Page 367 - An oblique prism is equivalent to a right prism whose base is a right section of the oblique prism, and whose altitude is equal to a lateral edge of the oblique prism. Hyp. OM is a right section of oblique prism AD', and OM ' a right prism whose altitude is equal to a lateral edge of AD'. To prove AD' =0= GM' . Proof. The lateral edges of GM
Page 421 - The volume of a frustum of a circular cone is equivalent to the sum of the volumes of three cones whose common altitude is the altitude of the frustum and whose bases are the lower base, the upper base, and the mean proportional between the bases of the frustum. Let V denote the volume, B the lewer base, b the upper base, H the altitude of a frustum of a circular cone.

Page 449 - The arc of a great circle drawn from the vertex of an isosceles spherical triangle to the middle of the base is perpendicular to the base, and bisects the vertical angle.
