Laws of motion sentence example
laws of motion
- He maintained that the laws of motion were necessary, not contingent.
- We begin by considering the laws of motion in the orbit itself, regardless of the position of the latter.
- John Kepler inferred that the planets move in their orbits under some influence or force exerted by the sun; but the laws of motion were not then sufficiently developed, nor were Kepler's ideas of force sufficiently clear, to admit of a precise statement of the nature of the force.
- He was several times a successful competitor for the prizes given by the Academy of Sciences of Paris; the subjects of his essays being: - the laws of motion (Discours sur les lois de la communication du mouvement, 1727), the elliptical orbits of the planets, and the inclinations of the planetary orbits (Essai d'une nouvelle physique celeste, 1735).
- Newton, according to Dr Pemberton, thought in 1666 that the moon moves so like a falling body that it has a similar centripetal force to the earth, 20 years before he demonstrated this conclusion from the laws of motion in the Principia.Advertisement
- Laws of Motion.-The action of a machine in transmitting force and motion simultaneously, or performing work, is governed, in common with the phenomena of moving bodies in general, by two laws of motion.
- The laws of motion of the ecliptic and equator are stated in the article Precession Of The Equinoxes.
- The formula for the obliquity of the ecliptic, as derived from the laws of motion of it and of the equator, may be developed in a series.
- Modern theoretical astronomy, taken in the most limited sense, is based upon Celestial Mechanics, the science by which, using purely deductive mechanical methods, the laws of motion of the heavenly bodies are derived by deductive methods from their mutual gravitation towards each other.
- Celestial Mechanics is, strictly speaking, that branch of applied mathematics which, by deductive processes, derives the laws of motion of the heavenly bodies from their gravitation towards each other, or from the mutual action of the parts which form them.Advertisement
- The motion of each body is then expressed in the first place by Newton's three laws of motion (see Motion, Laws Of, and Mechanics).
- The process of discovering the laws of motion of the particle then consists in the integration of these equations.
- They are the expression in the language of mathematics of Newton's first two laws of motion.
- Moreover, as a third advantage, these expressions are entirely free from those difficulties and ambiguities which are met with in every attempt to express the laws of motion in ordinary language.
- The organism in this way is regarded as a machine, constructed from the particles of the seed, which in virtue of the laws of motion have arranged themselves (always under the governing power of God) in the particular animal shape in which we see them.Advertisement
