A Non Fiction Trilogy

GLOSSARY

A

Absolute velocity – see motion, absolute.

Accretion – the accumulation of particles into larger units.

Atom – (1) an element, a nucleus & electrons.   (2) a (supposedly) very small piece of indivisible solid matter.

Atomist – of or pertaining to atoms (2)

B

Body – same as particle (1)

C

Combined motion – see motion

Contrary motion – see motion

Curved Solid – Any non- polyhedrous three dimensional object.

D

Direct hits – two particles that hit each other with the motion of each particle directed toward the other.

Doublet – 2PP in contact at midpoints and traveling in unison motion.

E

Excess motion – any motion left in a particle after completing other motions, particularly that motion left after “removing” (from figuring) that motion it takes to keep up with another particle it is overtaking.

Extra(s) – individual primary particles that can end up across the middle of one or each face of a proto-nucleon.


F-G-H-I

Impact – the collision, by contact, of solid bodies (without forces), and the changes in motions caused by the same.

Impulse – the collision, by repulsive or attractive forces, of solid bodies, without contact.   And/or the change in motion of one body by forces acting on it from another.

J-K-L-M

Molecule – two or more atoms (1) held in association by shared electrons

Momentum – the product of mass x velocity

Motion – the movement of a particle across space.

            Absolute – the sum total of all the simultaneous motions of a particle, if such can be determined.

            Combined – the resultant motion (shown by a vector) of two or more simultaneous motions of a single body (represented by vectors).

            Contrary – two or more simultaneous [linear?] motions of a body in directions 900 or greater from each other.

            Dual – same as combined

N

Nucleon – a proton or neutron. See also proto-nucleon.

Nucleus – a very stable arrangement of nucleons “bound “to each other. This makes up the different elements and isotopes.

Newtonian Space – common space, unbounded (extending infinitely) in all directions (3-dimensional).

Newtonian Time – common time, “flowing’ at some universally constant rate.

N - nucleon primarily, nucleons, nucleus sometimes

O

Overtaking Hit – one particle colliding with another by overtaking the motion of the first.

Orbit, orbital motion – here used to describe a circular type motion, usually that in the 3P case.

 

P

Particles – (1) pieces of matter. (2) in this hypothesis same as primary particles.

Primary Particles – in this hypothesis, atoms of the same size and shape which are the ultimate constituents of all matter.

P or PP – particle or primary particle (same thing).

PP Flow - The "ether" the discontinuous flow of PP that occurs universe wide in uniform evenly spaced way, as so supposed in this hypothesis.

2P – Doublet (see under doublet).

3P – Triplet (see same).

Polyhedrous (a), Polyhedron (n)   – A three dimensional object with flat sides (faces).

Proto-nucleon – the arrangement here of 2 rows of 135 particles turned 900 to each other. Add the two “extras” and you have a complete nucleon.

Q-R

Rod(s) – same as primary particle(s).

Rod or rod shaped – same as cylindrical.

Ra – remaining or resulting value of rod A at pt of contact to C after motion has been transferred A to C.

Rp – total remaining momentum of Rod A

Rev – Revolutions

                       

S

Speed – see velocity

T

Torque - (dictionary definition) something that produces or tends to produce torsion or rotation.

 

Triplet – 3PP in contact traveling in unison motion (as in chapter 3).

Tp – total momentum of Rod A before transfer of motion to Rod C.

That pt – that point; refers to point of contact.

U-V

Velocity – the motion of a mass calculated as distance/time.   Commonly called speed.

Va – Value anypoint

Vc – Value imparted to Rod C

W-X-Y-Z

Window – the allowed direction of transfer of motion between two curved solids in contact.
