Abstract

THE beautiful result arrived at by Mr. Gosset thus gives an alternative very simple expression for the bend of any of five spheres in mutual contact, namely, /2 + 3, where denotes the sum of the bends of the other four, whilst the volume of the tetrahedron involved is (2)/(3). It applies in general to tetrahedra for which the sum of opposite pairs of edges is, for all three pairs, the same.
