## Hydrostatics Sentence Examples

- (7) On Floating Bodies (Peri okoumenon) is a treatise in two books, the first of which establishes the general principles of
**hydrostatics**, and the second discusses with the greatest completeness the positions of rest and stability of a right segment of a paraboloid of revolution floating in a fluid. - By his mode of regarding a liquid as a material system characterized by the unshackled mobility of its minutest parts, the separation between the mechanics of matter in different forms of aggregation finally disappeared, and the fundamental equation of forces was for the first time extended to
**hydrostatics**and hydrodynamics.' - U3po ajXavuta), the science of the mechanics of water and fluids in general, including
**hydrostatics**or the mathematical theory of fluids in equilibrium, and hydromechanics, the theory of fluids in motion. - In the hands of Blaise Pascal (1623-1662)
**hydrostatics**assumed the dignity of a science, and in a treatise on the equilibrium of liquids (Sur l'equilibre des liqueurs), found among his manuscripts after his death and published in 1663, the laws of the equilibrium of liquids were demonstrated in the most simple manner, and amply confirmed by experiments. - (X.)
**Hydrostatics****Hydrostatics**is a science which grew originally out of a number of isolated practical problems; but it satisfies the requirement of perfect accuracy in its application to phenomena, the largest and smallest, of the behaviour of a fluid. - At the same time, it delights the pure theorist by the simplicity of the logic with which the fundamental theorems may be established, and by the elegance of its mathematical operations, insomuch that
**hydrostatics**may be considered as the Euclidean pure geometry of mechanical science. - This fundamental principle of
**hydrostatics**follows at once from the principle of the normality of fluid pressure implied in the definition of a fluid in § 4. - The absolute unit of force is employed here, and not the gravitation unit of
**hydrostatics**; in a numerical application it is assumed that C.G.S. - If homogeneous liquid is drawn off from a vessel so large that the motion at the free surface at a distance may be neglected, then Bernoulli's equation may be written H = PIP--z - F4 2 / 2g = P/ p +h, (8) where P denotes the atmospheric pressure and h the height of the free surface, a fundamental equation in hydraulics; a return has been made here to the gravitation unit of

**hydrostatics**, for instance, we define a fluid by means of one of its known properties, and from this definition we make the system of deductions which constitutes the science of**hydrostatics**. - In his Discorso intorno alle cose the stanno su l'acqua, published in 1612, he used the principle of virtual velocities to demonstrate the more important theorems of
**hydrostatics**, deducing from it the equilibrium of fluid in a siphon, and proved against the Aristotelians that the floating of solid bodies in a liquid depends not upon their form, but upon their specific gravities relative to such liquid. - With all the important work he accomplished in physics - the enunciation of Boyle's law, the discovery of the part taken by air in the propagation of sound, and investigations on the expansive force of freezing water, on specific gravities and refractive powers, on crystals, on electricity, on colour, on
**hydrostatics**, &c. - chemistry was his peculiar and favourite study. - In this way the science of
**hydrostatics**may be built upon an experimental basis, without any consideration of the constitution of a fluid as to whether it is molecular or continuous.
