## Radii Sentence Examples

- Propositions I-II are preliminary, 13-20 contain tangential properties of the curve now known as the spiral of Archimedes, and 21-28 show how to express the area included between any portion of the curve and the
**radii**vectores to its extremities. - Circles of these
**radii**are usually marked around the jack for convenience' sake. - With increase of speeds this matter has become important as an element of comfort in passenger traffic. As a first approximation, the centre-line of a railway may be plotted out as a number of portions of circles, with intervening straight tangents connecting them, when the abruptness of the changes of direction will depend on the
**radii**of the circular portions. - The resistance to motion round a curve has not been so systematically studied that any definite rule can be formulated applicable to all classes of rolling stock and all
**radii**of curves. - It is the envelope of circles described on the central
**radii**of an ellipse as diameters. - The probable reason for the wall-lines being concentric is that lines passing over the
**radii**as nearly as possible at right angles are the shortest that can be laid on; they therefore use up a smaller quantity of silk and take a shorter time to spin than threads crossing the**radii**in any other direction; and at the same time they afford them the greatest possible support compatible with delicacy and strength of construction. - Representing by P this position, it follows that the area of that portion of the ellipse contained between the
**radii**vectores FB and FP will bear the same ratio to the whole area of the ellipse that t does to T, the time of revolution. - In diameter, sometimes surmounted by trees in the midst of a treeless plain and sometimes arranged in circles and on
**radii**, and decreasing in size with distance from the centre of the field - has been variously explained. - We imagine a wave-front divided o x Q into elementary rings or zones - often named after Huygens, but better after Fresnelby spheres described round P (the point at which the aggregate effect is to be estimated), the first sphere, touching the plane at 0, with a radius equal to PO, and the succeeding spheres with
**radii**increasing at each step by IX. - Snellius) to calculate the
**radii**of the bows, and his theoretical angles were in agreement with those observed. - Primary, secondary and spurious bows were formed, and their
**radii**measured; a comparison of these observations exhibited agreement with Airy's analytical values. - For figures of more than four sides this method is not usually convenient, except for such special cases as that of a regular polygon, which can be divided into triangles C by
**radii**drawn from its centre. - And the
**radii**of the circles drawn round it are 12, 16, 20, &c. If the figure thus drawn is spun round its centre in the right direction in its own plane waves appear to travel out from the centre along any radius. - The solid enclosed by a small circle and the
**radii**vectores from the centre of the sphere is a "spherical sector"; and the solid contained between two spherical sectors standing on copolar small circles is a "spherical cone." - If r, r i be the
**radii**of two spheres, d the distance between the centres, and 0 the angle at which they intersect, then d2=r2+ r12 2rr l cos ¢ hence 2rr 1 cos =d2r2 - r22. - Divide the span L into any convenient number n of equal parts of length 1, so that nl = L; compute the
**radii**of curvature R 1, R2, R3 for the several sections. - Let measurements along the beam be represented according to any convenient scale, so that calling L 1 and 1 1 the lengths to be drawn on paper, we have L = aL i; now let r1, r 2, r 3 be a series of
**radii**such that r 1 = R i /ab, r 2 = R 2 /ab, &c., where b is any convenient constant chosen of such magnitude as will allow arcs with the**radii**, r 1, &c., to be drawn with the means at the draughtsman's disposal. - 72 with arcs of the length 1,, l2, l3, &c., and with the
**radii**r1, r 2, &c. (note, for a length 2l 1 at each end the radius will be infinite, and the curve must end with a straight line tangent to the last arc), then let v be the measured deflection of this curve from the straight line, and V the actual deflection of the bridge; we have V = av/b, approximately. - The medusa has a pronounced radial symmetry, and the positions of the primary tentacles, usually four in number, mark out the so-called
**radii**, alternating with which are four interradii. - Starting with the stem forms the descendants of which have passed through either persistent or changed habitats, we reach the underlying idea of the branching law of Lamarck or the law of divergence of Darwin, and find it perhaps most clearly expressed in the words "adaptive radiation" (Osborn), which convey the idea of
**radii**in many directions. - Among extinct Tertiary mammals we can actually trace the giving off of these
**radii**in all directions, for taking advantage of every possibility to secure food, to escape enemies and to reproduce kind; further, among such well-known quadrupeds as the horses, rhinoceroses and titanotheres, the modifications involved in these radiations can be clearly traced. - Because of the repetition of analogous physiographic and climatic conditions in regions widely separated both in time and in space, we discover that continental and local adaptive radiations result in the creation of analogous groups of
**radii**among all the vertebrates and invertebrates. - Then circles having the intersections of tangents to this circle and the line of centres for centres, and the lengths of the tangents as
**radii**, are members of the coaxal system. - The inner halo I, and the outer halo 0, having
**radii**of about 22° and 46 °, and exhibiting the colours of the spectrum in a confused manner, the only decided tint being the red on the inside. - The law, e.g., of the equality of the
**radii**of a circle cannot be exhibited to sense, even if equal**radii**may be so exhibited. - This is the only way, we say; but there are as many ways as there can be drawn
**radii**from one centre.
