Book Description ReInk Books, 2017. Softcover. Book Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1915 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.

Excerpt from The Use of the Slide Rule The examples have been taken largely from Hydraulics and Mechanics, and while the actual deld covered by specific problems is narrow, the idea has been to make them fundamental. It is hoped that these examples will serve the purpose of development better than the more specialized problems arising different branches of engineering.recording or computing data should force himself to express. By the number of significant figures in the result, the accuracy of that result. The frequent habit of carrying results to a greater number of significant figures than the data warrant comes perilously near to lying with figures; it certainly creates a wrong impression as to the accuracy of the result. Certain mathematical constants can, however, be computed to any number of significant figures; for instance a may be expressed as or On the other hand, certain physical constants are very uncertain, even in the third place. Take for example the weight of a cubic foot of water generally given as lbs.; conditions of temperature and solution may easily alter the last figure of the three. With recorded data, however, the number of significant figures, as well as their character, gives very definite information. If we say that light travels 186000 miles per second, we do not mean that it covers 186000 miles to within the smallest fraction of an inch in one second of time, but that the distance covered is nearer 186000 miles than it is 185000 or 187000, and the accuracy is expressed by three significant figures. In this particular instance, it will be noticed that the three zeros to the right of the six, may or may not be significant figures. To prevent this ambiguity it has been suggested that results like the above be written 186 X which obviates the difficulty. If, therefore, the slide rule will consistently give results to within of one per cent. Or to one part in a thousand, we have a right to use it where three significant figures are warranted in the result. The following rule given by Holman should be rigidly observed in all cases: If numbers are to be multiplied or divided, a given percentage error in one of them will produce the same percentage error in the result. This amounts to saying that all problems, involving data correct to three significant figures only, can be computed advantageously by means of the Slide Rule. The answer is not only near enough, but is as accurate as the data warrants. Of course, in cases when the slide rule is used as a more or less rough check on logarithmic or other calculations, these questions of accuracy do not apply. The consideration of a very simple example will serve to illustrate the rule as stated above. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
