**unit**of time in overcoming the friction of a pair of surfaces is the product of the friction by the velocity of sliding of the surfaces over each other, if that is the same throughout the whole extent of the rubbing surfaces.When the relative motion of the rubbing surfaces is one of rotation, the work of friction in a

**unit**of time, for a portion of the rubbing surfaces at a given distance from the axis of rotation, may be found by multiplying together the friction of that portion, its distance from the axis, and the angular velocity.To express this symbolically, let dii represent the area of a portion of a pair of rubbing surfaces at a distance r from the axis of their relative rotation; p the intensity of the normal pressure at du per

**unit**, and replace 3 lb - I - 5 lb - 7 lb +2 lb by (3+5-7+2) lb, the additions and subtractions being then performed by means of an addition-table.We may regard this as meaning the same as 5 X3 X7 lb, since 7 lb itself means 7 X 1 lb, and the lb is the

**unit**in each case.We may therefore conveniently take as our

**unit**, in place of x, a number y such that x=6y.For multiplication, for instance, we have the statement that, if P and Q are two quantities, containing respectively p and q of a particular

**unit**with which we are dealing.We cannot solve the equation 7X =4s.; but we are accustomed to subdivision of units, and we can therefore give a meaning to X by inventing a

**unit**w s.Here each member is a number, and the equation may, by the commutative law for multiplication, be written 2(x+I) - 4(x-2) This means that, whatever

**unit**A we take, 2(x+ I) A Sand 5 4(x-2) A are equal.Thus, if we have an equation P=Q, where P and Q are numbers involving fractions, we can clear of fractions, not by multiplying P and Q by a number m, but by applying the equal multiples P and Q to a number m as

**unit**, and it is to the alterations to which this is subject, under varying conditions of nutrition and stimulation, that the science of pathology must apply itself.According to our present knowledge of physiological and pathological processes, we must regard the cell as the ultimate biological

**unit**- a**unit**of structure and a**unit**of function; this was first put forward by Schleiden in 1838, and by Schwann in 1839, but we owe to Virchow the full recognition of the fundamental importance of the living cell in all the processes of life, whether in health or disease.Moreover, the splendid building is nearly always a

**unit**or group of such units "(§ 62).In the next place we must notice that electrification is a measurable magnitude and in electrostatics is estimated in terms of a

**unit**called the electrostatic**unit**of electric quantity.The

**unit**of mechanical force in the " centimetre, gramme, second " (C.G.S.) system of units is the dyne, which is approximately equal to 1/981 part of the weight of one gramme.A very small sphere is said then to possess a charge of one electrostatic

**unit**of quantity, when it repels another similar and similarly electrified body with a force of one dyne, the centres being at a distance of one centimetre, provided that the spheres are in vacuo or immersed in some insulator, the dielectric constant of which is' taken as unity.This provides us with a definition of a

**unit**of electric force, for it is the strength of an electric field at that point where a small conductor carrying a**unit**charge is acted upon by**unit**mechanical force, assuming the dielectric constant of the surrounding medium to be unity.If we consider a very small conductor charged with a

**unit**of positive electricity to be placed in an electric field, it will move or tend to move under the action of the electric force in a certain direction.We may define the term potential difference otherwise by saying that it is the work done in carrying a small conductor charged with one

**unit**of electricity from one point to the other in a direction opposite to that in which it would move under the electric forces if left to itself.Suppose then that we have a conductor charged with electricity,we may imagine its surface to be divided up into small unequal areas, each of which carries a

**unit**charge of electricity.If we consider lines of electric force to be drawn from the boundaries of these areas, they will cut up the space round the conductor into tubular surfaces called tubes of electric force, and each tube will spring from an area of the conductor carrying a

**unit**electric charge.Hence the charge on the conductor can be measured by the number of

**unit**electric tubes springing from it.These surfaces are called "equipotential" or "level surfaces," and we may so locate them that the potential difference between two adjacent surfaces is one

**unit**of potential; that is, it requires one absolute**unit**of work (I erg) to move a small body charged with one**unit**of electricity from one surface to the next.Accordingly the number of electric cells into which the space round is cut up is equal to twice the energy stored up, or each cell contains half a

**unit**of energy.By the surface density of electrification on a conductor is meant the charge per

**unit**of area, or the number of tubes of electric force which spring from**unit**area of its surface.The potential of a conductor has already been defined as the mechanical work which must be done to bring up a very small body charged with a

**unit**of positive electricity from the earth's surface or other boundary taken as the place of zero potential to the surface of this conductor in question.The quantity of electricity which must be given to the sphere to raise it to

**unit**potential is therefore R electrostatic units.I It is an interesting fact that Cavendish measured capacity in " globular inches," using as his

**unit**the capacity of a metal ball, in.The

**unit**of electrostatic capacity is therefore that of a sphere of I cm.This

**unit**is too small for practical purposes, and hence a**unit**of capacity 900,000 greater, called a microfarad, is generally employed.If, however, we defined the strength of the source by the statement that the strength divided 1 The beginner is often puzzled by the constant appearance of the factor 47r in electrical theorems. It arises from the manner in which the

**unit**quantity of electricity is defined.A tube so chosen that EdS for one section has a value unity, is called a

**unit**tube, since the product of force and section is then everywhere unity for the same tube.Since the potential of a conductor is defined to be the work required to move a

**unit**of positive electricity from the surface of the earth or from an infinite distance from all electricity to the surface of the conductor, it follows that the work done in putting a small charge dq into a conductor at a potential v is v dq.Suppose that the dielectric has a constant K, then we must multiply both sides by K and the expression for the energy per

**unit**of volume of the field is equivalent to z DE where D is the displacement or polarization in the dielectric.The customary

**unit**of expenditure is the threepenny-bit or "tickey."He therefore employed the corresponding expression for a cycle of infinitesimal range dt at the temperature t in which the work dW obtainable from a quantity of heat H would be represented by the equation dW =HF'(t)dt, where F'(t) is the derived function of F(t), or dF(t)/dt, and represents the work obtainable per

**unit**of heat per degree fall of temperature at a temperature t.If we consider any short length of the stream bounded by two imaginary cross-sections A and B on either side of the plug,

**unit**of measurement.But an area or a volume cannot generally be measured by successive applications of the

**unit**of area or volume; intermediate processes are necessary, the result of which is expressed by a formula.The failure seems (§ 2) to be due to difficulty in realizing the numerical expression of an area or a solid in terms of a specified

**unit**, while the same difficulty does not arise in the case of linear measure or liquid measure, where the number of units can be ascertained by direct counting.But catholicity of feeling is inherent in the congregational idea of the church, inasmuch as it knows no valid use of the term intermediate between the local

**unit**is the gold colon weighing 778 gramme, 900 fine, and thus worth about 23d.The International Geodetic Committee have adopted the metre as their

**unit**of measurement.In the absence of the actual standards of ancient times the units of measure and of weight have to be inferred from the other remains; hence

**unit**in this division is used for any more or less closely defined amount of length or weight in terms of which matter was measured.The usual arrangement by countries has been mainly abandoned in favour of following out each

**unit**as a whole, without recurring to it separately for every locality.Vases may also be found bearing such relations to one another as to show their

**unit**of volume.Another defect in the evidence of coins is that, when one variety of the

**unit**of weight was once fixed on for the coinage, there was (barring the depreciation) no departure from it, because of the need of a fixed value, and hence coins do not show the range and character of the real variations of units as do buildings, or vases, or the actual commercial weights.Buildings at Persepolis, all of nearly the same age, vary in

**unit**1 in 450 (25).Hence we see that if one

**unit**is derived from another it may be possible, by the similarity or difference of the forms of the curves, to discern whether it was derived by general consent and recognition from a standard in the same condition of distribution as that in which we know it, or whether it was derived from it in earlier times before it became so varied, or by some one action forming it from an individual example of the other standard without any variation being transmitted.It should be borne in mind that in early times the larger values, such as minae, would be transmitted by commerce, while after the introduction of coinage the lesser values of shekels and drachmae would be the units; and this needs notice, because usually a borrowed

**unit**was multiplied or divided according to the ideas of the borrowers, and strange modifications thus arose.Sir C. Warren has derived a primitive

**unit**from a proportion of the human body, by ascertaining the probable mean height of the ancient people in Egypt, and so thereby has derived a standard from the stature of man.It is curious, however, to find that an ancient nation of the East, so wise in geometrical proportions, should have followed what by modern experience may be regarded as an inverse method, that of obtaining a

**unit**of length by deducing it through weights and cubic measure, rather than by deriving cubic measure through the**unit**of length.This

**unit**is also recorded by cubit lengths scratched on a tomb at Beni Hasan (44), and by dimensions of the tomb of Ramessu IV.Babylonia had this

**unit**nearly as early as Egypt.Asia Minor had this

**unit**in early times-in the temples of Ephesus 20.55, Samos 20.62; Hultsch also claims Priene 20.90, and the stadia of Aphrodisias 20.67 and Laodicea 20.94.In Greece it is the most usual

**unit**, occurring in the Propylaea at Athens 12.44, temple at Aegina 12.40, Miletus 12.51, the Olympic course 12.62, &c. (18); thirteen buildings giving an average of 12.45, mean variation .06 (25), = (3/5)ths of 20.75, m.On the Egyptian cubits a small cubit is marked as about 17 in., which may well be this

**unit**, as (5/6)ths of 20.6 is 17.2; and, as these marks are placed before the 23rd digit or 17.0, they cannot refer to 6 palms, or 17.7, which is the 24th digit, though they are usually attributed to that (33).As a

**unit**of 1.013, decimally multiplied, is most commonly to be deduced from the ancient Persian buildings, we may take 25.34 as the nearest approach to the ancient Persian**unit**.The Egyptian cubits have an arm at 15 digits or about 10.9 marked on them, which seems like this same

**unit**(33).Apparently the same

**unit**is found (18) at Heraclea in Lucania, 21.86; and, as the general foot of the South Italians, or Oscan foot (18), best defined by the 100 feet square being (3/10)ths of the jugerum, and therefore = 10.80 or half of 21.60.The Gallic leuga, or league, is a different

**unit**, being 1.59 British miles by the very concordant itinerary of the Bordeaux pilgrim.In Roman times the artaba remained (Didymus), but 1/6 was the usual

**unit**(name unknown), and this was divided down to 1/24 or 1/144 artaba (35) -- thus producing by 1/12 artaba a working equivalent to the xestes and sextarius (35).A few barrel weights are found at Karnak, and several egg-shaped shekel weights at Gebelen (44); also two cuboid weights from there (44) of 1 and 10 utens are marked as 6 and 60, which can hardly refer to any

**unit**but the heavy shekel, giving 245.On the Aegean coast it often occurs in early coinage (17) -- at Lampsacus 131-129, Phocaea 256-254, Cyzicus 252-247, Methymna 124.6, &c. In later times it was a main

**unit**of North Syria, and also on the Euxine, leaden weights of Antioch,(3), Callatia and Tomis being known (38).At Corinth the

**unit**was evidently the Assyrian and not the Attic, being 129.6 at the earliest (17) (though modified to double Attic, or 133, later) and being divided by 3, and not into 2 drachms. And this agrees with the mina being repeatedly found at Corcyra, and with the same standard passing to the Italian coinage (17) similar in weight, and in division into 1/3 -- the heaviest coinages (17) down to 400 B.C. (Terina, Velia, Sybaris, Posidonia, Metapontum, Tarentum, &c.) being none over 126, while later on many were adjusted to the Attic, and rose to 134.It is usually the case that a

**unit**lasts later in trade than in coinage; and the prominence of this standard in Italy may show how it is that this mina (18 unciae = 7400) was known as the "Italic" in the days of Galen and Dioscorides (2).If this

**unit**haS any connexion with the kat, it is that a kat of gold is worth 15 shekels or 1/4 mina of silver; this agrees well with the range of both units, only it must be remembered that 129 was used as gold**unit**, and another silver**unit**deduced from it.The silver bars found at Troy averaging 2744, or 1/3 mina of 8232, have been attributed to this

**unit**(17); but no division of the mina in 1/3 is to be expected, and the average is rather low.That this

**unit**(commonly called Phoenician) is derived from the 129 system can hardly be doubted, both being so intimately associated in Syria and Asia Minor.Hence the 224

**unit**seems to have been formed from the 129, after the main families or types of that had arisen.Under the Ptolemies, however, it became the great

**unit**of Egypt, and is very prominent in the later literature in consequence (18, 35).The "argenteus" (as Revillout transcribes a sign in the papyri) (35) was of 5 shekels, or 1090; it arose about 440 B.C., and became after 160 B.C. a weight

**unit**for copper.From Phoenicia this naturally became the main Punic

**unit**; a bronze weight from Iol (18), marked 100, gives a drachma of 56 or 57 (224-228); and a Punic inscription (18) names 28 drachmae = 25 Attic, and therefore 57 to 59 grains (228-236); while a probably later series of 8 marble disks from Carthage (44) show 208, but vary from 197 to 234.That this

**unit**is quite distinct from the Persian 86 grains is clear in the Egyptian weights, which maintain a wide gap between the two systems. Next, in Syria three inscribed weights of Antioch and Berytus (18) show a mina of about 16,400, or 200 x 82.Farther west the same

**unit**occurs in several Greek weights (44) which show a mina of 7800 to 8310, mean 8050/100 = 80.5.But we are now able to prove that it was an independent system -- (1) by its not ranging usually over 200 grains in Egypt before it passed to Greece; (2) by its earliest example, perhaps before the 224

**unit**existed, not being over 208; and (3) by there being no intermediate linking on of this to the Phoenician**unit**in the large number of Egyptian weights, nor in the Ptolemaic coinage, in which both standards are used.So we have thus a weight of 207-191 in Egypt on marked weights, joining therefore completely with the Aeginetan

**unit**in Egypt of 199 to 186, and coinage of 199, and strongly connected with Syria, where a double mina of Sidon (18) is 10,460 or 50 x 209.2.Ionia (197); while the coinage of Aegina, (17, 12), which by its wide diffusion made this

**unit**best known, though a few of its earliest staters go up even to 207, yet is characteristically on the lower of the two groups which we recognize in Egypt, and thus started what has been considered the standard value of 194, or usually 190, decreasing afterwards to 184.In the Hellenic coinage it varies (18) from a maximum of 200 at Pharae to 192, usual full weight; this

**unit**occupied (17) all central Greece, Peloponnesus and most of the islands.Hence, although the two groups overlap owing to their nearness, it is impossible to regard them as all one

**unit**.The type of the grouping is not alike in different places, showing that no distinct families had arisen before the diffusion of this

**unit**in Egypt; but the usual range is 65.5 to 69.0.Next it is found at Troy (44) in three cases, all high examples of 68.2 to 68.7; and these are very important, since they cannot be dissociated from the Greek Attic

**unit**, and yet they are of a variety as far removed as may be from the half of the Assyrian, which ranges there from 123.5 to 131; thus the difference of**unit**between Assyrian and Attic in these earliest of all Greek weights is very strongly marked.At Athens a low variety of the

**unit**was adopted for the coinage, true to the object of Solon in depreciating debts; and the first coinage is of only 65.2, or scarcely within the range of the trade weights (28); this seems to have been felt, as, contrary to all other states, Athens slowly increased its coin weight up to 66.6, or but little under the trade average.This

**unit**passed also into Italy, the libra of Picenum and the double of the Etrurian and Sicilian libra (17); it was there divided in unciae and scripulae (44), the mean of 6 from Italy and Sicily being 6600; one weight (bought in Smyrna) has the name "Leitra" on it.The "tola" (180 grains) is properly the Government

**unit**of weight for currency; and 80 tolas make the "Government seer."For engineering and manufacturing purposes the more important linear gauges are, however, now used, adjusted to some fundamental

**unit**of measure as the inch; although in certain trades, as for wires and flat metals, gauges continue to be used of arbitrary scales and of merely numerical sizes, having no reference to a legal**unit**of measure; and such are rarely accurate.Instruction in the principles of the metric system, and in the advantages to be gained from uniformity in the method of forming multiples and sub-multiples of the

**unit**, are, under this Code, to be given to the scholars in Standards IV., V., VI.By a law of the 9th of December 1904, promulgated by an executive decree of the 25th of March 1905, the gold standard was adopted, and the silver peso, 9027 fine and containing 24.438 grammes of pure silver, was made the monetary

**unit**with a valuation of .75 grammes of gold.Kutais is divided into seven districts, of which the chief towns, with their populations in 1897, are Kutais, capital of the province (q.v.); Lailashi (834), chief;town of Lechgum, of which Svanetia makes a separate administrative

**unit**; Ozurgeti (4694); Oni, chief town of Racha; Senaki (Ioi); Kvirili, of Sharopan district; Zugdidi; and two semi-military districts - Batum (28,512) with Artvin (7000) and Sukhum-kaleh (7809).A voltmeter isan instrument for measuring difference of electric potential in terms of the

**unit**called a volt.Since there are 8760 hours in a year, if such an instrument were connected continuously to the circuit it would take up energy equal to 263,000 watt-hours, or 260 Board of Trade units per annum, If the cost of production of this energy was only one penny per

**unit**, the working expenses of keeping such a voltmeter in connexion with a circuit would therefore be more than £i per annum, representing a capitalized value of, say, £io.The curia voted as a single

**unit**and thus furnished the type for that system of group-voting which runs through all the later organization of the popular assemblies.The silver peso, or dollar, of 100 centavas is the monetary

**unit**, weighs 25 grammes.New England is a

**unit**, though a diversified**unit**.As in the north-east, so in the south-west, the crystalline belt widens and gains in height; but while New England is an indivisible

**unit**; they are of diverse structure and of various stages of erosional development.The relative excess of males in each

**unit**of population has not constantly progressed, but has been continuous.In the Southern states the county is the local administrative

**unit**, and in addition to its original judicial and financial functions it has now also control over public schools, the care of the poor and the construction and mana,gement of roads.For in such a construction every point of the figure is obtained by the intersection of two straight lines, a straight line and a circle, or two circles; and as this implies that, when a

**unit**of length is introduced, numbers employed, and the problem transformed into one of algebraic geometry, the equations to be solved can only be of the first or second degree, it follows that the equation to which we must be finally led is a rational equation of even degree.One cannot even describe the climate of a single province, like Ontario or British Columbia, as a

**unit**, as it varies so greatly in different parts.This difference is very large compared with the smallness of the

**unit**.The permanent committee of the Paris International Congress of 1900, which was held for the purpose of unification of the numerotage of counts, unanimously decided - (a) With reference to cotton, silk and other textiles spun from fibres, that they should be based on a fixed weight and variable length, the

**unit**being one metre to one gramme.The length of skein adopted was 450 metres and the

**unit**of length the half decigramme.The quantity N may serve to fix the third fundamental

**unit**.In Ine's Laws (cap. 70) we find a list of payments specified for a

**unit**of ten hides, perhaps the normal holding of a twelfhynde man - though on the other hand it may be nothing more than a mere fiscal**unit**in an aggregate of estates.The

**unit**was the sulung (aratrum) or ploughland (from sulk, " plough"), the fourth part of which was the geocled or geoc (jugum), originally a yoke of oxen.The hide itself, which was the regular

**unit**in the other kingdoms, usually contained 120 acres in later times and was divided into four girda (virgatae) or yardlands.By the time of Ine, however, pending, pen(n)ing (" penny "), had already come into use for the latter, while, owing to the temporary disappearance of a gold coinage, scilling had come to denote a mere

**unit**of account.It was, however, a variable

**unit**, for the Kentish shilling contained twenty sceattas (pence), while the Mercian contained only four.In Northumbria a totally different monetary system prevailed, the

**unit**being the terms, which contained three sceattas or pence.In the former case the mancus was the usual

**unit**of calculation.Generally speaking, however, each tribe formed a political

**unit**in itself, and the combinations brought together from time to time in the hands of powerful kings were liable to fall to pieces after the first disaster.During his first period of discovery, besides the induction of electric currents, Faraday established the identity of the electrification produced in different ways; the law of the definite electrolytic action of the current; and the fact, upon which he laid great stress, that every

**unit**of positive electrification is related in a definite manner to a**unit**of negative electrification, so that it is impossible to produce what Faraday called "an absolute charge of electricity" of one kind not related to an equal charge of the opposite kind.It is found that this gives a consistent result; that is to say, if by an experiment with two particles A and B we get the ratio of their masses, and by an experiment with B and a third particle C we get the ratio of the masses of B and C, and thus the ratio of the masses of A and C, we should get the same ratio by a direct experiment with A and C. For the numerical measure of mass that of some standard body is chosen as a

**unit**, and the masses of other bodies are obtained by comparison with this.That would provide a useful name for an important geographical

**unit**, but is too misleading.If in

**unit**mass of any phase we have n components instead of one we must know the amount of n - I components present in that**unit**mass before we know the exact composition of it.Let us Freezing freeze out

**unit**mass of solvent from a solution at its freezing point T - dT and remove the ice, which is assumed to be the ice of the pure solvent.Hence the osmotic pressure is measured by the work done per

**unit**change of volume of the solution.Let us imagine

**unit**mass of solution of volume V confined in a cylinder ABC between a fixed vapour sieve B and a solid piston A A B C FIG.Callendar has shown that the variation of vapour pressure of a solution with pressure is given by the expression V'dP = vdp, where V' is the change in volume of the solution when

**unit**mass of solvent is mixed with it.The chief difficulty lies in the determination of the quantity V', the change in volume the solution under the pressure Po when

**unit**mass of solvent is mixed with it.In the equation dP/dT= X/T(v 2 - v 1), P is the osmotic pressure, T the absolute temperature and X the heat of solution of

**unit**mass of the solute when dissolving to form a volume v2 - v1 of saturated solution in an osmotic cylinder.If l is the heat of dilution per

**unit**change of volume in a calorimeter where all the energy goes to heat, the change in internal energy U is measured by ldv.The quantity of substance which diffuses through

**unit**area in one second may be taken as proportional to the difference in concentration between the fluids at that area and at another parallel area indefinitely near it.The resistance offered by the liquid, and therefore the force F, required to drive one grammemolecule through the liquid with

**unit**velocity is the sum of the corresponding quantities for the individual ions.Now the velocities u and v of the opposite ions under

**unit**potential gradient, and therefore U and V under**unit**force, are known from electrical data.In the Heraeum at Olympia, it may be remarked, the

**unit**adopted was not this Olympian foot, but an older one of 0.297 metre, and in the temple of Zeus an Attic foot of 1.08 English foot was used.Assuming the materials to be of equal tensile strength per

**unit**of area - hard-drawn copper is stronger, but has a lower conductivity - the adoption of aluminium thus leads to a reduction of 52% in the weight, a gain of 60% in the strength, and an increase of 26% in the diameter of the conductor.When the price of aluminium is less than double the price of copper aluminium is cheaper than copper per

**unit**of electric current conveyed; but when insulation is necessary, the smaller size of the copper wire renders it more economical.The level at which it is desired to keep the water in these ditches constitutes the

**unit**of water measurement for the polder, and is called the polder's zomer peil (Z.P.) or summer water-level.Owing to the shrinkage of the soil in reclaimed lands, however, that is, lands which have been drained after fen or other reclamation, the sides of the polder are often higher than the middle, and it is necessary by means of small dams or sluices to make separate water-tight compartments (afpolderingen), each having its own

**unit**of measurement.Large size has here, as in most metallurgical operations, not only its usual advantage of economy of installation, labour and administration per

**unit**of product, but the further very important one that it lessens the proportion which the outer heat-radiating and hence heatwasting surface bears to the whole.In this system there is for each ingot and each mould only one handling in which it is moved as a separate

**unit**, the mould from one train to the other, the ingot from its train into the furnace.
