Page 117 - Every body continues in its state of rest, or of uniform motion in a straight line, unless it is compelled to change that state by forces impressed upon it.
Page 75 - At a constant temperature the volume of a given mass of gas varies inversely as the pressure sustained by it. If the volume of gas v under a pressure p becomes volume v' when the pressure is changed to p', then by the law: , H- = - ; whence pv =p'v'.
Page 156 - ... the work done in overcoming the resistance, except that some of the applied energy may be dissipated as heat or may not appear in mechanical form. A machine can never produce an increase of energy so as to give out more than it receives. Denote the applied force, or effort, by E and the resistance by R, and let D and d denote the distances respectively through which they work. Then from the law of conservation of energy, the effort multiplied by the distance through which it acts is equal to...
