The Application of Mechanics to Geometry. Popular Lectures in Mathematics.
Kogan, B. Yu
Presented in this translation are three chapters. Chapter I discusses the composition of forces and several theorems of geometry are proved using the fundamental concepts and certain laws of statics. Chapter II discusses the perpetual motion postulate; several geometric theorems are proved using the postulate that perpetual motion is impossible. In Chapter III, the Center of Gravity, Potential Energy, and Work are discussed. (MK)
