Excerpt from A Treatise on Elementary Dynamics

In the following work I have attempted to write a fairly complete text-book on those parts of Dynamics which can be treated without the use of the Infinitesimal Calculus.

The hook is intended for the use of beginners, but it is probable that most students would find it advisable, at any rate on the first reading of the subject, to confine their attention to the examples given in the text, reserving most of the questions at the ends of the chapters for a second reading. Most students would also find it advisable to omit Chap. III., the last four articles of Chap. IV., and Chap. IX., until the rest of the book has been fairly mastered.

I have ventured to alter slightly the time-honoured enunciation of Newton's Second Law of Motion.

I have used the property of the hodograph in the chapter on normal acceleration and in dealing with the motion of a particle in a conic section with an acceleration directed towards the focus.
