**directly proportional**to the velocity and the mass of the particle and also to the sine of the latitude; hence it is zero at the equator and comes to a maximum at the poles.As with light the ratio involved in the second law is always equal to the ratio of the velocity of the wave in the first medium to the velocity in the second; in other words, the sines of the angles in question are

**directly proportional**to the velocities.This can be roughly estimated by observing the rate of change of temperature before and after the experiment, and assuming that the loss of heat is

**directly proportional**to the duration of the experiment and to the average excess of temperature.These investigations led him to the announcement of the fundamental law of action between elements of current, or currents in infinitely short lengths of linear conductors, upon one another at a distance; summed up in compact expression this law states that the action is proportional to the product of the current strengths of the two elements, and the lengths of the two elements, and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between the two elements, and also

**directly proportional**to a function of the angles which the line joining the elements makes with the directions of the two elements respectively.AdvertisementOhm introduced the clear idea of current strength as an effect produced by electromotive force acting as a cause in a circuit having resistance as its quality, and showed that the current was

**directly proportional**to the electromotive force and inversely as the resistance.In so far as the vibrations may be regarded as isochronous, the distance between consecutive corresponding points of the recurrent figure, or, as it may be called, the wavelength of the figure, is
