The time of rotation of the earth on its axis is called a sidereal day, for the following reason : If a permanent object be placed on the surface of the earth, always retaining the same position, it may be so located as to be posited in the same plane with the observer and some aolected fixed star at the same instant of time; although this coincidence may be but momentary, still this coincidence con- tinually recurs, and the interval elapsed between two consecutive coincidences has always throughout all ages appeared the same. It is this interval that is called a sidereal day. The sidereal day increased in a certain ratio, and called the mean solar day, has been adopted as the standard of time. Thus, 366-256365160 sidereal days = 866-256365160 - 1 or 365-256365160 mean solar days, whence sidereal day : mean solar day : : 365-256365160 : 366-266365160 : : 0-997269672 : 1 or as 1 : 1-002737803, when 23 hours, 56 imnutes 4-0996608 sec. of mean solar time = 1 sidereal day; and 24 hours, 3 minutes, 56-5461797 see. of sidereal time = 1 mean solar day. The true solar day is the interval hetween two successive coinci- dences of the sun with a fixed object on the earth's surface, bring- ing the sun, the fixed object, and the observer in the same plane. This interval is variable, but is susceptible of a maximum and minimum, and oscillates ahont that mean period which is called a mean solar day. Apparent or true time is that which is denoted by the sun-dial, from the apparent motion of the sun in its diurnal revolution, and differs several minutes in certain parts of the ecliptic from the mean time, or that shown by the clock. The difference is called the equation of time, and is set down in the almanac, in order to ascertain the true time. hv Google ARITHMETIC. Arithmetic is the art or Bcience of numbering; being that branch of Matlicmatics which treats of the nature and properties of numbers. When it treats of whole numbers, it is called Com- mon Arithmetic ; but when of broken numbers, or parts of num- bers, it is called Fractiom. Unity, or a Unit, is that by which every thing is called one ; being the beginning of number ; as one man, one ball, one gun. JVumher is either simply one, or a compound of severul units ; as one naan, three men, ten men. An Integer or Whole Number, is some certain precise quantity of units ; as one, three, ten. These are so called as distinguiohed from Fractions, which are broken numbers, or parts of numbers ; as one-half, two-thirda, or three-fourths, NOTATIOIT AND NTTMERATION. NOTATIOH, or Numeration, teaches to denote or express any pro- posed number, either by words or characters ; or to read and write down any sum or number. The numbers in Arithmetic are expressed by the following ten digits, or Arabic numeral figures, which were introduced into Europe by the Moors about eight or nine hundred years since : viz. 1 one, 2 two, 3 three, 4 four, 5 five, 6 six, 7 seven, 8 eight, 9 nine, cipher or nothing. These characters or figures were formerly all called by the general name of Ciphers; whence it came to pass that the art of Arithmetic was then often called Ciphering. Also, the first nine are called Significant Figures, as distinguished from the cipher, which is quite insignificant of itself. Besides this value of those figures, they have also another, which depends upon the place they stand in when joined together ; as in the following Table: 6 7 6 7 6 5 7 (5 8 7 hv Google NOTATION AKD KUMERATIOS. 11 Here any figure in the first place, reckoning from right to left, denotes only its own simple value ; but that in the second place denotes tea times its simple value ; and that in the third place a hundred times its simple value ; and so on ; the value of any figure, in each successive place, being always ten times its former value. Thus, in the number 1796, the 6 in the first place denotes only six units, or simply six ; 9 in the second place signifies nine tens, or ninety; 7 in the third place, seven hundred; and the 1 in the fourth place, one thousand ; so that the whole number is read thus — one thousand seven hundred and ninety-six. As to the cipher 0, it stands for nothing of itself, but being joined on the right-hand side to other figures, it increases their value in the same tenfold proportion ; thus, 5 signifies only five ; but 50 denotes 5 tens, or fifty ; and 500 is five hundred ; and so on. For the more easily reading of large numbers, they are divided into periods and half-periods, each half-period consisting of three figures ; the name of the first period being units ; of the second, millions ; of the third, millions of millions, or bi-millions, contracted to billions ; of the fourth, millions of millions of millions, or tri- millions, contracted to trillions; and so on. Also, the first part of any period is so many units of it, and the latter part so many thousands. The following Table contains a summary of the whole doc- Periods.

The Romans, like several other nations, expressed their numbers by certain letters of the alphabet. The Romans only used seven numeral letters, being the seven following capitals : viz. I for one ; YioT five; Xiorten; Lfor fifty ; Cfor a, hundred; D for five hun- dred ; M for a thousand.

The Role of Three teaches how to find a fourth proportional to three numbers given. Whence it is also sometimes called the Rule of Proportion. It is called the Rule of Three, because three terms or numbers are given to find the fourth ; and because of its great and extensive usefulness, it is often called the Golden Rule. This Rule is usually considered as of two kinds, namely, Direct and Inverse, The Rule of Three Direct is that in which more requires more, or less requires less. As in this : if 3 men dig 21 yards of trench in a certain time, how much will 6 men dig in the same time ? Here more requires more, that is, 6 men, which are more than 3 men, will also perform more work in the same time. Or when it is thus : if 6 men dig 42 yards, how much will 3 men dig in the same time ? Here, then, less requires less, or 3 men will perform proportionally less work than 6 men in the same time. In both these cases, then, the Rule, or the Proportion, is Direct; and the stating must be thus. As 3 : 21 : : 6 : 42, or thus, As 6 : 42 : : 3 : 21. But, the Rule of Three Inverse ia when more requires less, or less requires more. As in this : if 3 men dig a certain quantity of trench in 14 hours, in Low many hours will 6 men dig the like quantity? Here it is evident that 6 men, being more than 3, will perform an equal quantity of work in less time, or fewer hours. Or thus : if 6 men perform a certain quantity of work in 7 hours, in how many hours will 3 men perform the same ? Here less requires more, for 3 men will take more hours than 6 to perform the same work. In both these cases, then, the Rule, or the Pro- portion, ia Inverse ; and the stating must be thus, As 6 : 14 : : 3 : 7, or thus. As 3 : 7 : : 6 : 14. And in all these statings the fourth term is found, by multiply- ing the 2d and 3d terms together, and dividing the product by the 1st term. Of the three given numbers, two of them contain the supposi- tion, and the third a demand. And for stating and working ques- tions of these kinds observe the following general Rule : Rule, — State the question by setting down in a straight line the three given numbers, in the following manner, viz. so that the 2d term be that number of supposition which is of the same kind that the answer or 4th term ia to be ; making the other number of sup- position the 1st term, and the demanding number the 3d term, when the question is in direct proportion ; but contrariwise, the other number of supposition the third term, and the demanding number the 1st term, when the question has inverse proportion. Then, in both cases, multiply the 2d and 3d terms together, and divide the product by the first, which will give the answer, or 4th term sought, of the same denomination as the second term. hv Google 14 TEE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. Note, If the first and third tenna consist of different denomina- tioRB, reduce them both to the same ; and if the second terra be a compound number, it is mostly convenient to reduce it to the lowest denomination mentioned. If, after division, there be any remainder, reduce it to the next lower denomination, and divide by the same divisor as before, and the quotient will be of this last denomina- tion. Proceed in the same manner with all the remainders, till they be reduced to the lowest denomination which the second term admits of, and the several c^uotients taken together will be the answer required. Note also. The reason for the foregoing Rules will appear when we come to treat of the nature of Proportions. Sometimes also two or more statings are necessary, which may always be known from the nature of the question.

Compound Proportion teaches how to resolve such questions as require two or more statings by Simple Proportion ; and that, whether they be Direct or Inverse. In these questions, there is always given an odd number of terms, either five, or seven, or nine, &c. These are distinguished into terms of supposition and terms of demand, there being always one term more of the former than of the latter, which is of the same kind with the answer sought. Rule. — Set down in the middle place that term of supposition which is of the same kind with the answer sought. Take one of the other terms of supposition, and one of the demanding terms which is of the same kind with it; then place one of them for a first term, and the other for a third, according to the directions given in the Rule of Three. Do the same with another term of supposition, and its corresponding demanding terra ; and so on if there be more terms of each kind ; setting the numbers under each other which fall all on the left-hand side of the middle term, and the same for the others on the right-hand side. Then to work. By several Operations. — Take the two upper terms and the mid- dle term, in the same order aa they stand, for the first Rule of Three question to be worked, whence will be found a fourth term. Then take this fourth number, so found, for the middle term of a second Rule of Three question, and the next two under terms in the .1 stating, in the same order as they stand, finding a fourth hv Google OF COMMON FRACTIONS. 15 term from them ; and so on, as far as there are any numbers in the genera! stating, making always the fourth number resulting from each simple stating to he the second term of the next following one. So shall the last resulting number be the answer to the question. -By one Operation. — Multiply together all the terms standing under each other, on the left-hand side of the middle term ; and, in like manner, multiply together all those on the right-hand side of it. Then multiply the middle term by the latter product, and divide the result by the former product, so shall the quotient be the answer sought.

A Fraction, or broken number, is an expression of a part, or some parts, of something considered as a whole. It is denoted by two numberSj placed one below the other, with a line between them: , 3 numerator ) , . , . , , ^''"''Tdenominator | ^^''"^ '^ "^'"'^ throe -fourths. The Denominator, or number placed below the line, shows how many equal parts the whole quantUy is divided into ; and repre- sents the Divisor in Division. And the Numerator, or number set above the line, shows how many of those parts are expressed by the Fraction ; being the remainder after division. Also, both these numbers are, in general, named the Terms of the Fractions. hv Google IG THE PBACIICAIi MODEL CALCULATOR. Fractions are either Proper, Improper, Simple, Compound, or Mixed. A Proper Fraction is when the numerator is less than the deno- minator ; as J, or ^, or f , &c. An Improper Fraction is when the numerator is equal to, or exceeds, the denominator; as |, or f, or I, &c. A Simple Fraction is a single expression denoting any number of parts of the integer ; as ^, or |. A Compovtnd Fraction is the fraction of a fraction, or several fractions connected with the word of between them ; as J of ^, or I of I of 3, &e. A Mixed Number is composed of a whole number and a fraction together; as 3J, or 12|, &c. A whole or integer number may he expressed like a fraction, by writing 1 below it, as a denominator ; so 3 is |, or 4 is *, &e. A fraction denotes division ; and its value is equal to the quo- tient obtained by dividing the numerator by the denominator; so '4^ is equal to 3, and ^/ is equal to 4. Hence, then, if the numerator be less than the denominator, the value of the fraction ia less than 1. If the numerator be the same as the denominator, the fraction is just equal to 1. And if the numerator be greater than the denominator, the fraction is greater than 1. EEDTJCTION OF FRACTIONS. Reduction 01? Fractions is the bringing them out of one form or denomination into another, commonly to prepare them for the opera- tions of Addition, Subtraction, &c., of which there are several cases. The Common Measure of two or more numbers is that number which will divide them both without a remainder ; so 3 is a com- mon measure of 18 and 24 ; the quotient of the former being 6, and of the latter 8. And the greatest number that will do this, is the greatest common measure : so 6 is the greatest common mea- sure of 18 and 24 ; the quotient of the former being 3, and of the latter 4, which will not both divide farther. Rule. — If there be two numbers only, divide the greater by the less ; then divide the divisor by the remainder ; and so on, divid- ing always the last divisor by the last remainder, till nothing remains ; then shall the last divisor of all he the greatest common measure sought. When there are more than two numbers, find the greatest com- mon measure of two of them, as before ; then do the same for that common measure and another of the numbers ; and so on, through all the numbers ; then will the greatest common measure last found be the answer. If it happen that the common measure thus found is 1, then the numbers are said to be incommensurable, or to have no common measure. hv Google REDUCTIOS OF FRACTIONS. 17 To find the greatest commoE measure of 1998, 918, and 522. 918 ) 1998 (2 So 54 is the greatest common measure 1836 of 1998 and 918. 162)918(5 Hence 54)522(9 810 486 108)162(1 3(S)54(1 108 36 54)108(2 18)36(2 108 36 So ttat 18 is the answer required. To ahhreviate or reduce fractions to their lowest tenm. EULE. — Divide the terms of the given fraction by any number that will divide them without a remainder ; then divide these quo- tients again in the same manner ; and so on, till it appears that there is no number greater than 1 which will divide them : then the fraction will be in its lowest terms. Or, divide both the terms of the fraction by their greatest com- mon measure, and the quotients will be the terms of the fraction required, of the same value as at first. That dividing both the terms of the fraction by the same num- ber, whatever it he, will give another fraction equal to the former, is evident. And when those dirisions are performed as often as can be done, or when the common divisor is the greatest possible, the terms of the resulting fraction must ho the least possible. 1. Any number ending with an even number, or a cipher, is divi- sible, or can be divided by 2. 2. Any number ending with 5, or 0, ia divisible by 5. 3. If the right-hand place of any number be 0, the whole is divisible by 10; if there be 2 ciphers, it is divisible by 100; if 3 ciphers, by 1000 ; and so on, which is only cutting off those ciphers. 4. If the two right-hand figures of any number be divisible by 4, the whole is divisible by 4. And if the tliree right-hand figures be divisible by 8, the whole is divisible by 8 ; and so on. 5. If the sum of the digits in any number be divisible by 3, or by 9, the whole is divisible by 3, or by 9. 6. If the right-hand digit be even, and the sum of all the digits be divisible by 6, then the whole will be divisible by 6. 7. A number is divisible by 11 when the sum of the 1st, 3d, 5th, &c., or of all the odd places, is equal to the sum of the 2d, 4th, 6th, &c., or of all the even places of digits. 8. If a number cannot be divided by some quantity less than the square of the same, that number is a prime, or cannot be divided by any number whatever. 9.

A Decimal Fraction ia that which has for its denominator a unit (1) with as many ciphers annexed as the numerator has places ; and it is usnally expressed by setting down the nnmerator only, with a point hefore it on the left hand. Thus, f^ is '5, and ^ is ■25, and ^ is "075, and ^^-^ is -00124 ; where ciphers are pre- fixed to make np as many places as are in the numerator, when there is a deficiency of figures. A mixed numher is made up of a whole number with some deci- mal fraction, the one being separated from the other by a point. TiiuSj 3-25 IB the same as 3^, or f|^. Ciphers on the right hand of decimals make no alteration in their value; for "5, or -50, or -500, are decimals having all the same value, being each = -^ or J. Eut if they are placed on the left hand, they decrease the value in a tenfold proportion. Thus, ■5 is ^ or 5 tenths, but -05 is only jl^ or 5 hundreths, and -005 is but Tiftj or 5 thousandtlis. The first place of decimals, counted from the left hand towards the right, is called the place of primes, or lOths ; the second is the place of seconds, or lOOths ; the third is the place of thirds, or lOOOths ; and so on.

So 1 is the index or exponent of the 1st power or root, 2 of the 2d power or square, 3 of the 3d power or cube, 4 of the 4th power, and so on. Powers, that are to be raised, are usually denoted by placing the index above the root or first power. So 2^ = 4, is the 2d power of 2. 2^ = S, is the 3d power of 2. 2'' = 16, is the 4th power of 2. 540^, is the 4th power of 540 = 85030560000. hv Google 'IThen two or more powers are multiplied together, their product will he that power whose index is the sum of the exponents of the factors or powers multiplied.

The root of any number, or power, is such a number as, being multiplied into itself a certain number of times, will produce that power. Thus, 2 is the square root or 2d root of 4, because 2^ = 2 X 2 = 4 ; and 3 is the cube root or 3d root of 27, because 3^ = 3 X 3 X 3 = 27. Any power of a given number or root may be found exactly, namely, by multiplying the number continually into itself. But there are many numbers of which a proposed root can never be exactly found. Yet, by means of decimals we may approximate or approach towards the root to any degree of exactness. These roots, which only approximate, are called Surd roots ; but those which can be found quite exact, are called Rational roots. Thus, the square root of 3 ia a surd root ; but the square root of 4 is a rational root, being equal to 2 : also, the cube root of 8 is rational, being equal to 2 ; but the cube root of 9 is surd, or irrational. Roots are sometimes denoted by writing the character \/ before the power, with the index of the root against it. Thus, the third root of 20 is. expressed by -^20; and the square root or 2d root of it ia v'20, the index 2 being always omitted when the square root is designed, AYhcn the power is expressed by several numbers, with the sign + or — between them, a line is drawn from the top of th e sign over all the parts of it ; thus, the third root of 45 — 12 is ■-^'45 ~ 12, or thus, -^(45 — 12), enclosing the numbers in parentheses. hv Google 30 THE I'KACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. But all roots are now often designed like powers, with fractional indices : thus, the square root of 8 is 8 , the cuhe root of 25 is 25 , and the 4th root of 45 - 18 is i5'^:;oII^ or, (45 - IS)''. TO EXTKACT THE SQUAKE ROOT. Rule, — Divide the given number into periods of two figures each, by setting a point over the place of units, another over the place of hundreds, and so on, over every second figure, both to the left hand in integers, and to the right in decimals. Find the greatest square in the first period on the left hand, and set its root on the right hand of the giv^n number, after the man- ner of a quotient figure in Division, Subtract the square thus found from the said period, and to the remainder annex the two figures of the next following period for a dividend. Double the root above mentioned for a divisor, and find how often it is contained in the said dividend, exclusive of its right-hand figure ; and set that quotient figure both in the quotient and divisor- Multiply the whole augmented divisor by this last quotient figure, and subtract the product from the said dividend, bringing down to the next period of the given number, for a new dividend. Repeat the same process over again, namely, find another new divisor, by doubling all the figures now found in the root ; from which, and the last dividend, find the next figure of the root as before, and so on through all the periods to the last. The best way of doubling the root to form the new divisor is by adding the last figure always to the last divisor, as appears in the following examples. Also, after the figures belonging to the given number are all exhausted, the operation may be continued into decimals at pleasure, by adding any number of periods of ciphers, two in each period.

Divide the page into three columns (i), (ii), (m), in order, from left to right, so that the breadth of the columns may increase in the same order. In column (iii) write the given number, and divide it into periods of three figures each, by putting a point over the place of units, and also over every third figure, from thence to the left in whole numbers, and to the right in decimals. 2. Find the nearest less cube number to the first or left-hand period ; set its root in column (iii), separating it from the right of the given number by a curve line, and also in column (i) ; then multiply the number in (i) by the root figure, thus giving the square of the first root figure, and write the result in (ii) ; multiply the number in (li) by the root figure, thus giving the cube of the first root figure, and write the result below the first or left-hand period in (ill) ; subtract it therefrom, and annex the next period to the remainder for a dividend. 3. In (i) write the root figure below the former, and multiply the sum of these by the root figure ; place the product in (ii), and add the two numbers together for a trial divisor. Again, write the root figure in (i), and add it to the former sum. 4. With the number in (ii) as a trial divisor of the dividend, omitting the two figures to the right of it, find the next figure of the root, and annex it to the former, and also to the number in (i). Multiply the number now in (i) by the new figure of the root, and write the product as it arises in (ii), but extended two places of figures more to the right, and the sum of these two numbers will be the corrected divisor ; then multiply the corrected divisor by the hv Google TO EXTRACT THE CUBE ROOT. 33 last root figure, placing the proiJuct as it arises below the cKvidcnd ; subtract it therefrom, annex another period, and proceed precisely as described in (3), for correcting the columns (i) and (ii). Then with the new trial divisor in (ri), and the new dividend in (iir), proceed as before. When the trial divisor is not contained in the dividend, after two figures are omitted on the right, the next root figure is 0, and there- fore one cipher must be annexed to the number in (i) ; two ciphers to the number in (ii) ; and another period to the dividend in (lli). When the root is interminable, we may contract the work very considerably, after obtaining a few figures in the decimal part of the root, if we omit to annex another period to the remainder in (ill) ; cat off one figure from the right of (il), and two figures from (i), which will evidently have the effect of cutting off three figures from each column ; and then work with the numbers on the left, as in contracted multiplication and division of decimals.

OF RATIOS, PEOPORTIONS, AND PEOGEESSIOKS. Numbers are compared to each other in two different ways : tho one comparison considers the difference of the two numbers, nnd is named Arithmetical Relation, and the difference sometimes Arithmetical Ratio : the other considers their quotient, and is ca!le!.t hv Google ARITHMETICAL PEOPORTION AND PROGRESSION. 35 Geometrical Relation, and the quotient the Geometrical Ratio. So, of these two numbers 6 and 3, the difference or arithmetical ratio is 6 — 3 or 3 ; hut the geometrical ratio is f or 2. There must be two numbers to form a comparison : the number which is compared, being placed first, is called the Antecedent ; and that to which it is compared the Consequent. So, in the two numbers above, 6 is the antecedent, and 3 is the consequent. If two or more couplets of numbers have equal ratios, or equal differences, the equality is named Proportion, and the terms of the ratios Proportionals. So, the two couplets, 4, 2 and 8, 6 are arith- metical proportionals, because 4 — 2 = 8 — 6 = 2; and the two cou- plets 4, 2 and 6, 3 are geometrical proportionals, because J = § = 2, the same ratio. To denote numbers as being geometrically proportional, a colon is set between the terms of each couplet to denote their ratio ; and a double colon, or else a mark of equality between the couplets or ratios. So, the four proportionals, 4, 2, 6, 3, are set thus, 4 : 2 : : 6 : 3, which means that 4 is to 2 as 6 is to 3 ; or thus, 4:2 = 6:3; or thus, 1 = 1, both which mean that the ratio of 4 to 2 is equal to the ratio of 6 to 3. Proportion is distinguished into Continued and Discontinued. When the difference or ratio of the consequent of one couplet and the antecedent of the nest couplet is not the same as the common difference or ratio of the couplets, the proportion is discontinued. So, 4, 2, 8, 6 are in discontinued arithmetical proportion, because 4 — 2 = 8-6 = 2, whereas, 2 - 8 = - 6 ; and 4, 2, 6, 3 are in discontinued geometrical proportion, because ^ = ^ = 2, but § = ^, which is not the same. But when the difference or ratio of every two succeeding terms is the same quantity, the proportion is said to he continued, and the num- bers themselves a series of continued proportionals, or a progression. So, 2, 4, 6, 8 form an arithmetical progression, because 4 — 2=6 — 4 = 8 — 6 = 2, all the same common difference ; and 2, 4, 8, 16, a geometrical progression, because ^ = ^ = ^ = 2, all the same ratio. When the following terms of a Progression exceed each other, it is called an Ascending Progression or Scries ; but if the terms decrease, it is a Descending one. So, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, &c., is an ascending arithmetical progression, but 9, 7, 5, 3, 1, &c., is a descending arithmetical progression : Also, 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, &c., is an ascending geometrical progression, and 16, 8, 4, 2, 1, &c., is a descending geometrical progression. AllITHMETICAL PROPORTION AND PROGRESSION. The first and last terms of a Progression are called the Extremes ; and the other terms lying between them, the Moans. The moat useful part of arithmetical proportions is contained in the following theorems : TiiEOBEM 1. — If four quantities he in arithmetical proportion, the sum of the two extremes will he equal to the sum of the two means. Thus, of the four 2, 4, 6, 8, here 2 + 8=4 + 6 = 10. hv Google 36 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. Theorem 2. — In any continued arithmetical progression, tlie sum of tlie two extremes is equal to the sum of any two means that are equally distant from them, or equal to double the middle term when there is an uneven numher of terms. Thus, in the terms 1, 3, 5, it is 1 + 5 = 3 + 3 = 6. And in the series 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, it ia 2 + 14 = 4 + 12 = 6 + 10 = 8 + 8 = 16. Theorem 3. — The difference between the extreme terms of an arithmetical progression, is equal to the common difference of the series multiplied by one less than the number of the terms. So, of the ten terms, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, the com- mon difference is 2, and one leas than the number of terms 9 ; then the difference of the extremes is 20 — 2 = 18, and 2 X 9 = 18 also. Consequently, the greatest term is equal to the least term added to the product of the common difference multiplied by 1 less than the numher of terms. Theorem 4. — The sum of all the terms of any arithmetical pro- gression is equal to the sum of the two extremes multiplied by the number of terms, and divided by 2 ; or the sum of the two extremes multiplied by the number of tho terms gives double the sum of all the terms in the series. This is made evident by setting tho terms of the series in an inverted order under the same series in a direct order, and adding the corresponding terms together in that order. Thus, in the series, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15; inverted, 15 , 13 , 11 , 9 , 7^ 5, _ 3, Ij the sums are, 16 + 16 + 16 + 16 -f- 16 + 16 + 16 + 16, which must be double the sum of the single series, and is equal to the sum of the extremes repeated so often as are the number of the terms. From these theorems may readily be found any one of these five parts ; the two extremes, the number of terms, the common differ- ence, and the sum of all the terms, when any three of them are given, as in the following Problems : PROBLESI I.

The moat useful part of Geometrical Proportion is contained in the following theorems ; Theorem 1. — If four quantities be in geometrical proportion, the product of the two extremes will be equal to the product of the two means. Thus, in the four 2, 4, 3, 6 it is 2 x 6 = 3 x 4 = 12. And hence, if the product of the two means be divided by one of the extremes, the quotient will give the other extreme. So, of hv Google GE0J1ETB.ICAL PROPORTION ASD PBOGKESSION", 39 the above numbers, tlie product of the means 12 -§- 2 = 6 the one extreme, and 12 -i- 6 = 2 the other extreme; and this is the foundation and reason of the practice in the Rule of Three. Theorem 2. — In any continued geometrical progression, the pro- duct of the two extremes is equal to the product of any tivo means that are equally distant from them, or equal to the square of the middle term when there is an uneven number of terms. Thus, in the terms 2, 4, 8, it is 2 X 8 = 4 X 4 = 16. And in the series 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, it is 2 X 128 = 4 X 64 = 8 X 32 = 16 X 16 = 256. Theorem 3. — The quotient of the extreme terms of a geome- trical progression is equal to the common ratio of the series raised to the power denoted by one less than the number of the terms. So, of the ten terms 3, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024, the common ratio is 2, one less than the number of terms 9 ; then 1024 the quotient of the extremes is — „— = 512, and 2^ = 512 also. Consequently, the greatest term is equal to the least term multi- plied by the said power of the ratio whose index is one less than the number of terms. Theorem 4. — The sum of all the terms of any geometrical pro- gression is found by adding the greatest term to the difference of the extremes divided by one less than the ratio. So, the sum 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024, {whose ratio 1024 — 2 is 2,) is 1024 -f- ^_^ = 1024 + 1022 = 2046. The foregoing, and several other properties of geometrical pro- portion, are demonstrated more at large in Byrne's Doctrine of Pro- portion. A few examples may here be added to the theorems just delivered, with some problems concerning mean proportionals.

Or, divide the greater term by the less, and extract the square root of the quotient, which will give the common ratio of the three terms : then multiply the less term by the ratio, or divide the greater term by it, either of these will give the middle term required.

Then multiply the least given term by the ratio for the first mean, and this mean again by the ratio for the second mean ; or, divide the greater of the two given terms hy the ratio for the greater mean, and divide this again by the ratio for tbo less mean. To find two geometrical mean proportionals between 3 and 24. Here, 8 ) 24 ( 8, its cube root, 2 is the ratio. Then, 3x2= 6, and 6 x 2 = 12, the two means. Or, 2-i H- 2 = 12, and 12 -4- 2 = 6, the same. That is, the two means between 3 and 24, are 6 and 12. To find any numher of geometrical mean proportionals between two numbers. Rule. — Divide the greater number by the leas, and extract such root of the quotient whose index is one more than the number of means required, that is, the 2d root for 1 mean, the 3d root for 2 means, the 4th root for 3 means, and so on ; and that root will be the common ratio of all the terms.

That is, 6, 12, 24, 48 are the four means between 3 and 96. OP MUSICAL PROPORTION. There is also a third kind of proportion, called Musical, which, being but of little or no common use, a very short account of it may here suffice. Musical proportion is when, of three numbers, the first has the same proportion to the third, as the difference between the first and second has to the difference between the second and third. As in these three, 6, 8, 12 ; where, 6 : 12 : : 8 - 6 : 12 - 8, that is, 6 : 12 : : 2 : 4. When four numbers are in Musical Proportion ; tlien the fiv.-.-t has the same proportion to the fourth, as the difference bctwcei: the first and second has to the difference between the third ai^l fourth. Asia these, 6, 8, 12, 18; whoi-c, C: 18:; S - G: IS - 12, that is, 6 : 18 ;: 2 ; C. hv Google FELLOWSHIP. 41 When numbers are in Musical Progression, their reciprocals are in Arithmetical Progression ; and the converse, that is, when num- bers ai-e in Arithmetical Progression, their reciprocals are in Mu- sical Progression. So, in these Musicals 6, 8, 12, their reciprocals I, I, ^, arc in arithmetical progression ; for J -|- ^^ — ^^ = ^ ; and | + J = I — I; that is, the sum of tl^e extremes is equal to double the mean, which is the property of arithmeticak. PELIOWSHIP, OR PARTNERSHIP. Fellowship is a rule by which any sum or quantity may be divided into any number of parts, which shall be in any given pro- portion to one another. By this rule are adjusted the gains, or losses, or charges of part- ners in company ; or the effects of bankrupts, or legacies in case of a deficiency of assets or effects; or the shares of prizes, or tbe numbers of men to form certain detachments ; or the division of waste lands among a number of proprietors. Fellowship is either Single or Double. It is Single, when the shares or portions are to be proportional each to one single given number only ; as when the stocks of partners are all employed for the same time : and Double, when each portion is to bo proportional to two or more numbers ; as ivhen the stocks of partners are em- ployed for difi'erent times. SINGLE FELLOWSHIP. General Rule. — Add together the numbers that denote the proportion of the shares. Then, As the sum of the said proportional numbers Is to the whole sum to be parted or divided, So is each several proportional number To the corresponding share or part. Or, As the whole stock is to the whole gain or loss, So is each man's particular stock to his particular share of the gain or loss. To prove the work. — Add all the shares or parts together, and the sum will be equal to the whole number to be shared, when the work is right. To divide the number 240 into three such parts, as shall be in proportion to each other as the three numbers, 1, 2, and 3. Here 1 4- 2 -f- 3 = 6 the sum of the proportional numbers. Then, as 6 : 240 : : 1 : 40 the 1st part, and, as 6 : 240 : : 2 : 80 the 2d part, also as 6 : 240 :: 3 : 120 the 3d part. Sum of all 240, the proof. Three persons, A, B, C, freighted a ship with 340 tuns of wine ; of which, A loaded 110 tuns, B 97, and C the rest : in a storm, the hv Google THE PEACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. a were obliged to throw overboard 85 tuns ; how much must each perBon sustain of the loss ? Here, 110 + 97 = 20T tuns, loaded by A and E ; tberef., 340 — 20T = 133 tuns, loaded by C. hence, as 340 "' '""' and, a : 110 ; 110 : 27^ tuns = A's loss; ; 97 : 24-J tuns = B's loss ; ; 133 :_33i tuns = C's loss. Sum 85 tuns, the proof. DOUBLE FELLOWSHIP. Double Fellowship, as has been said, is concerned in cases in which the stocks of partners are employed or continued for dif- ferent times. EuLE. — Multiply each person's stock by the time of its continu- ance ; then divide the quantity, as in Single Fellowship, into shares in proportion to these products, by saying : As the total sum of all the said products Is to the whole gain or loss, or quantity to be parted, So is each particular product To the corresponding share of the gain or loss. SIMPLE INTEEEST, IsTEPiEST is the premium or sum allowed for the loan, or for- bearance of money. The money lent, or forborne, is caiied the Principal. The sum of the principal and its interest, added together, is called the Amount. Interest is allowed at so much per cent, per annum, which pre- mium per cent, per annum, or interest of a $100 for a year, is called the Rate of Interest. So, When interest is at 3 per cent, the rate is 3 ; 4 per cent 4; 5 per cent 5; 6 per cent 6. Interest is of two sorts : Simple and Compound, Simple Interest is that which is allowed for the principal lent or forborne only, for the whole time of forbearance. As the interest of any sum, for any time, is directly proportional to the principal sum, and also to the time of continuance ; hence arises the following general rule of calculation. General Rule, — As $100 is to the rate of interest, so is any given principal to its interest for one year. And again. As one year is to any given time, so is the interest for a year just found to the interest of the given sum for that time. Otherwise. — Take the interest of one dollar for a year, which, multiply by the given principal, and this product again by tlie time hv Google POSITION. 43 of loan or forbearance, io years and parts, for the interest of the proposed sum for that time. "VYhen there are certain parts or years in the time, as quarters, or months, or days, they may be worked for either by taking the ahquot, or like parts of tho interest of a year, or by the Rule of Three, in the usual way. Also, to divide hy 100, is done by only pointing off two figures for decimals. COMPOUND INTEEEST. Compound Interest, called also Interest upon Interest, is that ■which arises from the principal and interest, taken together, as it becomes due at the end of each stated time of payment. Rules. — 1. Pind the amount of the given principal, for the time of the first payment, by Simple Interest. 'I'hen consider this amount as a new principal for the second payment, whose amount calculate as before ; and so on, through all the payments to the last, always accounting the last amount as a new principal for the next payment. The reason of which is evident from the definition of Compound Interest. Or else, 2. Find the amount of one dollar for the time of the first pay- ment, and raise or involve it to the power whose index is denoted by the number of payments. Then that power multiplied by the given principal will produce the whole amount. From which the said principal being subtracted, leaves the Compound Interest of the same ; as is evident from the first rule. POSITION. Position is a method of performing certain questions which can- not be resolved by the common direct rules. It is sometimes called False Position, or False Supposition, because it makes a supposi- tion of false numbers to work with, the same as if they were the true ones, and by their means discovers the true numbers sought. It is sometimes also called Trial and Error, because it proceeds by triah of false numbers, and thence finds out the true ones by a comparison of the errors. Position is either Single or Double. SINGLE POSITION. Single Position is that by which a question is resolved by means of one supposition only. Questions which have their results proportional to their supposi- tions belong to Single Position ; such as those which require the multiplication or division of the number sought by any proposed number ; or, when it is to he increased or diminished by itself, or any parts of itself, a certain proposed number of times. Rule. — Take or assume any number for that required, and per- form the same operations with it as are described or performed in the question. Then say, as the result of the said operation is to the position hv Google 44 THE PRACnCAL MODEL CALCULATOE. or number assumed, so is the result in the question to the number sought. A person, after spending J and J of his money, has yet remain- ing $60, what had he at first ? Suppose he had at first $120 Proof.

What number is that, which multiplied by 1, and the product divided by 6, the quotient may be 14 ? 12. PERMUTATIONS AND COJIBINATIONS. The P^rMiMMiWsof any number of quantities signify the changes which these quantities may undergo with respect to their order. Thus, if we take the quantities a, h, c; then, a b e, a c h, h a e, b e a, c ah, ch a, are the permutations of thesa three quantities taken all together; a b, a e, b a, b c, c a, e b, are the permutations of these quantities taken two and two; a, b, c, are the permutation of these quantities taken singly, or one and one, &e. The number of the permutations of the eight letters, a, h, e, d, e, f, g, h, is 40320 ; becomes, 1.2.3.4.5.6.7.8 = 40320. DOUBLE POSITION. Double Position is the method of resolving certain questions by means of two suppositions of false numbers. To the Double Rule of Position belong such questions as have their results not proportional to their positions : such are those, in which the numbers sought, or their parts, or their multiples, are increased or diminished by some given absolute number, which is no known part of the number sought. Take or assume any two convenient numbers, and proceed with each of them separately, according to the conditions of the ques- tion, as in Single Position ; aad find how much each result is dif- ferent from the result mentioned in the question, noting also whether the results are too great or too little- Then multiply each of the said errors by the contrary supposi- tion, namely, the first position by the second error, and the second position by the first error. If the errors are alike, divide the difierence of the products by the difference of the errors, and the quotient will be the answer. But if the errors are unlike, divide the sum of the products by tho sum of the errors, for the answer. The errors are said to be alike, when they are either botli too great, or both too little ; and unlike, ^^ hen one is too grt:i! ■■:..-') rl^c other too little. hv Google MBNSUEAIION OP SUPERFICIES. 45 What number ia that, ■which, being maltiplied by 6, the prodnct increased by 18, and the sum divided by 9, the quotient shall be 20.

Add the quotient, last found, to the number belonging to the least error, when that number is too little, but subtract it when too great, and the result will give the true quantity sought. MENSTJEATION OF SUPERFICIES. The area of any figure is the measure of its surface, or the space contained within the bounds of that surface, without any regard to thickness.

To find the area of a segment of a circle. — Find the area of the sector, having the same arc with the segment, bj the last pro- lilem. Find the area of the triangle formed by the chord of the seg- ment, and the radii of the sector. Then the sum, or difference, of these areas, according as the segment is greater or less than a semicircle, will be the area re- quired. The difference between the versed sine and radius, multiplied bj \in\f the chord of the arc, will give the area of the triangle.

Divide the height, or versed sine, by the diameter, and find the quotient in the table of versed sines. Multiply the number on the right hand of the versed sine by the square of the diameter, and the product will be the area. When the quotient arising from the versed sine divided by the diameter, has a remainder or fraction after the third place of deci- mals ; having taken the area answering to the first three figures, subtract it from the next following area, multiply the remainder by the said fraction, and add the product to the first area, then the sum will be the area for the whole quotient.

Rule. — Divide the height, or versecl sine, hy the diameter of the circle, and finil the quotient in the column of heights. Then take out the corresponding area, in the column of nrcas, and multiply it hy the square of the diameter ; this ivill give the area of the segment. Beqoired the area of a segment of a circle, whose height is 3^ feet, and the diameter of the circle 50 feet. 3i = 3-25; and 3-25 h- 50 = -065. ■065, by the Table, = -021659; and -021659 X 50^ = 54-147500, the area required. To find the area of a circular zone. Rule 1. — When the zone is less than a semi-circle, divide the height by the longest chord, and seek the quotient in the column of heights. Take out the corresponding area, in the next column on the right hand, and multiply it bythesquareof the longest chord. Required the area of a zone whose longest chord is 50, and height 15. 15 ^ 50 = -300 ; and -300, hy the Table, = -280876. Hence -280876 x 50^ = 702-19, the area of the zone. Rule 2. — When the zone is greater than a semi-circle, take the height on each side of the diameter of the circle. Required the area of a zone, the diameter of the circle being 50, and the height of the zone on each side of the line which passes through the diameter of the circle 20 and 15 respectively. 20 -5- 50 = -400 ; -400, by the Table, = -351824 ; and -351824 x 50= = 879-56. 15 -^- 50 = -300 ; -300, by the Table, =-280876 ; and -280876 X 50* = 702-19. Hence 879-56 -|- 702-19 = 1581-75. Approximating rule to find the area of a segment of a circle. Rule. — Multiply the chord of the segment by the versed sine, divide the product by 8, and multiply the remainder by 2. Cube the height, or versed sine, find how often twice the length of the chord ia contained in it, and add the quotient to the former product ; this will give the area of the segment very nearly.

To find the length of an arc of a circle, or the curve of a rigid eemi^ellipse. EuLB. — Divide the height by the hase, and the quotient -will be the height of an arc of which the base is unity. Seek, in the Table of Circular or of Semi-elliptical arcs, as the case may be, for a number corresponding to this quotient, and take the length of the arc from the next right-hand column. Multiply the number thus taken out by the base of the are, and the product will be the length of the arc or curve required. In a Bridge, suppose the profiles of the arches are the arcs of circles ; the span of the middle arch is 240 feet and the height 24 feet ; required the length of the arc. 24 -=- 240 = -100 ; and 400, by the Table, is 1-02645. Hence 1-02645 X 24 = 246-34800 feet, the length required. The profiles of the arches of a Bridge are all equal and similar semi-ellipses ; the span of each is 120 feet, and the rise 18 feet ; required the length of the curve. 28 H- 120 = -233 ; and ■233 by the Table, is 1-19010. Hence 1-19010 x 120 = 142-81200 feet, the length required. In this example there is, in the division of 28 by 120, a remainder of 40, or one-third part of the divisor ; consequently, the answer, 142-81200, is rather less than the truth. But this difference, in even so large an arch, is little moro than half an inch ; tlierefore, except where extreme accuracy is required, it is not worth com- puting. These Tables are equally useful in estimating works which may be carried into practice, and the quantity of work to be executed from drawings to a scale. As the Tables do not afford the means of finding the lengths of the curves of elliptical ares which are less than half of the entire figure, the following geometrical method is given to supply the defect. Let the curve, of which the length is required to bo found, be ABC. Produce the height line Bd to meet the centre of the curve in ff. Draw the right line A^, and from the centre g, with the distance gB describe an arc EA, meeting Ag in h. Bisect Ah in i, and from the centre g with the radius gi describe the arc ik, meeting dB produced to k; then ik is half the arc ABC. hv Google TABLE OF RECIPROCALS OP SUMBERS.

CUTTINGS AND EMBiNKMENTS. The angle of repose upon railways, or that incline on which a carnage would rest in whatover situation it was placed, is said to be at 1 ia 280, or nearly 19 feet per mile ; at any greater rise than this, the force of gravity orercomea the horizontal traction, and carriages will not rest, or remain quiescent upon the line, but will of themselves run down tho line with accelerated Telocity. The angle of practical effect ia variously stated, ranging from 1 in To to 1 in 330. The width of land required for a railway must vary with the depth of the cuttings and length of embankments, together with the slopes necessary to he given to suit the various materials of which the cuttings are composed : thus, rock will generally stand when tho sides are vertical ; chalk varies from -^ to 1, to 1 to 1 ; gravel 1| to 1 ; coal 1|^ to 1 ; clay 1 to 1, &c. ; but where land can be obtained at a reasonable rate, it is always well to be on the safe side. The following Table ia calculated for the purpose of ascertain- ing the extent of any cutting in cubic yards, for 1 chain, 22 yards, or 66 feet in length, the slopes or angles of the sides being those which are most in general practice, and formation level equal SO feet.

The number of cubic yards in any other excavation may be as- certained by the following simple rule : To the width at formation level in feet, add the horizontal length of the side of the triangle formed by the slope, multiply the sum by the depth of the cutting, or excavation, and by the length, also in feet ; divide the product by 27, and tho quotient is the content in cubic yards. Suppose a cutting of any length, and of which take 1 chain, its depth being 14^ feet, width at the bottom 28 feet, and whose sides have a elope of 1| to 1, required the content in cubic yards : 14-5 X 1-25 = 1M25 + 28 x 14 = 645-75 X 66 = 42619-5 — 27 — = 1578-5 cubic yards. 5 { (6 + rV) ¥ + (6 + rf) 4 + 4 [S + r^^-^J — g^| gives the content of any cutting. In words, this formula will be : — To the area of each end, add four times the middle area ; the sum multiplied by the length and divided by 6 gives the content. The breadth at the bottom of cutting = S; the perpendicular depth of cutting at the higher end = ^; the perpendicular depths of cutting at the lower end = h'; I, the length of the solid ; and rh' the ratio of the perpendicular height of the slope to the horizontal base, mul- tiplied by the height h'. rh, the ratio r, of the perpendicular height of the slope, to the horizontal base, multiplied by the height Ji. Let & = 30 ; A = 50 ; /t' = 20 ; l=M feet ; and 2 to 5 or | the ratio of the perpendicular height of the slope to the horizontal base: ^ I (30 + § X 20) 20 + (30 + 3 X 50) 50 + 4 [30 -ff ^^ t, ^^ ~\ — ^ — I = 14 I 38 X 20 + 50 X 50 + 4 X 44 X 35 I ^ 131880 131880 cubic feet. — 07 — ~ 4884'44 cubic yards. This rule is one of the most useful in tho mensuration of solids, it will give the content of any irregular solid very nearly, whether it be bounded by right lines or not. hv Google THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR, Table of Sqiuires, Ouhes, Square and Ouhe Roots of Numbers.

To find the squares of numbers in arithmetteal progression ; or, to extend the foregoing table of squares. Rule. — Find, in the usual way, the squares of the first two num- bers, and subtract the less from the greater. Set down the square of the larger number, in a separate column, and add to it the dif- ference already found, with the addition of 2, as a constant quan- tity ; the product will bo the square of the next following number. The square of 1500 = 2250000 2250000 The square of 1499 = 2247001 Difference 2999 + 2 = 3001 The square of 1501 2253001 Difference 3001 + 2 = 3003 The square of 1502 2256004 To find the square of a greater number than is contained in the table. Rule 1. — ^If the number required to be squared exceed by 2, 3, 4, or any other number of times, any number contained in the table, let the square affixed to the number in the table be multiplied by the square of 2, 3, or 4, &c., and the product will be tho answer sought. _ Required the square of 2595. 2595 is three times greater than 865; and tho st^uarc of 805, by the table, is 748225. Then, 748225 x 3^ = 6734025. Rule 2, — If tho number required to be squared be an odd num- ber, and do not exceed twice the amount of any number contained in the table, find the two numbers nearest to each other, which, added together, make that sum ; then the sum of the squares of these two numbers, by the table, multiplied by 2, will exceed the square required by 1. Required the square of 1865. The two nearest numbers (932 -|- 933) = 1865. Then, by table (932= = 868624) + (933^ = 870489) = 1739113 x 2 = 3478226 - 1 = 3478225. hv Google RULES FOR SQUARES, CUBES, SftUARB BOOTS, ETC. 127 To find the cube of a greater number than is contained in tJie table. Rule. — Proceed, as in squares, to find hoiv many times the num- ber required to he. cubed exceeda the number contained in the table. Multiply the cube of that number by the cube of as many times as the number sought exceeds the number in the table, and tlie pro- duct will be the answer required. Required the cube of 3984. 3984 is 4 times greater than 996; and the cube of 90G, by the table, ia 988047936. Then, 988047936 x 4^ = 63235067904. To find the square or cube root of a highernumber than is in the table. Role. — Refer to the table, and seek in the column of squares or cubes the number nearest to that number whose root is sought, and the number from which that square or cube ia derived will be the answer required, when decimals are not of importance. Required the square root of 542869. In the Table of Squares, the ncareat number ia 543169 ; and the number from which that square has been obtained is 737, Therefore, ^"542869 = 737 nearly. To find more nearly the cube root of a higher number than is in the table. Rule. — Ascertain, by the table, the nearest cube number to the number given, and call it the assumed cube. Multiply the aasumed cube, and the given number, respectively, by 2 ; to the product of the assumed cube add the given number, and to the product of the given number add the assumed cube. Then, by proportion, as the sum of the assumed cube is to the sum of the given number, so ia the root of the aaaumed cube to the root of the given number. Required the cube root of 412568555. By the table, the nearest number is 411830784, and its cube root is 744. Therefore, 411830784 x 2 + 412568555 = 1236230123. And, 412568555 X 2 + 411830784 = 1236967894.

To obtain the s(iuare root or cube root of a number containing dect- mak, by inspection. Rule. — The square or cube root of a number containing deci- mals may be found at once by inspection of the tables, by taking the fiourcs cut off in the number, by the decimal point, in ^yairs if for the square root, and in triads if for the cube root. The fol- lowing example will show the results obtaineiJ, by simple inspec- tion of the tables, from the figures 234, and from the numbers formed by the addition of the decimal point or of ciphers. ■0483735465* ■13276143S ■152970585 ■284J: -2340 ■4837354G5 -61622401 2-34 1-52970585 1-32761489 4-88785465 2-860 15-2970585 2340 48-3735465 13-2761439 23400 152-970585 28-60 Tofindthe cubes of numbers in arithmetical progression, or to extend the preceding talle of cubes. Rule. — Find the cubes of the first two numbers, and subtract the less from the greater. Then, multiply the least of the two numbers cubed by 6, add the product, with the addition of 6 as a constant quantity, to the difference ; and thus, adding 6 each time to the sum last added, form a first aeries of differences. To form a second series of differences, bring down, in a separate column, tho cube of tlie highest of the above numbers, and add the difference to it. The amount will be the cube of the next general number. Required the cubes of 1501, 1502, and 1503. First series of differeTtees.

The partienlar esample whieli we sfiall select is tliat of an engine having 8 feet stroke and 64 inch cylinder. The breadth of the web of the crank at the paddle centre is the breadth which the web would have if it were continued to the paddle centre. Suppose that we wished to know the breadth of the web of crank of an engine whose stroke is 8 feet and diameter of cylinder 64 inches. The proper breadth of the web of crank at paddle centre would in this case be about 18 inches. To find the breadth of crank at paddle centre. — Multiply the square of the length of the crank m inches by 1'561, and then multiply the sqnare of the diameter of cylinder in inches by '12B5 ; multiply the square root of the sum of these products by the square of the diameter of the cylinder in inches ; divide the product by 45 ; finally extract the cube root of the quotient. The result is the breadth of the web of crank at paddle centre.

To illustrate the use of the succeeding rules, let us take the par- ticular example of an engine of 8 feet stroke and 64-inch cylinder, and let us suppose that the length of the connecting rod is 12 feet, and the side rod 10 feet. We find by a previous rule that the diameter of the connecting rod at ends is 6-08, and the ratio between the diameters at middle and ends of a connecting rod, whose length is 12 feet, is 1'504. Hence, the proper diameter at middle of the connecting rod = 6-08 X 1-504 inches = 9'144 inches. And again, we find the diameter of cylinder side rods at ends, for the particular engine which we have selected, is 4-10, and the ratio between the diameters at middle and ends of cylinder side rods, whose lengths are 10 feet, is 1-42.

It will be observed that the depth is made to depend upon the diameter of the cylinder and the fength of the lever, and not at all upon the length of the stroke, except indeed in so far as the length of the lever may depend upon the length of the stroke. Suppose it were required to find the proper depth across the centre of a side lever whose length is 20 feet, and the diameter of the cylinder 64 inches. According to the rule, the proper depth across the centre would be 39*26 inches. The following rule will give the proper dimensions for any size of engine : Rule, — To find the depth aeross^e centre of the side lever. — Multiply the length of the side lever In feet by -7428 ; extract the cube root of the product, and reserve the result for a, multiplier. Then square the diameter of the cylinder in inches ; extract the cube root of the result. The product of the final result and the reserved multiplier is the depth of the side lever in inches across the centre.

Accord- ing to the rule, ttie area of each steam port would be 202'26 square inches. "With regard to the rule, we may remark that the area of the hv Google 148 THE PRACTICAL MODBL CALCULATOR, Bteam port ought to depend principally upon the cnhical content of the cylinder, which again depends entirely upon the product of the square of the diameter of the cylinder and the length of the atroke of the engine. It is well known, however, that the quantity of steam admitted by a amall hole does not bear so great a proportion to the quantity admitted by a larger one, aa the area of the one does to the area of the other ; and a certain allowance ought to be made for this. In the absence of correct theoretical information on this point, we have attempted to make a proper allowance by supplying a constant ; but of course this plan ought only to be regarded as an approximation. Our rule is as follows : Rule. — To find the area of each steam port. — Multiply the square of the diameter of the cylinder in inches by tho length of the stroke in feet ; multiply this product hy 11 ; divide the last product by 1800 ; and, finally, to the quotient add 8. The result is the area of each steam port in square inches. To show the use of this rule, we shall apply it to a particular example. We shall apply it to an engine whose stroke is 6 feet, and diameter of cylinder 30 inches. Then, according to the rule, we have 30 = diameter of the cylinder in inches. _30 900 = square of diameter. 6 = length of stroke in feet. 5400 59400^1800 = 33 8 = constant to be added. 41 = area of steam port in square inches. When the length of the opening of steam port is from any cir- cumstance found, the corresponding depth in inches may be found, by dividing the number corresponding to the particular engine, by the given length in inches : conversely, the length may be found, when for some reason or other the depth is fixed, by dividing the number corresponding to the particular engine, by the given depth in inches : the quotient is the length in inches. The next rule is useful for determining the diameter of the steam pipe branching off to any particular engine. Suppose it were required to find the diameter of the branch steam pipe for an engine whose stroke is 8 feet, and diameter of cylinder 64 inches. According to the rule, the proper diameter of the steam pipe would be 13'16 inches. The following rule will be found to give the proper diameter of steam pipe for all sizes of engines.

The result is the diameter of the steam pipe in inches. To exemplify the use of this rule we shall take an engine whose stroke is 8 feet, and diameter of cylinder 64 inches. In this case we have as follows : — 64 = diameter of cylinder in inches. 64 4096 = square of diameter. 8 = length of stroke in feet. 82768 ■00498 = constant multiplier. 163-18 10'2 = constant to he added. 173-38 and v' 173-38 = 18-16. To find the diameter of the pipes connected with the engine. They are made to depend upon the nominal horse power of the engine. Suppose it were required to apply this rule to determine the size of the pipes for two marine engines, whose strokes are each 8 feet, and diameters of cylinder each 64 inches. We find the nominal horse power of each of these engines to bo 174-3. Hence, according to the rules, we have in succession. Diameter of waste water pipe = 15-87 inches, or between 15f and 16 inches. Area of foot-valve passage = 323 square inches. Area of injection pipe = 14'88 square inches. If the injection pipe be cylindrical, then by referring to the table of areas of circles, we see that its diameter would bo about 4f inches. Diameter of feed pipe == 4-12 inches, or between 4 and 4J inches. Diameter of waste steam pipe = 12-17 inches, or nearly 12J inches. Diameter of safety valve, When one is used =14-05 inches. When two are used = 9-94 inches. When three are used = 8-1^ inches. When four are used = 7-04 inches These results were obtained from the f illowmg rules, which will give the correct dimensions fo» all sizes of engines Rule 1.

The result is the diameter of the safety valve when four are used. Another rule for safety valves, and a preferable one for low pressures, is to allow -8 of a circular inch of area per nominal horse power. The next rule is for determining the depth across the web of the main beam of a land engine. Suppose we wished to find the proper depth at the centre of the main beam of a land engine whose main beam is 16 feet long, and diameter of cylinder 64 inches. Accord- ing to the rule, the proper depth of the web across the centre is 46'17 inches. This rule gives correct dimensions for all sizes of engines. Rule. — To find the depth of the web at the centre of the main beam of a land engine. — Multiply together the square of the di- ameter of the cylinder in inches, half the length of the main beam in feet, and the number 3 ; extract the cube root of the product. The result is the proper depth of the web of the main beam across the centre in inches, when the main beam is constructed of cast iron. hv Google THE STEAM ENGINE. 151 To illustrate this rule we shall take the particular example of an engine wliose main beam is 20 feet long, and the diameter of the cjlinder 64 inches.

Suppose it were required to find the depth at ends of a cast-iron main beam whose length is 20 feet, when the diameter of the cylinder is 64 inches. The proper depth will be 19-89 inches.

To find the dimensions of the feed-pump in cubic inches. Sup- pose we take the particular example of an engine whose stroke is 8 feet, and diameter of cylinder 64 inches. The proper content of the feed-pump would te 1093-36 cubic inches. Suppose, now, that the cold-water pump was suspended from the main beam at a fourth of the distance between the centre and the end, so that its stroke would be 2 feet, or 24 inches. In this case the area of the pump would be equal to 1093-36 -i- 24 = 45-556 square inches; so that we conclude that the diameter is between 7J and 7f inches. Conversely, suppose that it was wished to find the stroke of the pump when the diameter was 5 inches. We find the area of the pump to be 19-635 square inches; so that the stroke of the feed- pump must be equal to 1093-36 -r- 19-635 = 55-69 inches, or very nearly 55| inches.

To determine the sectional area of the fly-wheel rim when of cast iron. Suppose it were required to find the sectional area of the rim of a fly-wheel for an engine whose stroke is 8 feet, and diameter of cylinder 64 inches, the diameter of the fly-wheel itself being 30 feet. According to the rule, the sectional area of the rim in square inches = 146-4 x SIS = 119'03. We may remark that this calculation has heen made on the supposition that the fly- wheel 18 BO connected with the engine, as to make exactly one revo- lution for each double stroke of the piston. If the fly-wheel is so connected with the engine as to make more than one revolution for each double stroke, then the rim does not need to be so heavy as we make it. If, on the contrary, the fly-wheel does not make a complete revolution for each double Stroke of the engine, then it ought to be heavier than this rule makes it. Rule. — To find the sectional area of the rim of the fly-wheel when of cast iron. — Multiply together the square of the diameter of the cylinder in inches, the square of the length of the stroke in feet, the cube root of the length of the stroke in feet, and 6*125 ; divide the final product by the cube of the diameter of the fiy-wheel in feet.

In locomotive engines, the diameter of the cylim^er varies less than either the land or the marine engine. In few of the locomotive engines at present in use is the diameter of the cylinder greater than 16 inches, or less than 12 inches. The length of the stroke of nearly all the locomotive engines at present in use is 18 inches, and there are always two cylinders, which are generally connected to cranks upon the axle, standing at right angles with one another. AREA OF IKDIrCTION PORTa. Rule, — To find the size of the steam ports for the locomotive engine. — Multiply the square of the diameter of the cylinder hy ■068. The product ia the proper size of the steam ports in square inches. Required the proper size of the steam ports of a locomotive engine whose diameter is 15 inches. Here, according to the rule, size of steam porta = -068 x 15 X 15 = -068 X 225 = 15-3 square jnehes, or between 15^ and 15^ square inches. After having determined the area of the porta, we may easily find the depth when the length ia given, or, conversely, the length when the depth is given. Thus, suppose we knew that the length was 8 inches, then we find that the depth should be 15-3 -h 8 = 1*9125 inches, or nearly 2 inches; or suppose we knew the depth was 2 inches, then we would find that the length was 15-3 -r- 2 = 7'65 inches, or nearly 7| inches. AREA OP EDUCTION PORTS, The proper area for the eduction porta may be found from the fol- lowing rule. Rule. — To find the area of the eduction ports. — Multiply the square of the diameter of the cylinder in inches by ■128. The product is the area of the eduction ports in square inches.

Rules for the strength of boilers will be given hereafter. Rule. — To find the inside diameter of the boiler. — Multiply the diameter of the cylinder in inches by 3-11. The product is the inside diameter of the boiler in' inches. Required the inside diameter of the boiler for a locomotive engine, the diameter of the cylinders being 15 inches. In this example we have, according to the rule. Inside diameter of boiler = 15 x 3-11 = 46-65 inches, or about 3 feet 10| inches. tENGTU OP BOILER. The length of the boiler is usually in practice between 8 feet and ^ feet. DIAMETER OF STEAM DOME, INSIDE. It is obvious that the diameter of the steam dome may be varied considerably, according to circumstances ; but the first indication is to make it large enough. It is usual, however, in practice, to proportion the diameter of the steam dome to the diameter of the cylinder ; and there appears to be no great objection to this. The following rule will be found to give the diameter of the dume usually adopted in practice. Rule. — To find the diameter of the steam dome. — Multiply the diameter of the cylinder in inches by 1-43. The product is the diameter of the dome in inches. Required the diameter of the steam dome for a locomotive engine whose diameter of cylinders. is 13 inches. In this example we have, according to the rule, Diameter of steam dome = 1-43 x 13 = 18'59 inches, or about 18 J inches. HEIGHT OE STEAM DOME. The height of the steam dome may vary. Judging from prac- tice, it appears that a uniform height of 2-J feet would answer very well. hv Google 162 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. rrAMETER OP SAPETY- VALVE. In practice the diameter of the safety-valve varies considerably. The following rule gives the diameter of the safety-valve usually adopted in practice. Rule. — To jind the diameter of the safety-valve. — Divide the diameter of the cylinder in inches by 4. The quotient is the dia- meter of the safety-valve in inches. Required the diameter of the safety-valves for the boiler of a locomotive engine, the diameter of the cylinder being 13 inches. Here, according to the rule, diameter of safety-valve = 13 -^ 4 = 3 J inches. A larger size, however, is preferable, as being less likely to stick. DIAMETER OF VALVE SPINDLE. The following rule will be found to give the correct diameter of the valve spindle. It ia entirely founded on practice. Rule. — To findthe diameter of the valve spindle. — Multiply the diameter of the cylinder in inches by -076. The product is the proper diameter of the valve spindle. Required the diameter of the valve spindle for a locomotive engine whose cylinders' diameters are 13 inches. In this example we have, according to the rule, diameter of valve spindle = 13 x '076 = '988 inches, or very nearly 1 inch, DIAMETER OF CHIMNEY. It is usual in practice to make the diameter of the chimney equal to the diameter of the cylinder. Thus a locomotive engine whose cylinders' diameters are 15 inches would have the inside diameter of the chimney also 15 inches, or thereabouts. This rule has, at least, the merit of simplicity, AREA or FIRE-r.RATil. The following rule determines the area of the fire-grate usually given in practice. Wo may remark, that the area of the fire-grate in practice follows a more certain rule than any other part of the cDgine appears to do ; but it is in all cases much too small, and occasions a great loss of power by the urging of the blast it renders necessary, and a rapid deterioration of the furnace plates from excessive heat. Thfere is no good reason why the furnace should not be nearly as long as the boiler : it would then resemble the furnace of a marine boiler, and be as manageable. Rule. — To find the areaof the fire-grate, — Multiply the diameter of the cylinder in inches by '77. The product is the area of the fire- grate in superficial feet. Required the area of the fire-grate of a locomotive engine, the diameters of the cylinders being 15 inches. In this example we have, according to the rule, Area of fire-grate = -77 X 15 = 11'55 square feet, or about llj^ square feet. Though this rule, however, represents hv Google THE STEAM ENGINE. 163 the usual practice, the area of the fire-grate shouUl not be contingent upon the size of the cylinder, but upon tho quantity of steam to be raised. AREA OP UEATING SOUrACE. In the construction of a locomotive engine, one great object is to obtain a boiler which will produce a sufficient quantity of steam with as little bnlk and weight aa possible. This object is admirably ac- complished in the construction of the boiler of the locomotive en- gine. This little barrel of tubes generates more steam in an hoar than was formerly raised from a boiler and fire occupying a eon- siderable house. This favourable result is obtained simply by ex- posing the water to a greater amount of heating surface. In the usual construction of the locomotive boiler, it is obvious that we can only consider four of the six faces of the inside fire-box as effective heating surface ; viz. the crown of the box, and the three perpendicular sides. The circumferences of the tubes are also effective heating surface ; so that the whole effective heating sur- face of a locomotive boiler may bo considered to be the four faces of the inside fire-box, plus the sura of the surfaces of the tubes. Understanding this to be the effective heating surface, the following rule determines the average amount of heating surface usually given in practice. Htjle. — To find the effective heating surface. — Multiply the square of the diameter of the cylinder in inches by 5 ; divide the product by 2. The quotient is the area of the effective heating surface in square feet. Required the effective heating surface of the boiler of a locomotive engine, the diameters of the cylinders being 15 inches. In this example we have, according to the rule. Effective heating surface = 15^ x 5 -J- 2 = 225 x 5 -^ 2 = 1125 -h 2 = 5621 square feet. According to the rule which we have given for the fire-grate, the area of the fire-grate for this boiler would be about llj square feet. We may suppose, therefore, the area of the crown of the box to be 12 square feet. The area of the three perpendicular sides of the inside fire-box ie usually three times the area of the crown ; so that the effective heating surface of the fire-box is 48 square feet. Hence the heating surface of the tubes = 526'5 — 48 = 478'5 square feet. The inside diameters of the tubes are generally about If inches ; and therefore the circumference of a section of these tubes, ac- cording to the table, is 6-4978 inches. Hence, supposing the tube to be 8| feet long, the surface of one = 5'4978 x 8J ^ 12 = ■45815 X 8^ = 3-8943 square feet ; and, therefore, the number of tubes = 478-5 -h3-8943 = 123 nearly. The amount of heating sur- face, however, like that of grate surface, is properly a function of the quantity of steam to be raised, and the proportions of both, given hereafter, will be found to answer well for boilers of every description. hv Google 164 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCliLATOB. ABEA OF TVATER-LEVEL. This, of course, varies with the different circumstaneea of the boiler. The average area may be found from the following rule. Rule. — To find the area of the water-level. — Multiply the diame- ter of the cylinder in inches by 2'08. The product is the area of the water-level in square feet. Required the area of the water-level for a locomotive engine, whose cylinders' diameters are 14 inches. In thia case we have, according to the rule, Area of water-level = 14 x 2-08 = 29-12 square feet. CTJBICAL CONTEST OF WATER IN B01T.EE. This, of course, varies not only in different boilers, but also in the same boiler at different times. The following rule is supposed to give the average quantity of water in the boiler. Rule. — To find the cubical content of the water in the loiter. — Mnltiply the square of the diameter of the cylinder in inches by 9 : divide the product by 40, The quotient is the cubical content of the water in the boiler in cubic feet. Required the average cubical content of the water in the boiler of a locomotive engine, the diameters of the cylinders being 14 inches. In this example wo have, according to the rule, Cubical content of water = 9 X 14' -;- 40 = 44'1 cubic feet. CONTENT OF FEED-PUMP. In the locomotive engine, the feed-pump is generally attached to the cross-head, and consequently it has the same stroke as the pis- ton. As we have mentioned before, the stroke of the locomotive engine is generally in practice 18 inches. Hence, assuming the stroke of the feed-pump to be constantly 18 inches, it only remains for us to determine the diameter of the ram. It may be found from the following rule. Rdle, — To find the diameter of the feed-pump ™m..— Multiply the square of the diameter of the cylinder in inches by -Oil. The product is the diameter of the ram in inches. Required the diameter of the ram for the feed-pump for a loco- motive engine whose diameter of cylinder ia 14 inches. In this example we have, according to the rule, Diameter of ram = -Oil x 14' = -Oil x 196 = 2-156 inches, or between 2 and 2J inches. COBICAL CONTENT OE STEAil ROOM. The quantity of steam in the. boiler varies not only for different boilers, but even for the same boiler in different circumstances. But when the locomotive is in motion, there is usually a certain proportion of the boiler filled with the steam. Including the dome and the steam pipe, the content of the steam room will be found usually to be somewhat less than the cubical content of the water. hv Google THE STEAM ENGINE. 165 But as it is desirable that it should he increased, we give the fol- lowing rule. Rule. — To find the cubical content of tfi^ steam room. — Multiply the square of the diameter of the cylinder in inches by 9 ; divide the product by 40. The quotient is the cubical content of the steam room in cubic- feet. Required the cubical content of the steam room in a locomotive boiler, the diameters of the cylinders being 12 inches. In this example we have, according to the rule, Cubical content of steam room = 9 X 12^ h- 40 '^ 9 X 144 h- 40 = 32-4 cubic feet. CUBICAL CONTENT OF INSIDE PIRE-BOX ABOVE FIRE-BARS. The following rule determines the cubical content of fire-box usually given in practice. Rule. — To find the cubical content of inside fire-hox above fire- bars. — Divide the square of the diameter of the cylinder in inches by 4, The quotient is the content of the inside fire-box above fire- bars in cubic feet. Required the content of inside fire-box above fire-bars in a loco- motive engine, when the diameters of the cylinders are each 15 inches. In this example wo have, according to the rule. Content of inside fire-box above fire-bars = 15^ -;- 4 = 225 -s- 4 = 56^ cubic feet. THICKNESS OP THE PLATES OP BOILER. In general, the thickness of the plates of the locomotive boiler is I inch. In some cases, however, the thickness is only f, inch, INSIDE DIAMETER OF STEAM PIPE. The diameter usually given to the steam pipe of the locomotive engine may be found from the following rule. Rule. — To find the diameter of the steam pipe of the loeomotivp engine. — Multiply the square of the diameter of the cylinder in inches by '03. The product is the diameter of the steam pipe in inches. Required the diameter of the steam pipe of a locomotive engine, the diameter of the cylinder being 13 inches. Here, according to the rule, diameter of steam pipe = -03 x 13= = -03 x 169 = 5-OT inches ; or a very little more than 5 inches. The steam pipe is usually made too small in engines intended for high speeds. DIAMETER OE BEANCH STEAM PIPES. The following rule gives the usual diameter of the branch steam pipe for locomotive engines. Rule, — To find the diameter of the branch steam pipe for the lo- comotive engine. — Multiply the square of the diameter of the cylin- der in inches by -021. The product is the diameter of the branch steam pipe for the locomotive engine in inches. hv Google IbQ TIIH PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR, Rcquiruil the diameter of the branch steam pipes for a locomo- tive engine, when the cylinder's diameter is 15 inches. Here, ac- cording to the rule, diameter of branch pipe = ■021 x 15' = -021 x 225 = 4-726 inches, or about 4f inches. DIAMETER OF TOP OF BLAST PIPE. The diameter of the top of the blast pipe may he found from the following rule. Rule. — To find the diameter of the top of the blast pipe. — Mul- tiply the square of the diameter of the cylinder in inches by 0'17, The product is the diameter of the top of the blast pipe in inches. The diameter of a locomotive engine is 13 inches ; required the diameter of the blast pipe at top. Here, according to the rule, diameter of blast pipe at top = -017 X 13= = -017 X 169 =2-873 inches, or between 2^ and 3 inches ; but the orifice of the blast pipe should always be made as large as the demands of the blast will permit. DIAMITER OF FEED PIPES. There appear to be no theoretical considerations which would lead us to determine exactly the proper size of the feed pipes. Judging from practice, however, the following rule will be found to give the proper dimensions. Rule. — To find the diameter of the feed pipes. — Multiply tbo diameter of the cylinder in inches by -141. The product is the proper diameter of the feed pipes, Required the diameter of the feed pipes for a locomotive engine, the diameter of the cylinder being 15 inches. In this example we have, according to the rule, Diameter of feed-pipe = 15 X -141 = 2-115 inches, or between 2 and 2^ inches. DIAMETER OF PISTON ROD. The diameter of the piston rod for the locomotive engine is usually about one-seventh the diameter of the cylinder. Making practice onr gnide, therefore, we have the following rule. Rule. — To find the diameter oftkepiston rod for the loeomotive engine. — Divide the diameter of the cylinder in inches by 7. The quotient is the diameter of the piston rod in inches. The diameter of the cylinder of a locomotive engine is 15 inches ; required the diameter of the piston rod. Here, according to the rule, diameter of piston rod =15 -;- 7 = 2| inches. TUICKNEKS OP PISTON. The thickness of the piston in locomotive engines is usually about two-sevenths of the diameter of the cylinder. Making practice our guide, therefore, we have the following rule. Rule. — To find the thichness of the piston in the locomotive en- jme.— Multiply the diameter of the cylinder in inches by 2 ; divide hv Google THE STEAM BNG:NE. IdT the product by 7.

The diameter of the ball on the cross-head spindle may he found from the following rule. Rule. — To find the diameter of the ball on cross-head spindle of a locomotive engine. — Multiply the diameter of the cylinder in inches by -23. The product is the diameter of the ball on the cross-head spindle. Required the diameter of the ball on the cross-head spindle of a locomotive engine, when the diameter of the cylinder is 15 inches. Here, according to the rule, Diameter of ball = -23 x 15 = 3-45 inches, or nearly 3J inches, niAMETER OF THE INSIDE BEARINGS OF THE CRANK AXLE. It is obvious that the inside bearings of the crank axle of the locomotive engine correspond to the paddle-shaft journal of the marine engine, and to the fly-wheel shaft journal of the land-engine, "We may conclude, therefore, that the proper diameter of these hear- ings ought to depend jointly upon the length of the stroke and the diameter of the cylinder. In the locomotive engine the stroke is usually 18 inches, so that we may consider that the diameter of the bearing depends solely upon the diameter of the cylinder. The following rule will give the diameter of the inside bearing. Rule. — To find the diameter of the ingido hearing for the loco- motive engine. — Extract the cube root of the square of the diameter of the cylinder in inches ; multiply the result by -Oe.

DIAMETER or THE OUTSIDE BEARINGS OF THE CRANK AXLE. The crank axle, in addition to resting upon the inside bearings, is Bometimea also made to rest partly upon outside hearings. These outside bearings are added only for the sake of steadiness, and they do not need to be so strong as the inside hearings. The proper size of the diameter of these bearings may be found from tbe following rule. EuLE. — To find the diameter of outside hearings for the locomo- tive engine. — Multiply the square of the diameters of the cylinders in inches by '396 ; extract the cube root of the product. The result is the diameter of the outside bearings in inches. Required the proper diameter of the outside bearings for a loco- motive engine, the diameter of its cylinders being 15 inches.

It is usual to make the plain part of crank axle of the same sec- tional area as the inside bearings. Hence, to determine the sec- tional area of the plain part when it is cylindrical, we have the fol- lowing rule. Rule. — To determine the diameter of the plain part of crank axle for the locomotive engine. — Extract the cube root of the square of the diameter of the cylinder in inches ; multiply the result by ■96. The product is the proper diameter of the plain part of the crank axle of the locomotive engine in inches. Required the diameter of the plain part of the crank axlo for the locomotive engine, whose cylinders' diameters are 14 inches.

It is ohvious that the crank pin of the locomotive engine is not altogether analogous to the crank pin of the marine or land engine, and, like them, ought to depend upon the diameter of the cylinder, as it is usually formed out of the solid axle. Role. — To find the diameter of the crank pin for the locomotive engine, — Multiply the diameter of the cylinder in inches by '404. The product is the diametor of the crank pin in inches. Required the diameter of the crank pin of a locomotive engine whose cylinders' diameters are 15 inchea. In this example we have, according to the rule. Diameter of crank pin = 15 X '40-1 = 6-06 inches, or about 6 inchea. LENGTH OF CRANK PIN. The length of the crank pin usually given in practice may be found from the following rule. Rule. — To find the length of the crank pin. — Multiply the di- ameter of the cylinder in inches by •233. The product is the length of the crank pins in inches. Required the length of the crank pins for a locomotive engine with a diameter of cylinder of 13 inches. In this example wc have, according to the rule, Length of crank pin = 13 x -233 = 3-029 inches, or about 3 inches. The part of the crank axle answering to the crank pin is usually rounded very much at the corners, both to give additional strength, and to prevent aide play. These then are the chief dimensions of locomotive engines ac- cording to the practice most generally followed. The establish- ment of express trains and the general exigencies of steam locomo- tion are daily introducing innovations, the effect of which is to make the engines of greater size and power : but it cannot be said that a plan of locomotive engine has yet been contrived that is free from grave objections. The most material of these defects is the neces- sity that yet exists of expending a large proportion of the power in the production of a draft ; and this evil is traceable to the inade- quate area of the fire-grate, which makes an enormous rush of air through the fire necessary to accomplish the combustion of the fuel requisite for the production of the steam. To gain a sufficient area of fire-grate, an entirely new arrangement of engine must be adopted : the furnace must be greatly lengthened, and perhaps it may be found that short upright tubes, or the very ingenious ar- rangement of Mr. Dimpfell, of Philadelphia, may be introduced with advantage. Upright tubes have been found to be more effectual in raising steam than horizontal tubes ; but the tube plate in the case of upright tubes would be more liable to burn. hv Google THE BTEAM ENGIKE. 171 We bere give the preceding rules in formulas, in tlie belief that those well acquainted with algebraic aymbola prefer to have a rule expressed as a formula, as they can thus see at once the different operations to be performed.

The centre of gravity of a body is that point within it which continually endeavours to gain the lowest possible situation ; or it is that point on which the body, being freely suspended, will remain at rest in all positions. The centre of gravity of a body does not always exist within the matter of which the body is composed, there being bodies of such forms as to preclude the possibility of this being the case, but it must either be surrounded by the con- stituent matter, or so placed that the particles shall be symmetri- cally situated, with respect to a vertical line in which the position of the centre occurs. Thus, the centre of gravity of a ring is not in the substance of the ring itself, but, if the ring be uniform, it will be in the axis of its circumscribing cylinder ; and if the ring variea hv Google 176 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. in form or density, it will be situated nearest to those parts where the weight or density is greatest. Varying the position of a body will not cause any change in the situation of the centre of gravity ; for any change of position the body undergoes will only have the effect of altering the directions of the sustaining forces, which will still preserve their parallelism. When a body is suspended by any other point than its centre of gravity, it will not rest unless that centre be in the same vertical line with the point of suspension ; for, in every other position, the force which is intended to insure the equilibrium will not directly oppose the resultant of gravity upon the particles of the body, and of course the equilibrium will not obtain ; the directions of the forces of gravity upon the con- stituent particles are all parallel to one another and perpendicular to the horizon. If a heavy body be sustained by two or. more forces, their lines of direction must meet either at the centre of gravity, or in the vertical line in which it occurs. A body cannot descend or fall downwards, unless it be in such a position that by its motion the centre of gravity descends. If a body stands on a plane, and a line be drown perpendicular to the horizon, and if this perpendicular line fall within the base of the body, it will be supported without falling ; but if the perpendicular falls without the base of the body, it will overset. For when the perpendicular falls within the base, the body cannot be moved at all without raising the centre of gravity ; but when the perpendicular falls without the base towards any side, if the body be moved towards that side, the centre of gravity will descend, and conse- quently the body will overset in that direction. If a perpendicular to the horizon from the centre of gravity fall upon the extremity of the base, the body may continue to stand, but the least force that can be applied will cause it to overset in that direction ; and the nearer the perpendicular is to any side the easier the body will be made to fall on that side, but the nearer the perpendicular is to the middle of the base the firmer the body will stand. If the centre of gravity of a body be supported, the whole body is sup- ported, and the place of the centre of gravity must be considered as the place of the body, and it is always in a line which ia perpen- dicular to the horizon. In any two bodies, the common centre of gravity divides the line that joins their individual centres into two parts that are to one another reciprocally as the magnitudes of the bodies. The products of the bodies multiplied by their respective distances from the common centre of gravity are equal. If a weight be laid upon any point of an inflexible lever which is supported at the ends, the pressure on each, point of the support will be inversely as the respective distances from the point whoro the weight is applied. In a system of three bodies, if a line he drawn from the centre of gravity of any one of them to the common centre of the other two, then the common centre of all the three bodies divides the line into two parts that are to each other reciprocally as the hv Google THE STEAM ENGISE. 177 magnitude of the body from which the line is drawn to the sum of the magnitudes of tbe other two ; and, consequently, the single body multiplied by its distance from the common centre of ^rai ity ia equal to the sum of the other bodies multiplied by the distance of their common centre from the common centre of the pjstera If there be taken any point in the straight line or levei joinmg the centres of gravity of two bodies, the sum of the two products of each body multiplied by its distance from that point is erjual to the product of the sum of the bodies multiplied by the distance of their confmon centre of gravity from the same point. The two bodies have, therefore, the same tendency to turn the lever about the assumed point, as if they were both placed in their common centre of gravity. Or, if the line with the bodies moves about the assumed point, the sum of the momenta is equal to the momentum of the sum of the bodies placed at their common centre of gravity. The same property holds with respect to any number of bodies whatever, and also when the bodies are not placed in the line, but in perpendiculars to it passing through the bodies. If any plane pass through the assumed point, perpendicular to the line in which it subsists, then the distance of the common centre of gravity of all the bodies from that plain is equal to the sum of all the momenta divided by the sum of all the bodies. We may here specify the positions of the centre of gravity in several figures of very frequent occurrence. In a straight line, or in a straight bar or rod of uniform figure and density, the position of the centre of gravity is at the middle of its length. In the plane of a triangle the centre of gravity is situated in the straight line drawn from any one of the angles to the middle of the opposite side, and at two-thirds of this line dis- tant from the angle where it originates, or one-third distant from the base. In the surface of a trapezium the centre of gravity is in the intersections of the straight lines that join the centres of the opposite triangles made by the two diagonals. The centre of gravity of the surface of a parallelogram is at the intersection of the diagonals, or at the intersection of the two lines which bisect the figure from its opposite sides. In any regular polygon the centre of gravity is at the same point as the centre of magnitude. In a circular arc the position of the centre of gravity is distant from the centre of the circle by the measure of a fourth propor- tional to the arc, radius, and chord. In a semicircular arc the position of the centre of gravity is distant from the centre by the measure of a third proportional to the arc of the quadrant and the radius. In the sector of a circle the position of the centre of gravity is distant from the centre of the circle by a fourth propor- tional to three times the arc of the sector, the chord of the arc, and the diameter of the circle. In a circular segment, the position of the centre of gravity is distant from the centre of the circle by a space which is equal to the cube or third power of the chord divided by twelve times the area of the segment. In a semicircle 12 hv Google 178 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. tlic position of the centre of gravity is distant from the centre of the circle hy a space which is equal to four times the radius divided by the constant number 8-1416 X 3 = 9-4248. In a parabola the position of the centre of gravity is distant from the vertex by three-fifths of the axis. In a semi-parabola the position of the centre of gravity is at the intersection of the co-ordinates, one of which is parallel to the base, and distant from it by two-fifths of the axis, and the other parallel to the axis, but distant from it by three-eighths of the semi-base. The centres of gravity of the surface of a cylinder, a cone, and conic frustum, are respectively at the same distances from the origin as are the centres of gravity of the parallelogram, the triangle, and the trapezoid, which are sections passing along the axes of the re- spective solids. The centre of gravity of the surface of a spheric seg- ment is at the middle of the versed sine or height. The centre of gravity of the convex surface of a spherical zone is at the middle of that portion of the axis of the sphere intercepted by its two bases. In prisms and cylinders the position of the centre of gravity is at the middle of the straight line that joins the centres of gravity of their opposite ends. In pyramids and cones the centre of gravity is in the straight line that joins the vertex with the centre of gravity of the base, and at three-fourths of its length from; the vertex, and one-fourth from the base. In a semisphere, or semispheroid, the position of the centre of gravity is distant from the centre by three- eighths of the radius. In a parabolic conoid the position of the centre of gravity is distant from the base by one-third of the axis, or two-thirds of the axis distant from the vertex. There are several other bodies and figures of which the position of the centre of gravity is known ; but as the position in those cases cannot be defined without algebra, we omit them. Central forces are of two kinds, centripetal and centrifugal. Centripetal force is that force by which a body is attracted or impelled towards a certain fixed point as a centre, and that point towards which the body is urged ia called the centre of attraction or the centre of force. Centrifugal force is that force by which a body endeavours to recede from the centre of attraction, and from which it would actually fly off in the direction of a tangent if it were not prevented by the action of the centripetal force. These two forces are therefore antagonistic ; the action of the one being directly opposed to that of the other. It ia on the joint action of these two forces that all curvilinear motion depends. Circular motion is that afFection of curvilinear motion where the body is constrained to move in the circumference of a circle : if it continues to move so aa to describe the entire circle, it is denominated rotatory motion, and the body is said to revolve in a circular orbit, the centre of which is called the centre of motion. In all circular motions the deflection or deviation from the rectilinear course is constantly the same at hv Google THE STEAM ENGINE. 179 e¥ery point of tte orbit, in which case the centripetal and centri- fugal forces are equal to one another. In circular orbits the cen- tripetal forces, by which equal bodies placed at equal distances from the centres of force are attracted or drawn towards those centres, are proportional to the quantities of matter in the central bodies. This is manifest, for since all attraction takes place towards some particular body, every particle in the attracting body must produce its individual effect ; consequently, a body containing twice the quantity of matter will exert twice the attractive energy, and a body containing thrice the quantity of matter will operate with thrice the attractive force, and so on according to the quantity of matter in the attracting body. Any body, whether large or small, when placed at the same dis- tance from the centre of forco, ia attracted or drawn through equal spaces in the same time by the action of the central body. This is obvious from the consideration that although a body two or three times greater is urged with two or three times greater an attractive force, yet there is two or three times the quantity of matter to be moved ; and, as we have shown elsewhere, the velocity generated in a given time Js directly proportional to the force by which it is generated, and inversely as the quantity of matter in the moving or attracted body. But the force which in the present instance is the weight of the body is proportional to the quantity of matter which it contains ; consequently, the velocity generated is directly and inversely proportional to the quantity of matter in the attracted body, and is, therefore, a given or a constant quantity. Hence, the centripetal force, or force towards the centre of the circular orbit, is not measured by the magnitude of the revolving body, but only by the space which it describes or passes over in a given time. When a body revolves in a circular orbit, and is retained in it by means of a centripetal force directed to the centre, the actual velocity of the revolving body at every point of its revolution ia equal to that which it would acquire by falling perpendicularly with the same uniform force through, one- fourth of the diameter, or one-half the radius of its orbit ; and this velocity is the same as would be acquired by a second body in falling through half the radius, whilst the first body, in revolving in its orbit, describes a portion of the circumference which is equal in length to half the diameter of the circle. Consequently, if a body revolves uniformly in the circumference of a circle by means of a given centripetal force, the portion of the circumference which it describes in any time is a mean proportional between the diameter of the circle and the space which the body would descend perpen- dicularly in the same time, and with the same given force continued uniformly. The periodic time, in the doctrine of central forces, is the time occupied by a body in performing a complete revolution round the centre, when that body is constrained to move in the circumference by means of a centripetal force directed to that point ; and when hv Google loO THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCrLATOK. the body revolves in a circular orbit, the periodic time, or the time of performing a complete revolution, is expressed by the term nt -/ -i and the velocity or space passed over in the time ( ivill be •/ ds; in which expressions d denotes the diameter of the circular orbit described by the revolving body, « the space descended in any time by a body falling perpendicularly downwards with the same uniform force, t the time of descending through the space, s and n the circumference of a circle whose diameter is unity. If several bodies revolving in circles round the same or different centres be retained in their orbits by the action of centripetal forces directed to those points, the periodic times will be directly as the square roots of the radii or distances of the revolving bodies, and inversely as the square roots of the centripetal forces, or, what is the same thing, the squares of the periodic times are directly as tlie radii, and inversely as the centripetal forces. CENTRE or GYRATION. The centre of gyration is that point in which, if all the consti- tuent particles, or all the matter contained in a revolving body, or system of bodies, were concentrated, the same angular velocity would be generated in the same time by a given force aeting at any place as would be generated by the same force acting similarly on the body or system itself according to its formation. The angular motion of a body, or system of bodies, is the motion of a line connecting any point with the centre or axis of motion, and is the same in all parts of the same revolving system. In different unconnected bodies, each revolving about a centre, the angular velocity is directly proportional to the absolute velo- city, and inversely as the distance from the centre of motion ; so that, if the absolute velocities of the revolving bodies be propor- tional to their ridii or distances, the angular velocities will he equil If the axis of motion passes through the centre of gravity, then IS this centre called the principal centre of gyration. The distiuce of the <,entre of gyration from the point of suspen- sion, or the axis of motion in any body or system of bodies, is a geometrical mean betvieen the centres of gravity and oscillation iiom the same point or axis , consequently, having found the dis- tances of these centres m any proposed case, the square root of then product wdl gn e the distance of the centre of gyration. If any part of a system be coneened to be collected in the centre of gyration ol that particular part, the centre of gyration of the whole system will continue the same as before ; for the same force that moved this part of the system before along with the rest will move it now without any change ; and consequently, if each part of the system be collected into its own particular centre, the common centre of the whole system will continue the same. If a circle be described about the centre of gravity of any system, and the axis of rotation be made to pass through any point of the circumference, hv Google THE STEAM ENGINE. 181 the distance of the centre of gyration from that point will always be the same. If the periphery of a, circle revolve about an axis passing through the centre, and at right angles to its plane, it is the same thing as if all the matter were collected into any one point in the peri- phery. And moreover, the plane of a circle or a disk containing twice the quantity of matter as the said periphery, and having the same diameter, will in an equal time acquire the same angular velocity. If the matter of a. revolving body were actually to be placed in the centre of gyration, it ought either to be arranged in the circumference, or in two points of the circumference diametri- cally opposite to each other, and equally distant from the centre of motion, for by this means the centre of motion will coincide with the centre of gravity, and the body will revolve without any lateral force on any aide. These are the chief properties con- nected with the centre of gyration, and the following are a few of the cases in which its position has been ascertained. In a right line, or a cylinder of very small diameter revolving about one of its extremities, the distance of tho centre of gyration from tho centre of motion is equal to the length of the revolving line or cylinder multiplied by the square root of ^, In the plane of a circle, or a cylinder revolving about the axis, it is equal to the radius multiplied by the square root of |. In the circumference of a circle revolving about the diameter it is equal to the radius multiplied by the square root of J. In the plane of a circle revolving about the diameter it is equal to one-half the radius. In a thin circular ring revolving about one of its diameters as an axis it is equal to the radius multiplied by the square root of J. In a solid globe revolving about the diameter it is equal to the radiug multiplied by the square root of |. In the surface of a sphere revolving about the diameter it is equal to the radius multiplied by the square root of f . In a right cone revolving about the axis it is equal to the radius of the base multiplied by the square root of ^. In all these cases the distance is estimated from the centre of the axis of motion. We shall have occasion to illustrate these prin- ciples when we come to treat of fly-wheels in the construction of the different parts of steam engines. When bodies revolving in tho circumferences of different circles are retained in their orbits by centripetal forces directed to the centres, the periodic times of revolution are directly proportional to the distances or radii of the circles, and inversely as the veloci- ties of motion ; and the periodic times, under like circumstances, are directly as the velocities of motion, and inversely as the cen- tripetal forces. If the times of revolution are equal, the velocities and centripetal forces are directly as the distances or radii of the circles. If the centripetal forces are equal, the squares of the times of revolution and the squares of the velocities are as the dis- tances or radii of the circles. If the times of revolution are as hv Google 182 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. the radii of the circles, the velocities will be equal, and the cen- tripetal forces reciprocally as the radii. If several bodies revolve in circular orhits round the same or difi'erent centres, the velocities are directly aa the distances or radii, and inversely as the times of revolution. The velocities are directly as the centripetal forces and the times of revolution. The squares of the velocities are proportional to the centripetal forces, and the distances or radii of the circles. When the velocities are equal, the times of revolution are proportional to the radii of the circles in which the bodies revolve, and the radii of the circles are inversely as the centripetal forces. If the velocities be propor- tional to the distances or radii of the circles, the centripetal forces ■will bo in the same ratio, and the times of revolution will be equal. If several bodies revolve in circular orbits about the same or different centres, the centripetal forces are proportional to the dis- tances or radii of the circles directly, and inversely as the squares of the times of revolution. The centripetal forces are directly proportional to the velocities, and inversely as the times of revolu- tion. The centripetal forces are directly as the squares of the velocities, and inversely as the distances or radii of the circles. When the centripetal forces are equal, the velocities are propor- tional to the times of revolution, and the distances as the squares of the times or as the squares of the velocities. When the central forces are proportional to the distances or radii of the circles, the times of revolution are equal. If several bodies revolve in circular orbits about the same or different centres, the radii of the circles are directly proportional to the centripetal forces, and the squares, of the periodic times. The distances or radii of the circles are directly as the velocities and periodic times. The distances or radii of the circles are directly as the squares of the velocities, and reciprocally as the centripetal forces. If the distances are equal, the centripetal forces are directly as the squares of the velocities, and reciprocally as the squares of the times of revolution ; the velocities also arc reciprocally as the times of revolution. The converse of these principles and properties are equally true ; and all that has been here stated in regard to centripetal forces is similarly true of centrifugal forces, they being equal and contrary to each other. The quantities of matter in all attracting bodies, having other bodies revolving about them in circular orbits, are proportional to the cubes of the distances directly, and to the squares of the times of revolution reciprocally. The attractive force of a body is directly proportional to the quantity of matter, and inversely as the square of the distance. If the centripetal force of a body revolving in a circular orbit be proportional to the distance from the centre, a body let fall from the upper extremity of the vertical diameter will reach the centre in the same time that the revolving body describes one-fourth part of the orbit. The velocity of the descending body at any point of the diameter is proportional to hv Google THE STEAM ESGINE. 183 the ordinate of the circle at that point ; and the time of falling through any portion of the diameter is proportional to the arc of the circumference whose versed sine is the space fallen through. All the times of falling from any altitudes whatever to the centre of the orbit will he equal ; for these times are equal to one-fourth of the periodic times, and these times, under the specified condi- tions, are equal. The velocity of the descending body at the centre of the circular orbit is equal to the velocity of the revolving body. These are the chief principles that we need consider regarding the motion of bodies in circular orbits ; and from them we are led to the consideration of bodies suspended on a centre, and made to revolve in a circle beneath the suspending point, so that when the body describes the circumference of a circle, the string or wire by which it is suspended describes the surface of a cone. A body thus revolving is called a eoniaal pendulum, and this species of pendu- lum, or, as it is usually termed, the governor, is of great importance in mechanical arrangements, being employed to regulate the move- ments of steam engines, water-wheels, and other mechanism. As we shall have occasion to show the construction and use of this in- strument when treating of the parts and proportions of engines, we need not do more at present than state the principles on which its action depends. We must, however, previously say a few words on the properties of the simple pendulum, or that which, being sus- pended from a centre, is made to vibrate from side to side in the same vertical plane. PEHDULUMS. If a pendulum vibrates in a small circular arc, the time of per- forming one vibration is to the time occupied by a heavy body in falling perpendicularly through half the length of the pendulum as the circumference of a circle is to its diameter. All vibrations of the same pendulum made in very small circular area, are made in very nearly the same time. The space described by a falling body in the time of one vibration is to half the length of the pendulum as the square of the circumference of a circle is to the square of the diameter. The lengths of two pendulums which by vibrating describe similar circular ares are to each other as the squares of the times of vibration. The times of pendulums vibrating in small circular arcs are as the square roots of the lengths of the pendulums. The velocity of a pendulum at the lowest point of its path is pro- portional to the chord of the arc through which it descends to ac- quire that velocity. Pendulums of the same length vibrate in the same time, whatever the weights may be. From which we infer, that all bodies near the earth's surface, whether they be heavy or light, will fall through equal spaces in equal times, the resistance of the air not being considered. The lengths of pendulums vibrating in the same time in different positions of the earth's surface are as the forces of gravity in those positions. The times wherein pendulums of the same length will vibrate by different forces of gravity are inversely as the square hv Google 184 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. roots of the forces. The lengths of pendulums vibrating in dif- ferent places are as the forces of gravity at those places and the squares of the times of vibration. The timea in which pendulums of any length perform their vibrations are directly as the square roots of their lengths, and inversely as the square roots of the gravi- tating forces. The forces of gravity at different places on the earth's surface are directly as the lengths of the pendulums, and inversely as the squares of the times of vibration. These are the chief proper- ties of a simple pendulum vibrating in a vertical plane, and the prin- cipal problems that arise in connection with it are the following, viz. : To find the length of a pendulum that shall make any number of vibrations in a given time ; and secondly, having given the length of a pendulum, to find the number of vibrations it will make in any time given. — These are problems of very easy solution, and the rules for resolving them are simply as follow : — For the first, the rule is, multiply the square of the number of seconds in the given time by the constant number 394015, and divide the product by the square of the number of vibrations, for the length of the pendulum in inches. For the second, it is, multiply the square of the number of seconds in the given time by the constant number 39'1393, divide the product by the given length of the pendulum in inches, and extract the square root of the quotient for the num- ber of vibrations sought. The number 394015 is the length of a pendulum in inches, that vibrates seconds, or sixty times in a minute, in the latitude of Philadelphia, Suppose a pendulum is found to make 35 vibrations ia a minute ; what is the distance from the centre of suspension to the centre of oscillation ? Here, by the rule, the number of seconds in the given time is CO ; hence we get 60 X 60 X 39-1015 = 140765-4, which, being di- vided by 35 X 35 = 1225, gives 140765-4 -h 1225 = 114-9105 inches for the length required. The length of a pendulum between the centre of suspension and ihe centre of oscillation is 64 inches ; what number of vibrations will it make in 60 seconds ? By the rule we have 60 X 60 X 394015 = 140765-4, which, being divided hy 64, gives 140765-4 -^ 64 = 2199-46, and the square root of this is 2199-46 = 46'9, number of vibrations sought. When the given time is a minute, or 60 seconds, as in the two examples proposed above, the product of the constant numbei' 39-1015 by the square of the time, or 140765-4, is itself a constant quantity, which, heingkept in mind, will in some measure facilitate the process of calculation in all similar cases. We now return to the consideration of the conical pendulum, or that in which the ball re- volves about a vertical axis in the circumference of a circular plane which is parallel to the horizon. CONICAL PENnuHTM. If a pendulum he suspended from the upper extremity of a ver- tical axis, and be made to revolve about that axis by a conical mo- hv Google THE STEAM ENGINE. 185 fion, ivhicli constrains the revolving body to move in the circum- ference of a circle whose plane is parallel to the horizon, then the time in which the pendulum performs a revolution about the axis can easily be found. Let CD he the pendulum in question, suspended from C, the upper extremity of the vertical axis CD, and let the ball or body E, by revolving about the said asis, describe the circle BE AH, the plane of which is parallel to the horizon ; it is proposeil to assign the time of description, or the time in which the body S performs a revolution about the axis CD, at the distance BD. Conceive the axis CD to denote the weight *( of the revolving body, or its force in the di- rection of gravity; then, by the Compo- sition and Resolution of Forces, CB will denote the force or tension of the string or wire that retains the revolving body in the direction CB, and ED the force tending to the centre of the plane of revolution at D. But, by the general laws of motion and forces previously laid down, if the time be given, the space described will be directly proportional to the force ; bnt, by the laws of gravity, the space fallen perpendicularly from rest, in one second of time, is ^ = IQ^ feet ; consequently we have CD : BD : : 1^12 = ^' -, the space described towards D by the force in BD in one second. Consequently, by the laws of centripetal forces, the periodic time, or the time of t he bod y revolving in the circle BEAH, is expressed by the term jt^/tL^, where « = 3-1416, the circum- ference of a circle whose diameter is unity ; or putting t to denote the time, and expressing the height CD in feet, we get ( — 6-2832 ■J . ■■ , or, by reducing the expression to its simplest form, it becomes t = O-SlflSG-v/CD, where CD must be estimated in inches, and t in seconds. Here we have obtained an expression of great simplicity, and the practical rule for reducing it may be expressed in words as follows : Rule. — Multiply the square root of the height, or the distance between the point of suspension and the centre of the plane of revo- lution, in inches, by the constant fraction 0'31986, and the product will be the time of revolution in seconds. In what time will a conical pendulum revolve about its vertical axis, supposing the distance between the point of suspension and the centre of the plane of revolution to be 39-1393 inches, which is the length of a simple pendulum tiiat vibrates seconds in latitude 51° 30' ? The square root of 39-1393 is 6-2561 ; consequently, by the rule, hv Google 18b THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. we liave, 6'2561 x 0-31986 = 2-0011 seconds for the time of revo- lution sought. It consequently revolves 30 times in a minute, as it ought to do by the theory of the simple pendulum. By reversing the process, the height of the cone, or the distance between the point of suspension and the centre of the plane of revo- lution, corresponding to any given time, can easily he ascertained ; for we have only to divide the number of seconds in the given time by the constant decimal 0-31986, and the square of the quotient will be the required height in inches, ' Thus, suppose it were re- quired to find the height of a conical pendulum that would revolve 30 times in a minute. Here tJie time of revolution is 2 seconds for 60 H- 30 = 2; therefore, by division, it is 2 h- 0-31986 = 6-2527, which, being squared, gives 6-2527 = 39-0961 inches, or the )ength of a simple pendulum that vibrates seconds very nearly. In all coDical pendulums the times of revolution, or the periodic times, are proportional to the square roots of the heights of the cones. This is manifest, for in the foregoing equation of the periodic time the numbers 6-2832 and 386, or 12 X 32i, are constant quantities, eon- ■ sequently * varies as ^/CD. If the heights of the cones, or the distances between the points of suspension and the centres of the planes of revolution, he the same, the periodic times, or the times of revolution, will be the same, whatever may be the radii of the circles described by the re- volving bodies. This will be clearly understood by c the subjoined diagram, where all the pendulums Ca, C5, Ce, Cd, and Ce, having the common axis CD, will revolve in the same time ; and hv Google TMB STSAM ENGISE. 187 if they are all in the same vertical plane when first put in motion, they will continue to revolve in that plane, whatever be the velocity, so long as the common axis or height of the cone. remains the same. This will become manifest, if we conceive an inflexible bar or rod of iron to pass through the centres of all the balls as well as the common axis, for then the bar and the several balls must all revolve in the same time ; but if any one of them should be allowed to rise higher, its velocity would be increased ; and if it descends, the ve- locity will be decreased. Half the periodic time of a conical pendulum is equal to the time of vibration of a simple pendulum, the length of which is equal to the axis or height of the cone ; that is, the simple pendu- lum makes two oscillations or vibrations from side to side, or it arrives at the same point from which it departed, in the same time that the conical pendulum revolves about its axis. The space descended by a falling body in the time of one revolution of the conical pendulum is equal to 3-1416' maltipliod by twice the height or axis of the cone. The periodic time, or the time of one revo- lution is equal to the product of 3'1416 */ 2 multiplied by the time of falling through the height of the cone. The weight of a conical pendulum, when revolving in the circumference of a circle, bears the same proportion to the centrifugal force, or its tendency to fly off in a straight line, as the axis or height of the cone bears to the radius of the plane of revolution ; consequently, when the height of the cone is equal to the radius of its base, the centripetal or centrifugal force is equal to the power of gravity. These are the principles on which the action of the conical pen- dulum depends ; but as we shall hereafter have occasion to con- sider it more at large, we need not say more respecting it in this place. Before dismissing the subject, however, it may he proper to put the reader in possession of the rules for calculating the posi- tion of the centre of oscillation in vibrating bodies, in a few cases where it has been determined, these being the cases that are of the moat frequent occurrence in practice. The centre of oscillation in a vibrating body is that point in the line of suspension, in which, if all the matter of the system were collected, any force applied there would generate the same angular motion in a given time as the same force applied at the centre of gravity. The centres of oscillation for several figures of very fre- quent use, suspended from their vertices and vibrating flatwise, are as follow : — In a right lino, or parallelogram, or a cylinder of very small diameter, the centre of oscillation is at two-thirds of the length from the point of suspension. In an isosceles triangle the centre of oscillation is at three-fourths of the altitude. In a circle it is five-fourths of the radius. In the common parabola it is five-sevenths of its altitude. In a parabola of any order it is ' S n -4- 1 ^ ^ altitude, where n denotes the order of the figure. hv Google 188 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. In bodies vibrating laterally, or in their own plane, the centres of oscillation are situated as follows ; namely, in a circle the centre of oscillation ia at three-fourths of the diameter ; in a rectangle, suspended at one of its angles, it is at two-thirds of the diagonal ; in a parabola, suspended by the vertex, it is five-sevenths of tho axis, increased by one-third of the parameter ; in a parabola, sus- pended by the middle of its base, it is four-sevenths of the axis, increased by half the parameter ; in the sector of a circle it ia three times the arc of tho sector multiplied by the radius, and divided by four times the chord ; in a right cone it is four-fifths of the axis or height, increased by the quotient that arises when the square of the radius of the base is divided by five times the height ; in a globe or sphere it is the radius of the sphere, plus the length of the thread by which it is suspended, plus the quotient that arises when twice the square of the radius is divided by five times the sum of the radius and the length of the suspending thread. In all these cases the distance is estimated from tho point of suspension, and since the centres of oscillation and percussion are in one and the same point, whatever has been said of the one is equally true of tho other. THE TEMPERATURE AND ELASTIC FOHCB OP BTEAir, In estimating the mechanical action of steam, tho intensity of its elastic force must be referred to somo known standard measure, such as the pressure which it exerts against a square inch of the surface that contains it, usually reckoned by so many pounds avoirdupois upon the square inch. The intensity of the elastic force is also estimated by the inches in height of a vertical column of mercury, whose weight is equal to the pressure exerted by the steam on a surface equal to the base of the mercurial column. It may also be estimated by the height of a vertical column of water measured in feet ; or generally, the elastic force of any fiuid may be compared with that of atmospheric air when in its usual state of temperature and density ; this is equal to a column of mercury 30 inches or 2| feet in height. When the temperature of steam is increased, respect being had to its density, the elastic force, or the effort to separate the parts of the containing vessel and occupy a larger space, is also increased ; and when the temperature is diminished, a corresponding and pro- portionate diminution takes place in the intensity of the emanci- pating elFort or elastic power. It consequently follows that there must be some law or principle connecting the temperature of steam with its elastic force ; and an intimate acquaintance with this law, in so far as it is known, must be of the greatest importance in all our researches respecting the theory and the mechanical operations of the steam engine. To find a theorem, hy means of whieh it may he ascertained when a general law exists, and to determine what that law is, in eases where it is known to obtain. — Suppose, for example, that it is required to assign the nature of the law that subsists between the hv Google THE STEAM ENGINE. 189 temperature of steam and its elastic force, on the supposition that the elasticity is proportional to some power of the temperature, and unaffected by any other constant or co-officient, except the exponent by which the law is indicated. Let E and e be any two values of the elasticity, and T, (, the corresponding temperatures deducted from observation. It is proposed to ascertain the powers of T and i, to which E and e are respectively proportional. Let n denote the index or exponent of the required power ; then by the conditions of the problem admitting that a law exists, wo get, T° ; i" : : E : e ; but by the principles of proportion, it is — = — ; and if this be expressed logarithmically, it is n X log. ^ := log. — , and by reducing the equation in respect of n, it finally becomes _ log. 6 — log. E " ^T^. ( - log. r The theorem that we have here obtained is in its form sufH- ciently simple for practical application ; it is of frequent occur- rence in physical science, but especially so in inquiries respecting the motion of bodies moving in air and other resisting media ; and it IB even applicable to the determination of the planetary motions themselves. The process indicated by it in the case that we have chosen, is pimply, To divide the difference of the logarithms of the elasticities by the difference of the logarithms of the corresponding temperatures, and the quotient will express that power of the tempe- rature to which the elasticity is proportional. Take as an example the following data : — In two experiments it was found that when the temperature of steam was 250-3 and 843-6 degrees of Fahrenheit's scale, the corresponding elastic forces were 59-6 and 238-4 inches of the mercurial column respec- tively. From these data it is required to determine the law which connects the temperature with the elastic force on the supposition that a law does actually exist under the specified conditions. The process by the rule is as follows : Greater temperature, 343-6 log. 2-5352941 Lesser temperature, 250-3 log. 2-3084608 Remainder = 0-1 368333 Greater elastic force, 238-4 log. 2-37T3063 Lesser elastic force, 59-6 log. l-"75g463 Remainder =0^60^0600 Let the second of these remainders be divided by the first, as dii'ccted in the rule, and we get n = 6020600 -^ 1368333 = 4-3998, the exponent sought. Consequently, by taking the nearest unit, for the sake of simplicity, we shall have, according to this result, the following analogy, viz. : T":t^ ■>::£:£; hv Google 190 THE PRACnCAL MODEL CALCrLATOR. that is, the elasticities are proportional to the 4'4 power of the temperatures very nearly. Kow this law is rigorously correct, as applied to the particular cases that furnished it ; for if the two temperatures ant! one elas- ticity he given, the other elasticity will be found as indicated by the above analogy ; or if the two elasticities and one temperature be given, the other temperature will be found by a similar process. It by no means follows, however, that the principle is general, nor could we venture to affirm that the exponent here obtained will accurately represent the result of any other experiments than those from which it is deduced, whether the temperature be higher or lower than that of boiling water ; but this we learn from it, that the index which represents the law of elasticity is of a very high order, and that the general equation, whatever its form may be, must involve other conditions than those which we have assumed io the foregoing investigation. The theorem, however, is valuable to practical men, not only aa being applicable to numerous other branches of mechanical inquiry, but as leading directly to the methods by which some of the best rules have been obtained for calculating the eiasticity of steam, when in contact with the liquid from which it is generated. We now proceed to apply our formula to the determination of a general law, or such as will nearly represent the cSaaa of experi- ments on which it rests ; and for this purpose we must first assign the limits, and then inquire under what conditions the limitations take place, for by these limitations we mnst in a great measure be guided in determining the ultimate form of the equation which represents the law of elasticity. The limits of elasticity will be readily assigned from the follow- ing considerations, viz. : In the first place, it is obvious that steam cannot exist when the cohesive attraction of the particles is of greater intensity than the repulsive energy of the caloric or matter of heat interposed between them ; for in this case, the change from an elastic fluid to a solid may take place without passing through the intermediate stage of liquidity ; hence we infer that there must be a temperature at which the elastic force is nothing, and this temperature, whatever may be its value, corresponds to the lower limit of elasticity. The higher limit will be discovered by similar considerations, for it must take place when the density of steam is the same as that of water, which therefore depends on the modulus of elaeticity of water. The modulus of elasticity of any substance is the measure of its elastic force ; that of water at 60° of tempe- rature is 22,100 atmospheres. Thus, for instance, suppose a given quantity of water to be confined in a close vessel which it exactly fills, and let it be exposed to a high degree of temperature, then it is obvious that in this state no steam would be produced, and the force which is exerted to separate the parts of the vessel is simply the expansive force of compressed water ; we therefore have tlie following proportion. As the expanded volume of water is to the hv Google THE STEAM ENGINE. 191 quantity of e'^pin^mn, =«o in the tnodulus cf ela^ticitj of water to the elaitic It ice of ^team of the sime density as watei Having therefore assjgne I the limit'* beyond whn,h the elastic force of =!team cmnot reach, we shall now proceed to ^pply the principle of our formula to the determination of the general law which connect'' the temperature with the el istic force , and for this purpose, m addition to the notation which wo htve already laid down, kt c denote some constant quantity that a&ects the cl isticity, and d the temperature at which the elaaticitj vanishes , then since this temperature must be applied suhtractively, we h^l e from the foregoing principle c E = (T — i)', and c e = (( — *)" From either of these e ]Uations, therefore the constant quantity e can be determined m terms of the rest when they are known ; thus we have c = ^ — = — i-, and c = i L, and by comparing these two independent values of c, the value of n becomes known ; for ^^ — = — '— = i— — i-, and consequently n = log - e - log.

' ■ ■ ■ ^ '' In this equation the value of the symbol 8 is unknown ; in order therefore to determine it, we must have another independent expression for the value of n ; and in order to this, iet the ciaati- cities E and e become E' and e' respectively; while the corre- sponding temperatures T and t assume the values T' and (' ; then by a similar process to the above, we get * — •' = ^ — ^_J, and J°SiJ (B). log. {f - 8} - log. (T' - i] Let the equations (A) and (B) be compared with each other, and we shall then have an expression involving only the unknown quantity 8, for it must be understood that the several temperatures with their corresponding elasticities are to be deduced from experi- ment ; and in consequence, the law that we derive from them must be strictly empirical ; thus we have log, e — log.

T = 212-0 Fahrenheit E = 29-8 inches of mercury. t = 250-3 e = 59-() T'= 293-4 E'= 119-2 ('=343-6 e'= 2.38-4 hv Google 192 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. Therefore, by substituting these numbers in equation (C), and making a few trials, we find that S = — 50°, and substituting this in either of the equations (A) or (B), we get n — 5'08 ; and finally, by substituting these values of 8 and n in either of the expressions for the constant quantity c, we get c = 64674730000, the 5'08 root of which is 134'27 very nearly ; hence we have 1 134'27 / • ■ ■ ■ ^ ^ Where the symbol F denotes generally the elastic force of the Steam in inches of mercury, and ( the corresponding temperature in degrees of rahrcnhcit's thermometer, the logarithm of ttie denominator of the fraction is 2-X279717, which may be used as a constant in calculating the elastic force corresponding to any given temperature. We have thus discovered a rule of a very simple form ; it errs in defect ; but this might have been remedied by assuming two points near one extremity of the range of experi- ment, and two points near the other extremity ; and by substi- tuting the observed numbers in equation (C), different constants and a more correct exponent would accordingly have been obtained. Mr, Southern has, by pursuing a method somewhat analogous to that which is here described, found his experiments to be very nearly represented by I 135-7«7 / But even here the formula errs in defect, for he has fonnd it necessary to correct it by adding the arbitrary decimal O'l; and thus modified, it b {y^}"-i <^'- Our own formula may also be corrected by the application of some arbitrary constant of greater magnitude ; but as our motive for tracing the steps of investigation in the foregoing case was to exemplify the method of determining the law of elasticity, our end is answered ; for we consider it a very unsatisfactory thing merely to be put in possession of a formula purporting to be applicable to some particular purpose, without at the same time being put in possession of the method by which that formula was obtained, and the principles on which it rests. Having thus exhibited the prin- ciples and the method of reduction, the reader will have greater confidence as regards the consistency of the processes that he may be called upon to perform. The operation implied by equation (E) may be expressed in words as follows : — RoLB, — To the given temperature in degrees of Fahrenheit's thermometer add 51-3 degrees and divide the sum by 135 -1 67 ; to the 5'13 poiver of the quotient add the constant fraction I'fr, and the sum will be the elastic force in inches of mercury. hv Google THE STEAM EHGINE. 193 The process here deserihed is that which is performed by the rules of common arithmetic ; but since the index is affected by a fraction, it is difficult to perform in that way : we must therefore have recourse to logarithms as the only means of avoiding the diffi- culty. The rule adapted to these numbers is as follows :— Rule eor Loqarithms. — To the given temperature in degrees of Fahrenheit's thermometer add 51'3 degrees; then, from the logarithm of the sum subtract 2'1327940 or the logarithm of 135-T67, the denominator of the fraction; multiply the remainder by the index 5'13, and to the natural number answering to the sum add the constant fraction j\; the sum will be the elastic force in inches of mercury. If the temperature of steam be 250-3 degrees as indicated by Fahrenheit's thermometer, what is the corresponding clastic force in inches of mercury ? By the rule it is 250-3 + 51-3 = 301-6 log. 2-4794313 constant den. = 135-767 log. 2-1327940 subtract remainder = 0-3466373 _ SI "5 inverted 17331865 346637 103991 natural number 60-013 log. 1-7782493 If this be increased by ^, we get 60-113 inches of mercury for the elastic force of steam at 250-3 degrees of Fahrenheit. By simply reversing the process or transposing equation (E), the temperature corresponding to any given elastic force can easily be found ; tlie transformed expression is as follows, viz. : * = 135-767 (F - 0-1)^ - 51-3 .... (F). Since, in consequence of the complicated index, the process of calculation cannot easily be performed by common arithmetic, it is needless to give a rule for reducing the equation in that way ; we shall therefore at once give the rule for performing the process hj logarithms. Rule. — From the given elastic force in inches of mercury, sub- tract the constant fraction 0-1 ; divide the logarithm of the remain- der by 5-13, and to the quotient add the logarithm 2-1327940 ; find the natural number answering to the sum of the logarithms, and from the number thus found subtract the constant 51-3, and the remainder will be the temperature sought.

By combining Dr. Dalton's experiments with the mean between those of the French Academy and the Franklin Institute, we obtain the following equations, the one being applicable for temperatures below 212 degrees, and the other tor temperatures above that point as far as 50 atmospheres. Thus, for low pressure steam, that is, for steam of less temperature than 212, it is and for steam above the temperature of 212, it is /=C- In consequence therefore of the high and imposing authority from which these formulas are deduced, we shall adopt them in all our subsequent calculations relative to the steam engine ; and in order' to render their application easy and familiar, we shall trans- late them into rules in words at length, and illustrate them by the resolution of appropriate numerical examples; and for the sake of a systematic arrangement, we thmk proper to branch the subject into a series of problems, as follows : The temperature of steam being given in degrees of Fahrenheit's thermometer, to find the corresponding elastic force in inches of mercury. — The problem, as here propounded, is resolved by one or other of the last two equations, and the process indicated by the arrangement is thus expressed : — Rule, — To the given temperature expressed in degrees of Fahrenheit's thermometer, add the constant temperature 175 ; find the logarithm answering to the sum, from which subtract the con- stant 2-587711 ; multiply the remainder by the index 7'71307, and the product will be the logarithm of the elastic force in atmospheres of 30 inches of mercury when the given temperature is less than 212 degrees.

It is sometimes convenient to express the results in inches of mercury, -without a previous determination in atmospheres, and for this purpose the rule is simply as follows : Rule. — Multiply the given temperature in degrees of Fahren- heit's thermometer by the constant coefficient 1-5542, and to the product add the constant number 271-985; then from the loga- rithm of the sum subtract the constant logarithm 2-587711, and multiply the remainder by the exponent 7-71307 ; the natural num- ber answering to the product, considered as a logarithm, will give the elastic force in inches of mercury. This answers to the case when the temperature is less than 212 degrees; but when it is above that point proceed as follows : Multiply the given temperature in degrees of Fahrenheit's ther- mometer by the constant coefficient 1-69856, and to the product add the constant number 205-526 ; then from the logarithm of the sum subtract the constant logarithm 2-522444, and multiply the re- mainder by the exponent 6-42; the natural number answering to the product considered as a logarithm, will give the elastic force in inches of mercury. Take, for example, the temperatures as assumed above, and the process, according to the rule, is as fol- lows: hv Google 187 X 1'5542 = 290-6354 Constant = 271-985 a dd Sum = 562-6204... log. 2-750216 Constant = 387 log. 2-5 87711 subtract 0162505 X 7-71307 = 1-2 And the natural number answering to this logarithm is 17-923 inches of mercury. By the preceding calculation the result ia 17-802; the slight difference arises from the introduction "of the decimal con- stants, which in consequence of not terminating at the proper place are taken to the nearest unit in the last figure, but the process is equally true notwithstanding. For the higher temperature, we get 250 X 1-69856 = 424-640 Constant = 20 5-526 add Sum = 630.166 log. 2-709456 Constant = 333 log. 2-522444 subtract 0-277011 X 6-42 = 1-778410 And the natural number answering to this logarithm is 60-036 inches of mercury, agreeing exactly with the result obtained as above. It is moreover sometimes convenient to express the force of the steam in pounds per square inch, without a previous determination in atmospheres or inches of mercury; and when the equations are modified for that purpose, they supply us with the following process, viz.: Multiply the given temperature by the constant coefiicient 1-41666, and to the product add the constant number 247-9155; then, from the logarithm of the sum subtract the constant logarithm 2-587711, and multiply the remainder by the index 7-71307 ; the natural number answering to the procluct will give the pressure in pounds per square inch, when the temperature is less than 212 de- grees ; but for all greater temperatures the process is as follows : Multiply the given temperature by the constant coefficient 1-5209, and to the product add the constant number 184-0289; then, from the logarithm of the sum subtract the constant logarithm 2-522444, and multiply the remainder by the exponent 6-42; the natural or common number answering to the product, will express the force of the eteam in pounds per square inch. If any of these results be multiplied by the decimal 0-7854, the product will be the corresponding pressure in pounds per circular inch. Taking, there- fore, the temperatures previously employed, the operation is as follows ; 187 X 1-41666 = 264-9155 Constant = 247-91 55 add Sura = 512.8310.log. 2-709974 Constant = 387 log. 2-587711 subtract 0-122263 X 7-71307 = 0-94265S hv Google 198 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR.

Again, for the higher temperature, it is 250 X 1-5209 = 380-2250 Constant = 184-0289 add Sum = 564-2539 log. 2-751475 Constant = 83-3 log. 2-522444 subtract 0-229031 X 6-42 = 1-470279 And the number answering to this logarithm is 29-568 lbs. per sc[uare inch, or 29568 x 0-7854 = 23-2226 lbs. per circular inch. We have now to reverse the process, and determine the tempera- ture corresponding to any given power of the steam, and for this purpose we must so transpose the formulas (P) and (Q), as to express the temperature in terms of the elastic force, combined with given constant numbers; but as it is probable that many of our readers would prefer to see the theorems from which the rules are deduced, we here subjoin them. Por the lower temperature, or that which does not exceed the temperature of boiling water, we get ( = 249/^^-175 .... (R). Where t denotes the temperature in degrees of Fahrenheit's ther- mometer, and /the elastic force in inches of mercury, less than 30 inches, or one atmosphere ; hut when the elastic force is greater than one atmosphere, the formula for the corresponding temperature is as follows : i = 196/*^- 121 ... . (S). In the construction of those formulas, we have, for the sake of simphcity, omitted the fractions that obtain in the coefficient of /; for since they are very small, the omission will not produce an error of any consequence ; indeed, no error will arise on this account, as we retain the correct logarithms, a circumstance that enables the computer to ascertain the true value of the coefficients whenever it is necessary so to do ; but in all cases of actual practice, the results derived from the integral coefficients will he quite sufficient. The rule supplied hy the equations (R) and (S) ia thus expressed : When the elastic force is less than the pressure of the atrflosphere, that is, less than 80 inches of the mercurial column, — Rule. — Divide the logarithm of the given elastic force in inches of mercury, by the constant index 7-71307, and to the quotient add the constant logarithm 2-396204; then from the common or natural number answering to the sum, svihtract the constant temperature 175 degrees, and the remainder will he the temperature sought in degrees of Fahrenheit's thermometer. But when the elastic force exceeds 30 inches, or one atmosphere, the following rule applies : hv Google THE STEAM ENGINE. 199 Divii^e the logarithm of the given elastic force in inches of mer- cury hy the constant index 6-42, and to the quotient add the con- stant logarithm 2'292363 : then, from the natural number answer- ing to the sum subtract the constant temperature 121 degrees, and the remainder will be the temperature sought. Similar rules might be constructed for determining the temperature, when the pressure in pounds per square inch is given ; but since this is a less useful case of the problem, we have thought proper to omit it. We there- fore proceed to exemplify the above rules, and for this purpose we shall suppose the pressure in the two cases to be equivalent to the weight of 19 and 60 inches of mercury respectively. The operations will therefore be as follows : Log. 19 -^ 7-71307 = 1-278754 -;- 7-71307 = 0-165791 Constant coefficient = 249 log. 2-896204 add Natural number = 364-75 log. 2-561994 Constant temperature = 175 subtract Required temperature = 189-75 degrees of Fahrenheit's scale. For the higher elastic force the operation is as follows ; Log. 60 -H 6-42 = 1-778151 h- 6-42 = 0-276969 Constant coefficient = 196 log. 2-292363 add Natural number = 370-97 log. 2-569332 Constant temperature = 121 subtract Required temperature = 249-97 degrees of Fahrenheit's scale. All the preceding results, as computed by our rules, agree as nearly with observation as can be desired : but they have all been obtained on the supposition that the steam is in contact i^-ith the liquid from which it is generated ; and in this case it is evident that the steam must always attain an elastic force corresponding to the temperature ; and in accordance to any increase of pressure, supposing the temperature to remain the same, a quantity of it corresponding to the degree of compression must simply be condensed into water, and in consequence will leave the diminished space occupied by steam of the original degree of tension ; or otherwise to express it, if the temperature and pressure invariably correspond with each other, it is impossible to increase the density and elas- ticity of the steam except by increasing the temperature at the same time ; and, contrariwise, the temperature cannot be increased with- out at the same time increasing the elasticity and density. This being admitted, it is obvious that under these circumstances the Steam must always maintain its maximum of pressure and density : but if it be separated from the liquid that produces it, and if its temperature in this ease bo increased, it will be found not to possess a higher degree of elasticity than a volume of atmospheric air simi- larly confined, and heated to the same temperature. Under this new condition, the state of maximum density and elasticity ceases ; for it is obvious that since no water is present, there cannot be any hv Google 200 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. more steam generated by an increase of temperature ; and conse- quently the force of the steam is only that which confines it to its original bulk, and is measured by the effort which it exerts to ex- pand itself. Our nest object, therefore, is to inquire what is the law of elasticity of steam under the conditions that we have here The specific gravity of steam, its density, and the volume which it occupies at difi'erent temperatures, have been determined by ex- periment with very great precision ; and it has also been ascertained that the expansion of vapour by means of heat is regulated by the same laws as the expansion of the other gases, viz, that all gases expand from unity to I'SYS in bulk by 180 degrees of temperature; and again, that steam obeys the law discovered by Boyle and Mari- otte, contracting in volume in proportion to the degree of pressure which it sustains. We have therefore to inquire what space a given quantity of water converted into steam will occupy at a given pres- sure ; and from thence we can ascertain the specific gravity, density, and volume at all other pressures. When a gas or vapour is submitted to a constant pressure, the quantity which it expands by a given rise of temperature is calcu- lated by the following theorem, , /(' + 4.')9\ ,™j " ="(f+45s) m where t and t' are the temperatures, and u, v' the corresponding volumes before and after expansion; hence this rule. Rule. — To each of the temperatures before and after expansion, add the constant experimental number 459 ; divide tho greater sum by the lesser, and multiply the quotient by the volume at tho lower temperature, and the product will give the expanded volume. If the volume of steam at the temperature of 212 degrees of Pah- renheit be 1711 times the bulk of the water that produces it, what will be its volume at the temperature of 250'8 degrees, supposing the pressure to be the same in both cases ? Here, by the rule, we, have 212 4- 459 = 671, and 250-3 + 459 = 709'3 ; consequently, by dividing the greater by the lesser, and multiplying by the given volume, we get 1^^ X 1711 = 1808-66 671 for the volume at the temperature of 250-3 degrees. Again, if the elastic force at the lower temperature and the cor- responding volume be given, the elastic force at the higher tem- perature can readily be found ; for it is simply as the volume the vapour occupies at the lower temperature is to the volume at the higher temperature, or what it would become by expansion, so is the elastic force given to that required. If the volume which steam occupies under any given pressure and temperature be given, the volume which it wil! occupy under any proposed pressure can readily be found by reversing the pre- ceding process, or by referring to chemical tables containing the hv Google THE STEAM ENQINE. 201 specific gravity of the gases compared witli air as unitj at the same pressure and temperature. Now, air at the mean state of the at- mosphere has a specific gravity of 1| aa compared with water at 1000 ; and the bullts are inversely as the specific gravities, accord- ing to the general laws of the properties of matter previously an- nounced ; hence it follows that air is 818 times the bulk of an equal weight of water, for 1000 -^ If = 818-18. But, by the experiments of Dr. Dalton, it has heen found that steam of the same pressure and temperature has a specific gravity of -GSS com- pared with air as unity ; consequently, we have only to divide the number 818'18 by '625, and the quotient will give the propor- tion of volume of the vapour to one of the liquid from which it is generated ; thus we get 818-18 -5- -625 = 1309 ; that ia, the volume of steam at 60 degrees of Fahrenheit, its force being 30 inches of mercury, is 1309 times the volume of an equal weight of water ; hence it follows, from equation {'X), that when the temperature in- s to t', the volume t /459 + t' \ ' = 1309 X (559^^60) = 2-524(459 + t'); and from this expression, the volume corresponding to any specified elastic force /, and temperature t', may easily he found ; for it ia inversely as the compressing force: that is, /:30: : 2-525(459 + t') : v' ; consequently, by working out the analogy, we get = ;[5:67(459J^). ,j,. f ^ '' By tliis theorem is found the volume of steam as compared with that of the water producing it, when under a pressure correspond- ing to the temperature.

When the temperature of steam is 250'3 degrees of Fahrenheit'a thermometer, what ia the volume, compared with that of water ?

Thus we have given the method of calculating the ehistie force of ateam when the temperature is given either in atmospheres or inches of mercury, and also in pounds or the square or circular inch : we have also reversed the process, and determined the tem- perature corresponding to any given elastic force. We have, moreover, shown how to find the volume corresponding to different temperatures, when the pressure is constant ; and, finally, ivo have calculated the volume, when under a pressure due to the elastic force. These are the chief subjects of calculation as regards the properties of steam ; and we earnestly advise our readers to render themselves familiar with the several operations. The calculations as regards the motion of steam in the parts of an engine to produce power, will be considered in another part of the present treatise. The equation (XJ), we may add, can be exhibited in a different form involving only the temperature and known quantities; for since the expressions (P) and (Q) represent the elastic force in terms of the temperature, according as it is under or above 212 degrees of Pahrenheit, we have only to substitute those values of the elastic force when reduced to inches of mercury, instead of the symbol/ in equation (U), and we obtain, when the temperature is less than 212 degrees, Vol.=75-67(tcm.+459)H-(-004016xtem.-f-702807)'"*" (V). and when tlie temperature exceeds 212 degrees, the expression be- comes Vol. =75-67(tem. -i-459)-H -OOolOl x tem. -f- ■617195f ^ (W.) These expressions are simple in their form, and easily reduced ; but, in pursuance of the plan we have adopted, it becomes necessary to express the manner of their reduction in words at length, as follows : Rule. — When the given temperature is under 212 degrees, mul- tiply the temperature in degrees of Fahrenheit's thermometer by the constant fraction -004016, and to the product add the constant increment '702807 ; multiply the logarithm of the sum by the in- dex 7'71307, and find the natural or common number answcriog to the product, which reserve for a divisor. To the temperature add the constant number 459, and multiply the sum by the coefncient 75'67 for a dividend ; divide the latter result by the former, and the quotient will express the volume of steam when that of water is unity. Again, when the given temperature is greater than 212 degrees, multiply it by the fraction 'OOSlOl, and to the product add the constant increment '617195 ; multiply the logarithm of the sum by the index 6-42, and reserve the natural number answering to the product for a divisor; find the dividend as directed above, which, being divided by the divisor, will give the volume of steam when that of the water is unity. How many cubic feet of steam will be supplied by one cubic foot hv Google THE STEAM ENGINE. 203 of water, under the respective temperatures of 187 aud 293-4 de- grees of Fahrenheit's thermometer ? Here, by the rule, we have 187x0-004016=0-750992 Constant incremeiit=0-702807 Sum =14537^ log. -1625043 X 7-71307=l-2534069 and the nUmher answering to this logarithm is 17-92284, the di- visor. But 187 -f 450 = 646, and 646 X 75-07 = 48882-82, the dividend; hence, hy division, we get 48882-82-7-17-92284 = 2727-4 cubic feet of steam from one cubic foot of water. Again, for the higher temperature, it is 293-4 X 0-005101 = 1-496633 Constant increment = 0-617195 Sum = 2-113828 log. 0-3250696x642=2-0869468; and the number answering to this logarithm is 122-165, the divisor. But 293-4 4- 459 = 752-4, and 752-4 x 75-67 = 56934-108, the dividend; therefore, by division, we get 56934-108 -^ 122-165 = 466-04 cubic feet of steam from one cubic foot of water. The preceding is a very simple process for calculating the volume which the steam of a cubic foot of water will occupy when under a pressure due to a given temperature and elastic force ; and since a knowledge of this particular is of the utmost importance in cal- culations connected with the steam engine, it is presumed that our readers will find it to their advantage to render themselves familiar with tlie method of obtaining it. The above example includes both cases of the problem, a circumstance which gives to the operation, considered as a whole, a somewhat formidable appearance : but it would be difficult to conceive a case in actual practice where the application of both the formulas will be required at one and the same time ; the entire process must therefore be considered as em- bracing only one of the cases above exemplified ; and conseciucntly it can be performed with the greatest facility by every person who is acquainted with the use of logarithms ; and those unacquainted with the application of logarithms ought to make themselves masters of that very simple mode of computation. Another thing which it is necessary sometimes to discover in reasoning on the properties of steam as referred to its action in a steam engine, is the weight of a cubic foot, or any other quantity of it, expressed in grains, corresponding to a given temperature and pressure. Now, it baa been ascertained by experiment, that when the temperature of steam is 60 degrees of Fahrenheit, and the pressure equal to 30 inches of mercury, the weight of a cubic foot in grains is 329-4; but the weight is directly proportional to the elastic force, for tlie elastic force is proportional to the density : consequently, if/ denote any other elastic force, and w the weight in grains corresponding thereto, then we have 30:/:: 329-4 : w = 10-98/ hv Google 204 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. the weight of a, cubic foot of vapour at the force/, and temperature 60 degrees of Fahrenheit.

The rule for their reduction when expressed in words at length, is as follows : Rule. — When the temperature is less than 212 degrees, multi- ply the given temperature, in degrees of Fahrenheit's thermometer, by the fraction 0-012324, and to the product add the constant in- crement 2'155611 ; then multiply the logarithm of the sum by the index 7*71307, and from the product subtract the logarithm of the temperature, increased by 459 ; the natural number answering to the remainder will be the weight of a cubic foot in grains. Again, when the temperature exceeds 212, multiply it by the fraction 0-01962, and to the product add the constant increment 2-37374; then multiply the logarithm of the sum by the index 6-42, and from the product subtract the logarithm of the temperature in- creased by 459 ; the natural number answering to the remainder will be the weight of a cubic foot in grains.

THE MOTION OP ELASTIC FLUIDS. The next subject that claims our attention is the Telocity with which elastic fluids or vapours move in pipes or confined passages. It is a well-known fact in the doctrine of pneumatics, that the mo- tion of free elastic fluids depends upon the temperature and pres- sure of the atmosphere ; and, consequently, when an elastic fluid is confined in a close vessel, it must he similarly circumstanced with regard to temperature and pressure as it would be in an at- mosphere competent to exert the same pressure upon it. The sim- plest and most convenient way of estimating the motion of an elastic fluid is to assign the height of a column of uniform density, capable of producing the same pressure as that which the fluid sustains in its state of confinement ; for under the pressure of such a column, the velocity into a perfect vacuum will bo the same as that acquired by a heavy body in falling through the height of the homogeneous column, a proper allowance being made for the contraction at the aperture or orifice through which the fluid flows. When a passage is opened between two vessels containing fluids of different densities, the fluid of greatest density rushes out of the vessel that contains it, into the one containing the rarer fluid, and the velocity of influx at the first instant of the motion is equal to that which a heavy body acquires in falling through a certain height, and that height is equal to the difference of two uniform columns of the fluid of greatest density, competent to produce the pressures under which tho fluids are originally confined ; and the velocity of motion at any other instant is proportional to the squai-e root of the difl"erence between the heights of the uniform columns producing the pressures at that instant. Hence we infer that the velocity of motion continually decreases,— the density of the fluids in the two vessels approaching nearer and nearer to an equality, and after a certain time an equilibrium obtains, and the velocity of motion ceases. It is abundantly conflrmed by observation and experiment, that oblique action produces very nearly the same efTcct in the motion of elastic fluids through apertures as it does in the case of water ; and it has moreover been ascertained that eddies take place under similar circumstances, and these eddies must of course have a ten- dency to retard the motion : it therefore becomes necessary, in all the calculations of practice, to make some allowance for the retard- ation that takes place in passing the orifice ; and this end is most hv Google 206 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCUIATOK. conveniently answered by modifying tho constant coefficient ac- cording to the nature of the aperture through which the motion is made. Numerous experimeota have been made to ascertain the effect of contraction in orifices of different forms and under dif- ferent conditions, and amongst those which have proved the most successful in this respect, we may mention the experiments of Du Buat and Eytelwein, the latter of whom has supplied us with a series of coefficients, which, although not exclusively applicable to the case of the steam engine, yet, on account of their extensive utility, we take the liberty to transcribe. They are as follow : — 1. For the velocity of motion that would re- sult from the direct unretarded action of the column of the fluid that produces it, we __^ have 3 V = s/57yA 2.

We have already stated that the best method of estimating tho motion of an elastic fluid, such as steam or the vapour of water, is to assign the height of a uniform column of that fluid capable of producing the pressure : the determination of this column is there- fore the leading step of the inquiry ; and since the elastic force of steam is usually reckoned in inches of mercury, 30 inches being hv Google THE STEAM ENGINE. 207 equal fo the pressure of the atmosphere, the subject presents but little difSculty ; for wo have already seen that the height of a co- lumn of water of the temperature of 60 degrees, balancing a column of 30 inches of mercury, is 34-023 feet ; the corresponding column of steam must therefore he as its relative hulk and elastic force ; hence we have 30 : 34-023 :fv:h = 1-lMlfv, where / is the elastic force of the steam in inches of mercury, v the correspond- ing volume or bulk when that of water is unity, and h the height of a uniform column of the fluid capable of producing the pressure due to the elastic force ; consequently, in the case of a direct un- retarded action, the velocity into a perfect vacuum, according to No. 1 of the preceding class of formulas, is V = 8-542 ^/f v ; but for the hest form of pipes, or a conical tube in form of the con- tracted vein, the velocity into a vacuum, according to No. 2, be- comes V = 8-307 '•/fv; and for pipes of the usual construction. No. 12 gives V = 6-922 v/V; No. 13 gives V = 5-804 v/^ and in the ease of a simple orifice in a thin plate, we get from No. 11 V = 5-322 ^fv. The consideration of all these equa- tions may occasionally ho required, but our researches will at pre- sent be limited to that arising from No, 12, as being the best adapted for general practice ; and for the purpose of shortening the investigation, we shall take no further notice of the case in which the temperature of the steam ia below 212 degrees of Fah- renheit ; for the expression which indicates the velocity into a va^ cuum being independent of the elastic force, a separate considera- tion for the two cases is here unnecessary. It has been shown in the equation marked (TJ), that the volume of steam which- is generated from an unit of water, is i; = 75-67 (temp. -|- 459) , _, . ^ , , ,,.,,,.-,. ^^ — ^ ; let this value oi v be substituted lor it in the equation V — 6-922 \/fv, and we obtain for the velocity into a vacuum for the usual form of steam passages, as follows, viz. : V = 60-2143 v/(temp. -f- 459). This is a very neat and simple expression, and the object de- termined by it is a very important one : it therefore merits the reader's utmost attention, especially if he is desirous of becoming familiar with the calculations in reference to the motioli of steam. The rule which the equation supplies, when expressed in words at length, is as follows : — Rule. — To the temperature of the steam, in degrees of Fahren- heit's thermometer, add the constant number or increment 459, and multiply the square root of the sum by 60-2143 ; the product will be the velocity with which the steam rushes into a vacuum in feet per second. With what velocity will steam of 293-4 degrees of Fahrenheit's thermometer rush into a vacuum when under a pressure due to the elastic force corresponding to the given temperature. hv Google aUo THE PRACTICAL MODEIi CALCOLATOE.

In cases where the forms are limited by the situation and conditions of construction, such corrections should be applied as the circum- stances of the case demand ; and the amount of these corrections must be estimated according to the nature of the obstructions them- selves. For each right-angled bend, the diminution of velocity is usually set down as being about one-tenth of its unobstructed value ; but whether this conclusion be correct or not, it is at least certain that the obstruction in the case of a right-angled bend is much greater than in that of a gradually curved one. It is a very com- mon thing, especially in steam vessels, for the main steam pipe to send off branches at right angles to each cylinder, and it is easy to see that a great diminution in the velocity of the steam must take place here. In the expansion valve chest a further obstruction must be met with, probably to the extent of reducing the velocity of the steam two-tenths of its whole amount. These proportional corrections are not to be taken as the results of experiments that have been performed for the purpose of deter- mining the effect of the above causes of retardation : we have no experiments of this sort on which reliance can be placed ; and, in consequence, such elements can only be inferred from a comparison of the principles that regulate the motion of other fluids under simi- lar circumstances : they will, however, greatly assist the engineer in arriving at an approximate estimate of the diminution that takes place in the velocity in passing any number of obstructions, when the precise nature of those obstructions can be ascertained. In the generality of practical cases, if the constant coefficient 60'2143 be reduced in the ratio of 650 to 430, the resulting constant 41'6868 may be employed without introducing an error of any consequence. OP THE ABCEHI OP SMOKE AND UEATED AIR IN CIIIMNEYS. The subject of chimney flues, with the ascent of smoke and heated air, is another case of the motion of elastic fluids, in which, by a change of temperature, an atmospheric column assumes a different density from another, where no such alteration of temperature oc- curs. The proper construction of chimneys is a matter of very great importance to the practical engineer, for in a close fireplace. hv Google THE STEAM ENGINE, 209 designed for the generation of steam, there must be a considerable draught to accomplish the intended purpose, and this depends upon the three following particulars, viz. : 1. The height of the chimney from the throat to the top. 2. The area of the transverse section. 3. The temperature at which the smoke and heated air are al- lowed to enter it. The formula for determining the power of the chimney may be investigated in the following manner : Put h = the height in feet from the place where the flue enters to the top of the chimney, h = the number of cubic feet of air of atmospheric density that the chimney must discharge per hour, a = the area of the aperture in square inches through which 6 cubic feet of air must pass when expanded by a change of temperature, V = the velocity of ascent in feet p nl t' = the temperature of the extern I a nd ( = the temperature of the air t b d 1 ged by the chimney. Now the force producing the motion n th manifestly the difference between the weight of a lum f th tmospheric air and another of the air discharged by th b mn y and when the temperature of the atmospheric air at 52 1 of Fahren- heit's thermometer, this difference will b \ t 1 by the term k L, . ^gQ -) ; the velocity of ascent will therefore be V = JGi^ h-l rr-zTTKa f feet per second, and the quantity of air discharged per second will therefore be, « J^* «^ P'+T^fl f' supposing that there is no contraction in the stream of air ; but it is found by experiment, that in all cases the contraction that takes place diminishes the quantity discharged, by about three-eighths of the whole ; consequently, the quantity discharged per hour in cu- bic feet becomes * = 125-69 .J|E3. This would be the quantity discharged, provided there were no increase of volume in consequence of the change of temperature ; but air expands from h to ■■■ , - , "^t-q- ■■ for t' ~ t degrees of tem- perature, as has been shown elsewhere ; consequently, by compa- rison, we have < + 469 ' - 125-69 fl b,Google 210 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. From this equation, therefore, any one of the quantities wticli it involves can be found, wlien the others are given : it however supposes that there is no other cause of diminution but th^ contrac- tion at the aperture ; but this can seldom if ever be the ease ; for eddies, loss of heat, obstructions, and change of direction in the chimney, wiU diminish the velocity, and consequently a larger area will be required to suffer the heated air to pass, A sufficient al- lowance for these causes of retardation will be made, if we change the coefficient 125'69 to 100 ; and in this case the equation for the area of section b a = h v'((' + 459)« -^ 100 (( + 459) ^/h (t' - t). And if we take the mean temperature of the air of the atmo- sphere at 52 degrees of Fahrenheit, and make an allowance of 16 degrees for the difference of density between atmospheric air and coal emoke, our equation will ultimately assume the form a = b -/((' -I- 459f -i- 51100 s/h (('-(- 16). It has been found by experiment that 200 cubic feet of air of at- mospheric density aro required for the complete combustion of one pound of coal, and the consumption of ten pounds of coal per hour is usually reckoned equivalent to one horao power : it therefore ap- pears that 2000 cubic feet of air per hour must pass through the fire for each horse power of the engine. This is a large allowance, bnt it is the safest plan to calculate in excess in the first instance ; for the chimney may afterwards be convenient, even if considerably larger than is necessary. The rule for reducing the equation is as follows : — Rule.—- Multiply the number of horse power of the engine by the I power of the temperature at which the air enters the chimney, increased by 459; then divide the product by 25-55 times the square root of the height of the chimney in feet,, multiplied by the difference of temperature, less 16 degrees, and the quotient will be the area of the chimney in square inches. Suppose the height of the chimney for a 40-horse engine to be 70 feet, what should be its area when the difference between the temperature at which the air enters the flue, and that of the atmosphere is 250 degrees ? Here, by the rule, wo have, 250 -|- 52 = 302, the temperature at which the air enters Constant increment = 459 [the flue.

In the above example the particulars are merely assumed ; but even that is suffi- cient to show the process of calculation, which is more immediately the object of the present inquiry. It is right, however, to add, that recent experiments have greatly shaken the doctrine that it is beneficial to make chimneys small at the top, though such is the way in which they are, nevertheless, still constructed, and our rules must have reference to the present practice. It appears, however, that it would be the best way to make chimneys expand as they ascend, after the manner of a trumpet, with its mouth turned down- wards: but these experiments require further confirmation. The method of calculation adopted above is founded on the prin- ciple of correcting the temperature for the difi'erenee between the specific gravity of atmospheric air and that of coal-smoke, the one being unity and the other 1-05 ; there is, however, another method, somewhat more elegant and legitimate, by employing the specific gravity of coal-smoke itself: the investigation is rather tedious and prolix, hut the resulting formula is by no means difficult ; and since both methods give the same result when properly calculated, we make no further apology for presenting our readers with another rule for obtaining the same object. The formula is as follows : 2757-5 \A(t'- 77-55) where a is the area of the transverse section of the chimney in square inches, h the quantity of atmospheric air required for com- bustion of the coal in cubic feet per hour, h the height of the chim- ney in feet, and (' the temperature at which the air enters the flue after passing through the fire. The rule for performing this pro- cess is thus expressed : Rule. — From the temperature at which the air enters the chim- ney, subtract the constant decrement 77'55 ; multiply the remainder by the height of the chimney in feet, divide unity by the product, and extract the square root of the quotient. To the temperature of the heated air, add the constant number 459 ; multiply the sum by the number of cubic feet required for combustion per hour, and divide the product by the number 2757-5 ; then multiply the quo- tient by the square root found as above, and the product will he the number of square inches in the transverse section of the chimney. hv Google 212 THE PEACTICAL MODEL CALODLATOB.

This appears to be a very small flue for the quantity of air that passes through it per hour; but it must be observed that we have assumed a great height for the shaft, which has the effect of cre- ating a very powerful draught, thereby drawing off the heated air with great rapidity. The advantage of a high flue is so very great, that the reader may be desirous of knowing to what height a chimney of a given base may be carried with safety, in cases where it is inconvenient to secure it with lateral stays ; and, as an approximate rule for this purpose is not difficult of investigation, we think proper to supply it here. When the chimney is equally wide throughout its whole height, the formula is = ; / I5tj * '\12000-JAw; but when the side of the base is double the size of the top, the equation becomes 8= A\ V12000-0-42 Aw; where 8 is the side of the base in feet, h the height, and m the weight of one cubic foot of the material. When the chimney stalk is not square, but longer on the one side than the other, s must be the least dimension. The proportion of solid wall to a given base, as sanctioned by experience, is about two-thirds of its area, conse- quently w ought to bo two-thirds of the weight of a cubic foot of brickwork. Now, a cubic foot of dried brickwork is, on an average, 114 lbs. ; consequently «> = 76 lbs. ; and if this be substituted in the foregoing equations, we get for a chimney of equal size through- out, -T.

These equations are too simple in their form to require elucidation from us; we therefore leave the reduction as an exercise to the reader, who it is presumed will find no difficulty in resolving the several cases that may arise in the course of his practice. 2ffR atW VD-(-2^K{L + H' is the expression given hy M.

These proportions, however, greatly vary in different cases ; and in some of the best marine engine boilers, where the area of fire-grate is restricted by the breadth of the ves- sel, and the impossibility of firing long furnaces effectually at sea, half a square foot of fire-grate per horse power is a very common proportion. Ten cubic feet of water in the boiler per horse power, and ten cubic feet of steam room per horse power, have been as- signed as the average proportion of these elements ; but the fact is, no general rule can be formed upon the subject, for the proportions which would be suitable for a wagon boiler would be inapplicable to a tubular boiler, whether marine or locomotive ; and good ex- amples will in such cases be found a safer guide than rules which must often give a false result. A capacity of three cubic feet per horse power is a common enough proportion of furnace-room, and it is a good plan to make the furnaces of a considerable width, as they can then be fired more effectually, and do not produce so much smoke as if they are made narrow. As regards the question of draft, there is a great difference of opinion among engineers upon the subject, some preferring a very slow draft and others a rapid one. It is obvious that the question of draft is virtually that of hv Google 214 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. the area of fire-grate, or of the quantity of fuel consumed upon it given area of grate surface, and the ireiglit of fuel burned on a foot of fire-grate per hour varies in diiferent cases in practice from 3J to 80 lbs. Upon the quickness of the draft again hingea the ques- tion of the proper thickness of the stratum of incandescent fuel upon the grate ; for if the draft be very strong, and the fire at the same time be thin, a great deal of uncombined oxygen will escape up through the fire, and a needless refrigeration of the contents of the flues Tvill be thereby occasioned ; whereas, if the fire be thick, and the draft he sluggish, much of the useful effect of the coal will be lost by the formation of carbonic oxide. The length of the cir- cuit made by the smoke varies in almost every boiler, and the same may be said of the area of the flue in its cross section, through ■which the smoke has to pass. As an average, about one-fifth of the area of fire-grate for the area of the flue behind the bridge, diminished to half that amount for the area of the chimney, has been given as a good proportion, but the examples which we have given, and the average flue area of the boilers which we shall describe, may be taken as a safer guide than any such loose state- ments. When the flue is too long, or its sectional area is insuffi- cient, the draft becomes insufficient to furnish the requisite quantity of steam ; whereas if the flue be too short or too large in its area, a large quantity of the heat escapes up the chimney, and a depo- sition of soot in the flues also takes place. This last fault is one of material consequence in the case of tubular boilers consuming bituminous coal, though indeed the evil might be remedied by block- ing some of the tubes up. The area of water-level is about 5 feet per horse power in land boilers. In many cases, however, it is much less ; but it is always desirable to make the area of the water- level as large as possible, as, when it is contracted, not only is the water-level subject to sudden and dangerous fluctuations, but water is almost sure to be carried into the cylinder with the steam, in consequence of the violent agitation of the water, caused by the ascent of a large volume of steam through a small superficies. It would be an improvement in boilers, we think, to place over each furnace an inverted vessel immerged in the water, which might catch the steam in its ascent, and deliver it quietly by a, pipe rising above the water-level. The water-level would thus be preserved from any inconvenient agitation, and the weight of water within the boiler would be diminished at the same time that the original depth of water over the furnaces was preserved. It would also be an improvement to make the sides of the furnaces of marine boilers sloping, instead of vertical, as is the common practice, for the steam could then ascend freely at the instant of its formation, instead of being entangled among the rivets and landings of the plates, and superinducing an overheating of the plates by preventing a free access of the water to the metal. We have, in the following table, collected a few of the principal results of experiments made on steam boilers. hv Google THE STEAM ENGINE. Taele i. — " »- 1- li B fl P { { li li !

The duties are recorded in the fifth line from the top, and the degree of expansion in the bottom line. It will be observed, that the order in which the different en- gines stand in respect of superiority of duty is the same as in re- spect of amount of expansion. The Holmbush engine baa a duty of 140,484,848 lbs. raised 1 foot by 1 cwt. of coals, and the steam acts expansively over '83 of the whole stroke; while the water- works' Cornish engine has only a duty of 105,664,118 lbs., and expands the steam over only -687 of the whole stroke. Again, comparing the second and last engines together, the Albion Mills engine has a duty of 25,756,752 lbs., and no expansive action. The water-works' engine, again, acts expansively over one-half of its stroke, and has an increased duty of 46,602,333 lbs. Other causes, of course, may influence these comparisons, especially the last, where one engine is a double-acting rotative engine, and the other a single-acting pumping one ; but there can be no doubt that the expansive action in the latter is the principal cause of its more economical performance. The heating surface per horse power allowed by some engineers is about 9 square feet in wagon boilers, reckoning the total sur- face as effective surface, if the boilers be of a considerable size ; but in the case of small boilers, the proportion is larger. The total hv Google THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR, III Mi?. lalJi mi" llslllis P"*i. I'S'S hv Google THS STEAM ENfllNE, 21T heating surface of a two horse power wagon boiler is, according to Fitzgerald's proportions, 30 square feet, or 15 ft. per horse power ; whereas, in the case of a 45 horse power boiler the total heating surface is 438 square feet, or 9-6 ft. per horse power. The capaeity of steam room is 8j cubic feet per horse power, in the two horse power boiler, and 5f cubic feet in the 20 horse power boiler ; and in the larger class of boilers, such as those suitable for 30 and 45 horse power engines, the capacity of the steam room does not fall below this amount, and indeed is nearer 6 than 5| cu- bic feet per horse power. The content of water is 18J cubic feet per horse power in the two horse power boiler, and 15 cubic feet per horse power in the 20 horse, power boiler. In marine boilers about the same proportions obtain in most particulars. The ori- ginal boilers of one or two large steamers were proportioned with about half a square foot of fire grate per horse power, and 10 square feet of flue and furnace surface, reckoning the total amount as effective ; but in the boilers of other vessels a somewhat smaller proportion of heating surface was adopted. In some cases we have found that, in their marine flue boilers, 9 square feet of flue and furnace surface are requisite to boil off a cubic foot of water per hour, which is the proportion that obtains in some land boilers ; hut inasmuch as in modern engines the nominal considera^ bly exceeds the actual power, they allow 11 square feet of heating surface per nominal horse power in their marine boilers, and they reckon, as effective heating surface, the tops of the flues, and the whole of the sides of the flues, but not the bottoms. They have been in the habit of allowing for the capacity of the steam space in marine boilers 16 times the content of the cylinder ; hut as there are two cylinders, this is equivalent to 8 times the content of both cylinders, which ia the proportion commonly followed in land en- gines, and which agrees very nearly with the proportion of between 5 and 6 cubic feet of steam room per horse power. Taking, for example, an engine with 23 inches diameter of cylinder and 4 feet strobe, which will be 18-4 horse power — the area of the cylinder will be 415*476 square inches, which, multiplied by 48, the number of inches in the stroke, will give 19942-848 for the capacity of the cylinder in cubic inches ; 8 times this is 159542-784 cubic inches, or 92-3 cubic feet ; 92-3 divided by 18-4 is rather more than 5 cu- bic feet per horse power. There ia less necessity, however, that the steam space should be large when the Sow of steam from the boiler is very uniform, as it will be where there are two engines at- tached to the boiler at right angles with one another, or where the engines work at a great speed, as in the case of locomotive engines. A nigh steam' chest too, by rendering boiling over into the steam pipes, or priming as it is called, more difficult, obviates the neces- sity for so large a steam space ; and the use of steam of a high pressure, worked expansively, has the same operation ; so that in modern marine boilers, of the tubular construction, where the whole of these modifying circumstances exist, there is no necessity for so hv Google 218 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. largo a proportion of Btcam room as 5 or 6 cubic feet per horse power, and about half that amount more nearly represents the general practice. Manj allow 0-64 of a Bquare foot per nomi- nal horse power of grate bars in their marine boilers, and a good effect arises from this proportion ; but sometimes so large an area of fire grate cannot be convenientlj got, and the proportion of half a square foot per horse power seems to answer very well in engines working with some expansion, and is now very widely adopted. With this allowance, there will be about 22 square feet of heating surface per square foot of fire grate ; and if the consump- tion of fuel be taken at 6 lbs. per nominal horse power per hour, there will be 12 lbs. of coal consumed per hour on each square foot of grate. The flues of all flue boilers diminish in their calorimeter as they approach the chimney ; some very satisfactory boilers have been made by allowing a proportion of 0-6 of a square foot of fire grate per nominal horse power, and making the sectional area of the flue at the largest part ^th of the area of fire grate, and the smallest part, where it enters the chimney, ^th of the area of the fire grate ; but in some of the boilers proportioned on this plan the maximum sectional area is only ,?j or ^, according to the purposes of the boiler. These proportions are retained whether the boiler is fine or tubular, and from 14 to 16 square feet of tube surface is al- lowed per nominal horse power ; but such boilers, although they may give abundance of steam, are generally, perhaps needlessly, bulky. We shall therefore conclude our remarks upon the subject by introducing a table of the comparative evaporative power of differ- ent kinds of coal, which will prove useful, by affording data for the comparison of experiments upon different boilers when different kinds of coal are used.

Iron boiler plate was found to increase in tenacity as its temperature was raised, un- til it reached a temperature of 550° above the fi'eeaing point, at which point its tenacity began to diminish.

Repeated piling and welding was found to increase the tenacity and closeness of the iron, but welding together different kinds of iron was found to give an unfavourable result; riveting plates was found to occasion a diminution in their strength, to the extent of about one-third. The accidental overheating of a boiler was found to reduce its strength from 65,000 lbs. to 45,000 lbs. per square inch. Taking into ac- count all these contingencies, it appears expedient to limit the ten- sile force upon boilers in actua.l use to about 3000 lbs. per square inch of iron. Copper follows a different law, and appears to diminish in strength by every addition of heat, reckoning from the freezing point. The square of the diminution of strength seems to keep pace with the cube of the temperature, as appears by tho following table : — Table showing the Diminution of Strength of Copper Boiler Plates by additions to the Temperature, the Cohesion at 32° being 32,800 U)s. per Square Ineh.

The best practice appears to bo to run the stays used for the water spaces in this situation, in a line soniewhat beneath the level of the bars, so that they may be shielded as much as possible from the fire, while those which are required above the level of the bars should be kept as nearly as possible towards the crown of the furnace, so as to be removed from the immediate contact of the fire. Screw bolts with a fine thread tapped into the plate, and with a thin head upon the one side, and a thin nut made of a piece of boiler plate on the other, appear to be the best description of stay that has yet been contrived. The Stays between the sides of the boiler shell, or the bottom of the boiler and the top, present little difficulty in their application, and the chief thing that is to be at- tended to is to take care that there be plenty of them ; but we may here remark that we think it an indispensable thing, when there is any high pressure of steam to be employed, that the furnace crown be stayed to the top of the boiler. This, it will be observed, is done in the boilers of the Tagus and Infernal ; and we know of no better E of staying than is afforded by those boilers. AREA OF STEAM Rule.— To the temperature of steam in the boiler add the con- stant increment 459 ; multiply the sum by 11025 ; and extract the square root of the product. Multiply the length of stroke by the number of strokes per minute ; divide the product by the square root just found ; and multiply the square root of the quotient by the diameter of the cylinder ; the product will be the diameter of the steam passages. hv Google THE STEAM ENOINE. 221 Let it be required to determine the diameter of the steam pas- sages in an engine of which the diameter of the cylinder is 48 iDchea, the length of stroke 4J feet, and the number of strokes per minute 26, supposing the temperature under which the steam is generated to be 250 degrees of Fahrenheit's thermometer. Here hy the rule we get s/JT025(250 + 459) = 2T95-84 ; the number of strokes ia 26, and the length of stroke 4 J feet ; hence itia 6 = '^\ 27i)5.84 = 0"20456(i = 0-20456 X 48 = 9'819 inches; so that the diameter of the steam passages is a little more than one- fifth of the diameter of the cylinder. The same rule will answer for high and low pressure engines, and also for the passages into the condenser. LOSS or FOHCE BY THE DECKEASE OF TEMPERATrEE IN THE STEAM PIPES. Rule. — From the temperature of the surface of the steam pipes subtract the temperature of the external air ; multiply the remain- der by the length of the pipes in feet, and again by the constant number or coefficient 1'68 ; then divide the product hy the diameter of the pipe in inches drawn into the velocity of the steam in feet per second, and the quotient will express the diminution of tem- perature in degrees of Fahrenheit's thermometer. Let the length of the steam pipe be 16 feet and its diameter 5 inches, and suppose the velocity of the steam to be about 95 feet per second, what will be the diminution of temperature, on the sup- position that the steam is at 250° and the external air at 60° of Fahrenheit ? Here, by the note to the above rule, the temperature of the sur- face of the steam pipe is 250 — 250 X 0-05 = 237-5 ; hence we get 1-68 X 16(237-5 — 60) -,r,r,AA j /// = -i—K— = 10-044 degrees. 5 X 95 H we examine the manner of the composition of the above equa- tion, it will be perceived that, since the diameter of the pipe and the velocity of motion enter as divisors, the loss of heat will be less as these factors are greater ; but, on the other hand, the loss of heat will be greater in proportion to the length of pipe and the temperature of the steam. Since the steam is reduced frpm a higher to a lower temperature during its passage through the steam pipes, it mnst be attended with a corresponding diminution in the elastic force; it therefore becomes necessary to ascertain to what extent the force is reduced, in consequence of the loss of heat that takes place in passing along the pipes. This is an inquiry of some importance to the manufacturers of steam engines, as it serves to guard them against a very common mistake into which they are liable to fall, especially in reference to steamboat engines, where it is usual to cause the pipe to pass round the cylinder, instead of carrying it in the shortest direction from the boiler, in order to de- crease the quantity of surface exposed to the cooling effect of the atmosphere. hv Google 222 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. Rule. — From the temperature of the surface of the steam pipo subtract the temperature of the external air ; multiply the remain- der by the length of the pipo in feet, aud again by the constant fractional coefficient 0'00168 ; divide the product by the diameter of the pipe in inches drawn into the velocity of steam in feet per second, and subtract the quotient from unity ; then multiply the difference thus obtained by the elastic force corresponding to the temperature of steam in the boiler, and the product will be tlio elastic force of the steam as reduced by cooling in passing through the pipes. Let the dimensions of the pipe, the temperature of the steam, and its velocity through the passages, be the same as in the pre- ceding example, Tihat wili be the (quantity of reduction in the clastic force occasioned by the effect of cooling in traversing the steam pipe? Since the elastic force of the steam in the boiler enters the equa- tion from which the above rule is deduced, it becomes necessary in the first place to calculate its value ; and tbis is to be done by a rule already given, ■which answers to the case in which the tempera- ture is greater than 212° ; thus we have 250 X 1-69856 = 424-640 Constant number = 205-526 add Sum = 630-166 log. 2-79945 Constant divisor = 3B3 log. 2-52^444 subtract 0-277011 X 6-42 = 1-778410, which is the logarithm of 60-036 inches of mercury. Again, we have 250 ~ 0-05 X 250 = 237-5 ; consequently, by multiplying as directed in the rule, we get 237-5 x 0-00168 x 16 = 6-384, which being divided by 95 X 5 = 475, gives 0-01344 ; and by taking this from unity and multiplying the remainder by the elastic force as calculated above, the value of the reduced clastic force becomes / = 60-036 (1 - 0-01344) = 59-229 inches of mercury. The^loss of force is therefore 60-036 - 59-229 = 0-807 inches of mercury, which amounts to ^';th part of the entire elastic force of the steam in the boiier as generated under the given temperature, being a quantity of sufficient importance to claim the attention of our engineers. FEED "WATER. The quantity of water required to supply the waste occasioned by evaporation from a boiler, or, as it is technically termed, the " feed water" required by a boiler working with any given pressure, is easily determinable. For, since the relative volumes of water and steam at any given pressure are known, it becomes necessary merely to restore the quantity of water by the feed pump equiva- hv Google THE STEAM ENOINB. Z)LA lout to that abstracted in the form of steam, Tfhich the known rela- tion of the density to the pressure of the steam renders of easy accomplishment. In practice, however, it is necessary that the feed pump should be able to supply a much larger quantity of water than what theory prescribes, as a great waste of water sometimes occurs from' leakage or priming, and it is necessary to provide against such contingencies. The feed pump is usually made of such dimensions as to be capable of supplying 3^ times the water that the boiler will evaporate, and in low pressure engines, where the cylinder ia double acting and the feed pump single acting, this proportion will he maintained by mating the pump a 240th of the capacity of the cylinder. In low pressure engines the pressure in the boiler may be taken at 5 lbs. above the pressure of the atmo- sphere, or 20 lbs. in all; and as high pressure steam is merely low pressure steam compressed into a smaller compass, the size of the feed pump relatively to the size of the cylinder must obviously vary in the direct proportion of the pressnre. If, then, the feed pump he l-240th of the capacity of the cylinder when the total pressure of the steam is 20 lbs., it must be l-120th of the capacity of the cylinder when the total pressure of the steam is 40 lbs., or 25 lbs, above the atmosphere. This law of variation is expressed by the fol- lowing rule, which gives the capacity of feed pump proper for all pressures : — Multiply the capacity of the cylinder in cubic inches by the total pressure of the steam in lbs. per square inch, or the pressure in lbs. per square inch on the safety valve, plus 15, and divide the product by 4800; the quotient is the capacity of the feed pump in cubic inches, when the feed pump is single acting and the engine double acting. If the feed pump be double acting, or the engine single acting, the capacity of the pump must be just one-half what is given by this rule. CONDENSING WATER. It was found that the most beneficial temperature of the hot well was 100 degrees. If, therefore, the temperature of the steam be 212°, and the latent Lcat 1000°, then 1212° may be taken to represent the heat contained in the steam, or 1112° if we deduct the temperature of the hot well. If the tempera- ture of the injection water be 50°, then 50 degrees of cold are available for the abstraction of heat, and as the total quantity of heat to be abstracted is that requisite to raise the quantity of water in the steam 1112 degrees, or 1112 times that quantity, one degree, it would raise one-fiftieth of this, or 22'24 times the quantity of water in the steam, 50 degrees. A cubic inch of water, therefore, raised into steam, will require 22*24 cubic inches of water at 50 degrees for its condensation, and will form therewith 23-2-4 cubic inches of hot water at 100 degrees. It has been a practice to allow about a wine pint (28'9 cubic inches) of injection water for every cubic inch of water evaporated from the boiler. The usual capacity for the cold water pump is ^'jth of the capacity of the cylinder, which allows some water to run to waste. As a maximum hv Google 224 THE PEACTICAL MODEL CALCUIATOE. effect is obtained when the temperature of the hot well is about 100°, it will not be advisable to reduce it below that temperature in practice. With the superior vacuum due to a temperature of 70° or 80° the admission of so much cold water into the condenser becomes necessary, — and which has afterwards to be pumped out in opposition to the pressure of the atmosphere, — so that the gain in the vacuum does not equal the loss of power occasioned by the additional Joad upon the pump, and there is, therefore, a clear loss by the reduction of the temperature below 100°, if such reduction be caused by the admission of an additional quantity of water. If the reduction of temperature, however, be caused by the use of colder water, there is a gain produced by it, though the gain will within certain limits be greater, if advantage be taken of the low- ness of the temperature to diminish the quantity of injection. SAFETY VALVES. Rule. — Add 459 to the temperature of the steam in degrees of Fahrenheit ; divide the sum by the product of the elastic force of the steam in inches of mercury, into its excess above the weight of the atmosphere in inches of mercury ; multiply the square root of the quotient by '0653 ; multiply this product by the number of cubic feet per hour of water evaporated, and this last product is the theoretical area of the orifice of the safety valve in square inches. 'i'o apply this to an example — which, however, it must be remem- bered, will give a result much too small for practice. Required the least area of a safety valve of a boiler suited for a 250 horse power engine, working with steam 6 lbs. more than the atmosphere on the square inch. In this case the total pressure is equal to 21 lbs. per square inch ; and as in round numbers one pound of pressure is equal to about two inches of mercury, it follows that / = 42 inches of mercury. It will be necessary to calculate t from formula (S) already given. The operation is as follows :— log. 42 ^ 6-42 = 1-623249 ~ 6-42 = 0-252842 constant co-efficient = 196 2 -292363 2-545205 natural number = 350*92 constant temperature = 121 t = 229-92 therefore J :f -J '459 -t-( /459 + /(/— 30)~"J 42 X 229-92 12 . 1-168; ■0653 X 1-168 X N = •075T N. b,Google .■043549; therefore J jf^zrin\ = ^ '042549 = -20628. TOE STEAM EXGINE. 225 "We liave stated in a former part of this work that a cubic foot of Tvater evaporated per hour is equivalent to one horse power; therefore in this case N = 250 and x = 18-925 sq. in. As another example. Required the proper area of the safety valve of a boiler suited to an engine of 500 horse power, when it is wished that the steam should never acquire an elastic force greater than 60 lbs. on the square inch above the atmosphere. In this case the whole elastic force of the steam is 75 lbs. ; and as 1 pound corresponds in round numbers to 2 inches of mercury, it follows that / = 150. It will be necessary to calculate the temperature corresponding to this force. The operation is as follows : — Log. 150 -^ 6-42 = 2-176091 -^ 6-42 = constant CO- efficient = 196 log. 2-2 natural number = 427-876 2-631318 constant temperature = 121 required temperature 306-876 degrees of Fahrenheit's scale 459 4- t 459 + 306-876 765-876 765-896 therefore j^ (^f _ 30) " 150(150 - 30) ~ 150 x 120 ~ 18000 459 +t Hence the required area = -0653 x -20628 X 500 =■ -01347 X 500 — 6-735 square inches. If the area of the safety valve of a boiler suited for an engine of 500 horse power be required, when It is wished the steam should never acquire a greater temperature than 300°, it will be necessary to calculate the elastic force corresponding to this temperature ; and by formula for this purpose, the required area = -0653 X -231 X 500 = -0151 X 500 — 7-55 square inches. It will be perceived from these examples that the greater the elasticity and the higher the corresponding temperature the less is the area of the safety valve. This is just as might have been expected, for then the steam can escape with increased velocity. We may repeat that the results we have arrived at are much less than those used in practice. For the sake of safety, the orifices of the safety valve are inten- tionally made much larger than what theory requires ; usually -^ of a square inch per horse power is the ordinary proportion allowed in the case of low pressure engines. THE SLIDE VALVE. The four following practical rules are applicable alike to short slide and long D valves. Rule I. — To find how much cover must be given on the steam side in order to cut the steam off at any given part of the stroke.— From the length of the stroke of the piston, subtract the length of that part of the stroke that is to be made before the steam is cut off. Divide the remainder by the length of the stroke of the hv Google 226 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOK. piston, and extract the square root of the quotient. Multiply the square root thus found by half the length of the stroke of the valve, and from the product take half the !ead, and the remainder will be the cover required. Rule II, — To find at what part of the stroke any given aviount of cover on the steam side will cut off the steam. — Add the cover on the steam side to the lead ; divide the sum by half the length of stroke of the valve. In a table of natural sines find the arc ■whose sine is equal to the quotient thus obtained. To this arc add 90° and from the sum of these two arcs subtract the arc whose cosine is equal to the cover on the steam side divided by half the stroke of the valve. Find the cosine of the remaining arc, add 1 to it, and multiply the sum by half the stroke of the piston, and tho product is the length of that part of the stroke that will be made by the piston before the steam is cut off. Rule lU.^To find how muck before the end of the strolce, the exhaustion of the steam in front of the piston will be cut off. — To the cover on the steam side add the lead, and divide the sum by half the length of the stroke of the valve. Find the arc whose sine is equal to the quotient, and add 90° to it. Divide the cover on the exhausting side by half the stroke of the valve, and find the arc whose cosine is equal to the quotient. Subtract this are from the one last obtained, and find the cosine of the remainder. Subtract this cosine from 2, and multiply the remainder by half the stroke of the piston. The product is the distance of the piston from tho end of its strobe when the exhaustion is cut off. Rule IV. — To find how far the piston is from the end of its stroke, when the steam that is propelling it iy expansion is allowed to escape to the condenser. — To the cover on the steam side add the lead, divide the sum by half the stroke of the valve, and find the arc whose sine is equal to the quotient. Find the arc whose cosine is equal to the cover on the exhausting side, divided by half the stroke of the valve. Add these two arcs together, and subtract 90°. Find the cosine of the residue, subtract it from 1, and mul- tiply the remainder by half the stroke of the piston. The product is the distance of the piston from the end of its stroke, when the steam that is propelling it is allowed to escape to the condenser. In using these rules, all the dimensions are to be taken in inches, and the answers will be found in inches also. From an examination of the formulas we have given on this subject, it will be perceived (supposing that there is no lead) that the part of the stroke where the steam is cut off, is determined by the proportion which the cover on the steam side bears to the length of the stroke of the valve : so that in al! cases where the cover bears the same proportion to the length of the stroke of the valve, the steam will be cut off at the same part of the stroke of the piston. In the first line, accordingly, of Table I., will be found eight different parts of the stroke of the piston designated ; and directly b,Google THE STEAM EKGINB. 227 below each, in the second line, is given the quantity of coyer requi- site to cause the steam to be cut off at that particular part of the stroke. The different sizes of the cover are given in the second line, in decimal parts of the length of the stroke of the valve ; so that, to get the quantity of cover corresponding to any of the given degrees of expansion, it is only neceaaary to take the decimal in the second line, which stands under the fraction in the first, that marks the degree of expansion, and multiply that decimal by the length you intend to make the stroke of the valve. Thus, suppose you have an engine in which you wish to have the steam cut off when the piston is a quarter of the length of its stroke from the end of it, look in the table, and you will find in the third column from the left, J. Directly under that, in the second line, you have the decimal '250. Suppose that you think 18 inches will be a con- venient length for the stroke of the valve, multiply the decimal ■250 by 18, which gives 4^. Hence we learn that with an 18 inch stroke for the valve, 4^ inches of cover on the steam side will cause the steam to be cut off when the piston has still a quarter of its stroke to perform. Half the stroke of the valve must always be at least equal to the cover on the steam side added to the breadth of the port. By the "breadth" of the port, we mean its dimension in the direction of the valve's motion ; in short, its perpendicular depth when the cylinder is upright. 'Jhe words "cover" and "lap" are synony- mous. Consequently, as the cover, in this case, must be 4^ inches, and as half the stroke of the valve is 9 inches, the breadth of the port cannot be moro than (9 — 4^ = 4^) 4| inches. If this breadth of port is not enough, we must increase the stroke of the valve ; by which means we shall get both the cover and the breadth of the port proportionally increased. Thus, if we make the length of valve stroke 20 inches, we shall have for the cover -250 x 20 = 5 inches, and for the breadth of the port 10 — 5 = 5 inches. Table I.

Suppose tbat, in the last example, the valve was to have J inch of lead, wo would subtract J inch from the 5 inches found for the cover by the table : that would leave 4| inches for the quantity of cover that the valve ought to have.

The first line of Table II, consists, as in Table I., of eight fractions, indicating the various parts of the stroke hv Google THE STEAM ENGTSE. 229 at whicli the steam may be cut off. The first column on the left hand consists of various numbers that represent the different lengths that may bo given to the stroke of the valve, diminishing, by half-inches, from 24 inches to 3 inches. Suppose that you wish the steam cut off at any of the eight parts of the stroke indicated in the first line of the table, (say at ^ from the end of the stroke,} you find J at the top of the sixth column from the left. Look for the proposed length of stroke of the valve (say 17 inches) in the first column on the left. From 17, in that column, run along the line towards the right, and in the sixth column, and directly under the I at the top, you will find 3'47, which is the cover required to cause the steam to be cut off at J from the end of the stroke, if the valve has no lead. If you wish to give it lead, (say J inch,) sub- tract the half of that, or | = -ISS inch from 3-47, and you will have S-47 — '125 = 3-345 inches, the quantity of cover that the valve should have. To find the greatest breadth that we can give to the port in this case, we have, as before, half the length of stroke, 8^— 3'34.'i=5'155 inches, which is the greatest breadth wo can give to the port with this length of stroke. It is scarcely necessary to observe that it is not at aH essential that the port should be so broad as this ; indeed, where great length of stroke in the valve is not inconvenient, it ia always an advantage to make it travel farther than is just neces- sary to make the port full open ; because, when it travels farther, both the exhausting and steam ports are more quickly opened, so as to allow greater freedom of motion to the Steam. The manner of using this table is so simple, that we need not trouble the reader with more examples. We pass on, therefore, to explain the use of Table III. Suppose that the piston of a steam engine is making its down- ward stroke, that the steam is entering the upper part of the cylin- der by the upper steam-port, and escaping from below the piston by the lower exJiaustJng-port; then, if (as is generally the case) the slide valve has some cover on the steam side, the upper port will be closed before the piston gets to the bottom of the stroke, and the steam above then acts expansively, while the communica- tion between the bottom of the cylinder and the condenser still continues open, to allow any vapour from the condensed water in the cylinder, or any leakage past the piston, to escape into the condenser ; but, before the piston gets to the bottom of the cylin- der, this passage to the condenser will also be cut off by the valve closing the lower port. Soon after the lower port is thus closed, the upper port will be opened towards the condenser, so as to allow the Steam that has been acting expansively to escape. Thus, be- fore the piston has completed its stroke, the propelling power is removed from behind it, and a resisting power is opposed before it, arising from the vapour in the cylinder, which has no longer any passage open to the condenser. It is evident, that if there is no cover on the exhausting side of the valve, the exhausting port before hv Google 2-30 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. the piston will te closed, and the one hehind it opened, at the same time ; but, if there is any cover on the exhausting siJe, the port before the piston will be closed before that behind it is opened ; and the interval between the closing of the one and the opening of the other will depend on the quantity of cover on the exhausting side of the valve. Again, the position of the piston in the cylin- der, when these ports are closed and opened respectively, will depend on the quantity of cover that the valve has on the steam side. If the cover is large enough to cut the steam off when the piston is yet a considerable distance from the end of its stroke, these ports will be closed and opened at a pro port ion ably early part of the stroke ; and when it is attempted to obtain great expansion by the slide-valve alone, without an expansion- valve, considerable loss of power is incurred from this cause. Table III. is intended to show the parts of the stroke where, un- der any given arrangement of slide valve, these ports close and open respectively, so that thereby the engineer may be able to estimate how much of the efficiency of the engine he loses, while he is trying to add to the power of the steam by increasing the expansion in this manner. In the table, there are eight double columns, and at the heads of these columns are eight fractions, as before, represent- ing so many different parts of the stroke at which the steam may be supposed to be cut off. In the left-hand single column in each double one, are four deci- mals, which represent the distance of the piston (in terms of the length of its stroke) from the end of its stroke when the exhausting- port before it is opened, corresponding with the degree of expansion indicated by the fraction at the top of the double column and tbe cover on the exhausting side opposite to these decimals respectively in the left-hand column. The right-hand single column in each double one contains also each four decimals, which show in the same way at what part of the stroke the exhausting- port behind the pis- ton is opened. A few examples will, perhaps, explain this best. Suppose we have an engine in which the slide valve is made to cut the steam off when the piston is l-3d from the end of its stroke, and that the cover on the exhausting side of the valve is l-8th of the whole length of its stroke. Let the stroke of tho piston be 6 feet, or 72 inches. We wish to know when the exhausting-port before the piston will be closed, and when tho ono behind it will be opened. At tho top of the left-hand double column, the given de- gree of expansion (l-3d) is marked, and in the extreme left column we have at the top the given amount of cover (l-8tb). Opposite the l-8th, in the first double column, we have -ITS and '033, which decimals, multiplied respectively by 72, the length of the stroke, will give the required positions of the piston : thus 72X'178=12'8 inches = distance of the piston from the end of the stroke when the exhausting-port iefore the piston is shut ; and 72 X -033 = 2-38 inches = distance of the piston from the end of its stroke when the exhausting-port behind it is opened. hv Google THE STEAM ENGINE. ^ 'I t ^ C'uvcr on the eshoostins siiio of the Tfilvu In parts of Uifl length oC its slrolie. i £ i * DiBtance of the piaton from the end of ite Et/oTiB, when the eihaueting-port before it ia ghat (in ports of the strolte).

To take another example. Let the strolte of the valve he 16 inches, the cover on the exhausting eido J inch, the cover on the steam side 3 J inches, the length of the stroke of the piston 60 inches. It is required to ascertain all the particulars of the working of this valve. The cover on the exhausting side is evidently -^ of the length of the valve stroke. Again, looking at 16 in the left-hand column of Table II., we find in the same horizontal line 3-26, or very nearly 3J under ^ at the head of the column, thus showing that the steam will he out ofi" at J from the end of the stroke. Again, under J at the head of the fifth double column from the left in Table III., and in a horizontal line with -^ in the left-hand column, we have ■053 and -033. Hence, -053 X 60 = 3-18 inches = distance of the piston from the end of its stroke when the exhausting-port before it ia shut, and '033 X 60 = 1'98 inches = distance of the piston from the end of its stroke when the exhausting- port behind it is opened. If in this valve the cover on the exhausting side were increased (say to 2 inches, or | of the stroke,) the effect would bo to make the port before the valve be shut sooner in the proportion of ■109 to "053, and the port behind it later in the proportion of ■OOS to '033 (see Table III.) Whereas, if the cover on the exhausting side were removed entirely, the port before the piston would be shut and that behind it opened at the same time, and {see bottom of fifth double column. Table III.) the distance of the piston from the end of its stroke at that time would be -043 X 60 = 2-58 inches. An inspection of Table III. shows us the effect of increasing the expansion by the slide-valve in augmenting the loss of power oeca- Bioned by the imperfect action of the eduction passages. Referring to the bottom line of the table, we see that the eduction passage before the piston is closed, and that behind it opened, {thus destroy- ing the whole moving power of the engine,) when the piston is ■092 from the end of its stroke, the steam being cut off at J from the end. Whereas, if the steam is only cut off at ^^ from the end of the stroke, the moving power is not withdrawn till only -Oil of the stroke remains uncompleted. It will also be observed that in- creasing the cover on the exhausting side has the effect of retaining the action of the steam longer heldnd the piston, but it at the same time causes the eduction-port hefore it to be closed sooner. A very cursory examination of the action of the slide valve is sufficient to show that the cover on the steam side should always be greater than on the exhausting side. If they are equal, the steam would be admitted on one side of the piston at the same time that it was allowed to escape from the other ; but universal experience has shown that when this is the case, a very considerable part of the power of the engine is destroyed by the resistance opposed to the piston, by the exhausting steam not getting away to the con- denser with sufficient rapidity. Hence we see the necessity of the cover on the exhausting side being always less than the cover on the steam side ; and the difference should be the greater the higher the velocity of the piston is intended to be, because the quicker the hv Google THE STEAM EHGIKB. 2i!3 piston moves tlie passage for the waste steam requires to be the larger, so as to admit of its getting away to the condenser with as great rapidity as possible. In locomotive or other engines, where it 18 not wished to expand the steam in the cylinder at all, the slide valve is sometimes made with very little cover on the steam side : and in these circumstances, in order to get a sufficient difference between the cover on the steam and exhausting sides of the valve, it may be necessary not only to take away all the cover on the exhausting side, but to take off still more, so as to make both ex- hausting passages be in some degree open, when the valve is at the middle of its stroke. This, accordingly, is sometimes done in such circumstances as we have described ; hut, when there is even a small degree of cover on the steam side, this plan of taking more than all the cover off the exhausting side ought never to be resorted to, as it can serve no good purpose, and will materially increase an evil we have already explained, viz. the opening of the exhausting-port behind the piston before the stroke is nearly completed. The tables apply equally to the common short slide three-ported valves and to the long D valves. In fig, 1 is exhibited a common arrangement of the valves in lo- hv Google 234 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. comotive engines, and in figa. 2 aDd 3 is shown an an-angement for working valves by a shifting cam, by which the amount of ex- piinsion may be varied. This particular arrangement, however, is anti(juated, and is now but little used. The extent to which expansion can be carried beneficially by means of lap upon the valve is about one-third of the stroke ; that is, the valve may be made with so much lap, that the steam will be cut off when one-third of the stroke has been performed, leaving the residue to be accomplished by the agency of the expanding steam ; but if more lap be put on than answers to this amount of expansion, a very distorted action of the valve will be produced, which will impair the efficiency of the engine. If a furtlier amount of expansion than this is wanted, it may be accomplished by wire- drawing the steam, or by so contracting the steam passage, that tiie pressure within the cylinder must decline when the speed of the piston is accelerated, as it is about the middle of the stroke. Thus, for example, if the valve be so made as to shut off the steam by the time two-thirds of the stroke have been performed, and the steam be at the same time throttled in the steam pipe, the full pressure of the steam within the cylinder cannot be maintained ex- cept near the beginning of the stroke where the piston travels slowly ; for as the speed of the piston increases, the pressure neces- sarily subsides, until the piston approaches the other end of the cylinder, where the pressure would rise again but that the operation of the lap on the valve by this time has had the effect of closing the communication between the cylinder and steam pipe, so as to prevent more steam from entering. By throttling the steam, there- fore, in the manner here indicated, the amount of expansion due to the lap may be doubled, so that an engine with lap enough upon the valve to cut off the steam at two-thirds of the stroke, may, by the aid of wire-drawing, be virtually rendered capable of cutting off the steam at one-third of the stroke. The usual manner of cut- ting off the steam, however, is by means of a sepai-ate valve, termed an expansion valve ; but such a device appears to be hardly neces- sary in many engines. In the Cornish engines, where the steam is cut off in some cases at one-twelfth of the stroke, a separate valve for the admission of steam, other than that which permits its es- cape, is of course indispensable ; but in common rotative engines, which may realize expansive efiicacy by throttling, a separate ex- pansive valve does not appear to be required. In all engines thero is a point beyond which expansion cannot be carried with advantage, as the resistance to be surmounted by the engine will then become equal to the impelling power ; but in engines working with a high pressure of steam that point is not so speedily attained. In high pressure, as contrasted with condensing engines, there is always the loss of the vacuum, which will generally amount to 12 or 13 lbs. on the square inch, and in high pressure engines there is a benefit arising from the use of a very high pressure over a pres- sure of a moderate account. In all high pressure engines, there is hv Google THE STEAM EKGINE. 235 a diminution in the power caused by the counteracting pi^ssure of the atmosphere on the educting side of the piston ; for the force of the piston in its descent would obviously be greater, if there was a vacuum beneath it ; and the counteracting pressure of the atmo- splieve is relatively less when the steam used is of a very high pressure. It is clear, that if we bring down the pressure of the steam in a high pressure engine to the pressure of the atmosphere, it will not exert any power at all, whatever quantity of steam may be expended, and if the pressure be brought nearly as low as that of the atmosphere, the engine will exert only a very small amount of power ; whereas, if a very high pressure be employed, the pres- sure of the atmosphere will become relatively as small in counter- acting the impelling pressure, as the attenuated vapour in the con- denser of a condensing engine is in resisting the lower pressure which is there employed. Setting aside loss from friction, and sup- posing the vacuum to be a perfect one, there would be no benefit arising from the use of steam of a high pressure in condensing en- gines, for the same weight of steam used without expansion, or with the same measure of expansion, would produce at every pres- sure the same amount of mechanical power. A piston with a square foot of area, and a stroke of three feet with a pressure of one atmosphere, would obviously lift the same weight through the same distance, as a cylinder with half a square foot of area, a stroke of three feet, and a pressure of two atmospheres. In the one case, we have three cubic feet of steam of the pressure of one atmosphere, and in the other case IJ cubic feet of the pressure of two atmo- spheres. But there is the same weight of steam, or the same quan- tity of heat and water in it, in both cases ; so that it appears a given weight of steam would, under such circumstances, produce a definite amount of power, without reference to the pressure. In the case of ordinary engines, however, these conditions do not exactly apply ; the vacuum is not a perfect one, and the pressure of the resisting vapour becomes relatively greater as the pressure of the steam is diminished ; the friction also becomes greater from the necessity of employing larger cylinders, so that even in the case of condensing engines, there is a benefit arising from the use of steam of a con- siderable pressure. Expansion cannot be carried beneficially to any great extent, unless the initial pressure be considerable; for if steam of a low pressure were used, the ultimate tension would be reduced to a point SO nearly approaching that of the vapour in the con- denser, that the difference would not suffice to overcome the friction of the piston ; and a loss of power would be occasioned by carrying expansion to such an extent. In some of the Cornish engines, the steam is cut off at one-twelfth of the stroke ; but there would be a loss arising from carrying the expansion so far, instead of a gain, unless the pressure of the steam were considerable. It is clear, that in the case of engines which carry expansion very far, a very perfect vacuum in the condenser is more important than it is in other cases. Sothiug can be easier than to compute the ultimate hv Google 236 TIIE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. pressure of expanded stcain, so as to see at what point expansion ceiises to be productive of benefit ; for as tlie pressure of expanded steam is inversely as the space occupied, the terminal pressure nhen the expansion is twelve times is just one-twelfth of wha,t it was at first, and so on, in all other projections. The total pressure should be taken as the initial pressure — not the pressure on the safety valve, but that pressure plus the pressure of the atmosphere. In high pressure engines, working at from 70 to 90 lbs. on the square inch, as in the case of locomotives, the efficiency of a given quantity of water raised into steam may be considered to be about the same as in condensing engines. If the pressure of steam in a high pressure engine be 120 lbs., or 125 lbs. above the atmosphere, then the resistance occasioned hy the atmosphere will cause a loss of |th of the power. If the pressure of the steam in a low pressure engine be 16 lbs, on the square inch, or 11 lbs. above the atmo- sphere, and the tension of the vapour in the condenser be equiva- lent to 4 inches of mercury, or 2 lbs. of pressure on the square inch, then the resistance occasioned by this rare vapour will also cause a loss of |th of the power. A high pressure engine, there- fore, with a pressure of 105 lbs. above the atmosphere, works with only the same loss from resistance to the piston, as a low pressure engine with a pressure of 1 lb. above the atmosphere, and with these proportions the power produced by a given weight of steam will be the same, whether the engine be high pressure or con- densing. SPOEEOIDAL CONDITION OF WATER IN BOILERS. Some of the more prominent causes of boiler explosions have been already enumerated ; but explosions have in some cases been attributed to the spheroidal condition of the water in the boiler, consequent upon the flues becoming red-hot from a deficiency of water, the accumulation of scale, or otherwise. The attachment of scale, from its imperfect conducting power, will cause the iron to be unduly heated ; and if the scale be accidentally detached, a partial explosion may occur in consequence. It is found, that a sudden disengagement of steam does not immediately follow the contact of water with the hot metal, for water thrown upon red- hot iron is not immediately converted into steam, but assumes the spheroidal form and rolls about in globules over the surface. These globules, however high the temperature of the metal may be on which they are placed, never rise above the temperature of 205°, and give off but very little steam ; but if the temperature of the metal be lowered, the water ceases to retain the spheroidal form, and comes into intimate contact with the metal, whereby a rapid disengagement of steam takes place. If water be poured into a very hot copper flask, the flask may be corked up, as there will be scarce any steam produced so long as the high temperature is maintained; but so soon as the temperature is sufl'ered to fall below 350" or 400°, the spheroidal condition being no longer maintainable, steam is generated with rapidity, and the cork will be projected from the hv Google MB STEAM ENOIKB. 237 mouth of t!ie flask with great force. In a hoiler, no doubt, where there is a considerable head of water, the repellant action of the spheroidal globules will be more cifcctuallj counteracted than in the small vessels employed in experimental researches. But it is doubtful whether in all boilers there may not be something of the spheroidal action perpetually in operation, and leading to efi"ects at present mysterious or inexplicable. One of the most singular phenomena attending the spheroidal condition is, that the vapour arising from a spheroid is of a far higher temperature than the spheroid itself. Thus, if a thermometer be held in the atmosphere of vapour which surrounds a spheroid of water, the mercury, instead of standing at 205°, as would be the case if it had been immersed in the spheroid, will rise to a point determinable by the temperature of the vessel in which the spheroid exists. In the case of a spheroid, for example, existing within a crucible raised to a temperature of 400°, the thermometer, if held in the vapour, will rise to that point ; and if the crucible be made red-hot, the thermometer will be burst, from the boiling point of mercury having been exceeded. A part of this effect may, indeed, be traced to direct radiation, yet it appears indisputable, from the experiments which have been made, that the vapour of a lii;[uid spheroid is much hotter than the spheroid itself. EXPANSION. At page 131 we have given a table of hyperbolic or Byrgcan logarithms, for the purpose of facilitating computations upon this subject. Let the pressure of the steam in the boiler be expressed by unity, and let x represent the space through which the piston has moved whilst urged by the expanding steam. The density will then be - - , and, assuming that the densities and elasticities are pro- portionate, will be the differential of the efficiency, and the efficiency itself will be the integral of this, or, in other words, the hyperbolic logarithm of the denominator ; wherefore the efficiency of the whole stroke will be 1 + log. (1 + ar). Supposing the pressure of the atmosphere to be 15 lbs., 15 + 35 = 50 lbs,, and if the steam bo cut off at i^th of the stroke, it will be expanded into four times its original volume ; so that at the ter- mination of the stroke, its pressure will be 50-^4=12-2 lbs., or 2-8 lbs. less than the atmospheric pressure. When the steam is cut off at one-fourth, it is evident that « = 3. In such ease the efficiency is _ 1 -f log. (1 + 3), or 1 + log. 4. The hyperbolic logarithm of 4 is 1-386294, ao that the efficiency of the steam becomes 2-386294 ; that is, by cutting off the steam at J, more than twice the effect is produced with the same consump- tion of fuel ; in other words, one-half of the fuel is saved. hv Google 238 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOE. This result may thus be expressed in words : — Divide the length of the stroke through which the steam expands by the length of stroke performed with the full pressure, which last portion call 1 ; the hyperbolic logarithm of the quotient is the increase of efficiency due to expansion. We introduce on the following page more de- tailed tables, to facilitate the computation of the power of an en- gine working expansively, or rather to supersede the necessity of entering into a computation at all in each particular case. The first column in each of the following tables contains the initial pressure of the steam in pounds, and the remaining columns contain the mean pressure of steam throughout the stroke, with the different degrees of expansion indicated at the top of the columns, and which express the portion of the stroke during which the steam acts expansively. Thus, for example, if steam be admitted to the cylinder at a pressure of 3 pounds per square inch, and be cut off within ^th of the end of the stroke, the mean pressure during the whole stroke will be 2-96 pounds per square inch. In like manner, if steam at the pressure of 3 pounds per square inch were cut off after the piston had gone through ^th of the stroke, leaving the steam to expand through the remaining |th, the mean pressure during the whole stroke would be 1'164 pounds per square inch. The friction of iron sliding upon brass, which has been oiled and then wiped dry, so that no film of oil is interposed, is about ^ of the pressure ; but in machines in actual operation, whore there is a film of oil between the rubbing surfaces, the fraction is only about one-third of this amount, or ^'jd of the weight. The tractive re- sistance of locomotives at low speeds, which is entirely made up of friction, is in some cases -jj^th of the weight ; but on the average about ^Jijth of the load, which nearly agrees with mj former state- ment. If the total friction bo jj^th of the load, and the rolling friction be niViith of the load, then the friction of attrition must be ^Jijth of the load ; and if the diameter of the wheels be 36 in., and the diameter of the axles be 3 in., which are common proportions, the friction of attrition must bo increased in the proportion of 36 to 3, or 12 times, to represent tho friction of the rubbing surface when moving with the velocity of the carriage, ^ths are about ^jth of the load, which does not differ much from the proportion of ^'^d, as previously stated. While this, however, is the average result, the friction is a good deal less in some cases. Engineers, in some experiments upon the friction, found tho friction to amount to less than ^th of the weight ; and in some experiments upon the friction of locomotive axles, it was found that by ample lubrication the friction might be made as little as ^th of the weight, and the traction, with the ordinary size of wheels, would in such a case be about sJoth of the weight. The function of lubricating substances is to prevent the rubbing surfaces from coming into contact, where- by abrasion would be produced, and unguents are effectual in this hv Google THE STEAM EXOINB. 239 EXPANDED STEAM. — MEAN PRESSURE AT DIrrEEEXT DENSITIES AND KATE OE EXPAKSIOS.

With oil, the friction appears to he a minimum when the pressure on the surface of a bearing is about 90 lbs. per square inch : the friction from too small a surface increases twice as rapidly as the friction from too large a surface ; added to which, the bear- ing, when the surface is too small, wears rapidly away. For all sorts of machinery, the oil of Patrick SarsSeld Devlan, of Heading, Pa., is the best. HORSE POWEK. A horse power is an amount of mechanical force capable of rais- ing 33,000 lbs. one foot high in a minute. 'Jhe average force ex- erted by the strongest horses, amounting to 33,000 lbs., raised one foot high in the minute, was adopted, and has since been retained. The efficacy of engines of a given size, however, has been so much increased, that the dimensions answerable to a horse power then, will raise much more than 33,000 lbs. one foot high in the minute now ; so that an actual horse power, and a nominal horse power are no longer convertible terras. In some engines every nominal horse power will raise 52,000 lbs. one foot high in the minute, in others 60,000 lbs., and in others 66,000 lbs. ; so that an actual and nominal horse power are no longer comparable quantities, — the one being a unit of dimension, and the other a unit of force. The ac- tual horse power of an engine is ascertained by an instrument called an indicator ; but the nominal power la ascertained by a reference to the dimensions of the cylinder, and may be computed by the following rule : — Multiply the square of the diameter of the cylin- der in inches by the velocity of the piston in feet per minute, and divide the product by 6,000 ; the quotient is the number of nominal horses power. In using this rule, however, it is necessary to adopt the speed of piston which varies with the length of the stroke. The speed of piston with a two feet stroke is, according to this system, 160 per minute ; with a 2 ft. 6 in. stroke, 170 ; 8 ft., 180 ; 3 ft., 6 in., 189 ; 4 ft., 200 ; 5 ft., 215 ; 6 ft., 228 ; 7 ft., 245 ; 8 ft., 256 ft. By ascertaining the ratio in which the velocity of the piston increases with the length of the stroke, the element of velocity may be cast out altogether ; and this for most purposes is the most con- venient method of procedure. To ascertain tho nominal power by this method, multiply the square of the diameter of the cylinder ia inches by the cube root of the stroke in feet, and divide the pro- duet by 47 ; the quotient is the number of nominal horses power of the engine. This rule supposes a uniform effective pressure upon the piston of 7 lbs. per square inch ; the effective pressure upon the piston of 4 horse power engines of some of the best makers has been estimated at 6'8 lbs. per square inch, and the pressure hv Google THE STEdM EKGINE. 241 increased slightly with the power, and became 6-94 lbs. per square inch in engines of 100 horse power ; but it appears to be more con- venient to take a. uniform pressure of 7 lbs. for all powers. Small engines, indeed, are somewhat less effective in proportion than large ones ; but the difference can be made np by slightly increasing the pressure in the boiler ; and small boilers will bear such an increase without inconvenience. Nominal power, it is clear, cannot be transformed into actual power, for the nominal horse power expresses the size of an engine, and the actual horse power the number of times 33,000 lbs. it will lift one foot high in a minute. To find the number of times 33,000 lbs. or 528 cubic feet of water, an engine will raise one foot high in a minute, — or> in other words, the actual power, — we first find the pressure in the cylinder by means of the indicator, from which we deduct a pound and a half of pressure for friction, the loss of power in working the air pump, &c. ; multiply the area of the piston in square inches by this residual pressure, and by the motion of the piston, in feet per minute, and divide by 33,000; the quotient is the actual number of horse power. The same result is attained by squaring the diameter of the cylinder, multiplying by the pressure per square inch, as shown by the indicator, less a pound and a half, and by the motion of the piston in feet, and dividing by 42,017. The quantity thus arrived at, will, in the case of nearly all modern engines, be very different from .that obtained by multiplying the square of the diameter of the cylinder by the cube root of the stroke, and dividing by 47, which expresses the nominal power ; and the actual and nominal power must hj no means be confounded, as they are totally different things. The duty of an engine is the work done in relation to the fuel consumed, and in ordinary mill or marine engines it can only be ascertained by the indicator, as the load upon such engines is variable, and cannot readily be deter- mined : but in the case of engines for pumping water, where the load is constant, the number of strokes performed by the engine represents the .duty ; and a mechanism to register the number of strokes made by the engine in a given time, is a sufficient test of the engine's performance. In high pressure engines the actual power is readily ascertained by the indicator, by the same process by which the actual power of low pressure engines is ascertained. The friction of a locomotive engine when unloaded, is found by experiment to be about 1 lb. per square inch on the surface of the pistons, and the additional friction caused by any additional resistance is estimated at about '14 of that resistance ; but it will be a sufficiently near approximation to the power consumed by friction in high pressure engines, if we make a deduction of a pound and a half from the pressure on that account, as in the case of low pressure engines. High pressure engines, it is true, have no air pump to work ; but the deduction of a pound and a half of pressure ia relatively a much smaller one where the pressure is high than where it does not much exceed the hv Google 242 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. pressure of the atmosphere. The rule, therefore, for the actual horse power of a high pressure engine will stand thus :— Square the diameter of the cylinder in inches, multiply by the pressure of the steam in the cylinder per square inch, less 1| Ihs,, and by the speed of the piston in feet per minute, and divide by 42,017 ; the fjuotient is the actual horse power. The norainal horse power of a high pressure engine has never been defined ; but it should obvi- ously hold the same relation to the actual power as that which obtains in the case of condensing, engines, so that an engine of a given nominal horse power may be capable of performing the same work, whether high pressure or condensing. This relation is main- tained in the following rule, which expresses the nominal horse power of high pressure engines : — Multiply the square of the diame- ter of the cylinder in inches hy the pressure on the piston in pounds per square inch, and by the speed of the piston in feet per minute, and divide the product by 120,000 ; the quotient is the power of the engine in nominal horses power. If the pressure upon the piston be 80 lbs. per square inch, the operation may be abbreviated by multiplying the square of the diameter of the cylinder by the speed of the piston, and dividing by 1,500, which will give the same result. This rule for nominal horse power, however, is not representative of the dimensions of the cylinder ; but a rule for the nominal horse power of high pressure engines which shall discard altogether the element of Yelocity, is easily constructed ; and, as different pressures are used in different engines, the pressure must become an element in the computation. The rule for the nominal power will therefore stand thus : — Multiply the square of the diameter of the cylinder in inches by the pressure on the piston in poimds per square inch, and the cube root of the stroke in feet, and divide the product by 940 ; the quotient is the power of the engine in nominal horse power, the engine working at the ordinary speed of 128 times the cube root of the stroke. A summary of the results arrived at by these rules is given in the following tables, which, for the convenience of reference, wc introduce. PAEALLEL MOTION.

Rule. — To find the depth of the main beam at the centre. — Divide the length in inches from the centre of motion to the point where the piston rod is attached, by the diameter of the cylinder in inches ; multiply the quotient by the maximum pressure in pounds per square inch of the steam in tho boiler ; divide the product by 202 for cast iron, and 236 for malleable iron : in either case, the cube root of the quotient multiplied by the diameter of the cylinder in inches gives the depth in inches of the beam at the centre of motion. To find the breadth at the centre. — Divide the depth in inches by 16 ; the qttotient is the breadth in inches. An engine beam is three times the diameter of the cylinder, from the centre to the point where the piston rod acts on it ; the force of the steam in the boiler when about to force open the safety valve is 10 lbs. per square inch. Required the depth and breadth when the beam is of cast iron. In this case m = 3, and P = 10, and therefore The breadth = — D = -03 D. lo It will be observed that our rule gives the least value to the depth. In actual practice, however, it is necessary to make allow- ance for accidents, or for faultiness in the materials. This may be done by making the depth greater than that determined by the rule ; or, perhaps more properly, by taking the pressure of the steam much greater than it can ever possibly be. As for the dimensions of tho other parts of the beam, it is obvious that they ought to diminish towards the extremities ; for the power of a beam to resist a cross strain varies inversely as its length. The dimensions may be determined from the formula/?' d^ = 6 W ?. To apply the formula to cranks, wo may assume the doptli at the shaft to be equal to n times the diameter of the shaft ; hence, if m X D he the diameter of the shaft, the depth of the crank will be »i X m xD. Substituting this in the formula /6d^ = 6 W^ and it becomes /5 X n^ x m' x D' = 6 W I. Now, as before, W = -7854 X P X D^, so that the formula becomes / x 5 X )t^ x m^ = 4-7124 X P X Z. The value of n is arbitrary. In practice it may be made equal to IJ or 1-5. Taking this value, then, for hv Google 250 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. cast iron, the formula, becomes 15300 x i x | x m' = 4-7124 x P X i, or t305 971= 6 = P i ; but if L denote tlie Jengtli of the crank in feet, the formula becomes 60^ n^ 6 = PL, and .'. 6 ^ P X L -7- 609 m^ 'Ihia formula may be put into the form of a rule, thus : — Rule. — To find the breadth at the shaft when the depth is equal to 1^ times the diameter of the shaft. — Divide the square of the diameter of the shaft in inches by the square of the diameter of the cylinder ; multiply the quotient by 609, and reserve the pro- duct for a divisor ; multiply the greatest elastic force of the steam in lbs. per square inch by the length of the crank in feet, and divide the product by the reserved divisor: the quotient is the breadth of the crank at the shaft. A crank shaft is ^ the diameter of the cylinder ; the greatest possible force of the steam in the boiler is 20 lbs, per square inch ; and the length of the shaft is S feet. Required the breadth of the crank at the shaft when its depth is equal to 1^ times the diameter of the shaft. In this case m = 1, so that the reserved divisor — tf- = 38 : again, elastic force of steam in lbs. per square inch = 20 lbs. ; 3 X 20 hence width of crank = — hq — = 1'6 inches nearly. Role. — To find the diameter of a revolving shaft. — Form a reserved divisor thus : multiply the number of revolutions which the shaft makes for each double stroke of the piston by the number 1222 for cast iron, and the number 1376 for malleable iron. Then divide the radius of the crank, or the radius of the wheel, by the diameter of the cylinder ; multiply the quotient by the greatest pressure of the steam in the boiler expressed in lbs. per square inch ; divide the product by the reserved divisor ; extract the cube root of the quotient, and multiply the result by the diameter of the cylinder in inches. The product is the diameter of the shaft in inches. STEE^fOTH Of E Rule. — To find the diameter of a rod exposed to a tensile force only. — Multiply the diameter of the piston in inches by the square root of the greatest elastic force of the steam in the boiler esti- mated in lbs. per square inch ; tho product, divided by 95, is the diameter of the rod in inches. Required the diameter of the transverse section of a piston rod in a single acting engine, when the diameter of the cylinder is 50 inches, and the greatest possible force of the steam in the boiler is 16 lbs. per square inch. Here, according to the formula, 50 200 <? = y^ ^/ 16 = Tj^ = 2-1 inches. hv Google THE STEAM ENGINE. 251 KuLE. — To find the strength of rods alternately extended and compressed, suck as the piston rods of double acting engines. — Mul- tiply the diameter of the piston in inches hj the square root of the maximum pressure of the etoam in lbs. per square inch ; divide the product by 47 for cast iron, 50 for malleable iron. This rule applies to the piston rods of double acting engines, parallel motion rods, air-pump and force-pump rods, and the liite. The rule may also be applied to determine the strength of connect- ing rods, by taking, instead of P, a number P', such that P' x sine of the greatest angle which the connecting rod makes with the direction = P. Supposing the greatest force of the steam in the boiler to be 16 lbs. per square inch, and the diameter of the cylinder 50 inches ; required the diameter of the piston rod, supposing the engine to be double acting. In this case for cast iron t? = _ \/ P = = 5 inches nearly ; 47 47 for malleable iron d = — >/ P = 4 inches. The pressure, however, is always taken in practice at more than 16 lbs. If the pressure be taken at 25 lbs., the diameter of a malle- able iron piston rod will be 5 inches, which is the usual proportion. Piston rods are never made of cast iron, but air-pump rods are sometimes made of brass, and the connecting rods of land engines are cast iron in most eases. FORMULAS FOB TDE STEENGTH OF VAKIOCS PARTS OF MARISE ENGINES. The following general rules give the dimensions proper for the parts of marine engines, and we shall recapitulate, with all possible brevity, the data upon which the denominations rest. Let pressure of the steam in boiler = p lbs. per square inch, Diameter of cylinder = D inches. Length of stroke = 2 R inches.. The vacuum below the piston is never complete, so that there always remains a vapour of Steam possessing a certain elasticity. We may suppose this vapour to be able to balance the weight of the piston. Hence the entire pressure on the square inch of piston in lbs. = p + pressure of atmosphere = 15 -^ ^. We shall substi- tute P for 15 -|- p. Hence Entire pressure on piston in lbs. = '7854 X (15 -|- y) X C = -7854 X P X D^ The dimensions of the paddle-shaft journal may be found from the following formulas, which are calculated so that the strain in ordinary working = | elastic force.

TUB BEVEEAL PARTS OF FURNACES AND BOILERS. Perhaps in none of the parts of a steam engine does the practice of engineers vary more than in those connected with furnaces and boilers. There are, no doubt, certain proportions for these, as well as for the others, which produce the maximum amount of useful effect for particular given purposes ; hut the determination of these proportions, from theoretical considerations, has hitherto been at- tended with insuperable difficulties, arising principally from our im- perfect knowledge of the laws of combustion of fuel, and of the laws according to which caloric is imparted to the water in the boiler. In giving, therefore, the following proportions for the difi'erent parts, we desire to have it understood that we do not affirm them to be the best, absolutely considered ; we give them only as the average practice of the best modern constructors. In most of the cases we have given the average value per nominal horse power. It is well known that the term horse power is a conventional unit for measuring the size of steam engines, just as a foot or a mile is hv Google THE STEAM ENGIXE. 255 a unit for the measurement of extension. Tlicre is this difFcrencc, however, in the two cases, that whereas the length of a foot is fixed (iefiaitively, and is known to every one, the dimensions proper to an engine horse power difi'er in the practice of every different maker : and the same kind of confusion is thereby introduced into engineering as if one person were to make his foot-rule eleven inches long, and another thirteen inches. It signifies very little what a horse power is defined to be ; but when onco defined, the measurement should be kept inviolable. The question now arises, what standard ought to be the accepted one. Por our present pur- pose, it is necessary to connect by a formula the three quantities, nominal horses poiverj length of stroke, and diameter of cylinder. With this intention, Let S = length of stroke in feet, d = diameter of cylinder in inches ; m, , . ., , 1^ X -^S ilien the nominal horse power = ■ ,,- — nearly. I, Area of Fire Q-raU. — The average practice is to give 'SS square feet for each nominal horse power. Hence the following rule: Rule 1. — To find the area of the fire grate. — Multiply the num- ber of horses power by -55 ; the product is the area of the fire grate in square feet. Required the total area of tbe fire grate for an engine of 400 horse power. Here total area of fire grate in square feet = 400 X •55 = 220. A rule may also be found for expressing the area of the fire grate in terms of the length of stroke and the diameter of the cylinder. Por this purpose we have, : -^g . , <?= X ^"S — .1. leet = — i,r- — leet. This formula expressed in words gives the following rule. Rule 2. — To find the area of fire grate. — Multiply the cube root of the length of stroke in feet by the square of the diameter in in- ches ; divide the product )iy 86 ; the quotient is the area of Cre grate in square feet. Required the total area of the fire grate for an engine whose stroke = 8 feet, and diameter of cylinder = 50 inches. Here, according to the rule, _ 50^ X ^8 2500 X 2 total area of fire grate m square feet = ■ ■ ■ „ . ■ — = - >, . — = -n^ = 5y nearly. In order to work this example by the first rule, wo find the nominal horse power of the engine wbose dimensions we have spe- cified is 104-3 ; hence, total area of fire grate in square feet = 1064 X -55 = 58-5. hv Google 256 TUB PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOE, Willi regard to these rules we may remark, not only that they are founded on practice, and therefore erapyrical, hut they are only applicable to large engines. When an engine is very aroall, it re- quires a niTich larger area of fire grate in proportion to its size than a larger one. This depends upon the necessity of having a certain amount of fire grate for the proper combustion of the coal. II. Length ^Furnace. — The length of the furnace differs con- siderably, even in the practice of the same engineer. Indeed, all the dimensions of the furnace depend to a certain extent npon the peculiarity of its position. From the difBculty of firing long fur- naces efficiently, it has been found more beneficial to restrict the length of the furnace to about six feet than to employ furnaces of greater length, III. Height of Furnaoe above Bars. — This dimension is variable, but it is a common practice to mate the height about two feet. rV. Capacity/ of Furnace Chamber above Bars. — The average per horse power may be taken at I-IT feet. Hence the following rule: Bole, — To find the capacity of furnace- chamber above bars. — Multiply the number of nominal horaes power by 1'17 ; the pro- duct is the capacity of furnace chambers above bars in cubic feet. v. Areas of Flues or Tubes in smallest part. — The average value of the area per horse power is 11'2 aq. in. Hence we have the fol- lowing rule : Rule. — To find the total area of the flues or tubes in smallest part. — Multiply the number of horse power by 11'2 ; the product is the total area in square inches of flues or tubes in smallest part. Required total area of flues or tubes for the boiler of a steam en- gine when the horse power = 400. For this example we have, according to the rule. Total area in square inches = 400 x 11-2 = 4480. We may also find a very convenient rule expressed in terras of the stroke and the diaraeter of cylinder. Thus, _ . , 11-2 X <f X -^S Total area of tubes or flues m square inches = ■ — ■ -,^- _<P_XJ^S - ■ — 4 ■ VI, Effective Seating Surface. — The effective heating surface of flue boilers is the whole of furnace surface above bars, the whole of tops of flues, half the sides of flues, and none of the bottoms ; hence the effective flue surface is about half the total flue surface. In tubular boilers, however, the whole of the tube surface is reckoned effective surface. EFFECTIVE HEATING SURFACE OF FLUB BOILERS. Rule 1. — To find the effective heating surfaee of marine flue boilers of large size. — Multiply the number of nominal horse power by 5 ; the product is the area of effective heating surface in Bi^uare feet. hv Google THE STEAM ENGINE. 257 Required the effective heating snrface of an engine of 400 nomi- nal horse power. In this case, according to the rule, effective heating surface in stjuaro feet = 400 x 5 = 2000. The effective heating surface may he expressed in terms of the length of stroke and the diameter of the cjlinder. Rule 2. — To find the total effective heating surface of marine flue boilers. — Multiply the sijuare of the diameter of cylinder in inches hy the cube root of the length of stroke in feet ; divide the product hy 10 : the quotient expresses the number of square feet of effective heating surface. Required the amount of effective heating surface for an engine irhose stroke = 8 ft., and diameter of cylinder = 50 inches. Here, according to Ruie 2, effective heating surface in square feet 50= X '^B 2500 X 2 5000 ^„„ = 10 = ^LO ^ ^0" = ^^'^- To solve this example according to the first rale, we have the nominal horse power of the engine equal to 106'4. Hence, ac- cording to Rule 2, total effective heating surface in square feet = 106-4 X 4-92 = 523^. ErrECTIVE HEATING SURFACE OF TUBULAR BOILERS. The effective heating surface of tubular boilers is about equal to the total heating surface of flue boilers, or is double the effective surface ; but then the total tube surface is reckoned effective sur- face. It appears that the total heating surface of flue and tubular ma- rine boilers is about the same, namely, about 10 square feet per horse power. VII. Area of Ohimney. — Rule 1. — To find the area of chimney. — Multiply the number of nominal horse power by 10-23 ; the pro- duct is the area of chimney in square inches. Required the area of the chimney for an engine of 400 nominii.l horse power. In this example we have, according to the rule, area of chimney in square inches = 400 x 10-23 = 4092. We may also find a rule for connecting together the area of the chimney, the length of the stroke, and the diameter of the cyJinder. Rule 2. — To find the area of the chimney. — Multiply the square of the diameter expressed in inches by the cube root of the stroke expressed in feet ; divide the product by the number 5 ; the quo- tient expresses the number of square inches in the area of chimney. Required the area of the chimney for an engine whose stroke — 8 feet, and diameter of cylinder = 50 inches. We have in this example from the rule, 50= x ^"8 2500 X 2 area of chimney in square inches = f = r = 1000. hv Google 258 THE PEACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOE. To work this example according to the first rule, we find, that the nominal horse power of this engine ia 104-6 : hence, area of chimney in square inches = 104-6 x 10-23 = lOTO. The latter value is greater than the former one by 70 inches. This difference arises from our taking too gr^at a divisor in Rule 2. Either of the values, however, is near enough for all practical purposes. VIII, Water in Boiler.— Iho quantity of water in the boiler diifers not only for different boilers, but differs even for the same boiler at different times. It may he useful, however, to know the average quantity of water in the boiler for an engine of a given horse power. Rule 1. — To determine the average quantity of tvater in the boiler. — Multiply the number of horse power by 5 ; the product expresses the cubic feet of water usually in the boiler. This rule may be so modified as to make it depend upon the stroke and diameter of the cylinder of engine. Rule 2. — To determine the cubie feet of water usually in the boiler. — Multiply together the cube root of the stroke in feet, the square of the diameter of the cylinder in inches, and the number 5 ; divide the continual product by 47 ; the quotient expresses the cu- bic feet of water usually in the boiler. Required the usual quantity of water in the boilers of an engine whose stroke == 8 feet, and diameter of cylinder 50 inches. Here we have from the rule, 5 X 50= X ^8" ox 2500 x 2 cubic feet of water in boiler = -— f= = jy 25000 ^_ , = — jii — = oo2 nearly. The engine, with the dimensions we have specified, is of 106-4 nominal horse power. Hence, according to Rule 1, cubic feet of water in boiler = 106-4 X 5 = 532. IX. Area of Water Level. — Rule 1, — To find the area of water level. — The area of water level contains the same number of square feet as there are units in the number expressing the nominal horse power of the engine. Required the area of water level for an engine of 200 nominal horse power. According to the rule, the answer is 200 square feet. We add a rule for finding the area of water level when the di- ameter of cylinder and the length of stroke is given. Rule 2, — To find the area of water level. — Multiply the square of the diameter in inches by the cube root of the stroke in feet ; divide the product by 47 ; the quotient expresses the number of square feet in the area of water level. Required the area of the water level for an engine wlioso stroke is 8 feet, and diameter of eyliniler 50 inelics. hv Google THE STEAM EKGINB. 259 lu tliiB case, according to the rule, area of water level m sqnare leet = ■ " 47 ' "" = I'Jo. X. iS'feflJK Room. — It is obvioua that the steam room, like the quantity of -water, is an extremely variable quantity, differing, not only for different hollers, but even in the same boiler at different times. It ia desirable, however, to know the content of that part of the boiler usually filled with steam. Rule 1. — To determine the average quantity of steam room. — Multiply the number expressing the nominal horse power by 3 ; the product expresses the average number of cubic feet of steam room. Required the average capacity of steam room for an engine of 460 nominal horse power. According to the rule, Average capacity of steam room = 460 X 3 cubic feet = 1380 cubic feet. This rule may he so modified as to apply when the length of stroke and diameter of cylinder are given. Rl'LE 2. — Multiply the square of the diameter of the cylinder in inches by the cube root of the stroke in feet ; divide the product by 15 ; the quotient expresses the number of cubic feet of steam Required the average capacity of steam room for an engine whose stroke is 8 feet, and diameter of cylinder 5 inches. In this case, according to the rule, , . ^ 50' X -^8 2500 X 2 5000 Steam room m cubic feet = -j - ■ = -,r"" = •■ -..r = 333f We find that the nominal horse power of this engine is 100--4 ; hence, according to Rule 1, average steam room in cubic feet = 106'4 X 3 = 320 nearly. Before leaving these rules, we would again repeat that they ought not to be considered as rules founded upon considerations for giving the maximum effect from the combustion of a given amount of fuel ; and consequently the engineer ought not to consider them as inva- riable, but merely to bo followed as far as circumstances will per- mit. We give them, indeed, as the medium value of the very va- riable practice of several well-knoira constructors ; consequently, although the proportions given by tho rules may not be the best possible for producing the most useful effect, still the engineer who is guided by them is sure not to be very far from the common prac- tice of most of our best engineers. It has often been lamented that the methods used by different engine makers for estimating the nominal powers of their engines have been so various that we can form no real estimate of the dimensions of the engine, from its re- puted nominal horse power, unless we know its maker ; but the hv Google 260 THE PRACTICAL MODEL OALCTILATOK. same confusion exists, also, to some extent, in the construction of boilers. Indeed, many things may be mentioned, which have hitherto operated aa a barrier to the practical application of any Standard of engine power for proportioning the different parts of the boiler and furnace. The magnitude of furnace and the extent of heating surface necessary to produce any required rate of eva- poration in the boiler are indeed known, yet each engine-maker has his own rule in these matters, and which he seems to think pre- ferable to all others, and there are various circumstances influ- encing the result which render facts incomparable unless those cir- cumstances are the same. Thus the circumstances that govern the rate of evaporation, as influenced by different degrees of draught, may be regarded as but imperfectly known. And, supposing the difficulty of ascertaining this rate of evaporation were surmounted, there would still remain some difficulty in ascertaining the amount of power absorbed by the condensation of the steam on its passage to the cylinder — the imperfect condensation of the same steam after it has worked the piston — the friction of the various moving parts of the machinery — and, especially, the difference of effect of these losses of power in engines constructed on different scales of magni- tude. Practice must often vary, to a certain extent, in the con- struction of the different parts of the boiler and furnace of an en- gine ; for, independently of the difficulty of solving the general problem in engineering, the determination of the maximum effect with the minimum of means, practice would still require to vary according as in any particular case tho desired minimum of means was that of weight, or bulk, or expense of material. Again, in es- timating the proper proportions for a boiler and its appendages, reference ought to bo made to the distinction between the " power" or " effect" of the boiler, and its " duty." This is a distinction to be considered also in the engine itself. The power of an engine has reference to the time it takes to produce a certain mechanical effect without reference to the amount of fuel consumed ; and, on the other hand, tho duty of an engine has reference to the amount of mechanical effect produced by a certain consumption of fuel, and is independent of tho time it takes to produce that effect. In ex- pressmg the duty of engine', it would ha\e prevented much need- less confusion if the duty of the boiiei had been entirely separated from that of the engine as, indeed, thoy nro two very distinct things The duty performed by ordmaiy lind rotative steam en- gines IS — One horse power exerted by 10 llis of fuel an hour ; or. Quarter of a million of lbs. raised 1 foot high by 1 lb. of coal ; or, Twenty millions of lbs. raised one foot by each bushel of coals. Though in the best class of rotative engines the consumption is not above half of this amount. The constant aim of different engine makers is to increase tho amount of the duty ; that is, to make 10 lbs. of fuel exert a greater effect than one horse power ; or, in other words, to make 1 lb. of hv Google THE STEAM ENGINE. 261 coal I'aise more than a quarter of a million of lbs. one foot bigli. To a great extent they have been successful in this. They have caused 5 lbs. of coal to exert the force of one horse power, and even in some cases as little as 3i^ lbs. ; but in these latter cases the economy is due chiefly to expansive action. In some of the engines, however, working with a consumption of 10 lbs. of coal per nominal horse hower per hour, the power really exerted amounts to much more than that represented by 33,000 ibs. lifted one foot high in the minute for each horse power. Some engines lift 56,000 lbs. one foot high in tjie minute hy each horse power, with a consump- tion of 10 lbs. of coal per horse power per hour; and even this performance has been somewhat exceeded without a recourse to ex- pansive action. In all modern engines the actual performance much exceeds the nominal power ; and reference must he had to this circumstance in contrasting the duty of different engines. MECHANICAL POWEIt OP BTEA)!.

In the Cornish engines, which work with steam of 40 lbs. on the inch, the steam is cut off at one-twelfth of the stroke ; but if the steam were cut off at one-twelfth of the stroke in engines em- ploying a very low pressure, it would probably be found that tliere would be a loss rather than a gain from carrying the expansion so far, as the benefit might be more than neutralized by the friction incidental to the use of so large a cylinder as would be necessary to aceomplish this expansion ; and unless the vacuum were a very good one, there would be but little difference between the pressure of the steam at the end of the stroke and the pressure of the va- pour in the condenser, so that the urging force might not at that point he sufficient to overcome the friction. In practice, therefore, in particular cases, expansion may he carried too far, though theo- retically the amount of the benefit increases with the amount of the expansion. We must here introduce a simple practical rule to enable those who may not be familiar with mathematical symbols to determine the amount of benefit due to any particular measure of expansion. "When expansion is performed by an expansion valve, it is an easy thing to ascertain at what point of the stroke the valve is shut by the cam, and where expansion is performed by the slide valve the amount of expansion is easily determinable when the lap and stroke of the valve are knoivn. Rule. — To find the Increase of E^eieney arising from workiag Steam expansively. — Divide the total length of the stroke by the distance (which call 1) through which the piston moves before the steam is cut off. The hyperbolic logarithm of the whole stroke ex- pressed in terms of the part of the stroke performed with the full pressure of steam, represents the increase of efSciency due to ex- pansion. Suppose that the pressure of the steam working an engine is 45 lbs. on the square inch above the atmosphere, and that the steam is cut off at one-fourth of the stroke ; what is the increase of effi- ciency due to this measure of expansion ? If one-fourth be reckoned as 1, then four-fourths must be taken as 4, and the hyperbolic logarithm of 4 will be found to be 1'386, which is the increase of efficiency. The total efficiency of the quan- tity of steam expended during a stroke, therefore, which without expansion would have been 1, becomes 2'386 when expanded into 4 times its bulk, or, in round numbers, 2-4. Let the pressure of the steam be the same as in the last example, and let the steam be cut off at half-stroke : what, then, is the in- crease of efficiency ? hv Google THE STEAM EKOINE. 263 Here half the stroke is to be reckoned as 1, and tlio whole stroke has therefore to he reckoned as 2, The hyperholic logarithm of 2 is -693, ivhich is the increase of efficieacy, and the total efficiency of the stroke ia 1-693, or 1-7.

Our foriaula gives the effect of a cuhic foot of water ; but it can he modified to give the effect of the steam of a cubic inch by dividing by 1728. In this manner we find, for the mechanical effect of the steam of a cubic inch of water, about 8 (459 + t) lbs. raised one foot high. The table shows that the mechanical effect increases with the temperature. The increase is very rapid for temperatures bolow 212° ; but for temperatures above this the increase is less; and for the temperatures used in practice we may consider, with- out any material error, the mechanical effect as constant. INDICATOR. An instniment for ascertaining the amount of the pressure of steam and the state of the vacuum throughout the stroke of a steam engine. Fitzgerald and Neucuran long employed an instrument of this kind, the nature of which was for a long time not generally known. Boulton and Watt used an instrument acting upon the same principle and equally accurate ; but much more portable. la peculiarity of construction it is simply a small cylinder truly bored, and into which a piston is inserted and loaded by a spring of suit- able elasticity to the graduated scale thereon attached. The action of an indicator is that of describing, on a piece of paper attached, a diagram or figure approximating more or less to that of a rectangle, varying of course with the merits or demerits of the engine's productive effect. The breadth or height of the diagram is the sum of the force of the steam and extent of the va- cuum ; the length being the amount of revolution given to the paper during the piston's performance of its stroke. 'Xo render the indicator applicable, it is commonly screwed into the cylinder cover, and the motion to the paper obtained by means of a sufficient length of small twine attached to one of the radius bars ; but such application cannot always be conveniently effected, more especially in engines on the marine principle ; hence, other parts of such engines, and other means whereby to effect a proper degree of motion, must unavoidably be resorted to. In those of direct action the crosshead is the only convenient place of attach- ment ; but because the length of the engine's stroke is considerably more than the movement required for the paper on the indicator, it is necessary to introduce a pulley and axle, by which means the various movements are qualified to suit each other. When the indicator is fixed and the movement for the paper pro- perly adjusted, allow the engine to make a few revolutions previous to opening the cock ; by which means a horizontal line will be de- scribed upon the paper hy the pencil attached, and denominated the atmospheric line, because it distinguishes between the effect of the steam and that of the vacuum. Open the cock, and if the en- gine he upon the descending stroke, the steam will instantly raise the piston of the indicator, and, by the motion of the paper with the pencil pressing thereon, the top side of the diagram will be formed. hv Google TUB STEAM ERQINE, 265 At the termination of the stroke and immediately previous to its return, the piston of the indicator is pressed down by the surround- ing atmosphere, consequently the bottom side of the diagram is de- Bcribed, and by the time the engine is about to make another de- scending stroke, the piston of the indicator is where it first started from, the diagram being completed ; hence is delineated the mean elastic action of the steam above that of the atmospheric line, and also the mean extent of the vacuum underneath it. But in order to elucidate more a |^ clearly by example, take the follow- ing diagram, taken from a marine engine, the steam being cut off after the piston had passed through two- thirds of its stroke, the graduated scale on the indicator, tenths of an inch, as shown at each end of the diagram annexed. Previous to the cock being opened, the atmospheric line AB was formed, and, when opened, the pencil was instantly raised by the action of the steam on the piston to C, or what is generally termed the startiii0 comer; by the move- ment of the paper and at the ter- mination of the stroke the line CD was formed, showing the force of the steam and extent of expansion ; from D to E show the moments of eduction ; from E to F the quality of the vacuum ; and from F to A the lead or advance of the valve ; thus every change in the en- gine is exhibited, and every deviation from a rectangle, except that of expansion and lead of the valve show the estent of proportionate defect. Expansion produces apparently a defective diagram, but in reality such is not the case, because the diminished power of the engine is more than compensated by the saving in steam. Also the lead of the valve produces an apparent defect, but a certain amount must be given, as being found advantageous to the working of the engine, but the steam and eduction corners ought to be as square as possible ; any rounding on the steam corner shows a de- fect from want of lead ; and rounding on the eduction corner that of the passages or apertures being too small. Rule. — To compute the power of an Engine from the Indicator Diagram. — Divide the diagram in the direction of its length into any convenient number of equal parts, through which draw lines at right angles to the atmospheric line, add together the lengths of all the spaces taken in measurements corresponding with the scale on tlie indicator, divide the sum by the number of spaces, and the / ■",::n'" z /^" 3 lae TJI 7J a 11. 7.« S iM I..

Let the result of the preceding diagram be taken as an example. Then, the whole sum of vacuum spaces = 1220 -h 10 = 12-2 lbs. mean effect obtained by the vacuum ; and in a similar manner the mean effective pressure of steam is found to be 6'23 lbs., hence the total effective force = 18-48 lbs. per square inch. And supposing 2-5 lbs. per square inch be absorbed by friction, What is the actual power of the engine, the cylinder's diameter being 32 inches, and the velocity of the piston 226 feet per minute ? 18-48 — 2-5 = 15-98 lbs. per square inch of net available force. 32^ X -7854 X 15-98 x 226 , , Then ^flfio ~ horses power. The line under the diagram and parallel to the atmospheric line is 3|ths distant, and represents the perfect vacuum line, the space between showing the amount of force with which the uncondensed steam or vapour resists the ascent or descent of the piston at every part of the stroke. As the mean pressure of the atmosphere is 15 lbs. per square inch, and the mean specific gravity of mercury 13560, or 2-037 cu- bic inches equal 1 lb., it will of course rise in the barometer at- tached to the condenser about 2 inches for every lb. effect of va- cuum, and as a pure vacuum would be indicated by 30 inches of mercury, the distance between the two lines shows whether there is or is not any amount of defect, as sometimes there ia a consider- able difference in extent of vacuum in the cylinder to that in the condenser. To estimate hy means of an indicator the amount of effective power produced iy a steam engine. — Multiply the area of the piston in square inches by the average force of the steam in lbs. and by the velocity of the piston in feet per minute ; divide the product by 33,000, and ^ths of the quotient equal the effective power. Suppose an engine with a cylinder of 37^ inches diameter, a stroke of 7 feet, and making 17 revolutions per minute, or 238 feet velocity, and the average indicated pressure of the steam 16-73 lbs. per square inch ; required the effective power.

This rule of equidistant ordinates is of great use in the art of ship -building. This application we shall introduce in the proper place. 8. How many units of work are necessary to impart to a carriage of 3000 lbs. weif^ht, resting on a perfectly smooth railroad, a velo- city of 100 feet ? TV1&2. ^ ^'^^'^ = 466838-2 units. A unit of work is that labour which is equal to the raising of a poand through the space of one foot. A unit of work is done when one pound pressure is esorted through a space of one foot, no matter in what direction that space may lie. Kane Fitzgerald, the first that made steam turn a crank, and patented it, and the fly-wheel to regulate its motion, estimated that a horse could perform S3000 units of work in a minute, that is, raise 33000 lbs. one foot high in a minute. To perform 465838-2 units of work in 10 minutes would require the application 1-4116 horse power. 9.

The following is without doubt a very simple formula, but the most useful one in mechanics ; by it we have solved tlie last two questions ; Fs = (H - /() W. This simple formula involves the principle tactnieally termed the principle of vis viva, or living fobces. H is the height due to one velocity, say v or H = q— and h, the height due to another a, or 7( = K-. The weight of the mass = \\ ; the force F, and the space 8. To express this principle in words, wo may say, that the working power (Fs) which a mass either acquires when it passes from a lesser velocity {«) to a greater velocity {v), or produces when it is com- pelled to pass from a greater velocity [v) into a less (a), is always equal to the product of the weight of the mass and the difference of the heights due to the velocities. When we know the ■units of work, and the distance in which the change of velocity goes on, the force is easily found ; and when the force is known, the distance is readily determined. Suppose, in the last example, that the change of velocity from 30 to 50 feet took place in a distance of 300 feet, then 124068 - j)^^ = 413-56 lbs. = F, the force constantly applied during 300 feet. 10. If a sleigh, weighing 2000 lbs., after describing a distance of 250 feet, has completely lost a velocity of 100 feet, what constant resistance does the friction offer ? Since the terminal velocity = 0, the height due to it = 0, hence (100)^ 2000 G4-4 ^,250 ' = 1242-2352 1! We have been calculating upon the principle of vis vtca; but the product of the mass and the squai-e of the velocity, without attach- ing to it any definite idea, is termed the vis viva, or living force. 11. A body weighing 2300 ibs. moves with a velocity of 20 feet the second, required the vis viva? 2300 -^^ = 71-42857 lbs., mass. 71-42857 X (20)= = 28571-428, the amount o? vis vim. Hence, if a mass enters from a velocity a, into another v, the unit of work done is equal to half the difference of the vis vii:a, at the commencement and end of the change of velocity.

STRENGTH OF MATEEIAIS. EMPLOYED IN THE CONSTEUCTIOX OP MACHINES. In theoretical mechanics, ire deal with imaginary quantities, which are perfect in all their properties ; they are perfectly hard, and perfectly elastic ; devoid of weight in statics and of friction in dy- namics. In practical mechanics, we deal with real material objects, among which we find none which arc perfectly hard, and none, ex- cept gaseous bodies, which are perfectly elastic ; all have weight, and experience resistance in dynamical action. Practical mechanics is the science of automatic labour, and its objects are machines and their applications to the transmission, modification, and regulation of motive power. In this it takes as a basis the theoretical deduc- tions of pure mechanics, but superadds to the formulte of the ma^ thematician a multitude of facts deduced from observation, and ex- perimentally elaborates a now code of laws suited to the varied con- ditions to be fulfilled in the economy of the industrial arts. In reference to the structure of machines, it is to be observed that however simple or complex the machine may he, it is of im- portance that its parts combine lightness with strength, and rigidity ■with uniformity of action ; and that it communicates the power without sliocks and sudden changes of motion, by which the passive resistances may be increased and the effect of the engine dimi- nished. To adjust properly the disposition and arrangement of the indi- vidual members of a machine, implies an exact knowledge and esti- tnate of the amount of strain to which they are respectively subject in the working of the machine ; and this skill, when exercised in conjunction with an intimate acquaintance with the nature of the materials of which the parts are themselves composed, must con- tribute to the production of a machine possessing the highest amount of capability attainable with the given conditions. Materials. — The material most commonly employed in the con- hv Google 212 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCTJLAIOK. atruction of macliinery is iron, in the two states of cast and wrougld or forged iron ; and of these, there are several varieties of quality. It becomes therefore a problem of much practical importance to determine, at least approximately, the capabilities of the particular material employed, to resist permanent alteration in the directions in which they are subjected to strain ia the reception and trans- mission of the motive power. To indicate briefly the fundamental conditions which determine the capability of a given weight and form of material to resist a given force, it must, in the first place, be observed, that rupture may take place either by tension or by compression in the direc- tion of the length. To tlie former condition of strain is opposed the tenacity of the material ; to the other ia opposed the resistance to the cruBhing of its mhstance. Rupture, by transverse strain, is opposed both by the tenacity of the material and its capability to withstand compression together of its particles. Lastly, the bar may be ruptured by torsion. Mr. Oliver Byrne, the author of the present work, in his New Theory of the Strength of Materials has pointed out new elements of much importance. The capabilities of a material to resist extension and compression are often different. Thus, the soft gray variety of cast iron offers a greater resistance to a force of extension than the white variety in a ratio of nearly eight to five; but the last offers the greatest resistance to a compressing force. The resistance of cast iron to rupture by extension varies from 6 to 9 tons upon the square inch ; and that to rupture by compres- sion, from 36 to 65 tons. The resistance to extension of the best forged iron may be reckoned at 25 tons per inch ; but the corre- sponding resistance to compression, although not satisfactorily ascer- tained, is generally considered to be greatly less than that of cast iron. Roudelet makes it 31J tons on the square inch. Cast iron (and even wood) is therefore to be preferred for vertical supports. The forces resisting rupture are as the areas of the sections of rnpture, the material being the same ; this principle holds not only in respect of iron, but also of wood. Many inquiries have been in- stituted to determine the commonly received principle, that the strength of rectangular beams of the same width to resist rupturo by transverse strain is as the squares of the depths of the beams. In these respects the experiments, although valuable on account of their extent and the care with which they were conducted, pos- sess little novelty ; but in directing attention to the elastic proper- ties of the materials experimented upon, it was found that the re- ceived doctrine of relation between the limit of elasticity and weight requires modification. Tho common assumption is, that the de- struction of the elastic properties of a material, that is, the dis- placement beyond the elastic limit, does not manifest itself until the load exceeds one-third of the breaking weight. It was found, however, on the contrary, that its effect was produced and mani- fested in a permanent set of the material when the load did not ex- hv Google STRENOTH OP MATEKIALE. 273 ceed one-sixteenth of that necessury to produce rupture. Thus a bar of one inch equare, supported between propa 4J- feet apart, did not break till loaded with 496 lbs. but showed a permanent deflec- tion or set when loaded with 16 lbs. In other cases, loads of 7 lbs. and 14 lbs. were found to produce permanent sets when the break- ing weights were respectively 364 lbs. and 1120 lbs. These sets were therefore given by j'jd and j^tb of the breai;ing weights. Since these results were obtained, it has been found that time and the weight of the material itself are sufficient to effect a per- manent deflection in a beam supported between props, so that there would seem to be no such limits in respect to transverse strain as those known by the name of elastic limits, and consequently the principle of loading a beam within the elastic limit has no founda- tion in practice. The beam yields continually to the load, but witii an exceedingly slow progression, until the load approximates to the breaking weight, when rupture speedily succeeds to a rapid deflection. As respects the effect of tension and compression by transverse strain, it was ascertained by a very ingenious experiment that equal loads produced equal deflections in both cases. Another moat important principle developed by experiments, fa that respecting the compression of supporting columna of different heights. When the height of the column exceeded a certain limit, it was found that the crushing force became constant, and did not increase as the height of the column increased, until it reached another limit at which it began to yield, not strictly by crushing, but by the bending of the material. The first limit was found to be a height of little leas than three times the radius of the column ; and the second double that height, or about six times the radius of the column. In columns of different heights between these limits, having equal diameters, the force producing rupture by compression was nearly constant. When the column was less than the lower limit, the crushing force became greater, and when it was greater than the higher limit, the crushing force became less. It was fur- ther found that in all cases, where the height of the column was exactly above the limits of three times the radius, the section of rupture was a plane inclined at nearly the same constant angle of 55 degrees to the axis of the column. These facts mutually ex- plain each other ; for in every height of column above the limit, the section of rupture being a plane at the same angle to the axis of the colutan, must of necessity bo a plane of the same size, and therefore in each case the cohesion of the same number of particles must bo overcome in producing rupture. And further, the same number of particles being to be overcome under the same circum- stances for every different height, the same force will be required to overcome that amount of cohesion, until at double the height (three diameters) the column begins to bead under ita load. This height being surpassed, it follows that a pressure which becomes continually lesa as the length of the column is increased, will be sufficient to break it. hv Google 2V4 TEE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. This property, moreover, is not confined to cast iron ; the ex- periments of M.'Rond.elet show that with coluaiiis of wrought iron, wood, and stone, similar results are obtained. Ej-om theae facts then, it appears that if supporting columns be taken of different diameters, and of heights so great aa not to allow of their bending, yet suf&ciently high to allow of a complete sepa- ration of the planes of fracture, that is, of heights intermediate to three times and sis times their radius, then will their strengths be as the number of particles in their planes of fracture ; and the planes of fracture being inclined at eijnal angles to the axes of tbe columns, their areas will be as the transverse sections of the .co- lumns, and consequently the strengths of the columns will be as tbeir transverse sections respectively. Taking the mean of three experiments upon a column \ inch diameter, the crushing force was 6426 lbs. ; whilst the mean of foiu' experiments, Conducted in ex- actly the same manner, upon ^ column of f of an inch diameter, gave 14542 lbs. The diameters of the columns being 2 to 3, the areas of transverse section were therefore 4 to 9, which is very nearly the ratio of the crushing weights. When the length of the column ia so great that jta fracture ia produced wholly by bending of its material, the limit has been fixed for columns of cast iron, at 30 times the diameter when the ends are flat, and 15 times the diameter when the ends are. rounded. ,In shorter columns, fracture takes place partly by crushing and partly by bending of the material. When the column is enlarged in the middle of its length from one and a half to two times the diameter of the ends, the strength was found by the same experimenter to be greater by one-seventh than in solid columns containing the same quantity of iron, in the same length, with their extremities rounded ; and stronger by an eighth or a ninth when the extremities were flat and rendered immovable by disks. The following formulas give the absolute strength of cylindrical columns to sustain pressure in the direction of their length. In these formulas D = the external diameter of the column in inches. d = the internal diameter of hollow columns in inches. L = the length of the column in feet, W = the breaking weight in tons.

When a beam is deflected bj transverse strain, the material on that side of it on which it sustains the strain is compressed, and the material on the opposite side is exteyided. Tbe imaginary surface at which the compression terminates and the extension begins — at which there is supposed to be neither extension nor compression — is termed the neutral axis of the beam. What constitutes the strength of a beam is its resistance to compression on the one side and to extension on the other side of that axis — the forces acting about the line of axis like antagonist force at the two extremities of a lever, so that if either of them yield, the beam will he broken. It becomes, however, a question of importance to determine the re- lation of these forces ; in other words, to determine whether the beam of given form and material will yield first to compression or to extension. This point is settled by reference to the columns of the subsequent table, page 280, in which it will be observed that the metals require a much greater force to crush them than to tear them asander, and that the woods require a much smaller force. There is also another consideration which must not be overlooked. Bearing in mind the condition of antagonism of the forces, it is ob- vious, that the further these forces are placed from the neutral axis, that is, from the fulcrum of their leverage, the greater must be their effect. In other words, all the material resisting compres- sion will produce its greatest effect when collected the farthest possi- ble from the neutral axis at the top of the beam ; and, in like man- ner, all the material resisting extension will produce its greatest effect when similarly disposed at the bottom of the beam. We are thus directed to the first general principle of the distribution of the material into two flanges — one forming the top and the other the bot- tom of the beam — joined by a comparatively slender rib. Associat- ing with this principle the relation of the forces of extension and compression of the material employed, we arrive at a form of beam in which the material is so distributed, that at the instant it is about to break by extension on the one Side, it i« ibout to bicik by n pression on the other, and consequently is of the strongest form. Thus, supposing that it is le quired to determine that foim m a girder of cast iron: the ratio of the crushing foice of that metal to the force of extension ra-xj be • taken generally as 6^ to 1, which ii theietore al«o the ratio of the lower to the upper flange, as in the annexed sectional dngrim A series of nine castings weie made, giadually mcieasmg the lower flange at the expense of the uppei one, and m the fiist aight hv Google 276 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOE. experiments the beam broke by tbe tearing asunder of the longer flange ; and in the last experiment the beam yielded by the crush- ing of the upper flange. In the eight experiments the upper flange was therefore the weakest, and in the ninth the strongest, so that the form of maximum strength was intermediate, and very closely allied to that form of beam employed in the last experiment, nhich was greatly the strongest. The circumstances of these experiments are contained in the following table.

From this it is not to be inferred that the beam ought to have the same transverse section throughout its length. On the con- trary, it is clear that the section ought to have a definite relation to the leverage at which the load acts. From a mathematical con- sideration of the conditions, it indeed appears that the effect of a given load to break the beam varies when it is placed over different yr — points of it, as the products ^—^ of the distances of these points from the points of support of \\\:i beam. Thus the eff'ect of a weight pVced at the point W^ is to the effect of the same weight acting upon the point W^, as the product AWj X W^ B is to the product AW, X W^ E ; the points of sup- port being atA andB. Since then the effect of a weight increnses as it approaches the middle of the length of the beam, at which it is a maximum, it is plain that the beam does not require to have the same transverse section near to its extremities as in the middle ; and, guided by the principle stated, it is easy to perceive that its strength at different points should in strictness vary as the products of the distances of these points from the points of support. By "75 b,Google STREKKTH OP MATERIALS. 2TY taking this law as a fundamental condition in the distribution of the strength of a beam, whose load we may conceive to be accumu- lated at the middle of ita length, we arrive at the strongest form which can be attained under given circumstances, with a given amount of material; we arrive at that form which renders the beam equally liable to rupture at every point. Kow this form of masi- mum strength may be attained in two ways ; either by varying the depth of the beam according to the law stated, or by preserving the depth everywhere the same, and varying the dimensions of the upper and lower flanges according to the same law. The conditions are manifestly identical. We may therefore assume generally the condition that the section is rectangular, and that the thickness of the flanges is constant; then the outline determined by the law in question, in the one case of the elevation of the beam and in the other of the plan of the flanges, is the geometrical curve called a parabola — rather, two parabolas joined base to base at the middle between the points of support. The annexed diagram represents the plan of a cast-iron girder according to this form, the depth being uniform throughout. Both flanges are of the same form, but the dimensions of the upper one are such as to give it only a sixth of the strength of the other. This, it will be observed, is also the form, considered as an ele- vation, of the beam of a steam engine, which good taste and regard to economy of material have rendered common. It must, however, be borne in mind, that in the actual practice of construction, materials cannot with safety be subjected to forces approaching to those which produce rupture. In machinery espe- cially, they are liable to various and accidental pressures, besides those of a permanent kind, for which allowance must be made. The engineer must therefore in his practice depend much on expe- rience and consideration of the species of work which the engine is designed to perform. If the engine be intended for spinning, pumping, blowing, or other regular work, the material may be sub- jected to pressures approaching two-thirds of that which would ac- tually produce rupture ; but in engines employed to drive bone- mills, stampers, breaking-down rollers, and the like, double that strength will often be found insufficient. In cases of that nature, experience is a better guide than theory. It is also to be remarked that we are often obliged to depart from the form of strength which the calculation gives, on account of the partial strains which would be put upon some of the parts of a casting, in consequence of unequal cooling of the metal when the thicknesses are unequal. An expert founder can often reduce the irregular contractions which thus result ; but, even under the best management, fractm'e is not unfrequently produced by irregu- hv Google 278 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. larity of cooling, and it is at all times better to avoid tlie danger entirely, than to endeavour to obviate it by artifice. For this rea^ son, the parts of a casting ought to be as nearly as possible of such thickness as to cool and contract regularly, and by that means all partial strain of the parts will be avoided. With respect to design, it is also to be remarked, that mere theo- retical properties of parts will not, under all the varieties of circum- stances which arise in the working of a machine, insure that exact adjustment of material and propriety of form so much desired ia constructive mechanics. Every design ought to take for its basis the mathematical conditions involved, and it would, perhaps, be im- possible to arrive at the best forms and proportions by any more direct mode of calculation ; but it is necessary to superacid to the mathematical demons tratiftn, the exercise of a well-matured judg- ment, to secure that degree of adjustment and arrangement of parts in which the merits of a good design mainly consist. A purely theoretical engine would look strangely deficient to the practised eye of the engineer ; and the merely theoretical contriver would speedily find himself lost, should he venture beyond his construction on paper. His nice calculations of the " work to be performed," of the vis viva of the mechanical organs of his machine, and of the modu- lus of elasticity of his material, would, in practice, alike deceii-e him. The first consideration in the design of a machine is the quantity of work which each part has to perform — in other words, the forces, active and inactive, which it has to resist ; the direction of the forces in relation to the cross-section and points of support ; the velocity, and the changes of velocity to which the moving parts are subject. The calculations necessary to obtain these must not be confined to theory alone ; neither should they be entirely deduced by " rule of thumb ;" by the first mode the strength would, in all probability, be deficient from deficiency of material, and by the second rule the material would be injudiciously disposed ; weight would bo added often where least needed, merely from the deter- mination to avoid fracture, and in consequence of a want of know- ledge respecting the true forms best adapted to give strength. To the following general principles, in practice, there are but few real exceptions : I. Direct Strain.—To thib a utiaight line n if the part be of consideidble length, vibration ought to be coun teracted by intersection of planes, (technically feathers,) as repre sented in the annexed diagiams, or some such form, consistent with the purpo=ie for i\hich the pirt is intended. II. Transverse Strain. — To this a parabolic form of section must be opposed, or some simple figure including the parabolic form. For economy of material, the vertex of the curve ought to bo at the point where the force is applied; and when the strain passes hv Google STREKGTH OP MATERIALS. 279 alternately from one side of the part to the other, the curve ought to be on both sides, as in the beam of a steam engine. When a loaded piece is supported at one end only, if the breadth bo everywhere the same, the form of equal strength is a triangle ; but, if the section be a circle, then the solid will be that generated by the rcYolution of a semi-parabola about its longer axis. In prac- tice, it Tvill, however, be sufficient to employ the frustum of a cone, of which, in the case of cast iron, the diameter at the unsupported end is one-third of the diameter at the fixed end. III. Torsion. — The section most commonly opposed to torsion ia a circle ; and, if the strain be applied to a cylinder, it is obvious the rupture must first take place at the surface, where the torsion is greatest, and that the further the material is placed from the neutral axis, the greater must be its power of resistance ; and hence, the amount of materials being the same, a shaft is stronger when made hollow than if it were made solid. It ought not, however, to be supposed that the circle ia the only figure which gives an axis the property of off'ering, in every direc- tion, the same resistance to flexure. On the contrary, a square sec- tion gives the same resistance in the direction of its sides, and of its diagonals ; and, indeed, in every direction the resistance is equal. This is, moreover, the case with a great number of other figures, which may be formed by combining the circle and the square in a symmetrical manner ; and hence, if the axis, strengthened by salient sides, as in feathered shafts, do not answer as well as cylindrical ones, it must arise from their not being so well disposed to resist torsion, and not from any irregularities of flexure about the axis inherent in the particular form of section. This subject has been investigated with much care, and, accord- ing to M. Cauchy, the modulus of rupture by torsion, T, is con- nected with the modulus of rupture by transverse strain S, by the simple analogy T = J S. 'I'he forms of all the parts of a machine, in whatever situation and under every variety of circumstances, may be deduced from these simple figures ; and, if the calculations of their dimensions be correctly determined, the parts will not only possess the requi- site degree of strength, but they will also accord with the general principles of good taste. In arranging the details of a machine, two circumstances ought to be taken into consideration. The first is, that the parts subject to wear and influenced by strain, should be capable of adjustment ; the second is, that every part should, in relation to the work it has to perform, be equally strong, and present to the eye a figure that is consistent with its degree of action. Theory, practice, and taste must all combine to produce such a combination. No formal law can be expressed, either by words or figures, by which a certain contour should be preferred to another ; both may be equally strong and equally correct in reference to theory ; custom, then, must be appealed to as the guide. hv Google THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. hv Google STaENGTII OP MATERIALS.

Therefore, by the law of fracture thus esta- blished, and proper data of tenacity and compression given, as in the Table (p. 281), we are enabled to form metal beams of strongest section with the least possible material : thus, in cast iron the re- sistance to compression is nearly as 6^ to 1 of tenacity ; conse- quently a beam of cast iron, to be of strongest section, must be of the form TB, and a parabola in the direction of its ^^ length, the quantity of material in the bottom flange jf being about 6} times that of the upper ; but such is not , [ the case with beams of timber ; for although the tenacity of timber he on an average twice that of its resistance to compres- sion, its flexibility is so great, that any considerable length of beam, where columns cannot be situated to its support, requires to he strengthened or trussed by iron rods, as in the following manner : An 1 these applications of pnnciple not only tend to diminish de- flection lut the required purpose is also more effectively attained, and thit by lighter pieces of timber.

OF IRICTION, In the years 1831, 1832, and 1833, a very extensive set of ex- periments were made at Metz, by M. Morin, under the sanction of the French government, to determine as nearly as possible the laws of friction ; and by which the following were fully est.abli3hed : 1. When no unguent is interposed, the friction of any two sur- faces (whether of quiescence or of motion) is directly proportional to the force with which they are pressed perpendicularly together ; so that for any two given surfaces of contact there is a constant ratio of the friction to the perpendicular pressure of the one surface upon the other. AVhilst this ratio is thus the same for the same hv Google ays THE PEACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. surfaces of contact, it is different for JifFercnt surfaces of contact. The particular value of it iti respect to a,ny two given surfaces of contact is called the coefficient of friction in respect to those sur- faces. 2. When no unguent is interposed, the amount of the friction is, in every case, wholly independent of the extent of the surfaces of contact ; so that, the force with which two surfaces are pressed to- gether being the same, their friction is the same, whatever may be the extent of their surfaces of contact. 3. That the friction of motion is wholly independent of the velo- city of the motion. 4. That where unguents arc interposed, the coefficient of friction depends upon the nature of the unguent, and upon the greater or less abundance of the supply. In respect to the supply of the un- guent, there are two extreme cases, that in which the surfaces of contact are but slightly rubbed with the unctuous matter, as, for instance, with an oiled or greasy cloth, and that in which a con- tinuous stratum of unguent remains continually interposed between the moving surfaces ; and in this state the amount of friction is found to be dependent rather upon the nature of the unguent than upon that of the surfaces of contact. M. Morin found that with unguents (hog's lard and olive oil) interposed in a continuous stra- tum between surfaces of wood on metal, wood on wood, metal on wood, and metal on metal, when in motion, have all of them very near the same coefficient of friction, being in all cases included be- tween -07 and -08. The coefficient for the unguent tallow is the same, except in that of metals upon metals. This unguent appears to be less suited for metallic substances than the others, and gives for the mean value of its coefficient, under the same circumstances, -10. Hence, it is evident, that where the extent of the surface sustaining a given pressure is so great as to make the pressure less than that which corresponds to a state of perfect separation, this greater extent of surface tends to increase the friction by reason of that adhesiveness of the unguent, dependent upon its greater or less viscosity, whose effect is proportional to the extent of the surfaces between which It was found, from a mean of experiments with different unguents on axles, in motion and under different pressures, that, with the unguent tallow, under a pressure of from 1 to 5 cwt., the friction did not exceed ^th of the whole pressure ; when soft soap was ap- plied, it became ^th ; and with the softer unguents applied, such as oil, hog's lard, &c., the ratio of the friction to the pressure in- creased ; but with the harder unguents, as soft soap, tallow, and anti-attrition composition, the friction considerably diminished ; consequently, to render an unguent of proper efficiency, the nature of the unguent must be measured by the pressure or weigtit tend- ing to force the surfaces together. hv Google STRERGTH OF MATERIALS.

RECENT EXPEUlMtlNTS MADE BY 31. MORIS ON TUB STIFFNESS OF EOrEfi, OH. TilE RESISTANCE OP BOrES TO EENDINO UPON A CIECIILAR ARC. The experiments upon which the rules and table following are founded were made by Coulomb, with an apparatus the invention of Amonton, and Coidomb himself deduced from them the follow- ing results : — 1. That the resistance to bending could be represented by an p nut f tw t rms, the one constant for each rope nd a h 11 1 h w hall designate by the letter A, and wl 1 tb jl 1 f h n m d the natural stiffness, because it de- p ! n 1 m d f f b ion of tho rope, and the degree of t f t y n nd t ands ; the other, proportional to the t n n T ft! nd f th ope which is being bent, and which p d >y th p 1 t BT, in which B is also a number ntntf 1 padah roller, 2 Tb t h ta t 1 nding varied inversely as the diame- t ftl 11 Thus the complete resistance is represented by the expression A + BT D " ' where D represents the diameter of the roller. Coulomb supposed that for tarred ropes the stiffness was pro- portional to the number of yarns, and M. Navier inferred, from examination of Coulomb's experiments, that the coeflicionta A and E were proportional to a certain power of the diameter, which de- pended on the extent to which the cords were worn. JI. Morin, however, deems this hypothesis inadmissible, and the following is an extract from his new work, "Lei^ons de &Kcanique Pratique," December, 1846 : — " To extend the results of the experiments of Coulomb to ropes of different diameters from those which had been experimented upon, M. Navier has allowed, very explicitly, what Coulomb had but surmised : that tho coefficients. A, were proportional to a cer- hv Google STRENGTH OP MATEKIALS. 303 tain power of the diameter, which depended on the state of wear of the ropes ; but this supposition appears to us neither borne out, nor even admissible, for it would lead to this consequence, that a worn rope of a metre diameter would have the same stiifness as a new rope, which is evidently wrong ; and, besides, the comparison alone of the values of A and B shows that the power to which the diameter should be raised would not be the same for the two terms of the resistance." Since, then, the form proposed by M. Navier for the expression of the resistance of ropes to bending cannot be admitted, it is ne- cessary to search for another, and it appears natural to try if the factors A and B cannot be expressed for white ropes, simply accord- ing to the number of yarns in the ropes, as Coulomb has inferred for tarred ropes. Now, dividing the values of A, obtained for each rope by M. Navier, by the number of yarns, we find for n = dO d = 0"'-200 A = 0-2224GO - = 0'0074153. --lu d = 0^444 A = -^ 6d = 0"-0088 A = 0-010604 - = 0-0042343. = 0-0017673. It is seen from this that the number A is not simply propor- tional to the number of yarns. Comparing, then, the values of the ratio — corresponding to the three ropes, wo find the following results : — ' "-nroa.

Consequently, the results of the experiments of Coulomb on dry white ropes will he represented ivith sufEcient exactoess for prac- tical purposes hy the formula K = M [0-00029r + 0-000245 n + 0>0003G3 T] kil. which will give the resistance to bending upon a drum of a metre in diameter, or by the formula R = ^ [0-000297 + 0-000245 n + 0-000363 T] kil. for a drum of diameter D metres. These formulas, transformed into the American scale of weights and measures, become U = n [0-0021508 + 0-00n724 n + 0-00119090 T] lbs. for a drum of a foot in diameter, and E = g [0-0021508 + 0-0017724 «, + 0.00119096 T] lbs. for a clrum of diameter D feet. With respect to worn ropes, the rule given by M. Navier cannot be admitted, as we have shown above, because it would give for tlio stiffness of a rope of a diameter equal to unity the same stiifness as for a new rope. The experiments of Coulomb on worn ropes not being sufficiently complete, and not furnishing any precise data, it is not possible, without new researches, to give a rule for calculating the stiffness of these ropes.

This expression is exactly of the same form as that which relates to white ropes, and shows that the stiffness of tarred ropes is a little greater than that of new white ropes.

JIORIN, ON TOE TRAC- TION" OP CAKUIACiES, AND THE DESTUCCTIVE EEEECTS WHICH THEY PRODUCE DPON THE ROADS. The study of the effects which ave produced ivhen a. carriage 13 set in motion can be divided into two distinct parts : the traction of carriages, properly so called, and their action upon the roads. The researches relative to the traction of carriages have for their object to determine the magnitude of the effort that the motive power ought to exercise according to the weight of the load, to the diameter and breadth of the wheels, to the velocity of the carriage, and to the state of repair and nature of the roads. The first experiments on the resistance that cylindrical bodies offer to being rolled on a level eurfaco are due to Coulomb, who determined the resistance offered by rollers of lignum vitie and elm, on plane oak surfaces placed horizontally. ilis experiments showed that the resistance was directly propor- tional to the pressure, and inversely proportional to the diameter of the rollers. If, then, P represent the pressure, and r the radius of the roller, the resistance to rolling, R, could, according to the laws of Cou- lomb, be expressed by the formula in which A would be a number, constant for each kind of ground, but varying with different kinds, and with the state of their The results of experiments made at Vineennes show that the law of Coulomb is approximately correct, but that the resistance increases as the width of the parts in contact diminishes. Other experiments of the same nature have confirmed these con- clusions; and we may allow, at least, as a lavf sufficiently exact for practical purposes, that for woods, plasters, leather, and gene- rally for hard bodies, the resistance to rolling is nearly — 1st.

These experiments were not considered sufBcient to authorise the extension of the foregoing conclusions to the motion of car- riages on ordinary roads. It was necessary to operate directly on the carriages themselves, and in the usual circumstances in which they are placed. Experiments on this subject were therefore un- dertaken, first at Metz, in 1837 and 1838, and afterwards at Coor- bevoie, in 1839 and 1841, with carriages of every species ; and attention was directed separately to the influence upon the magni- tude of the traction, of the pressure, of the diameter of the wheels, of their breadth, of the speed, and of the state of the ground. In heavily laden carriages, which it is most important to take hv Google SOO THE PEACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. into consideration, tbe weight of the wheels may be neglected in cornpiirison with the total load ; and the relation between the load and the traction, upon a level road, ia approximately given by the equation — F, 2 (Ax/?-,) p-= — ^ ,, for carnages with four wheels, F,' A X /r, ^ and p-= — ■ for carriages with two wheels, in which F, represents the horizontal component of the traction ; P, the total pressure on the ground ; t' and /' the radii of the fore and hind wheels ; r, the mean radius of the boxes ; / the coefficient of friction ; and A the constant multiplier in Coulomb's formula for the resistance to rolling. These expressions will serve us hereafter to determine, by aid of experiment, the ratio of the traction to the load for the most usual cases. Influence of the Pressure. To observe the influence of the pressure upon the resistance to rolling, the same carriages were made to pass with different loads over the same road in the same state.

It follows thence that the trac- tion is, ca;teris paribus and between certain limits, independent of the number of wheels. Influence of the Diameter of the Wheeh. To observe the influence of the diameter of the wheels on the traction, carriages loaded with the same weights, having wheels with tires of the same width, and of which the diameters only were varied between very extended limits, were made to traverse the same parts of roads in the same state.

Experiments made upon wheels of different breadths, having the same diameter, show, 1st, tfeat on soft ground the resistance to rolling increases aa the width of the felloe ; 2dly, on solid gravel and pitched roads, the resistance is very nearly independent of the width of the felloe. Influence of the Velocity. To investigate the influence of the velocity on the traction of carriages, the same carriages were made to traverse different roads in various conditions ; and in each series of experiments the velo- cities, while all other circumstances remained the same, underwent successive changes from a walk to a canter. Some of the results of these experiments are given in the follow- ing table : — * Empierrement eolido. t Pav6 en grfes. hv Google THE PKACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. c...,.„.,..,.,. — ■ .... .... w t™- "3" Apparatus npon a Ground of the po- 104'> Wall! 3 13 165'0 1/6-32 brass shaft. ]ygoii at Mctz, Trot ti-ati lti8-0 1/8-2 \-Mh Walk S-fifiO 215-0 1/6-21 Trot 7-560 107-0 1/6*8 Asisteen-pounder Road from Metz Walk carriage and to Montigny, 'Brisk walk 3-4110 92- 1/40-8 piece. solid graTel, very eyen and Tery dry.

To find the relation between the resistance to rolling and the ve- locity, the velocities were set ofi' as abscissas, and the values of A furnished by the experiments, as ordinates ; and the points thus determined were, for each series of experiments, situated very nearly upon a straight line. The value of A, then, can be repre- sented by the expression, A = a + d(V-2) in which a is a number constant for each particular state of each kind of ground, and which expresses the value of the number A for the velocity, V = 2 miles, {per houi',) which is that of a very slow walk. d, a factor constant for each kind of ground and each sort of carriage. The results of experiments made with a carriage of a siege train, ■with its piece, gave, on the Montigny road, §very good solid gravel, — A = 0-03215 X 0'00295 (V - 2). On the llpitched road Of Metz, A = 0-01936 X 0'08200 (V — 2). These examples are sufficient to show — Ist. That, at a walk, the resistance on a good pitched road is less than that on very good solid gravel, very dry. 2d. That, at high speeds, the resistance on the pitched road in- creases very rapidly with the velocity. On rough roads the resistance increases with the velocity much more slowly, however, for carriages with springs. t Grand trot. hv Google STEENOTH OP MATERIALS. 311 TIius, for a clianotdcs Messagenes G^n(;rales, on a pitched roaiJ, the experiments gave A = 0-0117 X 0-00361 (V — 2) ; while, with the springs wedged so as to prevent their action, the experiments gave, for the same carriage, on a similar road, A = 0-02723 X 0-01312 (V — 2). At a speed of nine miles per hour, the springs diminish the resistance by one-half. The experiments further showed that, while the pitched road was inferior to a *3olid gravel road when dry and in good repair, the latter lost its superiority when muddy or out of repair. INPLUINCE OF THE INCLINATION OF TIIE TRACES. The inclination of the traces, to produce the maximum effect, is given by the expression — AxO-9 6/r' in which /; = the height of the fore extremity of the trace above tte point where it is attached to the carriage ; 6 = the borizontat distance between these two points, r' is the radius of interior of the boxes, and r the radius of the wheel. The inclination given by this expression for ordinary carriages is very small ; and for trucks with wheels of Bmall diameter it is much less than the construction generally permits. It follows, from the preceding remarks, that it is a to employ, for all carriages, wheels of as large a diameter be used, without interfering with the other essentials to the pur- poses to which they are to be adapted. Carts have, in this respect, the advantage over wagons ; but, on the other hand, on rough roads, the thill horse, jerked about by the shafts, is soon fatigued. Kow, by bringing the hind wheels as far forward as possible, and placing the load nearly over them, the wagon is, in effect, transformed into a cart ; only care must be taken to place the centre of gravity of the load so far in front of the hind wheels that the wagon may not turn over in going up hill. ON THE PESTEDCnvil El'FECTS PRODUCED BY CAUttIACE3 ON TUB IIOAIIS. If we take stones of mean diameter from 1\ to 3^ inches, and, on a road slightly moist and soft, place them first under the small wheels of a diligence, and then under the large wheels, we find that, in the former case, the stones, pushed forward by the small wheels, penetrate the surface, ploughing and tearing it up ; while in the latter, being merely pressed and leant upon by the large wheels, th^ undergo no displacement. From this simple esperiment we are enabled to conclude that the wear of the roads by the wheels of carriages is greater the smaller the diameter of the wheels. Experiments having proved that on hard grounds the traction was bat slightly increased when the breadths of the wheels was * En erapierrement. b,Google 312 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOK. diminisliecl, we might also conclude that the wear of thi Hir.d wouhl be but slightly increasecl by dinouishing the width nf the felloes. Lastly, the resistance to rolling increasing with the velocity, it was natural to think that carriages going at a trot would do liiore injury to the roads than those going at a walk. But s[>nng=(, by diminishing the intensity of the impacts, are able to compensate, in certain proportions, for the effects of the velocity. Experiments, made upon a grand scale, and having for their object to observe directly the destructive effects of carnages upon the roads, have confirmed these conclusions. These experiments ahoived that with equal loads, on a solid gra- vel road, wheels of two inches breadtli produced considerably moi o wear than those of 4^ inches, but that beyond the latter width there was scarcely any advantage, so far as the preservation of the road was concerned, in increasing the size of the tire of the wheel. Experiments made with wheels of the same breadth, and of dia- meters of 2-86 ft., 4-77 ft., and 6-69 ft., showed that after the carriage of 10018-2 tons, over tracks 218-72 yards long, the track passed over by the carriage with the smallest wheels was by far the most worn ; while, on that passed over by the carriage with the wheels of 6-69 ft. diameter, the wear was scarcely perceptible. Experiments made upon two wagons exactly similar in all other respects, but one with and one without springs, showed that the wear of the roads, as well as the increase of traction, after the passage of 4577'36 tons over the same track, was sensibly the same for the carriage without springs, going at a walk of from 2'237 to 2-684 miles per hour, and for that wjtii springs, going at a trot of from 7'158 to 8-053 miles per hour. HYDRAULICS, THE DISCHARGE OF WATER BY SIMPLE ORIFICES AND TUBES. The formulas for finding the quantities of water discharged in a given time are of an extensive and complicated nature. The more important and practical results are given in the following Deduc- tions. When an aperture is made in the bottom or side of a vessel con- taining water or other homogeneous fluid, the whole of the particles of fluid in the vessel will descend in lines nearly vertical, until they arrive within three or four inches of the place of discharge, when they will acquire a direction more or less oblique, and flow directly towards the orifice. The particles, however, that are immediately over the orifice, de- scend vertically through the whole distance, while those nearer to the sides of the vessel, diverted into a direction more or less oblique as they approach the oriflce, move with a less velocity than the former ; and thus it is that there is produced a contraction in the size of the stream immediately beyond the opening, designated the vena contracta, and bearing a proportion to that of the orifice of hv Google HYDEAtfLICS. 313 about 5 to 8, if it pass through a thin plate, or of 6 to 8, if through a short cylindrical tube. But if the tube be conical to a length equal to half its larger diameter, having the issuing diameter less than the entering diameter in the proportion of 26 to 33, the stream does not become contracted. If the vessel be kept constantly full, there will flow from the aperture twice the quantity that the vessel is capable of contain- ing, in the same time in which it would have emptied itself if not kept supplied. 1.

THE DISOIIAEGB BY DIFFERENT APERTURES AiSD lUEES, UKDER DIF- The velocity of water flowing out of a hoHzontal aperture, is as the square root of the height of the head of the water. — That is, the pressure, and consequently the height, is as the square of the ve- locity ; for, the quantity flowing out iu any short time is aa the velocity ; and the force required to produce a velocity in a certain quantity of matter in a given time is also as that velocity ; there- fore, the force must be as the square of the velocity. Or, supposing a very small cylindrical plate of water, imme- diately over the orifice, to be put in motion at each instant, by the pressure of the whole cylinder upon it, employed only in generat- ing its velocity ; this plate would he urged by a force as much greater than its own weight as the column is higher than itself, through a space shorter in the same proportion than that height. But where the forces are inversely as the spaces described, the final velocities are equal. Therefore, the velocity of the water flowing out must be equal to that of a heavy body falling from the height of the head of water ; which is found, very nearly, by mul- tiplying the square root of that height in feet by 8, for the number of feet described in a second. Thus, a head of 1 foot gives 8 ; a head of 9 feet, 24. This is the theoretical velocity ; but, in con- sequence of the contraction of the stream, we must, in order to ob- tain the actual velocity, multiply the square root of the height, in feet, by 5 instead of 8. The velocity of a fluid issuing from an aperture is not affected by Its density being greater or less. Mercury and water issue with equal velocities at equal altitudes. The proportion of the theoretical to the actual velocity of a fluid issuing through an opening in a thin substance, according to M, Eytelwein, is as 1 to '619 ; but more recent experiments make it aa 1 to '621 up to ■645. APPLICATION OP THE TABLES IN THE PRECEDINO PAGE. Table I. — To find the quantities of water discharged hy orifices of different sizes under different altitudes of the fluid in the reser- voir. To find the quantity of fluid discharged by a circular aperture 3 inches in diameter, the constant altitude being 30 feet. As the real discharges are in the compound ratio of the area of the apertures and the square roots of the altitudes of the water, and aa the theoretical quantity of water discharged by an oriSce one inch in diameter from a height of 15 feet is, by the second co- lumn of the table, 16968 cubic inches in a minute, we have this proportion ; 1 ^/lb : 9 v/30 : : 16968 : 215961 cubic inches ; the theoretical quantity required. This quantity being diminished in the ratio of 1 to -62, being the ratio of the theoretical to the ac- tual discharge, according to the fourth column of the table, gives 133896 cubic inches for the actual quantity of water discharged by hv Google HYDRAULICS. S19 tbe given aperture. Hence, the quantity sliould be rather greater, because large orifices discharge more in proportion than small ones ; while it should be rather less, because the altitude of the fluid being greater than that in the table with which it is compared, the flowing vein of water becomes rather more contracted. The quan- tity thus found, therefore, is nearly accurate as an average. When the orifice and altitude are less than those in the table, a few cubic inches should be deducted from the result thus derived. The altitude of the fluid being multiplied by the coefficient 8'016 will give its theoretical velocity; and as the velocities are as the qnantities discharged, the real velocity may be deducted from the theoretical by means of the foregoing results. Table II, — To find the quantities of water disaharged ly tubes of different diameter, and under different heights of water. To find the quantity of water discharged by a cylindrical tube, 4 inches in diameter, and 8 inches long, the constant altitude of the water in the reservoir being 25 feet. Find, in the same manner as by the example to Table I., the theoretical quantity discharged, which is furnished by this analogy. 1 v^l5 : 16 ^/25 : : 16968 : 350490 cubic inches, the theoretical discharge. This, diminished in the ratio of 1 to -81 by the 4th column, will give 28473 cubic inches for the actual quantity dis- charged. If the tube be shorter than twice its diameter, the quantity discharged will be diminished, and approximate to that from a simple orifice, as shown by the production of the vena eoTi- tracta already described. According to Eytelwein, the proportion of the theoretical to tlie real discharge through tubes, is as follows : Through the shortest tube that will cause the stream to adhere everywhere to its sides, as 1 to 0-8125. Through short tubes, having their lengths from two to four times their diameters, as 1 to 0-82. Through a tube projecting within the reservoir, as 1 to 0-50. It should, however, be stated, that in the contraction of the stream the ratio is not constant. It undergoes perceptible varia- tions by altering the form and position of the orifice, the thickness of the plate, the form of the vessel, and the velocity of the issu- ing fluid. Dedtietions Jrom experiments made iy Bossut, MiclieUoti. 1. That the quantities of fluid discharged in equal times from different-sized apertures, the altitude of the fluid in the reser- voir being the same, are to each other nearly as the area of the aper- tures. 2, That the quantities of water discharged in equal times by the same orifice under different heads of water, are i?early as the square roots of the corresponding heights of water in the reservoir above the centre of the apertures. b,Google 320 TUE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCOLATOR. 3. That, in general, the quantities of water discharged, in the same time, bj different apertEres under different heights of water in the reservoir, are to one another in the compound ratio of the areas of the apertures, and the square roots of the altitudes of the water in the reservoirs. 4. That on account of the friction, the smallest orifice discharges proportionally less water than those which are larger and of a similar figure, under the same heads of water. 5. That, from the same cause, of several orifices whose areas are equal, that which has the smallest perimeter will discharge more water than the other, under the same altitudes of water in the reservoir. Hence, circular apertures are most advantageous, as they have less rubbing surface under the same area. 6. 'Xhat, in consequence of a slight augmentation which the contraction of the fluid vein undergoes, in proportion as the height of the fluid in the reservoir increases, the expenditure ought to be a little diminished. 7. That the discharge of a fluid through a cylindrical horiaontal tube, the diameter and length of which are equal to one another, is the same as through a simple orifice. 8. That if the cylindrical horizontal tube be of greater length than the extent of the diameter, the discharge of water is much increased. i). That the length of the cylindrical horizontal tube may be increased with advantage to four times the diameter of the onfice. 10. That the diameters of the apertures and altitudes of water in the reservoir being the same, the theoretic discharge through a thin aperture, which is supposed to have no contraction in the vein, the discharge through an additional cylindrical tube of greater length than the extent of its diameter, and the actual discharge through an aperture pierced in a thin substance, are to each other as the numbers 16, 13, 10. 11. That the discharges by diff'erent additional cylindrical tubes, under the same head of water, are nearly proportional to the areas of the orifices, or to the squares of the diameters of the orifices. 12. That the discharges by additional cylindrical tubes of the same diameter, under different heads of water, are nearly propor- tional to the square roots of the head of water, 13. That from the two preceding corollaries it folloivs, in gene- ral, that the dischai'ge during the same time, by ditlerent addi- tional tubes, and under different heads of water in the reservoir, are to one another nearly in the compound ratio of the squares of the diameters of the tubes, and the square roots of the heads of water. The discharge of fluids by additional tubes of a conical figure, when the inner to tlie outer diameter of tlie orifice is as '6'd to 2(), is augmented very nearly one-seventeenth and seveu-tcnths wore tlwu by cylindrical tubes, if the enlargement be not curried too far. hv Google HYDRAULICS. 321 DISCHARGE BY COMrOUND TUBES. Deductions from the experiments of M. Venturi. In the discharge by compound tubes, if the part of the addi- tional tube nearest the reservoir have the form of tho contracted vein, the expenditure will be the same as if the fluid were not con- tracted at all ; and if to the smallest diameter of this cone a cylin- drical pipe be attached, of the same diameter as the least section of the contracted vein, the discharge of the fluid will, in a horizon- tal direction, be lessened by the friction of the water against the side of the pipe ; but if the same tube be applied in a vertical direction, the expenditure will be augmented, on the principle of the gravitation of falling bodies; consequently, the greater the length of pipe, the more abundant is the discharge of fluid. If the additional compound tube Lave a cone applied to the op- posite extremity of the pipe, the expenditure will, under the same head of water, bo increased, in comparison with that through a simple orifice, in the ratio of 24 to 10. In order to produce this singular effect, the cone nearest to the reservoir must be of the form of the contracted vein, which will increase the expenditure in the ratio of 12-1 to 10. At the other extremity of the pipe, a truncated conical tube must be applied, of which the length must be nearly nine times the smaller diameter, and its outward diameter must be 1"8 times the smaller one. This additional cone will increase the discharge in tho proportion of 24 to 10. But if a great length of pipe intervene, this additional tube has little or no efl"oct on the quantity discharged. According to M. Venturi's experiments on the discharge of water by bent tubes, it appears that while, with a height of water in the reservoir of 32'5 inches, 4 Paris cubic feet were discharged through a cylindrical horizontal tube in the space of 45 seconds, the discharge of the same quantity through a tube of tho same diameter, with a curved end, occupied 50 seconds, and through a like tube bent at right angles, 70 seconds. Therefore, in making cocks or pipes for the discharge or conveyance of water, great attention should be paid to the nature and angle of the bondings ; right angles should be studiously avoided. The interruption of the discharge by various enlargements of the diameter of the tubes having been investigated by Si. Venturi, by means of a tube with a diameter of 9 lines, enlarged in several parts to a diameter of 24 lines, the retardation was found to in- crease nearly in proportion to the number of enlargements ; the motion of the fluid, in passing into the enlarged parts, being diverted from its direct course into eddies against the sides of the enlargements. From which it may be deduced, that if the inter- nal roughness of a pipe diminish the expenditure, the friction of the water against these asperities does not form any considerable part of the cause. A right-lined tube may have its internal sur- face highly polished throughout its whole length, and it may every- hv Google ,122 THE PRACTICAL MOI>EL CALCULATOE. whore possess a diameter greater than the orifice to wliich it is applied; but, nevertheless, the expenditure will be greatly retarded if the pipe should have enlarged parts or swellings. It is not enough that elbows and contractiona be avoided ; for it may hap- pen, by an intermediate enlargement, that the whole of the other advantage may be lost. This will be obvious from the results in the following table, deduced from experiments with tubes having various enlargements of diameter. Head of wnter in inches. Number of en- iarged parts.

On account of the friction against the sides, the less the dia- meter of the pipe, the less proportionally is the discharge of fluid. And, from the same cause, the greater the length of conduit pipe, the greater the diminution of the discharge. Hence, the dis- charges made in equal times by horizontal pipes of different lengths, hut of the same diameter, and under the same altitude of water, are to one another in the inverse ratio of the square roots of the lengths. In order to have a perceptible and continuous discharge of fluid, the altitude of the water in the reservoir, above the axis of the conduit pipe, must not he less than If inch for every ISO feet of the length of the pipe. The ratio of the difl'erence of discharge in pipes, 16 and 24 lines diameter respectively, may be known by comparing the ratios of Table I. with the ratios of Table II., in the following page. The greater the angle of inclination of a conduit pipe, the greater will be the discharge in a given time ; but when the angle of the conduit pipo is 6° 31', or the depression of the lower extre- mity of the pipe is one-eighth or one-ninth of its length, the rela- tive gravity of the fluid will ho counterbalanced by the resistance or friction against the sides ; and the discharge is then the same as by an additional horizontal tube of the same diameter. A curvilinear pipe, the altitude of the water in the reservoir being the same, discharges less water when the flexures lie horizontally, than a rectilinear pipe of the same diameter and length. The discharge by a curvilinear pipe of the same diameter and length, and under the same head of water, is still further dimi- nished when the flexures lie in a vertical instead of a horizontal plane. When there is a number of contrary flexures in a large pipe, the air sometimes lodges in the highest parts of the flexures, and greatly retards the motion of the water, unless prevented by air-holes, or stopcocks. hv Google HYDEAULICS.

Tlie velocity varying nearly as tho square root of the height, may here be represented hj tho ordinates of a parabola, and the quantity of water discharged by the area of the parabola, or two-thirda of that of the circumscribing rectangle. So that the quantity discharged may be found by taking two-thirds of the velo- city due to the mean height, and allowing for tlie contraction of the stream, according to the form of the opening. In a lake, for example, in the side of which a rectangular open- ing is made without any oblique lateral walls, three feet wide, and hv Google 324 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. extending two feet below the surfaco of the water, the coefficient of the velocity, corrected for contraction, is 5'1, and the corrected mean velocity | \/2 X 5'1 = 4'8 ; therefore the area being 6, the discharge of water in a second is 28'8 cubic feet, or nearly four The same coefficient serves for determining the discharge over a weir of considerable breadth ; and, hence, to deduce the depth or breadth requisite for the discharge of a given quantity of water. For example, a lake baa a weir three feet in breadth, and the sur- face of the water stands at the height of five feet above it : it is required how much the weir must be ividened, in order that the water may be a foot lower. Here the velocity ia f v/5 X 5'1, and the quantity of water § \/5 X 5-1 x 3 X 5 ; but the velocity must be re- 2 /^ X 5 '1 X 3 X 5 ducedtof -/i X 5-1, andthen the section will bo ■'^ = — — § ■/4 X 51 = — — = = 7'5 X \/5 ; and the height being 4, the breadth must be -7- \/5 = 4-19 feet. The diacbargc from reservoira, with lateral orifices of consider- able magnitude, and a constant head of water, may be found by determining the difi'erence in the discharge by two open orifices of different heights ; or, in most cases, with nearly equal accuracy, by considering the velocity due to the distance, below the surface, of the centre of gravity of the orifice. Under the same height of water in the reservoir, the same quan- tity always flows in a canal, of whatever length and declivity ; but in a tube, a difference in length and declivity has a great effect on the quantity of water discharged. The velocity of water flowing ia a river or stream varies at dif- ferent parts of the same transverse section. It ia found to be greatest where the water is deepest, at somewhat less than one- naif the depth from the surface ; diminishing towards the sides and shallow parts. Jtemtance to bodies moving infinids. — The deductions from the experiments of C. Colles, (who first planned the Croton Aqueduct, Now York,) and others, on this intricate subject, are, as stated, thus : 1. The confirmation of the theory, that the resistance of fluids to passing bodies is as the squares of the velocities. 2. That, contrary to the received opinion, a cone will move through the water with much less resistance with its apex foremost, than with its base forward, 3. That the increasing the length of a solid, of almost any form, by the addition of a cylinder in the middle, diminbhes the resist- ance with which it moves, provided the weight in the water remains the same. hv Google HYDRAULICS, 325 4, That the greatest breadth of the moving hody should be placed at tho distance of two-fifths of the whole length from the how, when applied to the ordinary forms in naval architecture. 5. That the bottom of a floating solid should be made triangu- lar ; as in that case it will meet with the least resistance when moving in the direction of ita longest axis, and with the greatest resistance when moving with its broadside foremost. F]-iction. of fluids. — Some experiments have been made on this subject, with reference to the motion of bodies in water, upon a cylindrical model, 30 inches in length, 26 inches in diameter, and weighing 255 lbs. avoirdupois. The cylinder was placed in a cis- tern of salt water, and made to vibrate on knife-edges passing through its axis, and was deflected over to various angles by means of a weight attached to the arm of a lever. The esperiments were then repeated without the water, and the following are the angles of deflection and vibration in the two cases.

Showing that the amplitude of vibration when oscillating in water is considerably less than when oscillating without water. In the experiments there is a falling off in the angle of 24', or nearly half a degree. The amount of force acting on the surface of the cylinder necessary to cause the above difference was calculated; and tho author thinks that it is not equally distributed on the surface of the cylinder, but that the amount on any particular part might vary as the depth. On this supposition, a constant pressure at a unit of depth is assumed, and this, multiplied by the depth of any other point of the cylinder immersed in the water, will give the pressure at that point. These forces or momenta being summed by integration and equated with the sum of the moments given by the experiments, we have the value of the con- stant pressure at a unit of depth = ■0000469. This constant, in another experiment, the weight of the model being 197 lbs. avoir- dupois, and consequently the part immersed in the water being dif- ferent from that in the other experiment, was '0000452, which differs very little from the former, — indicating the probability of the correctness of the assumption. The drainage of water through pipes. — The experiments made under the direction of the Metropolitan Commissioners of Sewers, on the capadties of pipes for the drainage of towns, have presented some useful results for the guidance of those who have to make hv Google 326 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. calculations for a similar purpose. The pipes, of various dia- meters, from 3 to 12 inches, were laid on a platform of 100 feet in length, the declivity of which could be varied from a horizontal level to a, fall of 1 in 10, The water was admitted at the head of the pipe, and at five junctions, or tributary pipes on each side, so regulated as to keep the main pipe full. The results were as follow : — It was found — to mention only one result — that a line of 6-inch pipes, 100 feet long, at an inclination of 1 in 60, discharged 75 Cubic feet per minute. The same experiment, repeated with the line of ?ipes reduced to 50 feet in length, gave very nearly the same result. Vithout the addition of junctions, the transverse sectional area of the stream of water near the discharging end was reduced to one- fifth of the corresponding area of the pipe, and it required a sim- ple head of water of about 212 inches to give the same result as that accruing under the circumstances of the junctions. AVith regard to varying sizes and inclinations, it appears, sufSciently for practical purposes, that the squares of the discharges are as the fifth powers of the diameters ; and again, that In steeper declivi- ties than 1 in 70, the discharges are as the square roots of the inclinations ; but at less declivities than 1 in 70, the ratios of the discharges diminish very rapidly, and are governed by no constant law. At a certain small declivity, the relative discharge is as the. fifth root of the inclination ; at a smaller declivity, it is found as the seventh root of the inclination ; and so on, as it approaches the horizontal plane. This may be exemplified by the following results found by actual experiment : Discharges of a 6-mchpipe at several inclinations.

That at greater declivities than 1 in 70, tho discharges are as the square roots of the inclinations. hv Google WATER WHEELS. 02 i That at less declivities ttan 1 in 70, titc usual law will not obtain ; but near approximations to the trutli may be obtained by observing the relative discltarges of a pipe laid at various small inciinatioas. That increasing the number of junctions, at intervals, accele- rates the velocity of the main stream in a ratio which increases as the square root of the inclination, and which is greater than the ratio of resistance due to a proportionable increase in the length of the aqueduct. The velocity at which the lateral streams enter the main line, is a most important circumstance governing the flovt' of water. In practice, these velocities are constantly variable, considered individually, and always different considered collectively, so that their united effect it is difficult to estimate. Again, the same sewer at different periods may be quite filled, but discharges in a given time very different quantities of water. It should be mentioned that in the case of the 6-inch pipe, which discharged 75 euhic feet per minute, tho lateral streams had a velocity of a few feet per second, and the junctions were placed at an angle of about 35° with the main line. It is needless to say that all junctions should be made as nearly parallel with the main lino as possible, otherwise the forces of the lateral currents may impedo rather than maintain or accelerate the main streams. WATER WHEELS. TUE IJXDtaSIIOT WHEEL. The ratio between the power and effect of an undershot T;heel is as 10 to 3'18 ; consequently 31'43 lbs. of water must be expended per second to produce a mechanical effect equal to that of the esti- mated labour of an active man. The velocity of the periphery of the undershot wheel should bo equal to half the velocity of the stream ; the float-boards should be ao constructed as to rise perpendicularly from the water ; not more than one-half should ever be below the surface ; and from 3 to 5 should be immersed at once, according to the magnitude of the wheel. The following maxims have been deduced from experiments : — 1. The virtual or effective head of water being the same, the effect will he nearly as the quantity expended ; that is, if a mill, driven by a fall of water, whose virtual head is 10 feet, and which discharges 30 cubic feet of water in a second, grind four bolls of corn in an hour ; another mill having the same virtual head, hut which discharges 60 cubic feet of water, will grind eight hulls of corn in an hour. 2. The expense of water being the same, the effect will be nearly as the height of the virtual or effective head. 3.

The height of the virtual head of water may be easily deter- mined from the velocity of the water, for the heights are as the squares of the velocities, and, consequently, the velocities are as the square roots of the height. To calculate the proportions of undershot wheels. — Find the per- pendicular height of the fall of water above the bottom of the mill- course, and having diminished this number by one-half the depth of the water where it meets the wheel, call that the height of the fall. Multiply the height of the fall, so found, by 64-348, and take the square root of the product, which will be the veloeity of the water. Take one-half of the velocity of the water, and it will be the velocity to be given to the fioat-boards, or the number of feet they must move through in a second, to produce a maximum effect. Divide the circumference of the wheel by the velocity of its fioat- boards per second, and the quotient will be the number of seconds in which the wheel revolves. Divide 60 by the quotient thus found, and the new quotient will be the number of revolutions made by the wheel in a minute. Divide 90, the number of revolutions which a millstone, 5 feet in diameter, should make in a minute, by the number of revolutions made by the wheel in a minute, the quotient will be the number of turns the millstone ought to make for one turn of the wheel. Then, as the number of revolutions of the wheel in a minute is to the number of revolutions of the millstouo in a minute, so must the number of staves in the trundle bo to the number of teeth in the wheel, (the nearest in whole numbers.) Multiply the number of revolutions made by the wheel in a minute, by the number of revolutions made by the millstone for one turn of the wheel, and the product will be the number of revolutions made by the millstone in a minute. The efi'ect of tlie water wheel is a maximum, when its circum- ference moves with one-half, or, more accurately, with three- sevenths of the velocity of the stream. THE BKEAST WUEEL. The efi'ect of a breast wheel is equal to the efi'ect of an under shot wheel, whose head of water is equal to the difference of level hv Google WATER WnBELS. 329 between the surface of water in tlio reservoir, and the part whero it strikes tlie wheel, added to that of an overshot, wlioso Iicight is equal to the difference of level between tlie part where it strikes the wheel and the level of the tail water. When the fall of water is between 4 and 10 feet, a breast wheel should be erected, provided there be enough of water ; an undershot should be used when the fall is below -1 feet, and an overshot wheel when the fall exceeds 10 feet. Also, i\-hen the fall exceeds 10 feet, it should be divided into two, and two breast wheels be erected upon it. Table for breast wheels. 3i ti Ills 1.

Tho ninth column contains the quantity of water necessary for impelling tho wheel ; but the total expense of water should always exceed this by the quantity, at least, which escapes between the mill-course and the sides and extremities of the float-boards. THE OVERSHOT WHEEL. The ratio between the power and effect of an overshot wheel, is aa 10 to 6'6, when the water is delivered above the npex of the wheel, and is computed from the whole height of the fall ; and as 10 to 8 when computed from the height of the wheel only ; con- sequently, the quantity of water expended per second, to produce a mechanical eff'ect equal to that of the aforesaid estimated labour of an active man, is, in the first instance, 15'15 lbs., and in the second instance, 12-5 lbs. Hence, the effect of the overshot wheel, under the same circum- hv Google o30 THE PKACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. Stances of quantity and fall, is, at a medium, double that of the undershot. The velocity of the periphery of an overshot wheel should be from 6^ to 8^ feet per second. The higher the wheel is, in proportion to the whole descent, the greater will be the effect. And from the equality of the ratio between the power and effect, subsisting where the constructions are similar, we must infer that the effects, as well as the powers, are as the quantities of water and perpendicular heights multiplied together respectively. Worhmg machinery hyhydraulio pressure. — The vertical pressure of water, acting on a piston, for raising weights and driving machi- nery, is coming into use in many places where it can be advantage- ously applied. At Liverpool, Newcastle, Glasgow, and other places, it is applied to the working of cranes, drawing coal-wagons, and other purposes requiring continuous power. The presence of a natm-a! fall, like that of Golway, Ireland, which can be conducted to the engine through pipes, is, of course, the most economical situatioit for the application of such power ; in other situations, artificial power must be used to raise the water, which, even under this disadvantage, may, from its readiness and simplicity of action, be often serviceably em- ployed. WTierever the contiguity of a steam engine would be dan- gerous, or otherwise objectionable, a water engine would afford the means of receiving and applying the power from any required dis- tance, precautions being taken against the action of frost on the fluid.

Results of Experiments on the effect of Windmill Sails in grind- ing corn. — By M. Coulomb. A windmill, with four sails, measuring 72 feet from the ex- tremity of one sail to that of the opposite one, and 6 feet 7 inches wide, or a little more, was found capable of raising 1100 lbs. avoir- dupois 238 feet in a minute, and of working, on an average, eight hours in a day. This is equivalent to the work of 34 men, 30 square feet of canvas performing about the daily work of a man. When a vertical windmill is employed to grind corn, the mill- stone makes 5 revolutions in the same time that the sails and the arbor make 1. The mill does not begin to turn till the velocity of the wind is about 13 feet per second. When the velocity of the wind is 19 feet per second, the sails make from 11 to 12 turns in a minute, and the mil! will grind from 880 to 990 lbs. avoirdupois in an hour, or about 22,000 lbs. in 24 hours. hv Google THE APPLICATION OF LOGAKITHMS. The practice of performing calculations by Logarithms is an ex- ercise so useful to computers, that it requires a more particular ex- planation than could have been properly given in that part of the work allotted to Arithmetic. A few of the various applications of logarithms, best suited to the calculations of the engineer and mechanic, have therefore been collected, and are, with other matter, given, in hopes that they will come into general use, as the certainty and accuracy of their re- sults can be more safely relied upon and more easily obtained than with common arithmetic. By a slight examination, the student will perceive, in some de- gree, the nature and effect of these calculations; and, by frequent exercise, will obtain a dexterity of operation in every case admitting of their use. He will also more readily penetrate the plans of the different devices employed in instrumental calculations, which are rendered obscure and perplexing to most practical men by their ig- norance of the proper application of logarithms. Logarithms are artificial numbers which staad for natural num- bers, and are so contrived, that if the logarithm of one number be added to the logarithm of another, the sum will be the logarithm of the product of these numbers ; and if the logarithm of one num- ber be taken from the logarithm of another, the remainder is the logarithm of the latter divided by the former ; and also, if the loga- rithm of a number be multiplied by 2, 3, 4, or 5, &c., we shall have the logarithm of the square, cube, &o., of that number ; and, on the other hand, if divided by 2, 8, 4, or 5, &c., we have the logarithm of the square root, cube root, fourth root, &c., of the proposed num- ber ; so that with the aid of logarithms, multiplication and division are performed by addition and subtraction ; and the raising of powers and extracting of roots are effected by multiplying or di- viding by the indices of the powers and roots. In the table at the end of this work, are given the logarithms of the natural numbers, from !■ to 1000000 by the help of differences ; in large tables, only the decimal part of the logarithm is given, as the index is readily determined ; for the index of the logarithm of any number greater than unity, is equal to one less than the num- ber of figures on the left hand of the decimal point ; thus, The index of 12345- is i; 1234-5 _ Z; 12g-4o - 2; 12-345 - 1-, 1-2345 - 0- hv Google THE APPLICATION OP LOGAEITIIMS. 335 The index of any decimal fraction is a negative number equal to one and the number of zeros immediately following the decimal point ; thus, The index of -00012345 is -4- or 4- -0012345 is -3- or ^- -012345 ii -2- or 2- -12345 is -1- or 1- Eecanse the decimal part of the logarithm is always positive, it is better to place the negative sign of the index above, instead of before it; thus, 3"- instead of -3. For the log. of -00012345 is better expressed by 4-0914911, than by — 4'0914911, because only the index is negative — i. e., 4 is negative and -0914911 is positive, and may stand thus, —4- + ■0914911. Sometimes, instead of employing negative indices, their comple- ments to 10 are used : for J-0914911 is substituted 6-0914911 — 3-0914911 7-0914911 — 2-0914911 8-0914911 &c. ko. "When this is done, it is necessary to allow, at some subsequent stage, for the tens by which the indices have thus been increased. It is so easy to take logarithms and their corresponding numbers out of tables of logarithms, that we need not dwell on the method of doing so, but proceed to their application. MULTIPLICATION BY LOGAEITHMS. Take the logarithms of the factors from the tabic, and add them together ; then the natural number answering to the sum is the product required : observing, in the addition, that what is to be carried from the decimal parts of the logarithms is always positive, and must therefore be added to the positive indices ; the differencehe- tween this sum and the sum of the negative indices is the index of the logarithm of the product, to which prefix the sign of the greater, This method will be found more convenient to those who have only a slight knowledge of logarithms, than that of using tJic aritli- metical complements of the negative indices. 1.

We shall next give a simple method of multiplying any number by any power of 11 , 101, 1001, 10001, 100001, kc.

Let it be required to multiply 54247 by (101)'. The number must be divided into periods of two figures when the multiplier is 101 ; into periods of three figures when the multiplier is 1001 ; into periods of four figures when the multiplier is 10001 ; and so on. e ct b "1 54 24 70 0000 1 3 25 48 2000 6 8 13 70150 I 15 10 84'94 c 20 1 8|14 d 15 1 3 e 6 true to 10 pi (542«) X (101)' = m 58 42 83 61 This operation is readily understood, since the multipliers for the 6th power are 1, 6, 15, 20, 15, 6, 1 ; we begin at a, a period in ad- vance, and multiply by 6 ; then we commence at b, two periods in advance, and multiply by 15 ; at c, three periods in advance, and multiply by 20 ; at d, four periods in advance {counting from the right to the left), and multiply by 15 ; the period, e, should be multiplied by 6, but, as it is blank, we only set down the 3 carried from multiplying d, or its first figure by 6. As it is extremely easy to operate with 1, 5, 10, 10, 5, 1, the multipliers for the 5th power, it may be more convenient first to multiply the given number by (101)', and then by (101)' ; because, to multiply any number by 5, we have only to affix a cipher (or suppose it affixed) and to take the half of the result.

The manner in which B 7 ia obtained is worthy of remarli : the multipliers being 1, 7, 21, 35, 35, 21, 7, 1, when 7 times the first line (commencing with the period marked a) is obtained, 21 times the same line (commencing with the period marked 6) is determined by multiplying the 2d line by 3. If the 2d lino be again multiplied by 5, we have the 4th line of the multiplier 35; but to multiply by 5, we have only to take tho half the product produced by mul- tiplying by 7, advancing the result one figure to the right. Hence, to find the result for 35 is almost as easy as to find the result for 5. But the object in this case being to bring the proposed number to 35502601815, the process must be continued. c \ b\ a\ 1 351 ToOiSOl 8 = B 7, as above. 9 3|l6581l!2 36 12 663 2 84 29'6 354 935 3058 = C9 The 2d (or 9) line is produced by beginning at a, but the multi- plication may be performed by subtracting 3517568 from 35175680 ; the 36 line is produced by beginning at f>, observing to carry from the preceding figure, making the usual allowance when the number is followed by 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9. The 36 line may be produced by multiplying tho 9 line by 4, beginning one period more to the left. To multiply by 84 is not apparently so convenient, for 84 x 352 = 29|568 ; and as only one figure of the period 568 is required, when the proper allowance is made, the result becomes 29|6. But, since 84 is equal to 36 x 2^, we have only to multiply tho 36 line by 2, aud add J of it ; with such management, the work will stand thus : — 351]756r801l8 = E 7, as before 3|165|Sll|2 = 9 times 12|60.3j2 = 36 times 24 3 = 72 times \ 42 = 12 times/ 84 times 354 035 305 8 = C 9 This amounts to very little more than adding tho above numbers together.

TO DETBBMIHB THE NUMBER CORRESPOKDISG TO A GIVEN LOGARITHM. This problem has been very mueli neglected — so much so, that none of our elementary books ever allude to a method of comput- ing the number answering to a given logarithm. When an opera- tion is performed by the use of logarithms, it ia very seldom that the resulting logarithm can be found in .the table ; we have, there- fore, to find the nearest less logarithm, and the next greater, and correct them by proportion, so that there may be found an inter- mediate number that will agree with the given logarithm, or nearly 80. But although the proportional parts of the difference abridge thia process, we can only find a number appertaining to any loga- rithm to seven places of figures when using our best modern tables. As, however, the tabular logarithms extend only to a degree of approximation, fixed generally at seven decimal places, all of which, except those answering to the number 10 and its powers, err, either in excess or defect, the maximum limit of which is ^ in the last decimal, and since both errors may conspire, the 7th figure cannot be depended on as strictly true, unless the proposed logarithm falls between the Hmits of log. 10000 and log. 22200. Indubitably we are now speaking of extreme cases, but since it is not an unfrequcnt occurrence that some calculations require the most rigid accuracy, and many resulting logarithms may be ex- tended beyond the limits of the table, this subject ought to have a place in a work like the present. It is not part of the present design to enter into a strict or formal demonstration of the follow- ing mode of finding the number corresponding to a given logarithm, as the operation will be fully explained by suitable examples.

SPHERICAL TRIGONOJIETEY.- ANGULAR MAGNITUDES. Plane trigonometry treats of the relations and calculations of the sidesand angles of plane triangles. The circumference of every circle is supposed to be divided into 360 equal parts, called degrees ; also each degree into 60 minutes, each minute into 60 seconds, and so on. Hence a semicircle contains 180 degrees, and a quadrant 90 de- grees. The measure of any angle is an arc of any circle contained be- tween the two lines which form that angle, the angular point being the centre ; and it is estimated by the number of degrees contained in that arc. Hence, a right angle being measured by a quadrant, or quarter of the circle, is an angle of 90 degrees; and the sum of the three angles of every triangle, or two right angles, is equal to 180 de- grees. Therefore, in a right-angled triangle, taking one of the acute angles from 90 degrees, leaves the other acute angle ; and the sum of two angles, in any triangle, taken from 180 degrees, leaves the third angle ; or one angle being taken from 180 degrees, leaves the sum of the other two angles. Degrees are marked at the top of the figure with a small ", mi- nutes with ', seconds with ", and so on. Thus, 57° 30' 12" de- note 57 degrees 30 minutes and 12 seconds. The complement of an arc, is what it wants of a quadrant or 90°, Thus, if AD he a quadrant, then BD is the complement of the arc AB ; and, reciprocally, AB is the complement of BD. So ^ that, if AB he an arc of 50°, then its complement BD will be 40°. The supplement of an arc, is what it wants o a semicircle, or 180°. Thus, if ADE be a semicircle, then BDE is the supplement of the arc AB ; and, reciprocally, AB is the sup- plement of the arc BDE. So that, if AB he an arc of 50°, then its supplement BDE will be 130°. The sine, or right sine, of an arc, is the line drawn from one extremity of the arc, perpendicular to the diameter passing tiirough the other extremity. Thus, BF is the sine of the arc AB, or of the arc BDE. Hence the sine (BF) is half the chord (BG) of the double arc (BAG). The versed sine of an arc, is the part of the diameter intercepted between the arc and its sine. So, AF is the versed sine of the arc AB, and EF the versed sine of the arc EDB. hv Google 3{!0 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOE. The tangent of an are is a line touching the circle in one ex- tremity of that arc, continued from thence to meet a Ime Jidivu from the centre through the other extremity: fthich last line is called the secant of the same arc. Thus, AH is the tangent, anJ CII the secant, of the arc AB. Also, EI is the tangent, ami CI the secant, of the euppleiaental are BDE. And this latter tangent and secant are equal to the former, but are accounted negative, as being drawn in an opposite or contrary direction to the former. The cosine, cotangent, and cosecant, of an arc, are the sine, tangent, and secant of the complement of that arc, the co being only a contraction of the word complement. Thus, the arcs AB, ED being the complements of each other, the sine, tangent or se- cant of the one of these, is the cosine, cotangent or cosecant of the other. So, BF, the sine of AE, is the cosine of ED ; and BK, the sine of ED, is the cosine of AB : in iike manner, AH, the tangent of AB, is the cotangent of ED ; and DL, the tangent of DB, is the cotangent of AB : also, CH, the secant of AB, is the cosecant of BD ; and CL, the secant of ED, is the cosecant of AB. Hence several remarkable properties easily follow from these definitions ; as. That an arc and its supplement have the same sine, tangent, and secant ; but the two latter, the tangent and secant, are accounted negative when the are is greater than a quadrant or 90 degrees. When the arc is 0, or nothing, the sine and tangent are nothing, but tho secant is then the radius CA. But when the arc is a quadrant AD, then the sine is the greatest it can be, being the ra- dius CD of the circle ; and both the tangent and secant are infinite. Of any arc AE, the versed sine AF, and cosine BK, or CF, together make up the radius CA of the circle. The radius CA, tangent AH, and secant CH, form a right-angled triangle CAH. So also do the radius, sine, and cosine, form another right-angled triangle CBF or CEK. As also the radius, cotangent, and cosecant, another right- angled triangle CDL. And all these right-angled triangles are similar to each other. The sine, tangent, or secant of an angle, is the sine, tangent, or secant of the arc by which the angle is mea- . sured, or of the degrees, &c. in the same ^ arc or angle. The method of constructing the scales of chords, sines, tangents, and secants, usually engraven on instruments, for practice, is exhibited in the annexed hv Google TEIOONOMETRT. 301 A trigonometrical canon, is a table exhibiting the length of the sine, tangent, and secant, to every degree and minute of the quad- rant, with respect to the radius, which is expressed by unity, or 1, and conceived to he divided into 10000000 or more decimal parts. And further, the logarithma of these sines, tangents, and secants are also ranged in the tables ; which are most commonly used, as they perform the calculations by only addition and subtraction, instead of tho multiplication and division by the natural sines, kc, according to the nature of logarithms. Upon this table depends the numeral solution of the several cases in trigonometry. It will therefore be proper to begin with tho mode of constructing it, which may he done in the following To find the sine and cosine of a given are. This problem is resolved after various ways. One of these is as follows, viz. by means of the ratio between the diameter and cir- cumference of a circle, together with the known series for the sine and cosine, hereafter demonstrated. Thus, the semi-circumference of the circle, whose radius is 1, being 3-1415926535897S3, kc, the proportion will therefore be, As the number of degrees or minutes in the semicircle, Is to the degrees or minutes in the proposed arc. So is 3-14159265, &c., to the length of the said arc. This length of the arc being denoted by the letter a; also its sine and cosine by g ami c; then will these two be expressed by the two following series, viz. :— ^ = '^- 2l'^2:SAl ~ 2.3.4.5.6.7 + ^^• = "^ ~ "6 + 120 ~ 5040 + ^'^• ■ 2.3.4 2.3.4.5.6 ' + ^-TM + ^ 24 720 If it be required to find the sine and cosine of one minute. Then, the number of minutes in 180° being 10800, it will be first, as 10800 : 1 : : 3-14159265, &c. : -000290888208665 = the length of an arc of one minute. Therefore, in this case, a = -0002908882 ■000000000004, &c. ■0002908882 the sine of 1 minute. and ^a^ = the dilFerence is s = Also, from take Jd^ = leaves c = ■0000000423079, &c. 9999999577 the cosim hv Google 3G2 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCL^LATOR. For the sine and cosine of 5 degrees. Here, as 180° : 5° : : 3-14159265, &c., : -08720 length, of 5 degrees. Hence, a = -08726646 _ ifflS = - -00011076 + Jjffl* = -00000004 these collected give s = -08715074 the si And, for the cosine, 1=1- - la^ = _ -00380771 + la-' = -00000241 these collected, give c = -99619470 the consine of 5°. After the same manner, the sine and cosine of any other arc may he computed. But the greater the arc is, the slower the series will converge, in ivhich case a greater number of terms must be taken to bring out the conclusion to the same degree of exactness. Or, having found the sine, the cosine will be found from it, by the property of the right-angled triangle CEF, viz. the cosine CF = ^/CB' - EF^ or e = v'T^^=. There are also other methods of constructing the canon of sines and cosines, which, for brevity's sake, are here omitted. To conijiute the tangents and secants. The sines and cosines being known, or found, by the foregoing problem ; the tangents and secants will be easily found, from the principle of similar triangles, in the following manner : — In the first figure, where, of the are AB, BF is the sine, CF or BK the cosine, AH the tangent, CH the secant, DL the cotangent, and CL the cosecant, the radius being CA, or CB, or Cl>; the three similar triangles CFB, CAH, CJDL, give the following pro- portions : 1. CF : FB ; : CA : AH ; Trhence the tangent is known, being a, fourth proportional to the cosine, sine, and radius. 2. CF ; CB : : CA : CH; whence the secant is known, being a third proportional to the cosine and radius. 3. BF : FO ; : CD : DL ; whence the cotangent is known, being a fourth proportional to the sine, cosine, and radius. 4. BF : EC : : CD : CL ; whence the cosecant is known, being a third proportional to the sine and radius. Having given an idea of the calculations of sines, tangents, and secants, we may now proceed to resolve the several cases of trigo- nometry; previous to which, however, it may be proper to add a few preparatory notes and observations, as below. There are usually three methods of resolving triangles, or the cases of trigonometry — namely, geometrical construction, arith- metical computation, and instrumental operation. In tlie first method. — The triangle is constructed by making the parts of the given magnitudes, namely, the sides from a scale of hv Google laiGOKOMETET. 6b6 equal parts, and the angles from a scale of cliords, or by some other instrument. Then, measuring the unknown parts by the same scales or instruments, the solution will be obtained near the truth. In the second method. — Having stated the terms of the propor- tion according to the proper rule or theorem, resolve it like any other proportion, in which a fourth term is to he found from three given terms, by muItiplyiDg the second and third together, and dividing the product by the first, in working with the natural num- bers; or, in working with the logarithms, add the logs, of the second and third terms together, and from the sum take the log. of the first term ; then the natural number answering to the re- mainder is the fourth term sought. In the third method. — Or ins t rumen tally, aa suppose by the log. lines on one side of the common two-foot scales ; extend the com- passes from the first terra to the second or third, which happens to be of the same kind with it ; then that extent will reach from the other term to the fourth term, as required, taking both extents towards the same end of the scale. In every triangle, or case in trigonometry, there must be given three parts, to find the other three. And, of the three parts that are given, one of them at least must be a side ; because the same angles are common to an infinite number of triangles. All the cases in trigonometry may be comprised in three vari- eties only ; viz. 1. When a side and its opposite angle are given. 2. When two sides and the contained angle are given. 3. When the three aides are given. For there cannot possibly be more than these three varieties of cases ; for each of which it will therefore be proper to give a sepa- rate theorem, as follows : When a side and its opposite angle are two of the given parts. Then the sides of the triangle have the same proportion to each other, aa the sines of their opposite angles have. That is. As any one side, Is to the sine of its opposite angle ; So is any other aide, To the sine of its opposite angle. ^ ¥or, let ABO he the proposed triangle, hai AB the greatest aide, and BO the least. Take AD = EC, considering it as a radius ; and let ^ fall the perpendiculars DE, CF, which will evi- a ^ • □ dently be the sines of the angles A and B, to the radius AD or BO. But the triangles ADE, ACF, are equiangular, and there- fore AO : CF ; : AD or BC : DE ; that is, AC is to the sine of its opposite angle B, as BC to the sine of its opposite angle A. In practice, to find an angle, begin the proportion with a side hv Google 364 THE PILAGirCAL MODEL CALCULATOR. opposite a given angle. And to find a side, begin ivitli an angle opposite a given side. An angle found by this rule is ambiguous, or uncertain whether it be acute or obtuse, unless it be a right angle, or unless its mag- nitude be such as to prevent the ambiguity ; because the sine an- swers to two angles, which are supplements to each other ; and accordingly the geometrical construction forms two triangles with the same parts that are given, as in the example below ; and when there is no restriction or limitation included in the question, either of them may be taken. The degrees in the table, answering to the sine, are the acute angle ; but if the angle be obtuse, subtract those degrees from 180°, and the remainder will be the obtuse angle. When a given angle is obtuse, or a right one, there can be no am- biguity ; for then neither of the other angles can be obtuse, and the geometrical construction will form only one triangle.

With a radius of 232, taken from the same scale of equal parts, and centre B, cross AC in the two points C, C. Lastly, join BC, BC, and the figure is constructed, which gives two triangles, showing that the case is ambiguous. Then, the sides AC measured by the scale of equal parts, and the angles B and C measured by the line of chords, or other in- strument, will be found to be nearly as below; viz.

Hence, because it is known that the half sum of any two quan- tities increased by their half difference, gives the greater, and di- minished by it gives the less, if the half difference of the angles, so found, be added to their half sum, it will give the greater angle, and subtracting it will leave the less angle. Then, all the angles being now known, the unknown side will be found bj the former theorem. Let ABG be the proposed triangle, having r the two given sides AG, BC, including the given , angle C.

Again, the exterior angle CDA is equal to the two interior angles B and DAB ; therefore, the angle DAB is equal to the difference between CDA and B, or between CAD and B; consequently, the same angle DAB is equal to half the difference of the unknown angles B and CAB ; of which it has been shown that CDA is the half sum. Now the angle DAE, in a semicircle, is a right angle, or AE is perpendicular to AD ; and DF, parallel to AU, is also perpendicular 2r2 hv Google Sbb THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. to AD : consequently, AE is the tangent of CDA tte half aum and DF the tangent of DAB the half difference of the angles, to the same radius AD, by the definition of a tangent.

Accessible lines are measured by applying to them some certain measure a number of times, as an inch, or foot, or yard. But in- accessible lines must be measured by taking angles, or by some such method, drawn from the principles of geometry. When instruments are used for taking the magnitude of the hv Google 370 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. angles in degrees, the lines are then calculated bj trigonometry : in the other methods, the linos are calculated from the princi- ple of similar triangles, without regard to the measure of the angles. Angles of elevation, or of depression, are usually taten either with a theodolite, or with a quadrant, divided into degrees and mi- nutes, and furnished with a plummet suspended from the centre, and two sides fixed on one of the radii, or else with telescopic sights. To take an angle of altitude and depression with the quadrant. Let A be any object, as the sun, a moon, or a star, or the top of a tower, ,-' or hill, or other eminence; and let it ^.'■''^ be required to find the measure of the y'' angle ABC, which a line drawn from ^,-'' the object makes with the horizontal line BC. Fix the centre of the quadrant in the angular point, and move it round there aa a centre, tilt with ono eye at D, the other being shut, jou perceive the object A through the sights : then will the arc Gil of tho quadrant, cut off by the plumb line BH, be the measure of the angle ABC, as required. "<F The angle ABC of depression of any ob- ject A, is taken in the same manner ; except that here the eye is applied to the centre, and tho measure of the angle is the arc GH, on \ the other side of the plumb line. \ \. The following examples arc to be constructed and calculated by the foregoing methods, treated of in trigonometry. Having measured a distance of 200 feet, in a direct horizontal line, from the bottom of a steeple, the angle of elevation of its top, taken at that distance, was found to be 47° 30': from hence it is required to find the height of the steeple.

As the sides and angles of spherical triangles are measured by circular arcs, and as these arcs are often greater than 90°, it may be necessary to mention one or two particulars respecting them. The arc CB, which when added to AB makes up a quadrant or 90°, is called the complement of the arc AB ; every arc will have a complement, even those which are themselves greater than 90°, provided wo con- sider the ares measured in the direc- tion ABCD, &e., as positive, and consequently those measured in the opposite direction as negative. The complement BC of the arc AE com- mences at B, where AB terminates, and may be considered aa generated by the motion of B, the ex- 2G hv Google 374 TUE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. tremity of the radius OB, iu the direction EC. But the eomplo- meat of the arc AD or DC, commencing in like manner at the ex- tremity D, must be generated by the motion of D in the opposite direction, and the angular magnitude AOD will hero be diminished by the motion of OD, in generating the complement ; therefore the complement of AOD or of AD may with propriety be consi- dered negative. Galling the arc AE or AD, e, the complement will he 90° — e ; the complement of 36° 44' 83" is 53° 15' 27" ; and the complement of 136° 2T' 39" is negative 46° 27' 39". The arc BE, which must be added to AB to make up a semi- circle or 180°, is called the supplement of the arc AB. IF the arc is greater than 180°, as the arc ADP its supplement, FE mea- sured in the reverse direction is negative. The expression for the supplement of any arc o is therefore 180° ~ o; thus the supple- ment of 112° 29' 35" is 67° 30' 25", and the supplement of 205° 42' is negative 25° 42'. In the same manner as the complementary and supplementary arcs are considered as positive or negative, according to the di- rection in which they are measured, so are the arcs themselves positive or negative ; thus, still taking A for the commencement, or origin, of the arcs, as AB is positive, All will be negative. In the doctrine of triangles, we consider only positive angles or arcs, and the magnitudes of these are comprised between o = and o = 180° ; hut in the general theory of angular quantity, we consider both positive and negative angles, according as they are situated above or below the fixed line AO, from which they are measured, that is, according as the ares hy which they are estimated are posi- tive or negative. Thus the angle BOA is positive, and the angle AOH negative. Moreover, in this move extended theory of angular magnitude, an angle may consist of any number of degrees what- ever ; thus, if the revolving line OB set out from the fixed line OA, and make n revolutions and a part, the angular magnitude gene- rated is measured by n times 360°, plus the degrees in the ad- ditional part. In a right-angled spherical triangle we are to recognise but five parts, namely, the three sides a, 5, c, and the two angles A, , BO that the right angle C is omitted. hv Google SPHERICAL Tr.IGOKOMETKT. Let A', c', B,' be the comple- ments of A, c, B, respectively, and suppose b, a, W, c', A', to be placed on the hand, as in the annexed figure, and that the fingers stand in a circular order, the parts represented by the fingers thus placed are called * circular parts. If we take any one of these as a middle part, the two which lie next to it, one on each side, will be adjaaent parts. The two parts immediately beyond the adjacent parts, one on each side, are called the opposite parts. Thus, taking A' for a middle part, h and c' will be adjacent parts, and a and B' are opposite parts. If we take c' as a middle part. A' and B' are adjacent parts, and 6, a, opposite parts. When B' is a middle part, c', a, become adjacent parts, and A', h, opposite parts. Again, if we take « as a middle part, then B', h, will be adjacent parts, and c', A', opposite parts. Lastly, taking 6 as a middle part. A', a, are adjacent parts, and c', B', opposite parts. This being understood, Napier's two rules may be expressed as follows : — I. Ead. X sin. middle part = product of tan. adjacent parts. II. Rad. X sin. middle part = product of cos. opposite parts. Both these rules may be comprehended in a single expression, thus, Rad. sin. mid. = prod, tan, adja. = prod. cos. opp. ; and to retain this in the memory we have only to remember, that the vowels in the contractions sin., tan., cos., are the same as those in the contractions mid., adja., opp., to which they are joined. These rules comprehend all the succeeding equations, reading from the centre, R = radius. In the solution of right-angled spherical triangles, two parts are given to find a third, therefore it is necessary, in the application of this formula, to choose for the middle part that which causes the other two to become either adjacent pa,rts or opposite parts.

The velocity acquired by a body in falling from rest through a given height, is the same, whether it fail freely, or descend on a plane at whatever inclination. The space through which a body will descend on an inclined plane, is to the space through which it would fall freely in the same time, as the sine of the inclination of the plane to the radius- The velocities which bodies acquire by descending along chords of the same circle, are aa the lengths of those chords. If the body descend in a curve, it suffers no loss of velocity. The centre of gravity of a hody is a point about which all its parts are in equilihrio. Hence, if a body be suspended or supported by this point, the body will rest in any position into which it is put. We may, there- fore, consider the whole weight of a body as centred in this point. The common centre of gravity of two or more bodies, is the point about which they would equiponderate or rest in any position. If the centres of gravity of two bodies be connected by a right line, the distances from the common centre of gravity are reciprocally aa the weights of the bodies. If a line be drawn from the centre of gravity of a body, perpen- dicular to the horizon, it is called the line of direction, being the line that the centre of gravity would describe if the body fell freely. The centre of gyration is that part of a body revolving about an axis, into which if the whole quantity of matter were collected, the same moving force would generate the same angular velocity. To find the centre of Gyration. — Multiply the weight of the several particles by the squares of their distances from the centre of motion, and divide the sum of the products by the weight of the whole mass; the square root of the quotient will be the distance of the centre of gyration from the centre of motion.

The centre of •percussion is that point in a hody revolving about a jkced axi», into which the whole of the force or motion is collected. It is, therefore, that point of a revolving body which would strike any obstacle with the greatest effect ; and, from this property, it has received the name of the centre of percussion. The centres of oscillation and percussion are in the same point. If a heavy straight bar, of uniform density, he suspended at one extremity, the distance of its centre of percussion is two-thirds of its length. In a long slender rod of a cylindrical or prismatic shape, the centre of percussion is nearly two-thirds of the length from the axis of suspension. In an isosceles triangle, suspended by its apex, the distance of the centre of percussion is three-fourths of its altitude. In a line or rod whose density varies as the distance from the point of sus- pension, also in a fly-wheel, and in wheels in general, the centre of percussion is distant from the centre of suspension three-fourths of the length. In a very slender cone or pyramid, vibrating about its apex, the distance of its centre of percussion is nearly four-fifths of its length. Pendulums of the same length vibrate slower, the nearer they are brought to the equator. A pendulum, therefore, to vibrate seconds at the equator, must be somewhat shorter than at the poles. When we consider a simple pendulum as a ball, which is sus- pended by a rod or line, supposed to be inflexible, and without weight, we suppose the whole weight to be collected in the centre of gravity of the ball. But when a pendulum consists of a ball, or any other figure, suspended by a metallic or wooden rod, the length of the pendulum is the distance from the point of suspension to a point in the pendulum, called the centre of oscillation, which does not exactly coincide with the centre of gravity of the ball. If a rod of iron were suspended, and made to vibrate, that point iu which all its force would be collected is called its centre of oscil- lation, and is situated at two-thirds the length of the rod from the point of suspension. SPECIFIC GRAVITY. The comparative density of various substances, expressed by the term specific gravity, affords the means of readily determining the bulk from the known weight, or the weight from the known bulk ; and this will be found more especially useful, in cases where the substance is too large to admit of being weighed, or too irregular in shape to allow of correct measurement. The standard with which ail solids and liquids are thus compared, is that of distilled water, one cubic foot of which weighs 1000 ounces avoirdupois ; hv Google 392 THE PRACTICAL MODEL CALCULATOR. and the specific gravity of ii solid body is determined by the dif- ference between its weight in the air, and in water. Thus, If the body be heavier than water, it will displace a quantity of fluid equal to it in bulk, and wil! lose as much weight on immersion as that of an equal bulk of the fluid. Let it be weighed first, therefore, in the air, and then in water, and its weight in the air be divided by the difference between the two weights, and the quo- tient will be its specific gravity, that of water being unity. A piece of copper ore weighs 56J ounces in the air, and 43| ounces in water ; required its specific gravity. 66-25 — 43-75 = 12-5 and 56-25 -^ 12-5 = 4-5, the specific gravity. If the body be lighter than water, it will float, and displace a quantityoffloidequal toit in we^^Ai, the bulk of which will be equal to that only of the part immersed. A heavier substance must, therefore, be attached to it, so that the two may sink in tlie fluid. Then, the weight of the lighter substance in the air, must be added to that of the heavier substance in water, and the weight of both united, in water, be subtracted from the sum ; the weight of the lighter body in the air must then be divided by the difference, and the quotient will be the specific gravity of the lighter substance required. A piece of fir weighs 40 ounces in the air, and, being immersed in water attached to a piece of iron weighing 30 ounces, the two together are found to weigh 3'3 ounces in water, and the iron alone, 25-8 ounces in the water ; required the specific gravity of the wood. 40 + 25-8 = 65-8 - 3-3 = 62-5 ; and 40 -j- 62-5 = 0-64, the specific gravity of the fir. The specific gravity of s, fluid may be determined by taking a, solid body, heavy enough to sink in the fluid, and of known spe- cific gravity, and weighing it both in the air and in the fluid. The difference between the two weights must be multiplied by the spe- cific gravity of the solid body, and the product divided by the weight of the solid in the air : the quotient will be the specific gravity of the fluid, that of water being unity. Required the specific gravity of a given mixture of muriatic acid and water ; a piece of glass, the specific gravity of which is 3, weighing 3J ounces when immersed in it, and 6 ounces in the air. 6 - 3-75 = 2-25 X 3 = 6-75 -r- 6 = 1-125, the specific gravity. Since the weight of a cubic foot of distilled water, at the tem- perature of 60 degrees, (Fahrenheit,) has been ascertained to be 1000 avoirdupois ounces, it follows that the specific gravities of all bodies compared with it, may be made to express the weight, in ounces, of a cubic foot of each, by multiplying these specific gra- vities (compared with that of water as unity) by 1000. Thus, that of water being 1, and that of silver, as compared with it, being 10-474, tho multiplication of each by 1000 will give 1000 ounces for the cubic foot of water, and 10474 ounces for the cubic foot of silver. hv Google SPECIFIC GRAVITY, 393 In the following tables of specific gravities, the niimbers in the first column, if taken as whole numbers, represent the weight of a, cubic foot in ounces ; but if the last three figures arc taken aa deci- mals, they indicate the specific gravity of the body, water being considered as unity, or 1. To ascertain the number of cubic feet in a substance, from its weight, the whole weight in pounds avoirdupois must be divided by the figures against the name, in the second column of the table, taken as whole numbers and decimals, and the ijuoticnt will be the contents in cubic feet. , Required the cubic content of a mass of cast-iron, weighing 7 cwt. 1 qr. = 812 lbs. 812 lbs. -^ 450-5 (the tabular weight) = 1-803 cubic feet. To find the weight from the measurement or cubic content of a substance, this operation must be reversed, and the number of cubic feet, found by the rules given under "Mensuration of Solids," multiplied by the figures in the second column, to obtain the weight in pounda avoirdupois. Required the weight of a log of oak, 3 feet by 2 feet 6 inches, and 9 feet long. 9x3x2-5 = C7-5 cubic feet. And 67-5 x 58-2 (the tabular weight) = 3928-5 lbs., or 35 cwt. qr. 8| lbs.
