JOHN 'WILEY & SONS, Scientific Publishers, IS East Nineteenth Street, New Yor^ City. 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 see-eaw, let them see (and measure for them- •elTbs) that the lighter one is farther from the fence-rail 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 see-saws 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 see-saw, ikey balance each other. Let them see that the weight of the heavy hoy, when multiplied hy his distance in feet from the fence-rail 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 foot-pounds. 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 ear-pulling, 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, cube-roots, &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 pocket-size, 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 pocket-books, 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 master-minds, 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. John C. Tbautwhi*. Philadelphia, November 13th, 1871. PREFACE TO NINTH EDITION. TWENTY-SECOND THOUSAND, 1885. CI INCE the appearance of its last edition (ihe twentieth thousand) '^ in 1883, the " Ppcket-Boo]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 re-arrangement, 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 steam-bammer 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 well-boring 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 re-touched and re-lettered, 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 re-cast into the same form. ix X FB£:fAC£. The addition of new matter, and a number of blank spaces necessarily left in making the re-arrangement, have increased the number of pages about one-fifth. 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. Philadelphia, January, 1886. J. C. T., Jb. PREFACE TO EIGHTEENTH EDITION. (SEVENTIETH THOUSAND, 1902.) IN preparation for its eighteenth edition, The Civil Engineer's Pocket Book, the first edition of which appeared thirty years ago, has undergone a far more extensive revision than at any other time. More than 370 pages of new matter have been added ; and the new edition is larger, by about 100 pages, than its recent predecessors. Among the new matter in this edition will be found : Pages 43- 46 Annuities, Depreciation, etc. 70- 72 Logarithms. 73- 77 Logarithmic Chart and Slide Kule. 80- 91 New Table of Logarithms. 228- 253 Conversion Table of Units of Meaaurement. 300- 301 Isogonic Chart. 532- 635 Venturi Meter. 536 Ferris-Pitot Meter. 546 Miner's Inch. * 649 Water Consumption in Cities. 658- 659 Cost of Water Pipe and Laying. 745- 764 Digests of Specifications for Bridges and Buildings. 816 Tie Plates. 870- 873 Digest of Specification for Iron and Steel. 905- 906 Gray Column. 914 Trough Floor Sections. 983- 995 Price List of Manufactured Articles. 996-1007 Business Directory. 1008-1023 BibUography. The following articles have been almost or entirely rewritten: Nkw Pages Old Pages 35- 47 Arithmetic 33-37 210-211 Specific Gravity 380-381 265-266 Time 395 282-283 Chains and Chaining 176 284-290 Location of the Meridian 177-179 322-325 Rain and Snow 220-221 358-453 Statics 318 f-361, 370-375 xi • • XU PREFACE.

The new and greatly enlarged table of five-place 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 five-place 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 hour-angles, 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 " scissors-and- 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.

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 semi-clrcumferenoe. 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. AssTButata. ' 35 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 78 = 2 X 8 X 13 126 = 2X3X3X7 284 = 2X3X3X13 and H. G. F. * 2 X 8 — 6. (6) To find tlie H. C. F* of two large numbers ; divide the greater by the less ; then the less by the remainder, A : A by the second remainder, B ; B by the third remainder, G ; and so on until there is no remainder. The last divisor Is the H. G. F. Thua, required the H. a F. of 575 and 782. 675)782(1 575 A 207)575(2 414 B 161)207(1 161 G 46)161(8 188 D 28)46(2 H. G. F. =- D » 2& 46 (7) A comnMMi maltiple of two or more numbers is a number which is exactly divisible by eaoh of tn^m. (8) Tbe least common maltiple of two or more numbers is called iheir li. €. M. (9) To find the !<• C. M. of two or more numbers ; find the prime factors of each. Multiply the factors together, taking each as many times as it is con- tained in that number in which it is oftenest repeated. Thus, required the L. G. M. of 7, 80, and 48. 7 = 7 30 = 2X3X5 48 = 2 X2X 2X2X3 L. C. M. = 7X2X2X2X2X8X5 = 1680. (10) To find the !<• C M. of two large numbers; find the H. C. F., as above ; and, by means of it, find the other factors. Then find the product of the fKtors, as before. Thus, required the L. G. M. of 575 and 782. As above, H. G. F. =23; ^ = 25; and^ = 34. Hence, 575 = 23 X 25 782 = 23 X 34 and L. G. M. = 28 X 25 X 84 = 19,660. FRACnOBTS. CI) A conuBfMi denominator of two or more fhictions is a common moltiple of their denominators. (2) The least common denominator, or !<• €• D«, of two or more firactions is the L. G. M. of their denominators. 36 ARITHMETia (8) To rednce to a oommoii denominfttor.

If necessary, reduce the fractions to a common denominator, the lower the better. Add or subtract the numerators. Thus, 1 4.1 _2_i.8 4.1_4_i.8 4.5_27 .20_47_i 11. 3_l7_64.7_13_,6 f_l— 2_1.8_5_2_7_20_jr.7_3_7 6_1 (5) Multiplication. Multiply together the numerators, also the denomi- nators, cancelling where possible. Thus, lvl_l. 8vl S_« 3 V 5 v^ 2 _ 6 . 84 X i| = ^ X I = Jjft^ = 5|f ; I X f = |; |of|of|of^ = f X^Xf X| = |. (6) IMvision. Invert the divisor and multiply. Thus, l^l=,lv2_2_,. 3^1_8v4_8„-. i;^7_Bv8_40_e5 o-7--g- — oXir — 7V- — 5-S-. (7) A fraction is said to be in its lowest terms, or to be simplified* when its numerator and denominator have no common factor. Thus, 1^ simplified = |-. (8) To reduce to low<$st terms. Divide numerator and denominatox 34 by their H. C. F. Thus, required the lowest terms of ^. H. C. F. Of 34 and 85=^17; and ?^ « ?i:ti? = ?. 85 85 + 17 S ARITHMETIO. 87 (9) Mnltlplleatlon. The prodnct has as many decimal places as th« factors combined. Thus, . Factors: 100X3X3.5X0.004X465.21 = 1953.882000 Number of decimal places: + 0+1+ 8+ 2= 6 (10) DiTisloii. The number of decimal places in the quotient = those in the dividend minus those in the divisor.

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.

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 = l-s-^'. (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 man-days, and 12,000 12 000 bricks will require 6 X XaSa = 6 X 3 = 18 man-days ; 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 i = a + (n — 1) d Required I Given a d n I ads s a d n ? = — l.rf±|/2d* + (a — ^cf)S , = 1. n [2 a + (n — 1) d] dls o=»-|-(f± l/(/-|-^d)8 — 2d* d — 2 a ± ^(2 a — d)8 -I- 8 d * n ads n =a 2d n dls 21 + d ± >/(2/ + d)2— 8dj 2d (S) ISeometrieal Progression. A series of numbers is said to be in geometrical progression when each number stands to the preceding one in the same ratio.

(1) Permatation shows in how many positions any namber of things oatt 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* 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, or from 9 any things? 9X8X7X6 3024 ,„^ ., ^, . r x 2 X 8 X 4 ^'2r^ combinations. Ans.

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) One-fiftietli, 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 = 1-J^ 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 mis-read six one-hundredths of one per cent, or six oue-hun- dredths per cent, t For proportions by volume, see pp 936 and 943. 42 ARITHMETIC.

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)- p = (l+r)« (12) If the int^est is compounded g times per year, we have (la) The principal, P, is sometimes called the |»i*esent worth or present Talue of the amount, A.

(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. 44 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 life-time, 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.

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, minus tiie $1 principal itself; or, amount of annuity = (l -f r)** •— 1.

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 life-time 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.

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 Duodenal 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 T E 10 11 12 ... 18 19 1T1E20 21 30 40 50 Decimal 72 84 96 99 100 108 109 110 111 112 113 117 118 119 120 121 122 Duodenal 60 70 80 83 84 90 91 92 93 94 95 99 9T 9E TO Tl T2 Decimal 129 130 131 182 133 138 140 141 142 143 144 288 1728 20736 etc. Dnodenal T9 TT T£ EO El E6 E8 E9 ET EE 100 200 1000 10000 etc. (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. •See Elements of Mechanics, by the late John W.

(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 — a-i- — = an. fieiice, a -f- Becip a = a -*- — =»aX'7~ = a*. Thus. Eedp2 = 0.6.and-g^ = ^ = 4-2.. (: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.

The longer table, pages 80 to 91, giyes (1) The mantissa for each number from 1000 to 1750 (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^-^ =n-i = - , and no-a = n-« = -j it follows that log w-i = log = log recip n ; log n-* = log zj = "^og recip 7*2, etc. • (11) Proportion.

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. 4.66 890-5-3 = 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 neyatl-ve 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 cross-section 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. 74 LOGARITHMIC CHART AND SLIDE RULE. (2) The lofrarlttamle eliart consists primarily of a square,* on the sides oi which the distances marked 1-2, 1~3, etc., are laid off by scale 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 re-entered at a point directly opposite. Thus, in the case of line xH (= iTS'y. TiiTiP Trifi.i*1rAi^ between • correspondi to values of xH xttom xH from (1) (2) (3) (4) 1 and S 8} and S, S, and S. Ss and H Ito 10 10 to 31.62 81.02 to 100 100 to 1000 1 to 4.64 4.64 to 10 10 to 21.54 21.54 to 100 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 = 1-1.5 + 1-2 = log 8 = distance 1-M. But log 15 + log 20 = (1-1.5 + 1-10) + (1-2 + 1-10), 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 Rule : The Cox Computers, designed for special formulas ; and the Pocket Calculator, issued by " The Mechanical Engineer," London. LOGABrrHMIC CHABT AND SUBB BI <5) Mvltliiltcattoii aad dlvlsiofli. For example, 1-X* in the chart, or on C or D, in the alide rule, the diatf sents by scale the logarithm (0.17 600) of 1.5, and 1-1 losaiithxn (0.30 103) of 2. If now we add these two dis by laylnflT off 1-2 ttom 1.5 on 1-X of the chart, or by placl In the figure, we obtain the distance 1-3 = .47 712 = the m or of log (2 X 1.5).* Conversely, to divide 3 by 2, we graphica cally subtract 1-2 fh>m 1-3. (•) In tbe l4»9Arftliinlc chart, the scales of both axes, 1-Y, being equal, a line 1-H, marked x, bisecting the square ai ing an angle of 45<' with each axis (tan 45° = l),t will bisect also tl sections ox all equcU co-ordinates. Thus, points In the line x, imm over 2, 3, 4, etc.. in 1-X, are also opposite 2, 3, 4, etc., respect!' 1-Y. 8ee (4). g*) If lines 2-A\ S-K, etc. (marked 2x, 8a;, etc.), parallel to m , be drawn through 2, 8, etc., on 1-Y, then points in such li mediately over any number, x, in 1-X, will be respectively oppo (*) In the slide rule, with the slide as shown, ea/:k number on 1.5 X the coinciding number on C.

If these lines ^^ «• etc., be produced downward, they will cut 1-Y (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 1-X, whose tangent, f-^ is 2, it will give values of z*. Thus, the ver- tical through 3, on 1-X, cuts the line x* opposite 9 (= 3*) on 1-Y. 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 1-X is = n, and intersecting 1-Y 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 1-Y, 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 1-X, should be perma- nently ruled across the sheet at short intervals. (11) For any log, as 1-8 (= log 3), we may substitute its equal. M-N or 3-N, extending to the central diagonal line 1-H, marked x; and then, since, for instance, 1-1.2 = N-Q, 1-3 = N-K, etc., we may add any log (as 1-3) by moving upward from line x (as from N to K) or to the right, and siw^act any log (as 1-1.2) 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). F-G = 1-F = log 1.5. Add G-J = 1-2 = log 2 ; sum = F-J = log 3 = 1-3 = M-N. Add N-K = 1-3 = log 3 ; sum = M-K = log 9 = 1-9 = 9-R. Subtract R_T = 1-2 = log 2 ; remainder = 9-T = 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 4-2 leaving 1-Y, at 4, and forming, with 1-X, 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 2-2. Lines (C x) giving multi- ples and sub-multiples 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 2-A. 2 X 5 = 10 ; in 3-K, 8 X 3.38 ... = 10, etc. The chart thus furnishes a table of reciprocals. . , (t) Even with full-size charts and slide rules for actual use, accuracy is not to be expected beyond the third or fourth significant flgure.

(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.

(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.

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 rl|pb 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 (ape-llne, ehain, or a ■Masuring-rod 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 one-half 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. AJlGIaES. 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 one-fourth 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. laanon o n Z QEOHETBY. 93 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 straight-lined 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 straight-lined 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 straight-lined 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 slraight-lined fig, no matter how many sides it may have, amount to 860° ; but, In (he case of a re-entering 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 + 6cto-fca« = 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, to draw a perp, p a. From p, with any oonvenient opening of the dividers, step off the •qvals po,p§. From o and g as centers, with any opening greater 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, ■ztfend the line, if possible, and proceed as above.

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.

It is, therefore, eqoal 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. Tanicen tbworad, of any angle « « fr. is a line drawn from, and at right angles to, the end 6 or a of either rad c 6, or c a, which forms one of the legs of the sn^ ; and terminating as at to, or d, in 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 to-be 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 eo-sine, co-rersed sine ; co-tangent; 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 well-known 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.

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.

PH ^ ^ 04 I- s 3 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 radius-scale ; 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 India-rubber, and dulling of the pencil-point. 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 radius-scale) 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. m' » CHORDS TO A RADIUS 1. M.

Thus, in Fig X, the sine, ai found above, is opp the angle & e a in the table.

Having thus found the angles, lad the third side by Case 1. As a praetieal example of the use of Case S, we oan asoertain the dist n m across a deep pond, by measuring two lines n o and mo; and the angle n e m.

If the position of the inaccessible dist c n. Fig 10, be such that we can place a stake p in line with it, we may proceed thus : Place the instrument at any suitable point «, and take tbe angles ptc and cnn. Also find the angle eps, and measure tbe distps. Then In the triangle p t c find « e by Case 1 ; again, the exterior angle n e «, being equal to tbe two interior and opposite angles cp «, and j> « c, we have in the triangle eon^ one side and two angle* to find e n by Case 1. Ex. 6. To flnd a dlst ah, Flgr II9 of whieh the ends only Mre accessible. From a and 6, measure any two lines a e, & c meeting at e ; also measure the angle a eh.

Flaoe the instrument at i ; measure a m. Directing the instrument hor, as an, take tbe angle nam. Then, since a n m is 9P Fig 12, we bare one side a m, and two angles, nam and a n m, to find n m by Case 1. Add n o, equal to a <, the height of the instrument. Also, if tbe bill Is a long one, add for cnrrature of the earth, and for reh-action, as explained in Example 3, Fig 7. Or tbe instrument may be plaoed at the top of the bill ; and an angle of depression measured ; instead of tbe angle of elevation nam. Bxu. 1. It is plain, that if tbe height o m be previously known, and we wish to ascertain tbe dist from its Bum- TiMir 72 mit m to any point i, the same measurement as before, * ' * of the ancle nam, will enable us to calculate a m by Case 1. So in Ex. 2, if the height na be known, the angles measd in that example, wfU enable «k to compute the dist a ; so also In Figs S, 4, 6, and 7 ; La all of which tbe process is so plain as to raqnire no further explanation.

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.

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.

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 one-half 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 », the sanares of their respective ords s s, o a, Ac; that is, as i s : ba : : ss* :o<i>;orbs:ss>::b«: • a* . If the square of any ord be divided by iu abscissa, the qnot will ho a constant qnantltj ; that Is, it wHl bo equal to the sqoaro of any other ord dlTlded by Its abscissa. This qnot or oonstantqaan* tfty Is also equal to a eertsln quantity oallod the pmrameter of the parabola. Thersfbra tho p^'^nwtsr may be found by squaring s s, or e a, (one>ha^ of the base,) and dividing said square bv tho height i s. or b a, as the case may be. If the square of any ord be divided by tho panoMtar, tbt qnot wff he the abscissa of that ord. To And (lio lenyth of a parabolle enrre. The approximate rule given by various pocket-books, is as IbUows t Length — 2 X V(H '^>^e)a + \% Umes the (Height^ (g Where the height does not exceed 1-lOth of the base, thls'mle may, for praetlMi purposes, be called exact. With ht = )^ base, it gives about H par oeat tos Bueh; ht s M base, about 3^ percent; htsbase, about 8K per coot; ht = %«tee the base, about 11% percent; ht= 10 X base, or more, about 15)t( per oeat The flillewlas \ij the writer U eo r reel within perhaps 1 part in aOO, in all eases ; and will therefore answer for many purposes. Let a d b. Fig S, orik a d. Fig 4, be the parabola. In whioh are given the base abvtndt and tte height c li or c a. Imagine the eonpleteflg ad bs, or » a 4< b, to be drawn ; and in sttAsr ease, aaanms Us loMi^ dlam a b to be the chord or base; and one- half the short diam, or e <i, to be the heightt of a circular arc. Find the length of this circular are, by means of the rule and table given for that pur* pose. Then div the chord or Immo a b, or n d of 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> imate; or in other words, the parabola will be of almost exactly the same length as the eiroular are. To find the area of a |»arabola ta a n l^. Mult iU base m n, Fig 5, by its height a h ; and Uke %^^M of the prod. The area of any segment, as « b v, whose base tt v is parallel to as n, is found in the same way, using u « and s b, instead of iw i» and a b.

The irregular surface of the ground is first staked out in squares; (the tape-line 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 4-sided, 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.

If A cylinder is any solid whose ends are ^h^-^_^ jC ^ parallel, similar, and equal curved fignires ; 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.

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. V oliune or pyramtd or co£e, regular or Irregnlai^ right or obliqu«.

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.

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. 1 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 saw-dust, 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. 212 8PE0IFIC GRAVITY.

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 avoirdu|M>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 twenty-hundredweight, 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 univei-sal among of viliaeo rations. WEIGHTS AND MEASURES. 217 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 ten-millionth 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 ei|niTalent 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. Tbe ffram Weislis, by Prof. W. H. Miller's determination,! 15.43234874 Sains. An examination made at the International Bureau of Weights and easures in 1884 makes it 15.43236639 grains. The leeal value in the United States is 15.432 grains. • 1 centimeter =» r^ meter = 0.3937 inch. 1 milliliter {^^ liter) or cubis centi- meter =3 0.061 + cubic inches, t Anpendix No. 22 to report of 1876, page 6.

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 roof-crest 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 from Greenwich. Name of Standard Time. Conventional color. W 76P 9(P 106° laoo Intercolonial. Eastern. Central. Mountain. Pacific. Brown. Red. Blue. Oreen. Yellow. 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 time-table, 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 time-tables. 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. 268 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 quarter-hour 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 Snn-Dlal. 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 oo-latitnde (» 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. BOABD HBABCBE. BOABD HEASTTBE. ■ fMlowlnv t»Me. Tha u.

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 one-half 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 • A 100 ft. ehalii may Tary Its length 5 feet per mile, between winter and sammer. bj m«rc ehange of temperature; and this alone will make a differenoe of about 1 acre in 6X1.

It la well in taking the oom- pass bearings, to adopt as a rule, always to point the north of tbe compass* box toward tbe ohJeet whose bearing is to be taken, and to read off from tbe north end of the needle. A person who uses indUEerentiy th» M and tbe S of the box, and of the needle, will be very liable to make mistakee. n ie beet to measure the least angle (shown by dotted arcs, Tig 2.) at the sther it ; whether it be exterior, ae that at oomer ft; or interior, as all the others; because it is al- ways less than 180° ; so ^ , . •,. ^ that there is less danger >; .'

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 hnmor-ln 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> BiBg at oomer 1, at the fsr end of side 1, say« as the Sum of aU .

Finally, Join the points a, b, e, li, e, 6 ; and the plot la finished. 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. tnm those to be fbond in books on survering. This Is the only way In which be oan learn what la 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- jt-naker. A very fine needle, with a sealing-wax 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 n-om 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 fsed ordinary drawing-paper.

Make b e equal to the entire oloaing error ; 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 -r-Itt 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 showing that that bearinc was probably not infloenesd by local attraction. Let ilds t be the one so selected ; ••» sume iM bearing, N 76° ST I, as taken on the ground, to be correct; through either end of it, as at its far end S, draw the short meridian line ; par- 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. %, m, is 76° 32'. Therefore, if we take IfP 38' trom the entire oorreoted angle 1, 8, S, or lUP 67', the rem 68° 86' wiU bn the angle m 83 ; consequently the bearing of aideS mstaC be 8 MO 86' E. For finding the bearing of aide 4, we now hare the angle 88 a of the reveraebearing af •Ide S, alao equal to 6»o 26' : and if we add this to the entire corrected angle 234. or tofito 88*. we havs theangleaS4 = «8O23'+e»°S3' = 1380 67'; which taken f^m 180°. leaveo the angle 684= il^S'; FI9.8. • BecaoM in evenr atralght*llned figure the sum of all its Interior 1 light angles as the figure has sides, minus 4 right angles, or 300°. iglos Is eqnal to twlea a« LANS SUBYEYINa. 277 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.

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.

Let lines o d and ef be drawn from eaeh oomer, perp to the meridian line ; also from the middle of eaeh 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 ; fa the northing of ea; and d/ the southing of 6e. Aow if we mult the nothing ad ot the side ab, by its mid dist ew, the prod Is the area of the triangle abd. In like manner the northing fa of the side ea, mult by its mid dist « o, gives the area of the triangle a ef. Again, the $otUhing dfot the side b e, mult by lu mlddistmn, gives the area of the entire flg dhefd.

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 sheaf-like 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 base-measuring 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 : Stretch, in feet neers' PS EA where P = pull on tape, in fl>s. S = span of tape, in feet.

IiO€ATIOIir OF THE HERIDIAHT. By means of clrcampolar stars. (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. (3) The altitude of the pole is the angle N O P of the pole's elevation above the horizon N E S W, and Is = the latitude of the point of obser- FiG. 1. Pig. 2. 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 nortb-and-sontii 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- tlon.{ « In 23 h. 56.1 m. 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. g As seen ttova. the equator, a star, at either elongation, is, like the pole Itself, on the horizon ; and the two lines Pe,Tw, joining it with the pole, * — I a single straight line perpendicular to the meridian, and lying in the LOCATION OF THE MERIDIAN. 285 (6) The boar anffle of any star, at any given mconent, is the time 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 observation, the aaimutli of the star, at eloiiirAtlon, may be found by the formula.f Sine of azimuth of star = sine of polar distance of star cosine of latitude of point of observation or see (11) and Table 3.

(11) Table 3 ffives the polar distances of Polaris and their log sines for January 1 in each third year from 1900 to 1990 inclnsive, the log cosines of each fifth deeree of latitude from '2/iP to 50°, and the corresponding azimuths of Polaris at elongation. Intermediate values may be taken by 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 or downward.

X I'h^ T^^y ^ done by means of a bull's eye, or a dark lantern, so neld as not to throw its light into the eye of the observer ; or, better, by means of a piece of tin plate, cut and per- forated as in Fig. 4, bent at an angle of 45^, as in Fig. 5, and painted white on the surface next to the telescope. The ring, formed by bending the long sirip, is placed around the object end of the telescope. A li^ht, screened from the view of the observer^ is then held, at one side of the instrument, in sucb a way Fig. 4. . Fig. 6. that its rays, falling upon the oblique and whitened surface of the tin plate, are reflected directly into the telescope. (16) Bring the vertical hair to cut Polaris, and, bv means of the tangent screw, follow the star as it appears to move, to the right if approaching eoM.- 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, (swinging it horizontally through an arc of 19XP), sight to the star again. ^ portion of the " great bear " (Ursa major), a line drawn through these two stars passing near Polaris. .\s the stars in the handle of the dipper form the tail of the great bear, as shown on celestial maps, so Polaris and the stars near it form the tail of the little bear (Ursa minor.) Polaris is also 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 about 5°, or == the distance between the pointers. * Part of a table computed by the Surveying Class of 1882-8, School of Engineering, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tenn., and published by Prof Clin H. Landreth. 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 cross-hairs of the transit, as well as the stake, and the knife-blade or pencil-point with which the assistant marks it, show out dark against the illuminated surface of the paper. \ See Note, page 290.

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.

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 plumb-line and sight. A brick, stone, or other heavy object will answer perfectly as a plumb-bob. 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 plumb-line and sight should be at least 15 feet apart, and so placed that the star and plumb-line can be seen together through the sight, throughout the observation. The plumb-line 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 plumb-line 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. t Deduced from values calculated in astronomical time (p. 266) by the U. S.

The limb extends beyond the compass-box, 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 corapass-box C, the two bubble-tubes M M, the standards y Y, supporting the telescope, &c. Each bubble-tube is supported and adjusted by four capstan-head 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 tangent-screw 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 clamp-screw 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 tangent-screw G. The motion of the vernier plate P over the graduated limb O is simUarly governed by the tangent-screw 6 and its spiral spring (not shown), fixed to the ternier plate P, and the clamp-screw 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 "lost-motion." 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 eompaas-needle, ib. Fig 2, should always be pressed up against the glass cover of the compass-box by means of the upright miUed-head screw seen on the ver^ nier-plate 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 eye-end. 1C, of the telescope revolve dowHiffard, as otherwise the shade on O, if in use, may fall off. The tangent-screw, 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 vernier-arm L Bt mesns of the screw D. the movable vernier-arm 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 right-angles 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.

This and a similar one on the opposite side of the telescope, work 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. Tbe lonff babble-tube« F F, Fig 1, enables us to use the transit as a level. •Ithoof h it Is not so well adaotsd as the latter to this purpose. 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 oltject-glass 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 object-glass 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 eye-glass and object-glass are so drawn out that there shall be ne parallax. The eye-glass must first be drawn out so as to obtain perfect distinctness of the cross-hairs ; it must not be disturbed afterward; but the object-glass must be moved for different distances. First, to ascertain tliat tlie bnbble-tnbes, M Bf • are placed parallel to the vernier-plate, 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 half-way round. If the Dubbles do not remain in the center, correct half the error by means of the two capstan-nuta rr; and the other half by the levelling-screws 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 chain-pin, Ac, in the line.) Then un- clamp either H or e, and turn the upper parts of the inst half-way 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 one-ltalf of the difference by means of the adjusting-block and screw at the end, R, of the telescope axis. Fig. 1, and repeat the trial de novo, resetting the stake or chain-pin at each trial. If the inst has no adjusting-block 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 cross-hairs are traly vert and hor ^rhen the inst is level. When the telescope inverts, the cross-hairs are nearer the eye-end than when it shows objects erect. The maker takes care to place the cross-hairs at right-angles 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 bubble-tubes, level the in« strnment carefully, and take sight with the telescope at a plumb-line, 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 screw-heads, 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 plumb-line, or vert stsulgfat edge, sight the cross-hair 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 cross-hairs. The hair-ring, or diaphragm, a; vert hair, v; tele* scope tube, g ; ring outside of telescope tube, d; & is one of the four capstMi-headed screws which hold the hair-ring, a, in its place, and also serve to a^jnst it. The lower ends of these screws work In the thickness of the hair-ring; so that when they are loosened somewhat, they do not lose their hold on the ring. Small THE EKOIKEES'S TIUXSIT. 295 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 tangent-screw O ffigs. 1 and 2) upon some convenient object h\ or if there is none such, drive a thin stake, or a ennin-pin. 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 clamp-screw 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 <— one-fourth 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 cross-hairs, 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 back-sights, and two fore-sights, a c and a m, may be taken, as when making the adjustment ; and the point 0, half-way between c and m, will be in the straight line. The inst may then be moved to 0, and the two back-sights 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.

If no level is at hand for levelling the two pegs o and &, it may be done by the transit itself, thus : Carefully level the two short bubbles, by means of the levelling-screws K. Drive a peg m, from 100 to 300 feet from the instrument o. Then placing a target-rod on m, clamp the target tight at whatever height, as sv, the hor hair happens to cut it ; it being of no im- l^ L portance whether the telescope is level or not; TV (J) although it might as well be as nearly so as can \ X conveniently be guessed at. Clamp the telescope g^ — JJ. in its position by the clamp-ring K, Fig. 1. Re- ^ volve the inst a considerable way round; say iJifiT. 0. nearly or quite half way. Place another peg n, atprecUdy the same diet from the instrument that m is; and continue to drive it un- til the hor hair cuts the target placed on it, and still kept clamped to the rod, at the same height as when it was un m. When this is done, the tops of the two pegs are on a level with each other, and are ready to be used as before directed. 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 H) 10 ways from aero, thus, i n ii 1 1 1 h i 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 I m the vernier also is mada 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 cross-hairs 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 gum-arabic water, Ac. This requires care. Then, to return the diaphi-agm to its place, press firmly into one of the screw-holes 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 so-called cross- hairs are actually spider-web, 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 spirit-level, 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 compass-covers, and needles; atjQusting pins; level vials; magniflen, Ao, Theodolite adjustments are performed like those of the level and transit. let.

Somttimw • second telescofKi is added ; it Is p^iic«d belov the hor limb, and to THE BOX OB POCKET SEXTANT. 297 called a toate?ur. It has its own clamp, and tangent-screw. 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 milled-head 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 eye-hole at A should be partially closed by a slide which has a very small eye-hole 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 eye-faole when observing the ran. When the telescope is used, it is fastened on by the milled-head 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 Index-fplass, is attached to the underside of the index, at C; its upper" edge being indicated by the two dotted lines. The other, the Moriaon-KliMiS) (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 horizon-glass is silvered only half-way 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 index-glass. 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 index-glass is already permanently fixed by the ma^T, and requires no other a4ju8tment. But the horizon-glass has two adjust- ments, which are made by a key like that of a watch, and having a milled-head 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 square-heads, (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 index-glass 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 eye-hole, and the lower or unsilvered part of the horixon-glasB, 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 square-head 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 one-half 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 mountain-peaks 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 levelling-screws ; 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 horizon-glass has the two adjust- ments of the box sextant. It also has its dark glasses for looking at the sun ; and a small eight-hole, 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 half-way round. If tlie bubbles then remain at the cen- ters, they are in adjustment;. but if not, correct one-half the diff" in each bubble, by means of the adjusting-screws 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 plumb-line ; 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 pivot-point 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 half-way 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 pivot-pin. 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 pivot-point is already in adjustment ; but if the needle does not so cut, bend the pivot-point 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 sight-slits 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. THE COMPAfiS. THE COUFABB. I!

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 compass-box 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 well-known 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 center-stakes. 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 CONTOUB JUNES. 303 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 spirit-level; but more frequently oy a slope-man. with a straight 12-ft 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 field-book 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. * la thni aiing the word* right and left wc an lUppoMd to have our baeki turned to the ■tartiog point of the survey.

The notes naving been taken, the preparation of the contour lines by means of them, is of course office-work ; 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 station-stake. 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 cross-sectitm 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 station-stake. 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 lead-pencU 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 station-stake, we find « I to be say 2 ft ; but Z is above the level of the station-stake, therefore its height above datum is Biff. 8. 100 4- 2 » 102 ft, as figured at e on the map. Let ng be 5 ft; then is n, 100 -f- ^ 105 ft above datum, as marked at a ; and so on at eacn station. When this has been 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 lead-pencil dot at t ; and then go to the next fetation 1. Here we see that the height of 103 ft coincides with the station-stake itself; place a dot there, and go to Sta 2. The ^evel at this stake is 101 ; therefore the contour for lOP CONTOUli LDcaa. 305 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 station-stake, Fig 4, the level is 104; that the cross-sec- 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 station-stake, 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 ground-slopes. Then these lines, measured by the scale, plainly give the requirea dists. When the ground is very irregular transversely, the cross-sections 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 cross-sections upon. When the ground is very steep, it is usual to shade such portions of the map to represent hill-side. 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 slope-instrument. In many cases, notes similar to the following will serve the purpose of contour lines on railroad surveys. BUCO.. 61.. es.. 6S. ... — S.1B. +S. IL. ... + 2.2B. — 1.8L. ... = 1. E. + 4. 1 L.

If flnt will be lDworM^ and Iba liorltnntal hair with it. But un loiAing through the tal» I 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 eye-piece B reTerse the apparent position of objects intid€ cf the telescope ; which effect is obTiated, as regcurds exterior ol^Jects, by means of the object-glass 0. This must be remembered when adjusting the cross-hairs ; 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 bubble-tube D D. One end of this tube can be raised or lowered slightly by means of the two capstan-headed 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 bubble-tube are two smidl capstan-screws, 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>ble-tube is the bak Y F ; at one end of which, as at y, are two large capstan-nuts 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 elamp-serew 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 cross-hairs 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 tanfrent-ticrew 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 tangent-screws, 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 tripod-taead ; and, in connection with three wooden legs Q Q Q, constitute the tripod. In the figure are seen the heads of wing-nuts J which confine the legs to the tripod-head. Under the center of the tripod-head should always be placed a small ring, from which a plumb-bob may be suspended. This is not needed in ordinary levelling, but becomes useful when rangmg center-stakes, &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^ect-glass, 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 cross-bairs ; 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.

To replace broken bubble tabe, see p 296. Tbird, tbat of tbe Ts, by which the telescope and bubble-tube a^re supported; flo that the bubble-tube, 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 cross-hairs, 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 eye-glass E, until the cross-hairs 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 object-glass 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 cross-hairs, if the eye is moved a little up or down or sideways. To secure this, the object-glass alone is moved to suit different distances ; the eye-glass is not to be changed after it lb once properly fixed upon the cross-hairs. The neglect of parallax is a source of frequent errors in levelling. Clamp ; and, by means of the tangent-screw d, bring either one of the cross-hairs to coincide x>reciM/y with the object. Then gently, and without jarring, revolve the telescope naif-way 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 one-fuUf 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 tangent-screw bring the cross-hair to coincide with the object. Then again turn the telescope half-way 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 one-half 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 bubble-tube 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 bubble-tube endwise, from t in tbe foregoing Fig, its two hor adjusting-screws 1 1 are seen as in this sketch. The larger capstan-headed 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 bubble-tube, by means of the two nuts nn. Place the telescope over a diagonal pair of the levelling-ecreWH K. K ; and clamp it there. Open the clips of the Ys; and by means of the levelliug-screws 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 levelling-screws 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 levelling-screws, 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 bubble-tube,** p 2ML Horizontal adjustment of bubble-tube ; to see that its axis is in the same plans with nhat of the telescope, as it usually is in new instruments. It is not eesily d» TEE LEVEL. 309 ranged, except by blows. Have the bubble-tube, 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 bubble-tube 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 bubble-tube 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 levelling-screws K. Place the telescope over two of the levelling-screws which stand diagonally; and leave it there undamped. Then bring the bubble to the center of its tube, by the two levelling-screws. Swing the upper part of the instrument half-way 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 half-way back by the large cap- stan nuts to, 10 ; and the other half by the two levelling-screws. 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 levelling-screws; 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 fore-sight he taken at preeiidy the tame distance from the instrument as the back-sight 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 target-man, 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 levelling-screws in many instruments become very hard to turn if dirty. Clean with water and a tooth-brush. Use no oil on field instruments. Forma for level note-books.

And with the level, Station 6 also means the dist from stake 5 to stake 6; the back-sight for that dist being taken at stake 5, and the Ibre-sight on stake 6; and thait the level, grade, cut, or fill is that at stake 6. The starting-point 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 instrument-maker ; 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 plumb-line or other vertical line, and make a short continuous knife- Kiatch on the collar nearest the object-glass, 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 bubble-tube is under the telescope. THB HAKD-IiBVKL TOE BASD-LETEI. ffll.

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.

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 sea-level 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 sea-level, 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 sea-level, at the rate (very roughly) of about 1^ Fah for every 200 ft near sea-level, to 350 ft at the height of 1 mile.

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 pistol-shot 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 tissue-paper 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. w t« g!^;.'.: Eaeb 13^ M IS" of bekt prodncaln wr*t Ir^ i °* ^ I"" '° "" '^t^' Id Iki no «!• niv U(>. n IM Iha I«(Ilu i , „ ezpsnalon of HtVD* wUlfmi* TinM mcRlnS points «re qnlM lUiccrtatM.

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 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 one-flxtietii 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 * H. V.

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 divliiK-bell, 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 -i-l(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. YeiL in MUes Vei. m Ft. Frea. in Lbs. Remarks. per Hour. per Sec. per Sq.

Probably the force in suoh cases varies approximately as the of the angles of slopes. According to observations in Liverpool, in 1860, a wind of 38 miles per prodmsed a pre* of 14 lbs per sq ft againut an object perp to it: and one of 70 miles, per hour, (the Mvterect gale on reoord at that city.) 43 lbs per sq foot. These would make the ores per sq ft, More nearly equal to the ■qoAre of the vel iq miles per hour, dlv by 100 ; or nearly twice as great as glvea in Smaaton's table, we should ourselves give the preference to the Liverpool observations. A very violent gale in Scotland, registered by an excellent anemometer, or wind-gauge, 45 lbs per sq ft. It la stated that aa high as 55 lbs has been observed at Glasgow. High winds often l^ roots. The gaoge at Oirard Coliese, Fhilada, broke onder a strain of 43 lbs per sq ft ; a tornado passing St the moment, within a mils.

The annaal preelpitatlon * at any giyen place varies greatly from year to year, the ratio between maximum and minimum being frequently greater than 2 : 1. Beware of averai^es. In estimating ^oo^«, take the maximum falls, and in estimating water supply, the mtnimttm, not only per annum, but for short periods. In estimating water supply, make deductions for evaporatios and leakage. 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- ing a very severe flood or drought. Becords of from 15 to 20 years may usually be accepted as sufficient. Table 1.

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; Gibraltar, 80 ; Adelaide, Australia, 23 ; West Indies, 36 to 96 ; Rome, 89. On the Khassya hills north of Calcutta, 500 inches, or 41 feet 8 inches, have Allien in the 6 rainy months I In other mountainous districts of India, annual falls of 10 to 20 feet are common.

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 dead-level plain, fully three-quarters 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 water-shed, especially as to rate of absorption, by the season of the year, the frost in the ground, etc. The stream-flow 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.

Duluth— 1.35 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 one-quarter 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 sea-level; 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 run-off 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 cross-section. 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 cross-section, minus that of the btick, is one-tenth of the area of the funnel month. The depth of rainiaU is then one- tenth of the depth as measured by the stick. B DiiCENsiONS OP Standard U. S. Wbathbb Bubbau Bain Gauge. Ins. A. Beceiver or funnel. Diameter 8 B. Measuring tube.

" 9 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 cross-sectional 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 luke-warm 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. Self-reeordinir 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 twenty-third 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. Temp, Fah. Lbs per Cub Ft. 929 62.417 40° 62.423 50° 62.409 60° 62^7 Temp, Fah.

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 water-pipes; 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 air-bubbles. 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 one-21740th.

The lime contained in many waters, forms deposits In metallic water-pipes^ 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 sal-ammoniac 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. Cast-iron 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 wrought-iron bars hooped together, were corroded about }^ inch deep; but had probskoly been pro- tected bv mud. The cast-iron shot became redhot on exposure to the air; and fell to pieces like dry clay I" ** Unprotected parts of cast-iron sluice-valves, 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 light-gray castings remain secure for a long time. Some cast-iron sea-piles 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 coal-tar, 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 water-pipea 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 4-inch bar becomes reduced to a 2-inch one, along that portion of it. Under frenh water especially, or under ground, a thin coating of coal-pitch vamishi carefully applied, will protect iron, such as water-pipes, 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 sea-shore, 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 well-known 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 waste-weirs, 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 sob-divided 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 train-man 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 \wk-v¥ 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 t-wo 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 liaT-e 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 accelerstion-f 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 conseq-qence. 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. FOBCB IN BIOID BODIES. 335 * (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 . ntenlaMBa of ita forward motion.

A man oaamot 1^ a weight of 20 tons; but if it be placed upon prv^r friction rollers^ he can move it horisontally, as we sea in some drawbridges, tumtablea, Ac. ; and if friction and the resistance of the air could be entirely remoTed, he could BOTC it by a ringle breath ; and it would continue to uoto forerer after the foiee of the brecrth had ceased to act upon it. It would, howsTer, moTe Tory slowly, because the force of tbe single breath would hsTe to diffuse itself among 20 tons of 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, by making the two equsU weights each «- 15 ^ lbs. and the third weight *■ 1 Ibw *The greatest discrepancy that can occur at various heights and latitadeS| by adopting weight as the measure of quantity, would not oe likely to s x ess a 1 in 300; or. under ordinary circumstances, 1 in 1000.

This small unit of force is called a ponndal* In order that it may in one second give to the mass of one pouna a velocity of only one foot per second, it must (by Art f b), be -i. f or about Jjj of the weight of said pound mass. Hence, "by m«tl&od By the ma8$ of any given body, in jxrunds - the weight of the body in poundaU and the weiifht of a body, in potmdale — gr X the maea of the body in pound§.

In Sicties^ we are not concerned with the masses of bodies, but only with the fijrees acting upon them, including their weights. Art* 13 (a). Impnlse. By taking, as the unit of force, that force which, in one second, will give to unit mass a velocity of one foot per second, we have (by Art. 9, p. 334), in any case of unbalanced /orc« acting upon a mass during a iSvon timei Velocity - force X time ^^ mass Force - volocity X mass ^gj time Mass - . force X time ^3^ velocity Time - niass Xvelocity ^^ force Force X time — mass X velocity. . . .

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 -vrelfpltt|i9 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 so-called ** 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.

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," (b) If separated, the two bodies, A and B, of 8 &m and 2 lbs respectively, would fidl with equal accelerations = g ; each unit, — , of mass being acted upon by its own weight, W, Bat. connected as they are, A will move downward, and B upward, with an acceler- T^2A ation =» only f ; for now an unbalanced force of 5 only 8 — 2 = lfb must give acceleration to a mass (J'*^0 T*2j4 ation =» only | ; for now an unbalanced force of 5 ,8 + 2 6 « " 2 T-2.4 of = -.

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 340 FORCE IN RIGID BODIES. 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. On a level railroad, let P »- the total tractive force of the locomotive = say 13 tons <• W sa weight of locomotive = 50 tons w sa weight of train = 336 tons R *= resistance of locomotive (including internal fHction, etc.) «> 8 tona r a resistance of train =■ 1 ton F » net force available for acceleration — P — R — r-s9 toms M « mass of engine and train =■ — — ,. _ -* 12 * g 82.2 - ^ , w 8S6 ^^ , . m «■ mass of train = - — —- = 10.44 g 32.2 a = acceleration T = tension on draw-bar.

The tension T on the draw-bar « resistance of train + force causing accel- eration a, orT=r + ma — 1 + 10.44 X 0.76 = 1 + 7.83 = 8.83 tons. This tension, T, pulling backward against the locomotive, causes there a T a aa «r retardatim, or negative acceleration, of masa of tocomoUve = -go- = »» « per sec per sec, and thus reduces, by that amount, the acceleration which the (P ■■'' r) s 10 X 8S.8 locomotive would otherwise have, and which would be — ^ — ka ■■ ,. — oO 60 ~ 6.44. This, less 6.69, » 0.75 ft per sec per sec — acceleration of train. (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 foot-pounde ; if the force is in tons and the distance in inches, the product will be in inch-tons ; and so on.f Thus, if a force of moves a body through we have work = 1 pound 10,000 feet 10,000 foot-pounds 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 « foot-pounds. (I») The foot-pound, the foot-ton, the inch-pound, the inch-ton, 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 foot-pound. The metric nnit of work is the klloflrram-meter, i e. l Kilogram raised 1 meter = 2.2046 pounds raiaed 3.2800 feet, = 7.23S1 foot-pounds. 1 foot-pound = 0.13825 kilogram-meter. («) 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 up-grade, 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 foot-9>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 car-brake 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 clerk-hire, 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 foot-pounds) 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 steam-engine, 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 horse-powers; which means nothing more than that it shall be capable of overcoming resisting forces at the rate of so many times 33,000 foot-pounds per minute when running at a uniform velocity, i. e., when force X distance = resistance X distance. (b) The liorse-poiver, 33,000 foot-pounds per minute, or 550 foot-pounds per second, is the unit of ponrer, or of rate of ivork, commonly used in connec- tion with engines. The metric horse-poorer, called "force dt cheval," " cheval-vapeur," or (German) " Pferdekraft," is 75 kilogram-meters pel second = 542.48 ft-ibs. per sec. = 32,549 ft.-ft>s. per minute = 0.9863 horse-power. 1 horse-power = 1.0138 " force de cheval." In theoretical Mechanics the foot-ponud per second is used in English measure ; and the lUlo§;ram-meter per ceo- ond in metric measure, 1 foot-pound per second =» 0.13826 kilogram-meter per second. 1 kilogram-meter per second = 7.2331 foot-pounds per second. (c) Up to the time when the velocity becomes uniform, the po-wer, 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 foot-pounds per second, we may find it by dividing the work in foot-pounds done during any given time by the number of seconds in tkst time. Thus _ ^ * , force in pounds X distance In feet Power =■ rate of work = \. , ; • time in seconds FOBGE IN RIGIB BODIES. 343 Bat this is eqaivalent to - . * .

Thus if the resistance is 3300 lbs. and is overcome thrpugh a distance of 10 feet in every minute; or if the resistance is 33 lbs. and is overcome through ?di8tonce of 1000 f4et per minute, the rate. of the work i^J^J^^^J'^ the same, namely, 33,000 foot-pounds per mmute, or one horso-power; Sat lbs. vel. lbs. vel. . 8300 X 10 — 33 X 1000 — 33,000 foot-pounds per mmute.

Thus. the power that will lift 60 pounds through 10 feet in asecond, will m a second Hft 600 pounds, 1 foot; or 25 pounds. 20 feet; or 6000 pounds ^ oi a foot. El practice, the adjustment of the speed to suit different resistances, is usually effected by the medium of cog-wheels, belts^or lever.. By "^eans of these the engine, watei>wheel, horse, or other motive power, exerting a given force and ruhning at a given velocity, may be made to overcome small resist* ances rapidly, or great ones slowly, as desired. Art. 19 (a). The 'vrork 'vrhldi a bodjr ean do hy -rlrtiie ot its motion j or (which is the same thing) the 'vrorh reonircd to brins the body to rest. Kinetic energy* -vim -viTa^ or "living ttorce.'* 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, work in foot-pounds — weight X -^ Ifotioe that in this ease (since the initial velocity v Is equal to jy), JL. — 1. ^ 9 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 g it — 2, we have enabled the body to do four times the work which it could io when its — !L was 1; so that the work in the second case is equal to the 9 344 FOBOE IN RIGID BODIE& product of that in the first case multiplied by the 8quar$ of -2L( Qg^ - weight X -2- X ^ — weight X — 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^ pounds, whicn any body will do, f^ainst any resistance, by virtue of its motioii Alone, in coming to rest, is Work - weight of moving body, in lbs.

(b) Since the weight of a body j^ j^^ ^^^ ^^^^ 1^^ ^ 336), the last formula becomes, by "method A,^* Art. 11 (d). mass of moving body w square of its velocity in ft per second in foot^ot^mb " in "matU^' '^ 2 and by "method B," Art. U (e), mass of moving body v> square of its velocity in ft per eeobad infoo^poundato" in potmdij ^ 2 (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 energy - weight X I5!2^; or. 1,120,000 lbs. X — — 8,400,000 ft.-lbs. 64.4 That is, if steam be shut off, the train will perform a work of 8,400^000 fL-lba. 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 8,400,000 ft.-lb8. _ lesott, 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 ft-om 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» •In practice, this would not be the case. 9OB0B IK RIGID BODIES. 345 CMistances of Che road, etc^ for it distance of ons quarter of a mile before it stops. Then, if steam be shut off while the train is moTing at 5, 20, 30 or 40 miles per hour (t. e^ with ^^ 2, 8 or 4 times 10 miles per hour) the train will tiavel JL, 1, 2 ^ or 4 miles (or ^ 4, 9 or 10 times ^ mile) before coming to rest* 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 foot-pounds 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 one-half 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 foot-pounds per second? Mid, while ooming to rest, its •Moa momentum -» mass X T . ^r^ ■« 240 foot-pounds per second.

In other words, the time — ,. velocity ^ velocity •^ acceleration g M £| 1. 3. Three seconds, therefore, is the time during which it can work. How, if the mean rate of work in foot-pounds per seeond (at which a body ean work against a resistance) be multiplied by the time during which it can ooBtinue so to work, the product must be the total work done.

But this foot-pound is stored up in the **sy8tem ** (composed of the earth and the body) as an addition to its stock of potential energy. For, while the stone falls through one foot, the system wilt acquire a kinetic energy of one foot-pound, and will part with one foot-pound of its potential energy. • (b) The potentiai energy of a ''system*' of bodies (such as the earth and a weight raised above it, or the atoms of a mass of powder, or those of a bent spring) depends upon the relative poaitiona of those bodies, and upon their tendencies to change those positions. The kinetie energy of a system (such as the earth and a moving train of cars) depends upon the tnaM«6 m its bodies and upon their motion relatively to each other. Familiar instances of potential energy are— the weight or spring of a clock When fully or partly wound up, and whether moving or not; the pent-up water In a reservoir; the steam pressure in a boiler; and the explosive energy of powder. We have mechanical energy in the case of the weight or springs or water; heat energy in the case of the steam, and obemica! energy in that df the powder. (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 olock-weight* 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 winding-up. 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 boiler-shell; 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 every-day language these terms are used indiscriminately to express the sime ideas. Thus, we commonly speak of the " force " of a cannon-ball 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 clock-weight) as resiaing in only one of the bodies.

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 dock-yard, 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." 348 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 foot-Bote,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 sea-level ; 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- ing rules give perfectly accurate results in practice, especially at great vela. The greater the specific gravity of the body the better will oe the rMnlt. The air ffeelets botn rislnir and fklllnir bodies. If a body be tbrown vertically upwards with a given vel, it will rise to the same height from wiiich it must have fallen in order to acquire said vel; and its vel will be retarded in each second 32.2 It per lec* Its average ascend' ing velocity will be half of that with which it startled ; as in all other cases of uniformly retarded vel. In falling it will acquire the same vel that it started up with, and in the same time. See above Caution.

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 </omn^ distance or "slide" AC in place of the corresponding vertical distance or " fall " A £ in the equations, in order to obtain the acceleratioos etc as follows : on an inclined plane witbont friction.

"PX Because • ^ 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. 352 MOMENT OF INERTIA. The sum of all these products is the moment of inertia of the bodf . Or Moment of Inertia -{ the sum, lor all the particles }•' r weight square of dist -< of X of particle from (.particle axis of revolution or, I = 'S,<fiw. Scientific writers frequently use the mass of each particle ; ie, its weight instead of its weight, in calcnlatiug acceleration (g) of gravity, or about 32.2 the moiueiit of inertia. 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. weight of body, Muare of Table of Radii of Clyratlon.

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 is-called 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. 4 (a).

Here, too, K = 0. Hence, as a lehole^ nich a rim hss lu> centrifugal force ; i. «., no tendency to leave the center in any one Abrection by rirtue of its rotation.

V = the uniform velocity of the body in its circular path, in feet per second. n = tlie number of revolutions per minute. g = the acceleration of gravity = say 32.2 feet per second. 900 g = about 28980. oircumfereuce w = = say 3.1416. ir* = about 9.8696. diameter In m rolling wlieel, each point in the rim, during the moment when it touches the ground, is stationary tpith respect to the earth; but each particle has the same velocity abont the center as if the latter were stationary, and hence the •entrifugal force has no effect upon the weight. 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 right-handed, of d left-handed. 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 right-handed forces posi- tive, and downward or left-handed 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 tie-strut or strut-tie. 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 right-hand 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 left-hand moment, as is also that of P« about o. Right- hand or clockwise moments are conventionally considered as positive, or +t and left-hand or counter-clockwise 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 Pi . c — Pi .0 y 4- Ps . o « -6X7—6X6 + 3X3 - 42 — 30 + 9 =21 ft.-lbs. ^Zy'm. I K — n — • ©i^^o 5*— IF— ^ k- — f ^ 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, W X 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 R- 2 . I '*'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. MOMENTS. 861 In Fig. 7, where W is the weight of the beam itself, and w its leverage, tak- ing moments about b, we have + RZ + O0 — Nn — Ww-|-Mm = 0; Wi£> + Nn — Mm — Oo Hence, Reaction at a R I In any case, if W be the combined weight and G the common center of gravity, of the beam and its several loads, and x the horizontal distance of that center from the right support, h\ and if I be the span, R the reaction of the left support, a, and R' that of the right support, 6, we have R - Wx I W Ifx-|-, Ria-^ -R'. I and R' - W — R. Flff. 7. 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. CLASSIFICATION OF FORCES. 19. Classification of Forces, and Parallel Forces. Concurrent, Colin ear, Coplanar. Forces are called concurrent when their lines of Figr* s. Figr. 9. action meet at one point, as a, b, c, d, e and /, or / and g. Fig. 8 ; non-concur- rent when they do not so meet, as c and g; colinear when their lines of action coincide, as a and b. or c and d; non-colinear 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. ; non-coplanar, as c and g, or 6, / and d, when they do not he in one plane; parallel wnen their lines of action are parallel, as and g\ non-parallel 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. 862 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 leit-hand 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. Fflff. 10. 6 (C) 3 S^ » FI9. 11. 23. Anti-resultant. The anti-resultant 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 anti-resultant 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 anti-resultant of the two downward forces, w and W ; and the downward resultant, W 4- to, of W and to, is the anti-resultant of G. In Fig. 11 (6), G (upward) is the anti-resultant of W (downward) and to (acting upward through the left-hand string). Similarly, this upward pull of tff is the anti-resultant of W and G. 24. In any system of balanced forces (forces in equilibrium), any one of the forces is the anti-resultant of all the rest ; and any two or more of them have, for their resultaht, the anti-resultant of all the rest. In such a system, the resultant (and the anti-resultant) of all the (balanced) forces is zero. 25. Anti-component. The anti-components 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. 363 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 anti-resultuit, or the reaotioii of the ground.

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 end-pott, 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. b h a ■^— f o c Figr. 13. d • 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 right-handed forces must be equal to the sum, ed + dc + co, of the three left-handed forces. Or, con- sidering the right-handed forces, b a and a o, as positive, and the left-handed forces, e dj d c and c o, as negative, as in ^ 10, we have, as the condition of equilibrium of colinear forces : ba •{- ao — oc—'cd — de — O. *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 force parallelogram. a' (a) o "^^^^V* ligr. 14. 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 end-post 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 end-post, 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'*': ♦ See dotted lines, Fig. 17 (a), noting that c* ^ c; c. sin (x + i/) -» R. sin X, and a. sin (x + y) >« K. sin y. 366 STATICS. rt = c sin (x 4- y) R^ Bin X sin X — a si n (x + y) sin y „ = R »>» » sin (x + y)* sin (X -i- 1/)* , . ^, If the angle between the two forces is 90**, Fig. 17 (b), these formulas be< me: come: cos y cos X c — R cos y; a =» R cos x.

If the lines 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. tm /^^MiosS^ nC^T^^^' ^r -s/' Fiir. 18. Fis. 19. 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 non-colinear 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 anti-resultant of the horizontal comp>onent, db, of the oblique thrust in the end-poet B A, at its head, B, which thrust is — the pull in A £, due to P. FORCE TRIAKGLE. 367 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. Fly. 91. 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 anti-resultant 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 anti-resultant, and c o the resultant, ofea and a o; and o c. Fig. 22 (c), is the anti-resultant, 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).* ib) (c) id) (e) ^^ • c e^t, Flff. 33. *Fig. 22 (tO and (e), representing the same two forces, a o, b o, of Fig. 22 (a), show the erroneous resultant (a b) obtained if the lines are drawn with their arrows pointing both toward or both from the meeting-point 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.' 368 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. Fig. 24. Figr- 9Xi, 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: Stress in a « s a e " od = Re It %4 ^'^bA 63. While any two or more given forces, as o 6 and h c. Fig. 26 (a) (arrows reversed), or o b' and b' c,oroa and a c, or o a' and o' c, can nave but one re- 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. SECTANOULAB COMPONENTS. 869 Bectangular Gomponenti. 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 end-post 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 end-post 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. '\ >a 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. 24 btl«rut ofthebBUaCUDBt h« plui«, aod ia (wlled the noimal compon enl.

In Fig. 29. o a »- P . cos e o a a c ■" P . sin e o a 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 sub-components, 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 .// (a) .// ,, (6) ^ / 4 < / f< "-, / 6 -X Flff. 32. 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 sub-components (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 anti-component, 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 sub-components, o a" and o b"j are in equilibrium at o, while the other two sub-components, 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 Co-ordinates. 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 co-ordin- 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 co-ordinates 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 co-ordinaUa, whatever the directions of those co-ordinatee 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 co-ordinates, is zero. Thus, in Fig. 35 (6) or 36, if the sense of R be such that it shall act as the anti-resultant of the other three forces E, F and G, its component, o « or o a, along either co-ordinate, will be found to balance those of the other forces along the same co-ordinate. 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 co-ordinates, may be zero; and yet, if the sum of those along the other co-ordinate 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 co-ordinates, 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. Tig. 37. Tig. 3S. Flip. 39. 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 Anti-resultant. The line, — R, required to com- plete the polygon, represents the an<i-resultant 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 non-concurrent forces, another condition must be satisfied. See ^ 83. tR is here regarded as tending upward, so as to form the anft-resultant 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 anti-resultant of all the rest. Any two or more of the forces balance all the rest ; or, their resultant is the anti-resultant of all the rest. If a line a c or 6 d, Fig. 42, be drawn, connecting any two comers of a force rig. 40. Fiff. 49. polygon, that line represents the resultant, or the anti-resultant (according i its arrow is drawn) of all the forces on either side of it. Thus : a c is the resultant of Pi Ps and the anti-resultant of P3 P4 Pg <5 a " " " Ps P4 Ps * " '* Pi Fa 6 rf " " " Ps Ps " " " P4 P6 Pi d b " •* " P4 Pft Pi " " " Pi P3 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. Tig. 48. Tig. 44. 78. If any two points, as o and c. Fig. 43. be taken, then the force or forces represented by any line or system of lines joining those two points will be equivalent to o c. Thus :oe''oabc'^ode^onpc''ohkmc = on mc '^ o fc " o gc, etc., etc. Similarly, in Fig. 42, the force polygon abe deais equivalent to the force polygon ab fdea, and to the force triangle, abca, eacn being = zero. • Non-concuirent Coplanar Forces. 79. Non-concurrent Coplanar Forces. Fig. 44. The process of finding the resultant of three or more coplanar but non-concurrent forces is the same as if they were concurrent. Thus, let Pi, Ps and Ps represent three sueh forces.* We may first find the resultant Ri of any two of them, as Ps *Apy two coplanar non-parallel forces, as P; and P2, or P^ and Ps are necessarily concurrent (see % 19); but there is no single pomt in which the three forces meet. 376 STATICS. 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 non-concurrent 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 non-concurrent. 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.) Fig. 45. 83. Third Condition of Equilibrium. Hence, equilibrium for concurrent forces, stated in \ 69, the oondHiona of 2 2 vertical horizontal components ■■ components -= do not suffice for non-concurrent 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 non-concuireiit 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 CORD POLYGON. 377 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 foot-note (*), 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 non-ooncurrent forces, and not its position. To find the position of the resultant of non-concurrent 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, Anti-resultant. 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 anti-resultant 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 anti-resultant of the (four) given forces, and we shall have a frame-work 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 anti-resultant 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 anti-resultant, — 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 anti-resultant, — 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 anti-resultant, — 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 aati-resuliant, 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 anti-re- soltant be applied elsewhere, we shall have a couple, composed of the anti- rwnltant, — K, and the resultant R of the forces. 380 STATICS. Concurrent Xon-eoplanar Forces. . 101. Any two of the concurrent forces, as o o and o c. Fig. 47 (a) or (6), are necessarily coplanar. Find their resultant, o r, which must be coplanar with them and witn a third force o h. Then the resultant, R, of o r and o 6 is the resultant of the three forces. If there are other forces, proceed in the same way. 102. No three non-coplanar forces, whether concurrent or not, can be in equilibrium. 103. Force Parallelopiped. The resultant of any three concurrent non-4ioplanar forces, o a, o\ o c. Figs. 47, will be represented by the diagonal a R, of a parallelopiped, of which three converging edges represent the three forces. 104. Methods by Models, (a) For three forces. , Construct a box, Kg. 47 (a) or (6), with three conver^nt edges representing the three- forces in position and amount. Then a stryig o R, joining the proper corners, will represent the resultant. Fig. 47. Or, let ao,ho, c o. Fig. 48 (o), be three forces, meeting at o, "DnM on pasteboard the three forces a o, b o, e o, as in Fig. 48 (6), with their actual angles aob, boc, coa, and find the resultant wooi the middle pair, b o and c o. Cut out neatly the whole figure, a o a c w b a. Make deep knife- scratches along o 6, o c, so that the two outer triangles may be more readily turned at angles to the middle one. Turn them until the two edges o ci^oa meet, and then paste a piece of thin paper along the meeting joint to keep \ \ / w («) (ft) Fig:. 48. («) them in place. Stand the model upon its side o & tp c as a base, and we aball have the slipper shape a ob w. Fig. 48 ic)\o w being the sole, and aob the hollow foot. In the model, the force a o and the resultant to o of the other two forces, are now in their actual relative positions. To find their resultant, cut out a separate piece of pasteboard, R a o to, with R a and R w parallel respectively to w o and a o. Draw upon each side of it the diagonal R o. Paste this piece inside the model, with its lower edge tt; o on the line to o. Fig. 48 (6), and its edge a o in the comer a o. This done, R o represents the re« sultant oia o,b o, c o, Fig. 48 (a), in its actual position relative to them. 105. (b) For four forces, aaa o,bo,co,d o, in Fig. 49. Draw them as in Fig. 40 (a), with their angles aob, boc, etc. Draw also the resultants « o, of c o and b o; and wo,oico and d o. Then out out the entire figiire, as before, and paste together the two edges a o, a o. Hold the model in such a way that two of its jylanea (as a o 6 and boc) form the same angle with each other NON-COPLAXAR FOBCES. 881 as do the two corresponding; planes between the forces. Then we have the two resultants vo^wo, Fig. 49 (6), in their ctctiMl relative poeitiona. Cut out a separate piece of pasteboard R v o w, Fig. 40 (&), draw the diagonal R o on each side of it, and paste it inside the model, with o v and o to on the oorre* sponding lixteB of the model. Then R o will represent the resultant of the four forces, ao^bo,cOtdo, in its actiial position relative to them. The model may be made ol wood, the triangles aobth oc, etc., being cut out separately, the joining edges bevelled, and then glued to«^ther. («) FUr. 49. (*) Non-concurrent Non-coplanar Forces. lOG. Non-concurrent Non-coplanar Forces. Fig. 50 (a). (For par- allel non-coplanar forces, see ^'^ 110, etc.) Resolve each force mto two rec- 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 Non-coplanar Forces. Th<% action of the weight W of the wall. Fig. 51 (a), and of the non-coplanar 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 ■- Pc A + W. — . Here a torsional or twisting stress is exerted in the axle. *Wires, stuck in a board representing the plane, will facilitate this. 382 STATICS. 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 1-ft. slice. Flff. 51. 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 anti-resultant, 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. PABALL£1< FORCES. 383 113* 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 -^. FliT* 93. *-i 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- resultant. \~ — .-.^1^ /^ I x^l y Ftgr. 55. (ft) 115. The position of the resultant, so found, satisfies the condition of equilibrium of moments : thus, h.vi — a.ui « zero. If the two forces are equal, their resultant R is evidently midway between them. 116. In the common steelyard, Fig. 54, the two forces a and &, of Fig. 52 (a), are represented by the two weights, a == 3 pounds at i«, and h =• 1 pound at v, with leverages ui and vi respectively, as 2 : 6, or as 1 : 3. 384 STATICS. It will be noticed that in Fig. 56 (a) the resultant, R, owing to the posi-* tions and amounts of the several forces, falls outside of the system of given forces. 117. Figs. 65 to 58 illustrate the application of the cord polygon (^^ 86 to 100) to coplanar parallel forces. Here the force polygon is necessarily a straight line. Jt a Jft \d _^__y («) Tig, 56. 118.

Then the two segments, w a and X w,^ of X a, give by scale the pressures upon the two supFK>rts, w and x respectivelv. ,The greater pres- sure will of course be upon the support nearest to the load; but we may be guided also by remembering that the segment X w, adjoining the radiv line O X in Fig. (6) represents the pressure on that supi>ort, x, Pig.
