Description

Sectional Committee: Mathematics

Not recommended for publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London'. The solution to the problems are 'now so well understood that it is hardly worthwhile publishing them unless there is some important physical application'. The law of friction assumed is unusual and gives results which are 'contrary to fact'.
