Page 139 - ... powder, and that but a small one too ; so that all those nearly agree with the parabolic theory. Other experiments have also been carried on with the ballistic pendulum, at different times ; from which have been obtained some of the, laws for the quantity of powder, the weight and velocity of the ball, the length of the gun, &c. Namely, that the velocity of the ball varies as the square root of the charge directly, and as the square root of the weight of ball reciprocally ; and 'that, some rounds...

Also, the momentum, or quantity of motion in a moving body, is qv^ the product of the velocity and matter. It is also to be observed, that the theorems equally hold good for the destruction of motion and velocity, by means of retarding forces, as for the generation of the same, by means of Accelerating forces . And to the following problems, which are all resolved by the application...
