Pagina 40 - That gravity should be innate, inherent, and essential to matter, so that one body may act upon another at a distance through a vacuum, without the mediation of anything else, by and through which their action and force may be conveyed from one to another, is to me so great an. absurdity, that I believe no man who has in philosophical! matters a competent faculty of thinking, can ever fall into it.
Pagina 25 - All these things being consider'd, it seems probable to me, that God in the Beginning form'd Matter in solid, massy, hard, impenetrable, moveable Particles, of such Sizes and Figures, and with such other Properties, and in such Proportion to Space, as most conduced to the End for which he form'd them...
Pagina 40 - It is inconceivable, that inanimate brute matter should, without the mediation of something else, which is not material, operate upon, and affect other matter without mutual contact; as it must do, if gravitation, in the sense of Epicurus, be essential and inherent in it.
Pagina 598 - Total Eclipse of the Sun, May 18, 1901 : Reports on the Dutch Expedition to Karang Sago, Sumatra; No. 4: Heat Radiation of the Sun during the Eclipse,
Pagina 192 - It is also wonderful how much towards explaining the crystallography and elasticity of solids, and the thermo-elastic properties of solids, liquids, and gases, we find without assuming more than one transition from attraction to repulsion.
Pagina 25 - Particles, of such Sizes and Figures, and with such other Properties, and in such Proportion to Space, as most conduced to the End for which he formed them; and that these primitive Particles being Solids, are incomparably harder than any porous Bodies compounded of them; even so very hard, as never to wear or break in pieces; no ordinary Power being able to divide what God himself made in the first Creation.
Pagina 192 - Every infinite homogeneous assemblage of Boscovich atoms is in equilibrium. So, therefore, is every finite homogeneous assemblage, provided that extraneous forces be applied to all within influential distance of the frontier, equal to the forces which a homogeneous continuation of the assemblage through influential distance beyond the frontier would exert on them. The investigation of these extraneous forces for any given homogeneous assemblage of single atoms — or groups of atoms as explained...
Pagina 192 - ... in the former procedure. § 3. In the present communication we shall consider only atoms of identical quality, and only two kinds of assemblage. I. A homogeneous assemblage of N single atoms, in which the twelve nearest neighbours of each atom are equidistant from it. This, for brevity, I call an equilateral assemblage. It is fully described in " MCM,
Pagina 434 - ... mm. from its origin at the withers until it loses itself half-way down the tail. The tail, which differs but little from that of a pony foal, is of a lighter brown colour than the short upright mane, while the dorsal band is of a reddish-brown hue. In the wild horse the dorsal band is sometimes very narrow (under 5 mm.) and indistinct. In the Kiang sire there are pale but quite distinct stripes...
Pagina 84 - D, are the eight corners of the hexahedron which we found by construction (1). A circumscribed hexahedron being thus given, the principal axes of the ellipsoid, and their orientation, are found by the solution of a cubic equation. § 6. Another way of finding the strain-ellipsoid, which is in some respects simpler, and which has the advantage that in its construction it does not take us outside the boundary of our * Thomson and Tait's Natural Philosophy, § 156 ; Elements, § 136.
