Book Description ReInk Books, 2017. Softcover. Book Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1903 edition. Language: eng. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Investigations Representing the Departments, Vol. 9: Physics, Chemistry, Geology, Mathematics The fact that the velocity of light is so far beyond the conception of the human intellect, coupled with the extraordinary accuracy with which it may be measured, makes this determination one of the most fascinating problems that fall to the lot of the investigator. The experiment of measuring the velocity of light was originally devised by Arago, as a means of furnishing a crucial test between the two great rival theories of light. History has recorded the triumph of the undulatory theory, as the result of the classic experiments of Foucault and Fizeau. It was found in the course of these and subsequent experiments that the experimental determination of the absolute value (V) of the velocity of light was capable of so high a degree of accuracy that, instead of obtaining V by observations of the eclipses of Jupiter s satellites, or the aberration of the fixed stars, together with the astronomically calculated value of the Sun s distance (with results of relatively small accuracy), the process is exactly reversed; so that the experimental value of V, together with observed values of the light equation, or the constant of aberration, furnishes a far more accurate value of the Sun s distance than can be obtained by rare and costly expeditions for observing the transit of Venus. This appears quite clearly if we contrast the numbers given by Professor Harkness, which give the solar parallax as obtained from astronomical data, 8.78 .05, with the results given by Professor Todd of the same quantity as determined by the combination of velocity of light with the light equation or with the constant of aberration. In an article on Solar Parallax from the Velocity of Light, Professor D. P Todd gives the following resume of the determinations of the solar parallax from L, the light equation, and from a, the constant of aberration: The elements of sensible uncertainty considered are: 1. Uncertainty in the determination of terrestrial velocity of light . I am disposed to think that the limit of uncertainty of the velocity of light concluded above (299,920 kilometers) may be fairly taken at seventy kilometers. 2. Uncertainty in the coefficient of the light equation from observations of the satellites of Jupiter. . The amount of uncertainty is probably not far from one second of time. 3. Uncertainty in the constant of siderial aberration. I conceive that a variation of 0.025 in this well-determined constant will not be regarded far from the limit of uncertainty. . 4. Uncertainty in the relation of the absolute terrestrial velocity to the velocity in space. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
