## Symmetry Sentence Examples

- But he is always ingenious, often witty, and nobody has carried farther than he the harmony of diction, sometimes marred by an affectation of
**symmetry**and an excessive use of antithesis. - Strange as it may appear, I would refer to an Australian as the finest model of the human proportions I have ever met; in muscular development combining perfect
**symmetry**, activity and strength, while his head might have compared with the antique bust of a philosopher." **Symmetry**was in fact the first geographical metry.- The rude
**symmetry**of the feudal system had been long ago destroyed by partial and unskilful adaptations to modern commercial life, effected at various dates and in accordance with various theories. - The Gastropoda are mainly characterized by a loss of
**symmetry**, produced by torsion of the visceral sac. This torsion may be resolved into two successive movements. - - These are the most primitive Gastropods, retaining to a great degree the original
**symmetry**of the FIG. - His vanity made him order the surgeons to cut out a bone which protruded below the knee and spoilt the
**symmetry**of his leg. - The
**symmetry**of the second pair was also established in 1878 by E. - A factor of considerable importance in determining boiling-points of isomers is the
**symmetry**of the molecule. - The series H 2 S = - 61°, CH 3 SH = 21 °, (C 11 3) 2 S=41 ° is an example; in the first case, the molecular weight is increased and the
**symmetry**diminished, the increase of boiling-point being 82°; in the second case the molecular weight is again increased but the molecule assumes a more symmetrical configuration, hence the comparatively slight increase of 20°. - In the article Crystallography the nature and behaviour of twinned crystals receives full treatment; here it is sufficient to say that when the planes and axes of twinning are planes and axes of
**symmetry**, a twin would exhibit higher**symmetry**(but remain in the same crystal system) than the primary crystal; and, also, if a crystal approximates in its axial constants to 'a higher system, mimetic twinning would increase the approximation, and the crystal would be pseudo-symmetric. - The measure of the loss of
**symmetry**associated with the introduction of alkyl groups depends upon the relative magnitudes of the substituent group and the rest of the molecule; and the larger the molecule, the less would be the morphotropic effect of any particular substituent. - The hydroxyl group also resembles the methyl group in its morphotropic effects, producing, in many cases, no change in
**symmetry**but a dimensional increase in one direction. - The plane of the optic axes may be either perpendicular or parallel to the plane of
**symmetry**of the crystal, and according to its position two classes of mica are distinguished. - To the first class, with the optic axial plane perpendicular to the plane of
**symmetry**, belong muscovite, lepidolite, paragonite, and a rare variety of biotite called anomite; the second class includes zinnwaldite, phlogopite, lepidomelane and most biotites. - Dark coloured micas are strongly pleochroic. Accurate determinations of the optical orientation, as well as the
**symmetry**of the etching figures on the cleavage planes, seem to suggest that the micas, except muscovite, may be anorthic rather than monoclinic in crystallization. - Even in ordinary algebra the notation for powers and roots disturbs the
**symmetry**of the rational theory; and when a schoolboy illegitimately extends the distributive law by writing -V (a+b)a+J b, he is unconsciously emphasizing this want of complete harmony. - The groups within groups adopted for this purpose were necessarily wanting in
**symmetry**: the whole system presented a strangely irregular character. - The phase of the resultant effect is by
**symmetry**that of the component which comes from the middle of a. - If Q be on the circle described upon OA as diameter, so that u = a cos 4,, then Q' lies also upon the same circle; and in this case it follows from the
**symmetry**that the unsymmetrical aberration (depending upon a) vanishes. - With the values above of u, v, w, u', v', w', the equations become of the form p x + 4 7rpAx -Fax -{-hy-}-gz =o, - p - dy+ 4?pBy + hx+ay+fz =o, P d p + TpCZ +f y + yz = o, and integrating p p 1+27rp(Ax2+By2+CZ2) +z ('ax e +ay e + yz2 2 f yz + 2gzx + 2 hx y) = const., (14) so that the surfaces of equal pressure are similar quadric surfaces, which,
**symmetry**and dynamical considerations show, must be coaxial surfaces; and f, g, h vanish, as follows also by algebraical reduction; and 4c2 (c 2 - a2)? - Preserves its original direction, if a principal axis of the body; otherwise the axis describes a cone, right circular if the body has uniaxial
**symmetry**, and a Poinsot cone in the general case. - The
**symmetry**of the cone is marred by a con vexity on the seaward (S.) side. - A remarkable feature of the solar system, which distinguishes it from all other known systems in the universe, is the
**symmetry**of arrangement and motion of its greater bodies. - There is
**symmetry**about the initial line and a cusp at the origin. - They received Pierre in their small, new drawing-room, where it was impossible to sit down anywhere without disturbing its
**symmetry**, neatness, and order; so it was quite comprehensible and not strange that Berg, having generously offered to disturb the**symmetry**of an armchair or of the sofa for his dear guest, but being apparently painfully undecided on the matter himself, eventually left the visitor to settle the question of selection. - Pierre disturbed the
**symmetry**by moving a chair for himself, and Berg and Vera immediately began their evening party, interrupting each other in their efforts to entertain their guest. - In 1812 it reaches its extreme limit, Moscow, and then, with remarkable
**symmetry**, a countermovement occurs from east to west, attracting to it, as the first movement had done, the nations of middle Europe.
