Seite 292 - The effect of the error of inclination on the circle reading for any direction varies as the tangent of the altitude of the object observed. If the inclination is small, as it may always be by proper adjustment, its effect will be negligible in most cases. But if the objects differ much in altitude, as in azimuth work, the inclination of the axis must be carefully measured with the striding level, so that the proper correction can be applied. The following formula includes the corrections to the...
Seite 303 - A geometric condition of such figure is that the sums of the logarithmic sines of the angles about the base, taken in one direction, must equal the similar sums taken in the other direction, ie the product of the sines must be equal. In the present case, log.
Seite 393 - The last serves as plate No. 32 in Jefferys' " A General topography of North America and the West Indies," London, 1768, and as No. 18 in his "American Atlas " of 1775. About the same time (1776) I. Pownall, Governor of Pennsylvania, published in London a " General Map of the British Middle Colonies," which was engraved by T. Almon. The work, because of Pownall's position and his previous explorations, became an authority which was reproduced or acknowledged as a basis in most of the maps published...
Seite 62 - A few words only on the subject are here necessary. It is doubtful if in any but the most extreme cases it is necessary to continue this line of investigation. The results thus far obtained are sufficient for us to formulate general rules, and the average results obtained are so vastly in excess of all ordinary requirements that they may safely be ignored. A stone so weak as to be likely to crush in the walls of a building, or even in a window stool, cap or pillar, bears so visible marks of its unfitness...
