An Elementary Text-book of Hydrostatics


    THE portions of hydrostatics and pneumatics usually taught to beginners, and required for the matriculation examination of the London University, are concisely and clearly treated in this book. Though evidently constructed for examinational purposes, the book contains a number of good points. The mathematical formulæ are deduced from first principles instead of being stated dogmatically; so the student is led to rely more upon his real knowledge, and less upon mere memory. This and other commendable features distinguish the volume from ordinary text-books of hydrostatics, while the numerous problems, covering a wide field, furnish clear evidence of originality.
