- Circles of these
**radii**are usually marked around the jack for convenience' sake. - The resistance to motion round a curve has not been so systematically studied that any definite rule can be formulated applicable to all classes of rolling stock and all
**radii**of curves. - It is the envelope of circles described on the central
**radii**of an ellipse as diameters. - Representing by P this position, it follows that the area of that portion of the ellipse contained between the
**radii**vectores FB and FP will bear the same ratio to the whole area of the ellipse that t does to T, the time of revolution. - The probable reason for the wall-lines being concentric is that lines passing over the
**radii**as nearly as possible at right angles are the shortest that can be laid on; they therefore use up a smaller quantity of silk and take a shorter time to spin than threads crossing the**radii**in any other direction; and at the same time they afford them the greatest possible support compatible with delicacy and strength of construction.
