The formulas under this and the preceding heading are rigidly true only for bodies moving in a vacuum or in space (as the stars and planets); they are approximately true for bodies moving in air, provided they are dense and the velocity is not very great. Fairly good results may be obtained by applying the formulas for projectiles in calculating the range of a jet of water issuing from a small orifice in the side of a vessel. Let g = 32.16 = acceleration due to gravity; initial velocity in feet per second; range; y vertical height of starting point above ground; A = elevation in degrees angle that the direction of the projectile at the start makes with the horizontal. Then the range, or distance from the starting point to the point where the projectile crosses a horizontal line through the starting point, is sin 2 A. V If the body is projected in a horizontal direction, the range is the distance from the starting point to the point where the projectile strikes the ground, and 2 y VV 2A938 vị g. g The range of a projectile fired in a horizontal direction, 30 ft. above the ground, with a velocity of 300 ft. per second, equals r = .24938 X 300 X V 30 409.77 ft.

F centrifugal force in pounds; W= weight of revolving body in pounds; distance from the axis of motion to the center of gravity of the body in feet; Wv2 = .00034 Wr No. gr In calculating the centrifugal force of flywheels, it is customary to neglect the arms and take r equal to the mean radius of the rim; in such cases W is taken as one-half the weight of the rim. The result thus obtained, divided by a, is approximately the force tending to burst the iywheel rim. EXAMPLE.-What is the force tending to burst a flywheel rim weighing 7 tons, making 150 rev. per min., and having a mean radius of 5 ft.?

The center of gravity of a body, or of a system of bodies, is that point from which, if the body or system were suspended, it would be in equilibrium. If a line or a surface has two axes, or a solid has three axes of symmetry, the center of gravity lies at their point of intersection, and corresponds with the geometrical center of the figure. |
