By William Elwood Byerly

This is often an actual replica of a e-book released earlier than 1923. this isn't an OCR'd e-book with unusual characters, brought typographical error, and jumbled phrases. This booklet can have occasional imperfections equivalent to lacking or blurred pages, negative photographs, errant marks, and so forth. that have been both a part of the unique artifact, or have been brought through the scanning technique. We think this paintings is culturally vital, and regardless of the imperfections, have elected to convey it again into print as a part of our carrying on with dedication to the protection of revealed works around the world. We savor your realizing of the imperfections within the protection technique, and wish you get pleasure from this priceless e-book.

T h i s will b e a s s u m e d below. Let us determine t h e time derivative of the angular m o m e n t u m of a particle. T h e rule for differentiation of a product gives dL d, . dr dp Since dridt is t h e velocity ν of t h e particle, a n d ρ = mv, t h e first term is mv X ν = 0, b e c a u s e t h e vector p r o d u c t of a n y vector with itself is zero. In t h e second term t h e derivative dp/dt is, as we k n o w , the force F acting o n t h e particle. T h u s dLldt = r X F . T h e vector p r o d u c t r X F is called t h e torque given point O) and will b e d e n o t e d b y K : (relative to a Κ = r X F.

T h e potential energy of t h e interaction of t w o charges is therefore inversely proportional to t h e distance b e t w e e n them. 46 FIELDS [II §18. Electric field Since C o u l o m b ' s law involves the p r o d u c t of the c h a r g e s , the force exerted on a charge e by another charge can be p u t in the form F = ^E, w h e r e Ε is a v e c t o r independent of the charge e and d e t e r m i n e d only by the charge and the distance r b e t w e e n the charges e and ^ 1 .
