**axes**with a sphere described about 0 as centre.The composition of finite rotations about parallel

**axes**is, a particular case of the preceding; the radius of the sphere is now infinite, and the triangles are plane.Successive half-turns about parallel

**axes**a, b are equivalent to a translation measured by double the distance between these**axes**in the direction from a to 1,.Successive halfturns about intersecting

**axes**a, b are equivalent to a rotation about the common perpendicular to a, b at their intersection, Of amount equal to twice the acute angle between them, in the direction from a to b.Successive half-turns about two skew

**axes**a, b are equivalent to a twist about a screw whose axis is the common perpendicular to a, b, the translation being double the shortest distance, and the angle of rotation being twice the acute angle between a, b, in the direction from a to b.If AB, AC represent infinitesimal rotations about intersecting

**axes**.We examine first the case where the

**axes**of the two screws are at right angles and intarsect.We take these as

**axes**of x and y; then if f, n be the component rotations about them, we have -In the first place, a cyhindroid can be constructed so as to have its axis coincident with the common perpendicular to the

**axes**of the two given screws and to satisfy thi-ee other conditions, for the position of the centre, the parameter, and the orientation about the axis are still at our disposal.Hence we can adjust these so that the surface shall contain the

**axes**of the two given screws as generators, and that the difference of the corresponding pitches shall have the proper value.It follows that when a body has two degrees Of freedom it can twist about any one of a singly infinite system of screws whose

**axes**lie on a certain cylindroid.Hence a couple of moment G, whose axis has the direction (1, m, n) relative to a right-handed system of rectangular

**axes**, FIG.The formula (16) expresses that the squared radius of gyration about any axis (Ox) exceeds the squared radius of gyration about a parallel axis through G by the square of the distance between the two

**axes**.It appears from (24) that through any assigned point 0 three rectangular

**axes**can be drawn such that the product of inertia with respect to each pair of co-ordinate planes vanishes; these are called the principal**axes**of inertia at 0.The squares of the radii of gyration about the principal

**axes**at P may be denoted by k,i+k32, k,f + ki2, k12 + k,2 hence by (32) and (35), they are rfOi, r2Oi, r20s, respectively.To find the relations between the moments of inertia about different

**axes**through any assigned point 0, we take 0 as origin.A, B, C are the moments of inertia about the co-ordinate

**axes**, and F, G, H are the products of inertia with respect to the pairs of co-ordinate planes.When referred to its principal

**axes**, the equation of the quadric takes the form Axi+By2+Czi=M.The directions of these

**axes**are determined by the property (24), and therefore coincide with those of the principal**axes**of inertia at 0, as already defined in connection with the theory of plane quadratic moments.Obviously OV is parallel to the tangent to the path atP, and its magnitude is ds/dt, where s is the arc. If we project OV on the co-ordinate

**axes**(rectangular or oblique) in the usual manner, the projections u, v, w are called the component velocities parallel to the**axes**.Take rectangular

**axes**, of which Oz coincides with the axis of rotation.The relation between these

**axes**may be expressed by means of the momental ellipsoid at 0.The equation of the latter, referred to its principal

**axes**, being as in II (41), the co-ordinates of the point J where it is met by the instantaneous axis are proportional to p, q, r, and the direction-cosines of the normal at J are therefore proportional to Ap, Bq, Cr, or X, u, v.The resulting Z+R equations are not as a rule easy of application, owing to the fact that the moments and products of inertia A, B, C, F, G, H are not constants but vary in conse- 0 quence of the changing orientation of the body with respect to the co-ordinate

**axes**.Take, for example, the case of a sphere rolling on a plane; and let the

**axes**Ox, Oy be drawn through the centre parallel to the plane, so that the equation of the latter is 1=cf.Let a be the radius of the rolling sphere, c that of the spherical surface which is the locus of its centre, and let x, y, I be the co-ordinates of this centre relative to

**axes**through 0, the centre of the fixed sphere.If p, q, r be the component angular velocities about the principal

**axes**at 0, we have (Ap+B2q+C,2)/r = (Ap+Bq1+Cr2)/2T, (3) each side being in fact equal to unity.The ratio of the

**axes**of the ellipse is sec a, the longer axis being in the plane of 0.Moving A xes of ReferenceFor the more general treatment of the kinetics of a rigid body it is usually convenient to adopt a system of moving

**axes**.In order that the moments and products of inertia with respect to these

**axes**may be constant, it is in general necessary to suppose them fixed in the solid.The moving

**axes**Ox, Oy, 01 form a rigid frame of reference whose motion at time t may be specified by the three component angular velocities p, q, r.Now consider a system of fixed

**axes**Ox, Oy, Oz chosen so as to coincide at the instant I with the moving system Ox, Oy, Os.If we now apply them to the case of a rigid body moving about a fixed point 0, and make Ox, Oy, Oz coincide with the principal

**axes**of inertia at 0, we have X, u, v=Ap, Bq, Cr, whence A (B C) qr = L,These equations are due to Euler, with whom the conception of moving

**axes**, and the application to the problem of free rotation, originated.When, in any problem, the values of u, v, w, p, q, r have been determined as functions of t, it still remains to connect the moving

**axes**with some fixed frame of reference.This solution, taken by itself, represents a motion in which each particle of the system (since its displacements parallel to Cartesian co-ordinate

**axes**are linear functions of the qs) executes a simple vibration of period 21r/u.Let yr be the linear velocity of the point E fixed in the plane of

**axes**AOB.Application to a Pair of TurnIng Fseces.Let ai, a2 be the angular velocities of a pair of turning pieces; Of, Oi the angles which their line of connection makes with their respective planes of rotation; Ti, r2 the common perpendiculars let fall from the line of connection upon the respective

**axes**of rotation of the pieces.That, when both pieces rotate, their

**axes**, and all their points of contact, lie in the same plane.That the angular velocities of a pair of turning pieces in rolling contact must be inversely as the perpendicular distances of any pair of points of contact from the respective

**axes**.That for a pair of turning pieces with parallel

**axes**, and for a turning piece and a shifting piece, the line of contact is straight, and parallel to the**axes**or axis; and hence that the rolling surfaces are either plane or cylindrical (the term cylindrical including all surfaces generated by the motion of a straight line parallel tO itself).Cylindrical Wheels and Smooth Racks.In designing cylindrical wheels and smooth racks, and determining their comparati* motion, it is sufficient to consider a section of the pair of pieces made by a plane perpendicular to the axis or

**axes**.The points where

**axes**intersect the plane of section are called centres; the point where the line of contact intersects it, the poini of contact, or pitch-point; and the wheels are described as circular, elliptical, &c., according to the forms of their sections made by that plane.The

**axes**will not be parallel, nor will they intersect each other.The pitch-circles of a pair of circular toothed wheels are sections of their pitch-surfaces, made for spur-wheels (that is, for wheels whose

**axes**are parallel) by a plane at right angles to the**axes**, and for bevel wheels by a sphere described about the common apex.The ordinary position of a pair of endless screws is with their

**axes**at right angles to each other.Ci, C1 are the

**axes**of the two parallel shafts; Di, D2 two disks facing each other, fixed on the ends of the two shafts FIG.Oldhams coupling may be used with advantage where the

**axes**of the shafts are intended to be as nearly in the same straight line as is possible, but where there is some doubt as to the practibility I or nermanency of their exact continuity.The length L of an endless belt connecting a pair of pulleys whose effective radii are r,, r,, with parallel

**axes**whose distance apart is c, is given by the following formulae, in each of which the first term, containing the radical, expresses the length of the straight parts of the belt, and the remainder of the formula the length of the curved parts.That condition is / fulfilled by a pair of con- B ?-D tinuous cones generated by - \ the revolution of two straight 2 / lines inclined opposite ways to -, their respective

**axes**at equal angles.Let r1 be the radius of the large end of each, ri that of the small end, r, that of the middle; and let Ii be the sagitta, measured perpendicular to the

**axes**, of the arc by whose revolution each of the conoids is generated, or, in other words, the bulging of the conoids in the middle of their length.The effect of the link is to maintain the distance between the

**axes**of those pins invariable; hence the common perpendicular of the**axes**of the pins is the line of connection, and its extremities may be called the connected points.The

**axes**of rotation of a pair of turning pieces connected by a link are almost always parallel, and perpendicular to the line of connection n which case the angular velocity ratio at any instant is the recipocal of the ratio of the common perpendiculars let fall from the me of connection upon the respective**axes**of rotation.The velocity of the other connected point at such an instant is null, unless it also reaches a dead-point at the same instant, so that the line of connection is in the plane of the two

**axes**of rotation, in which case the velocity ratio is indeterminate.Coupling of Parallel

**Axes**.Two or more parallel shafts (such as those of a locomotive engine, with two or more pairs of driving wheels) are made to rotate with constantly equal angular velocities by having equal cranks, which are maintained parallel by a coupling-rod of such a length that the line of c000exion is equal to the distance between the**axes**.Let 0 be the point of intersection of the

**axes**OCf, 0C2,Let the axis Ai carry a wheel of N1 teeth, driving a wheel of ni teeth on the axis Ai, which carries also a wheel of N2 teeth, driving a wheel of 113 teeth on the axis A3, and so on; the numbers of teeth in drivers being denoted by Ns, and in followers by ns, and the

**axes**to which the wheels are fixed being denoted by numbers.Supposing all the wheels to be in outside gearing, then, as each elementary combination reverses the direction of rotation, and as the number of elementary combinations m 1 is one less than the number of

**axes**rn it is evident that if m is odd the direction of rotation is preserved, and if even reversed.It is often a question of importance to determine the number of teeth in a train of wheels best suited for giving a determinate velocity ratio to two

**axes**.It was shown by Young that, to do this with the least total number of teeth, the velocity ratio of each elementary combination should approximate as nearly as possible to 3.59., This would in many cases give too many

**axes**; and, as a useful practical rule, it may be laid down that from 3 to 6 ought to be the limit of the velocity ratio of an elementary combination in wheelwork.Adding the centres corresponding to these several

**axes**to the figure, it will be seen that there are six centres in connection with the four-bar chain of which four are permanent and two are instantaneous or virtual centres; and, further, that whatever be the configuration of the chain these centres group themselves into three sets of three, each set lying on a straight line.The virtual centres 0,-,, O,i are at the respective

**axes**of the wheels r and 1, and the centre O,-i divides the line through these two points externally in the ratio of the train of wheels.The origins of these four plane co-ordinate systems may be collinear with the axis of the optical system; and the corresponding

**axes**may be parallel.The optical characters are interesting, because of the striking crossed dispersion of the optic

**axes**, of which phenomenon borax affords the best example.Throughout this vast space of elevated plateau and mountain face geologists now trace a system of main chains, or

**axes**, extending from the Hindu Kush to Assam, arranged in approximately parallel lines, and traversed at intervals by main lines of drainage obliquely.Interspersed between these main geological

**axes**are many other minor ridges, on some of which are peaks of great elevation.Nearly Ioo stone implements were excavated -

**axes**, hammer**axes**, stone hammers and mauls - which, according to Dr Gowland, who superintended the work, had been used not only for breaking the rude blocks into regular forms, but also for working down their faces to a level or curved surface.This twisting is in a great measure owing to the manner in which the bones of the wing are twisted upon themselves, and the spiral nature of their articular surfaces - the long

**axes**of the joints always intersecting each other b FIG.If the wings were not driven at a high speed, and if they were not eccentrics made to revolve upon two separate

**axes**, they would of necessity be large cumbrous structures; but large heavy wings would be difficult to work, and what is worse, they would (if too large), instead of controlling the air, be controlled by it, and so cease to be flying organs.The flexibility and elasticity of the kite formed by the natural wing are rendered necessary by the fact that the wing, as already stated, is practically hinged at its root and along its anterior margin, an arrangement which necessitates its several parts travelling at different degrees of speed, in proportion as they are removed from the

**axes**of rotation.The vertical

**axes**are surmounted by two parachutes, and the body of the machine is furnished with an engine, propeller, rudders and an extensive aeroplane.In the south midlands of England there are two main ranges of hills, with

**axes**roughly parallel.The cartesian equation, referred to the fixed diameter and the tangent at B as

**axes**may be expressed in the forms x= a6, y=a(I -cos 0) and y-a=a sin (x/afir); the latter form shows that the locus is the harmonic curve.A, B, C, D, successive series of

**axes**, the last bearing aerial culms. Much reduced.The two bracts are, however, on different

**axes**, one secondary to the other, and cannot therefore be parts of one whorl of organs.The entire spikelet, or single flowers, are transformed into small-leaved shoots which fall from the

**axes**and readily root in the ground.The pyro-electric characters of quartz are closely connected with its peculiar type of symmetry and especially with the three uniterminal dyad

**axes**.It is to be noticed here that the

**axes**of co-ordinates may be any two lines at right angles to each other whatever; and that the equation of a curve will be different according to the selection of the**axes**of co-ordinates; but the order is independent of the**axes**, and has a determinate value for any given curve.The well-known theorem as to radical

**axes**may be stated as follows.Similarly, if we have a curve U= o derived from the curve u = o in a manner independent of the particular

**axes**of co-ordinates, then from the transformed equation u' = o deriving in like manner the curve U' = o, the two equations U= o, U' = o must each of them imply the other; and when this is so, U will be a covariant of u.The " exceedingly irregularly rounded, low-pointed mountains and hills covered by dense forests " (Hill) are Antillean, not Andean, and lie at right angles to the

**axes**of the systems of North and South America.At the outset, the position of each body, considered as a material particle, is defined by reference to a system of co-ordinate

**axes**, and not by any verbal description.Such a form we all know to be that of the earth and of the planets rotating on their

**axes**.The proper share of each in bringing about this memorable result is not easy to apportion, since they freely imparted and profited by one another's advances and improvements; it need only be said that the fundamental proposition of the invariability of the planetary major

**axes**laid down with restrictions by Laplace in 1773, was finally established by Lagrange in 1776; while Laplace in 1784 proved the subsistence of such a relation between the eccentricities of the planetary orbits on the one hand, and their inclinations on the other, that an increase of either element could, in any single case, proceed only to a very small extent.The Papuans are mostly ignorant of iron, but work skilfully with

**axes**of stone or tridacna shell and bone chisels, cutting down trees 20 in.The principal constituent ranges are accompanied by another set of ranges which break away from the main

**axes**in a westerly or even in a north-westerly direction.The north-west highlands of Donegal and the Ox Mountains, with their

**axes**of folding running north-east and south-west, invite comparison with the great chain of Leinster, but also with the Grampians and the backbone of Scandinavia.All across Ireland, from the Ballyhoura Hills on the Cork border to the southern shore of Belfast Lough, slaty and sandy Silurian beds appear in the

**axes**of the anticlinal folds, surrounded by Old Red Sandstone scarps or Carboniferous Limestone lowlands.Of the primitive

**axes**of Africa few traces remain.Metrical relations between the

**axes**, eccentricity, distance between the foci, and between these quantities and the co-ordinates of points on the curve (referred to the**axes**and the centre), and focal distances are readily obtained by the methods of geometrical conics or analytically.By varying the position of R other points can be found, and, since the curve is symmetrical about both the major and minor

**axes**, it is obvious that any point may be reflected in both the**axes**, thus giving 3 additional points.That this is not a necessary characteristic of light was discovered by Christian Huygens, who found that, whereas a stream of sunlight in traversing a rhomb of spar in any but one direction always gives rise to two streams of equal brightness, each of these emergent streams is divided by a second rhomb into two portions having a relative intensity dependent upon the position with respect to one another of the principal planes of the faces of entry into the rhombs - the planes through the

**axes**of the crystals perpendicular to the refracting surfaces.In conformity with the form of the path, the light is said to be elliptically polarized, rightor left-handedly as the case may be, and the

**axes**of the elliptic path are determined by the planes of maximum and minimum polarization of the light.In the case of a biaxal plate perpendicular to the bisector of the acute angle between the optic

**axes**, the curves of constant retardation are approximately Cassini's ovals, and the lines of like polarization are equilateral hyperbolae passing through the points corresponding to the optic**axes**.This state of things may, however, be considerably departed from if the

**axes**of optical symmetry of the crystal are different for the various colours.When the rings are coloured symmetrically with respect to two perpendicular lines the acute bisectrix and the plane of the optic

**axes**are the same for all frequencies, and the colour for which the separation of the**axes**is the least is that on the concave side of the summit of the hyperbolic brushes.Crossed, inclined and horizontal dispersion are characterized respectively by a distribution of colour that is symmetrical with respect to the centre alone, the plane of the optic

**axes**, and the perpendicular plane.With a biaxal plate perpendicular to the optic axis in the diagonal position, the hyperbolic brush becomes an hyperbolic line and the rings are expanded or contracted on its concave side, with a positive plate, according as the plane of the optic

**axes**is parallel or perpendicular to the axis of the quarter-wave plate, the reverse being the case with a negative plate.Again, a system of rings, similar to those of an uniaxal plate perpendicular to the axis, may be produced with a glass cylinder by transmitting heat from its surface to its

**axes**by immersion in heated oil, and glass that has been raised to a red heat and then cooled rapidly at its edges gives in polarized light an interference pattern of a regular form dependent upon the shape of the contour.When the light is circularly polarized or circularly analysed, a single plate gives two mutually enwrapping spirals, and similar spirals in circularly polarized light are obtained with plates of an active biaxal crystal perpendicular to one of the optic

**axes**.Its

**axes**are 951and 79 yds., and it is in the main cut in the rock, though some parts of it are built with concrete.The first book deals with the generation of the three conics; the second with the asymptotes,

**axes**and diameters; the third with various metrical relations between transversals, chords, tangents, asymptotes, &c.; the fourth with the theory of the pole and polar, including the harmonic division of a straight line, and with systems of two conics, which he shows to intersect in not more than four points; he also investigates conics having single and double contact.The fourteen-month term is an immediate result of the fact that the

**axes**of rotation and figure of the earth do not strictly coincide, but make with each other a small angle of which the mean value is about o 15".In describing a branching inflorescence, it is common to speak of the rachis as the primary floral axis, its branches as the secondary floral

**axes**, their divisions as the tertiary floral**axes**, and so on; thus avoiding any confusion that might arise from the use of the terms rachis, peduncle and pedicel.Here f is the termination of the primary axis, and this flower expands first, while the other flowers are developed centrifugally on separate

**axes**.H the secondary floral

**axes**give rise to tertiary ones, the raceme is branching, and forms a panicle, as in Yucca gloriosa.When the axis is so shortened that the secondary

**axes**arise from a common point, and spread out as radii of nearly equal length, each ending in a single flower or dividing again in a similar radiating manner, an umbel is produced, as in fig.From the primary floral axis a the secondary

**axes**come off in a radiating or umbrella-like manner, and end in small umbels b, which are called partial umbels or umbellules.A cymose inflorescence is an inflorescence where the primary floral axis before terminating in a flower gives off one or more lateral unifloral

**axes**which repeat the process - the development being only limited by the vigour of the plant.The floral

**axes**are thus centrifugally developed.At its base two leaves are produced, in each of which arise secondary

**axes**t' t', ending in single flowers, and at the base of these**axes**a pair of opposite leaves is produced, giving rise to tertiary**axes**1" t", ending in single flowers, and so on.When the

**axes**become very much shortened, the arrangement is more complicated in appearance, and the nature of the inflorescence can only be recognized by the order of opening of the flowers.But on examination it is found that there is a central flower expanding first, and from its axis two secondary

**axes**spring bearing solitary flowers; the expansion is thus centrifugal.In addition to the dichasial form there are others where more than two lateral

**axes**are produced from the primary floral axis, each of which in turn (From Strasburger's Lehrbuch der Botanik, by permission of Gustav Fischer.) FIG.Juncus, where numerous lateral

**axes**arising from the primary axis grow very strongly and develop in an irregular manner.In the uniparous cyme a number of floral

**axes**are successively developed one from the other, but the axis of each successive generation, instead of producing a pair of bracts, produces only one.The basal portion of the consecutive

**axes**may become much thickened and arranged more or less in a straight line, ns and thus collectively form an apparent or false axis or sympodium, and the inflorescence thus simulates a raceme.The false axis, a b c d, is formed by successive generations of unifloral

**axes**, the flowers being arranged along one side alternately and in a double row; had the bracts been developed they would have formed a similar double row on the opposite side of the false axis; the whole inflorescence is represented as curved on itself.In this case the

**axes**are not arranged in two rows along one side of the false axis, but are placed at regular intervals, so as to form an elongated spiral round it.Helicoid Cyme (

**axes**forming a spiral).These main Stigmarian

**axes**may be 2 to 3 ft.The morphology of Stigmaria has been much discussed; possibly the main

**axes**, which do not agree perfectly either with rhizomes or roots, may best be regarded as comparable with the rhizophores of Selaginellae; they have also been compared with the embryonic stem, or protocorm, of certain species of Lycopodium; the homologies of the appendages with the roots of recent Lycopods appear manifest.Binocular Instruments for Range-finding.-For measuring purposes binocular telescopes with parallel

**axes**are the only types employed.The cliffs bulged out over much of this area so from the catwalk and path above, most of the time, they were unable to see the bottom of the gorge and only a portion of the ice, although the voices of the climbers and the sound of their

**axes**, with the angle q measured from the horizontal x-axis.Thus it has a real centre, two foci, two directrices and two vertices; the transverse axis, joining the vertices, corresponds to the major axis of the ellipse, and the line through the centre and perpendicular to this axis is called the conjugate axis, and corresponds to the minor axis of the ellipse; about these

**axes**the curve is symmetrical.Referred to the centre this becomes Ax e +2Hxy+By 2 +C =o; and if the

**axes**of coordinates be the principal**axes**of the curve, the equation is further simplified to Ax e - By 2 = C, or if the semi-transverse axis be a, and the semiconjugate b, 'x' 2 /a 2 - y 2 /b 2 = I.Any attempt to interfere with these directions, by placing the seedlings in abnormal positions, is frustrated by the seedlings themselves, which change their direction of growth by bringing about curvatures of the different parts of their

**axes**, are preserved in the museum at Vannes.The acute bisectrix of the optic

**axes**never deviates from the normal to the basal plane by more than a degree or two, hence a cleavage flake of mica will always show an optic figure in convergent light when placed on the stage of a polarizing microscope.The diet of 1497 passed most of its time in constructing, and then battering to pieces with

**axes**and hammers, a huge wooden image representing the ministers of the crown, who were corrupt enough, but immovable, since they regularly appeared at the diet with thousands of retainers armed to the teeth, and openly derided the reforming endeavours of the lower gentry, who perceived that something was seriously wrong, yet were powerless to remedy it.If the equation of this line, referred to new coordinate

**axes**(a, b, c) being replaced by the topic parameters' (x, ?i, w), which are such that, combined with the axial angles, they enclose volumes which contain equal numbers of molecules.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.Ammonium iodide assumes cubic forms with perfect cubic cleavage; tetramethyl ammonium iodide is tetragonal with perfect cleavages parallel to {100} and {o01} - a difference due to the lengthening of the a
