CHAPTER I – PARTICLE MECHANICS
Publisher Summary The fundamental concept of mechanics is that of motion of a body with respect to other bodies. The relativity of motion arises from the relativity of the concept of space itself.Expand

CHAPTER X – SOLUTIONS
Publisher Summary Solutions are mixtures of two or more substances in which the substances are mixed on the molecular scale. The relative amounts of the various substances in the mixture may varyExpand
THE THEORY OF SYMMETRY
This chapter explores the types of symmetry that a molecule can have. The symmetry of a body is determined by the assembly of all those rearrangements after which the body is unaltered; theseExpand

MOTION OF A RIGID BODY
A rigid body is defined in mechanics as a system of particles such that the distances between the particles do not vary. This condition can be satisfied only approximately by systems that actuallyExpand
MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF SOLIDS
Unlike liquids, solids resist both change in volume and change in shape; solids resist, therefore, any deformation. Work must be done even to change the shape alone of a solid, without altering itsExpand
DIFFUSION AND THERMAL CONDUCTION
This chapter discusses kinetic processes by means of which a state of equilibrium is reached. These are essentially irreversible processes because they bring a body closer to equilibrium. If aExpand

CHAPTER XV – VISCOSITY
Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the flow of liquid or gas in which the velocity of flow is different at different points. This is not an equilibrium state and processes will occur that tendExpand
