**diameter**.When the head is given, Savart found the length to be proportional to the

**diameter**of the orifice.The pitch of the note, though not absolutely definite, cannot differ much from that which corresponds to the division of the jet into wave-lengths of maximum instability; and, in fact, Savart found that the frequency was directly as the square root of the head, inversely as the

**diameter**of the orifice, and independent of the nature of the fluid - laws which follow immediately from Plateau's theory.From the pitch of the note due to a jet of given

**diameter**, and issuing under a given head, the wave-length of the nascent divisions can be at once deduced.Reasoning from some observations of Savart, Plateau finds in this way 4.38 as the ratio of the length of a division to the

**diameter**is usually reckoned at about 4 in.In Glyptodon (with which Schistopleurum is identical) the tailsheath consists of a series of coronet-like rings, gradually diminishing in

**diameter**from base to tip. Daedicurus, in which the tailsheath is in the form of a huge solid club, is the largest member of the family; in Panochthus and Sclerocalyptus (Hoplophorus) the tail-sheath consists basally of a small number of smooth rings, and terminally of a tube.If cast-iron pillars are used, each successive pillar shall be bolted to the one below it by at least four bolts not less than three-fourths of an inch in

**diameter**, and the beams and girders shall be bolted to the pillars.Stems and roots increase in

**diameter**and weighing half a ton.The main ridge runs north and south along the line of the greatest

**diameter**, and from the heights descend many torrents, the v% hole island being well watered.Hence if the sun's

**diameter**were measured through differently coloured screens, the violet disk must appear greater than the red.Better determinations of the actual value came from the heliometer, and gave an angular

**diameter**of 31' 59.26" =0.10", and the value of the polar**diameter**exceeded the equatorial by 0.038" =0.023".Using the parallax 8.80", the resulting

**diameter**is in the discussion of the transit of Venus observations for 1874 and 1882.We cannot do this, but of happily the grains in a sand formation differ very widely in

**diameter**, and if, from the interstices between the larger grains in the neighbourhood of an orifice, we can remove the finer grains, the resistance to flow of water is at once enormously reduced.The brushes have the same

**diameter**, but one is much longer than the other, and they move independently of one another.The
