniimied to move
at that same rate for an hour, or a second, etc., it would travel 20 miles, or 10 feet. etc.
(t) When velocity inereaget. it is said to be accelerated. When it decreases.
It is said to be retarded. If the acceleration or retardation is in exact proportion
to the time ; that is, when during any and every equal interval of time, the same degree
of change takes place, it is uniformly accelerated, or retarded. When otherwise, the
words vcuriahle and variaMy are used.
(s) A body may have, at the same time, tivro qr more Independent veloel
requlring to be considered. For instance, a ball fired vertically upward from a
J
332 FOBOE IK RIGID BODIES.
Sn, and then falling again to the earth, has, daring the whole time of its rise and
1, (iBt) the tmiform vptoard Telocity with which it leaves the muzzle, and (2nd) the
continually acceUrated dovmward Telocity given to it by gravity, which acts upon it
daring the whole time. Its remUant (or apparent) velocity at any moment is the
d^ertnoe between these two.
Thus, immediately after learlng the gun, the downward velocity given by
gravity is very small, and the resultant velocity is therrfore npwanl and Teiy
nearly equal to the whole upward velocity due to the powder. But after awhila
the downward velocity (by constantly increasing) beoomes equal to the upward
velocity ; i. «., their difference, or the resultant velocity, becomes nothing ; the ball
at that instant stands still ; but its downward velocity continues to increase, and
immediately becomes a little greater than the upward velocity ; then greater and
greater, until the ball strikes the ground. At that instant its resultant velocity is
rthe downward Telocity which it would ) , ( the uniform upward
*» •€ have acquired by falling dwring the V — < velocity given by the
(, vahoU tivM of its rite and faU. ) ( powder.
We have here neglected the resistance of the air, which of course retards botb
flie ascent and the descent of the ball.
(li) As a further illustration, regard a b n c as a raft drifting in the direction
ca ox nh. A man on the rait walks with uniform velocity from comer n ta
corner c while the raft drifts (with a uniform velocity a
little greater than that of the man) through the distance n b. /^a\
Therefore, when the man reaches corner c, that comer has v'H^vVs^
moved to the point which, when he started, was occupied by xTff"^^
a. The man's resultant motion, relatively to the bed of the / ; /
river or to a point on shore, has therefore been » a. His / j. /
motion at right angles to n a, due to his walking, is t c, but ^<" — fi /
that due to the drifting of the raft is o 6. These two are ***.i'''*
equal and opposite. Hence his resultant motion <U right il
angles to n a is nothing ; he does not move from the line n a.
His walking moves him through a distance equal to n i, in the direction n a;
and the drifting through a distance equal to t a, and the sum of these two is n a.
(i) All the motions which we see given to bodies are but €hang«a in their unknown
absolute motions. For convenience, we may conflne our attention to some one or
more of these changes, neglecting others.
Thus, in the case of the ball fired upward from a gun (see. (9) above) we may
neglect Its uniform upward motion and consider only its constantly accelerated
downward motion under the action of gravity ; or, as is more usual, we may oonaldar
only the retuUard or appatrmi motion, which is first upward and then downvrard. In
both cases we neglect the motions of the ball caused by the several motions of
the earth in spaed.
Art. 5 (•)• Forcoy <be «Miiu« of change of motion. Suppose •
perfectly smooth ball resting upon a perfectly hard, frictionless and level surfiMS^
and suppose the resistance of the air to be removed. In erder to merely move the
ball horizontally (i. e., to set it in motion — ^to change its state of motion) some /orc«
must act upon it. Or, if such a ball were already in motion, we could not retard
or hasten it, or turn it from its path without exerting force upon it. For, as stated
in Neiirton's flrat \wkv¥ of motion, ''•rerjr body continues In its
•tstte of rest or of motion in a straight line, except in so far as it may be com
pelled by impressed forces to change that state." On the other hand, if a force act*
upon a body, the motion of the body must undergo change.
(b) Force Is an action betifreen two bodies, fending eitber i»
separate them or to bring them closer togeU&er. For Instance, when
a stone falls to the ground, we explain the Csct by saying that a force (the attnction
of gravitation) tends to draw the earth and the stone together.
Magnetic and electric attraction, and the cohesive force between the particles of a
body, are other instances of ottmcttee force.
(c) Force applied by contsMst. In practice we apply force to a body (B)
by causing contact between it and another body (A) which has a tendency to motwti
toward B. A repulsive force is tljus called into action between the two bodies (io
■omo way which we cannot understand), and this force pushes B forward (or in the
FOBCE IN RIGID BODIEBL 333
direction of A's tendency to move) and pushes A backward, thus diminishii^ its for
ward tendency *
If, for instance, a stone be laid npon the ground, it tends to moTe downward, bat
does not do so, because a repulsive force pushes it and the earth apart Just as hard as
the force of gravity tends to draw them together.
Similarly, when we attempt to lift a moderate weight with our hand, we do so by
giving the hand a tendency to move upward. If the hand slips from the weight
this tendency moves the hand rapidly upward before our will force can dieck it.
But otherwise, the repulsive force, generated by contact between the hand (tending
upward) and the weight, moves the latter upward in spite of the force of gravity,
and pushes the hand downward, depriving it of much of the upward velocity which
it would otherwise have. It is perhaps chiefly fh>m the eftortf of Vhich we are
conscious in such cases, that we derive our notions of <Yorce."
When a moving billiard ball. A, strikes another one, B, at rest, the tendency
of A to continue moving forward is resisted by a repulsive force acting between it
and B. This force pushes B forward, and A backward, retarding its former velocity.
As explained in Art. 23 (a), ' the repulsive force does not exist in either body
ontil the two meet
(d) The repulsive force thus generated by contact between two bodies, continues to
act only so long as they remain in contact, and only so long as they tend (from *
■ome extraneous cause) to come closer together. But it is genenJly or always
accompanied by an additional repulsive force, due to the compreuion of the particles
of the bodies and their tendency to return to their original positions. This eUutic
repulsive force may continue to act after the tendency to compression has ceased.
(e) Force acts either sui a P^I or sui a puatai. Thus, when a weight
Is susiMnded by a hook at the end of a rope, gravity jmU« the weight downward, the
weifrht ptuhn the hook, and the hook puUi the rope, each of these actions being
accompanied, of course, by its corresponding and opposite "reaction.** When two
bodies collide, each pushps the other, generally for a very short time.
(1) EjqiiaUtjr of actloni aad reaction. A force always exerts itself equally
upon the two bodies between which it acts. Thus, the force (or attraction) of
gravitation, acting between the earth and a stone, draws the earth upward just as
hard as it draws the stone downward ; and the repulsive force, acting between a
table and a stone resting upon it, pushes the table and the earth downward just as
bard as it pushes the stone upward.' This is the fact expressed by Ne'vrton's
tl&lrd lainr ot motloiiy that **to every action there is always an equal and
contrary reaction.*' For measures of force, see Arts. 11, 12, 13.
If a cannonbidl in its flight cuts a leaf from a tree, we say that the leaf has reacted
against the batt with precisely the same force with which the ball acted against the
leaf. That degree of force was sufficient to cut off a leaf, but not to arrest the ball.
A ship of war, in running against a canoe, or the fist of a pugilist strikint; his
opponent in the foce, receives as violent a blow as it gives ; but the same blow that
will upset or sink a canoe, will not opprecto&Iy affect the motion of a ship, and the
blow which may seriously damage a nose, mouth, or eyes, may have no such effect
upon hard knuckles.
The resistance which an abutment opposes to the pressure of an arch ; or a retain
ing^wall to the pressure of the earth behind it, is no greater than those pressures
themselves ; but the abutment and the wall are, for the sake of safety, made capable
of sustaining much greater pressures, in case accidental circumstances should pro
duce such.
(§p) In most practical cases 'we liaTe to consider only one of the two bodies
between which a force acts. Hence, for convenience, we commonly speak as if the
force were divided into two equal and opposite forces, one for each of the two bodies,
and confine our attention to one of the bodies and the force acting upon it, neglect
ing the other. Thus we may speak of the force of steam in an engine as acting
upon the pitton, and neglect its equal and opposite pressure against the head of
the founder.
(h) That point of a body to which, theoretically, a force is applied, is called the
pplnt ot application. In practice we cannot apply force to a point, according
to the seientlflo meaning of that word ; but have to apply it distributed over an ap
preciable area (sometimes very large) of the surface of the body.
* We ordinarily express all this by saying simply that A pushes B forward, and this
is sufficiently exact for practical purpoees ; but it is well to recognize that it iH merely
a convenient expression and does not fully state the facts, and that every force neees
aarUff consists of two equal^and opposite pulls or pushes exerted between two bodiai.
334 FORCE IN RIGID BODIBS.
For the present we shall aasume that the line of action of the force passes
through toe center of gravitf of the body and forms a right angle with the sur
face at the point of application.
Art* 7 (a). Acoeleratlon. When an unresisted force, acting upon a body,
sets it in motion (i. «., gi^es it Telocity) in the direction of the force, this velocity
increases as the force continues to act; each equal interval of time (if the force
remains constant) bringing its own equal increase of velocity.
Thus, if a stone bu let full, the furce of gravity gives to it, in the first in
conceivably short interval of time, a small velocity downward. In the next equal
interval of time, it adds a second equal velocity, and so on, so that at the end of
the second interval the velocity of the stone is twice as great, at the end of the
third interval three times as great, as at the end of the first one, and so on. We
may divide the time into as small equal intervals as we please. In each such
interval the constant* force of gravity gives to the stone an equal increase of
velocity.
Such increase of velocity is called accelerstionf When a body is thrown verticaUy
uptoardy the downward acceleration of gravity appears as a retardation of the upward
motion. When a force thus acu offaitut the motion under consideration, its acceleivp
tion is called negatim.
Art* 8 (a). Tbe rate of aujoeleratloiii is the acceleration which takes
place in a given Hmsj as one second.
rb) The unit rate of acceleration is that which adds unit of velocity in a
unit of time ; or, where Bnglish measures are used, one foot per second, per geeond,
(o) For a given rate of acceleratioo, the total accelerations are of course propor
tional to the HmsM during which the velocity increases at that r&te.
Art. (tt), Iia^rs of acceleration* Suppose two blocks of iron, one fwhich
we will call A^ twice as large as the other (a), placed each upon a perfectly fricnonless
and horizontal plane, so that in moving them horizontally we are opposed by no force
tending to hold them still. Now apply to each block,
through a spring balance, a pull such as will keep the pointer of each balance always
at the same mark, as, for instance, constantly at 2 in both balances. We thus have
equal forces acting upon unequ^ masses.^ Here the rate of acceleration of a Is
double that of A ; for nrlien the forces are equal tbe rates of auseelera
ration are Inversely as tike masses*
In other words, in one second (or in any other given time) the small block of iron,
a, will acquire twice the increase of velocity that A (twice as lai^e) vdll acquire ; so
that if both blocks start at the same time from a state of rest, the smaller one, a, will
have, at the end of any given time, twice the velooitff of A, which has twice its mass.
(b) Again, let the two masses, A and a, be equal, but let the foree exerted upon a
be twice that exerted upon A. Then the rate of acceleration of a will (as before) be
twice that of A ; for, 'vrl&en tl&e masses are cqnatly tbe rates of aoeelera*
ration are alrectljr as the forces*
(e) We thus arrive at the principle that, in any case, the rate of acceleration
Is dlreotljr proportlonsil to the force and Inwerselw proportional
to the n&ass*
* We here speak of the force of gravity, exerted in a given place, as constant,
because it is so for all practical purposes. Strictly speaking, it increases a very little
as the stone approaches the earth.
t Since the rtUe of acceleration is generally of frreater conseqqence. in Meohanies,
than the total acceleration, or the "acceleration" proper, srienttfic writers (for the
sake of brevity) use the term "acceleration" to denote that rate, and the term
"total acceleration" to denote the total increase or decrease of velocity occnrrinK
during any given time. Thus, the rate of acceleration of gravity (about 32.2 ft. per
second per second) is called, simply, the "acceleration of gravity.'* As we shall not
have to use either expression very frequently, we shall, generally, to avoid misappre'
hension, give to each idea its full name ; thus, <* total acceleration " for the whoU
change of velocUy in a given case, and " rate of acceleration " for the rate of that
change.
t The mass of a body Is the quantity of matter that it contains.

(d) Htticat if we make the two forces propmrtloiial to the two maases, tbe rases
of aoceleratioQ will be equal ; or, t»r m fpiwea vmtm of acosleimtloii^ tbe
forces most be dlrectljr as the masses.
(e) Hence, also, a greater force is required to Impart a g^Ten Teloci^ to a girea
body in a short time than to impart the same Telocity in a longer time. For instance,
the forward coupling links of a long train of cam wonld snap instantly nnder a pull
safBoIent to give to the train in two seconds a Telocity of twenty miles per hour, sup
Ciing a suflBoiently powerftil looomotiTe to exist In many such cases, therefore) we
Te to be contented with a slow, instead of a rapid acceleration.
A string may safely sustain a^ weight of one pound suspended from our hand. If
we wish to impart a great upward Telocity to the weight in a very sJiort timey we eTi
dently can do so only by exerting upon it a great force; in other words, by Jerking
the sMng Tiolently upward. But if the string has not tensile strength sufficient to
transmit this force from our hand to the weight, it will break. We might safely
giTe to the weight the desired Telocity by applying a le$» Jbre^ during a longer time.
{t) When a stone falls, the fi>rce pulling the earth upward is (as remarked aboye)
equal to that which pulls the stone downward, but the tncun of tne earth is so Tastly
greater than that of the stone that its motion is totally imperctptible to us, and
would still be so. eTen if it were not counteracted by motions in other directions
in other parts of the earth. Hence we are pracHcaUy^ though not abtolutelif, right
when we say that the earth remains at rest while the stone fiJls.
(§;) Bat in the case of the two billiard balls (Art 5e. p. 388), we can dearly see
the result of die action of the force upon each of the two bodies; for tbe second
ball, B» which was at rest, now moTes forward, while the forward Telocity of tbs
lint OB», A, is dimiidshed or destroyed, its backward mention thus appearing as a

he could BOTC it by a ringle breath ; and it would continue to uoto forerer after the

matter. He can more it, if it be placed in a suitable Teasel in water, or if snqiended
from a long rope. A powerful locomotlTe that may moTe 2000 tons, cannot lift 10 tons
Terticaltar.
If we imagine two bodies, each as large and heaTy as the earth, to be precisely
balanced in a pair of scales without friction, a single grain of sand added to either
icale'paa, would giTe motion to both bodies. '
Art. lO (a). The constant force of gravity is a uniformly accelerating force
when it acts upon a body falling freely ; for it then Increases the Telocity at uie uni
form rate of .322 of a foot per second during every hundredth part of a second, or 32,2
feet per second in eTery second. Also when it acts upon a body moving down an in
clined plane; although in this case the increase is not so rapid, becatise it is caused
l^ only a part of the graTity, while another pert preeses the body to the plane, and a
third part OTercomes the friction. It is a uniformly retarding force, upon a body
thrown Tertically upward; for no matter what may be the Telocity of the body
when projected upward, it will be diminished .322 of a foot per second in each
hundredth part of a second during its rise, or 82.2 feet per second during each
entire second. At least, such would be the case were it not for the varying resistance
of the air at difforent Telocities. It is a uniformly straining force when it causes a
body at rest, to press ux)on another body ; or to pull upon a strinfi; by which it is
suspended. The foregoing expressions, like those of momentum, strain, push, pull,
lift, work, &c., do not indicate different hinde of force ; but merely different kinds of
^eets producM by the one grand principle, force.

. Art. 11 (a). Ralatton b«tw«eit force and nuuM* The mass of a body
is the quantity of matter which It contains. Ons cubic foot of water has ttotei
AS great a mass as /la^ a cubic foot of water, but a lesi mass than one cubic
foot of iron. Thus, the n'Mof a body is a measure of mass between bodies
of the tame material, but not between bodies of different materials.
(b) When bodies are allowed to fall freely in a racuum at a given place,
4hey are found to acquire equal velocities in any eiven time, of whatever
different materials they may be Qomposed. From ibis we know (Art. 9 (dV,
p. 335). that the forcee moving them downward, viz. : their respective tMighu
at that place, must be proportional to their maeaee.
Thus, in any given placet the weight of a bodv is a perfect measure of its mam.
But the weight of a given bodv changes when the body is moved from one level
above the sea to another, or from one latitude to another; while the mass of
the body of course remains t/ie same in all places. ThuSga piece of iron which
weighs a pound at the level of the sea, will weigh leee than a pound by a spring
balance, upon the top of a mountain close by. because the attraction between
the earth and a eiven mass diminishes when tne latter recedes from the earth's
center. Or if tne piece of iron weighs one pound near the North or South
Pole, it will, for the same reason, weigh leet toan a pound by a spring balaliioe
if weighed nearer to the equator and at the same level above the sea.
The difference in the weight of a body in different localities is so slight as
io be of no account in questions of ordinary practical Mechanics ;• bat
scientific exactness requires a measure of mass which will give the same
expression for the quantity of matter in a given body, wherever it may
be; and, since weighing Is a verv convenient way of arriving at the quantity
of matter in a body, it is desirable that we should still be able to express tiie
mass in terms of the weight. Now, when a given body is carried to a hieher
level, or to a lower latitude, its loss of weight is simply a decrease in the Jores
with which gravity draws it downward, and this same decrease also causes
a decrease of the velocitu which the body acquires in falling during any
given time. The change m velocity, by Art. (6), p. 884, is necessarily propor* 
nonal to the change in weight
Therefore, if the weight of a body at any place be divided by the velocity
which gravity imparts in one second at the same place (and called sr^ or the
aeceUrcttion of gravity for that place), the quotient will be tne same at aU plaoei^
and therefore serves as an invariable mei^ure of the mass.
(c) By common consent, the m&it ot mass, in scientific Mechanics, is said
io be that quantity of matter to which a unit of force can give unit rate of
acceleration. This unit rate, in countries where English measures are used,
is one foot per second, per second. It remains then to adjust the units offeree
and of maee. Two methods (an old and a new one) are in use for doing this.
We shall refer to them here as methods A and B respectively.
fd) In metl&od A, still generally used in questions of etatics^ the untt
ox n»roe is fixed as that force which is equal to the weiaht of one pound in a
certain place; i.e.. the force with which the earth at that place attracts a
certain standard piece of platinum called a pound: and the unit of maee is
not this standard piece of metal, but, as stated in (c)^ that mass to which this
unit force of one pound gives, in one second, a velocity of one foot per second.
Now the one pound attraction of the earth upon a mass of one pound will
(Art. 1, p. 330) in one second give to that mass a velocity — (/ or about 32 feet
per second; and (Art 9 (a), p. 834), for a given force the masses are inversely as
the velocities imparted in a given time. Therefore, to give in one second a
velocity of only one foot per second (instead of g or about 32) the one pound
unit of force would have to act upon a mass g times (or about 82 times) that
which weighs one pound.
This could be accomplished, with an Attwood*s machine. Art 16 (e), p. 889,

338 FORCE IN RIQID BODIES.
Tb the prodnoft^ force X time, in equation (5), writers now give the name
Impolee^ which was formerly given to eoUUion (now called liiip««t}* See
Art 24 (a). The term impuUe, as now used^ conveys merely the idea
of force acting through a certain length of time. Equation (5) tells us that an
impulse (the product of a force by the time of its action) is numerically equal
to the momentum* which it produces. Eqilation (2) tells us that any force is
numerically equal to the momentum which it can produce in one second. In
other words, the monftentmn of a body moving with a given veloci^ is
numerically equal to the force which in one second can produce or destroy
that velocity in that body; or, a force is numerically equal to the rate pw
second at which it can produce momentum. Thus, forces are proportional to
the momentums which they can produce in a given time; or, in a given time^
equal forces produce equal momentums. Therefore a force must always give
equal and opposite momentums to the two bodies between which it acts.
Art* 13 (»)• Tlk* luiiial wajr of meaanrln^ a fbrce is by ascertaining
the amount of some other force which it can counteract. Thus we may meas
ure the weight of a body by hanging it to a spring balance. The scale of the
balance then indicates the amount of tension m the spring: and we know thai
the weight of the body is equal to the tension, because the weight just pre
vents the tension firom drawing the hook upward.
Thus, fbremm are conveniently expressed In vrelfpltti9 as in pounds,
tons, &c., and they are generally so measured in Statics, and in our following
articles.
(b) A fbroe mav' be aonstant or Tarlable* When a stone rests upon
the ground, the pull of gravity upon it (i. e., its weight) remains constanlh
neither increasing nor decreasing. But when a stone is thrown upward its
weight decreases very slightly as it recedes from the earth, and again increases
as it approaches it during its fall. In this case, the force of gravity, acting
upon the stone, decreases or increases eteadUy, But a force may change
euddenlyf or irregtUariyf or may be intermittent $ as when a series of uneqiul
blows are struck by a nammer. In what follows we shall have to do only with
forces supposed to be conatarU,
Art. 14b («)• "DonuUjr* The deneitiea of materials are proportional to the
mauee contained in a given volume, as a cubio inch j or inoerselff as the volume
required to contain a given mass. Or^ since the weights at a given place are
proportional to the masses, the densities are proportional to the weights per
unit of volume (or ** specific gravities **) of the materials. Thus, a body weigh*
inff 100 lbs. per cubio foot is twice as dense as one weighing only 60 Iba. per
cuoic foot ait the same place.
Art. 15 (a). Inertia. The inability of matter to set itself in motion^ or ta
change the rato or direction of its motion, is called its inertia, or inertneeaL
\Blien we say that a certain body has twice the inertia (inertness) of a smaller
one, we mean that twice the /or<:0 is required to give it an equal ratoof acoete*
ration ; and that, since all force (Art. 5f)t acts equally in both direo*
tions, we experience twice as great a reaction (or socalled ** resistance*^ from
the larger body as from the smaller one. The ** inertia** of a body is therefora
a measure of the/ore« required to produce in it a given rato of acceleration; Ob
which is the same thing, it is a measure of the mass of the body. We mi^
therefore consider ** inertia'* and **mass** as identical.
(b) What is called the ** resistance of inertia** of a body, ia simply
reaction, (i s., one of . the two equal and opposite actions) of whatever
force we apply to the body. Hence, its amount depends not only upon tiia
mass of the Dody, but also upon the rato of acceleration which we choose to
*The momentam of a body (sometimes called its ** quantity of motion")
is equal to the product obtained by multiplying its ma»9 by its velocity. If «•
adopt the pound as the unit of mass, as in '* method B/* Art. 11 («), tha
proauct, voeight in pownds X velocity, is numerically either exactly or neurly
the same as the product, m(M8 in pounds X velocity, depending upon whether

giTe to it. Therefore we cannot tell, from the mass or weight of a bodj alone,
what its " reeistance of inertia " in any given case will be.
Art. 16 (a). Forees In opposite directions. When two equal and
opposite forces act upon a body at the same time, and in the same straight line,
we say that they destroy each other's tendencies to more the body, and it remains
at rest. If two unequal forces thus act in opposition, the smaller force and an
equal portion of the greater one are said to counteract each other in the same
way, but the remainder of the greater force, acting as an unbalanced or unresisted
force, moves the body in its own direction, as it would do if it were the only
force acting upon it.
Thus, when we move bodies, in practice, we encounter not only the " resist
ance of inertia" (i. e., we not only have to exert force in order to move inert
matter), but we are also opposed by other /otom, acting against us, as friction,
the resistance of the air. and, often, all or a part of the wHght of the body. By
'' resistances," in the following, we mean such resisting /oroM, and do not include
in the term the " resistance of xHertia,"

(e) An ** Ati¥00«l*s Machine'* consists essentially of a pulley, a flexible
cord passing over the pulley, two equal weights (one suspended at each end of
the cord), and a third weigfnt, generally much lighter than either of the other
two. The two equal weights balance each other by means of the pulley and
cord. The third weight is laid upon one of the other two weights. The force
of gravity, acting upon the third weight, then sets the masses of the three
weights in motion at a small but constantly increasing velocity. In order to do
this it mast also overcome the friction of the pulley and cord, and the rigidity

of the latter ; bat, as these are made as slight as possible, they are, fbr ooo
venience, neglected. The machine is used for Illustrating the acceleration given
to inert matter by unbalanced force, and forma an excel^nt example of the two
distinct duties which a moving force generally has to perform, vis: (1st) the
balancing of resistance, and (2nd) acceleration.
(d) In the case of a lo«oiiiotlire. drawfngr a train on a leTel, fHc
tioa and the resistance of the air are the only resistances to be balanced ; for Uie
weight of the train here opposes no resistance. Unless the force of the steam is
more than sufficient to balance the resistances, it cannot mote the train. If it
exceeds the resistances, the excess, however slight, gives motion to the inert
matter of the train. If, at any moment while the train is moving, the force of
the steam becomes jtut equal to the resUtcmces (whether by an increase of the
latter or by diminishing the force) the train will move on at a uniform velocity
equal to that which it had at the moment when the force and resistance were
equalized ; and, if these could always be kept equal, it would so move on forever.
But so lone as the excess of steam pressure over the resistances continues to act,
the velocity Is increased at each instant ; for during eaeh such instant liie excess
of force gives a small velocity in addition to that already existing.

(e) If the tractive force of a locomotive exceeds the resistances, due to friction,
grades, and air, the velocity will be accelerated ; but it then heoomeB more dilB
cult to maintain the excess of force, for the pistons must travel fast«r through
the cylinders, and the boiler can no longer supply steam fast enough to maintain
the original cylinder pressure Besides, some of the resistances increase with
increase of velocity. We thus reach a speed at which the engine, alUiough
exerting its utmost force, can do no more than balance the resistances. T^e
train then moves with a uniform velocity equal to that which it had when thia
condition was reached.
When it becomes necessary to stop at a station some distance ahead, steam It
shut off, so that the steam force of the engine shall no longer counterbalance or
destroy the resisting forces; and the number of the resistances themselves is in
creased by adding to them the friction of the brakes. The reBistanoea, thus
incneased, are now the only forces acting npon the train, and their acoeleration
is negative, or a retardation. Hence, the train moves more and more slowly, and
must eventually stop.
(f) Caution. When two opposite forces are in equilibrium, an addition to
one of the forces does not always form an unbalanced force ; for in many cases
the other force increases eguallyy up to a certain point. For Instance, when we
attempt to lift a weight, W, its downward resistance^ R, remains constantly Just
equal to our upward pull, P, however P may vary, until P exceeds W. Thas, R
can never exceed W, but may be much less than It. Indeed, when we atop pull
ing, R ceases, although W (the attraction between the eartn and the weight) of
FORCE IN RIGID BODIES. 841
eoarse remnins unchanged throaghout. Such Tariation of resisting force, to meet
varying demands, occurs in all those innumerable cases where structures sustain
varying loads within their ultimate strength.
Art. 17 (a). Work. Force, when it moves a body,* is said to do " work "
upon it. The whole work done by the force in moving the body through any dis
tance is measured by multiplying the force by thedutance; or: Work = Force
X distance. If the force is taken in pounds, and the distance in feet, the product
([or the work done) will be in footpounde ; if the force is in tons and the distance
in inches, the product will be in inchtons ; and so on.f
Thus, if a force of moves a body through we have work =
1 pound 10,000 feet 10,000 footpounds
100 pounds 100 '* 10,000 "
10,000 " 1 foot 10,000 "
or, in any case, if the fiprce be F pounds, the whole work done by it in moving a
body through s feet, is F « footpounds.
(I») The footpound, the footton, the inchpound, the inchton, etc., etc., are
called unlto oi wwrfc.f
For practical purposes, in this country, forces are most frequently stated in
pounds, and the distances (through which they act) in feet. Hence tbe ordi
nary anii of work, is the footpound. The metric nnit of work
is the klloflrrammeter, i e. l Kilogram raised 1 meter = 2.2046 pounds
raiaed 3.2800 feet, = 7.23S1 footpounds. 1 footpound = 0.13825 kilogrammeter.
(«) In most cases, a portion at least of the work done by a force is ex
pended in owereomlnv reflistiunees. Thus, when a locomotive begins
to move a train, a portion of its force works against, and balances, the resist
anoM of friction or of an upgrade, while the remainder, acting as unbalanced
toroe upon the inert mass of the train, increases its velocity.
An upward pull of exactly one pound will not raise a one pound weight, but
will merely biuanoe the downward force of gravity. If we increase the upward
pail from one pound (=» 16 ounces) to 17 ounces, the ounce so added, being
unbalanced foroe, will give motion to the mass, and will acceleirate its upward
velocity as long as it continues to act. If we now reduce the upward pull to 1
pound, thus miking it just equal to the downward pull of gravity, the body will
move on upward with a uniform velocity : but if we reduce the upward force to
15 ounces (=  pound), then there will be anjunbalanced dovmward force of 1
ounce acting upon the body, and this downward force will generate in the body
a downward or negative acceleration or retardation, and will destroy the upward
velocity in the same time aa the upward excess of 1 ounce required to produce it.
Daring any time, while the 17 ounces upward ** force" were acting against the
16 ounces downward " resistance," the product of total upward force X distance
mast be gre<Uer than that of resistance X distance. The excess is the work done
in accelerating the velocity, by virtue of which the body has acquired kinetic
energy or capacity for doing work in coming to rest.
On the other hand, while the npward velocity was being retarded, the product
of total upward force X dist was less than that of resistance X dist, the difference
being the work done by the kinetic energy against the resistance of gravity.
In practice, the term " work" is usually restricted to that j9or<ion of the work
which a force performs in balancing the resistances which act against it ; in other
words, to the work done by so much of the force as is equal to the resistance.
With this restriction, we have work ^ force X dist, = resistance X dist.
Thus, if the resistance be a friction of 4 ft>s., overcome at every point along a
distance of 8 feet; or if it be a weight of 4 S>s., lifted 3 feet high, then the work
done amounts to 4 X 8 » 12 foot9>8, provided the initial and the final velocities
are equal.
(d) In cases wbere tbe weloeity Is nnlform, as in a steadily running
macbine, tbe force is necessarily equal to the resistance ; and where the velocities
at the beginning and end of any work are equal (as where the machine starts
from rest and conies to rest again) the mean force is equal to the mean resistance.
In such cases, therefore, the two products, mean force X distance, and mean
resistance X distance, are equal, and we have, as before,
Work =^ force X dist = resistance X dist.
♦ A man who Is standing still is not considered to be working, any more than
is a post or a rope when sustaining a heavy load ; although he may be support
ing an oppressive burden, or holding a carbrake with all his strength ; for his
force moves nothing in either case.
t These products must not be confounded with momerUs, — force X leverage.
342 FOKCE IN RIGID BODIES.
(f ) In calculating the work done by machinery, etc., allowance must be made for
this expenditure of a portion of the work in overcoming resistances. Thus, in pump
ing water, part of the applied force is required to balance the friction of the different
parts of the pump; so that a steam or water "power,** exerting a force of 1(H) &8.,
and moving 6 feet per second, cannot raise 100 fi>8. of water to a height of 6 feet
per second. Therefore machines, so far from gaining power ^ according to the popular
idea, actually lose it in one sense of the word. In Uarting a piece of machinery, the
forces employed have (1st) to balance, react a^rainst, or destroy the resisting force
of friction and the cohesive forces of the material which is to be operated on ; and
(2d) to give motion to the unresisting matter of the machine and of the material
operated on, after the resisting forces which had acted upon them have thus been
rendered ineffective. But after the desired velocity has been established, the forces
have merely to bcUance the resistances in order that the velocity may continue uniform.
(g) That portion of the work of a machine, etc., which is expended against fric
tion is sometimes called <* lost work " or ** prejudicial ^rorky" M'hile only
that portion is called " useful vrork " which renders visible and tangible service
in the shape of output, etc. Thus, in pumping water, the work done in overcoming
the friction of the inimp and of the water is said to be lost or prejudicial, while the
useful work would be represented by the product, weight of water deliverwl X height
to which it is lifted.
The distinction, although artiflcial and somewhat arbitrary, is often a very con
venient one ; but the work is of course not actually ** lost," and still less is it ** pre
judicial ;" for the water could not be delirered without first overcoming the resist
ances. A merchant might as well call that portion of bis money lost which he
expends for clerkhire, etc.
(it) For a given force and distance^ tlie i^ork done is independent of the
time $ for the product, force X distance, then remains the same, whatever the time
may be. But the distance through which a given force will work at a given velocity
is of course proportional to the time during which it is allowed to work. Thus, in
order to lift 50 pounds 100 feet, a man must do the same work, (= 6000 footpounds)
whether he do it in one hour or in ten ; but, if he exerts constantly the scrnie foroey
he will lift 50 &>s. ten times as high in ten hours as in one, and thus will do ten times
the work. Thus, for a given force, the vrork is proportional to the tinte*
Art. 18 (a), Poorer. The quantity of any work may evidently be considered
without regard to the time required to perform it ; but we often require to know the
rate at which work can be done ; that is, how much can be done within a certain
time.
The rate at which a machine, etc. can work is called its power. Thus, in selecting
a steamengine, it is important to know how much it can do per minute, hour, or dag.
We therefore stipulate that it shall be of so many horsepowers; which means nothing
more than that it shall be capable of overcoming resisting forces at the rate of so
many times 33,000 footpounds per minute when running at a uniform velocity, i. e.,
when force X distance = resistance X distance.
(b) The liorsepoiver, 33,000 footpounds per minute, or 550 footpounds per
second, is the unit of ponrer, or of rate of ivork, commonly used in connec
tion with engines. The metric horsepoorer, called "force dt
cheval," " chevalvapeur," or (German) " Pferdekraft," is 75 kilogrammeters pel
second = 542.48 ftibs. per sec. = 32,549 ft.ft>s. per minute = 0.9863 horsepower. 1
horsepower = 1.0138 " force de cheval." In theoretical Mechanics the footponud
per second is used in English measure ; and the lUlo§;rammeter per ceo
ond in metric measure,
1 footpound per second =» 0.13826 kilogrammeter per second.
1 kilogrammeter per second = 7.2331 footpounds per second.
(c) Up to the time when the velocity becomes uniform, the power, or rate 9t
vrork, of the train, in Art. 16 (d), is variable, being gradually axelerated.
For in each second it overcomes its resistances (and moves its point of application)
through a greater distance than during the preceding second. Also, after the steam is
shut off, the rate of work is variable, being gradually retarded. When the force of
the steam just balances the resistances, the rate of work is uniform.
(d) Po«rer = force X velocity. Since the rate of work is equal to the work
done in a given Hrne, as so m&xxy footpounds per second, we may find it by dividing the
work in footpounds done during any given time by the number of seconds in tkst
time. Thus

these the engine, watei>wheel, horse, or other motive power, exerting a given

As already remarked, a force equal to the weight of any body, at any place,
will, in one second, give to the mass or matter of the body a velocity — g, or
(on the earth's surface) about 32.2 feet per second. Or if a body be thrown
\Lpward with a velocity — ■ g, its weight will stop it in one second.
Since, in the latter case, the velocity at the beeinning and at the end of the
■econd are, respectively,— g feet per second, ana — 0, the mean velocity of the
iody is £ feet per second. Therefore, during the second it will rise _^ feeC^
2 2
or about 16 feet. In other words, the work which any body can do, by virtue
of being thrown vertically upward with an initial velocity (velocity at the
gtart) otg feet per second, is equal to the product of its weight multiplied of
J feet Or,

Smppose now that the same body be thrown upward with double the former
velocity; i. e., with an initisd velocity equal to.2 g (or about 64 feet per seconds
dince gravity requires (Art 8 c), two seconds to impart or destroy this
velocity, the body will now move upward during two seconds, or twice as long
a Urns as before. But its mean velocity now is p. or twice as great as before.
Therefore, moving for double the time and with double the velocity, it will
teavel /our times as far, overcoming the same resistance as before (viz. : its
own weight) through /our times the distance.
Thus, by making its initial velocity v — 2 p, {. «., by doubling its L. making

it — 2, we have enabled the body to do four times the work which it could

And it is plain that this would be ithe case for any other velocity. Now the
total amount of the work which the body can do, is independent of the
amount of the resistance against which it is done; for if we increase the
resistance we diminish the distance in the same proportion, so that their
product, or the amount of work, remains the same. The above formula^
therefore, applies to all cases ; i. 6., the total amoiuit ot 'vrorfc, in fo^

In these equations, the weight is that which the body has in any given plaoe^
and g is the acceleration of gravity at that same place.
(b) Since the weight of a body j^ j^^ ^^^ ^^^^ 1^^ ^ 336), the last formula
becomes, by "method A,^* Art. 11 (d).

(c) In the above equations the left hand side represents the work (or resis
tance overcome through a. distaiice) in any given case, while the right hand
side represents the Unetlo energy of the body, by which it is enabled to do
that work. Some writers call this energy "via ▼!▼»,»» or " living force" a
name formerly given (for convenience) to a quantity just double the energy,
or — mass X velocity*.
(d) As an illustration of the foregoing, take a train weighing 1,120,008
pounds, and moving at the rato of 22 feet per second. The kinetic energy
ef such a train is

That is, if steam be shut off, the train will perform a work of 8,400^000 fLlba.
in coming to rest. Thus, if the sum of all the resistances (of friction, air,
grades, curves, ete.) remained constantly — 6000 lbs.,* the train would travel

5000 lbs.
(e) We thus see that the total quantity of work which a body can do by virtua
of its motion alone, and without assistance ftom extraneous forces, is in pi^
portion to the weight of the body and to the square of its velocity when it
begins to do the work. For example, suppose that a train, at the momaDft
when steam is shut off, has a velocity of 10 miles an hour and that the kinetio
energy, which that velocity gives it, will by itself carry the tram against th»

tiavel JL, 1, 2 ^ or 4 miles (or ^ 4, 9 or 10 times ^ mile) before coming to

Bat the rate of work done is proportional simply to the resistance and the
ntoeity (Art* IBd, p. 842). Therefore, the locomotive whose steam is shat oft
at 20, 80 or 40 miles per honr, will require, for running its 4. 9 or 16 quarters
tf a mile, but 2, 3 or 4 times as many seconds ae it required at 10 miles per hour.
The same principle applies to all cases of acceleration or of retardation.f
For instance, in the case of a falling body, the distance through which it
mnst fall in order to acquire any giren velocity is as the square of that
Telocity, but the time required is simply as the velocity. Also, if a body is
ttirown Terticanlly upward with any given velocity, the height to which it will
rise bvh the time gravitv destroys that velocity, will be as the square of the
Yelooity,but the time wiU be simply as the velocify.
Art. SO (a). The momentnin of a moving body (or the product of its
mass by its velocity) is the rate, in footpounds per second, at which it works
against a resisting force equal to its own weighty as in the case of a body thrown
vertically upward. At the instant when it comes to rest, its momentum, or rate
of work, is of course = nothing. Therefore its mean rate of work, or mean
momentum, is onehalf of that which it has at the moment of startiug.
Thus, suppose such a body to weigh 5 lbs. Then, whatever its velocity may
be, 6 pounds is the resisting force, against which it must work while coming
to resL Let the initial velocity be 96 feet per second. Then its
momentum ■• mass X velocity «— 6 X 96 — 480 footpounds per second?

Now, in falling, the weight of the body (5 lbs.), would ^ve it a velocity of 96

M £ 1. 3. Three seconds, therefore, is the time during which it can work.
How, if the mean rate of work in footpounds per seeond (at which a body

(o) In many oases we ma3r conveniently estimate the total potential enei^
of a systenu Thus (neglecting the resistance of Uie air) the explosive energy
of a pound of powder is » the weight of any given cannon ball X the height
to which the force of that powder could throw it. •» the weight of the ball X
(the square of the initial velocity given to it by the explosion) i 20. But in
other cases we care to find only a certain definite portion of the total potential
energy. Thus, the toM potential energy of a olockweight* would not be
exhausted until the weight reached the center of the earth: but we generally
deal only with that portion which was stored In it by windingup. and which
tt will give out again as kinetio energy in running down. This portion is • th^
weight X the height which it has to run down • the weight X (the square of
the velocity which it would acquire in fallin^/V>oe{y through that height) i 2if.
(d) There are many cases of energy in which we may hesitate as to whether
the term "kinetic" or "potential** Is the more appropriate. Thus, the pres
sure of steam in a boiler is believed to be due to tne violent motion of the
particles of steam, which bombard the inner surface of the boilershell; so
that, from this point of view, we should call the energy of steam kinetie. But,
on tne other hand, the shell itself remains stationary; and, until the steam is
permitted to escape from the boiler, there fs no outward evidence of energy
in the shape of work. The energy remains stored up in the boiler ready kt
nse. From this point of view, we may call th e energy of steam potential energy.
(e) It seems reasonable to suppose that further knowledge as to the nature
of other forms of energy, apparently potential (as is that of steam), might
reveal the fact that all energy is ultimatiely kinetio.
Art. 23 (a). There is much confusion of ideas in regard to those
actions to which, in Mechanics, we give the names, *' force," *• enerfry«'*
** power," etc. This arises from i he fact that in everyday language these
terms are used indiscriminately to express the sime ideas.
Thus, we commonly speak of the " force " of a cannonball flying through the
air, meaning, however, the repulsive force which would be exerted between the
ball and a building, etc. with which it might come into contact. This force
would tend to move a part of the building along in the direction of the flight
of the ball, and would move the ball backward ; (i. e., would retard Its forward
motion). But this great repulsive "force" does not exist until the ball strikes
the building. Indeed, we cannot even tell, from the velocity and weight of the
ball, what tne amount of the force will be, for this depends upon the strength,
etc., of the building. If the building is of glass, the foroe mav be so slight as
scarcely to retard the motion of the ball perceptibly, while,'if the building is an
* For convenience we may thus speak of the energy of a mdem of bodies (the
earth and the clockweight) as resiaing in only one of the bodies.
FORCE IN RIOIB BODIES. 347
earth embankment, the force will be much greater, and may retard the motion
oX the ball so rapidly as to entirely stop it before it has gone a foot farther.
The moving ball has great (kinetic) energy; but the only force that it exerts
during its flij^ht is the comparatively very slight one required to push aside the
particles of air.
The energy of the ball, and therefore the total work which it can do, are inde^
pendent of the nature or the obstruction which it meets ; but since the work is
the product of the resistance oifered and the distance throu^^h which it can be
overcome, the distance must be inversely as the resistance offered ; or (which is
the same thing) inversely as the force required of, and exerted by, the ball in
balancing that resistance.
Since work, in ft.lb8. => force, in &>s., X distance traversed, in feet, we have
force in lbs. = work, in ft.lbs. _ rate of work,
' distance traversed, in feet in ft.lbs. per fool.
Art. S4 (a). An impact, blow, stroke or collision takes place when a
moving body encounters another body. The peculiarity of such cases is that
the time of adion of the repulsive force due to the collision Is so short that een
erally it is impossible to measure it, and we therefore cannot calculate the force
ttovsx the momentum produced by it in either of the two bodies : but since both
bodies undergo a great change of velocity (i.e., a great acceleration) during this
Short time, we know that the repulsive force acting between them must be very
great.
We shall consider only cases of direet Impact, or impact where the centers
of gravity of the two bodies approach each other in one straieht line, and where
the nature of the surfaces of contact is such that the repulsive
force caused by the impact also acts through those centers and in their line of
approach.
(b) This forcCj acting equally upon the two bodies (Art. fi/), for the
same length of time (namely, tne time during which they are in contact), neces
sarily produces equal and opposite changes in their momentums (Art. 12, p. 888).
Hence, the total momentum (or product, mass X velocity) of the ttoo bodies is
always the same after impact as it was before.
(c) But the relative behavior of the two bodies, after collision, depends upon
their elasticity. If they could be perfectly inelastic, their velocities, after im
pact, would be equal. In other words, they would move on together. If they
could be perfectly elastic, they would separate from each other, after collision,
with the same velocity with which they approached each other before collision.
(d) Between these two extremes, neither of which is ever perfectly realized in
Enictice, there are all possible degrees of elasticity , with corresponding differences
1 the behavior of the bodies. The subject, especially that of indirect impact, is
a very complex one, but seldom comes up in practical civil engineering.
(e) " In some careful experiments made at Portsmouth dockyard, England, a
man of medium strength, and striking with a maul weighing 18 lbs., the handle
•f which was 44 inches long, barely started a bolt about '% of an inch at each
blow ; and it required a quiet pressure of 107 tons to press the bolt down the
same quantity ; but a smsQl additional weight pressed it completely home."

GRA.VITY — ^PALLING BODI£S.
«RATITT. FAIililire BOBIK8.
Bodies flAlllngr Tertleally. A body, falling freely in racuo
from a state of rest, acquires, by the end of tbe first second, a Telocity of about
32.2 feet per second ; and, in each succeeding second, an cuidition of velocity, or
aoceleratiod, of about 82.2 feet per second. In other worda^ tbe Telocity receivM in
each second an acceleration of about '62.2 feet per second, or is accelerated at tbe
raU of about 32.2 feet per second, per B^cond. This rate ie generally called (fbr
brerity, see footBote,t p. 334), simply the sM)oeleratloia of gravity (bat see *
below), and is denoted by p« It increases ftx>m about 82.1 f«et per second, par
second, at the equator, to about 32.5 at the poles. In the latitude of London it if
82.19. These are its values at sealevel ; but at a height of 6 miles above that level
it is diminished by only about 1 part in iOO. For most practical purpoeee it may be
taken at 32.2.
Caution. Owlnar to tbe resistance of the air none of the follow

DESCENT ON INCLINED PLANES.
349
I^escent on Inclined plirnes. When a body, U. is placed
upon an inclined plane, AC, its whole weight W is not employed m giviug it
▼elocity (as in the case of bodies falling vertically)
but a portion, P, of it (= W X cosine of o = W X
cosine of a*) is expended in perpendicular pressure
against the plane; while only S, (= W X sine of o
— W X sine of a*) acts upon U in a direction parallel
to the surface AC of the plane, and tends to slide it
down that surf.
The acceleration, generated in a given body in a
given time, is proportional to the force acting upon
the body in the direction of the acceleration
Hence If we make W to represent bv scale
tbe ttccfeleration g (say 32.2 ft per l*c) which gray
would give to U in a sec if falling freely, then S will
give, by the same scale, the acceleration in ft per
sec which the actual sliding force 8 would give to U in one sec if there were
no friction between U and the plane. We have therefore
theontio^ acceleration down the plane = gr x siae of a.
Therefore we have only to substitute "^. sin a" in place of "flr;" and the

or " fall " A £ in the equations, in order to obtain the acceleratioos etc as

PENDULUMS.
Tex numbers of ribrations which diff pendulums will make in any ^Ten place la
a giren time, are inversely as the square roots of their lengths : thus, if one of them
Is 4, 9, or 16 times as long as the other, its sq rt will be 2, 3, or 4 times as great ; but
its number of vibrations will be but ^ /^i or i^ as great. The times in which diff
pendulums will make a yibration, are directly as the sq rts of their lengths. Thna,
if one be 4, 9, or 16 times as long as the other, its sq rt will be 2, S, or 4 times aa
great ; and so also will be the time occupied in one of its vibrations.
The length of a pendulum vibrating seconds at the level of the sea, in a Taonmn.
in the lat of London (51^ North) is 39.1393 ins ; and in the lat of N. York (409^
North) 39.1013 ins. At the equator about ^ inch shorter ; and at the poles, about ffg
Inch longer. Approximately enough for experiments which occupy but a few sec,
we may at any place call the length of a seconds pendulum in the open air, 89 ins ;
half sec, fl^^ ins ; and may assume that long and short ribrations of the same pen
dulum are made in the same time ; which they actually are, very nearly. For mea»
nring depths, or dists by sound, a sufficiently good sec pendulum may be* made of a
pebble (a small piece of metal is better) and a piecfi of thread, suspended fh>m a
common pin. The length of 39 ins should be measured from the centre of the pebble.
PXBJSTDULUMS, ETC. 351
In Btartliig tlie Tibratlons, the pebble, or boby must not be thrown into motion, but
meroly lei drop^ after extending the string at the proper height..
To find the lenKrtb of a pendalam read to make a given number of
vibrations in a min, divide 375 by said reqd number. The square of the quot will bo
the length in ins, near enough for such temporary purposes as the foregoing. Thus,
for a pendulum to make 100 vibrations per min, we have ^^ =» 3.75 ; and the square
of 3.75 = 14.06 ins, the reqd length.
To find (lie namber of ▼ibrationti per min for a pendulum of
given length, in ins, take the sq rt of said length, and div 375 by said sq rt. Thus,
for a pendulum 14.06 ins long, the sq rt is 3.75 ; and z=i » 100, the reqd number.
Rkk. 1. By practising before the sec pendulum of a dock, or one prepared as Just
stated, a person will soon learn to ooant 5 in a sec, for a few sec in succession ; and will
thus be able to divide a sec into 5 equal parts ; and this may at times be oseftil for
▼ery rough estimating when he has no pendalam.
Oentre of Oscillation and Pereusslon*
Bsv. 2. When a pendulum, or any other suspended body, is vibrating or oscillating
backward and forward, it is plain that those particles of it which are far front the
point of suspension move faster than those which are near it. But there is always
a certain point in the body, such that if all the particles were concentrated at it, so
that all should move with the same actual vel, neither the number of oscillations,
nor their angular vel, would be changed. This point is called the center of oKiUa
Hon. It is not the same as the cen of grav, and is always farther than it fh)m the
point of suspension. It is also the cerUre of percussion of the suspended vibrating
body. The dist of this point fh>m the point of snap is found thus : Suppose the body
to be divided into many (the more the better) small parts ; the smaller the better.
Find the wc^gnt of each part. Also find the cen of grav of each part ; also the dist
firom each such con of gray to the point of susp. Square each of these diets, and
mult each square by the wt of the corresponding small part of the body. Add the
products together, and call their sum p. Next mult the weight of the entire body
by the dist of its cen of grav from the point of susp. Gall the prod p. Divide p hyg*
Thinp is the moment of inertia of the body, and if divided by the wt of the
body the sq rt of the quotient will be the Radius of Gyration.
Angrnlar Telocity.
When a body revolves around any axis, the parts which are farther from that
axis move faster than those nearer to it. Therefore we cannot assign a stated
linear velocity in feet per second, or miles per hour etc, that shall apply to every
patriot it. But every part of the body revolves around an entire circle, or
through an angle of 860P, in the same time. Hence, all the part« have the same
▼elocity in deare^i per second, or in revolutions per seoond. This is called the
angular velocity. Scientific writers measure it by the length of the arc de
scribed by any point In the body in a given time, as a second, the length of the
arc being measured by the number of times the length of Us ottn radius la con
tained in it. When so measured,
Angular velocity __ liaear velocity (in feet etc) per sec
in radU per second  length of radius (in feet etc)
Here, as before, the angular velocity is the same for all the points in the body,
because the velocities of the several points are directly as their radii or dis
tances from the axis of revolution.
In each revolution, each point describes the circumference of the circle in
which ft revolves =» 2 v r (ir = 3.1416 etc ; r = radius of said circle). 0>nse
qaently, if the body makes n revolutions per second, the length of the arc de
scribed by each point in one second is 2irrn; and the angular velocity of the
body, or linear velocity of any point measured in its own radii, is .
2irr»
2 w » «= say 6.2832 X revs per second = say .1047 X revs pe» f^inute.
Moment of Inertia.
Sappose a body revolving around an axis, as a grindstone; or oscillating, like
apeodnlum. Suppose that the distance from the axis of revolution (which, in
the pendulum, Is the point of suspension) to each individual particle of the
body, has been measured; and that the square of each such distance has been
multiplied by the weight of that particle to which said distance was measured.

Ill practice we may suppose the body to be divided into portions measuring
a cubic inch (or some other small size) each : and use these insteaO of the theo
retical infioitely small particles. The smaller these portions are taken, the
more nearly correct will be the result.
When the moment of inertia of a mere surface is wanted (instead of that of a
body), we suppose the surface to be divided into a numl)er of small areaSf and
use them instead of the weights of the small portions of the body.

364 CENTRIFUGAL FORCE.
GEBTTRIFVOAI. FORCE.
When a body a, Fig. 1 , moves in a circular path abd^ it tends, at each point, as
a or 6^ to move in a tangent at or bif to the circle at that point. But at each
point, as a, etc., in the path, it is <ie;fiected from the tangent by a force acting
toward the center, c, of tlie circle. This force may be the tension of a string, ca,
or the attraction between a planet at e and its moon a^ or the inward pressure
of the rails, ah,OB & curve, etc., etc. Like all force, it is an action between two
bodies, tending either to separate them or to draw them closer together, and act
ing equally upon both. (See Art. 5 (6), p. 882). In the case of the string, itpnlU
the body a, Un/xird the center, r, and the nail or hand, etc., at c, toward the body
at a or 6, etc. ; i. e.^from the center. In the case of a oar on a curve it pushes the
car toward the center, and the rails from the center. The pull or push on the
revolving body toward the center iscalled the eentripetttl forc«; while the
pull or push tending to move the defecting body from the center is called the
cenArira^al force. These two *^ forces," being merely the two ** sides " ^as
it were) of the same stress, are necessarily equal and opposite, and can onlv exist
toffether. The moment the stress or tension exceeds ihe strength (or inherent
conesive force) of the string, etc., the latter breaks. The centripetal and centrif
ugal forces therefore instantly cease ; and the body, no longer disturbed by a
deflecting force, moves on, at a uniform velocity,* in a tangent, at or M', etc., to
its circular path*; «. «., at right angles to the direction whloh the centrifugal force
had at the moment it ceased.

two directions. The equal and opposite horizontal components H, of o and of th<*
corresponding slice o', being parallel to mn, have no tendency to pull the rim ^^art at
m or n. Hence, the pull on a string S, Fig. 3, perpendicular to mn, is the sum of the
components Y of all the slices. For each very thin slice. Fig. 6 (greatly exaggerated)

t The rim* of revolving wheels are usually made strong enough to resist the tension

support the weight of the wheel. But if the rim breaks, the centrifugal forces of its
fragments come entirely upon the spokes; and, since the breakage is always irregn
lar, some of the spokes will always receive more than their share.

368 8T4TICS.
STATICS.
FORCES.
!• Statics Defined. The science of 3tatics, or of equilibrium of forces;
takes account of those very numerous cases where the forces under con
sideration are in equilibrium, or balanced. It embraces, therefore, all cases
of bodies which are said to be "at rest."*
2. In the problems usually presented in civil engineering, a certain
given force, or certain given forces, applied to a stationary* body (as a bridge
or building) tend to produce motion, either in the structure as a whole or in
one or more of its members; and it is required to find and to apply another
force or other forces which will balance the tendency to motion, and thus
permit the structure and its members to remain at rest. See If 33, below.
3. Equilibrium* Suppose a body to be acted upon by certain forces.
Then those forces are said to be in equilibrium, when, as a whole, they pro
duce no change in the body's state of rest or of motion, either as regards its
motion as a whole along any particular line (motion of translation), or as
regards its rotation about any point, either within or without the body.
In such cases the body also is said to be in equilibrium. See % 84, below.
4* A body may be in equilibrium as regards the forces imder consideration,
even though not in equilibrium as regards other forces. Thus, a. stone, held
between the thumb and finger, is in equilibrium as regards their two equal
pressures, even though it may be lifted upward by the excess of the muscular
force of the arm over the attraction between the earth and the stone. Simi
larly, on a level railroad, a car is in equilibrium as regards gravity and the
upward resistance of the rails, although the horizontal pull of the locomotive
may exceed the resistance to traction.
5. molecular Action. Any force, applied to a body, is in fact made
up of a system of forces, often parallel or nearly so, applied to the several
particles of the body. Thus, the attraction exerted by the earth upon a
grain of sand or upon the moon is, strictly speaking, a cluster of nearly par
allel forces exerted upon the several particles of those bodies ; but, for con
venience, and so far only as concerns their tendency to move the body as a
whole, we conceive of such forces as replaced by a single force, equal to
their sum and acting in one line. In thus considering the forces, we as
^me that the bodies are absolutely rigid, so that each of them acts as a
angle " material particle" or " material point."
6. Transmission of Force. The upward pressure of the ground, upon
a stone resting upon it, acts directly only upon those particles which are
nearest to the ground. These, in turn, exert a (practically) equal upward
force upon those immediately above them, and so on; and the i<^rce is thus
transmitted throughout the stone.
7. Rigid Bodies. In treating of bodies as rigid, we assume that the
intermolecular forces hold the several particles absolutely in their original
relative positions.
It is not the material that resists being broken, but the forces which hold its
particles in their places. Thus, a cake of ice may sustain a great pressure;
but its particles yield readily when its cohesive forces are destroyed by a
melting temperature.
8. Force Units. The force units generally used in statics are those of
weight, as the pound and the kilogram. See Conversion Tables, p. 235.
In statics we have no occasion to consider the masses of bodies (except
* Strictly speaking, absolute rest is scarcely conceivable, since all bodies
are actually in motion (see Art. 3, p. 331). so that unbalanced forces produce
merely changes in the states of motion oi bodies. Yet, for a body to be at
rest, relative to other bodies, is a very common condition, and, in practical
statics, we usually regard the body under consideration as being at rest
relatively to the earth or to some other large body, so that the oaange of
state of motion, due to the action of unbalanced force upon it, consists in a
change from relative rest to relative motion. See % 33, below.
FORCES. 359
in so far as these determine their weights, or the force of gravity exerted upon
them), bodies being regarded merely as the media upon and through which
the forces under consideration are exerted. Hence we require, in statics,
no units of mass; and, as the bodies are regarded as being "at rest," no upits
of time, velocity, acceleration, momentum, or energy.
0. Forces, how Petermlned. A force is fully determined when we
know (1) its amount (as in pounds, or in some other weight unit), (2) its
direction, (3) its sense (see % 10), and (4) its position or its point of applica
tion.
10. When a force is represented by a line, the length of the line
mav be made to represent by scale the amount of the force, and its direction
and position may often be made to indicate those of the force, while the sense
of the force may be shown by arrows or letters affixed to the lines, or by the
signs, + and — .
Thus, the directuma of the forces represented by lines a and 6, Fig. 1, are
vertical, and those of e and d are horizontal. The sense of a is upward, of b
downward, of c righthanded, of d lefthanded. Thus, a and b are of like
direction, but of opposite sense; and so with c and d. In treating of vertical
or horieontal forces, we usually call upward or righthanded forces posi
tive, and downward or lefthanded forces nef^rative, as indicated by the
signs^ 4 and — , in Fig. 1.^ When a force is designated by two letters, at
tached to the line representing it, one at each end of the line, the sense of the
force may be indicated by the order in which the letters are taken. Thus, in
Fig. 1, having regard to the directions of the arrows, we have forces, ef, ha*
k Cand n m,
11. Hfine of Action, etc. The point (see ^ 6) at which a force P, Fig. 2,
is supposed to be applied, as a, is called its point of application. But
the force is transmitted, by the particles, throughout the body (see ^ 6), and
:t:i
k I *n n
— y ■< —
g
ri». 1.
the e€fect of the force, as regards the body as a whole, is not changed if it
be re^rded as acting at any other ix>int, as 6, in its line of action. We
may therefore regard any point in that line as a point of application of the
force. For instance, the tendency to move the stone, Fig. 2, as a whole, will
not bo changed if, instead of pushing it, at a, we apply a puU (in the same
direction and in the same sense) at b; and if a weight, P, be laid upon the
top of the hook, at b. Fig. 3, it will have the same tendency, to move the
hook as a whole, as it has when suspended from the hook as in the Fig.
A force cannot actually be applied to a body at a point outside of the sub
stance of the body, as between the upper and lower portions of the hook in
Fig. 3, yet this portion also of the line a 6 is a part of the line of action of the
force. The vertical force, exerted by the weight, P, is transmitted to b by
means c^ bending moments in the bent portion of the hook.
12. Stress. (See Art. 1, Strength of Materials, p. 454.) Opposing
forces, applied to a body by contact (see Art. 5 c, p. 332), cause stress, or the
exertion of intermolecular force, within it, or between its particles, tending
to pull them apart (tension) or to press them closer together (compression).
The stress, due to two equal opposing forces, is equal to one of them.
Tension and Compression. Ties, Struts, etc. If the action of
the forces tends to pull farther apart the particles of the body upon which
they act, the stress is called a tension or pull, or a tensile stress. If it
tends to press them claser together, the stress is called a pressure, com
tvession or push, or a compressive stress. A long slender piece sustaining
tension is called a tie. One sustaining compression is called a strut or
X)8t. One capable of sustaining either tension or compression is called a
tiestrut or struttie.
360 STATICS.
MOMENTS.
13. Moments. If, from any point, o, or </, Fig. 4, a line, o c or o' «, be
drawn normally to the line of action, n m, of a force. Pi, whether the point, o
or o\ be within or outside of the body upon which the force, Pi, is acting, said
line, ocot </ «, is called the arm or leverage of the force about such point;
and if the amount of the force, in lbs., eto., be multiplied by the length of the
arm, in ft., etc., then the product, in ft.lbs., etc., is called the moment of
the force about that point.* The moment represents the total tendency of
the force to produce rotation about the given point. A force has evidently
no moment about any point in its line of action.
14. Sense of Moments. Since the moment of Pi about o. Fig. 4,
tends to cause rotation (about that point) in the direction of the motion of
the hands of a clock, as we look at the clock and at the figure, or from left to
right, as indicated by the arrow on the circle around o, it is called a clock
wise or righthand moment ; but the moment of the same force about </
tends to produce rotation from right to left. Hence it is called a counter
clockwise or lefthand moment, as is also that of P« about o. Right
hand or clockwise moments are conventionally considered as positive,
or +t and lefthand or counterclockwise moments as negativet or — ;
15. The pl£ine of a moment is that plane in which lie both the line
of action and the arm of the force.
16. The resultant or combined tendencv of two or more moments in
the same plane is equal to the algebraic sum ox the several moments. Thus,
Fig. 4, if the forces, Pi, P2, and Pa, are respectively 6, 5, and 3 lbs., and if
the arms, oc, oy, and o 0, of their moments about o are respectively 7* 6, and
8 ft., we have

FIgr. S. Figr. 6.
17. If the algebraic sum of the moments is zero, they are in equilibrium
and tend to cause no rotation of the body about the given point.
Thus, in Fig. 6, where W is the weight, and G the center of ^pavity of the
body, and R the upward reaction of the left support, a, taking moments
about the right support, b, we have R / — W a; — zero ; or R i — W «. Hence,

having W, x and Z, to find R, we have R —  . .
Similarly, in Fig. 6, where W — weight of beam alone, and g^ the center of
gravity of W, is at the center of the span /, so that the leverage b g of the
weight of the beam about h, is ■  , we take moments about &, thus:
R Z i O o — W  — Mm — N n — zero; or
Mm + Nn + W — — Oo

'*'Note that a very small force may have a great moment about a point,
while a much greater force, passing nearer to the same point, may have a
smaller moment about it ; or, passing through the jwint, no moment at all.

Note that the moments^ of two or more forces, about a given point,
may be in equilibrium, while the forces themselves are not in equilibrium.
See 1 84, below.
18. Center of Moments* So far as concerns equilibrium of moments,
it is immaterial what point is selected as a center of moments ; but it is gen
erally convenient to take the .center of moments in the line of action of
one (or more, if there be concurrent forces, see ^ 19) of the unknown forces,
for we thus eliminate that force or those forces from the equation.

coincide, as a and b. or c and d; noncolinear when they do not coincide, as
b and /; coplanar when their lines of action lie in one plane,* as a, b, c, d and
c, or b, f and (7, etc. ; noncoplanar, as c and g, or 6, / and d, when they do not

nonparallel when those lines are not parallel, as b and /.
*Acting wpon a plane, as in Fig. 9, must not be confounded with acting in
that plane, as in Figs. 70, etc.

STATICS.
Any two parallel forces must be coplanar. Three or more parallel forces
may or may not be coplanar. Any two concurrent forces must be coplanar.
Three or more concurrent forces mav or may not be coplanar. Any two
ooplanar forces must be either parallel or concurrent.
COMPOSITION AND BESOLUTION OF FORCES.
SO. Kesultant. A single force, which can produce, upon a body con«
sidered as a whole, the same effect as two or more given forces combined, is
called the resultant of those forces. Thus, in Fig. 10 (b), a downward pres
sure, G, ■= to + W, is the resultant of the downward pressures w and W;
and, in Fig. 11 (6), a downward pressure, =■ W — tr, is the resultant of the
downward pressure W and the upward pull w of the leithand string.*
31. Component. Any two or more forces which, together, produce,
upon a body considered as a whole, the same effect as one given force, are
called the components of that force, which thus' becomes their resultant.
Thus, in Fig. 10 (6), w and W are the components of the total force, G, =
«; + W. In Fig. 1 1 (6), + W ( = 5) and m) (  — 3) are the components of G.*
22. If we take into account the resultant of any given forces, those forces
(components) themselves must of course be left out of account, as regards
their action upon the body as a whole; although we may still have to con
eider their effect upon its particles. Vice versa, if the forces (components)
are considered, their resultant must be neglected.

23. Antiresultant. The antiresultant of one or more forces is a sinsle
force which, acting upon any body or system of bodies considered as a wh(ue,
produces an effect eoual, but opposite, to that of their resultant. In other
words, the antiresultant is the force reouired to hold the given force or
forces in equilibrium. Thus, in Fig. 10 (o), the upward reaction, G, of the
sround, is the antiresultant of the two downward forces, w and W ; and the
downward resultant, W 4 to, of W and to, is the antiresultant of G. In
Fig. 11 (6), G (upward) is the antiresultant of W (downward) and to (acting
upward through the lefthand string). Similarly, this upward pull of tff is
the antiresultant of W and G.
24. In any system of balanced forces (forces in equilibrium), any one of
the forces is the antiresultant of all the rest ; and any two or more of them
have, for their resultaht, the antiresultant of all the rest. In such a system,
the resultant (and the antiresultant) of all the (balanced) forces is zero.
25. Anticomponent. The anticomponents of a given force, or of a
given system of forces, are any two or more forces whose resultant is the anti
resultant of the given force or of the given system of forces.
26. Composition and Resolution of Forces. The operation of
finding the resultant of any given system of forces is called the composition of
forces; while that of finding any desired components of a given force is called
the resolution of the force.
♦ For convenience, we here reverse the convention of H 10.

Colinear Forces.
27* Let the vertical line, w. Fig. 10 (6), represent, by any oonyenient
scale, the weight of the upper stone in Fi^. 10 (a), and W that of the lower
stone. Then, w + W, ■". G, ~ the combined length of the two lines, gives,
by the same scale, the combined weight of the two stones, and a verticu line
G, coincident with them, equal to tneir sum, and pointing upward, would
represent their antiresultuit, or the reaotioii of the ground.

!88. Similarly, if, at each panel point of the lower chord in the bridgo
truss in Fig. 12 (a), we have 2 tons dead load (weight of bridge and floor,
etc.*) axul 10 tons live load (train, vehicles, cattle, passengers, etc.), the com*
bined length of the two lines in Fig. 12 (b), L  10, and D  2, gives the tota*.
panel load of 12 tons.
29. In Fig. 11 the prenure, 5 lbs., of W upon the ground, is diminished by
the 3 lbs. upward pull of the cord, transmitted from the smaller weight i9,
leaving 2 lbs. upwara pressure to be exerted bv the ground in order to main
tun equilibrium. The upward reaction, R, of the pulley is — w + W — G
■8 + 6 — 2 * 6. This is represented graphically in Fig. 11 (c).
30. In the truss shown in Fig. 12 (a), the total dead and live load is — 6
X 12—72 tons, and half this total load, or 36 tons, rests upon each abut
ment. Hence, to preserve equilibrium, each abutment must exert an up
ward reaction of 36 tons; but, in order to ascertain how much of these 36
tons is iranamiUed through the endpott, a e, we must deduct from it the 12
tons which we assume to be originally concentrated, as dead and live load*
at the panel jpoint a; for this portion is evidently not transmitted through
a e. Accordingly, in Fig. 12 (c), we draw R upward, and equal by scale to
36 tons: and, from its upper end, draw p downward and — 12 tons. The
remainder of R, — R — p • 36 ^ 12 — 24 tons, is then the pressure trans
mitted through a e.
31* Golinear forces are called similar when they are of like sense, and
opposite when of opposite sense. The tame distinction applies to result*
ants.

33* For equilibrium, under the action of colinear forces, itia,
ci oo^irse, necessary that toe sum of the forces acting in one sense be equal to
the sum of those acting in the oppomte sense, or, in other words, that the
algebraic sum of ail the forces be zero. Thus, in Fig. 13, if the forces are in
equilibrium, the sum, b a ■{• a o, ot the two righthanded forces must be
equal to the sum, ed + dc + co, of the three lefthanded forces. Or, con
sidering the righthanded forces, b a and a o, as positive, and the lefthanded
forces, e dj d c and c o, as negative, as in ^ 10, we have, as the condition of
equilibrium of colinear forces :

*The dead load is, of course, never actually concentrated upon one chord,
as here indicated ; but It is often assumed, for convenience, that it is so
concentrated.
364 STATICS.
In other words, the algebraic sum of all the forces must be zero; or, more
briefly,
2 forces — 0,
where the Greek letter S (sigma), or sign of summation, is to be read "The
sum of — ."
33* Two equal and opposite forces, acting upon a body, are com
monly said to keep it at rest ; but, strictly speaking, they merely prevent each
other from moving the body, and thus permit it to remain at rest, so far as
they are concerned ; for they cannot keep it at rest against the action of any
third force, however slight and in whatever direction it may act; and the
body itself has no tendency to move.
34. Unequal Opposite Forces. If two opposite forces, acting upon
a body, are unequal, the smaller one, and an equal portion of the greater
one, act against each other, producing no effect Uf^n the body as a whole;
while the remainder, the resultant, moves the body in its own direction.
Concurrent Coplanar Forces. The Force Parallelogram.
35. Composition. Let the two lines, ao,bo, in any of the diagrams of
Fig. 14, represent, in magnitude, direction and sense, concurrent forces
whose lines of action meet at the point o. Then, in the parallelogram, acbo,
formed upon the lines a o^ b o, the resultant of those two forces is repre
sented, in magnitude and in direction, by that diagonal, R, which passes
through the point, o, ci concurrence. The parallelogram, a c & o, is called a

36. Resolution. Conversely, to find the components of a given force,
o c, Fig. 14, when it is resolved in any two ^ven directions, o a, o 6, draw the
lines, o a\ o b\ in those directions and of mdefinite length, and upon these
lines, with the diagonal R » o c, construct the force parallelogram a ch o»
The sides, o a, ob, of the parallelogram then represent the required compo
nents in amotmt and in direction. ^
37. Caution. The two forces, a o and b o. Fig. 14, may act either toward
or from the point o; or, in other words^ they may act either as pulls or as
pushes ; but the lines representing them m the parallelogram, and meeting at
the point, o, must be drawn, either both as pushes or both as pulls; and the
resultant, R, as represented by the diagonal of the pandlelogram, will be a
pull or a push, according as the two forces are represented as pulls or as
pushes.
38. Thus, in Fig. 15 (^a), the inclined endpost of the truss pushes obliouely
downward toward o, with a force represented by a' o, while the lower chord
pulls away from o, toward the ri^ht, with a force represented by o V, If,
now, we were to construct, in Fig. 15 (a), the parallelogram o a' cf V^ we
should obtain the diagonal o cf or c' o, which does not represent the true re
sultant. In fact, as one of the two forces acts toward, and the other from,
the point, o, we could not tell (even if R' were the direction of the resultant)
in which sense its arrow should point.
We must first either suppose the push, a' o, in the endpost, toward o,^ to be
carried on beyond o, so as to act as a pull, o a. Fig. 16 (o) (of course, in the
same direction and sense as before), thus treating both forces as pulls; or
FOBCE PABALIiELOOKAH.
366
rise we must similarly suppose the pull, o V, in the chord, to be transformed
into the push, 6 o, of Fig. 15 (c), thus treating both forces as pushes. In
either case we obtain the true resultant, R ( » a' 5', Fig. 15a), which, in this
ease, represents the vertical downward pressure of the end of the truss upon
the abutment.
FtfT IS
Caution. The tensile force, exerted at the end of a flexible tie, neces
sarily acts in the line of the tie; but, in general, the pressure, exerted at
the end of a strut, acts in the line of the axis of the strut only when all
the forces producing it are applied at the other end of the strut. Thus,
in Fig. 15 id), the components, R and H, of the weight, W, do not coin
cide with the axis of the beam which supports the Toad; but in Fig. 15
(e), where the weight acts at the intersection of the two struts, its com
ponents, R and H, do coincide with the axes of the struts. See idso Figs.
143 and 145 (b).
39. Demonstration. The rational demonstration of the principle of
the force parallelogram is given in treatises on Mechanics. (See Bioliog
raphy.) It may be established experimentally as indicated in Fig. 16,
where c o represents by scale the pull shown by the spring balance C, while
o a and o h represent those shown by A and B respectively.
40. Equations for Components and Resultant. Given the
amounts of the forces, a and c, or of the resultant, R, and the angles formed
between them. Fig. 17 (a), we have'*':

representing the components be drawn in accordance with Iff 37 and 38,
and if a straight line, m n or m' n', be drawn through the point, o. of concur
rence, in such a way that both forces are on one side of that line, then the line
representing the resultant will be found upon the same side of that line with
the components, and between them ; and it will act toward the line, m n or
tn* n'r ii the components act toward it, and vice versa. The resultant is
necessarily in the same plane with its two components.

42* If one of the components is colinear with the force, it is the force itself,
and the other component is zero. In other words, a force cannot be resolved
into two noncolinear components, one of which is^n the line of action of the
force. Thus the rope, o e. Fig. 19, may receive assistance from tu}o ad
ditional ropes, pulling in the directions a c, and c b; for the resultant of their
pulls may coincide with o c; but, so long as o c remains vertical, no aingU
force, as c a or c b, can relieve it, imless acting in its own direction c o.
43. In Fig. 20, the load, P, placed at C, ia suspended entirely by the verti
cal member B C, and exerts directly no pull along the horizontal member,
C £. Neither does a puU in the latter exert any eneot upon the force acting
in B C, so long as B C remains vertical. But the tension in B C, acting
at B, does exert a thrust o a along B D, although that member is at right
angles to B C; for B G meets there also the inclined member A B; and
the tension o d \3 thus resolved into o a and o 6, along B D and B A
respectively. The horizontal thrust, o a, in B D, is really the antiresultant
of the horizontal comp>onent, db, of the oblique thrust in the endpoet B A,
at its head, B, which thrust is — the pull in A £, due to P.

44. In Fig. 21, the tension, o e, in the inclined tie, D G, is resolved, at D,
into o a and o b, acting at right angles to each other along D F and D £ re
spectively.
45. A resultant may be either greater or less than either one of its two
oblique components, but it is always less than their sum. If the components
are equal, and if the angle between them » 120^, the resultant is eaueii to one
of them. Therefore the same weight which would break a single vertical
rope or post, would break two such ropes or posts, each inclined 60° to the
vertical.

The Force Triangle.
46. The Force Triangle. Inasmuch as the two triangles, into which a
paralldogram is divided by its diagonal, are similar and equal. It is suffi
cient to cu^w either one of these triangles, aoc or h oc. Figs. 14, 16, 18, in
stead of the entire parallelogram.
47. If three concurrent coplanar forces are in equilibrium, the lines repH
resenting them form a triangle; and the arrows, indicating their senses,
foUow each other around the triangle. Thus, in Fi^. 22 (a), we have, acting
at o and balancing each other there, three forces: vu., (1) the vertical down
ward force o c of the weight, acting as a pull through the rope o c, (2) the
horizontal thrust a o through the oeam a o, and (3) the upward inclined
thrust 6 of the strut o b, all acting in the senses (o c,ao,b o) in which the
letters are taken, and as indicated by the arrows.
48. Each of the forces in Fig. 22 (&) and (c) is th6 antiresultant of the
other two in the same triangle ; and, if its sense be reversed, it becomes their
resultant. Thus, o c, Fisj. 22 (b), is the antiresultant, and c o the resultant,
ofea and a o; and o c. Fig. 22 (c), is the antiresultant, and c o the resultant
of e & and bo,cb being parallel to a o. Fig (b), and representing the thruflt
exerted by the horizontal beam against the joint o, Fig. (a).*

22 (a), show the erroneous resultant (a b) obtained if the lines are drawn
with their arrows pointing both toward or both from the meetingpoint of the
lines. See ^1f 37, 38. A comparison of any force parallelogram, as that
in Fig. 18, with either of the two force triangles composing it, will show
that this, while apparently contradicting Ht 37 and 38, is merely another
statement of the same fact. The apparent contradiction is due to the
fact that, in the force triangle, the lines representing the forces do not
meet at the point, o, of concurrence of the forces.'

STATICS.
40. Converselsr, if the three sides of a trian^e be taken as representing,
in direction and in amount, three concurrent forces whose senses are such
that arrows, representing them and affixed to their respective sides in the
triangle, follow each other around it, then those forces are in equilibrium.
50. The three forcest Fig. 23, are proportional, respectively, to the
sines of their opposite angles. Thus:
Force a : force b : force e
— Sin A : sin B : sin C. Fly. 2S.
51* Example. In Fig. 24, the half arch and its spandrel, acting as a
nngle rigid bodv, are assumed to be held in equilibrium by their combined
weight, W, the horizontal pressure h at the crown, and the reaction R of the
skewback, which is assumed to act through the center of the skewback. In
the force triangle c « t, e «, acting through the center of gravity of the half
arch and spandrel, represents the known weight W, and 8 t ia drawn hori
sontal, or parallel to h . From c, where h, produced, meets the line of ac
tion of W, draw c t through the center of the skewback. Then • t and e I
give us the amounts of h and R respectively.

52. Example. Let Fig. 25 represent a roof truss, resting upon its abut
ments and carrying three loads, as shown by the arrows. Draw a R ver
tically, to represent the proportion of the loads carried by the left abut
ment, a, or, which is the same thing, the vertical upward reaction of that
abutment. Then, drawing R c, parallel to the chord member, a <2, to inter
sect a 6 in c, we have, for the stresses in a e and a d, due to the three loads:

sultant c; a sinffle force, as o c. may be resolved into two or more concur
rent components in any desired directions. In other words, there is an
infinite number of possible systems of concurrent forces which have o c for
their resultant.

54. ResoluteSt or Rectangular Components. A very common case
of resolution of forces is that where a force, as the pressure, c n, of the post,
fig. 27, is to be resolved into components at rieht angles to each other, as are
the vertical and horizontal components c t and tn in Fig. 27 (a). Two such
components, taken together, are called the resolutes or rectangular compo
nents of ibjb force. The joint, o d, in Fig. 27 (a), is properly placed at right
angles to e n; but the joint c ib. Fig. 27 (5), provides also against accidental
changes in the direction of c n. In Fig. 27 (6), the surfaces, c i and i b, are
preferably {proportioned as the components, c i and t ih Fig. 27 (a), respec
tively, by simUarity of triangles, ctb, ctn^
Tig. 27.
Fl«r. 28.
55* Example. In bridge and roof trusses it is often required to find the
vertical and horizontal resolutes of the stress in an inclined member, or to
find the stress brought ui>on an inclined member by a given vertical or hori
zontal stress applied at one of its ends, in conjunction with another stress
(whose amount may or may not be given) at right angles to it.
Thus, in Fig. 28, the tension C p in the diagonal C d is resolved into a com
pression e p along the upper chord member CD* and a compression C e in the
• post Cc.*^ Addmg to C c the load at c, and representing their sum by / c, we
nave tension f g in chord member e d, and tension c g in the diagonal B c.
Making B A = c g,we have i A, compression in B C, and B j, compression in
the endpost or batter poet B A. But the load at b also sends to B, through
the hip vertical B 6, a load (tension) equal to itself. Representing this by
B ;fc, we have ( A; as its component along the chord member B O, and B I as its
oom]M)nent along the endpost B A. Now, making A *» = the sum of B;
and B /, we find the vertical resolute A » = so much of the vertical reaction
of the abutment as is due to the three loads only, and the horizontal resolute
mn '^ the corresponding stress in the chord member, A c.

Flff. 80.
56. Example. Inclined Plane. Again, in Fig. 29, let it be required
to find the two resolutes of P (the weight of the ball) respectively parallel and
perpendicular to the inclined plane. The former is the tendency of the ball
to move down the plane, and is called the tangential component. The
^'Ilie stress^ thus found is not necessarily the total stress in the member.
The compression in C c (neglecting its own weight and that of the top chord)
fe due entirely to the tension C p in C <i, acting at its top, and hence C e rep
tmenta the total compression in C c; but e p ia only a portion of the com
pression sustained by C D ; for B C also contributes its share toward this.

and, since the angle eoa between the vertical o e and the normal component
o a is equal to the angle A of inclination between the plane g m and the hori
sontal a n, we have :
Normal component, o a » P . cos A.
Tangential component, a c » P . sin A.
60. When a force is resolved into rectangular components, as in Figs. 29
and 30, each of these components represents the total effort or tendency which
that force alone ean exert in that direction.
FI9. 81.
Thus, in Fig. 31, the utmost force which the weight o e alone can exert
perpendicularly againat tke plane is that represented by the component o a.
iVue, if, in order to prevent the bo<ly from sliding down the plane, we apply
a force in some other direction, such as the horisontal one, h o, instead of the
tangential one h o, and find the components of o c in the directions h o and o a,
weuiall find the normal component o d greater than before; but the increase
a d is due entirely to the normal component, h fr, of the horisontal force h o.
Thus, the only effect upon the body o, and upon the plane, of substituting
h o for b o, is to add the normal component, h 2>, of the former, to that (o a)
doe.
Stress Components.
61. Stress Components. In Fig. 32, let a o and & o be any two forces,
and c o their resultant. From a and 6 draw a a' and h 6' at right angles to
the diagonal o c of the force parallelogram a o b c^ and construct the sub>
parallelograms (rectangles), oa' a a" and oVh If'. Each of the original com
ponents, o a, o h, is thus resolved into two subcomponents, perpendicular to
each other, one of which is perpendicular also to the resultant, o c, while the
other coincides with o c in position and in sense. Now, perpendiculars, let
fall from the opposite angles of a paralldogram upon its diagonal, are equaL

Bence the two colinear forces, o a'\ and o 6", acting upon the body at o, are
equal and opposite (although the lines, a' a and h' 6, representing them, are
not opposite). Hence also they are in equilibrium, and their only effect
upon the body is a stress of compression in Fig. 32 (a), and of tension
in Fig. 32 (6). They may therefore be called the stress components. The
other two subcomponents (o a' of o a, and o 5' of o h) combine to form the
resultant o e, which is equal to their sum, and which tends to move the body
in its own dir&ction.
372
STATICS.
62. The two great forces, o a, ob, in Fig. 33 (6) have the same reeultant,
oc, = o c', as the two small forces, o a' o b\ in Fig. 33 (a), although their
stress components, a" a, = V b, are much greater.
63. It often happens that one of the components is itself normal to the
resultant. Thus, in Fig. 22, where o c is vertical, its component, o a, is hori
zontal, and the perpendicular, let fall from a upon o c, represents its hori
zontal anticomponent, a o. Here the horizontal and the inclined beam
sustain equal horizontal pressures; but the vertical pressure, o c, "^ the
weight, W, is borne entirely by the inclined beam.
Flip. 33.
Flip. 34.
64. When, as in Fig. 34, the resultant, o c, forms, with one of the original
components, o a and o b, an angle, aoc, greater than 90^, the perpendicularB,
a a', b 6', from a and &, must be let fall upon the line of the resiiltant produced.
Here, however, as before, the two equal and opposite subcomponents, o a"
and o b"j are in equilibrium at o, while the other two subcomponents, o b* and
o a', go to make up the resultant o c; which, however (since o 6' and o a* here
act in oppottte senses) is equal to their difference, and not to their sum, as in
Fig. 32.
Fig. 34 shows that a dowrvward force, o e, may be so resolved that one of its
components is an upward force, o a, greater than the original downward force,
and that the pressure, o 6, has a component, o b* or V &, parallel to o c, and
greater than o c itself; for b" b — o 6' '^ o c \ cV.
Applied and Imparted Forces.
65. Applied and Imparted Forces* In Fig. 29, the ball is free to
roll down the inclined plane. Hence, although the entire weight P of the
ball is applied to the body g mn, only the normal component o a is imparted
to it or exerts any pressure upon it, and this pressure is in tlie direction o a.
But in Fig. 30, the body g mn ceeeives and resists not only the normal
component o a, but also (by means of the stop «) the tanaential component
o b; and the entire force P, or o c, is thus imparted to the body g mn, pres»
ing it in the direction o c.
Comiposition and Kesolution of Concurrent Forces by Means
of Coordinates.
66. In Fig. 35 (a) let the three coplanar forces E, F and G act through
the point x. Draw two lines, H H, and V V, Fig. 35 (b), crossing each
other at right angles, as at o.* These lines are called rectangular coordin
ates. From o, draw lines E o, F o, G o, parallel to E a:, F x, (jrx, Fig. 35 (o),
and equal respectively to the forces E, F, and G by any convenient scale. Re
solve each of these forces, Fig. 35 (6), into two components, parallel to H H
and V V respectively. Thus, E o is resolved into t o and n o, F o into u o
and e o, G o into i o and m o. Then, summing up the resolutes, we have:
Sum of horizontal resolutes = u o — io — to — — so, and
Sum of vertical resolutes ==
no + e o — m,o
— ao,
ao;
*It is only for convenience that the coordinates are usually drawn (as in
Fig. 35) at right angles. They may be drawn at any other angle (see Fig.
36) ; but. in any case, the forces must of course be resolved into components
EaraUel to the coordinaUa, whatever the directions of those coordinatee may
e.
COMPOSITION AND RESOLUTION.
373
and — 9 and a o are the resolutes of the resultant, R, of the three forces, E,
F and G.
67. When a system of (concurrent) forces is in equilibrium, the algebraic*
sum of the components of all the forces, along either of the two coordinates,
is zero. Thus, in Fig. 35 (6) or 36, if the sense of R be such that it shall act as
the antiresultant of the other three forces E, F and G, its component, o « or
o a, along either coordinate, will be found to balance those of the other
forces along the same coordinate.
Flff. 35.
Henoe we have the very important proposition that : When a system of
ooncurrent coplanar forces is in equilibrium, the algebraic sums of their com
ponents, in any two directions, are each equal to zero.
Fig:. S6.
68. Conversely, in a system of concurrent forces, if the algebraic sums of
the components in any two directions are each jequal to zero, the forces are
in equilibrium.
If the sum of the components in one of anv two directions is not equal to
zero, the forces cannot be in equilibrium. Thus, in Fig. 35 (6) or 36 (b), the
sum of the components, along either one (as VV) of the two coordinates,
may be zero; and yet, if the sum of those along the other coordinate is
not zero, their resultant, or algebraic sum, will move the body, on which
they act, in the direction of that resultant.
♦The components being taken as + or — , according to the sense of each.
374
STATICS.
69. With Tertical and horizontal coordinates, the condition of
equilibrium* becomes:
. The sum of the horizontal resolutes must be equal to zero ;
The sum of the vertical resolutes must be equal to sero;
or, more briefly:
2 horizontal resolutes ■
2 vertical resolutes ■»
Conversely, if these conditions are fulfilled, the forces are in equilibrium.

70. Resultant of More than Two Coplanar Forces. Where it
is required to find the resultant of more than two concurrent and coplanar
forces, as in Fig. 37, we may first find the resultant Ri of any two of them,
as of P] and Ps; then the resultant, R^, of Ri and a third force, as Pa; and so
on, until we finally obtain the resultant R of all the forces. This resultant is
evidently concurrent and coplanar with the given forces.
71. It is quite immaterial in what order the forces are taken.
Thus, we may, as in Fig. 38, first combine Pi and Ps; then their resultant Ri
with Ps, obtaining R2; and, finally, R^ with P4, obtaining R;or, as in Fig. 39,
we may first combine any two of the forces, as Pi and Ps, obtaining their
resultant Ri ; then proceed to any other two forces, as Ps and P4, and obtain
their resultant R^; and finally combine the two resultants, Ri and R^, ob
taining the resultant R.
The Force Polygon.
73. The Force Polygon. Comparing Figs. 37 and 38 with Figs. 40
and 41, respectively, we see that we may arrive at the same resultant R by
simply drawing, as in Fig. 41, lines representing the several forces in any
order, but following each other according to their senses. It will be noticed
that this is merely an abbreviation of the process of drawing the several force
parallelograms.
73. Resultant and Antiresultant. The line, — R, required to com
plete the polygon, represents the an<iresultant of the other forces if its sense
IS such that it follows them around the polygon, as in Fig. 40. If its sense is
opposed to theirs, as in Fig. 41, it is their reavUant, R.
74. In other words, if any number of concurrent forces, as Pj, Pj, Pj, P*
and R, Figs. 37 and 38, f are in equilibrium, the lines representing them, if
drawn in any order, but so that tneir senses follow each other, will form a
closed F>olygon, as in Fig. 40 (or in Fig. 41 if the sense of R be reversed).
75. Conversely, if the lines representing any system of concurrent
coplanar forces, when drawn with their senses following each other, form a
closed polygon, as in Fig. 40, those forces are in equilibrium.
*With nonconcurrent forces, another condition must be satisfied. See ^ 83.
tR is here regarded as tending upward, so as to form the anftresultant of
the other forces.
FORCE POLYGON.
375
It will be noticed that the force triangle, and the straight line representing
a system of colinear forces, Figs. 10 and 11. Hlf 20, etc., or a system of
parallel forces, Figs. 55, etc., tf 111, etc., are merely special cases of the
force polygon.
76. In a force polygon. Fig. 42, any one of the forces is the antiresultant
of all the rest. Any two or more of the forces balance all the rest ; or, their
resultant is the antiresultant of all the rest.
If a line a c or 6 d, Fig. 42, be drawn, connecting any two comers of a force

polygon, that line represents the resultant, or the antiresultant (according i
its arrow is drawn) of all the forces on either side of it. Thus :

77* Knowing the directions of all the forces of a system, as Pi P5,
Fig. 42, and the am&unta of all but two of them, as Ps and P3, we may find the
amounts of those two by first drawing the others, P4, Ps and Pi, as in the
figure. Then two lines b c and c d, drawn in the directions of the other two
and dosing the polygon, will necessarily give their amounts.

equivalent to o c. Thus :oe''oabc'^ode^onpc''ohkmc =

Nonconcuirent Coplanar Forces.

and P3; and then, by combining Ri with the remaining force Pi, we find the
resultant R of the three forces. Here the line R represents the resultant, not
only in amount and in direction, but also in position. That ls, the line of
action of the resultant coincides with R.
80. The resultant R is the same, in amount and in direction, as if the
forces were concurrent, and its position is the same as it would have been if
their point of concurrence were m the line of R. If there are more than three
forces, we proceed in the same waj'.
81. Conversely, the resultant R, or any other force, may be resolved
into a system of any number of concurrent or nonconcurrent coplanar forces,
in any direction^, at pleasure. Thus, we may first resolve R into Pi and Ri;
then either of these into two other forces, as Ri into P2 and P3, and so on.
83. If a system of nonconcurrent coplanar forces is in equilibrium, the
forces will still be in equilibrium if they are so placed as to be concurrent;
provided, of course, that their directions, senses and amounts remain un
changed ; but it does not follow that a system of forces, whicl> is in equilib
rium when concurrent, will remain in equilibrium when so placed as to be
nonconcurrent.
Thus, the five forces, Pt Pr„ Fig. 45 (a), may be so placed, as in Fig.
45 (6), that the resultant a c, of Pi and Pa, does not coincide with the re
sultant c a of P3, P4 and Ps. but is panUlel to it. These two resultants then
form a couple. (See tlf 155, etc.)

do not suffice for nonconcurrent forces, and a third condition must be added,
viz. : —
2 moments « 0;
t. e., the moments of the forces, taken about any point, must be in equilib
rium.
A system of forces in equilibrium has no resultant ; hence it has no moment
about any point. In other words, the moments of the forces, as well as the
forces themselves, are in equilibrium.
84. The resultant of a system of unbalanced nonconcuireiit
forces, acting upon a body, may be either
(1) a single force, acting through the center of gravity of the body; or
(2) a couple; t. e., two equal and parallel forces of opposite sense (see
m 155, etc.) ; or
(3) either (a) a single force, acting through the center of gravity of the
body, and a couple ; or (b) a single forca acting elsewhera th»r throu^k ( he
center of gravity of the body.
^ In Case (3), the two alternative resultants are interchangeable; t. e.. a
single force, acting elsewhere than through the center of gravity of the body,
may always be replaced by an equivalent combination consisting of an eqijuu

parallel force*, acting through the center of gravity of the body, and a couple,
and vice versa. See HI 161', etc.
The resultant gives to the body, in Case (1), motion of translation in a
straight line, without rotation; in Case (2), rotation without translation;
and m Case (3), both translation and rotation. See footnote (*), t !•
85. The force polygon, ^ 72, Figs. 40, etc., and the method by co
ordinates. H 66, Fig. 35, therefore, give us only the amount, direction and
sense of the resultant of nonooncurrent forces, and not its position. To find
the position of the resultant of nonconcurrent forces, we may have recourse
to a figure, like Fig. 44. where the forces are represented ib their actual posi
tions, or to the cord polygon, H1[ 86, etc., Fig. 46.
The Cord Polygon.
86. In the force triangle any two of the three lines may be regarded as
representing, by their directions, the positions of two members (two struts
or two ties, or one strut and one tie) of indefinite length, resisting the third
force ; while their lengths give the amounts of the forces which those mem
bers must exert in oTaer to maintain equilibrium.
FlfT* 20 (repeatefl).
87. Thus, in Fig. 26 (6), are shown four different systems, of two mem
bers each, inclined respectively like the forces c h and b o in Fig. 26 (a) and
balancing the third force o c. The stresses in these two members are given
by the lengths of the lines e b and b o in Fig. 26 (a).
Tlie members acting as struts are represented, in Fig. 20 (b), as abutting
against flat surfaces, while those acting as ties are represented as attached
to hooks, against which they pull.
In Fig. 26 (c) and (d) are indicated systems of members, inclined like the
forces c a' and a' o, ca and a o, respectively, of Fig. 26 (a), by which the third
force o c might be supported.
88. In the force polygon abed ea. Fig. 46 (6), representing the four
forces, Pi, Ps, P3, Pj, of Fig. 46 (a), if we select, at pleasiue, any point o
(called the pole) and draw from it a series of straight lines oa,ob, etc. (called
mys), radiatinff to the ends, a, b, c, etc., of the lines Pi, Ps, etc., representing
the forces, we snatl form a series of force triangles, aobthoc, etc.
Thus, in the triangle d b o we have the force Pi, or a b, balanced by the two
forces o a and b o; m the triangle b c o, the force P2, or b c, balanced by the
two forces o b and c o; and so on.
89. The Cord Polygon. If, now, in Fig. 46 (a), we draw the lines a
and b, parallel respectively to the rays o a and o b of Fig. 46 (b) and meeting
in the une representing the force Pi, they will represent the positions of two
tension members of indefinite length, which will balance the force Pi by ex
erting forces represented, in amount as well as in direction, by the rayS a
and b o, Fi^. 46 (b). Again, taking pol? o'. Fig. 46 (b), instead of o, we have
a' and b*. Fig. 46 (aO, parallel respectively to the rays, o' a and 0' b, and rep
resenting a pair of struts performing the same duty.
90. Similarly, the lines b and e. Fig. 46 (a), parallel respectively to rays o h
and o c, represent two tension members, which, with stresses equal respec
tively to o b and c 0, Fig. 46 (b), balance the force Pg.
378
STATICS.
01. We thus obtain, finally, a system of five tension members, ab e de.
Fig. 46 (a), which, if properly fastened at the ends a and e respectively, will^
by exerting forces represented respectively by the rays, o a, ob, oc, etc.. Fig.
46 (6), balance the four given forces Pi, P{, Ps and P4.
92. The figure abode. Fig. 46 (a), is called a cord polygon, funicular
polygon, or equilibrium polygon.
03. Resultant, Antiresultant. Amount and Direction. In the
force polygon, Fig. 46 (6) or (d), the line e a, joining the end of the last force
line d e with the beginning of the first one a b, represents the antiresultant of
the given system of four forces, and a e their resultant. Evidently, there
fore, the rays^ a o and o e, which represent two components of a e, represent
also, in direction and in amount, two forces which would balance e a, or which
would be equivalent to the given system of (four) forces.
Flffs. 46 (a), (a') and (fr).
04. Position of Resultant. Hence, in the cord >olygon. Fig. 46 (a)^
the intersection, i, of the cords a and e, parallel respectiv^y to the rays o a
and e o, is a point in the line of action of the resultant R; and. if we imasine
a i and e i to be rigid rods, and apply, at t, a force, — R, equal and parallel to
a e, but of opposite sense, that force will be the antiresultant of the (four)
given forces, and we shall have a framework be di of cords and rods, kept in
equilibrium by the action of the five forces, Pi, Pg, Pg, P4 and — R.
06. By choosing other positions of the pole, as o\ Fig. 46 (fi), or by differ*
ently arranging the given forces, as in Fig. 46 (c), we merely change the
shape of the cord polygon, and (in some cases) reverse the sense of the
stresses in the members. Thus, in Fig. 46 (a), all the stresses are tensions, or
pulls : while in Fig. 46 (c) a, b, d and e are tensions or pulls, and c is a com
pression or push.
06. In constructing the cord polygon, Fig. 46 (a), (aO. (c), and (e), car*
must be taken to draw the cords m their proper places ; and for this it is neo
essary to remember, simply, that the two rays pertaining to any particular
force line in the force polygon. Fig. 46 (6), represent those members which,
in the cord polygon. Fig. 46 (a), take the components of that force.
CORD POLYGON.
379
Thus, o a and h o» Fig. 46 (6), pertain to the force Pi ; o b and e o to the
force Pj. Hence, in Fig. 46 (a") or {c) we draw a and h (parallel respectively
to o a and 6 o) meeting in the line of action of Pi : h and c (parallel respect
ively to o 6 and c o) meeting in the line of action of Ps, etc., etc.
97. Each ray in the force polygon. Fig. 46 (6), including the outside ones,
is thus seen to pertain to two force?, and each force has two rays. The two
oords,^ parallel respectively to the two rays of any force, must be drawn to
meet in the line of^aetion of that force; and each cord must join the lines of
action of the two forces to which its parallel ray pertains. The lines, a, &, c.
etc., in the cord polygon. Fig. 46 (a) and (c), give merely the incLinatwM oi
members which, as there arran^d, would sustain the given forces. ' The
lengths of these lines have nothing to do with the amounts of the stretaes.
These are given by the lengths of the corresponding raya in the force polygon,
Fig. 46 (6).
Flffs. 46 (o), {d) and («).
08« If the antiresultant force, — R, is not applied, the cords a and e may
be supposed fastened to firm supports, against which they exert stresses rep
resented, in amount and in direction, by the rays a o and o e respectively.
But the resistances of those two supports are plainly equal and opposite to
those stresses, or equal to o a and e o respectively. Hence, their resultant is
the antiresultant, — R, of the foiu> origmal forces.
99* If, Fig. 46 («), the two end members a and e were attached merely to
two ties, V and V, parallel to the antiresultant, — R, they would evidently
draw the ends of those ties inward toward each other. To prevent this, let
the strut k be inserted, making it of such length that the ties V and V may
remain parallel to — R, and draw o k, Fig. 46 (6), parallel to k. Then a k
and k e give the stresses in V and V respectively.
ipO. If the antiresultant, — R, found by means of the force pply^n, be
applied in a line passing through the intersection of the outer (initial and
final) members in the cord polvgon, all the forces, includinff of course the
aatiresuliant, will be in equilibrium. In other words, coplanar forces are
in equilibrium if they may be so drawn as to form a dosed force polygon, and
if a closed cord polygon may be drawn between them. But if the antire
soltant be applied elsewhere, we shall have a couple, composed of the anti
rwnltant, — K, and the resultant R of the forces.

Nonconcurrent Noncoplanar Forces.
lOG. Nonconcurrent Noncoplanar Forces. Fig. 50 (a). (For par

tangular components, one normal to an assumed plane, the other coin
ciding with the plane.* Find the resultant of the (coplanar) components
coinciding with the plane, by methods already given, and that of the normal
(parallel) components, by 1ft 110, etc. If these two resultants are coplanar,
tney are also concurrent, and their resultant (which is the resultant of the
system) is readily found.
107. If not, let V, Fig. 50 (6), be the resultant normal to the plane, and H
the resultant lying in tl^e plane. By If 162, substitute, for H, the eqtial and
parallel force H', meeting V at O, and the couple H . O a, and find the result
ant, R', of V and H'. The system of forces is thus reduced to the single force
R' and the couple H . O a. For Couples, see If 155.
108. Moments of Noncoplanar Forces. Th<% action of the weight
W of the wall. Fig. 51 (a), and of the noncoplanar forces Pi and Pe, may be
represented as in Fig. 51 (&), where the axle a* cf represents the edge a c
about which the wall tends to turn, while the bars or levers represent the
leverages of the forces. So far as regards the overturning stability of the
wall, regarded as a rigid body and as capable of turning only about the edge
a e, it is immaterial whether an extraneous force, as Pi, is applied at p or at
g; but it is plainly not immaterial as regards a tendency to swing the wall
around horizontally, or to fracture it; or as regards pressures (and conse
quent friction) between the axle a' <f and its bearings. For equilibrium. Pi vik

and the presBures of its ends in the bearings are more or less modified ; bui,
so far as merely the equilibrium of the moments is oonoerned, we may sup
pose all of the forces and their moments to be shifted into one and the same
plane, as in Fig. 51 (c).
109* In oases like that represented in Fig. 51, it is usual, for convenience,
to restrict ourselves to a supposed vertical alice, «, 1 foot thick, and to the
forces acting upon such slice ; supposing the weight of the slice to be concen
trated at its center of cavity, and the extraneous forces to be applied in the
same vertical plane with gravity. In eflfect, we are then dealing with a
slice indefinitely thin, but luiving the weight of the 1ft. slice.

PARALLEL FORCES.
110. The resultant of any number of parallel forces, whether
they are in the same plane or not, and whether in the same direction or not,
is parallel to them and — their algebraic sum.
Coplanar Parallel Forces.
111. The resultant of any number of coplanar parallel forces
is in the same plane with them, whether the forces are of the same or
of opposite sense; and the leverages, or arms, of such forces, and of their
resultant, about any given point in the same plane, are in one straight line.
Thus, in Fig. 56 (a), where the five forces, a, b, c, d and e are in one plane, their
resultant, R, is in that same plane; and tne levera^ of the forces, and
of R, about any point, as 6 or v, in the same plane, are in the straight line R v.
Fig. 02.
113. The resultant, R, or antiresultant, Q, Fig. 52, of two parallel
forces, a and b, intersects any straight line, u v, joining the directions of
the two forces. Hence, if three parallel forces are in equilibrium, they ara
m the same plane. In Fig. 62 (a), the two forces, o and 6, are of like
sense. R is then between a and b, and R = 6 H a. In Fig. 52 (6), a and
b are of opposite sense. R is then not between a and 6, and R — fr — a.

113* To find the position of the resultant, draw and measure any straight
line* u V, joininjs the lines of action of the forces. It is immaterieil whether
u « is perpendicular to said directions, or not. The line representing the
resultant cuts u v, and its position is found thus:
M i — tt « X p ; and v i = u v X ^.

114. This may be conveniently done by making u v equal, by any conve
nient scale, to the sum of the forces, as in Fig. 53, where uv^ 42. Then
make u i equal, by the same scale, to the force at v,oxvi equal to the force at
u. Then a line, R, Fig. 52 (a), drawn through t parallel to a and h, gives the
position and direction of their resultant ; and its amount is equal to the sum
of a and h; or R = a + 6. In other words, if a force, Q, parallel to a and 6,
and equal to their sum, but of opposite sense, be applied to the body any
where in a line passing through i, it will balance a and 6, or will be their anti

131. In Fig. 59 (a) we have shown the forces, a and c, acting upon surfaces
raised above the general plane, merely in order to illustrate the fact that it is
not at all necessary that the forces be supposed to act upon or against a plane
surface.
122. Although Fig. 59 (o) illustrates the method of finding the resultant
of noncoplanar parallel forces, yet it plainly does not give the actual relative
positions of the forces and their resultant * because it is necessarily drawn in a
jcind of perspective, and therefore all the parts cannot be measured by a
scale. The true relative positions may of course be represented in plan, as
by the five stars, a, ft, c, % and k, Fig. 59 (6), corresponding to the points where

the forces and resultants intersect some one chosen plane. But it is now
impossible to represent the forces themselves by lines. They must there
fore be stated in figures, as is here done. It is then easy to find the positions
of the resultants, as before.
1^. If there are also forces acting: In the opposite dfrection, as
d and e. Fig. 59 (a), find their resultant separately. We thus obtain, finally,
two resultants of opposite sense. These resultants may be equal or unequal,
and colinear or noncolinear. If they are noncolinear, see ^ 84, and Couples,

a, b and c, so R', R'', are projections of the resultant, R, of the forces. The

CENTER OF GRAVITY.
195. If a body. Fig. 1,* or a system of bodies. Fig. 2, be held successively
in different positions, (a), b), etc., the resultant of the parallel forces of grav
ity, acting upon its particles and indicated by the arrows m the figures, will
occupy different positions, relatively to the figure of the body or system.
That point, where all these positions, or lines of gravity, meet, is called the
center of gravity of the body or system. Thus, if a homogeneous cylinder
be stood vertically upon either end, the line of gravity will coincide with
the axis of the cylinder; but if the cylinder be then laid upon its side, the
line of gravity will intersect the axis at right angles ana will bisect it.
Hence, in the cylinder, the center of gravity is at the center of the axis.
126. About the center of gravity the moments of all the forces of mivity
are in equilibrium, in whatever pK)sition the body or system may be. Hence,
the body, or system, if suspended by this point, and acted upon by gravity
alone, will balance itself; t. e., if at rest it will remain at rest;^ or, if set ib
motion revolving about its center of ^avity, and then left to itself, it wilt
continue to revolve about that center indefinitely and with uniform anfculaf
velocity. Or, if suspended freely from any point, it will oscillate until the
center of gravity comes to rest vertically under such point.
* Figs. 1 to 45, relating to Center of Gravity, are numbered independently
of the rest of the series oi figures relating to Statics.
CENTER OF GRAVITY.
387
127* In some bodies, such as the cube, or other parallelopiped, the sphere,
etc., the center of gravity is also the center of the v>eigfU of the body; but
very frequently this is not the case. Thus, in a body a b. Fig. 2, with its
center of gravity at G, there is more weight on the side a G, than on the side
G6.

Stablet Unstable, and Indifferent Equlllbrluni.
128* A body is said to be in stable equilibrium when, as in the pendulum,
it is so suspended that, if swung a little to either side, it tends to oscillate
until it comes to rest again, with its center of gravity vertically under the
point of su8f>en8ion.
129» It is said to be in unstable equilibrium when, as in the case of an
efx, stood upon its point, it is so supported that, if swung a little to either
side, and left to itself, it swings farther out from the vertical and eventually
falls.
130. It is said to be in indifferent equilibrium when, as in the case of a
grindstone, supported by its horizontal axis, or of a sphere resting upon a
horizontal table, it is so suspended or supported that, if made to rotate about
ita center of gravity and then left to itself, it will continue in that state ol rest
or of angpilar motion in which it is left.

General Rules,
131. The following general rules (I) to (6), form the basis of the special
rules, (7) to (39).
In speaking of the center of gravity of one or more bodies, we shall assume,
for simplicity, that they are homogeneous (i. e., of uniform density through
out) and of the same density with each other. The center of gravity is then
the same as the center of volume, and we may use the volumes of the bodies
(as in cubic feet, etc.) in the rules, instead of their weigfda (as in pounds, etc.).
In applying these general rules to surfaces, use the area^ of the surfaces,
and' in applymg them to lines, use the lengths of the lines, in place of the
weights or volumes of the bodies.
In all of the rules and figures, pp. 388 to 398, G represents the center of
gravity, except where otherwise stated.

(3)* In many cases, a slnffle eomplex bodjr may be supposed to be diylded
into parts whose several centers of gravity can be readily fonnd. Then the
center of gravity of the whole may be found by the foregoing and following
rules. Thus, in Fig. 6, we may find separately the centers of gravity of the
two parallelopipeds and of the cylinder between them (each in the center of
its respective portion of the whole solid) ; and in Fig. 6 the centers of gravity
of the square prism and the square pyramid (the latter by rule (36),
and then, knowing in either case the weightis of the several parts, find their
common center oi gravity as directed in rules (1) and (2).

9t ?/ ^9 upon the awrface of the figure. In the real solid (supposed to be <»
uniform tniokness) they would of course be in the middle oi its thickness
and immediately under the positions shown in the figure.
(•). In any line, figure or body, or iaany system of lines, figuresorbodie8,any
Slane passing through the center of gravitv is called a " puuse «f §;r»vlt]r ^
>r said line, etc., or system of lines, ete. The intersection of two such planes
of gravity is called a '< line ot ^pcmrvU^** The center of gravity is (Ist) the
intersection of two lines of gravity; (2nd) the intersection of three planes
of gravity, or (3rd) the intersection of a plane of gravity with a line, of gravity
not lying m sMd plane.
If a figure or body has an axis or plane of swn&aaetrjr {i. a., a Mne or plane
dividing it into two equal and similar portions) said axis or plane ia a line of
place of gravity. If a figure or body has a central point, said point is the
center of gravity.
In Fig. 1, the string represents a line of gravity; and any piano with
which the string coincides Is a plane of gravity. Thus Qt may often be con
veniently found, especially in the case of a flat body, by allowing it to hang
freely from a string attached alternately at different comers of it, or by bal
ancing it in two or more positions over a fanifeedge, etc., and finding G in
either case by the intersecnon of the lines or planes of gravity thus found.
(6). Tlie irraplilc metliod of finding the resultant of parallel forces
may often be advantageously used for finding the center of gravity of a com
pound body or figure, or of a system of bodies or figures, when the centers of
gravity of the several parts are xnown.
Thus, in Fig. 8, let a^ 6 and e represent three figures or bodies whose centers
of gravity are in one plane. Draw vertical lines through said centers, and
construct the polygon of forces, xa 6e, Fig. 9. making the lin's xa^ahy etc.,
proportional to the weights of a, 6 and e; and from any convenient point O
draw radial lines Ox, Oa, etc. In Fig. 8, draw m ti^mrunp, and p A;, parallel
IMpectively to O a;, O a, O 6, e. Then a vertical line, i Gy drawn through the
Intersection, i, of m A and pkAs a line of gravity of me system or figure. If
the body or figure is symmetriealf as in the cross section of a T rail, I oeam or
deck beam, etc., the axis of symmetry, dividing the figure, etc. into two simi
lar and equal paxts, is also a line of gravity, and its in^rsection with the line
