C. Mathematics.

1. Mechanics and Mechanism.

1. Enunciate the parallelogram of forces; and, assuming it true for the direction, prove it for the magnitude of the resultant.

Forces are represented by the lines OA, OB, OC, OD: shew that their resultant is 40G, G being a point which remains fixed so long as A, B, C, D are fixed.

2. Find the centre of gravity (1) of particles placed at the angular points of a triangle, whose weights are proportional to the opposite sides, (2) of the portion of a square lamina from which a triangular piece has been cut off by a line through an angular point and the middle point of one of the opposite sides.

3. In the common balance, the weights being unequal, find the position in which it will rest. Hence determine the

stability and sensibility of the balance.

4. Find the relation between P and W in that system of pulleys where each pulley hangs by a separate string, neglecting the weight of the pulleys.

If in this system W be raised or depressed, shew that the centre of gravity of P and W remains in the same position.

5. Define acceleration.

How is it measured?

Prove that the space described by a body uniformly accelerated from rest is equal to half the space it would describe in the same time with the last acquired velocity continued uniform.

6. A heavy particle is projected from a given point with a given velocity, what is the nature of its path?

A particle after sliding down an inclined plane moves in a parabola of given latus rectum; find the length of the plane in order that the focus of the parabola may be vertically below the point from which the particle started.

7. Draw any two vertical circles touching each other at P, their highest point, and let a chord through P cut them in A and B. Let T and T2 be the times of descent from P to A and P to B respectively. Prove that T2-T2 is proportional to the difference of the diameters of the circles.

8. Describe exactly what takes place when two elastic bodies impinge upon one another.
