**vortex**is the first matter of Descartes - it constitutes the sun or star. - A single
**vortex**will remain at rest, and cause a velocity at any point inversely as the distance from the axis and perpendicular to its direction; analogous to the magnetic field of a straight electric current. - But in other cases the encrusted star settles in that portion of the revolving
**vortex**which has a velocity equivalent to its own, and so continues to revolve in the**vortex**, wrapped in its own firmament. - It should be added that the modern theory of
**vortex-atoms**(Lord Kelvin's) to explain the constitution of matter has but slight analogy with Cartesian doctrine, and finds a parellel, if anywhere, in a modification of that doctrine by Malebranche. - In this year the short-lived federation of the five powers was shaken, and Italy was once more drawn into the
**vortex**of Europe~n affairs. - The United States was, at this time, drawn into the

**vortex**ring, the optical image; the**vortex**ring spreads out and moves more slowly as it approaches the wall; at the same time the molecular rotation, inversely as the cross-section of the**vortex**, is seen to increase. - The analytical treatment of such
**vortex**rings is the same as for the electro-magnetic effect of a current circulating in each ring. - Flow, Circulation, and
**Vortex**Motion.-The line integral of the tangential velocity along a curve from one point to another, defined by s v as + u'a s) ds =f (udx+vdy-}-zdz), (I) is called the " flux " along the curve from the first to the second point; and if the curve closes in on itself the line integral round the curve is called the " circulation " in the curve. - If through every point of a small closed curve the
**vortex**lines are drawn, a tube is obtained, and the fluid contained is called a**vortex**filament. - Hence in any infinitesimal part of the fluid the circulation is zero round every small plane curve passing through the
**vortex**line; and consequently the circulation round any curve drawn on the surface of a**vortex**filament is zero. - If at any points of a
**vortex**line the cross-section ABC, A'B'C' is drawn of the**vortex**filament, joined by the**vortex**line AA', then, since the flow in AA' is taken in opposite directions in the complete circuit ABC AA'B'C' A'A, the resultant flow in AA' cancels, and the circulation in ABC, A'B'C' is the same; this is expressed by saying that at all points of a**vortex**filament wa is constant where a is the cross-section of the filament and w the resultant spin (W. - So far these theorems on
**vortex**motion are kinematical; but introducing the equations of motion of § 22, Du + dQ =o, Dv+dQ =o, Dw + dQ dt dx dt dy dt dz and taking dx, dy, dz in the direction of u, v, w, and dx: dy: dz=u: v: w, (udx + vdy + wdz) = Du dx +u 1+.. - The circulation being always zero round a small plane curve passing through the axis of spin in vortical motion, it follows conversely that a
**vortex**filament is composed always of the same fluid particles; and since the circulation round a cross-section of a**vortex**filament is constant, not changing with the time, it follows from the previous kinematical theorem that aw is constant for all time, and the same for every cross-section of the**vortex**filament. - A
**vortex**filament must close on itself, or end on a bounding surface, as seen when the tip of a spoon is drawn through the surface of water. - It is impossible within brief limits to convey more than a general idea of the work of a philosopher who published more than three hundred original papers bearing upon nearly every branch of physical science; who one day was working out the mathematics of a
**vortex**theory of matter on hydrodynamical principles or discovering the limitations of the capabilities of the**vortex**atom, on another was applying the theory of elasticity to tides in the solid earth, or was calculating the size of water molecules, and later was designing an electricity meter, a dynamo or a domestic water-tap. It is only by reference to his published papers that any approximate conception can be formed of his life's work; but the student who had read all these knew comparatively little of Lord Kelvin if he had not talked with him face to face. - Unfortunately, she, in common with the rest of South Africa, was subsequently swept into the seething
**vortex**of contemporary politics and controversy. - In the famous typhoon of the 10th of October 1882, the
**vortex**of which passed over Manila, an immense amount of damage was done in the city. - From these contests of rival nobles, in which the names of Spinola and Doria stand forth with greatest prominence, Genoa was soon drawn into the great
**vortex**of the Guelph and Ghibelline factions; but its recognition of foreign authority - successively German, Neapolitan and Milanese - gave way to a state of greater independence in 1339, when the government assumed a more permanent form with the appointment of the first doge, an office held at Genoa for life, in the person of Simone Boccanera. - In addition to a large number of publications in the Proceedings of the Royal Society and the Philosophical Magazine, he has published A Treatise on the Motion of
**Vortex**Rings (1884); The Application of Dynamics to Physics and Chemistry (1886); Recent Researches in Electricity and Magnetism (1892); Elements of the Mathematical Theory of Electricity and Magnetism (18 95, 5th ed. - The current formed by the trochus is a gigantic
**vortex-ring**, the down stroke of the cilia being directly outwards, brit the wave beats running round the organ in uniform succession in one direc tion. - Thus the rotifer is, as it were, constantly drawn forward into the centre of this
**vortex**ring. - Various analogies of this sort are open to us to follow up: for example, the way in which a fluid medium transmits pressure from one immersed solid to another - or from one
**vortex**ring belonging to the fluid to another, which is a much wider and more suggestive case; or the way in which an elastic fluid like the atmosphere transmits sound; or the way in which an elastic solid transmits waves of transverse as well as longitudinal displacement. - The other course is to consider matter as formed of ultimate atoms, each the nucleus or core of an intrinsic modification impressed on the surrounding region of the aether; this might conceivably be of the nature of vortical motion of a liquid round a ring-core, thus giving a
**vortex**atom, or of an intrinsic strain of some sort radiating from a core, which would give an electric atom. - FitzGerald) from a structure of tangled or interlaced
**vortex**filaments pervading its substance, which might conceivably arrange themselves into a stable configuration and so resist deformation. - We can obtain a pertinent illustration from the motion of a
**vortex**ring in a fluid; if the circular core of the ring is thin compared with its diameter, and the vorticity is not very great, it is the vortical state of motion that travels across the fluid without transporting the latter bodily with it except to a slight extent very close to the core.
