AND BUNGAY, SUFFOLK. EDITORIAL NOTE THE DIRECTLY-USEFUL TECHNICAL SERIES requires a few words by way of introduction. Technical books of the past have arranged themselves largely under two sections : the Theoretical and the Practical. Theoretical books have been written more for the training of- college students than for the supply of information to men in practice, and have been greatly filled with problems of an academic character. Practical books have often sought the other extreme, omitting the scientific basis upon which all good practice is built, whether discernible or not. The present series is intended to occupy a midway position. ,The information, the problems and the exercises are to be of a directly-useful character, but must at the same time be wedded to that proper amount of scientific explanation which alone will satisfy the inquiring mind. We shall thus appeal to all technical people throughout the land, either students or those in actual practice. AUTHOR'S PREFACE CONCERNING the aim and scope of this work nothing need be added here to the statement made in the Preface to the former volume.. It is there asserted that the subject-matter has been so chosen, and, through the examples, so applied to practical problems, that the two volumes " embrace all the mathematical work needed by- engineers in their practice, and by students in all branches of engineering science." As with the first volume, much thought has been given to the elimination of all rules and processes of academic interest only ; but the fact of the importance and necessity of logical reasoning has not been overlooked. With the exception of the chapters on Spherical Trigonometry and Mathematical Probability, this volume is devoted to the study of the Calculus, both Differential and Integral. Whilst it is wise, and even imperative, if this subject is to be presented in an intelligible manner, that much attention should be paid to the graphic interpre- tation of its rules, care must be taken to ensure that the graphic methods do not become other than auxiliaries. Accordingly the treatment throughout is based upon algebraic principles ; but whenever graphic proofs or constructions have been found to amplify or explain the subject, they have been utilised to the fullest extent. Thus from the commencement the connection between the rate of change of a quantity and the slope of a curve is clearly demonstrated : and this correlation of the algebraic and the graphic methods is con- tinued through all the stages of the development of the subject. The conception of " limiting values," mentioned briefly in Part I, is further discussed in Chapter I, a familiar example from Dynamics being chosen as the illustration : in this chapter also two methods of graphic differentiation are given ; the second of which, and the less familiar, being the simpler to apply. viii AUTHOR'S PREFACE The various rules for the differentiation of both algebraic and trigonometric functions are explained in detail in Chapter II ; and Chapter III, containing the rules for the differentiation of a function of a function, a product of functions, etc., together with an introduction to partial differentiation, may be regarded as comple- mentary to Chapter II. From the abstract reasoning required for comprehension of such an idea as that of " limiting values/' the practical mind turns with relief to the applications of differentiation found in Chapter IV ; the determination of maximum and minimum values making a particularly strong appeal. In view of the importance of this branch of the subject, a very varied selection of practical examples is presented, in the choice of which the method of solution has been a determining factor. In this chapter also the use of Taylor's theorem in cases of interpolation from steam tables is demonstrated. Chapters V and VI contain the rules required for the integration of functions occurring in engineering theory and practice. The former chapter serves as an introduction to integration, the signifi- cance of the symbols f and dx being explained by reference to a graph ; whilst in the latter chapter the various types of integrals, many of them of a somewhat complicated character, are discussed. At this stage also the reduction formulae are introduced, and mention is made of the Gamma function and its uses. Instances of the application of the rules of integration are to be found in the processes enumerated in Chapter VII ; and special features of this chapter are the determination of the perimeter of the ellipse, the graphic method for fixing the position of the centroid vertical, the drawing of ist and 2nd moment curves and the evalua- tion of the moment of inertia of a compound vibrator. The utility of polar co-ordinates to the electrical engineer is shown by the inclusion of examples on the candle-powers of lamps, and the employment of the Rousseau diagram to find the mean spherical candle-power ; and Dr. Fleming's graphic method for determina- tion of root mean square values of currents is here inserted, since it involves polar plotting. Differential equations occur so frequently that the methods of solution demand most careful study. Chapter IX presents the most common types, and the selection of examples based upon these, both worked and set, emphasises the need for a proper appreciation of the method of solution. Chapter X, with its applications of the Calculus to problems encountered in the study of Thermodynamics, Strength of Materials, AUTHOR'S PREFACE ix Applied Mechanics, Applied Electricity and Hydraulics, provides further illustration of the need of a sound knowledge of the subject to the engineer desirous of equipping himself at all points. The last two chapters contain much of interest to the surveyor, the examples chosen being such as arise in his practice ; and par- ticular attention is directed to the investigation relating to the corrections following errors of observation. The Author greatly deplores the fact that the inspirer of this work, the late Mr. W. J. LINEHAM, B.Sc., M.I.C.E., does not see its com- pletion : to his enthusiasm for his ideals in education, and for his many personal kindnesses to the Author, tribute is here paid. Sincere thanks are also tendered to Messrs. J. L. BALE and C. B. CLAPHAM, B.Sc., for much valuable assistance. Great care has been taken to produce the book free from errors, but some may remain, notification of which will be esteemed a great favour. W. N. ROSE.

CHAPTER I INTRODUCTION TO DIFFERENTIATION THE seventeenth century will ever be remarkable for the number of great mathematicians that it produced, and still more so for the magnitude of the research accomplished by them. In the early part of the century Napier and Briggs had introduced their systems of logarithms/ whilst Wallis and others directed their thoughts to the quadrature of curves, which they effected in some instances by expansion into series, although the Binomial Theorem was then unknown to them. In 1665 Newton, in his search for the method of quadrature, evolved what he termed to be a system of " fluxions " or flowing quantities : if x and y, say, were flowing quantities, then he denoted the velocity by which each of these fluents increased by x and y respectively. By the use of these new forms he was enabled to determine expressions for the tangents of curves, and also for their radii of curvature. At about the same time Leibnitz of Leipsic, also concerned with the same problem, arrived at practically the same system, although he obtained his tangents by determining " differences of numbers." To Leibnitz is due the introduction of the term " differential," and also the differential notation, viz., dx and dy for the differentials of x and y : he also in his expression for the summation of a number of quantities first wrote the symbol f, his first idea being to employ the word " omnia " or its abbre- viation " omn~." Thus, if summing a number of quantities like x, he first wrote " omnia x," which he contracted to " omn. x," and later he modified this form to fx. Great controversy raged for some time as to the claims of Newton and Leibnitz to be called the inventor of the system of the " Calculus," which is" the generic term for a classified collection of rules; but it is now generally conceded that the discoveries were independent, and were in fact the natural culmination of the research and discoveries of many minds. 3 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS The Calculus was further developed by Euler, Bernoulli, Legendre and many others, but until a very recent date it remained merely " a classified collection of rules" : its true meaning and the wide field of its application were for long obscured. Nowadays, however, a knowledge of the Calculus is regarded, particularly by the engineer, as a vital part of his mental equip- ment : its rules have been so modified as to become no serious tax on the memory, and the true significance of the processes has been presented in so clear a light that the study of the Calculus presents few difficulties even to the ultra-practical engineer. This revolution of thought has been brought about entirely through the efforts of men who, realising the vast potentialities of the Calculus, have reorganised the teaching of the subject : they have clothed it and made it a live thing. The Calculus may be divided into two sections, viz., those treating of differentiation and integration respectively. Differentia- tion, as the name suggests, is that part of the subject which is concerned with differences, or more strictly with the comparison of differences of two quantities. Thus the process of differentia- tion resolves itself into a calculation of rates of change; but the manner in which the rate of change is determined depends on the form in which the problem is stated. Thus, if the given quantities are expressed by the co-ordinates of a curve, the rate of change of the ordinate compared with the change in the abscissa for any particular value of the abscissa is measured by the slope of the curve at the point considered. Differentiation is really nothing more nor less than the deter- mination of rates of change or of slopes of curves. The term " rate of change " does not necessarily imply a " time rate of change," i. e., a rate of change with regard to time, such as the rate at which an electric current is changing per second, or the rate at which energy is being stored per minute; but the change in one quantity may be compared with the change in any other quantity. As an illustration of this fact we may discuss the following example The velocity of a moving body was measured at various distances from its starting point and the results were tabulated, thus s (distance in feet) . o 5 12 v (velocity in feet per sec.) 10 M 15 INTRODUCTION TO DIFFERENTIATION 5 To find the values of the " space rate of change of velocity " for the separate space intervals. Considering the displacement from o to 5 ft., the change in the velocity corresponding to this change of position is 1410, *. e., 4 ft. per sec. change of velocity 1410 4 Hence * .^ = - - = - = -8 change of position 5 o 5 or, the change of velocity per one foot change of position = -8 ft. per sec., and rate of change of velocity = -8 ft. per sec. per foot. Again, if s varies from o to 12, the change of v = 1510 = 5 ; or, the rate of change of velocity (for this period) = T 5 ^ ft. per sec. per foot. Similarly, the rate of change of v, whilst s ranges from 5 to 12, 1514 i ,, , -^ - = - ft. per sec. per foot. 12- 5 7 The rates of change have thus been found by comparing differ- ences. The phrase " change of" occurs frequently in this investi- gation, and to avoid continually writing it a symbol is adopted in its place. The letter thus introduced is 8 (delta), the Greek form of d, the initial letter of the word " difference " : it must be regarded on all occasions as an abbreviation, and hence no operation must be performed upon it that could not be performed if the phrase for which S stands was written in full. In other words, the ordinary rules applying to algebraic quantities, such as multiplication, division, addition or subtraction, would be incorrectly used in conjunction with 8. Thus, mv (the formula for momentum) means m multiplied by v, or a mass multiplied by a velocity, whilst Sv represents " the change of v," or if v is the symbol for velocity, 8v change of velocity. Again, 8/ = change of time or change of temperature, as the case may be. Using this notation our previous statements can be written in the shorter forms : thus (1) As s changes from o to 5 Sv = 1410 = 4 8s = 5-0 = 5 H-* (2) As s changes from o to 12 Sv = 15 10 = 5 8s = 12 o = 12 and !_ y = A Ss 12 * * MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS (3) As s changes from 5 to 12 Sv i and ~=s s= !<: 8v = 15 14 = i Ss = 12 5 = 7 It must be noted that we do not cancel S from the numerator and denominator of the fraction ^-. The final result in (i), viz., ^- = -8, as s changes from o to 5, needs further qualification. From the information supplied we cannot say with truth that the change in the velocity for each foot from o to 5 ft. is -8 ft. per sec. : all that we know with certainty is that, as s changes from o to 5 ft., the average rate of change of velocity over this space period is -8 ft. per sec. Supposing the change of velocity to be continuous over the period considered, the value of ^ already obtained would be the actual rate of change of velocity at some point or points in the period considered. It is usual to tabulate the values of the original quantities and their changes, and unless anything is given to the contrary the average values of the rate of change are written in the middle of the respective periods. The table is set out thus Sv s V Ss Sv Ss IO 5 4 i = -8 5 14 7 i r = '143 12 15 ~~~" ~~ _. To distinguish in writing between average and actual rates of change the notation employed is slightly modified, d being used in dv place of 8 ; -j- thus representing an actual rate of change of velocity, and ^7 representing an average rate of change of velocity. Once again it must be emphasised that d must be treated strictly in association with the v or t, as the case may be, and dt does not mean , , j dv v dxt, nor does -j- give . INTRODUCTION TO DIFFERENTIATION Another example can now be considered to demonstrate clearly the distinction between an average and an actual rate of change. For a body falling freely under the influence of gravity the values of the distances covered to the ends of the ist, 2nd and 3rd seconds of the motion are as in the table t (sees.) . o I 2 3 s (feet) . 16.1 64.4 144.9 Find the average velocities during the various intervals of time, and also the actual velocities at the ends of the ist, 2nd and 3rd seconds respectively. The average velocities are found in the manner described before, i. e., by the comparison of differences of space and time, and the results are tabulated, thus ' ' 5s st v- Ss o 16-1 i 16-1 I 16-1 48-3 i 48-3 2 64-4 80-5 i 80-5 3 144-9 ~~~"~ ~ The average velocities, viz., the values in the last column, are written in the lines between the values of the time to signify that they are the averages for the particular intervals. As also it is known that in this case the velocity is increased at a uniform rate, it is perfectly correct to state that the actual velocities at the ends of -5, 1-5 and 2-5 seconds respectively are given by the average velocities over the three periods and are 16-1, 48-3 and 80-5 ft. per sec. We have thus found the actual velocities at the half seconds, but not those at the ends of the ist, 2nd and 3rd seconds. The determination of these velocities introduces a most important process, illustrating well the elements of differentiation, and in consequence the investigation is discussed in great detail. . The student of Dynamics knows that -the law connecting space and time, in the case of a falling body, is s = \gt z = i6-i/ 2 , and 8 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS a glance at the table of values of s and t confirms this law ; thus, when t = 2, s = 64-4, which = i6-iX2 2 or i6-i^ 2 . To find the actual velocity at the end of the first second we must calculate the average velocities over small intervals of time in the neighbourhood of I sec., and see to what figure these velocities approach as the interval of time is taken smaller and smaller. Thus if t i s = 16-1 x i 2 = 16-1 t = i-i s = 16-1 x i-i 2 = 19-481 8s = 19-481 16-1 = 3-381 U = i-i i = -i \ &s 3-381 and (average) v = ^ = ^- = 33-81 i. e., the average velocity over the interval of time i to i-i sec. is 33-81 ft. per sec. This value must be somewhere near the velocity at the end of the first second, but it cannot be the absolute value, since even in the short interval of time, viz., -i sec., the velocity has been increased by a measurable amount. A better approximation will evidently be found if the time interval is narrowed to -01 sec. Then t i s = 16-1 t = i-oi s = 16-1 X i-oi 2 = 16-42361 Ss = -32361 St = -oi 8s -32361 (average) v = ^ = -^~ = 32-361 A value still nearer to the true will be obtained if the time interval is made -ooi sec. only. t = i s = 16-1 t = i-ooi s = 16-1 X i-ooi 2 = 16-1322161 8s = -0322161 8^ = -ooi 8s -0322161 and (average) v = ^ = ~^^ = 32-2161 By taking still smaller intervals of time, more and more nearly correct approximations would be found for the velocity ; the values of v all tending to 32-2, and thus we are quite justified in saying that when / = i, v = 32-2 ft. per sec. Or, using the language of p. 458 (Mathematics for Engineers, Pt. 1), we state that the limiting value of v as t approaches i is 32-2 ; a result expressed in the shorter form (average) v - 32-2 as 8/ -> o when t = i where the symbol -> means " approaches " but (average) v = , and thus ~ -> 32-2 as St -> o when t = i ot ot INTRODUCTION TO DIFFERENTIATION Again, an actual velocity is an average velocity over an extremely small interval of time ; or, in other words, an actual velocity is the limiting value of an average velocity, so that . (actual) v = (average) v i.e., ds dt st-^-o 8t By similar reasoning it could be proved that the actual velocity at the end of the 2nd second was 64-4 ft. per sec., and at the end of the 3rd second the velocity was 96-6 ft. per sec. This example may usefully be continued a step further, by calculating the values of the acceleration; this being now possible since the velocities are known. Tabulating as before 1 V Sv Si &v a = sl I 32-2 32-2 I 32-2 2 64-4 32-2 I 3 2-2 3 96-6 and we note that the average acceleration is constant and is thus the actual acceleration. Our results may now be grouped together in one table, in which some new symbols are introduced, for the following reason. A velocity is the rate of change of displacement, and is found by " differentiating space with regard to time," and an acceleration is the rate of change of velocity, and hence it is a rate of change of the change of position, and so implies a double differentiation. Thus whilst -T- is called the first derivative or differential coefficient dl) of s with regard to t, -^ is the first derivative of v with regard to t and the second derivative of s with regard to t. TU ds , dv dfds\ ,,.,,, , n Then v = -, , and = TT = -T, -57 , this last form being usually at at at\atj d 2 s written as ^ (spoken as d two s, dt squared) ; and it denotes that the operation of differentiating has been performed twice upon s. 10 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS The complete table of the values of the velocity and the accelera- tion reads s i Ss st _Ss --GO st Sv S*s ~ St ~ SP O o ' 16-1 i 16-1 16-1 i 32-2 i 32-2 48*3 i 48*3 64-4 2 32-2 i 32-2 80-5 i 80-5 144-9 3 _ ~~~ ' The next example refers to a similar case, but is treated from the graphical aspect. Example i. Experiments made with the rolling of a ball down an inclined plane gave the following results t (sees.) o I 2 3 s (cms.) o 20 80 180 Draw curves giving the space, velocity and acceleration respectively at any time during the period o to 3 sees. By plotting the given values, 5 vertically and t horizontally, the " space-time " curve or " displacement " curve is obtained; the curve being a parabola (Fig. i). Select any two points P and Q on the curve, not too far apart, and draw the chord PQ, the vertical QN and the horizontal PN. Then the slope of the chord PQ = Now PN may be written as St since it represents a small addition to the value of t at P : also QN = 8s, 8s so that slope of chord PQ = ^ but ^ average velocity between the times OM and OR, hence Of the average velocity is measured by the slope of a chord. Now let Q approach P, then the chord PQ tends more and more to lie along the tangent at P, and by taking Q extremely close to P the chord PQ and the tangent at P are practically indistinguishable INTRODUCTION TO DIFFERENTIATION ir the one from the other; whilst in the limit the two lines coincide. go Then since the slope of the chord PQ gives the value of ~ , and ot the limiting value of 7 is -^ , it follows that the slope of the tangent ot (it expresses -^ ; but the slope of a curve at any point is measured .30 1-5 2-O Values of hmc FIG. i. 2-5 by the slope of its tangent at that point, and hence we have evolved the most important principle, viz., that differentiation is the deter- mination of the slopes of curves. [Incidentally it may be remarked that here is a good illustration of the work on limiting values ; for the slope of a curve, or of the tangent to the curve, is the limiting value of the slope of the chord, *'. e., the value found when the extremities of the chord coincide; and this value does not take the indeterminate form C) , as might at o first sight be supposed, but is a definite figure.] 12 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS Thus the slope of the tangent at any point on the space-time curve measures the actual rate of change of the space with regard to time at that particular instant; or, in other words, the actual velocity at that instant. Hence by drawing tangents to the space- time curve at various points and calculating the slopes, a set of values of the velocity is obtained : these values are then plotted to a base of time and a new curve is drawn, which gives by its ordinate the value of the velocity at any time and is known as the " velocity-time " curve. Since this curve is obtained by the calculation of slopes, or rates of change, it is designated a derived or slope curve; the original curve, viz., the space-time curve, being termed the primitive. In the case under notice the velocity-time curve is a sloping straight line, and in consequence its slope is constant, having the value 40. Hence the derived curve, which is the acceleration-time curve, is a horizontal line, to which the ordinate is 40. There are thus the three curves, viz., the primitive or space-time curve, the first derived curve or the velocity-time curve, and the second derived curve or the acceleration-time curve. Graphic Differentiation. The accurate construction of slope curves is a most tedious business, for the process already described necessitates the drawing of a great number of tangents, the calcu- lations of their respective slopes and the plotting of these values. There are, however, two modes of graphic differentiation, both of which give results very nearly correct provided that reasonable care is taken over their use. Method i (see Fig. 2). Divide the base into small elements, the lengths of the elements not being necessarily alike, but being so chosen that the parts of the curve joining the tops of the con- secutive ordinates drawn through the points of section of the base are, as nearly as possible, straight lines. Thus, when the slope of the primitive is changing rapidly, the ordinates must be close together; and when the curve is straight for a good length, the ordinates may be placed well apart. Choose a pole P, to the left of some vertical OA, the distance OP being made a round number of units, according to the horizontal scale. Erect the mid-ordinates for all the strips. Through P draw PA parallel to ab, the first portion of the curve, and draw the horizontal Ac to meet the mid-ordinate of the first strip in c. Then dc measures, to some scale, the slope of the chord ab, and therefore the slope of the tangent to the primitive INTRODUCTION TO DIFFERENTIATION 13 curve at m, or the average slope of the primitive from a to b, with reasonable accuracy. Continue the process by drawing PM parallel to bl and Ms horizontal to meet the mid-ordinate of the second strip in s : then cs is a portion of the slope or derived curve. Repeat the operations for ah 1 the strips and draw the smooth curve through the points c, s, etc. : then this curve is the curve of slopes. FIG. 2. Graphic Differentiation, Method i. Indicate a scale of slope along a convenient vertical axis and the diagram is complete : the scale of slope being the old vertical scale divided by the polar distance expressed in terms of the horizontal units. E. g., if the original vertical scale is i" = 40 ft. Ibs. and the horizontal scale is i" = 10 ft. : then, if the polar distance p is taken as 2", i. e., as 20 horizontal units, the new vertical scale, or scale of slope, is i" = ^ ' 2 Ibs. 20 ft. Proof of the construction. The slope of the primitive curve at m = slope of curve ab = bf = OA. = cd ~af~ p " p 14 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS or, the ordinate dc, measured to the old scale, = p x the slope of the curve at m. If, then, the original vertical scale is divided by p the ordinate dc, measured to the new scale, = slope of the curve at m. The great disadvantage of this method is that parallels have to be drawn to very small lengths of line and a slight error in the setting of the set square may quite easily be magnified in the draw- ing of the parallel. Hence, for accuracy, extreme care in draughts- manship is necessary. It should be observed that this method of graphic differentiation is the converse of the method of graphic integration described in FIG. 3. Graphic Differentiation, Method 2. Chapter VII (Part I), and referred to in greater detail in Chapter V of the present volume. Method 2. Let ABC (Fig. 3) be the primitive curve. Shift the curve ABC forward to the right a horizontal distance sufficiently large to give a well-defined difference between the curves DEF and ABC ; but the horizontal distance, denoted by h, must not be great. From the straight line base OX set up ordinates which give the differences between the ordinates of the curves ABC and DEF, the latter curve being treated as the base : thus ab = a'b'. Join the tops of the ordinates so obtained to give the new curve G6H, and shift the curve G6H to the left a horizontal distance = -, this operation giving the curve MPN, which is the true slope or derived curve of the primitive ABC. Complete the diagram by adding a scale of slope, which is the old vertical scale divided by h (expressed in horizontal units). INTRODUCTION TO DIFFERENTIATION This method can be still further simplified by the use of tracing paper, thus : Place the tracing paper over the diagram and trace the curve ABC upon it; move the tracing paper very carefully forward the requisite amount, viz., h, and with the dividers take the various differences between the curves, such as a'b'. Step off these differences from OX as base, but along ordinates - units re- 45 moved to the left of those on which the differences were actually measured : then draw the curve through the points and this is the slope curve.

The temperature of the field coils of a motor was measured at various times during the passage of a strong current, with the following results Time (mins.) . o 5 10 15 20 25 3 35 40 45 50 55 60 65 Temperature (C.) 20 26 32-5 4i 46 49 52-5 54-5 56-5 58 59-5 61 61-7 62 Draw a curve to represent this variation of temperature, and a curve to show the rate at which the temperature is rising at any instant during the period of 65 mins. The values of the temperature when plotted to a base of time give the primitive curve in Fig. 30. i6 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS To draw the slope curve we first divide the base in such a way that the portions of the curve between consecutive ordinates have the same inclination for the whole of their lengths, i. e., the elements of the curve are approximately straight lines. Thus, in the figure, there is no appreciable change of slope between A and a, or a and d. There is no need to draw the ordinates through the points of section for their full lengths, since the intersections with the primitive curve are all that is required. Next a pole P is chosen, 20 horizontal units to the left of A, and through P the line PB is drawn parallel to the portion of the curve Aa. A horizontal B6 cuts the mid-ordinate of the first strip at b, and 6 is a point on the slope or derived curve. The processes repeated for the second strip, PC being drawn parallel to ad and Cc drawn horizontal to meet the mid-ordinate of the second strip in c, which is thus a second point on the slope curve. A smooth curve through points such as b and c is the slope curve, giving by its ordinates the rate of increase of the temperature ; and it will be observed that the rate of increase is diminished until at the end of 65 mins. the rate of change of temperature is zero, thus indicating that at the end of 65 mins. the losses due to radiation just begin to balance the heating effect of the current. Since the polar distance = 20 units, the scale of slope _ original vertical scale 20 and in the figure the original vertical scale is i" = 20 units ; hence the scale of slope is i" = i unit; and this scale is indicated to the right of the diagram. Example 3. Plot the curve y = x"-, x ranging from o to 3, and use Method 2 to obtain the derived curve. The values for the ordinates of the primitive curve y x"- are as in the table X o I 2 3 y o I 4 9 and the plotting of these gives the curve OAB in Fig. 4. Choosing h as -5 horizontal unit, the curve is first shifted forward this amount, and the curve CG results. The vertical differences be- tween these two curves are measured, CG being regarded as the base curve, and are then set off from the axis of x as the base. Thus when x 3, the ordinate of the curve OAB is 9 units, and that of CG is 6-25, so that the difference is 2-75, and this is the ordinate of the curve MN. By shifting the curve MN to the left by a distance = , i. e., -25 hori- zontal unit, the true slope curve ODE is obtained : this is a straight INTRODUCTION TO DIFFERENTIATION 17 line, as would be expected since the primitive curve is a " square " parabola. As regards the scale of slope, the new vertical scale _ old vertical scale, and since h = -5, the new vertical scale, or scale of slope, which is used when measuring ordinates of the curve ODE, is twice the original vertical scale. The derived curve supplies much information about the primi- tive. Thus, when the ordinate of the derived curve is zero, i. e., when the derived curve touches or cuts the horizontal axis, the O -5 / 1-5 2. 2-5 FIG. 4. Graphic Differentiation. slope of the primitive is zero; but if the slope is zero the curve must be horizontal, since it neither rises nor falls, and this is the case at a turning point, either maximum or minimum. Hence turning points on the primitive curve are at once indicated by zero ordinates of the slope curve. Again, a positive ordinate of the derived curve implies a positive slope of the primitive, and thus indicates that in the neighbourhood considered the ordinate increases with increase of abscissa. Also a large ordinate of the slope curve indicates rapid change of ordinate of the primitive with regard to the abscissa. This last fact suggests another and a more important one. By a careful examination of the primitive curve we see what is actually c iS MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS happening, whilst the slope curve carries us further and tells us what is likely to happen. In fact, the rate at which a quantity is changing is very often of far greater importance than the actual value of the quantity; and as illustrations of this statement the following examples present the case clearly. Example 4. The following table gives the values of the displacement of a 21 knot battleship and the weight of the offensive and defensive factors, viz., armament, armour and protection.

This di) the average value for ~~, over the range considered, is average value of the rate of change does not, however, give as much information for our immediate purpose as the separate rates of change considered over the various small increases in the displacement.

" By tabulating the corresponding values of q and Q and calculating the values of i, we obtain the following table (the values of Q at 19000, 21000, etc., being found from a separate plotting not shown here) 20 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS p 19000 21000 23000 25000 27000 29OOO p 485 490 495 495 505 5125 Q 387 396 405 .412 419 426 q g 1-253 1-236 1-223 1-202 1-203 I-2O4 It will be seen by examination of this table that the fraction Q decreases as ships are made larger : in other words, while the arma- ment increases with the displacement, the increase is not so great as it should be for the size of the ship, since the weight of the necessary engines, etc., is greater in proportion to the weight of armament and protection for the larger than for the smaller ships. Thus, other things being equal, beyond a certain point it is better to rely on a greater number of smaller ships than a few very large ones. Example 5.

Next, the slope curves for the two cases are drawn, Method 2 being employed, but the intermediate steps are not shown. The curve /// is the slope curve for LLL, and ddd that for the curve DDD. It will be observed that in both cases the rate of loss is great at the commencement, but decreases to a minimum value after 20 days exposure in the case of t the curve ///, and after 25 days in the case of the curve ddd.

It has been shown in Chapter I how to compare the changes in two quantities with one another, and thus to determine the rate at which one is changing with regard to the other at any particular instant, for cases in which sets of values of the two variables have been stated. In a great number of instances, however, the two quantities are connected by an equation, indicating that the one depends upon the other, or, in other words, one is a function of the other. Thus if y = 5# 3 , y has a definite value for each value given to %, and this fact is expressed in the shorter form y =f(x). Again, if z ijx^y^xy 3 +5 log y> where both x and y vary, z depends for its values on those given to both x and y, and z f(x, y). To differentiate a function it is not necessary to calculate values of x and y and then to treat them as was done to the given sets of values in the previous chapter. This would occasion a great waste of time and would not give absolutely accurate results. Rules can be developed entirely from first principles which permit the differentiation of functions without any recourse to tables of values or to a graph. We now proceed to develop the first of the rules for the differen- tiation of functions ; and we shall approach the general case, viz., that of y ax n , by first considering the simple case of y = x 3 . Our problem is thus to find the rate at which y changes with regard to x, the two variables (y the dependent and x the independent variable or I.V.) being connected by the equation y = x s . The rate of change of y with regard to x is given by the value dv of -j-, and this is sometimes written as Dy when it is clearly understood that differentiation is with regard to x : the operator D having many important properties, as will be seen later in the book. If y is expressed as f(x), then -p is often written JfQ fix dx or /'(*). 26 DIFFERENTIATION OF FUNCTIONS 27 ~, Dy, -^-* or f'(x) is called the derivative or differential coefficient of y with respect to x; and the full significance of the latter of these terms is shown in Chapter III. We wish to find a rule giving the actual rate of change of y with regard to x, y being = x 3 , the rule to be true for all values of x. As in the earlier work, the actual rate of change must be determined as the limiting value of the average rate of change. Let x be altered by an amount Sx so that the new value of x = x -f- 8x ; then y, which depends upon x, must change to a new value y + Sy, and since the relation between y and x is y x 3 for all values of x (new value of y) = (new value of x) 3 or y+Sy = (x+Sx) 3 = ,r 3 +3# 2 . 8x+$x . (Sx) 2 +($x) 3 (i) but y = x 3 ........... (2) Hence, by subtraction of (2) from (i) y+Sy-y = 3 * 2 . Sx+3x(Sx) 2 +(Sx) 3 and Sy = $x 2 . Sx+3x(Sx) 2 +(Sx) 3 . Divide through by Sx, and Thus an average value for the rate of change over a small interval Sx has been found; and to deduce the actual rate of change the interval Sx must be reduced indefinitely. Let Sx=-ooi; then ^ = 3* 2 + (3* X-ooi) + -000001 -oooooi whilst if 8x = -ooooi jh_j :- = 3# 2 -f -00003^;+ -oooooooooi . (3) Evidently, by still further reducing &x the 2nd and 3rd terms of (3) can be made practically negligible in comparison with the ist term. Then, in the limit, the right-hand side becomes 3* 2 , and thus- ^ = T f = 3 * 2 dx i ^Sx dx- = * X 28 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS This relation can be interpreted graphically in the following manner : If the curve y = x s be plotted, and if also its slope curve be drawn by either of the methods of Chapter I, then the equation to the latter curve is found to be y = $x 2 . The two curves are plotted in Fig. 7. 10 01234 X FIG. 7. Primitive and Slope Curves. Example i. Find the slope of the curve y x 3 when x = 4. dy dx 3 o The slope of the curve = -v 1 = -j = 3* CLX CLX and if x = 4 -,- = 3 X 4 2 = 48. Meaning that, in the neighbourhood of x 4, the ordinate of the curve y = x 3 is changing 48 times as fast as the abscissa ; this fact being illustrated by Fig. 7. Working along the same lines, it would be found that -jj = dx 5 -y- himself). and -- = 5# 4 (the reader is advised to test these results for DIFFERENTIATION OF FUNCTIONS 29 Re-stating these relations in a modified form dx 3 - = 4^ = 4* ft* We note that in all these cases the results take the form dx n - = nx n ~ \ dx Thus the three cases considered suggest a general rule, but it would be unwise to accept this as the true rule without the more rigid proof, which can now be given. Proof of the rule dx n -M Vtt ~~ * - /(vV ax Let y = x n , this relation being true for all values of x . (i) If x is increased to x-}-8x, y takes a new value y-f-Sy, and from (i) it is seen that y-|-Sy = (x+8x) n . Expand (x-\-8x) n by the Binomial Theorem (see p. 463, Part I). Then Subtract (i) from (2), and Divide by 8^ 8v , , n(ni) 0/c . , , (w i)(n 2) M ,/ \ 9 , --=^n-i4- v --- 'x n - 2 (8x)-\ s 'x n - 3 (8x) 2 -t- terms 8,r |_2 |_3 containing products of (Sx} 3 and higher powers of (8x). Let 8* be continually decreased, and then, since Sx is a factor of the second and all succeeding terms, the values of these terms can be made as small as we please by sufficiently diminishing Sx. 30 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS Thus in the limit f- -> n x n - * Sx dv or -- Id Hence the first rule for differentiation of functions is established, viz. i. e., differentiation lowers the power of the I.V. by one, but the new power of x must be multiplied by the original exponent. The reason for the multiplication by the n can be readily seen, for the bigger the value of n the steeper is the primitive curve and therefore the greater the change of y for unit change of x. The n actually determines the slope of the primitive (cf. Part I, p. 340), and it must therefore be an important factor in the result of differentiation, since that operation gives the equation of the slope curve. To make the rule perfectly general, aUowance must be made for the presence of the constant multiplier a in ax n . It will be agreed that if the curve y = x 3 had been plotted, the curve y = ^x 3 would be the same curve modified by simply multiplying the vertical scale by 4. Hence, in the measurement of the slope, the vertical increases would be four times as great for the curve y = 4# 3 as for the curve y = x 3 , provided that the same horizontal increments were considered. Now the slope of the curve y = x 3 is given by the equation dy - ix* dx~ 3X so that the slope of the curve y = ^x 3 is given by ^ = 4x3*2 = I2x 2 . In other words, the constant multiplier 4 remains a multiplier throughout differentiation. This being true for any constant factor j-ax a = nax H-l dx* Accordingly, a constant factor before differentiation remains as such after differentiation. We can approach the differentiation of a multinomial expression DIFFERENTIATION OF FUNCTIONS by discussing the simple case y = $x 2 + 17 (a binomial, or two- term expression). The curves y = $x 2 and y = $x 2 + 17 are seen plotted in Fig. 8, and an examination shows that the latter curve is the former moved vertically an amount equal to 17 vertical units, i. e., the two curves have the same form or shape and consequently their slopes at corresponding points are alike. Thus if a tangent is drawn to each curve at the point for which x = 2-5, the slope of each tangent is measured as , i.e., 25; and con- sequently the diagram informs us that the term 17 makes no difference to the slope. JOO. FIG. 8. Thus dx- Now, by differentiating 5# 2 dx^ 17 term by term, we have since 17 is a constant and does not in any way depend upon x, and therefore its rate of change must be zero. It is seen that in this simple example it is a perfectly logical procedure to differentiate term by term and then add the results; and the method could be equally well applied to all many-term expressions. 32 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS Hence j x (ax n +bx n ~' i +cx n - 2 + . . . d) = nax n ~ l +b(n i)x n ~ 2 +c(n 2)x n ~ 3 + . . . and ^ x (ax a -{-b) = nax"- 1 .

DIFFERENTIATION OF FUNCTIONS 35 Now the curve ODE is the curve MN shifted back a distance of - horizontal units, and hence its equation is y 3 = z(x-\ jh h 2 , 2 \ ^/ since for x we must now write f x-\\ Thus the equation of curve ODE is y 3 = 2xh y or ~ = 2x h A/ i. e., if Y be written for ~, Y = 2x or the equation of the curve ODE is that of the slope curve of the curve y ~ x 2 provided that the ordinates are read to a certain scale; this scale being the original vertical scale divided by h expressed in horizontal units. Hence the curve ODE is the slope curve of the curve OAB. Before discussing the general case, let us take the case of the primitive with equation y = x 3 . If the curve be shifted forward an amount = h, the equation of the new curve is yi = (x-W and the equation of the curve giving the differences of the ordinates is y 2 = y y^-x 3 (x h) 3 = x 3 By shifting this curve - units to the left we change its equation, by writing (x-\ J in 'place of x, into the form Dividing by h h 4 or Y = 3* 2 +- 36 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS h z Now if h is taken sufficiently small, is negligible in comparison with 3# 2 , and we thus have the equation of the curve Y = 3# 2 , which is the slope curve of the curve y = x 3 ; but the ordinates must be measured to the old vertical scale divided by h.

The total distributed load is wl, i.e., 24X-I = 2-4 tons, giving equal reactions of 1-2 tons at A and B; and the bending moment diagram is a parabola with vertex at D, the maximum ordinate DF being -5-, i. e., Q or 7-2 tons ft. If for convenience in the later working the axes of x and y are as shown in the figure, the equation to this parabola is y 2 = <\ax; or taking the value of y as FB and that of x as DF, 1 22 = 40x7- 2, from which 40 = 20 and y 2 = 20*.

The load of 3-5 tons produces reactions of X3*5 tons at B, 2 4 and x 3-5 tons at A, i. e., R B = 3-06 and R A = -44 tons : thus the 2 4 bending moment at E is 3-06x3 = 9-18 tons ft. Since the total bending moment is obtained by adding the ordinates of the diagram ADB to the corresponding ordinates of ACB, the maximum bending moment will be determined when the tangent to the parabola is parallel to AC, and the position satisfying this condition can readily be found by differentiation. Thus The equation of the curve ADB is y 2 = 20* or y = 4-47**, and the slope of the curve is given by the value of -~.

To find the maximum bending moment DR = **/^v*" = -956 \ 42 / PQ = DF-DR = 7-2--96 = 6-24 tons ft. Also ^jLp = X9-i8 = 7-16 tons ft. Hence the maximum bending moment = 7-16+6-24 13-4 tons ft.

The rule for differentiation already given applies only to functions involving the I.V. (usually the x) raised to some power. A method must now be found for the differentiation of exponential functions, viz., those in which the I.V. appears as exponent ; such as e 5x or 4*. When concerned with the plotting of the curve y = e* (see Part I, p. 352) mention was made of the fact that, if tangents are drawn to the curve at various points, the slopes of these tangents are equal to the ordinates to the primitive curve at the points at which the tangents touch the curve. Thus the slope curve of the curve y = e x lies along the primitive, and **-- 6* dx ~ or the rate of change of the function is equal to the value of the function itself. We may establish the result algebraically thus X % 3C e x = i-\-x-\ --- [- 1.21.2.31.2.3.4 Assuming that a series composed of an unlimited number of terms can be differentiated term by term and the results added to give the true derivative (this being true for all the cases with which we shall deal), then by differentiation de x _ ~ f x 3 = e x . Another respect in which the function e? is unique may be 48 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS dx i noted : the sub-tangerit = y-,- -- e x x = i, i. e., the sub-tangent is constant and equal to unity. The curve y = e x may be usefully employed as a gauge or template for testing slopes of lines; the curve being drawn on tracing-paper and moved over the line to be tested until the curve and line have the same direction, and the ordinate of the curve being then read, any necessary change of scales being afterwards made. The work may now be carried a stage further, so that the rule for the differentiation of e bx may be found. Referring to Part I, p. 354, we note that if the curve y = e x be plotted, then this curve represents also the equation y = e bx if the numbers marked along the horizontal scale used for the curve y = e x are divided by b. If, then, the slope of the construction curve, i. e., that having the equation y = e x , is measured, we can obtain from it the slope of the curve y e bx by multiplying the slope by b, since vertical distances are unaltered, whilst horizontal distances in the case of y = e bx are T X corresponding horizontal distances for y = e x . Hence the slope of the curve y = e bx is b X slope of curve y = e x r\pbx or -p- = be bx It should be noticed that the power of the function remains the same after differentiation, but the multiplier of the I.V. becomes after differentiation a multiplier of the function. This latter rule must be remembered throughout differentiation, viz., any multiplier or divisor of the I.V. in the function to be differentiated must become a multiplier or divisor of the function after differentiation. From e bx we can proceed to ae bx , the result from the differentia- tion of which is given by dae bx dx = abe bx Example 15. If y = yrk* t find the value of -f~ dx -/- = ^~5e~b x = 5 X T&~^ X dx dx j 6 DIFFERENTIATION OF FUNCTIONS 49 Referring to the last example, note that the power of e is exactly the same after differentiation as before : the factor ^ multiplies the I.V. in the original function, and therefore it occurs as a constant multiplier after differentiation; also the constant factor 5 remains throughout differentiation. Example 16. If C = C e L, where C and C are electrical currents, R is the resistance of a circuit, L is the self-inductance of the circuit and t is a time, find the time-rate of change of C. This example illustrates the importance of the rate of change as compared with the change itself; for it demonstrates the fact that for an inductive circuit the change of current is often extremely rapid and consequently dangerous.

To better illustrate the example, take the case for which the current at the instant of removal of the E.M.F. is 14-5 amps., the resistance of the circuit is 6-4 ohms, and its self-inductance - oo6 henry. Then the rate of change of the current = -- ^ X 14-5 = 15470 amps. *ooo per second, whereas the actual current is only 14-5 amps.

Find an expression for -J-. Differentiation of the Trigonometric Functions. Before proceeding to establish the rules for the differentiation of sin x and cos x, it is well to remind ourselves of two trigonometric relations which are necessary for the proofs of these rules, viz. (a) When the angle is small, its sine may be replaced by the angle itself expressed in radians, i. e. T sm6 = T (cf part ^ p 458)> (b) sin A-sin B = 2 cos sin - ( c f. p ar t I, p. 285). \ 2 / 2 To find -v- sin x we proceed as in former cases ; thus Let y = sin # and y+8y = sin (#-f 8#) then 8y y -\-8y-y = sin (x-\-8x)sin x (2x+8x\ = 2 cos ( - sin \ 2 / Dividing through by 8x _ 2 COS \ ~~ / OAII i 8y V 2 / \2 /2^+8^\ . /Bx\ I sin ( J 8* 8x (2x+%x\ f8x^ COS ( I sin I t\ (8X\ - ) sm ( I / \2/ DIFFERENTIATION OF FUNCTIONS 57 The limiting value of ?- is --. and that of the right-hand side is cos x, since cos ( x-\ J approaches more and more nearly to cos x as 8* is made smaller and smaller, and the limiting value of /sin \ / 2 \ .,,.,., sin 9 .

By similar reasoning the derivative of cos x may be obtained ; its value being given by The graphs of the sine and cosine curves assist towards the full appreciation of these results. In Fig. 14 the two curves are plotted, and it is noted that the cosine curve is simply the sine curve shifted backwards along the horizontal axis : thus the slope curve and the primitive have exactly the same shape. This condition also holds for the primitive curve y = e? 1 , and so suggests that there must be some connection between these various natural functions; and further reference to this subject is made later in the book. 58 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS Much trouble is caused by the presence of the minus sign in d COS OC the relation -5 = sin x, it being rather difficult to remember whether the minus sign occurs when differentiating sin x or cos x. A mental picture of the curves, or the curves themselves, may be used as an aid in this respect. The cosine and sine curves differ in phase by period (see Fig. 14), but are otherwise identical. Treating y = sin x as the primitive : when x is small, sin x and x are very nearly alike, and thus the slope of the curve here is i; as x increases from o to - the slope of the curve continually 7T diminishes until at x = - the slope of the curve is zero. Now the ordinate of the cosine curve when x = o is unity, and it diminishes until at x = ~ it is zero. From x = ~ to x = -n- the 2 2 slope of the sine curve is negative, but increases numerically to I, this being the value when x = TT; and it may be observed that the ordinates of the cosine curve give these changes exactly, both as regards magnitude and sign. Thus the cosine curve is the slope curve of the sine curve. Now regard the cosine curve as the primitive. At x = o the curve is horizontal and the slope = o ; from x = o to x = ~ the 2 slope increases numerically, but is negative, reaching its maximum negative value, viz., i, at x = - ; but the ordinates of the sine 2 curve are all positive from x = o to x = ~, so that although these 2 ordinates give the slope of the curve as regards magnitude, they give the wrong sign. In other words, the sine curve must be folded over the axis of x to be the slope curve of the cosine curve, i. e., the curve y = sin x is the slope curve of the curve y = COS X. To summarise, we can say that the derived curve for the sine curve or for the cosine curve is the curve itself shifted back along the axis a horizontal distance equal to one-quarter of the period. Thus we can say at once that the slope curve of the curve y = sin (x-\-b) is the curve y cos (.r+fr), since the curve y = sin (x+b) is the simple sine curve shifted along the horizontal axis an amount given by the value of b, the amplitude and period being unaltered. DIFFERENTIATION OF FUNCTIONS 59 Thus -,- sin (x+b) = cos (x+b) and, in like manner j x cos (x+b) = - sin (x+b). Again, -7- sin (5#+6) = 5 cos (5#+6), since 5 multiplies the I.V. in the original function. Then in general ?- A sin (Bx+C) = AB cos (Bx+C) -? A cos (Bx+C) = AB sin (Bx+C).

We can now make a more strict examination of simple harmonic motion. Suppose a crank of length r (see Fig. 15), starting from the position OX, rotates at a constant angular velocity <o in a right-handed direction. Let it have reached the position OA after t seconds have elapsed from the start; then the angle passed through in this interval of time = AOM = <&t, since the angular distance covered in I sec. = o> radians and the angular distance in t seconds = a>t radians. DIFFERENTIATION OF FUNCTIONS 61 Considering the displacement along the horizontal axis, the dis- placement in time t = s = OM = AO cos AOM = r cos tat. ds Then the velocity = , , = rXta sin tat = rta sin <at and the acceleration = ,, = at cos tat = ta z xr cos wt = 0) 2 S *'. e., the acceleration is proportional to the displacement, but is directed towards the centre : thus, when the displacement from the centre increases, the acceleration towards the centre increases. When the displacement is greatest, the acceleration is greatest : e. g., if the crank is in the position OX, the acceleration has its maximum value wV and is directed towards the centre, just destroying the outward velocity, which at X is zero. At O the acceler- ation = u> 2 x o = o, or the velocity is here a maximum. An initial lag or lead of the crank does not affect the truth of the foregoing FlG r . connection between acceleration and displacement. The equation of the motion is now s = r cos where c is the angle of lag or lead, and the differentiation to find the velocity and the acceleration is as before. Example 25. If s 5 sin 4* 12 cos \t, show that this is the equation of a S.H.M. and find the angular velocity. s = 5 sin ift 12 cos 4^. Then v = , $ = (5 x 4 cos 4*) (12 x 4 X sin 4*).

Now, in S.H.M., the acceleration = 2 s. &> 2 = 16, i. e., w = angular velocity = 4 radians per sec. 62 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS This last question might be treated rather differently by first expressing 5 sin 4^12 cos 4^ in the form Msin(4^+c) (see Part I, p. 276) and then differentiating. This method indicates that a S.H.M. may be composed of two simple harmonic motions differing in phase and amplitude. Exercises 5. On the Differentiation of Trigonometric Functions.

CHAPTER III ADDITIONAL RULES OF DD7FERENTIATION Differentiation of a Function of a Function. \Vhilst the expression e sin 4 * is essentially a function of x, it can also be spoken of as a function of sin 4*, which in turn is a function of x; and thus it is observed that e aa ** is a function of a function of x. This fact will be seen more clearly, perhaps, if u is written in place of sin 4* : thus e sin ** = e w , which is a function of u, which, again, is a function of x, since u = sin 4*. To differentiate a function of a function the following rule is employed dy_=dy x du dx du dx \ and this rule is easily proved. Let y be a function of u, and let u be a function of x : then y is a function of a function of x. Now increase # by a small amount 8x; then since u depends on x, it takes a new value u + 8u, and also the new value of y becomes y + Sy. Since these changes are measurable quantities, although small, the ordinary rules of arithmetic can be applied, so that 8y __Sy 8u_ Sx~Su X Sx When Sx approaches zero these fractions approach the limiting values -, and - respectively : and thus in the limit ax du dx dy _ dy du dx du dx In like manner, if y is a function of u, u a function of w, and w a function of x, it can be proved that dy_dy..du_dw dx~du x dw x dx 63 64 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS It will be observed that on the right-hand side of the equation we have dy as the first numerator and dx as the last denominator (these giving in conjunction the left-hand side of the equation) ; and we may regard the other numerators and denominators as neutralising one another. The simple arithmetic analogy may help to impress the rule upon the memory : thus Example i . If y = e 8to tx , find the value of ~ . dit Let u = sin 4*, so that j- = 4 cos 4* and y = e u .

Differentiation of Inverse Trigonometric Functions. Since inverse trigonometric functions occur frequently in the study of the Integral Calculus, it is necessary to demonstrate the rules for their differentiation; and in view of their importance in the later stages of the work, the results now to be deduced should be carefully studied. The meaning of an inverse trigonometric function has already been explained (see Part I, p. 297), so that a reminder only is ADDITIONAL RULES OF DIFFERENTIATION 77 needed here.

When dealing with the equation PV = CT in connection with the theory of heat engines, we know that C alone is a constant, P, V and T being variables. If one of these variables has a definite value, the individual values of the others are not thereby determined ; e. g., assuming that C and T are known, then so also is the product PV, but not the individual values of P and V. If, now, the value of one of these is fixed, say of P, then the value of V can be calculated : therefore V depends on both P and T, and any change in V may be due to a change in either or both of the other variables. To find the change in the value of V consequent on changes in values of P and T, 8o MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS the change in V due to the change in P (assuming that T is kept constant) is added to the change in V due to the change in T (P being kept constant). Rates of change found according to this plan are spoken of as partial rates of change, or more usually partial derivatives, and the process of determining them is known as partial differentiation. When only two variables occur, a plane curve may be plotted to depict the connection between them, but for three variables a surface is needed. The three co-ordinate axes will be mutually at FIG. 20. right angles, two in the plane of the paper, and the other at right angles to it. If x, y and z are the variables, we can say that z is a function of x and y, or, in the abbreviated form z = f(x, y). Similarly x = f(y, z) and y = f(x, z). Dealing with the first of these forms, and assuming the axes of x and y to be horizontal (Fig. 20), let us examine, from the aspect of the graph, the significance of this form. Giving any value to x, we know the distance of the point in front of or behind the paper : the value of y determines the distance to the right or left of the axis of z, i. e. t the vertical on which the point lies is ADDITIONAL RULES OF DIFFERENTIATION 81 determined and the actual height up this vertical is fixed by the value of z. If z is kept constant whilst values of x and y are chosen, a number of points are found all lying on a horizontal plane, and if all such points are joined we have what is known as a contour line. Therefore, if one of the quantities is constant our work is confined to one plane; but we have already seen that when dealing with a plane, the rate of change of one quantity with regard to another is measured by the slope of a curve, hence we can ascribe a meaning to a partial derivative. To illustrate by reference to a diagram (Fig. 20). The point P on the surface is fixed by its co-ordinates x, y and z, or SQ, OS and QP. If x is kept constant, the point must lie on the plane LTND. The slope of the curve LPT, as given by the tangent of the angle PMN, must measure the rate of change of z with regard to y when x is constant; and this is what we have termed the partial derivative of z with regard to y. This partial derivative may be expressed by -, or, more conveniently, by ( -j- ) , and if there is no possibility of ambiguity as to the quantity kept constant the suffix x may be dispensed with. fdz\ nn TXT (the slope being negative, since z (-=-)= tan L PMN v \ay] decreases as y increases). Similarly, the slope of the curve KPH _ /fe\ \dx)' If the variables are connected by an equation, the partial derivatives can be obtained by the use of the ordinary rules of differentiation. Example 16. Given that z \ (dz )' (dy dz\ ld z z )> W To find (j ), i. e., to find the rate of change of z with regard to x when y is constant, differentiate in the ordinary way, but treating y as a constant.

Total Differential. If y is a function of x, then y f(x) dy d fl . j.,, \ =- i. e., dy = f'(x)dx. dy and dx are spoken of as differentials, and f'(x) is the coefficient of the differential dx; hence we see the reason for the term differential coefficient. ADDITIONAL RULES OF DIFFERENTIATION 83 If z is a function of x and y, i. e., z f(x, y), the total differential dz is obtained from the partial differentials dx and dy by the use of the following rule fdz dy dy. The reason for this is more clearly seen if we work from the fundamental idea of rates of change, and introduce the actually measurable quantities like Sz, Sx and Sy. FIG. 21. Thus or total change in z = change in z due to the change in change in z due to the change in y. The change in z due to the change in x must be measured by the product of the change in x multiplied by the rate at which z is changing with regard to x ; and this fact can be better illustrated by reference to a diagram (Fig. 21). Let P be a point (x, y, z) on a surface, and let P move to a new position Q near to P. The change of position is made up of (a) A movement 8x to P' on the surface (y being kept constant) . (b) A movement 8y to Q on the surface (x being kept constant) . 84 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS In (a) z increases by MP' and i t dz \ = Sxx mean value of I -3- ). \dx In (b) the change in z = NQ = Sy X mean value of ( j \dyl If P, P' and Q are taken extremely close to one another, the mean or average slopes become the actual slopes and the total change in z = 8z -MP'+NQ = (*) +*(*).

Logarithmic Differentiation. Occasionally it is necessary to differentiate an expression which can be resolved into a number of factors; and in such a case, to avoid repeated applications of the rules for the differentiation of products and quotients, we may first take logs throughout, and then differentiate, making use of the rule for the differentiation of a function of a function. By the judicious use of this artifice much labour can often be saved. Example 20. Find the value of - Ax Let- y = (3*~4)(4*-_ (zx-g) then log y = log (3* 4) +log (4*+ 7) -log (2* 9).

By far the most important and interesting direction in which differentiation proves of great service is in the solution of problems concerned with maximum and minimum values ; and with these problems we shall now deal. Maximum and Minimum Values. Numerous cases present themselves, both in engineering theory and practice, in which the value of one quantity is to be found such that another quantity, which depends on the first, has a maximum or minimum value when the first has the determined value. E. g., suppose it is desired to arrange a number of electric cells in such a way. that the greatest possible current is obtained from them. Knowing the voltage and internal resistance of each cell and the external resistance through which the current is to be passed, it is possible by simple differentiation to determine the relation that must exist between the external resistance and the total internal resistance in order that the maximum current flows. Again, it might be necessary to find the least cost of a hydraulic installation to transmit a certain horse-power. Here a number of quantities are concerned, such as diameter of piping, price of power, length of pipe line, etc., any one of which might be treated as the main variable. By expressing all the conditions in terms of this one variable and proceeding according to the plan now to be demonstrated, the problem would become one easy of solution. A graphic method for the solution of such problems has already been treated very fully (see Part I, pp. 183 et seq.). This method, though direct and perfectly general in its application, is somewhat laborious, and unless the graphs are drawn to a large scale in the neighbourhood of the turning points, the results obtained are usually good approximations only. In consequence of these failings APPLICATIONS OF DIFFERENTIATION 89 of the graphic treatment, the algebraic method is introduced, but it should be remembered that its application is not so universal as that of the solution by plotting. The theory of the algebraic method can be simply explained in the following manner : The slope of a curve measures the rate of change of the ordinate with regard to the abscissa; and hence, when the slope of the FIG, 22. Maximum and Minimum Values. curve is zero, the rate of change of the function is zero, and the function must have a turning value, which must be either a maximum or a minimum. But it has already been pointed out that the slope of a curve is otherwise denned as the derivative or the differential coefficient of the function ; therefore the function has a turning value whenever its derivative is zero. Hence, to find maximum or minimum values of a function we must first determine the derivative of the function, and then find MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS the value or values of the I.V. which make the derivative zero; the actual maximum or minimum values of the function being found by the substitution of the particular values of the I.V. in the expression for the function. The rule, stated in a concise form, is : To find the value of the I.V. which makes the function a maximum or minimum, differentiate the function, equate to zero and solve the resulting equation. The full merit of the method will be best appreciated by the discussion of a somewhat academic problem before proceeding to some of a more practical nature. Example i. Find the values of x which give to the function y = 2# 3 + 3# 2 36^ + 15 maximum or minimum values. Find also the value of x at the point of inflexion of the curve. This question may be treated from two points of view, viz. (a) From the graphical aspect. We first plot the primitive curve y 2# 3 +3# 2 36^+15 (see Fig. 22), the table of values for which is : X A 2 X s 2* s +3* 2 -36#+i5 y -4 16 -64 128+48 + 144 + 15 79 -3 9 -27 - 54 + 27+108 + 15 96 -2 4 - 8 - 16 + 12+ 72 + 15 83 I i - i 2+ 3+ 36 + 15 52 O o o o+ o- + 15 15 I i i 2+ 3 36+15 -16 2 4 8 16+12 72 + 15 29 3 9 27 54+27-108+15 12 4 16 64 128+48-144+15 47 5 25 125 250+75-180+15 1 60 This curve has two turns and two turns only, and consequently y has two turning values, one being a maximum and one a minimum. By successive graphic differentiation the first and second derived curves may be drawn, these being shown on the diagram. Now for values of x less than 3 the slope of the primitive curve is positive, as is demonstrated by the fact that the ordinates of the first derived curve are positive. At x 3 the primitive curve is horizontal and the first derived curve crosses the #-axis ; and since dv the ordinates of the first derived curve give the values of , , we see dx that when the primitive curve has a turning value, the value of dy f- = o. For values of x between 3 and +2 the slope of the primitive is negative; when x = +2 the slope is zero, and from that APPLICATIONS OF DIFFERENTIATION 91 point the slope is positive. Thus y has turning values when x = 3 and when x = +2; these values being a maximum at x 3 and a minimum at x = +2 as observed from the curve. This investigation proves of service when we proceed to treat the question from the algebraic aspect; in fact, for complete understanding the two methods must be interwoven. (b) From the algebraic point of view. Let y = 2x 3 + $x 2 36*4-15 then * = 6x*+6x-36 = 6(x z +x-6). Now in order that y may have turning values we have seen that dy it is necessary that -^- o. But ^ = o if 6(# 2 + *-6) = o i. e., if 6(^+3) (x 2) = o i. e., if x = 3 or 2 and hence y has turning values when x = 3 and x +2. We do not yet, however, know the character of these turning values, so that our object must now be to devise a simple method enabling us to discriminate between values of x giving maximum and minimum values to y. An obvious, but slow, method is as follows : Let us take a value of x slightly less than 3, say 3-1; then the calculated value of y is 95 "85. Next, taking a value of x rather bigger than 3, say 2-9, the value of y is found to be 95-85. Therefore, as x increases from 3-1 to 3 and thence to 2-9, y has the values 95'85, 96, and 95-85 respectively. Thus the value of y must , be a maximum at x = 3, since its values on either side are both less than its value when x = 3. In like manner it can be shown that when x -\-2, y has a minimum value. The arithmetical work necessary in this method can, however, be dispensed with by the use of a more mathematical process, now to be described. Referring to the first derived curve, the equation of which is y 6# 2 + 6# 36, we note that as x increases from 4 to 3 the ordinate of the derived curve decreases from 36 to o; from x = 3 to x = .5 the ordinate is negative but increasing numerically, i. e., in the neighbourhood of x = 3 the slope of the second derived curve, which is the slope curve of the first derived curve, is negative (for the ordinate decreases as the abscissa or the I.V. increases). But the slope of the first derived 92 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS curve, and thus the ordinate of the second derived curve, must d 2 v be expressed by -y-^, so that we conclude that in the neighbourhood dsC of a maximum value of the original function the second derivative of it is a negative quantity. In the same way we see that in the neighbourhood of a minimum value of the function, its second derivative is a positive quantity. Hence a more direct method of discrimination between the turning values presents itself : Having found the values of the I.V. causing turning values of the original function, substitute these values in turn in the expression for the second derivative of the function ; if the result is a negative, then the particular value of the I.V. considered is that giving a maximum value of the function and vice-versa. This rule may be expressed in the following brief fashion : Let y = f(x) and let the values of x that make -j~(x) orf'(x) = o be #! and x z . d 2 y Find the value of -~^ or f"(x), as it may be written, and in this expression substitute in turn the values x^ and x z in place of x: the values thus obtained are those of f"(x-^} and /"(# 2 ) respec- tively. Then if f"(x^), say, is negative, y has a maximum value when x x^; and if f"(xj) is positive, y has a minimum value when x = x v Applying to our present example : y = / When x 3 the value of -~ 2 is I2( 3) +6, i. e., /"( 3) = 30; and since /"( 3) is a negative quantity, y is a maximum when x == 3. Similarly, /"( + 2) = 12(2) +6 = +30 and hence y is a minimum when x +2. Referring to the second derived curve, i. e., the curve y = I2X+6, we note that its ordinate is negative for all values of x less than 5 and positive for all values of x greater than -5, the curve crossing the axis of x when x = -5. This indicates that when x = -5 the first divided curve has a turning value ; but the first APPLICATIONS OF DIFFERENTIATION 93 derived curve is the curve of the gradients of the primitive curve, and hence when x 5 the gradient of the primitive must have a turning value, which may be either a maximum or a minimum. In other words, if we had placed a straight edge to be tangential in all positions to the primitive curve, it would rotate in a right- handed direction until x = -5 was reached, after which the rotation would be in the reverse direction. A point on the curve at which the gradient ceases to rotate in the one direction and commences to rotate in the opposite direction is called a -point of inflexion of the curve. Thus points of inflexion or contra-flexure u d *y occur when -=-4 = o. dx 2 A useful illustration of the necessity for determining points of contra-flexure is furnished by cases of fixed beams. We have of Confraf lexure. [ filll 1 /^ ^\ I -21 ll ! FIG. 23. already seen that the bending moment at any section is propor- d 2 v tional to the value of -j- z there; hence there must be points of CLX* contra-flexure when the bending moment is zero. Example 2. Find the positions of the points of contra-flexure of a beam fixed at its ends and uniformly loaded with w units per foot; the deflected form having the equation i fwlx 3 wl 2 x z _wx*\ = El\ 12 24 24 ')' We may regard this question' from either the graphic aspect or the physical. According to the former we see that it is necessary to determine the points of inflexion, and therefore to find values of x ^ ^d*y . for which , 2 is zero. Reasoning from the physical basis we arrive at the same result, by way of the following argument : the bending moment, which is d z y expressed by EI- , changes sign, as is indicated by the change in OLX the curvature of the beam (see Fig. 23), and therefore at two points the bending moment must be zero, since the variation in it is uniform 94 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS and continuous; but the bending moment is zero when -~ 2 is zero, v since M = El j-^. dx 2 AT w fix 3 I 2 x 2 x*\ Now y = =pp ( ----------- V El \i2 24 24/ dy w T( I ,\ / / 2 \ 4 ^ hence ^ = -ey ( X3* 2 ) ( X2# ) *- a* El LA 1 2 / \24 / 24 w __ 12 ~~ 6 d 2 y w r / 1 \ i l z \ 3^ 2 -i and -,- -2 = ,-, f ( xzx ) ( XII V ^ 2 El L\4 / \I2 / 6 J (** l * _^ 2 \ .

Find the position of the point of section. Let x ins. = the length of one part, then 5 x = length of the other part. Then (5 #) 2 +4# 3 is to be a minimum. * Let y = ( 5 -*) 2 + 4 * 3 Then Hence ~- o if x ^ or i (the latter root implying external dx o cutting) .

S = As it stands this would be a rather cumbersome expression to differentiate, and we therefore employ a method which is often of great assistance.

Differentiation finds another application in the calculation of small corrections. Thus an experiment might' be carried out, certain readings being taken, and results deduced from these readings; then if there is a possibility of some slight error in the readings and it is required to find the consequent error in the calculated result, we may proceed to find that error in the manner now to be explained. Suppose we have two quantities A and B connected with one another by a formula A = KB ; then if the value of B is slightly inaccurate the error in A will depend on this error in B, and also on the rate at which A changes with regard to B. E. g., if A changes three times as fast as B and the error in B is !%, then the consequent error in A must be 3X-I or -3%. We might also look upon this question from a different point of view. Suppose that a reading, instead of being x, as it should have been, was slightly larger, say x-}-8x, i. e., the measured value of x would be represented by OB and not OA (Fig. 26), then the error is Sx or 8x XIOO%. X This error causes an error in the value of y, so that the calculated value of y is BQ and not AP, i. e., the error is Sy. To compare these errors we proceed as follows : -- the slope of the chord PQ, and if Sx is very small (as it should be, for otherwise the experiment would be repeated), then this would also be the slope of the tangent at both P and Q, or, approximately Sy dy 8x dx ^. e., dx or, error in y = rate at which y changes with regard to x X error in x.

Expansion of Functions in Series. Theorems of Taylor andMaclaurin. Many of the simpler functions, suchaslog (i-f-#), sin x, cos x, etc., can be expressed as the sums of series. These functions can be expressed in terms of these series by the use of a theorem known as Maclaurin's.

[Now /(*) = * 4 i-5* 3 +37* 21-554 so that 7' (2-4) = 55-30-25-92+3-7 = 33-o8.] Hence o = 234+^x33-08) or h= -^o = -0071. 33-o8 Hence a more correct approximation is 2-4+ -0071 *. e. t x = 2-407 is the solution of the equation.

CHAPTER V INTEGRATION HAVING discussed the section of the Calculus which treats of differentiation, we can now proceed to the study of the process of integration, this having a far more extensive application, and being, without doubt, far more difficult to comprehend. As with the differentiation, it is impossible fully to appreciate this branch of the subject unless much careful thought is given to the fundamental principles; and accordingly the introduction to the Integral Calculus is here treated at great length, but in a manner which, it is hoped, will commend itself. Meaning of Integration. The terms integer and integral convey the idea of totality; an integer being, as we know, a whole number, and thus the sum of its constituent parts or fractions. The process of integration in the same way implies a summation or a totalling, whereas that of differentiation is the determination of rates of change or the comparison of small differences. Differentiation suggests subtraction or differencing, whilst integration suggests addition ; differentiation deals with rates of change, integration with the results of the total change ; differen- tiation involves the determination of slopes of curves, and integra- tion the determination of areas of figures. Integration is, in fact, the converse to differentiation, and being therefore a converse operation is essentially more difficult to perform. [As instances of this statement contrast the squaring a quantity with the extraction of a square root, or the removal of brackets with factorisation.] A converse operation is rather more vague as concerns the results than a direct; for when performing a direct operation one result only is obtainable, but the results of a converse operation may be many, as we shall find, for example, when dealing with indefinite integrals. To illustrate the connection between differentiation and integra- tion, consider the familiar case of velocity and acceleration. Suppose values of v and t are given, as in the table : "5 n6 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS Then t I 15 20 25 -30 V 28-4 297 30-5 33'4 36-5 8v i'3 8 2-9 3'i 8t 05 05 05 05 Bv a = w 26 16 58 62 The accelerations are here found by comparing differences of velocity with differences of time. Regard the question from the other point of view : assume that these accelerations are given and we wish to determine the total change in the velocity in the given period of time. The total change must be given by the sum of the changes in the small periods of time; in the first period of -05 sec. the average acceleration was 26, i, e., the velocity was being increased at the rate of 26 units per sec. each sec. ; and therefore the change in the velocity in -05 sec. = 26 x -05 units per sec. = 1-3 units per sec. In the successive periods the changes in velocity are -8, 2-9 and 3-1 respectively. Hence the total change in the velocity over the period -2 sec. = i-3-f--8+2-9+3'i == 8-1 units per sec., or if the initial velocity was 28-4, the final velocity was 28-4+8-1 = 36-5. Note that the acceleration is given by the fraction ^, whilst a small change in ot the velocity is of the nature aU, or the total change of velocity = sum of all small changes = ^aSt. We can thus find integrals by working through the processes of differentiation, but in the reverse order. If a function, expressed in terms of symbols, has to be integrated, it is an advantage to transform the rules for differentiation into forms more readily applicable; the method, however, being entirely algebraic. If numerical values alone are given, the integration resolves itself into a determination of an area. Hence Considered from an algebraic standpoint Differentiation implies the calculation of rates of change ; Integration implies the summation of small quantities. INTEGRATION 117 From the graphic standpoint Differentiation is concerned with the measurement of slopes of curves ; Integration is concerned with the measurement of areas under curves. Just as special symbols are used to denote the processes of differentiation, so also there are special symbols for expressing the processes of integrations. Regarding an integral as an area, it must be of two dimensions, a length and a breadth; and we have seen in an earlier chapter (Part I, Chap. VII) that in order to ascertain an area correctly its base must be divided up into small elements, the smaller the better, these elements not necessarily being of the same length, but all being small. Thus, to find the area ABCD- (Fig. 27) we can suppose it divided up into small strips, as EFGH, then find the area of each of these and add the results. The portion EH of the curve is very nearly straight, so that EFGH is a trapezoid, and hence its area = mean height X width. Now its mean 6JG I F G FIG. 27. height FE and GH are practically the same, so that any one of them can be denoted by y; also the width FG of the strip is a small element of the base, *'. e., is 8x. Hence, the area of the strip EFGH y x 8x, and the total area between the curve, the bounding ordinates and the axis of x must equal the sum of all products like y8x, or, as it might be expressed Area = 2yS# (approximately). However small the width of the strips are made, this sum only gives the area approximately, but as 8x is diminished the result approaches the true more and more closely. Therefore, bearing in mind our previous work on limits, we can say that the limiting value of 2ySx must give the area exactly. To this limiting value of the sum different forms of symbols are n8 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS attached, the 2 and S being replaced by the English forms / and d respectively, so that the area between the curve and the axis of x = fydx. There is no limit placed to this area in any horizontal direction, so that the area is not denned by the given formula. Hence fydx is spoken of as an indefinite integral. The x is again the I.V., and the size of the area will depend on the values given to it. Suppose that when y = AB, x = a, and when y = CD, x = b ; then the range of x is from a to & if it is the area ABCD that is considered. Accordingly we can state that the area ABCD =fydx, the value of this integral being found between x = a and x = b, or, as it is written for brevity, fx=b fb I ydx, or, more shortly still, I ydx, it being clearly understood J x=a J a that the limits a and b apply to the I.V., i. e., that quantity directly associated with the " d." It is evident that ABCD is a definite area, having one value fb only, and thus I ydx is termed a definite integral. J a The most convenient method for determining areas (provided that a planimeter is not handy) is undoubtedly the " sum curve " method treated in Part I, Chap. VII ; the great virtue of it being that the growth of the area is seen, and that either any portion or the whole of the area of the figure can be readily found by reading a particular ordinate. In view of the great usefulness of the process of integration by graphic means, the method is here explained in detail, following exactly the plan adopted in Part I, Chap. VII. Graphic Integration is a means of summing an area with the aid of tee and set square, by a combination of the principles of the "addition of strips" and "similar figures." An area in Fig. 28 is bounded by a curve a'b'z', a base line az and two vertical ordinates aa' and zz'. The base is first divided in such a way that the widths of the strips are taken to suit the changes of curvature between a' and z' ', and are therefore not necessarily equal ; and mid-ordinates (shown dotted) are erected for every division. Next the tops of the mid-ordinates are projected horizontally on to a vertical line, as BB'. A pole P is now chosen to the left of that vertical; its distance from it, called the polar distance p, being a round number of horizontal units. The pole is next joined to each of the projections in turn and parallels are drawn across the INTEGRATION 119 corresponding strips so that a continuous curve results, known as the Sum Curve. Thus am parallel to PB' is drawn from a across the first strip; mn parallel to PC' is drawn from m across the second strip, and so on. The ordinate to the sum curve through any point in the base gives the area under the original or primitive curve from a up to the point considered. Referring to Fig. 28 Area of strip abb' a' = ab x AB Pole FIG. 28. Graphic Integration, but, by similar figures B'a or BA bin ab whence AB x ab = p X bm , area of strip , , . , , i. e., bm = - or area of strip = px bm P i. e., bm measures the area of the first strip to a particular scale, which depends entirely on the value of p. , area of second strip In the same way nm = - P 120 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS and by the construction nm' and bm are added, so that area of ist and 2nd strips en P or area of ist and 2nd strips p x en Thus, summing for the whole area Area of aa'z'z = p x zL Thus the scale of area is the old vertical scale multiplied by the polar distance ; and accordingly the polar distance should be selected in terms of a number convenient for multiplication. E. g., if the original scales are i" = 40 units vertically and i" = 25 units horizontally and the polar distance is taken as 2", i. e., 50 horizontal units; then the new vertical scale = old vertical scale x polar distance = 40x50 = 2000 units per inch. If the original scales are given and a -particular scale is desired for the sum curve, then the polar distance must be calculated as follows new vertical scale Polar distance in horizontal units = , , ,-. , , old vertical scale E. g., if the primitive curve is a " velocity-time" curve plotted to the scales, i" 5 ft. per sec. (vertically) and i" = -i sec. (hori- zontally), and the scale of the sum curve, which is a " displacement- time " curve, is required to be i" = 2-5 ft., then 2*S Polar distance (in horizontal units) = = -5 and since i" = -i unit along the horizontal, the polar distance must be made 5". Integration is not limited to the determination of areas only; true, an integral may be regarded as an area, but if the ordinate does not represent a mere length, but, say, an area of cross section, the value of the integral will in such cases measure the volume of the solid. Our standard form throughout will be for the area of the figure as plotted on the paper, viz., Jydx, where y is an ordinate and 8x an element of the base, but y and x may represent many different quantities. Thus, suppose a curve is plotted to represent the expansion of INTEGRATION 121 a gas; if, as is usual, pressures are plotted vertically and volumes horizontally, the ordinate is p and an element of the base is Sv; hence the area under the curve = \ z pdv (if the J n initial and final volumes are v t and v 2 respectively), and since this /6s is of the nature pressure X volume, i. e., 7^3 X (ft) 3 or ft. Ibs., the \7*J area must represent the work done in the expansion. To illustrate such a case : Work 106560 8 10 la 14- 16 18 SO 2 24 26 FIG. 29. Expansion of Steam. Example i. It is required to find the work done in the expansion of i Ib. of dry saturated steam from pressure 100 Ibs. per sq. in. to pressure 15 Ibs. per sq. in. From the steam tables the following corresponding values of p and v are found : s v (cu. ft. per Ib.) 4.44 5-48 7-16 10-50 I3-72 20 26-4 p (Ibs. per sq. in.) IOO 80 60 40 30 2O 15 By plotting these values, p vertically, the expansion curve is obtained (Fig. 29) ; this being the primitive curve. Selecting a polar distance equivalent to 10 horizontal units, we proceed to construct the sum curve, the last ordinate of which measures to a certain scale the work done in the expansion. Now the new vertical scale = old vertical X 10, since the polar distance = 10 ; and also we must multiply by 144, since the pressures are expressed 122 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS in Ibs. per sq. in. and must be converted to Ibs. per sq. ft., so that the work done may be measured in ft. Ibs. According to this modified scale the last ordinate is read off as 106560 ; thus the work done = 106560 ft. Ibs. or, as it would be written in more mathematical language T26-4 f J4 pdv 106560. Example 2. The diameters of a tapering stone column, 20 ft. long, at 6 equidistant places were measured as 2-52, 2-06, 1-54, i'i5, '80 and -58 ft. respectively.

J o 4 Since - is a constant multiplier, it can be omitted until the end, for its effect is simply to alter the final scale ; hence a constant factor before integration remains so after. Hence the weight- = 1097 j d*.dl. INTEGRATION 123 The integral will be of the standard form if for d z we write y and if for / we write x, so that we see that ordinates must represent d 2 and abscissae lengths, and hence the table for plotting reads : I o 4 8 12 16 20 y or d 2 6-34 4-24 2-36 1-32 64 336 Plotting these values and thence constructing the sum curve (see Fig. 30), we find the last ordinate to be 47-15, and this is the value f20 of J Q d*.dl. [20 Weight = 109-7 1 d z .dl = 109-7x47-15 = 5180 Ibs. Application of Integration to " Beam " Problems. At an earlier stage (see p. 38) it has been demonstrated that the shear at any point in the length of a beam loaded in any way whatever is given by the rate of change of the bending moment in the neighbourhood considered, this being the space rate of change. Conversely, then, the bending moment must be found by summating the shearing force ; and hence, if the shear curve is given, its sum curve is the curve of bending moment. In the majority of problems the system of loading is given, from which the curve of loads can be drawn. Then, since the shear at any section is the sum of all the forces to the right or left of that section, the sum curve of the load curve must be the shear curve; continuing the process, the sum curve of the shear curve, i. e., the second sum curve from the load curve as primitive, is the curve of bending moment and the fourth sum curve is the deflected form. Expressing these results or statements in the notation of the calculus ; L, S and M being the respective abbreviations for loading, shear and bending moment S =fLdx M =f$dx =f(fLdx)dx = ffL(dx) z [ff~L(dx) z being termed a double integral] and the deflection y = ff M.(dx) 2 or ffff L(dx)*. If the loading is not uniform, but continuous, the summation must be performed graphically. [The link polygon method largely used obviates half these curves, e. g., the link polygon for the loads gives at once the curve of bending moment.] 124 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS Example 3. The loading on a beam, 24 ft. long, simply supported at its ends varies continuously, as shown in the table.

By sum-curving this curve, we obtain the curve of shearing force, although no measurements can be made to it until account has been taken of the support reactions. 4 68 1C 12' ' 14 >6 <8 FIG. 31. Problem on Loaded Beam. To find the reactions at the ends : We know that these must be equal, since the loading is symmetrical, each reaction being one-half of the total load. Now the last ordinate AB of the sum curve of the load curve is 19; thus the reactions are each 9-5. Bisecting AB, or, in other words, marking off a length AC to represent the reaction at A, we draw a horizontal, and this is the true base line for the curve of shear; any ordinate to the curve of shear from this base giving the shear at the point in the length of the beam through which the ordinate is drawn. We observe that the shear changes sign and is zero at the centre of the beam; we can conclude from this that the bending moment must have its maximum value at the centre, since shear rate of change of bending moment, and if the shear is zero, the bending moment must have a turning value. By sum-curving the shear curve from CD as base, the resulting curve is that of bending moment. INTEGRATION 125 It is well carefully to consider the scales, for it is with these that difficulties often arise. The scales given here apply to the original drawing, of which Fig. 31 is a reproduction somewhat under half full size. For the length i in. = 2-5 ft. For loads i in. = -4 ton per ft. Polar distance for the first sum curve, i. e., the curve of shear = 4 ins. = 4X2-5, or 10 horizontal units. Hence the scale of shear = -4 x 10, or 4 tons to i in. B FIG. 32. Shearing Force and Bending Moment on Ship's Hull. Polar distance for the second sum curve = 4 ins. = 10 horizontal units. Hence the scale of bending moment = 4 X 10 = 40 or i in. (vertically) = 40 tons. ft. Reading according to these scales The maximum shear = 9-5 tons ^ and the maximum bending moment = 68 tons, ft. J Example 4. In Fig. 32 AAA is the curve of weights or load distribution, and BBB the curve of buoyancy or upward water thrust 126 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS for a ship whose length is 350 ft., the scale of loads being indicated on the diagram. Draw diagrams of shearing force and bending moment on the hull of the vessel and measure the maximum values of these quantities. It is first necessary to construct the curve of loads to a straight line base, and to do this the differences between the curves AAA and BBB are set off from a horizontal, taken in our case below the original base line. In this way the curve of loads LLL is obtained, the scale being shown to the left of the diagram. By sum-curving this curve, the curve of shear SSS is obtained ; the polar distance (not shown on the diagram) being taken as 50 horizontal units, so that the scale for the shear is 50 times the scale for the loads. Sum-curving the curve SSS, the curve MMM, that of bending moment, is obtained (again the polar distance is 50 horizontal units). Sectio'ns such as K, where the upward thrust of the water balances the downward force due to the weights, are spoken of as water-borne. Reading our maximum values according to the proper scales, we find them to be Maximum shear = 246 tons ~\ Maximum bending moment = 14,300 tons ft. / It should be noted that the last ordinate of both the shear curve and the curve of bending moment is zero ; these results we should expect since the areas under the curves AAA and BBB must be equal, so that the shear at the end must be zero, and also the moments of these areas must be alike. [In practice the maximum bending moment is found by such a formula as- Weight X length Maximum bending moment = 7? Constant the constant for small boats being between 30 and 40, and for larger between 25 and 30.] The Coradi Integraph. A brief description of the Integraph, an instrument devised to draw mechanically the sum curve, can usefully be inserted at this stage. It consists essentially of a carriage running on four milled wheels A (Fig. 33), a slotted arm C carrying the tracer B which is moved along the primitive curve, and the arm D which carries the pencil E which draws the sum curve. As B is moved along the primitive curve, the slotted arm C slides about the pins G and P, thus altering its inclination to the horizontal. A parallel link motion ensures the movement of E parallel to the instantaneous position of C, the sharp-edged wheel F assisting in guiding the tracer bracket. INTEGRATION 127 The principle of the instrument is not difficult to understand, and can be explained in a very few words. The pole is at P, and the tops of the mid-ordinates are pro- jected to the vertical through G by the horizontals like BG; parallels are then drawn to PG by the pencil E, the motion being continuous. The polar distance can be varied as desired, by altering the position of the bracket carrying the pin P along the horizontal arm; and if an extremely small polar distance is found to be advisable, the pin H may be utilised instead of G. Rules for Integration of Simpler Functions. Since integration is the reverse of differentiation, many functions can be integrated by reversing the order of the steps in differentiation. Integration of powers of x. The first rule given in the work on differentiation of functions was d x n = nx n ~ v . dx 128 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS To change into the integration form, we transpose -5- : the " d" on the one side becomes f on the other side, to indicate the change differencing to summing, and the " dx " occurs on the top line of the other side of the equation. Thus x n = fnx n ~ 1 dx or fx n ~ 1 dx = - x n -\-C % the reason for the presence of the constant term C being explained later. It is a trifle simpler to write n in place of ni, and therefore +i in place of n, so that Whereas, when differentiating a power of the I.V., the power was reduced by i in the process of differentiation ; when integrating, the power is increased by i. fa <y-5 tiv^ - g " dx x whereas fx 5 dx = ^ x 6 -\-C. A special case occurs for which the above rule does not apply : for, let n = i, then fx~ l dx should, according to the rule just given, be - x, but to this fraction no definite meaning can be assigned. We know that -3- log x = - = x~* dx x fx- 1 dx = log x+C or, as it is sometimes written dx , A constant multiplier before integration remains as such after; thus faxndx = T % W+1 +C. Also an expression composed of terms can be integrated term by term, and the results added. INTEGRATION 129 Thus, f (ax n -\-b) dx can be written fax n dx -\-fbdx i. e., fax*dx-\-fbx?dx f or x = i its value being -x n+l -\-bx+C. Note. Differentiation of a constant term gives zero, but the integration gives that constant multiplied by the I.V. The reason for this will be apparent if we consider the state- ments from the graphical standpoint. The curve representing the equation y = b is a horizontal straight line, and therefore the slope is zero (i.e., -v- = o) ; but the area under the curve = the area of a rectangle = base x height = xxb (i. e.,fbdx = bx). Exponential Functions. We have already proved that dx de x - e* ( S ee p. 47) ; then by transposition of d and dx to the other side of the equation we obtain the statement e x = j and since -, corresponds to f we may write this as fe x dx = e x -\-C. Thus if we either differentiate e x or integrate it we arrive at the same result ; and e x is the only function for which the differential coefficient and also the integral are the same as the function itself. Carrying this work a step further, let us consider the integration of e bx , and hence a x : Now f-ae bx = abe bx .*. fae bx dx = ?J*+C. dx b To avoid confusion as to the placing of a and b we must reason in the following manner : The a is a constant multiplier of the whole function, and therefore remains so after integration; the b multiplies the I.V. only; and thus differentiation would cause it to multiply the result, whereas after integration it becomes a divisor. Great attention should be paid to the application of this rule, for unless care is exercised mistakes are very apt to creep in. Example 5.

Notice that although a function has been differentiated and the derivative integrated, the final expression is not exactly the same as the original, the constant term being represented only by C, where C may have any value.

We have previously seen that the derived curve of either the sine curve or the cosine curve is the primitive curve itself transferred back a horizontal distance of one-quarter of the period. Conversely, then, we may state that the sum curve of either the sine or the cosine curve is the curve itself moved forward for a distance corresponding to one-quarter of the period. In other words, integration does not alter the form of the curve. Taking the case of the sine curve as the primitive, we see, on reference to Fig. 34, that if this curve is shifted forward for one-quarter period the resulting curve is the cosine curve inverted ; or expressing in algebraic language, whilst the equation of the primitive curve is y = sin x, that of the sum or integral curve is y = cos x. Thus, fsmxdx = cos x. In like manner it could be shown that feosxdx = sin*. For emphasis, the dif- ferentiation and the integration of sine x and cosine x are repeated here -T- sin x = cos x /sin* dx = cos #4-C dx -T-COS x sin x /cos* dx = sin x-\- C. dx J INTEGRATION 135 Note. When differentiating the cosine the minus sign appears in the result ; when integrating the sine the minus sign appears ; it is important to get a good grip of these statements, and the con- sideration of them from the graphic aspect is a great help in this respect. To extend the foregoing rules fcosxdx = sin x-\-C /cos (ax+b)dx = sin (ax+b)+C fsinxdx = cos x-\-C /sin (ax+b)dx = cos (ax+b)+C. 1 75 5 25 O 25 5 75 1 ^ \/ J?

Thus the angle remains the same after integration just as it would after differentiation, but the constant multiplier a of the I.V. becomes a divisor.

If "an integral is to denote an area some boundaries must be known ; and nothing was said about the limits to be ascribed to x (or s, as the case might be) in the foregoing, so that we were in reality dealing with indefinite areas or integrals. To indicate that a portion of the area may be dispensed with in certain cases (when the boundaries are stated) a constant C is introduced on the R.H.S. of the equation, x* i. e.,fx 3 dx would be written +C. As soon as the integral, and therefore the area, is made definite it will be observed that C vanishes. 138 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS If fx 3 dx is to equal -x*+C, -, (-# 4 +Cj should equal x 3 ; and this is the case for d -=- dx ^A 4 c \ ^ dx\4 J dx (C being independent of x). Cf. Example 5, p. 129 ; the constant in that case being 83. It is therefore advisable to add the constant in all examples on integration; in many practical examples the determination of the value of the constant is an important feature, and therefore its omission would invalidate the results obtained. In the list of a few of the simpler standard integrals collected together here for purposes of reference and by way of revision the constant is denoted by C. f(ax n +b)dx a fax n dx Jbdx [dx J x [ dx J ax+b = bx+C = log x+C = ^ log (*+&) +C fae bx dx - a b ^+c fe*dx = e*+C faFdx = rog* x *+ c /sin (ax-{-b)dx - cos (ax+b)-\-C f sin xdx = cos x-\-C /cos (ax-\-b}dx f cos xdx /sec 2 (ax-\-b}dx f sec 2 xdx /cosec 2 (ax-\-b}dx = - sin (ax-}-b)-{-C & sin x-\-C - tan (a^ = tan -- cot (ax+b)+C d INTEGRATION 139 / cosec 2 xdx = cot x-\-C /tan (ax+b)dx = log cos (ax-}-b)-\-C 8 / tan xdx = log (cos #)+C /cot (ax+b)dx = log sin (ax+b)-{-C f cot xdx = log (sin A;) +C. Method of Determining the Values of Definite Integrals. We may regard the area of a closed figure as the difference between two areas, viz., all the area to the left, say, of one boundary, minus all the area to the left of the other parallel boundary. Hence to find the value of a definite integral, the value of the integral must be found when the I.V. has its higher limiting value, and from this must be subtracted its value when the lower limiting value is substituted for the I.V. fx 2 dx = -x 3 -\-C is an indefinite integral, but if to C we give a definite value, it becomes definite and unique. /4 Thus I x 2 dx is a definite integral, because the limits to be J 2 applied to x are indicated. To evaluate it We know that fx z dx = -x 3 -\-C. The value of this integral when x = 4 is -f-C o and the value of this integral when x = 2 is |-C the constant being the same in the two cases. The difference = -^+C - -+C = ^ V 3 / \3 / 3 meaning that if the curve y = x z were plotted, and the area between the curve, the x axis and the ordinates through x = 2 and x = 4 found, its value would be i8| sq. units. It will be noticed that C vanishes, and hence when dealing with definite integrals it is usual to omit it altogether. ) MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS /" 4 /# 3 \ 4 For brevity, I x 2 dx is written I ) , which on expansion .'2 \3/2 r reads __ e 56 3 3/'* '3' Example 16.

CHAPTER VI FURTHER METHODS OF INTEGRATION BY the use of the rules enumerated in the previous chapter it is possible to perform any integration by a graphic method and the integration of the simpler functions by algebraic processes. Whilst the graphic integration is of universal application, it at times involves much preliminary arithmetical work, which it is tedious to perform, so that it is very frequently the better plan to resort to a somewhat more difficult, though shorter, algebraic method. For the more complex functions, then, a choice has to be made between the two methods of attack ; the fact being borne in mind that only in cases where definite integrals are concerned does the graphic method of integration compare favourably with the algebraic. It is therefore advisable to introduce new processes and artifices to be employed for the algebraic integration of difficult functions; and whilst it is not absolutely essential that all these forms should be remembered, it is well that the various types should be considered, so that they may be recognised when they occur. It is impossible to deal here with every kind of integral likely to be encountered ; all that can be done is to develop the standard forms which cover a wide range, and to leave them to suggest forms for particular cases. Integration by the Aid of Partial Fractions. Many com- plex fractions can be split up into simpler or partial fractions, to which the simple rules of integration may be applied. Thus if we Q/ OQ are asked to integrate, with respect to x, the fraction 2 _ ~ , we soon discover that we are unable to perform this operation with only the knowledge of integration acquired from the previous chapter. If, however, we break the fraction up, in the manner explained in Part I, Chap. XII, we find that the integration resolves itself into that of two simple fractions. 146 FURTHER METHODS OF INTEGRATION 147 Thus , 8 *~ 3 ? o = - h- 4 - (see Part I, p. 453). 2 x 4 2x 7 Hence- f**^?** = f- 2 - d*+ l J 2x 2 15^+28 J x 4 J 2# 7 = 2 log (* 4) +4 log (2* 7) + log C = log (*- 4 ) 2 +log (2*- 7 )2+log C = log {C(*- 4 ) 2 (2*-7) 2 }.

A product cannot be integrated directly; but when the functions are trigonometric the product can be broken up into a sum or difference and the terms of this integrated. Before proceeding with the work of this paragraph the reader would do well to study again pp. 273 to 286, Part I. Example 3.

At times a substitution aids the integration, but the cases in which this happens can only be distinguished after one has become perfectly familiar with the different types. y- is a type to which this method applies. In this fraction it will be observed that the numerator is exactly the differential of the denominator. Hence if u be written for the FURTHER METHODS OF INTEGRATION 149 denominator, the numerator may be replaced by du, so that the integral reduces to the simple form I , i. e., log w+log C. J u For if or Hence u = ax z +bx-\-c du -j- = 2ax-\-b dx du = (2ax-\-b)dx . ((^x+b^x = fdu J ax z -}-bx-\-c J u = log w+k>g C = log Cu = log C(ax*+bx+c). In many cases integration may be effected by substitution of trigonometric for the algebraic functions ; and Examples 6 to 10 illustrate this method of procedure. Example 6. To findyVa 2 -X FIG. 36. Let then x a sinw, as illustrated by Fig. 36 a 2 x 2 = a 2 a 2 sin 2 u = a 2 (i sin 2 w) = a 2 cos 2 u and Va 2 x* = a costt, as will be seen from the figure.

CHAPTER VII MEAN VALUES: ROOT MEAN SQUARE VALUES: VOLUMES : LENGTH OF ARC : AREA OF SURFACE OF SOLID OF REVOLUTION : CENTROID : MOMENT OF INERTIA Determination of Mean Values. It is frequently necessary to calculate the mean value of a varying quantity : thus if a variable force acts against a resistance, the work done will be dependent on the mean value of the force; or to take an illustra- tion from electrical theory, if we can find the values of the current and electro-motive force at various instants during the passage of the current, then the mean rate of working is the mean value of their product. The mean value of a series of values is found by adding the values together and then dividing by the number of values taken. If, however, a curve is drawn to give by its ordinate the magnitude of the quantity at any instant, the mean value of the quantity is determined by the mean height of the diagram, which is the area divided by the length of the base. This really amounts to the taking of an exceedingly large number of ordinates and then calculating their average. The area may be measured by the planimeter, in which case the instrument may be set to record the mean height directly, or by any of the methods enumerated in Part I, Chap. VII. A clear conception of the idea of mean values can be gained by consideration of the examples that follow; the first example being merely of an arithmetical nature. Example i. The corresponding values of an electric current and the E.M.F. producing it are as in the table : c o 1-8 3'5 5 6-1 6-8 6-1 5 3'5 1-8 E 9 17-5 25 30'5 34 30-5 25 17-5 9 1 80 MEAN VALUES 181 Find the mean value of the power over the period during which these values were measured. current x E.M.F., and 61-25 16-2 The power is measured by the product thus the values of the power are o 16-2 61-25 125 186-05 231-2 186-05 I2 5 the sum = 1008-2 the number of values = 10 1008-2 hence the average or mean value = = 100-8. A better result would probably be obtained if the values of the power were plotted and the area of the diagram found. Thus in Fig, 39 the base is taken as 10 units (merely for con- venience), and the area is found to be 1013 sq. units. Then the mean height of the diagram, which is = 101-3, is also the mean value of the power; and a line drawn at a height of 101-3 units divides the figure in such a way that the area B is equal to the areas A+A. eoo Rawer -""Mean hcighf Ol E3456789IO FIG. 39. Let it next be required to find the mean value of a function say, the mean value of y when y = 4x z -\-jx$, the range of x being i to 6. We have seen that it is really necessary first to find the area under the curve y = 4# 2 +7# 5 within the proper boundaries and then to divide by the length of the base; and since the relation between y and x is stated, it is possible to dispense with the graph and work entirely by algebraic integra- tion; thus also ensuring the true result, for in reality the mean is automatically taken of an infinite number of ordinates. In the case taken as an illustration, the base is the axis of x, or, more strictly, the portion of it between x = i and x = 6, so that the length of the base = 61 = 5 units, and the area between the curve, the axis of x and the ordinates through x = i f 6 f 6 and x = 6 is given by the value of I y dx, i. e., I (4x z -\-jx 5) dx, 182 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS so that the mean value (for which we shall write m.v.) is *2+*_ dx m.v. = _[3 +2 J"~ 5 *]'i 5 It is instructive to compare this result with the results obtained by the use of the mid-ordinate rule : (a) Taking 5 ordinates only, we have the values X 4# 2 +7*- 5 y 'i 2* 3t 4i 5i 9+10-5 5 25 + I7-5-5 49+24-5-5 81+31-5-5 121 + 38-5-5 14-5 37-5 685 107-5 154-5 Their sum = 382-5 and the average = 76-5. (b) Taking 10 ordinates, viz., those at x = ij, if, 2|, etc., the values of y are 10, 19-5, 31, 44-5, 60, 77-5, 97, 118-5, 142 and 167-5 their sum = 767-5 and the average = 76-75. Therefore, by increasing the number of ordinates measured, a better approximation is found. The curve is a parabola with axis vertical, and hence Simpson's rule should give the result accurately if 3 ordinates only are taken, viz., at x = i, 3-5 and 6. Thus, A = 6, M = 68-5, B = 181. -.. 6+(4x68-5)+i8i Hence the mean height = - = = 76-83. MEAN VALUES 183 If, then, the law connecting the two variables is known, the mean value of the one over any range of the other can be found by integrating the former with regard to the latter between the proper limits and then dividing by the range; or to express in symbols, if y = f(x), the mean value of y, as x ranges from a to b, is given by fb , y dx f J " b-a Example 2. Find the mean value of e 5x between x = -2 and x = /? g . a m.v. = 7-'2 '5 t-5 2 ~ 5 '* = ^{33-12-272} = 12-16 i. e., if the curve y = e 5x were plotted between x = -2 and x = 7 its mean ordinate would be 12-16 units. Example 3. If C = 5 sin 3^, find the m.v. of C, when , > , . , 27C . (a) t vanes from o to 3 (b) t varies from o to -. Whenever dealing with the integration of trigonometric functions it is advisable first to determine the period of the function, since much numerical work may often be saved in this way. The sine and cosine curves are curves symmetrical about the axis of the I.V. (i, e., x or t, as the case may be) ; hence there is as much area above this axis as below it, if a full period or a multiple of periods be considered. Therefore, regarding the area above the x axis as positive and the area below this axis as negative, the net area over the full period is zero, so that the mean height of the curve,* and therefore the m.v. of the function, must be zero. For the case of C = 5 sin 3/, the period = ^ ^ = coeff <. of / 3 and hence if the m.v. is required for t ranging fiom o to ' . 4^ o to , etc. 3 the result is zero. 184 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS Hence, whenever the analysis shows that the full period is involved, there is no need to go through the process of integration. In this case, however, the integration is performed for purposes of verification. 27T 27T , _ fa 5 sin -$tdt 3 x 5 / i ,\- (a) m.v. of C. = / * 3 = - - ( cos 3/ J o 271 27T \ 3 - / 1 3 - -o 3 - (COS 27C COS O) 27T V = ('-I) 27U V ' IT /i.\ t r fissinitdt (b) m.v. of C. = / - = Jo n 3 = - (COS 7T COS O) 7T V 5 / \ I0 = *-* ( r i) = . 7T V 7T Comparing this with the amplitude, which is the maximum ordinate of the curve and has the value 5 sin = 5, we note that Mean ordinate for ^ period 10 _ 2 _ Maximum ordinate for \ period ~~ TT X 5 ~~ n ~ '' The average height of a sine curve is always -637 x the maximum height. Example 4. If an alternating electric current is given by the relation C = -5 sin i207T/+-o6 sin 6007^ find the mean value of C.

The period of c, = -5 sin I2O7T/ is or >-, and of c = -06 sin 6007^ is I2O7C 6O - 01 - -, so that the period of the compound curve must be ^-. 60O7T 30O 6O From the pievious reasoning it is seen that the mean height of the curve c t = -5 sin i207r/ must be -637 x amplitude = -637 X -5 = -3185; and the mean height of the curve c 2 = -06 sin 6007^ considered over the same period, viz., o to , must be the mean height of the wave A, 120 since the positive and negative areas are otherwise balanced, but this MEAN VALUES 185 must be spread over five times its usual base ; now the mean height of the wave A is '637 X -06, so that the mean height of the curve c 2 -06 sin 6oo7c/ over the period o to -637 x -06 is or -0076. 120 5 Then the mean value of C = -3185 + -0076 = -3261. The nature of the average should be clearly understood ; for it is possible that the same quantity may have two different averages according to the way those averages are considered. Suppose a piston is pushed by a variable force; then the average value of that force might be found by taking readings of it at every foot of the stroke and dividing by the number of readings taken, in 40 X^ IO i- -Oesin gOOTTf FIG. 40. Problem on Alternating Current. which case the average would be termed a space average ; or the force might be measured at equal intervals of time, whence the time average of the force would result. To take another instance : Suppose a bullet penetrates a target to a depth of s ft. ; the average value of the force calculated from the formula Ps = mv* where P is the force, would be a mv space average, but P calculated from the formula Pt= , i. e., the 6 force causing change of momentum in a definite time, would be a time average.

Root Mean Square Values. A direct electric current maybe measured by its three effects chemical decomposition, magnetic effect or heating effect. An alternating current (A.C.), however, flowing first in one direction and then in the reverse, cannot be measured by either the first or the second of these effects, because the effect due to the flow in one direction would be neutralised by that due to the opposite flow ; hence an A.C. must be measured by its heating effect. The heating effect of a current expressed by the heat units H may be measured by H = where C is the current, so that it will be seen that H oc C 2 . The measuring instruments are graduated to give the root of the mean value of this heating effect, i. e., the square root of the ROOT MEAN SQUARE VALUES 189 mean value of the squares (called the root mean square value and written R.M.S.) ; in other words, the instrument records what are termed virtual amperes, a virtual ampere being the current that produces the same heat in a resistance as a steady or direct current of i ampere in the same time. In place of the measurement of the current by its heating effect, the ammeter might be of the electro-dynamometer type, and in such the instrument records the mean value of C 2 , and the square root of this value is called the effective current. Similar remarks apply also to the measurement of alternating E.M.F. It is therefore necessary to determine R.M.S. values of functions likely to be encountered, and to compare the virtual with the steady. While the determination of R.M.S. values is of greatest import- ance from the application to electrical problems, it is also occasion- ally of use in problems of mechanics ; thus the calculation of what is known as a swing radius (see p. 240) is in reality a determination of a R.M.S. value. In order to convey the full interpretation of the term R.M.S. value, we shall discuss first a simple arithmetical example, then some algebraic examples, leading up finally to the trigonometric functions. Example j. The values of an alternating electric current at various times are given in the table t 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 i C o 1-8 3'5 5 6-1 6-8 6-1 5 3'5 1-8 o Find the mean value and also the R.M.S. value of the current, and compare the two values. The mean value, as before explained, is the average of the given values and is 3-96. We must now tabulate the values of the squares; thus o 3-24 12-25 25 37-21 46-24 37-21 25 12-25 3' 2 4 and o. The sum of the squares = 201-64 the mean of the squares or M.S. = for we must only reckon the end values as half-values when adding IQO MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS up the ordinates, since the end values belong equally to the sequences on either side. Thus M.S. = 20-16 and the square root of the result = R.M.S. = V2o-i6 = 4-5. This question might have been worked entirely by graphic methods, according to the following plan Plot the values of C to a base of /, giving the curve ABD in Fig. 41 ; find the area under the curve and divide by the base, thus obtaining the mean height; plot also the values of C 2 against those of t, giving the curve EFG. By graphic summation determine the area under the curve EFG and draw the line MM at the mean height of the diagram. Make MN = i unit on the scale of C 2 and on PN describe a semicircle ; produce MM to cut the semicircle in R. Then MR = 4-5 is the R.M.S. value. Thus the mean value = 3-96 and the R.M.S. value = 4-5, and the ,. R.M.S. value 4-5 ratio - - - = -2-i = 1-1 mean value 3-96 factor. ., / this ratio being termed the form a _ FIG. 41. R.M.S.

Suppose that an alternating electric current at any time follows the sine law, i. e. C = C sin qt where C is the instantaneous value of the current at any time t, and C is the maximum value of the current. Find the R.M.S. value of the current. As we have already seen, the determination of the R.M.S. value implies that first the square of the function at various times must be calculated, then the mean value of these squares found, and finally the square root of this average extracted. To assist in the study of this important problem, the curve y sin x, the simple sine curve, is shown in Fig. 42, and also the FIG. 42. R.M.S. Value of an Alternating Current. curve y sin 2 x, which is obtained from the former curve by squaring its ordinates. It will be observed that whilst for the curve y = sin x there are both positive and negative ordinates, in the case of the curve of squares all the ordinates 'are positive. Also the period of the curve of squares is noted to be one-half that of the simple curve; and therefore when calculating the mean height of this curve, it is immaterial whether the full or the half period of the simple sine curve is taken as the range. In the case with which we are here particularly concerned the C 2 2Tc square = C 2 = C 2 sin 2 qt = (i cos 2qt), and the period = , so that the integration may be performed either over the range o to - or o to -. 192 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS Taking the latter range a I q C 2 sin 2 qt dt Mean of the squares = M.S. = q = & f q (i -cos 2qt) dt* 7C Jo 2q oC 2 TTC I .in = * - --- sin 27c o-{ sin o 27T \_ 2 2q J or R.M.S. value = -707 x maximum value i. e., virtual value of current or E.M.F. = -707 x maximum value of current or E.M.F.

If a curve be drawn, the ordinates being the values of the cross sections of a solid at the various points along its length, then the area under the curve will represent, to some scale, the volume of the solid. For, considering a small element of the length, 81, if the mean area over that element is A, the o 194 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS volume SV of the small portion of the solid is A.U, and the total volume of the solid is the sum of all such small volumes, i. e., 2AS. If the length 81 is diminished until infinitely small, 2AS/ becomes fAdl, and hence Volume of solid = / Adi. J o Comparing this with the formula giving the area of a closed figure, viz.,fydx, it is seen to be of the same form, and it is made identical if A is written in place of y (i. e., areas must be plotted vertically) and / in place of x (i. e., lengths must be plotted horizontally) . When values of A and / are given the curve should be drawn and integrated by any of the given methods ; and if it is preferred to find the actual area of the figure in sq. ins. first, the number of units of volume represented will be deduced from a consideration of the scales used in the plotting. Thus if i" (horizontally) repre- sents x ft. of length, and i" (vertically) represents y sq. ft. of area, then i sq. in. of area represents xy cu. ft. of volume. To take a numerical example : If i" = 15" of length, and i" = 5 sq. ft. of area, then i sq. in. of area = x 5 = 6J cu. ft. of volume. 12 If the area is found by the sum curve this conversion is unnecessary, as the scales are settled in the course of the drawing. The Example on p. 122 is an illustration of the determination of volumes by graphic integration; in that case the actual areas of sections are not plotted directly, but values of d 2 , the multiplication by the constant factor being left until the end. Had the solid not been of circular section the actual areas would have been plotted as ordinates and the work carried on as there detailed. We thus see that the determination of the volume of any irregular solid can be effected, if the cross sections at various distances from the ends can be found, by a process of graphic integration. If, however, the law governing the variation in section is known, it may be more direct to perform the integration by algebraic methods. To take a very simple illustration : Example n. The cross section of a certain body is always equal to (5# 3 + 8) sq. ft., where x ft. is the distance of the section from one end. If the length of the body is 5 ft., find its volume. VOLUMES 195 The body might have an elevation like Fig. 43, and its cross section might be of any shape ; the only condition to be satisfied being that the area of a cross section such as that at BB must = 5* 3 +8. Thus the area at AA must = (5 X o) + 8 = 8 and area at CC = (5 X 5 3 ) + 8 = 633. f 5 C 5 Then the volume = J Q Adx = ] Q (5x 3 +8)dx +40 = 821-25 cu. ft. ~"~^^ 4 Volumes of Solids of Revolution. A solid of revolution is generated by the revolution of some closed figure round an axis which does not cut the figure. Thus, dealing with familiar solids, the right circular cone, the cylinder and the sphere are solids of revolution, being generated respectively by the revolution of a right-angled triangle about one of the sides including the right angle, a rectangle about one of its sides, and a semicircle about its diameter ; and of the less well-known solids of revolution the most important to the engineer is the hyperboloid of revolution which is generated by the revolution of a FIG hyperbola about one of its axes and occurs in the design of skew wheels. The axis about which the revolution is made in all these examples lies along a boundary of the re- volving figure; whereas an anchor ring is generated by the revolution of a circle about an axis parallel to a diameter but some distance from it. The revolving figure may have any shape whatever, the only conditions being, for the following rule to hold, that the axis about which the revolution is made does not cut the figure and that the cross section perpendicular to this axis is always circular. Imagine the revolving cross section to be of the character shown in the sketch (ABCD in Fig. 44) ; and let the revolution be about the axis of x. It is required to find the volume of the solid of revolution generated. Working entirely from first principles, i, e., reverting to our idea of dealing with a small element and then summing : if the strip MN of height y and thickness 8x revolves about OX it will generate a cylinder. The radius of this cylinder will be y and its height or length Sx ; and hence its volume = iry 2 Sx. Accordingly the volume swept out by the revolution of ABCD ig6 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS will be ^ny z Sx (the proper limits being assigned to x) approximately, or fny 2 dx accurately. Again, it will be seen that such a volume can be measured by the area of a figure, for, writing Y in place of Try 2 , the volume = fYdx, which is the standard form for an area. Hence, if values of y are given, corresponding values of Try 2 must be cal- culated and plotted as ordinates, and the area of the resulting figure found. It should be noted that fny 2 dx might be written as itfy*dx t thus saving labour by reserving the multiplication by TC until the M B X X! FIG. 44. Volume of Solid of Revolution. area has been found, i. e., the values of y 2 and not those of Try 2 are plotted as ordinates. The following example will illustrate : Example 12. The curve given by the figures in the table revolves about the axis of x; find the volume of the solid generated, the bounding planes being those through x = 2 and x = j, perpendicular to the axis of revolution. X 2 3 4 5 6 7 y 44 42 44 46 45 38 VOLUMES 197 n Values of y 2 must first be calculated, since the volume = / jty z dx = Hence the table for plotting reads X 2 3 4 5 6 7 y* 1936 1764 1936 2116 2025 1444 and the values of y 2 are plotted vertically, the curve ABC (Fig. 45) resulting. This curve is next integrated from the axis of x as base, the curve DEF resulting; the polar distance being taken as 3, so that the new O 6 / FIG. 45. Volume of Solid of Revolution. vertical scale = 3 X old vertical scale. It must be remembered, how- ever, that the base from which the summation has been made in the figure is not the true base, since the first value of the ordinate is 1400 and not o; thus a rectangle 1400X5 has been omitted. Hence we must start to number our scale at 7000 ; and according to this f 7 numbering the last ordinate reads 9580, hence / z y z dx = 9580, or /? Volume = TC I y z dx = TT x 9580 = 30,100 cu. ins. In cases in which y and x are connected by a law the integra- 198 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS tion may be performed in accordance with the rules for the integration of functions. Example 13. Find the volume of a paraboloid of revolution and compare it with the volume of the circumscribing cylinder. o Y B FIG. 46. A paraboloid of revolution is generated by the revolution of a parabola about its axis. Suppose the parabola is placed as shown in Fig. 46; the revolution is therefore about OX. The equation to the curve OB is y 2 = $ax (see Part I, p. 106), i. e., if OA = h, (AB) 2 = 4 ah. Hence the volume of the solid swept out by the revolution of OBA [h [h = Tty z dx = TU I qax dx J J _ 4 a7 L><A a _ 7,2 Now the volume of the circumscribing cylinder = TC X 4ah X h and hence the volume of the paraboloid = - X vol. of circumscribing cylinder. Example 14. The curve y 2 = 64 zx 2 revolves about the axis of y. Find the volume of the solid generated, the limits to be applied to x being o and 5. This differs from the cases previously treated in that the revolution is to be about the y axis and not about the x axis. Hence the volume = fnx 2 dy and not Jwy*dx, the y replacing x and vice versa. Also another point must be noted : the limits given are those for x, whereas the limits in the integral fiix 2 dy must apply to the I.V., which is now y. Therefore a preliminary calculation must be made to determine the corresponding limits of y y 2 = 64- x = o, y x = 5, 2 = 64, y = 8 = 14- y = 374- VOLUMES 199 The double signs occurring here may possibly confuse, but actually the equation given is that of an ellipse, symmetrical about the axes of x and y, and the volume required is the volume generated by the revolution of the two shaded portions (Fig. 47), which will be twice that generated by one of these; hence, taking the upper shaded portion, we use the positive limits, viz., 3-74 and 8. f 8 f 8 / v 2 \ Then the volume = I r:x z dy ni ( 32 - }dy J 3-74 ' J 3-ll\ J 2 / ' f y3\8 = m say if ) 6 /3-74 = 7c(256 85-3-H9-5 + 8-7) = 59 '9^. The solid due to the revolution of the lower portion will be also 59-97^, and hence the total volume generated = 119-871; = 376 cu. units. FIG. 47.

The solid generated by the revolution of an ellipse about its major axis is known as a prolate spheroid; while if the revolution is about the minor axis the solid is an oblate spheroid.

In only a few cases is the evaluation of the integral simple; and for most curves an approximation is taken, e. g., to find the perimeter of an ellipse by this method one would become involved in a most difficult integral known as an elliptic integral, this being treated later in the chapter; and hence the approximate rules are nearly always used in practice. To deal with a case of a very simple character : Example 16. If y ax-j-b, find the length of arc between x m and x = n.

Area of Surface of a Solid of Revolution. When a solid of revolution is generated, the boundary of the revolving figure sweeps out the surface of that solid. The volume of the solid depends upon the area of the revolving figure, whilst the surface depends upon the perimeter of the revolving figure. To find the surface generated by the revolution of the curve CD about OX (Fig. 55) we must find the sum of the surfaces swept out by small portions of the curve, such as PQ. Let PQ = a small element of arc = 8s. Then the outside surface of the solid generated by the revolution of the strip PQMN about OX will be equal to the circumference of the base X slant height, i.e., 2ny8s. Hence the total surface will be the sum of all similar elements, i. e., \r\x = b > 2Tcy8s, approximately, or if 8x becomes smaller and smaller ^L_ J iC tt fx = b Surface = I 2nyds. J x = a * For ds we may substitute its value, viz. /b 2ny (J 2nyJ !--} .dx. angle, viz., 1-0664. Multiplication by 40, i.e., 42, gives the result 44-79. For the convenience of readers interested in this question, and who desire a result more exact than that given by the approximate r fi _ rules, a curve is here given (Fig. 54) with values of I v i K^in 2 ^ d$ J o plotted against values of K; and for the full perimeter of the ellipse the ordinates of this curve must be multiplied by twice the length of the major axis. E. g., if the major axis = 16 and the minor axis = 10 K = - g-^ = -7807. Erecting an ordinate at K = -7807 to meet the curve, we read the value 1-294; multiplying this by 32, we arrive at the figure 41-41, which is thus the required perimeter.

B CENTROIDS 211 Centre of Gravity and Centroid. The Centre of Gravity (C. of G.) of a body is that point at which the resultant of all the forces acting on the body may be supposed to act, '. e., it is the balancing point. The term Centroid has been applied in place of C. of G. when dealing with areas ; and as our work here is more con- cerned with areas it will be convenient to adopt the term centroid. From the definition it will be seen that the whole weight of a body may be supposed to act at its C. of G. ; and in problems in Mechanics this property is most useful. Thus, movements of a complex system of weights may be reduced to the movement of the C. of G. of these. Or to take another instance : in structural work, in connection with fixed beams unsymmetrically loaded, it is necessary to find the position of the centroid of the bending- moment diagram. It is thus extremely important that rules should be found for fixation of the position of the centroid in ' all cases ; and the methods Jt J JL jt & t i , ,..,,. Tn t ff/2 "?3 III A. iffS adopted may be divided into two classes : (a) algebraic (in- " IG " 5 8. -Centre of Gravity or Centroid. eluding purely algebraic, and partly algebraic and partly graphic), (b) graphic. The rules will best be approached by way of a simple example on moments. In place of areas or solids, afterwards to be dealt with, let us consider the case of a uniform bar loaded as shown in Fig. 58. For equilibrium the two conditions to be satisfied are (1) The upward forces balance the downward forces. (2) The right-hand moments about any point balance the left- hand moments about the same point; or, in other words, the algebraic sum of the moments about any point is zero. If C is the balancing point or fulcrum, the upward reaction of the fulcrum = M = fni-^-m 2 -}-m 3 -{-m t -\-m 5 from condition (i). Taking moments about A, let x (x bar) be the distance AC. Then, by condition (2) or The product of a force into its distance from a fixed point or axis is called its first moment about that point or axis ; whilst the 212 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS product of a force into the square of its distance from a fixed point is called its second moment about that point. Hence our statement concerning the distance AC can be written 1st moments x = masses To extend this rule to meet the case of a number of scattered masses arranged as in Fig. 59, the co-ordinates of the centroid must be found, viz., x and y. Thus FIG. 59. Centroid. 2mx 2 1st moments about OY and 2m 2 masses _ ^ m y _ ^ 1 s * moments about OX ^ "" 2m 2 masses If the masses are not all in one plane, their C. of G. must be found by marking their positions in a plan and elevation drawing and determining the C. of G. of the elevations and also that of their plan. Thus the C. of G. is located by its plan and elevation. It will be observed that some form of summation is necessary for the determination of the positions of centroids or centres of gravity; and this summation may be called by a different name, viz., integration, all the rules of which may be utilised; the integration in some cases being graphic, in some cases algebraic, and in others a combination of the two. CENTROIDS 213 Rules for the Determination of the Centroid of an Area. Let it be required to find the centroid of the area ABCD in Fig. 60. The area may be considered to be composed of an infinite number of small elements or masses, each being the mass of some thin strip like PQMN ; the co-ordinates of the centre of gravity of which may be determined in the manner already explained. ._.b N M B FIG. 60.

To fix the actual position of the centroid some other line must be drawn, say a horizontal line, the intersection of which with the centroid vertical is the centroid. Thus the height of the centroid above OX must be found; this being denoted by y. To find y. The whole mass of the strip PQMN may be supposed to act at R, its mid-point, because the strip is of uniform density ; and hence the moment of the strip PQMN about OX y = mass X distance = py 8xx- 2 2 b ist moments about OX Hence y = - , 2, masses b 2 f b py dx I y dx a. J a As in previous cases, the integration may be algebraic, this being so when y is stated in terms of x, or graphic, when a curve or values of y and x are given. Suppose the latter is the case, and we desire to find x T~ fxydx Then x = J T Z T - Jydx and the values of the numerator and denominator must be found separately. Each of these gives the area of a figure, for if Y is written in place of xy, the numerator becomes fYdx, which is the standard expression for the area under the curve in which Y is plotted against x; and the denominator is already in the required form. Thus a new set of values must be calculated, viz., those of Y, these being obtained by multiplication together of corresponding values of x and y; and these values of Y are plotted to a base of x. Then the area under the curve so obtained is the value of the numerator, and the denominator is the area under the curve with y plotted against x; and, finally, division of the one by the other fixes the value of x.

It is required to find the C. of G. of a thin plate having the shape shown in Fig. 62. Show how this may be done. Draw two convenient axes at right angles and divide up the area into thin strips by lines drawn parallel to OY. Draw in, also, the mid-ordinates of these strips. The area of any strip can be assumed CENTROIDS 217 to be "mean height X thickness "; and therefore measure ordinates such as MN and multiply by the thickness or width of the strip. Repeat for each strip, and the sum of all these will be the area of the figure. To find x. OA X = the distance of the centre of ist strip from OY so that the area of strip X OA V = ist moment of strip about OY. Hence, multiply the area of each strip by the distance of its mid- ordinate from OY and add the results ; then the sum will be the ist moment of the area about OY.

The area of the strip has already been found ; multiply this by AjR and repeat for all strips. The sum of all such will be the ist moment about OX; dividing this by the area of the figure, the distance, y, of the centroid from OX is found. [Note that R is the mid-point of MN and not of NA X , because OX is a purely arbitrary axis.] For this example the calculation would be set out thus Strip Length of mid-ordinate (like MN) Width of Strip Area of Strip Distance of centre from OY (like OAj) Distance of centre from OX (like RAi) ist moment about OX ist moment about OY I i-55 5 775 25 2-0 1-55 19 2 2-79 5 1-395 75 2-O 2-79 1-05 3 3'44 5 1-720 1-25 2-18 3-75 2-05 4 3-85 5 1-925 i-75 2-27 4*37 3-36 5 4-01 5 2-005 2-25 2-32 4-64 4-50 6 3-92 5 1-960 2-75 2-3 4-5i 5-40 7 3-60 5 i -800 3-25 2-18 3-92 5-85 8 3-26 5 1-630 3-75 2-04 3-32 6-II 9 2-66 5 i-33o 4-25 2'*O2 2-68 5-65 10 1-47 5 735 4-75 1-95 i-43 3*49 Totals I5-275 32-96 37-65 and 15- = 6 32-96 y = - - 2-16. 15-28 Thus the position of G is fixed by the intersection of a horizontal at a height of 2-16 with a vertical 2-46 units distance from OY.

We first plot the load curve from the figures given in the table (Fig. 64) ; and next we sum curve this curve, taking a polar distance of 10 horizontal units ; the last ordinate of this sum curve reads 4-27, so that the total load is 4-27 tons. We now set off AD equal in length to BC, and with this as polar distance we sum curve the curve AEC fiom the vertical axis as base. This sum curve finishes at the point G on the horizontal through C, and a vertical through G is the centroid vertical, distant 9-2 ft. from the end A. For purposes of calculation, the whole load may be supposed to 220 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS act in this line; the total load is 4-27 tons, and taking moments round A 4-27X9-2 = R B x 16 whence R B = 2-46 tons and R A = 4-272-46 = 1-81 tons. We now set up AH, a distance to represent R A , to the new vertical scale, and then a horizontal through H is the true base line of shear. At the point P the shear is zero; but the shear is measured by the rate of change of bending moment, so that zero shear corresponds to maximum bending moment; and hence, grouping our results Reaction at left-hand support = i 81 tons Reaction at right-hand support = 2-46 tons and the maximum bending moment occurs at a distance of 8-4 ft. from the left-hand end.

If the section is composed of a combination of simple figures, such as rectangles or circles, as in the great majority of cases it is, its centroid can be found by loading each of its portions, into which for purposes of calculation it may be divided, with a weight proportional to its area, and treating the question as one for the determination of the C. of G. of a number of isolated weights.

Determine the position of the centroid of the bridge rail section shown at (a), Fig. 66. This example presents rather more difficulty than the one imme- diately preceding it. The plan of procedure is, for cases such as this, 222 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS that adopted in the work on the calculation of weights, viz., we first treat the section as " solid " and then subtract the part cut away. Neglecting the small radii at the corners, and treating the section as " solid," the section has the form shown at (b), Fig. 66. 2 3 *7 The area of AB = -i-X- = 2-52 sq. ins., and its centroid is at G 2 , 10 4 the intersection of its diagonals 3 tj Similarly the area of CD = |x- = 1-313 sq. ins., and its centroid is at Gj. For the part cut away (see (c), Fig. 66) The area of EHM = -Xy!) = -221 sq. in.; and we know from Part I, p. 130, that its centroid G 8 is distant -424 X radius, i.e., 424 X -375 or *I59* from EM. Again, the area of EF = >X- = -516 sq. in., and its centroid is I o 4 at G 4 . Our problem is thus reduced to that of determining the C. of G. of four isolated weights, two of which act in the direction opposed to that of the others, placed as shown at (d), Fig. 66. Let the centroid of the whole section be at G, distant x from O. Now the upward forces = the downward forces and thus R G +'5i6+-22i = 2-52 + 1-313 whence R G = 3-096. Also, by taking moments about O (3-096 X *) + (-516 X -344) + (-221 X -847) = (1-313 X-i88) + (2-52X1-094) whence x = -855 in. or the centroid of the section is '855" distant from the outside of the flange. Centroids found by Algebraic Integration. Suppose that the equation of the bounding curve is given, then the centroid of the area between the curve, the axis and the bounding ordinates may be determined by algebraic integration. We have already seen that Ixydx ~ly z dx x = -. and y = ^, lydx lydx so that if y is stated as a function of x, xy and y 2 may be expressed in terms of x, and the integration performed according to the rules given. The examples here given should be carefully studied, for there CENTROIDS 223 are many possibilities of error arising due to the incorrect substitution of limits. Example 27.

The vertex is at A and the ordinate at B, viz., BC is ; the loading being w units per foot and I being the span. We wish to determine the position of the centroid of the figure ABC so that we may find the moment of the area ABC about AD, and finally the deflection at A.

The methods given for the determination of the centroids of irregular areas apply equally well when solids are concerned. For if A is the area of the cross section of a solid at any point along its length, distant x, say, from one end, and the length is increased by a small amount 8x (and if this is small there will be no appreciable change in the value of A), then the increase in the volume == AS* or the increase in the weight = pA8x, p being the density. The moment of this element about the end = pAS* x x so that x f l ist moments _ J Q 2 weights /i pAdx Axdx 226 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS As before, two cases arise, viz., (a) when values of A and x are given, and (b) when A is denned in terms of x. To deal with these In case (a) plot one curve in which A is the ordinate and x is n the abscissa and find the area under it ; this is the value of I A.dx. Jo Plot a second curve whose ordinates are the products of corresponding values of A and x and find the area; this is the value of the numerator, and division of the latter area by the former gives the value of r. Thus the centroid vertical is found, and if the solid is symmetrical about the axis of x, this is all that is required; otherwise the centroid horizontal must be found, the procedure being exactly that previously described when dealing with areas in place of volumes. An example on the application of this method is here worked.

In the original drawing the scales were : i* vertically = 2 sq. ft., and i* horizontally = 2 ft., so that i sq. in. of area represented 4 cu. ft. of volume. The area under the curve EF was found, by means of the planimeter, to be 13-66 sq. ins., and accordingly the volume = 13-66x4 = 54-64 cu. ft.

If a body is immersed in a liquid, then the pressure per sq. in. of surface is not uniform over the solid, for the pressure is proportional to the depth. The point at CENTRE OF PRESSURE 233 which the total pressure may be supposed to act is known as the centre of pressure (C. of P.). To find positions of centres of pressure we are, in effect, finding centres of gravity of solids whose density is proportional to the distance from some fixed axis. The C. of G. found in the example last worked is in reality the C. of P. of a triangular lamina immersed vertically in a liquid, with OY as the level of the top of the liquid. Just as, when discussing the stability of solids in air, we have supposed the whole mass to be concentrated at the C. of G., so now, when the solid is immersed in a liquid, the total pressure may be assumed to act at the one point, viz., the C. of P. To find the positions of the C. of P. for various sections and solids we must start from first principles, dealing with the pressure on small elements, and then summing. Example 36. Find the whole pressure on one side of a rectangular sluice gate of depth 5 ft. and breadth 3 ft., if the upper edge is 10 ft. below the level of the water (which we shall speak of as the still water surface level or S.W.S.L). Find also the depth of the centre of pressure. Consider a strip of the gate Sx deep and x ft. below S.W.S.L. (Fig. 74)- Then the area of the strip =3x8* and the pressure per sq. ft = K x depth. Now at a depth of x ft. the pressure per sq. ft. = weight of a column of water x ft. high and i sq. ft. in section, i. e., wt. of x cu. ft. of water or 62-4^ Ibs. Also the pressure is the same in all directions; and thus the pressure on the strip = 38x^x62-4^ and the moment of the pressure on the strip about S.W.S.L. f!5 Hence the total pressure = I i8j-2xdxlbs.

The product of a mass into the square of its distance from some fixed point or axis is called its second moment about that point or axis; and for a number of masses the sum of their respective second moments becomes the second moment, or moment of inertia of the system. When the number of masses is infinite, i. e., when they merge into one mass, the limiting value of the sum of the second moments is spoken of as the moment of inertia of the body. The moment of inertia of a section or body determines to a large extent the strength of the section or body to resist certain strains ; the symbol I, which always stands for moment of inertia, occurs in numerous engineering formulae ; also when dealing with the formulae of angular movement the mass is replaced by I, and so on, so that it is extremely important that one should be able to calculate values of I for various sections or solids. A few examples will emphasise the frequent recurrence of the letter I. Consider first the case of a loaded beam : Let the figure (Fig. 77) represent the section of a beam loaded in any way. Then it is customary to make the following assumptions (a) There is to be no resultant stress over the section, i. e., the sum of the tensions = the sum of the compressions. 238 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS (b) That the stress varies as the strain, and that the Young's modulus for the material is the same for tension as for compression. (c) That the original radius of curvature of the beam is exceed- ingly great compared with the dimensions of the cross section of the beam. The surface of the beam which is neither compressed nor stretched is spoken of as the neutral surface, and the line in which this cuts any cross section of the beam is known as the neutral axis. Referring to Fig. 77, let NN be the neutral axis, and let o- be FIG. 77. the stress at unit distance from NN, i. e., a-y = the stress at a distance y from NN. Thus the stress at y on a section of breadth b and depth 8y = a-y, and the force = stress X area = b8y X <ry. Now the forces on one side of NN must balance those on the other (by hypothesis). rr, bdya-y = o. but I 1 a-bdy x y = total ist moment of the forces and the line about which this is zero must pass through the centroid of the section ; hence the line NN passes through the centroid. The tensile and compressive forces form a couple, the moment of which = 2 force x distance = ;x \ b8y<ry x y MOMENT OF INERTIA 239 i. e., in the limit the moment of resistance of the internal forces = o- / bdyxy 2 , i. e., a- /area x (distance) 2 J ~ Y 2 i. e., a- (2nd moment of section about NN) = o-I. If M is the bending moment at the section, i. e., the moment of the external forces, it must be exactly balanced by the moment of the internal forces, so that M = oT. Also if /j = maximum tensile stress and = o-Yj / 2 = maximum compressive stress and = o-Y 2 A ft M then o- = = f- = T *i *2 L M / or, in general, T ^ v~ Hence, in considering the strength of a beam to resist bending, it is necessary to know the moment of inertia of its section; knowing this and the bending moment, we can calculate the maximum skin stress. As a further illustration of the importance of I in engineering formulae let us deal with the following case : If a magnet is allowed to swing in a uniform field, the time T of a complete oscillation is given by where I = moment of inertia of the magnet M = magnetic moment of the magnet H = strength of the uniform field in which the magnet swings. In this case the I of a cuboid is required; and it will be seen that no mention of the mass is made in this fortnula. Actually the I takes account not only of the mass, but also of its disposi- tion, the latter being a most important factor in all questions of angular movement. Thus for a mass of i Ib. swinging at the end of an arm of 10 ft. the energy would be io 2 , i. e., 100 times that of the same mass placed at a radius of i ft. only, although the angular velocities in the two cases were the same. The reason for the presence of I in formulae concerning the energy of rotation will be better understood if the next Example is carefully studied. 240 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS Example 37. A disc revolves at n revs, per sec. ; find an expression for its energy of rotation, or its kinetic energy. If the total mass = ra, let a small element 8m of mass be considered, distant r from the axis of rotation (Fig. 78). Now the linear velocity at the rim = V = 2?rwR and the angular velocity &> = number of radians per sec. then or Ra, = 2TCWR = V V thus co is constant throughout, whilst V depends on the radius. Kinetic Energy of mass 8m _ massx (veloc.) 2 _ 8mxv 2 FIG. 78. Hence the total K.E. of the disc = = r z 8m. -r 2 dm _ co a f n 2 Jo massx (distance) 2 = w Xl for disc. 2 Thus the K.E. = Io> 2 . Comparing this formula with the cor- responding one for linear motion, viz., K.E. = mv z , we see that ~6 when changing from linear to angular movement, I takes the place of m and <a the place of v. Suppose that the average velocity v t = r^ then my, 2 = Io> 2 2g i. e., mr or Hence I is of the nature of mass x (distance) 2 , so that if the whole mass were concentrated at the distance r t from the axis, the K.E. of the system would be unaltered. Hence the distance r t (which is usually denoted by k) is referred to as the swing or spin radius, or radius of gyration, i. e., it is the effective radius as regards all questions of rotation. MOMENT OF INERTIA 241 [Note that k is not the arithmetic mean of the various radii, but the R.M.S. value for h = J * (radius)* number considered J number considered In general, I can be written as mk 2 (if dealing with a mass) or Ak 2 (if concerned with an area). Method of Determination of the Value of I for any Section. Whilst it is found desirable to commit to memory the values of I for the simpler sections, it is not wise to trust entirely to this plan. It is a far better policy to understand thoroughly the meaning of the term "moment of inertia," and to derive its value for any section or solid by working directly from first principles. Thus, knowing that the moment of inertia is obtained by summing up a series of second moments, we divide the area or mass into a number of very small elements, find the area or mass of each of these and multiply each area or mass by the square of its distance from the axis or point about which moments are required ; the sum of all such products being the value of I. If the length of the swing radius is required, it can be deter- mined from the relation I = Ak 2 (for an area) or I = Mk 2 (for a solid) ; the area or mass being obtained by the summation of the areas or the masses of the separate elements. T , /2 second moments of elements Thus k = \i= , , . \ 2 areas or masses of elements Confusion often arises over the units in which I is measured; and to avoid this it is well to think of I in the form Ak 2 or M& 2 , when it is observed that I is of the nature area x (length) 2 , *'. e., (inches) 2 x (inches) 2 or (inches) 4 for a section, and massx (length) 2 or Ibs. X (inches) 2 for a solid. The moment of inertia must always be expressed with regard to some particular axis; and it is frequently necessary to change from one axis to another. To assist in this change of axis the following rules are necessary : The Parallel Axis Theorem. By means of this theorem, if I is known about an axis through the C. of G., the I about an axis parallel to the first can be deduced. In Fig. 79 NN is the neutral axis of the section; and the moment of inertia is required about AB, i. e. IAB is required. R 242 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS Dealing with the strip indicated I AB of the strip = pb8y x y 2 . Hence the total I AB = pfbdyxy 2 '= P fbdyx(Y-d) 2 = pfbdy X Y 2 + P /My X d 2 -2 P fbdyYd. Now fpbdy X Y 2 = the total I NN and fpbdy X d z = d 2 Jpbdy = d 2 X total mass = md 2 also 2dfpbdyxY 2d x total ist moment about NN = 2d X o (for the moments on the strips on one side' of NN balance those on the other) = o.

MOMENT OF INERTIA 243 Theorem of Perpendicular Axes. We require to find I about an axis perpendicular to the plane of the paper and passing through ; such being spoken of as a polar second moment. To distinguish between the moment about an axis perpendicular to the plane of the paper and that about an axis in the paper, we shall adopt the notation I for the former and I ox or I OY , as the case may be, for the latter. To find I o : Consider a small element of mass 8m at P (Fig. 80). Then I ox of this element = 8m x y 2 , I OY 8mx x 2 , r 2 = x 2 +y 2 and I = 8m xr 2 . 8m. r 2 = 8m.x 2 +8m.y 2 fdm . r 2 = fdm . x 2 +fdm . y 2 total I = total I OY + total I ox I = FIG. 80. Now hence and *'. e., or so that if the moments of inertia about two perpendicular axes in the area are known, the sum o! these is the moment of inertia about an axis perpendicular to the area and through the point of intersection of these axes. In special cases for which I ox = I oy then I = 2l ox To find the Relation between the Moment of Inertia about a Point in a Solid Body and the Moments of Inertia about three mutually Perpendicular Axes meeting in that Point. Thus, referring to Fig. 81, it is desired to connect I o with I ox> I OY and I oz . Consider a small element of the mass 8m placed at the point P. Then if PS = x PT = y PM = z OP = r (ON) 2 +(NM) 2 +(PM) 2 = (OP) 2 , and ON = PS, NM = PT *. e., x 2 -\-y 2 -\-z 2 = r 2 . Now I ox of the element = Sw(PN) 2 = 8m(z 2 +y 2 ) and in like manner I OY = 8m(x 2 +z 2 ) and I oz = 8m(y 2 +x 2 ) also I = Sw(QP) 2 = 8mr 2 . Thus I = Smr 2 = Sw(* 2 +y 2 +* 2 ) = 8m / 244 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS And for the total mass or total I = -( We may now apply the principles already enunciated to the determination of the moments of inertia of various sections and FIG. 81. solids ; and we take as our first example the case of a rectangular section.

To find the modulus of rigidity of a sample of wire by the method of torsional oscillations, various forms of vibrators may be used. In the calculations which follow the experiments, the moment of inertia of the vibrator occurs, so that it is necessary to understand how to obtain this. To illustrate by an example of one form of compound vibrator, suppose that the I about an axis through the C. of G. of the one shown in Fig. 86 is required. Let m { = mass of AB, r l be its radius and ^ its length m 2 = mass of C and also of D, r z be its radius and / 2 its length. fr 2 / 2 \ Then I NN of AB = w a ( +- 1 ) (from Example 41, p. 248) c r i r z z , ^2 2 \ rf (f r tne inner radius\ and IofC^m- 1 = ^ 250 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS by the parallel^ - m z\^ -r I2 y-r w 2 t - m z ^ \ This is also the L \4 of D. 2 4 V axis theorem. ) L NN total I NN = Maxwell's needle is a very convenient form of compound vibrator, and is utilised to determine the modulus of rigidity of the sample of wire by which it is supported. It consists essentially of a tube along which weights may be moved from one position to another, the movement being a definite amount. Referring to Fig. 87 m^ = the mass of each of the movable weights w 2 = the mass of each of the fixed weights. FIG. 87. FIG. 88. Then the time of torsional oscillations is measured when the movable weights are placed as shown, and again when they are moved to the centre; and it can be proved that the modulus of rigidity depends upon the difference between the moments of inertia under the two sets of conditions. Thus, since a mass m t is shifted from the position AB to the position NA, the only difference in the moments of inertia is that due to the changing of the C. of G. of a mass (m^ m 2 ) from a distance fa from the axis of oscillation to Ja; for I NN of m. 2 is unaltered. q r i6 Hence the change of I \ , T considering one mass onlyJ " l 2 ~~ ^ m i~ i "'^\- L ^r ^ (j \ a 2 ) = (w x m 2 )a 2 .

The graphic construction now to be described is extremely simple to understand, and has the additional merit of being utilised to give 3rd, 4th and higher moments if desired. It being required to find the ist and 2nd moments about MM of the rail section shown in Fig. 89, and also the position of the neutral axis, the procedure is as follows : Construction. Divide the half -area into a number of strips by means of horizontal lines; the half-area only being treated, since the section is symmetrical. At a convenient distance h from MM draw M X M X parallel to MM. From P, the end of one of the horizontals, draw PR per- pendicular to MM, and from P 1 , the other end of the same horizontal, drop PKR 1 perpendicular to M X M X ; join R X R and note Q, its point of intersection with P 1 ?. Repeat the process for all the other horizontals (of which only three are shown in the diagram) and 252 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS join up all the points like Q, thus obtaining the curve CQLS, which is termed the ist moment curve. To obtain the 2nd moment curve treat the area CPKXSLQ in the same way as the original area was treated, i. e., drop QR" perpendicular to M. 1 M. l and join RR"; join up all points like Q 1 and the 2nd moment curve is obtained.

To distinguish which area is to be read off by the planimeter the following rule should be observed : Read the area between the ist or 2nd moment curve, as the case may be, and the side of the original contour from which we dropped perpendiculars on the line about which we required moments.

Find the swing radius about the major axis of the ellipse whose equation is CHAPTER VIII POLAR CO-ORDINATES Polar Co-ordinates. A point on a plane may be fixed by its distances from two fixed axes, or by its distance along a line which makes a definite angle with some fixed axis. In the former case we are concerned with rectangular co-ordinates and the point is written as the point (x, y) ; whilst in the latter case the co- ordinates are polar and the point is denoted by (r, ff), r being the length along the ray inclined at an angle 6 to the fixed axis. It is really immaterial as to what line is taken as the fixed axis : in many cases the horizontal axis is taken, but in order to agree with the convention adopted for the measurement of angles (see Part I, Chapter VI) we shah 1 here consider the N. and S. line, i. e., a vertical line, as the starting axis and regard all angles as positive when measured in a right-handed direction from that axis. A point is next fixed on that line from which all the rays or radii vectors originate, and this point is spoken of as the pole for the system : thus the reason for the term polar is seen. To illustrate this -method of plot- ting, let us refer to Fig. 92. Taking OY as the starting axis and O as the pole, the point (2, 35) is obtained by drawing a line making 35 with OY and then stepping off a distance OP along it to represent 2 units, i. e., r=2 and 0=35. In like manner Q is the point (17, 289) ; whilst R is the point (2-4, 20). One advantage of this method of plotting is that it is not necessary to classify into quadrants and to remember the arrange- s 257 FIG. 92. 258 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS ment of the algebraic signs ; all lengths measured outwards from the pole being reckoned as positive.

Angle below horizontal . . o 10 20 3 40 5 60 70 80 90 1800 800 600 480 In reality we have to plot a number of polar co-ordinates, the lengths representing the values of the candle power ; but since the horizontal axis is specified, we shall take that as the main axis. Draw rays making 10, 20, 30, etc. (Fig. 93), with the horizontal axis, and along these lines set off distances to represent the respective candle powers, always measuring outwards from the centre. Join the ends of the rays and the polar diagram is completed. The Archimedean spiral and the logarithmic or equiangular spiral, important in connection -IOOO ^ with the forms of cams and gear wheels respectively, may be easily plotted from their polar equations. Thus the equation to the Ar- chimedean spiral is r=aO, and the equation to the equiangular spiral is r=ae be ; indicating that in the former case the rays, for equal angular intervals, are the con- secutive terms in an arithmetic progression, whilst in the latter case the rays are in geometric progression. To illustrate the forms of these curves by taking numerical examples : Example 2. Plot the Archimedean spiral ^=-573^, showing one convolution. FIG. 93. Candle Power of Arc Lamp.

It will be seen that the ratio of second ray _ -5699 _ first ray -5 third ray = -6495 _ ^ second ray -5699 so that this spiral might alternatively have been defined as one for which the rays at equiangular intervals of 30 form a geometric pro- gression in which the common ratio is 1-14, the first ray being '5". Comparing the given equation r '$e' 259 with that connecting the tensions at the ends of a belt passing round a pulley, viz., T = te* 8 , we observe that the forms are identical, or in other words the equiangular spiral might be used to demonstrate the growth of the ten- sion as the belt continuously em- braces more of the pulley. Selecting any point P on the spiral, and drawing the tangent PT there and also the ray OP which makes an angle < with the tangent, it is found that cot < = -25 = co- efficient of 6 in the original equation. This relation would hold wherever the point P was taken on the spiral, so that the angle between the ray and the curve is constant : and thus the spiral is called " equiangular." If cot < = i, < = 45 and r = ae 6 , or taking a = i, r = e 6 and log e r = 6. Thus a spiral could be constructed in which the angles (in radians) would be the values of the logs of the rays : this spiral, however, is extremely tedious to draw, and its value consists merely in its geometric demonstration of the relationship between the natural logarithms and their numbers.

Use of Polar Co-ordinates for the Determination of Areas. Polar co-ordinates may be usefully employed to find areas of certain figures. It is stated in the previous work on mensuration that Area of sector of circle = where = angle of the sector in radians. N P V X FIG. 96. FIG. 97. Let P and Q (Fig. 97) be the two points (r, 6} and (r+8r, 0+ SO) and close to one another. Then, since r and r+&r differ very slightly Area POQ = and the total area AOB = or re? r z d0 J e l approximately exactly. For the evaluation of this integral the working may be either graphic or algebraic, according to the manner in which the relation between r and is stated. As a simple illustration we may take the case of a circle of radius a. The area of the circle was found at an earlier stage (see p. 225) by evaluating fydx, i. e., by expressing the integral in terms of the rectangular co-ordinates. To evaluate the integral, however, it was found necessary to make the substitution x = a sin 6, the change thus being from rectangular to polar co-ordinates. 262 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS Evidently the rotating ray is constant in length and equal to a, the radius of the circle, and the limits to 6 are o and 2ir, if the full area is required ; hence fZir [2* Area of circle = I \d*d6 = Ja 2 1 d& = Aa 2 . 2ir Jo Jo = TO?.

The use of the Rousseau diagram simplifies the determination of the mean spherical candle power of a lamp. The candle power of the lamp varies according to the direction in which the illumination is directed (cf . Fig. 93) ; in the case there discussed, however, we considered the illumination in one plane only. If we imagine the polar curve to revolve round the vertical axis we see that a surface is obtained by means of which the illumination in any direction can be measured. The mean of all these candle powers is spoken of as the mean spherical candle power of the lamp. If the arc is placed at the centre of a spheri- cal enclosure, of radius R, then, if IM is the mean spherical candle power (M.S.C.P.) of the lamp, the total illumination is expressed by 47rR 2 lM : this total might be arrived at, however, by summing the products of the candle power in any direction into the area of the zone over which this intensity is spread; and putting this statement into the form of an equation, 47rR 2 I M = 2IA, where I is the intensity on a zone of surface area A. POLAR CO-ORDINATES 263 To find the M.S.C.P. proceed as follows: Suppose that the lamp is at O (Fig. 98). With centre O and any convenient radius R describe a semicircle ; also let the polar diagram be as shown (the curve OPQMC) . The greatest candle power is that given by OC ; draw a horizontal through N, the point in which the line OC meets the circumference of the semicircle, and make ab = OC. Through a and b draw verticals and through A and B draw horizontals, thus obtaining the rectangle DE ; draw a number of rays, OP, OQ, OS, etc., and also horizontals through the points p, q, s, etc., marking along these lines distances equal to OP, OQ, OS, etc., working from DF as base. By joining up the points so obtained the curve FL6D is obtained, known as the Rousseau FIG. curve ; then the mean height of this curve (which can readily be obtained by means of a planimeter) gives the M.S.C.P. of the lamp. Proof of this Construction. Let IM = M.S.C.P. of the lamp 2 area of zonexC.P. then 4irR*. Consider the zone generated by the revolution of TN ( = 8s) about AB ; its area is of the form 27rySs and the intensity of illumination is OC, say. The length y is the projection on the horizontal axis through O of either the line OT, the line ON, or the line midway between these (for these differ in length but slightly if 8s is taken as very small), i. e., y = OT cos 6 or y .= Rcos0. 264 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS Hence, for this zone, the illumination = candle power x area = OCX27rRcos0Ss = a&X27rRxfl'ifor-r- = cosflf v OS ) Hence the total illumination = 27rR X area under the curve FL&D and thus Total illumination 2?rR X area under the curve FL&D M = 47rR 2 47rR 2 _ area under the curve FL&D ~^zKT = mean height of the curve FL&D since 2R is the base of the curve. Dr. Fleming's Graphic Method for the Determination of R.M.S. Values. The determination of R.M.S. values is of some importance to electrical engineers, and the subject, previously dis- cussed in Chapter VII, is here treated from a different aspect. Instead of squaring the given values of the current and then extracting the square root of the mean of these squares, we may, by a simple graphic construction, obtain the mean of the squares very readily. Let the values of an alternating current at various times be as in the table : time t . . o 001 002 003 004 005 006 007 008 Current C 5 8 12 7 -6 -8-3 -3 5 then, to find the R.M.S. value of C we proceed as follows : Treat the given values as polar co-ordinates, taking t for the angles and C for the rays. Select some convenient scale for t, say 20 -ooi sec., and a scale for C, say i"=4 units, these being the scales chosen for the original drawing of which Fig. 99 is a copy to POLAR CO-ORDINATES 265 about one-half scale; and set out a polar diagram as indicated, making OA = +5, Oa = 6, etc. Join the extremities of the rays, so obtaining, with the first and last rays, the closed figure ABCDaE. Measure the area of this figure by means of a planimeter in this case the area was found to be 4-23 sq. ins. Now the area of the figure = %fr z d& = %fC 2 dt, or so that if we divide twice the area by the range in t, the mean value of the squares is determined. In this case the range of t = 160 = 2-79 radians, and also J"C 2 dt = 2 Xi6x 4-23 = 135-5, f r I "=4 units, and thus i sq. in. = 16 sq. units. Then M.S. = 279 = 48-65, and hence R.M.S. = = 6-98. The rule for the area of a figure, viz., %J"r 2 dO, may be usefully employed to find the height of the centroid of an area above a certain base. Example 5. Find the height above the base OX of the centroid of the irregular area OABX [(a) Fig. 100]. fir 10 a r B 8 12 16 EO (O FIG. 100. Centroid of Irregular Area by Polar Diagram. 266 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS To do this, first divide the base into a number of equal divisions and erect mid-ordinates in the usual way. Measure these mid-ordinates and set off lengths to represent them as radii vectors from A in (b) Fig. 100, the angles at which the rays are drawn representing the values of x, i. e., the lengths of the divisions of the base. Join the ends of these rays and measure the area of the polar diagram thus obtained ; divide this area by the area of the original figure and the result is the height y required. For the area of the polar diagram = %fr 2 dd = \fy z dx, since rays represent values of y and the angles represent values of x. Also the area of the original figure =fy dx, so that area of polar diagram _ \fy z dx _ _ area of original figure fydx ~ For the particular case illustrated (the scales referring to the original drawing) : For (a) Fig. 100 i" = 5 units vertically i* = 4 units horizontally so that i sq. in. represents 20 units of area. The area was found by the planimeter to be 16-82 sq. ins., so that the actual area is 336-4 sq. units, i. e., fy dx = 336-4. For (b) Fig. 100 i" = 5 units radially and each angular interval = 20, so that the total range = 180 or 3-14 radians. Hence 3-14 radians represent 20 units, the length of the base in (a) Fig. 100, or i radian = 6-36 units. 3-14 Now the area is of the nature r 2 X0, i. e., (length) 2 x angle, hence i sq. in. of area = 5 2 X 6-36 or 159 units. Area of the polar figure (found by the use of the planimeter) = 18-34 sc l- ms - = J 8'34 X 159 units = 2920. Hence y = ^|. = 8-68, 336-4 i. e., the centroid horizontal is found. Theory of the Amsler Planimeter. The principle upon which the planimeter is based may be explained quite simply, in the following way. In Fig. 101 let PP" be a portion of the outline of the figure whose area is to be measured, and let the fixed centre of the instrument be at O. Then in the movement of the tracing point P from P to P" along the curve, the tracing arm changes from the position AP to A'P". This movement may be regarded as made up of two distinct parts : firstly, a sliding or translational move- ment from AP to A'P', and next, a rotation round A' as centre, POLAR CO-ORDINATES 267 from A'P' to A'P". In the former of these movements the record- ing wheel moves from W to W, but part of this movement only, viz., that perpendicular to the axis of the wheel, is actually recorded, so that the wheel records the distance p. The area swept out by the tracing arm AP during the small change from P to P" = APP'P"A' = APP'A'+P'P'A' Hence for the whole area, area swept out = 2APx/>+2(AP) 2 S<9 Now the net angular movement is zero, so that 280 = o . Hence area swept out = AP2/>, or if / = length of the tracing arm, area = / X travel of wheel and hence the reading of the wheel _ area of figure Thus the length of the tracing arm determines the scale to which the area is measured. Hence by suitable adjustment of this length of arm the area of a figure may be read in sq. ins. or sq. cms. as may be neces- sary. If the average height of the figure is required, the length of the tracing arm must be made exactly equal to the length of the figure. This is done by using the points LL (Part I, Fig. 301), and not troubling about the adjustment at A. The difference between the first and last readings gives, when multi- plied or divided by a constant, the actual mean height of the figure. If the ordinary Amsler is used, then the mean height in inches is obtained by dividing the difference between the readings by 400 ; thus if the first reading was 7243 and the last 7967, the mean height would be the difference, viz., 724, divided by 400, i.e., 1-81 ins. The area of the figure = average height X length, but the area of the figure = length of tracing arm X wheel reading, hence if the length of the tracing arm = the length of the diagram, the wheel reading must be the average height of the diagram. FIG. 101. Theory of Amsler Planimeter. 268 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS [It should be noticed that the area recorded by the instrument is really the difference between the areas swept out by, the ends A and P of the arm AP, but as A moves along an arc of circle, coming back finally to its original position, no area is swept out.] Exercises 21.

CHAPTER IX SIMPLE DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS Differential Equations. An equation containing one or more derived functions is called a " differential equation." Thus a very simple form of differential equation is dy = dx ? dv 5 = o x , dy and +2x -= and 4 -;- + 7/ 5 dx 2 dx are more complex forms. Differential equations are classified according to " order " or " degree " ; the order being fixed by that of the highest differential /V coefficient occurring in it. Thus ~ is a differential coefficient of d s y the first order. - is of the third order, and so on. dx 3 dv Hence 4-2 -\-y-jr = 5 '34 is an equation of the first order w% d*y and 8-^j+.y = 7 -I 6 is an equation of the fourth order. wsv The "degree" of an equation is fixed by that of the highest derivative occurring when the equation is free from radicals and fractions. d 2 y Thus T-TJ = c is of the second order and of the first degree whilst 4(3-^) +(-r"o) = 7 is f the second order and of the 2 2 second degree. Much has been written concerning the solution of the many types of differential equations, but it is only possible here to treat 270 SIMPLE DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS 271 the forms that are likely to arise in the derivation of the proofs of engineering formulae ; the plan being to discuss the solution accord- ing to the types of equation. Type : ~ given as a function of x. With the solution of such simple forms we have already become familiar, for the equations connecting the bending moment at various sections of a beam with the distances of those sections from some fixed point are of this character. Thus taking the case of a simply supported beam carrying a load W at the centre dfy = \V dx* ~ El dy Wx whence -- = ^F +C dx El which is of the type under consideration. Evidently this equation can be solved by integration through- out, attention being paid to the constants which are necessarily introduced.

Now we have seen (Part I, p. 353) that this is the case only when y = e x . If a has some value other than i, y must still be some power of e, for the rate of change of y is proportional to y ; actually, if -V = 6*, -- = ae ax = ay, so that y = e * would be one solution of dx the equation -. = ay, but to make more general we should write d% the solution in the form y = e ax -\-C or y = Ae ax , whichever form is the more convenient. Whenever, therefore, one meets with a differential equation expressing the Compound Interest law (*'. e., when the rate of change is proportional to the variable quantity) one can write down the solution according to the method here indicated.

An exact differential equation is one that is formed by equating an exact differential to zero ; thus Pdx-}-Qdy = o is the type, Pdx-{-Qdy being an exact differential. The term exact differential must first be explained. Pdx -\-Qdy is said to be an exact differential if = ^S, the 3y dx derivatives being partial, or, to use the more familiar notation, dy / \dx. To solve such an equation proceed as follows : If the equation is exact, integrate Pdx as though y were constant, integrate the terms in Qdy that do not contain x, and put the sum of the results equal to a constant. [For, let Pdx+Qdy = du. Now, du is the total differential, ( -=- }dx and ( -j- }dy \dxJ \dyJ ' being the partial differentials (see p. 82) ; (du\ (du\ i. e., du = ( -=- MX+ I -j- )dy. \dx/ \dy/ " TU -t ^ ( du \j i ( du \j Then if du = o, ( ]dx4-\ -3- jay = o, \dx' \ay/ ' and this is exactly the same as the original equation ., (du\ idu\ if ( -j- } = P and ( -=- } = Q, \dx/ \dy/ ^y/ \iy/\dx/ \dy.dx \ (d\(dii\ (dQ I -= )\ -.

Solve the equation (x 2 4%y 2y 2 ) dx+(y 2 4xy2x 2 ) dy = o. Here P = x z -^xy-2y 2 (^ P ) = -^x-^y \dy 1 Q = y*-4xy-2x* and thus the equation is exact. I P dx (as though y were a constant) /X^ 4X 2 V (x 2 4xy2y z ) dx = 2 -- i 2y*#. I Qdy (as though x were a constant) = {(y*4xy2x z ) dy = ^* ^ 2Ar 2 y ; but of this only ^ 3 must be taken, since the other terms have been obtained by the integration of terms containing x. Hence \x* 2x 2 y zxy z +$y s = C or x 3 6x*y6xy*+y* = K. Example 13. Solve the equation v du u dv = o. If this equation is multiplied through by - 2 we have a form on the left-hand side with which we are familiar, viz., v duu dv _ v 2 ~~' for the left-hand side is d ( - V It Then by integrating, - = C or u = Cv.

This means that Va 2 46 is the square root of a negative quantity, i. e., it is an imaginary.

(3) If a z <4b: the solution is 284 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS The last of these forms occurs so frequently that very careful consideration should be given to it, and to the equation of which it gives the solution. Example 15. Solve the equation d z y , dy ^- 2V = O. dx f This can be written (after dividing through by 5) d z y , dy -3-4+2-4-^ 4V = o, dx 2 dx so that a 2-4 and b -4 (in comparison with the standard form). -2-4+v / 5 7 76+l : 6, | . -2'4-v / 6-76+l-6. y = A lS It is really easier to work a question of this kind from first principles rather than to try to remember the rule in the form given ; thus the values of X will be the roots of the equation 5\ 2 + I2X 2=0. Then, calling these roots Xj and X 2 respectively If the values of A t and A 2 were required, two values of y with the corresponding values of x would be necessary. Example 16. A body is moving away from a fixed point in such a way that its acceleration is directed towards that point, and is given in magnitude by 64 times the distance of the body from that point. Find the equation of the motion and state of what kind the motion is. The motion is Simple Harmonic. (See p. 60.) If s = displacement at time t from the start = acceleration and = 645 (the reason for the minus sign being obvious). d z s d z y dy Thus ^+645=0, which is of the type -^-}-a~-\-b=o, where a=o and 6=64. If s = e* X 2 + 64 = o so that X = V 64= 8j. SIMPLE DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS 285 Hence the solution (according to Case (3)) is _?? y Ae 2 sinf -- \-p\ where a = o and c V^ba* 16 so that s = A sin (8t+p) . The general equation of S.H.M. is s = A sin (o>t-}-p) &> being the angular velocity, so that the angular velocity in this case is 8 and the amplitude is A. Example 17. Solve the equation Let y = e** then X 2 +8X+i6 = o i.e., (X+ 4 )2 = o i. e., the roots are equal. Hence y = (A+~Bx)e>&, (Cf. Case (2), p. 282) where X = 4. hence y = (A-\-~Bx)e~* x . Example 18. Solve the equation d z v dy This differs from the preceding examples in the substitution of a constant in place of o. The equation can be written d z y , dy . 5^+7i+io(y--5)=. Let (y~5) = e* x then ( Q. = \ e te and ^ dx dx z and X 2 -|-7X-j-io = o whence X = 5 or 2 then y- -5 = A^ - fa + A z e or = Ag- //y /-y In other words, the solution is that of -=^j + 7 - + ioy = o plus tt# i**V 5 . the constant dy j ^ , t. e., - ^^ -- T-. This is correct because, if v = -5, -^ and -v4 10 coefficient of y dx dx 2 each equals o, and thus one solution is y -5. The complete solution is the sum of the two solutions. 286 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS The Operator D. The differential coefficient of y with respect to x may be expressed in a variety of forms : thus either -, -j , f'(x) or Dy might be used to denote the process of differentiation. The last of these forms, which must only be used when there is no ambiguity about the independent variable, proves to be of great advantage when concerned with the solution of certain types of differential equations. It is found that the symbol D has many important algebraic properties, which lend them- selves to the employment of D as an " operator." The first derivative of y with regard to x = Dy, and the second d*y derivative of y with regard to x -j^, which is written as D 2 y ; D 2 indicating that the operation represented by D must be performed twice. This is in accordance with the ordinary rules of indices, so the fact suggests itself that the operator D may be dealt with according to algebraic rules. Thus D 3 must equal D.D.D (this implying not multiplication, but the performance of the operation three times) ; for .. dx* dx\dx 2 / dx dx dx Our rule then holds, at any rate, so long as the index is positive, or the operation is direct ; and for complete establishment we must test for the case when the index is negative. If Dy = d j? D = f:let^ = m, i. *., Dy = m. Then by integration y = I mdx, but if Dy = m and the rules of algebra can be applied to D m i y must = ^r or =- . m. Hence -^m Imdx ) W ~ \i or =- indicates the operation of integration. Again, if the rules of indices are to hold, D.D" 1 ^ must = Dy or y, hence D- 1 must represent the process of integration; since if we SIMPLE DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS 287 differentiate a function we must integrate the result to arrive at the original function once again. Hence D' 1 = ^. Having satisfied ourselves that the ordinary rules of indices may be applied to D, we may now prove that the rules of factorisation apply also. Taking the expression D 2 120+32, we can easily show that it can be written in the factor form (D 4)(D 8) : for let y = jx 2 5x, then Dy = 14* 5 and D 2 jy = 14. Also (D 2 120+32)? = D^y i2Vy+32y = 14 i68#-f 6o+224# 2 160* and 5 56*2+40*) 4(14* 5 = 14 II2#+40 56#+20+224# 2 I6OX so that (D2-I2D+32) = (D-4)(D-8). These properties make D of great usefulness in the solution of certain types of differential equations : e. g., Suppose 5^+7^ + ioy = M ..... . (i) then this equation may be re-written as M5D 2 +7D+io)=M M y = 5 D 2 + 7 D+io and the solution of equation (i) may be found by this artifice. Many differential equations occurring in electrical theory may be solved in a very simple manner by the treatment of D as a " quasi- algebraic" quantity: before proceeding to these, however, we must enunciate the following theorems. 288 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS Useful Theorems, involving the Operator D : (1) (p+qD) operating on the function a sin (bt+c) gives the result aVp 2 +b 2 q 2 sin f^+c+tan" 1 ^ ) \ p ' (2) rp. a sin (bt+c) = _ - sin (bt+c tan- 1 -). p+qV ^*+b 2 * P' Proof of (i).

Beam Uniformly n v& T j j w;t Loaded, is used ; whence double integration from the equation so formed gives an expression for the deflected form. A few harder cases are here treated, the beam not being simply supported. Example 10. A beam is fixed at one end and supported at the other ; the loading is uniform, w being the intensity. Find the equation of the deflected form. We must first find the force P (part of the couple keeping the end fixed) and then combine this force with the reaction at B calculated on the assumption that the beam is simply supported.

Find the fixing couples and the true B.M. diagram. This is a special case of Example 12 since the section, and therefore I, is constant. The B.M. diagram for the beam if simply supported would be as ABCD (Fig. 112). The bending moment diagram, due to the fixing couples only, would have the form of a trapezoid, as APQD. Unless the integration, explained in the previous example, is done extremely carefully, there will be serious errors in the results ; and since there are only the two loads to consider, it is rather easier to FIG. 112.

To find an expression for the maximum intensity of shearing stress over a beam section. The shearing stress at any point in a vertical section of a beam is always accompanied by shearing stress of equal intensity in a hori- zontal plane through that point. FIG. 113. Shearing Stress in Beams. FIG. 114. We require to know the tangential or shearing stress / at E on the plane CEC' (Fig. 113) ; this must be equal to the tangential stress in the direction EF on the plane EF at right angles to the paper.

The muzzle is divided into a number of elementary discs, the volumes of these found (and hence the weights) so that the curve of loads can be plotted. Integration of this curve gives the curve of shear, and integration of the curve of shear gives the B.M. diagram. APPLICATIONS OF THE CALCULUS 317 The values of I must next be calculated for each disc, and a new curve plotted with ordinates equal to : then double integration of this gives the deflected form.

Let I be the moment of inertia of the pendulum about an axis through the point of suspension O (Fig. 119), and let h = the distance of the C. of G. from the point of suspension. Then the couple acting, to produce the angular acceleration, = moment of inertia x angular acceleration.

We may attack this problem by either of two methods : Method i. In (a) Fig. 120 let the outside radius = r t and the inside radius = r ; also let the internal pressure be p, and the crushing stress at right angles to the radii, or the hoop stress, = q. 326 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS It is rather easier to consider the stress on the outside to be greater than that on the inside : thus for an annulus of radius r and thickness $r, we take the internal stress as p and the external stress as p-\-8p. Considering the element RS of the annule (subtending an angle of 80 at the centre), and dealing with the radial forces, Total radial force = (p-\-8p) x outer arc px inner arc = (p+8p) X (r+8r)86-pr86 = (pr+p8r+r8p+8p.8r-pr)86 . = (p8r+r8p+8p.8r) 86 (for a unit length of the cylinder) .

Then if <r = Poisson's ratio and E = Young's modulus for the material, p i the extension due to p will be ^ X - and the extension due to q will be ^ X - Si, (T then, since the total extension is to be constant, i. e., ~r^ constant, (T-tL p-\-q = 2A, say, for a and E are constants.

This flow will result in a lowering of the level in the tank by an amount &h, so that the volume taken from the tank in time 8t = A 8h.

CHAPTER XI HARMONIC ANALYSIS Fourier's Theorem relates to periodic functions, ot which many examples are found in both electrical and mechanical engi- neering theory and practice : it states that any periodic function can be expressed as the sum of a number of sine functions, of different amplitudes, phases and periods. Thus, however irregular the curve representing the function may be, so long as its ordinales repeat themselves after the same interval of time or space, it is possible to resolve it into a number of sine curves, the ordinates of which when added together give the ordinates of the primitive curve. This resolution of a curve into its component sine curves is known as Harmonic Analysis ; and in view of its importance, the simpler and most direct methods employed for the analysis are here treated in great detail. Expressed in mathematical symbols, Fourier's theorem reads or y = +Bj cos tf+B 2 cos 2qt+~B 3 cos 3qt-\- . . . the latter form being equivalent to the first, since Aj sin gtf+Bj cos qt B sin (qt-\-Cj) provided that B and c are suitably chosen.

To determine the absolute values, an infinite number of ordinates should be taken, but this would of course be quite out of the question as far as an ordinary calculation is concerned. The work is made clearer by suitable tabulation, as will be seen from the following example. Example i. Resolve the curve ABCD (Fig. 129) into its component curves : it being understood that no higher harmonic than the first occurs. e O -36 72 K>8 144 FIG. 129. Harmonic Analysis.

A glance at the figure will show that the curve is symmetrical about the axis of 6 ; thus we observe that the average ordinate = o, or A ft = o. 346 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS Divide the base into 10 equal parts, erect the mid-ordinates and tabulate the values as follows : (a) (/) (c) (d) (e) (/) (g) Ordinate No. 9 1 sin cos e sin 26 cos 26 I 1-56 18 309 951 588 809 2 375 54 809 588 95 1 -309 3 4 90 I- o o I 4 2-91 126 809 588 951 -309 5 1-13 162 309 -951 588 809 6 -1-13 198 309 -95 1 588 809 7 2-91 234 -809 588 95 1 309 8 -4 270 I o T 9 -3'75 306 809 588 951 -309 10 -1-56 342 309 951 588 809 Then A = mean value of y = o.

Analysis by Method (6): The Graphical Interpretation of (a) (due to Professor Harrison). To employ this method we must take at least twice as many ordinates as the largest multiple HARMONIC ANALYSIS 347 of ', thus if we suppose that the second harmonic is the highest occurring we might take 6 ordinates as the minimum, although it would be better if 8 or 10 were taken. The method can best be illustrated by applying it to an example. Example 2. Resolve the curve ABC [(a) Fig. 130] into its com- I8O 24O 3OO 360* FIG. 130. ponent curves (the second being the highest harmonic) ; i. e., find the values of the constants in the equation y = AO+AJ cos 6+ A 2 cos 20+ A 3 cos 30+Bj sin 0+B 2 sin 20+ B 3 sin 3$. To arrange that all the ordinates shall be positive, take a base line DE entirely below the curve. Divide the base into 8 equal divisions and number the ordinates y , y lt y 2 , etc. The angular intervals are thus ^5, since a full period corresponds to 360. 348 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS Draw a new figure [(&) Fig. 130], the lines OM and ON making 45 with the principal axes ; number these lines : o, i, ..... 8, as shown in the figure. Along line o set off a distance equal to y , along line i set off a distance equal to y t and so on. Drop perpendiculars from the points o, I, etc., on to the principal axes, calling the projec- tions on these axes h (this particular projection being zero), A x ..... h a , and v , v l ...... v a respectively. Then to find Aj and Bj : As already proved A! = f (sy cos 0) = "J{y -y 4 + (y!-y 3 -y & +y 7 ) cos 45 + (y t -y,) cos 90} = MVO-^VI+V^VS-VS+VJ and similarly B t = Jj^+Ag h 5 h 7 +h 2 h 6 } i. e., the lengths v ...... v 7 , and h t ....... / 7 can be read off from the figure and then the values of A 1 and B t are calculated as above. Jn this example "0=13-7 *o= o v v =14 h 1= 14 v 2 = o h 2 = 20-4 v 3 ii h a = ii v t = 7'3 h t = o v 6 = '5 hs= '5 v 6 = o A 6 = 1-5 v,= 5-4 h 7 = 5-4 * andB 1 = X38 = 9-5 By the aid of a strip of paper a great amount of this arithmetical work might be obviated, the procedure being as follows : Mark off along the edge of a strip of paper lengths to represent the various ordinates of the original curve, viz., y , y v etc., and number the points so obtained o, i, 2 .... 8 as shown at (c) Fig. 130. Thus Po == y , P 4 = y t and so on. We have seen that in order to find the value of A a it is necessary to evaluate y cos 6 for the various angles ; i. e., we must find the values of y v cos 45, y z cos 90, y a cos 135 and so on. Now y s cos 135 = y 3 x cos 45 = y a cos 45, so that the one line, viz., that at 45, serves also for 135 provided that the ordinate is stepped off in a negative direction. Thus, for example, yj. cos 6+y 3 cos ^6=y 1 cos 45 y s cos 45 = cos 45(;y 1 y s ) and the value of this expression depends upon the difference between the lengths on the strip Pi and P3, or the distance 3 to i. Evidently, then, the work is shortened by grouping the ordinates in pairs to give differences ; thus y\y% = Pi ?3 i to 3 on the strip y 7 y & Py P5 = 5 to 7 on the strip and so on for other pairs of ordinates. HARMONIC ANALYSIS 349 Having found these differences, we multiply by 00345, by setting these lengths along the line Of in (d) Fig. 130 and then projecting to the horizontal axis OX ; the resultant of these projections being the value of 4Aj. Thus in (d) Fig. 130 : Make Oo = i to 3 (on the strip) and ab 5 to 7. Drop be perpendicular to OX. Then Oc = (y^ y 3 y^+y^ cos 45. Step off cd = o to 4 (i. e., y^y^, then measure Od ; this is the value of 4A X , since Od = Oc+cd = (yiy 9 y t +y 7 ) cos 45+(y -y t ). A!= 3-43 For the value of Bj the strip must be used according to the following plan. A line is drawn at 45 [(d) Fig. 130] and distances marked off along it as follows Oe = i to 7 on the strip, ef= 3 to 5 on the strip. {for 46! = (y n +y t ) sin o+(y 1 +y 3 -y 6 -yj sin 45+(> ; 2-^6) sin 9<> } A perpendicular to OY gives the point g. To Og must be added a distance = 2 to 6 on the strip, but to avoid extending the diagram this distance is set off from O giving the length Oh. Thus Og = 19-5, Oh = 18-2, the sum = 37-7. Then 4 B X = 37-7 and B!=: 9-43. To find the values of A 2 and B 2 : The terms containing 26, i. e., 90, will now occur and so there will be no lines at 45. Ag |{yo cos +yi cos go+y 2 cos 180+ . . . y 1 cos 630} Similarly B 2 = ^{y!- Hence set off Ok = o to 2, i. e., (y 9 y%) and kl = 4 to 6, i. e., (y t y 6 ) along OX and the resultant is O/ = -8. -Hence 4A 2 = -8 and A 2 = -2. Set oft Om =* i to 3, i. e., (y t y a ) and mn = 5 to 7, i. e., (y^y-j) along OX and the resultant is On 2-6 Hence 4B 2 = 2-6 and B 2 = -65. To find the values of A 3 and B 3 : A =-( y COS +yi COS I 35+> / 2 cos 270-f-y 3 cos 4O5+>' 4 cos 540 3 1 +^ 6 cos675+>/ 6 cos8io +^ 7 cos945 -{y9yt+\yyi+yty,} cos 45 }. 4 350 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS Set off Op = o to 4 on the strip, along OX, and Ob = (y>i y a y 5 +y 7 ) (which has already been done when finding Aj). Project b to c on OX ; then Oc = (y a y-a-^y^y-i) cos 45. Hence cp = 4A3 but cp = i -3 and thus A 3 = 33.

Project / to g on OY, then gh = 463 but gh = 1-2 Hence B 3 = .3 Also == 8 (using the trapezoidal rule given on p. 307, Part I), , * A 6 '75 + I 9-8+20-4+i6+7-3+-9+i-9+7-6+6-75 **., A _ -g 87-4 ^=10-93- y= 10-93+3-43 cos $+9-43 sin 6 -2 cos 26 ~- -65 sin 20 33 cos 3$+ -3 sin 3$. There should be no difficulty in the understanding of this method if method (a) is first carefully studied. All that this method (b) adds is the multiplica- A tion of lengths by the cosines or sines of angles by regarding the products as projections on fixed axes (i. e., if OA = R (Fig. 131) and the angle AOB = 30, then OB = OA cos 30 = R cos 30, and OC = OA sin 30 = R sin 30) . FIG. 131. The beauty of the method consists in the use of the strip of paper for the grouping together of pairs of ordinates which have to be multiplied by the same quantity. HARMONIC ANALYSIS 351 In the example just discussed, the angular intervals were taken as 45, this choice being made as a matter of great convenience, since cos 45 = sin 45 and projections may thus be made on either a horizontal or a vertical axis. For greater accuracy, more ordinates should be taken, and then care must be observed as to the axis on which the projections are made. Thus if the angular intervals were taken as 18, say, the lines corresponding to OM, ON and Of in (b] and (d) Fig. 130 would be drawn making angles of 18 with the horizontal axis ; then for the values of A lt A 2 , etc., the projections along OX would be measured, whilst the values of B 1 , B 2 , etc., would be determined from the projections on OY. Method (c): Analysis by Superposition. This method is much used in alternating current work, for the problems of which it is specially suited. It is not difficult to employ, nor to under- stand, although the proof of the method is long and is in consequence not treated here. In order to present the method in as clear a fashion as possible, the rules of procedure are here set out in place of a detailed explanation. The method is as follows ; the case of a curve containing the second as the highest harmonic being treated, although the process can readily be extended if necessary : (1) Divide the curve into two 'equal parts and superpose the second part upon the first, using dividers and paying attention to the signs. If the resultant curve approximates to a sine curve there is no need to further subdivide. (This gives terms containing 26, 4$, 60, etc., but if this curve is a sine curve, probably only terms containing 2$ occur.) Put in a base line for this new curve (by estimation) ;^ then the height of this from the original base line = 2A . (2) Divide the original curve into three equal parts and super- pose (first, the second on the first, and then to this result add the third). (This gives the terms containing 3$, 60, 'gO, etc.) The height of the base line of the resulting curve from the original base line = 3A . (The two values of A may be compared, and of course they should be alike ; but if not, take the average of these and draw a new base line distant A from the original ; this line we shall speak of as the true base line.) (3) Subtract corresponding ordinates of the 20 curve (divided by^2) and the 36 curve (divided by 3), paying attention to the 352 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS signs, from the ordinates of the original curve ; the resultant curve is approximately a sine curve symmetrical about the true base line. To calculate the values of the constants, if +A 2 sin (20+c 2 ) A is already found. Select two convenient values of 6 and work from the ordinates of the curve to find Aj and c x ; proceed similarly, using the 26 curve to find A 2 and c 2 . Note that in alternating current work only terms of the order 6, 36, $0, etc., occur, so that the curve would need to be divided into 3, 5, etc., equal divisions and the parts superposed. There is thus no need to divide into 2, 4, etc., equal parts; also it is evident that the value of A must be zero. Example 3. The curve ABCD, Fig. 132, gives by its ordinates the displacement of a valve actuated by a Gooch Link Motion. It is required to find the constants in the equation +A 2 sin etc. The original curve is divided into two equal parts, the second being placed over the first, with the result that Curve 2 is obtained. The estimated base line for this is B 2 ; the height of B 2 above the original base line being -29, i. e., HARMONIC ANALYSIS 353 2Q the height of the true base line is -- or -145 unit. This base line can now be put in, and is indicated as the true base line. By division into 3 and 4 equal parts and superposition the curves 3 and 4 respectively are obtained. B 3 , the base line for 3, is at a height of -43 ; this figure divided by 3 gives -143, which agrees well with our former result. Curve 2 really represents the first harmonic with double amplitude ; therefore we subtract ordinates of Curve 2 (to half scale, i. e., we use proportional compasses) from the corresponding ordinates of the original curve. Similarly we subtract J of the ordinates of Curve 3 from the original curve, and since those for Curve 4 are too small to be taken into account, the net result is Curve i, which represents the funda- mental, and is a sine curve symmetrical about the true base line. To find the constants A t and c : in the equation y l = A l sin(6+c 1 ). When 6 = 0, ;Vi = 2-i75 (measured from the true base line to Curve i). At 6 90, y = o. c, = 90 or 2 At 180 y t = 2-135, t. e., Aj = the mean of 2-175 an d 2>I 35 * e -> 2 ' 1 5> y = 2-15 sin (0+90 3 ) = 2-15 costf. To find A 2 and c 2 . *2Q The amplitude of Curve 2 is , . e., -145. and since the curve has its maximum ordinate when 6 = we have again c g = 90, or the curve is a cosine curve. Hence y^ = -145 cos 20. Beyond this first harmonic we need not proceed as the amplitudes of Curves 3 and 4 are exceedingly small. Hence y = y*+y* = 2-Ij COS ^+-145 COS 20. This method of superposition is to be recommended in cases of A.C. work, as one can so readily tell by its aid which harmonics are present. If the actual constants in the equation are required it may be easier to proceed according to method (a) or method (b) . A A 354 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS Exercises 24. On Harmonic Analysis. 1.

CHAPTER XII THE SOLUTION OF SPHERICAL TRIANGLES THE curvature of the earth's surface is not an appreciable factor in the calculations following a small survey, and is therefore not regarded, but when the lengths of the boundaries of the survey are great, as in the case of a " major triangulation," the effect of the curvature must be allowed for, if precision is desired. It is there- fore necessary to use Spherical Trigonometry in place of the more familiar Plane Trigonometry, and accordingly a very brief chapter is inserted here, dealing mainly with the solution of spherical triangles. Definitions of Terms used. The earth may be considered as a sphere of radius 20,890,172 feet, this being the mean radius. A great circle on a sphere is a circle traced by the intersection of the sphere by a plane passing through its centre ; if the plane does not pass through the centre of the sphere, its intersection with the sphere is called a small circle. Thus all meridians are great circles, whilst parallels of latitude, except for the equator parallel, are all small circles. A straight line on the earth's surface is in reality a portion of a great circle ; hence a parallel of latitude is not a straight line, or, in other words, a movement due East or West is not a movement along a straight line. A triangle set out on the earth's surface with straight sides is what is termed a "spherical triangle," its sides being arcs of great circles. The lengths of these sides might be measured according to the usual rules, viz., in miles, furlongs, etc., but it is more usual to measure them by the sizes of the angles subtended by them at the centre of the sphere. In this connection it is convenient to remember that an arc of one nautical mile (6076 feet) subtends an angle of i' at the centre of the earth ; hence a length of 80 nautical miles would be spoken of as a side of 80', i. e., i 20'. In Fig. 133 is shown the difference between great and small circles ; and AB, BC and CA being portions of great circles form a 355 356 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS spherical triangle (shown cross hatched). The length BA would be expressed by the magnitude of the angle BOA. A spherical triangle ABC is shown in Fig. 134, O being the centre of the sphere. The arc AB is proportional to the angle AOB, and therefore, instead of speaking of AB as a length, it is quite legitimate to represent it by L AOB. c would thus stand for /.AOB, b for ^.COA, and a for <iCOB. As regards the angles of the triangle, the angle between CA and AB is that between the planes AOC and AOB and is, therefore, the angle between the tangents AD and AE. Spherical triangles should be regarded as the most general form of plane triangles ; for if the radius of the sphere becomes infinite the spherical triangle becomes a plane triangle. FIG. 133. Spherical Triangles. Many rules with which we are familiar in connection with plane triangles hold also for spherical triangles, as, for example, "Any two sides of a triangle are greater than the third," or, again, " If two triangles have two sides and the included angle of the one respectively equal to two sides and the included angle of the other, the triangles are equal in ah 1 respects " ; " The greater side of every triangle is subtended by the greater angle." There is one important difference between the rule for a plane triangle and a corresponding rule for a spherical triangle: viz., whilst the three angles of a plane triangle add up to 180 the sum of those in a spherical triangle always exceeds 180, the sum in fact lying between 180 and 540 ; and the difference between the sum of the three angles and 180 is known as the " spherical excess." THE SOLUTION OF SPHERICAL TRIANGLES 357 The magnitude of this can be found from the rule 360 X area of triangle spherical excess = ^~ 2irT z (27rr 2 being the area of the surface of the hemisphere). This spherical excess is a small quantity for the cases likely to be considered in connection with surveys. E. g., consider the case of an equilateral triangle of side 68 miles. r = 20,900,000 ft. approx. = 3960 miles. The area of the triangle is about 2000 sq. miles. Then the spherical excess 360x60x2000 = minutes = -437 minute. 27rX 3960x3960 -"^ A good approximation for the spherical excess of a triangle on the earth's surface is : area of spherical triangle in sq. miles spherical excess (seconds) = 78 Solution of Spherical Triangles. The most widely used rule in connection with the solution of plane triangles is the " sine " rule which states that the sides are proportional to the sines of the angles opposite. In the case of spherical triangles this becomes modified and reads " The sines of the angles are proportional to the sines of the sides opposite. Therefore, adopting the notation of Fig. 134, sin a sin b sin c sin A ~ sin B sin C it being remembered that sin a is really sin L BOC, etc. Other rules are . A /sin (s b) sin (s c) sin = A/ - v .

Napier's Rules of Circular Parts. The equations (10), (n) and (13) and their modifications may be easily remembered by Napier's two rules of circular parts, which may almost be regarded as a mnemonic. For the application of these two rules the five parts of the spherical triangle, other than the right angle at C, are 'regarded as a, b, (go A), (90 c), and (90 B) respectively, the complements of A, c and B being taken instead of the values A, c and B in order that the two rules may embrace all the cases. 360 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS These five parts are written in the five sectors of a circle in the order in which they occur in a triangle : thus in Fig. 135, com- mencing from the side a and making the circuit of the triangle in the direction indicated, the parts in turn are a b A (for which we write 90 A), c (for which is written 90 c) and B (for which is written 90 B). These parts are set out as shown in Fig. 136. Then Napier's rules state : Sine of the middle part = product of tangents of adjacent parts. Sine of the middle part = product of cosines of opposite parts. The terms middle, adjacent and opposite have reference to the mutual position of the parts in Fig. 136. Thus if b is selected as the middle part, the adjacent parts are those in immediate contact FIG. 135. FIG. 136. with b, viz., a and (90 A), whilst (90 c) and (906) are the opposite parts. Hence sin b = tan a x tan (90 A) = tan a cot A sin b = cos (906) X cos (90 c) = sin B sin c . sin b ., ,. , . or smB = - . (Cf. equation (13), p. 359.) olll C/ Again if (906) is selected as the middle part, the adjacent parts are (goc) and, and the opposite parts are (90 A) and b. Hence sin (906) = tan (90 c) tana or cos B = tan (900) tan a (cf . equation (n), p. 359), and sin (90 B) = cos (90 A) cos b or cos B = sin A cos b. These rules, being composed of products and quotients only, lend themselves well to logarithmic computation. The Ambiguous Case in the Solution of Spherical Triangles. In the solution of a plane triangle, if two sides and the angle opposite the shorter of these is given, there is the possibility THE SOLUTION OF SPHERICAL TRIANGLES 361 of two solutions of the problem ; the best test for which, as pointed out in Chap. VI, Part I, being the drawing to scale. A similar difficulty occurs in the solution of spherical triangles, when two sides and the angle opposite one of them is given. E. g., let a b and B be the given parts. Then from equation (i), p. 357. sin A sin B sin a sin b sin a sin B or sin A = : -, . sino Now sin A = sin(i8o A) and thus the right-hand side of this last equation may be the value of either a particular angle or its supplement. Without going into the proof it may be stated that there will be one solution only if the side opposite the given angle has a value between the other given side and its supplement. Thus in the case in which a b and B are given, there will be one solution only if b lies between a and (180 a}. If b is not between a and (180 a], then the test must be applied that the greater angle must be opposite the greater side : thus for the case of a b and B given, if a > b then A must be > B. The possible cases may be best illustrated by numerical examples, a b and B being regarded as the given parts throughout. (a) Given a = 144 40', b = 87 37', B = ng' to find A. Using equation (i) of p. 357 A _ sin a sin B _ sin 144 40' X sin 11 9' Sin A : f ; = -. sm b sin 87 37 and log sin A = log sin 144 4o'-flog sin 11 9' log sin 87 37' = i 7622 + 1 28641" 9996 = I 0490 so that it is possible that A = either 6 26' or 173 34'. Now a > b and therefore A must be > B, and this condition is only satisfied if A = 173 34', since 6 26' is not > n9'. It will be noted that the case chosen is that in which b, viz., 87 37', lies between a, i. e., 144 40', and (180 a), i. e., 35 20', and therefore only one solution is expected. . (b) b = 44 35', a = 55 10' and B = 38 46'. Here b does not lie between a and (180 a), so that two solutions are possible. 362 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS As before log sin A = log sin a + log sin B log sin b = log sin 55 io'+ log sin 38 46' log sin 44 35' = I 9142+1 79661 8463 = I 8645 log sin 47 3' so that possible values of A are 47 3' and 132 57' and we must test each of these values. Now a > b, and hence A must be > B ; but 47 3' and 132 57' are both > 38 46', so that we have two triangles satisfying the con- ditions, and for complete solution the two values of A, C and c must be determined.

Find the latitude of B, and if it be desired to travel due N. from B so as to meet the 50 parallel again at C, find the angle ABC at which we must set out and also the distance BC. In Fig. 137 let A be the point on latitude 50 N. and ABD be a great circle passing through A : thus AB is a straight line running due E. from A. Let NB be the meridian through B, and NA that through A. The sides NA, AB and BN are straight lines, because they are parts of great circles and therefore they together form a spheri- cal triangle. In this triangle we know -the side AB (its value being 60', for i nautical mile subtends an angle of i' at the centre) ; the angle at A (90) ; and the side NA (90 latitude, i.e., 40). Thus two sides and the included angle are given and we require to solve the triangle ; hence we use rule (10), p. 358, from which cos NB cos NA cos AB = cos 40 cos 60' or logcosNB = logcoS4O-f log cos i = 1-88425 +1-99993 = 1-88418 i.e., NB = 4oo'38' 1 ' or the latitude of B is Q0 40 o' 38* = 49 59' 22*.

For the surveyor, spherical trigonometry has an important application in questions relating to spherical astronomy. Thus in the determination of the latitude of a place by observation to a star, the calculations necessary involve the solution of a spherical triangle. This triangle is indicated in Fig. 139, the sides AB, BC 366 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS and CA representing the co-latitude of the place, i. e., (90 latitude), (90 declination) and (90 altitude) respectively ; whilst the angles A, B and C measure respectively the azimuth, the hour angle and the parallactic angle. The terms just mentioned are denned as follows: Fig. 138 represents a section of the celestial sphere at the meridian through the point of observation O. RDT is the celestial equator, CEX is the horizon, Z is the zenith of the point of observation, i. e., the point on the celestial sphere directly above O, and S marks the position of the heavenly body to which observa- FIG. 138. Determination of Latitude. tions are made. Also PSD, ZSC, RDT and CEX are portions of great circles. The altitude of a heavenly body is the arc of a great circle passing through the zenith of the point of observation and the heavenly body ; the arc being that intercepted between the body and the horizon. We may thus compare the altitude in astro- nomy with the angle of elevation in surveying. Referring to Fig. 138, ZSC is the great circle passing through Z and S, and SC is the altitude. ZS, which is the complement of SC, is called the zenith distance. THE SOLUTION OF SPHERICAL TRIANGLES 367 The azimuth of a heavenly body is the angle between the meridian plane through the point of observation and the vertical plane passing through the body. It can be compared with the 'bearing" of plane trigonometry. In Fig. 138, the angle PZS is the azimuth of S. The hour angle of a heavenly body is the angle at the pole, between the meridian plane through the point of observation and the great circle through the pole and the body. Thus, in the figure, P is the pole, and PSD is the great circle passing through P and S ; this being known as the " declination circle." Then ^_ZPS = the hour angle of S, and it is usually expressed in terms of time rather than in degrees, etc. The declination of a heavenly body is the arc of the declination FIG. 139. circle intercepted between the celestial equator and the heavenly body : thus DS is the declination of S. The method of calculation can be best explained by working through a numerical example ; and in order to ensure a clear conception of the problem, it is treated both graphically and analytically. Example 4. At a certain time at a place in latitude 52 13' N. the altitude of the Sun was found to be 48 19' and its declination was 15 44' N. Determine the azimuth. As explained before, a spherical triangle can be constructed with sides as follows: a 90 declination = 74 16', b = 90 altitude 41 41', and c = co-latitude 37 47'. Then the angle A is the a?imuth (Fig. 139). 368 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS Graphic construction. With any convenient radius OD describe an arc of a circle DABF. Draw OA, OB and OF, making the angle DOA = 6 = 4i4i', LAOB = c = 37 47', and L BOF = a == 74 16'. Draw DCE at right angles to OA, and FGC at right angles to OB, intersecting at the point C. Note that C lies outside the triangle AOB. With centre E and radius ED construct the arc of a circle DH : draw CH perpendicular to DE to meet this arc at H and join EH. Then the angle REH is the value of the required angle A, and is found to be in the neighbourhood of 141. [If C had fallen the other side of OA, the angle CEH would have been measured.] The actual spherical triangle ABC is formed by the circular arc BA and the elliptical arcs AC and BC. Proof of the construction The side b is such that it subtends an angle of 41 41' at the centre of the sphere. Thus DA measures the actual length of b, but does not represent it in its true position. In like manner BF gives the length of a, but again does not give its position on the sphere. Let the circular sector OAD be rotated about OA as axis, and the sector OBF about OB as axis, and let the rotation of both be continued until they have a common radius OC, i. e., OC is the intersection of the two revolving planes. Then evidently C is the third angular point of the spherical triangle ABC, since the given conditions concerning the lengths of the sides are satisfied by its position. We observe that in this case the rotation of OBF has to be continued beyond OA, from which fact we gather that the angle at A must be obtuse. The line OA is in the plane of the paper, and taking a section along DE and turning this down to the plane of the paper, we observe that the actual height of C above the paper is CH. Thus EH is a line on the plane OAC, also ER is a line in the plane AOB, both lines being perpendicular to the line of intersection, and the angle REH therefore measures the inclination of the plane AOC to the plane AOB, this angle being by definition the angle A of the spherical triangle ABC.

B B MATHEMATICAL PROBABILITY AND THEOREM OF LEAST SQUARES WHEN extremely accurate results are desired, these results being derived from a series of observations, the possibility of error in each or all of the observations must be considered. The correct result, or what is termed " the most probable result," is usually found by combining the mean of the observations with " the pro- bable error of the mean." The work that is to follow is concerned primarily with the establishment of a rule enabling us to find this probable error ; and as a preliminary investigation, a few simple rules of probability will be discussed. Supposing that an event is likely to happen 5 times and to fail 7 times, then the probability that it will happen on any specified occasion is r \, whilst its probability of failing is r 7 ^, because, considered over a great range, it only happens 5 times out of 12. It is important to note the significance of the phrase *' considered over a great range " ; we could not say with truth that the event was bound to happen 5 times out of the first 12, 10 times out of the first 24, and so on ; it might be doubtful whether it would happen 50 times out of 120. If, however, say, 12,000 opportunities offered, it would be fairly correct to say that the happenings would be 5,000 and the failures 7,000, for when a large number of occasions were considered, all " freaks " would be eliminated. To take another illustration : the probability that a man will score 90 per cent, of the full score or over on a target is /y indicates that he is rather more likely to score 90 per cent, than not (in the proportion 6 to 5) if he fires a great number of shots. In general terms, if an event may happen in a ways and fail in b ways, and all these are equally likely to occur, then the pro- bability of its happening is -j^-, and of its failing =- ; and if 37 MATHEMATICAL PROBABILITY 371 a = b, then it is as likely to happen as not, i. e., its probability of either happening or failing is \. Probability of happening _ a a+b _ a Probability of failing ~ a+b b ~ b' i. e., the odds are a to b for the event, or b to a against it, the first form being used if a > b and vice versa. E.g., if the odds are 10 to i against an event, the probability of its happening = = ; or it will probably happen once only out of eleven attempts. Exclusive Events. Let us now consider the case of two exclusive events, viz., the case in which the happenings do not concur. / Suppose the probability of the happening of the first event =- / and the probability of the happening of the second event = -T-. Then for purposes of comparison each of these fractions may be expressed with the same denominator : if this common denominator is c, write the fractions as and respectively. c c Now out of c equally likely ways the first event may happen in a ways and the second in 2 ways, and since the two events are exclusive, i. e., the happenings of the one do not coincide with the happenings of the other, the two events together may happen in !-}-, ways. Hence the probability that one or the other will happen is -. which may be written in the form -f- , i. e., as the sum c c c of the separate probabilities. E. g., suppose that one event happens once out of 8 times, and a second event happens three times out of 17, and that there is no possibility of the two events happening together ; then, the common denominator of 8 and 17 being 136, the first event happens 17 times out of 136 and the second event happens 24 times out of 136, and hence, either the one or the other happens 41 times out cf each 136. Probability of the Happening together of Two Inde- pendent Events. Suppose that one event is likely to happen once out of every 6 times, whilst another is likely to happen twice out of every 17 times ; then the probability that the two will happen together must be smaller than the probability of the 372 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS happening of either in fact, it must be the product of the separate probabilities ; i. e., the probability of the two events happening 122 I together = ;rX = or : or out of every 10.200 times the 6 17 102 51 first will probably happen 1,700 times, the second will probably happen 1,200 times, whilst the two would happen together 200 times only. Probability of Error. Bearing in mind these fundamental theorems, we can proceed to a study of the question of probability of error ; with particular reference to its application in precision surveying. It will be admitted that, for any well made series of observa- tions, the following assumptions may be regarded as reasonable : (1) That small errors are more likely to occur frequently than large errors, and hence extremely large errors never occur. (2) That positive and negative errors are equally likely, i. e., we are as likely to give a result that is -ooi too high as one that is ooi too low. Hence the probability of the occurrence of an error of a given magnitude, which is denoted by the number of errors of that magnitude total number of errors depends in some way upon the magnitude of that error. Our first idea, therefore, might be that the probability of the occurrence of an error of magnitude x could be expressed as f(x), i. e., as some linear function of x. It will be seen, however, that this is not in accordance with assumption (2) ; for assumption (2) demands that if a curve be plotted, the ordinates showing probabilities and the abscissae indicating errors, it must be symmetrical about the y axis. The function must therefore be of an even power of x, and taking the simplest power we say that the probability of occurrence of an error of magnitude x =y = f(x 2 ). Now, from assumption (i) we note that the coefficient of x z must be negative, because y must decrease as x increases. The probability of an error of magnitude x being included in the range x to x +S# must thus depend on x z , and also on the range Bx ; hence it would be reasonable to say that it =f(x z }8x, because the greater the range the more is the chance of happening increased. Therefore, the probability that an error of magnitude x falls MATHEMATICAL PROBABILITY 373 between any assigned limits, a and -\-a, must be the sum of the probability f(x z ) 8x extended over the range a to -\-a, i.e., P = ^ f(x*)dx this being the probability that the error does not exceed a. Hence the probability that the error may have. any value whatever (i. e., the probability is i) must be expressed by for the range is unlimited, so that /+ I f(x 2 )dx must = i. .' -oo It has been proved by Lord Kelvin (see his " Natural Philo- sophy ") that f(x 2 ) must be such that and since e?* x 0* = and e 1 ** X e*v* = this condition will be satisfied if _2 or Ae~* 2 the minus sign being inserted in accordance with assumption i on p. 372 ; and the coefficient k being written as ^ f r the reason that ft is explained later. A value can now be found for the constant A. r+oo r+oo It is known that I f(x 2 )dx = i, J -00 / + _Z2 hence A / e &dx i.

The curve representing this equation is called the probability curve and also Gauss's Error curve. Two such curves are plotted in Fig. 140, to show the effect of the variation of the parameter h. In the one case h = -2, and for the second curve h = -5 ; and it will be noticed on comparing the curves that for the smaller value of h the probability of the occurrence of small errors is greater, i. e., the set of observations for which h = -2 would be more nearly correct than that for which h = -5. It will be seen that the curve is in agreement with the axioms stated on p. 372 ; for the probability of error is greatest when the error is least, the probability of a large error is very small, and there is as much likelihood of an error of + -2, say, as of -2. The probability that the error does not exceed -i is given by the area ABCD in the one case, and ABEF in the other. Theorem of Least Squares. If a number of observations are made upon a quantity, and the errors in each of these noted, i. e., as nearly as can be estimated ; then from a knowledge of these errors it is possible to find the most probable or likely value of the quantity. Let n observations be taken and let the errors be x^ x z Xn '. also suppose that all the measurements are equally good, i. e., the "fineness" of reading is the same throughout; h in the formulae above being a measure of the fineness. The probability of the error x being within a certain range 8x MATHEMATICAL PROBABILITY 375 will be the probability of an error of magnitude x l multiplied by the range *, i.e., i . and for error x 2 P 2 = 8xX -=.e~ * a and so on. Now #! x 2 etc. are quite independent, so that the probability of all the errors falling within the range &x will be the product of the separate probabilities, i.e., P = P 1 XP 8 X . . .P B &x -^ Sx -** x =e 2 X . . hVi We have thus obtained an expression which gives us the prob- ability of all the errors falling within a certain range. We might say that this range was -i, for instance, or -05. Evidently if all the errors were kept within the range -05 to +-05 the calculated result would be a nearer approximation to the truth than if the range were double the amount stated. Our object then is to find when the probability of a small error (8x may be reduced as we please) is greatest, *'. e., to find when P is a maximum. _ .. -!(*-) K Now P = K e h& -; and the smaller the denominator is made, the larger will P become. But the only variable in the denominator is 2# 2 , and hence, in order that P may have its maximum value, 2# 2 must be the least possible. Hence the most probable value of the quantity to be determined is that which makes the sum of the squares of the errors the least. The fact can now be established that the arithmetic mean of the observed values is the most probable value of the quantity. 376 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS Thus, if n observations are made, let ! 2 # 3 . . .

Also in a set of well made observations, if a sufficient number are made, the arithmetic mean cannot differ from any of the observations to any very great extent, and accordingly the residual errors and .the actual errors are very nearly alike. We are now in a position to summarise the results of the investigation so far as we have pursued it ; thus (a) The arithmetic mean of the series of observations, which are supposed to have been made with equal care, is the most probable value of the quantity. (b) The sum of the squares of the residual errors must be the least. (c) The probable error of the A.M. is equal to the probable error of a single observation divided by the square root of the number of observations. Example i. Seven observations of a certain quantity, all made with equal care, were 12, n, 14, 12, 11-2, 11-7, and 12-1. Find the most probable value of the quantity. The most probable value = A.M. = = 12, 7 and it can readily be shown, by actual calculation, that this value makes the sum of the squares of the residual errors the least. The residual errors are (12 12), (11 12), (1412), (12 12), (11-2 12), (11-712) and (12-1 12) or o, i, 2, o, -8, -3, -i and 2 squares of residual errors 0+1+4+0+ -64+ -09+ -01 = 574- 378 MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS To test whether this is the least, let us suppose that the most probable value is 11-5; then the residual errors are: -5, -5, 2-5, -5, 3, -2 and -6 respectively. 2 squares = -25 + -25+6-254- -25+ -09+ -04+ -36 = 7-49. Similarly, if we assume, say, 12-2 as the most probable value, Z (residual error) 2 = (. 2 ) 2 +(i-2)?+(i-8) 2 +(-2) 2 +(i) 2 +(-5) 2 +(-i) 2 = -04+1-44+3-24+ -04+1+ -25+ -oi = 6-02 both of which totals exceed 5-74. To find the Probable Error of the Arithmetic Mean. Let r = the probable error of any one of the observations ; then if this is an "average" error, i. e., if errors greater are as likely to occur as errors smaller, the probability that the error is less than r is \. Now, the probability that an error lies within the range r to -\-r T f+r -I 2 2 [' - r - is =1 e h *dr = -=.1 e h2 dr T f+r -I 2 [' =1 e h *dr = -=.1 e hV-n-J -r flVirJ - /r /for dr=hd( r ) and the limits are now those for T and not those for r\ \ \hj h I There must be some connection between the amount of error and the fineness of measurement, i. e., between r and h, and this we must now find. If X = h A/V' o x x V ir-i o and we see from the above statement that the value of this integral is to be . 9 o XT , X * , X 3 . N o w e i i- jf -i u i 2 6 and thus e~ X2 i X 2 -| ^-+ . 2 o and if X 2 is small we may perform the integration by way of expansion in series : if X 2 is not small the value of the integral would be read from probability tables which give the values of the 2 /-x _ X 2 integral ^ I e ^X : these tables being given in the Transactions VWo of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, Vol. xxxix. For the present MATHEMATICAL PROBABILITY 379 application of the integral, however, X is a small quantity, and a sufficiently correct result is obtained by expanding in a series and calculating from a few terms in this series. Thus L _T o fh -X 2 -2 / rh --' ~ -41 dX = - 2 ( (i VTT\J FIG. 141. Hence and this equation may be written v5 = /r_j:L . ' or if for j- we again write X X 3 X 5 X 7 44SI = X 1 h terms which are very small. 3 10 42 By selecting values of X and plotting, the solution of this equation is found, the final plotting being represented in Fig. 141, where it is seen that the solution is X = -4769. 3 8o MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS Y Thus T = '4769 or r = -4769^. Y [If solved to a greater degree of accuracy, the value of r is found to be -47696^, and this figure will be used in the work that follows.] Again, if n equally good measurements have been made, each will have what is termed a weight of unity, i. e., none is better or worse than any other, and when working towards the result to be deduced from the measurements, equal consideration must be paid to each measurement ; also the A.M. is said to have a weight of n since on the average n observations of equal weight must be made to give a result as true as the A.M. r Knowing that r m = ~/^ Vn where r m = probable error of the A.M. and r = probable error of any observation weight of A.M. n and also r-^-r ?- *r- r- = - weight of one observation i , . , .. v which we can write as = - w i we can link up w m and w with r m and r, for ^!-^i r* n w m or the weight varies inversely as the square of the probable error. Thus the determination of the probable error, whilst a useful guide to the accuracy of the one set of observations, is more use- ful in fixing the relative weights that must be given to different sets of observations. Thus, if three sets of observations have been made on a certain length with the results that the probable errors of the A.M. are 45, -29, and -51 respectively ; then the weights to be given to these sets are - ^ -. -^ - r^ respectively (.45)2 (. 29 ) 2 (-5i) 2 or -494 1-19 -384. Then in assessing for the final result, by far the most reliance would be placed on the second set of observations, less on the first, and least on the third set ; this fact being well illustrated by MATHEMATICAL PROBABILITY 381 Fig. 142, the resultant weight being nearer to the weight 1-19 than to either of the other weights. 1R.2-068 494 1-19 394 FIG. 142. To return to the object of this paragraph : If #! # 2 *s are the actual errors of observation, then the probability that each falls within the small range 8* is i l^ 2 i -(^Y P! = ^j V*/ 8* P 2 = -7=e ^ h) (&) etc., hVir hVir and the probability that they all fall within this range at the same time will be less than either of the separate probabilities ; it will actually be the product of these.

The difference in the two sums may be expressed rather more accurately by the relation Yl ^Xj 2 = - - 2 (residual error) 2 . w r Hence if for 2 (residual error) 2 we write Applying these results to Example I on p. 377, W = 574 n = 7 then ^ * - '6745^ = -2475 MATHEMATICAL PROBABILITY 383 / 2n^r e z /2X574 c also h = v 7 v == v =i '3 v (n i)Xn 6 *. e., h has a very high value ; and this would be expected, for the "fineness " of reading, as judged by the results, is not at all good (one error being as much as 2 in 12). Example 2. In a chain survey four measurements of a base line gave 867-35, 867-51, 867-28 and 867-62 links respectively. Find the best length and the probable error in this length. The best result is the A.M. of these, i. e., 867-35+867-5I+867-28+867-62 4 867-44 links and whilst this is the best result it contains a probable error. Probable error in A.M. = ^=-6745\/^Yy = -6745 /( Q9) 2 +(-Q7) 2 +( 4X3 - -6745 V ^ = -0517 i. e., the base line measurement (867-44) is subject to an error of 0517 link, and as this result could not be bettered it would be unnecessary to repeat this portion of the survey. The probable error in any one observation would be '='6745 \-- = -io3, so that there is a decided gain in accuracy obtained by increasing the number of observations. (Cf. "repetition," when working with the theodolite.) It is of interest to find h for this example. 2X-07I _ -J = ' 2176 and as this is a small quantity we are confirmed in our conclusion that the observations were well made. Example 3. The mean values of the three angles of a spherical triangle were calculated from the actual observations to be 75 40' 21 -6", 39 1 i' 47-3", and 65 7' 56-2"; and these values were subject to probable errors 2-9", 3-6*, and 4-3* respectively. From a knowledge MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS of the area of the triangle, the spherical excess of the triangle was found to be 3-3*. Make the necessary adjustments to the angles to satisfy this condition. The actual spherical excess = (75 40'2i-6"+39 ii / 47-3"+657 / 56-2")-i8o There is thus (5-1 3-3) to be divided among the angles, according to the respective weights ; and these weights are in the proportion or -119 -077 -054, the sum of the weights being -250. IIO *O77 Hence the corrections to be applied are Xi-8, xi-8. and 250 -250 ^ xi '8 to the respective angles; all these corrections being sub- 250 tracted, since the observed angles give a spherical excess greater than should actually be the case. These corrections are -857, -555, and -389. Hence the true angles are (75 40' 21-6* -86*), (39 ii'47'3* -56") and (65 / 56-2*- -39*), or 75 40' 20-74", 39 II/ 46'74' / and 65 7' 55-81*. Example 4. Measurements of an angle in a traverse survey were made by two different observers, with the following results : Readings by A. Readings by B. 76 50' 20* 76 50' 55" 76 50' 50* 76 50' 35* 76 50' 30" 76 51' 15" 76 51' 10* 76 51' 20* 76 5 0' 3 0* 76 51' o" 76 51' o" 76 50' 45* 76 50' 40* 76 50' 25* 76 50' 30* 76 50' 40" Compare the two results from the point of accuracy, and find the most probable value of the angle. We must first find the arithmetic mean of each set of observations, and then, by subtracting this from each reading, we determine the residual errors. The A.M. of set A = 76 50' 4 1-25* and A.M. of set B = 76 50' 5 1 -88*.

The most probable value of the angle, taking into account the two sets of readings, will be obtained by the calculation of the " weighted mean," i. e., the mean of the two arithmetic means already found, determined with due regard to the respective weights to be given to A's readings and B's readings. Dealing only with the seconds, the most probable value (41-25 x i -244) + (5 1 -88 x i) 1 + 1-244 51-31+51-88 _ 103-19 2-244 2-244 = - - = 46 seconds.
