Página 586 - ... one pound of water one degree Fahrenheit is called a British thermal unit.
Página 507 - MOMENT OF A FORCE— PARALLEL FORCES 22. Moment of a force. The moment of a force about any point is the product of the magnitude of the force and the perpendicular distance from the point to the line of action of the force.
Página 583 - The best example of radiant heat is that received from the sun, the intervening space in this case being 93,000,000 miles. A person standing in front of a fire, but at some distance from it, feels a sensation of warmth which is not due to the temperature of the air, for, if a screen be interposed between him and the fire, the sensation immediately ceases, which would not be the case if the surrounding air had a high temperature. Hence, bodies can send out rays which excite heat and which penetrate...
