**spherical**surfaces.When well made such constructions are almost free from

**spherical**aberration, and the chromatic errors are very small.By introducing a dispersive lens of flint the magnifying glass could be corrected for both chromatic and

**spherical**aberrations.As shown in Lens and Aberration, for reproduction through a single lens with

**spherical**surfaces, a combination of the rays is only possible for an extremely small angular aperture.The aberrations, both

**spherical**and chromatic, increase very rapidly with the aperture.In other words, a sufficiently good and distinct image as the resolving power permits cannot be arrived at, until the elimination, or a sufficient diminution, of the

**spherical**and chromatic aberrations has been brought about.The

**spherical**aberrations, however, can be overcome, or at least so diminished that they are quite harmless, by forming appropriate combinations of lenses.Correction of the

**spherical**aberration in strong systems with very large aperture can not be brought about by means of a single combination of two lenses, but several partial systems are necessary.If, by these methods, a point in the optic axis has been freed from aberration, it does not follow that a point situated only a very small distance from the optic axis can also be represented without

**spherical**aberration depends FIG.By experiment Abbe proved that old, good microscope objectives, which by mere testing had become so corrected that they produced usable images, were not only free from

**spherical**aberrations, but also fulfilled the sine-condition, and were therefore really aplanatic systems.By using these glasses and employing minerals with special optical properties, it is possible to correct objectives so that three colours can be combined, leaving only a quite slight tertiary spectrum, and removing the

**spherical**aberration for two colours.A second method for diminishing the

All systems which are emitted from a single source can by a suitable optical device be directed that they simultaneously influence one and the same aether particle.Hence the importance of observing the length of the tube in strong systems. If the sine-condition is not fulfilled but the

**spherical**head of flowers, called a spadix (figure 2).Very low aspect ratio tokamaks are often called

**spherical**tokamaks.Be able to demonstrate the physical significance of closed shells by using plots of the

**spherical**harmonics.Note also that wormholes should look

**spherical**, not like tunnels !He declared that the Earth, which possessed a divine essence or ' world soul ', was perfectly

**spherical**in shape.They were

**spherical**with a diameter of 28 to 30 nm.This applies both to high speed low noise and to low speed tapered roller and

**spherical**roller bearings subject to shock or vibration loads.It further noted Culham 's world leadership in developing the

**spherical**tokamak concept.This contained work on planar and

**spherical**trigonometry originally done much earlier in about 1464.Unlike composting bins, that have a twenty-five or fifty gallon capacities, these

**spherical**composters have an amazing seventy-one gallon capacity.Today they're double-ended,

**spherical**or shaped into a tiny nib.A black liquid eyeliner can be applied on the top of the eyelid in a cat eye style to help lift the hooded lid while adding curve to the

**spherical**shape.Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes was the first mascara on the market with the

**spherical**brush.To do this, use a pre-molded cake pan, such as Wilton's Stand-Up Cuddly Bear Pan or a

**spherical**pan that will bake two halves of a round cake.Fruits are

**spherical**, purple black berries arranged in a large cluster.Since perfectly round pearls are very rare, many earrings utilize a near-round or

**spherical**shape instead that might be flattened on one side.This frame has interchangeable lenses and is dual

**spherical**.The

**spherical**lenses use ARC technology, while the cylindrical lenses are thermoformed, making them less expensive but also quite clear.Any of several species of

**spherical**bacteria that form pairs or chains.Staphylococcus-Any of several species of

**spherical**bacteria that occur in groups of four or in irregular clusters.The Scentbug's

**spherical**casing has dozens of pores on each side, allowing the fragrance to be evenly distributed by the small internal fan.The gem should be

**spherical**and symmetrical, though slightly elongated pearls can often be set into rings to disguise the malformation.The recent development of the "Revolution"

**spherical**design has been estimated to reduce concussions by 31 percent, a welcome improvement to a dangerous game.As the small filings produced by friction seek to pass through the interstices between the rapidly revolving

**spherical**particles in the vortex, they are detained and become twisted and channelled in their passage, and when they reach the edge of the inner ocean of solar dust they settle upon it as the froth and foam produced by the agitation of water gathers upon its surface.In Hydra viridis the polyp is of a green colour and produces a

**spherical**egg with a smooth shell which is dropped into the mud.On their material side they are not absolutely unextended, but

**spherical**.It may be in the form of an albumen crystal sometimes associated with a more or less

**spherical**bodygloboid-composed of a combination of an organic substance with a double phosphate of magnesium and calcium.The Structure of the Nucleus.In the living condition the resting nucleus appears to consist of a homogeneous ground substance containing a large number of small chromatin granules and one or more large

**spherical**granulesnucleolithe whole being surrounded by a limiting membrane which separates it from the cytoplasm.The Pythagorean school of philosophers adopted the theory of a

**spherical**earth, but from metaphysical rather than scientific reasons; their convincing argument was that a sphere being the most perfect solid figure was the only one worthy to circumscribe the dwellingplace of man.He divides geography into The

**Spherical**Part, or that for the study of which mathematics alone is required, and The Topical Part, or the description of the physical relations of parts of the earth's surface, preferring this division to that favoured by the ancient geographers - into general and special.Ptolemy Euergetes (247-222 B.C.) rendered the greatest service to geography by the protection and encouragement of Eratosthenes, whose labours gave the first ap proximate knowledge of the true size of the

**spherical**The .Amongst the earliest mechanical contrivances of Fraunhofer was a machine for polishing mathematically uniform

**spherical**surfaces.They are essentially

**spherical**, pear-shaped or oval sacs opening on to the exterior but closed at the coelomic end.In the former, the duct, leading from the ovarian sac, and swelling along its course into the

**spherical**sac, the "spermatheca," is highly suggestive of the oviduct and receptaculum of the Eudrilidae.It has simply been traced as far as the formation of a diblastula which acquires a ciliated band, and becomes a nearly

**spherical**trochosphere.The more highly organized species have often very numerous eyes (Amphiporus, Drepanophorus), which are provided with a

**spherical**refracting anterior portion, with a cellular " vitreous body," with a layer of delicate radially arranged rods, with an outer sheath of dark pigment, and with a separate nerve-twig each, springing from a common or double pair of branches which leave the brain as n.The latter enlarges into a

**spherical**stomach into which open the broad ducts of the so-called liver.The greatest of Gilbert's discoveries was that the globe of the earth was magnetic and a magnet; the evidence by which he supported this view was derived chiefly from ingenious experiments made with a

**spherical**lodestone or lerrella, as he termed it, and from his original observation that an iron bar could be magnetized by the earth's force.Some importance attaches to the form of the pollen grains; the two principal forms are ellipsoidal with longitudinal bands forming the Convolvulus-type, and a

**spherical**form with a spiny surface known as the Ipomaea-type.When parallel rays fall directly upon a

**spherical**mirror the longitudinal aberration is only about one-eighth as great as for the most favourably shaped single lens of equal focal length and aperture.In these instruments the lines are ruled upon a

**spherical**surface of speculum metal, and mark the intersections of the surface by a system of parallel and equidistant planes, o; of which the middle member passes through the centre of the sphere.The same method of representation is applicable to

**spherical**waves, issuing from a point, if the radius of curvature be large; for, although there is variation of phase along the length of the infinitesimal strip, the whole effect depends practically upon that of the central parts where the phase is sensibly constant.'It consisted of a

**spherical**glass vessel opening below by means of a stop-cock and narrow nozzle into the cylinder of an "exhausting syringe," which inclined upwards from the extremity of the nozzle.Every natural development of the

**spherical**form can be obtained by blowing and fashioning by hand.Although

**spherical**forms can be obtained without the use of moulds, moulds are now largely used for even the simplest kinds of tableware in order to economize time and skilled labour.Irrotational Motion in General.-Liquid originally at rest in a singly-connected space cannot be set in motion by a field of force due to a single-valued potential function; any motion set up in the liquid must be due to a movement of the boundary, and the motion will be irrotational; for any small

**spherical**element of the liquid may be considered a smooth solid sphere for a moment, and the normal pressure of the surrounding liquid cannot impart to it any rotation.Hill's

**spherical**vortex, advancing through the surrounding liquid with uniform velocity.He also showed that the total gravitation of the earth, assumed as

**spherical**, on external bodies, would be the same as if the earth's mass were concentrated in the centre.Until recently these

**spherical**lenses were numbered in terms of their focal length, the inch being used as the unit.The thurible, the proper ecclesiastical term for the vessel in the Western Church, is usually

**spherical**in form, though often square or polygonal, containing a small receptacle for the charcoal and covered by a perforated lid; it is carried and swung by three chains, a fourth being attached to the lid, thus allowing it to be raised at intervals for the volume of smoke to be increased.The animal body, if it be composed of many cells, follows a different architectural plan; the compact nature of its food, and the yielding nature of its cell-walls, result in a form of structure consisting essentially of tubular or

**spherical**masses of cells arranged concentrically round the food-cavity.The thinnest possible

**spherical**shell of metal, such as a sphere of insulator coated with gold-leaf, behaves as a conductor for static charge just as if it were a sphere of solid metal.It is a fundamental theorem in attractions that a thin

**spherical**shell of matter which attracts according to the potential law of the inverse square acts on all external points as of a if it were concentrated at its centre.Let R 1 be the radius of the inner sphere, R2 the inside radius of the outer sphere, and R2 the outside radius of the outer

**spherical**shell.The reader is also referred to an article by Lord Kelvin (Reprint of Papers on Electrostatics and Magnetism, p. 178), entitled " Determination of the Distribution of Electricity on a Circular Segment of a Plane, or

**Spherical**Conducting Surface under any given Influence," where another equivalent expression is given for the capacity of an ellipsoid.Then this produces a charge - Q on the inside of the enclosing

**spherical**shell, and a concentric charge +Q on the outside of the shell.The same reasoning can be applied to determine the electrical image of a point-charge of positive electricity in a

**spherical**surface, and therefore the distribution of induced electricity over a metal sphere connected to earth produced by a point-charge near it.If then we put a negative point-charge -qr/d at B, it follows that the

**spherical**surface will be a zero potential surface, for q rq 1 (24).Hence this charge is the electrical image of the charge +q at A in the

**spherical**surface.The molecules of gases for which n = o must accordingly be

**spherical**in shape and in internal structure, or at least must behave at collisions as though they were**spherical**, for they would otherwise be set into rotation by the forces experienced at collisions.Now this is exactly the shape which we should expect to find in molecules composed of two

**spherical**atoms distorting one another by their mutual forces, and all gases for which n=2 are diatomic.The

**spherical**blanks soon gave place to lenticular-shaped ones.The best known of these, which is called Legendre's theorem, is usually given in treatises on

**spherical**trigonometry; by means of it a small**spherical**triangle may be treated as a plane triangle, certain corrections being applied to the angles.They have characteristic conidiophores bearing numerous conidia, and also cleistothecia which are

**spherical**in form and yellowish in colour.They are sometimes

**spherical**(" shot bort ").This investigator just missed a great discovery, for he did not consider the

**spherical**forms to be living organisms but compared them with starch granules.The result of cleavage in all cases is a typical blastula, which when set free becomes oval and develops a flagellum to each cell, but when not set free, it remains

**spherical**in form and has no flagella.They are

**spherical**, oval, fusiform, or rod-like, and are always found in the cytoplasm, never in the cell-sap. They appear to be permanent organs of the cell, and are transmitted from one cell to another by division.For the subjects of this heading see the articles DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS; FOURIER'S SERIES; CONTINUED FRACTIONS; FUNCTION; FUNCTION OF REAL VARIABLES; FUNCTION COMPLEX; GROUPS, THEORY OF; INFINITESIMAL CALCULUS; MAXIMA AND MINIMA; SERIES;

**SPHERICAL**HARMONICS; TRIGONOMETRY; VARIATIONS, CALCULUS OF.The kettle is

**spherical**, and is suspended over a fire-place by a broad rim resting on a wall; it is usually of cast iron.A magnetizable substance was supposed to consist of an indefinite number of

**spherical**particles, each containing equivalent quantities of the two fluids, which could move freely within a particle, but could never pass from one particle to another.Ball,

**Spherical**Astronomy, p. 303.If the latitudes differ, we have to solve an oblique-angled

**spherical**triangle, of which two sides and the included angle are given.
