Archimedes, the heart of Gravity, and the 1st legislation of Mechanics: The legislation of the Lever offers with the main basic features of physics. The publication describes the most occasions within the lifetime of Archimedes and the content material of his works. It is going directly to speak about a good number of experiments on the subject of the equilibrium of suspended our bodies less than the impression of Earth's gravitational strength.

2 . 17) For any vector a, we have a = (a · e ^ + (a · e2)e2 + (a · e3)e3 Accordingly, ej = (e; · e^ej + (c{ · e2)e2 + (e{ · e3)e3 = aneY + ai2e2 + a i 3 e 3 on using the definition of au. 18) «33 On the other hand, [el, e 2 , ej] = (ei x e£) · ej = ej · ej = 1. 17) show that [a 0 ] is a proper orthogonal matrix. The coordinate transformations determined by (Xij are therefore called proper orthogonal transformations. Only such coordinate transformations are dealt with in our further discussions; we will refer to them simply as coordinate transformations (with no adjective).

Then, these individual numbers are called the Cartesian tensor components in the coordinate system in which they are defined. For a Cartesian tensor of order N (>0), there exist 3^ components in every Cartesian coordinate system. While the tensor components are always defined with respect to one or another coordinate system, the tensor as such is an entity by itself; it depends on no coordinate system whatsoever. 5 TERMINOLOGY AND NOTATION Henceforth, a Cartesian tensor will be referred to simply as a tensor.
