# momental

Adjective

(*comparative* more momental, *superlative* most momental)

Origin

Compare Old French *momental*.

- (9) Turning the axes to make them coincide with the principal axes of the area A, thus making f f xydA = o, xh = - a 2 cos a, y h = - b 2 sin a, (io) where ffx2dA=Aa2, ffy 2 dA= Ab 2, (II) a and b denoting the semi-axes of the
**momental**ellipse of the area. - This shows that the C.P. is the antipole of the line of intersection of its plane with the free surface with respect to the
**momental**ellipse at the C.G. - Within which the C.P. must lie when the area is immersed completely; the boundary of the core is therefore the locus of the antipodes with respect to the
**momental**ellipse of water lines which touch the boundary of the area. - An inclining couple due to moving a weight about in a ship will heel the ship about an axis perpendicular to the plane of the couple, only when this axis is a principal axis at F of the
**momental**ellipse of the water-line area A. - Of the wedge of immersion and emersion, will be the C.P. with respect to FF' of the two parts of the water-line area, so that b 1 b 2 will be conjugate to FF' with respect to the
**momental**ellipse at F.
