Сторінка 68 - ... moving force destroyed by collision with the earth. Conversely, the amount of heat necessary to raise a pound of water one degree in temperature, would, if all applied mechanically, be competent to raise a pound weight 772 feet high, or it would raise 772 pounds one foot high. The term ' foot-pounds ' has been introduced to express in a convenient way the lifting of one pound to the height of a foot.

Сторінка 15 - ... that the repulsive force at a distance of one-half is four times as great as that at a distance of one, and that the repulsive force at a distance of one-third is nine times as great. In other words, the repulsive force of a magnet is inversely as the square of the distance. Method of Oscillations. — Another method of measuring magnetic force is the method of oscillations. A magnet set to oscillating, when under the influence of a magnetic force, acts like a pendulum when oscillating under...
