A Non Fiction Trilogy

GLOSSARY

A

Absolute velocity – see motion, absolute.

Accretion – the accumulation of particles into larger units.

Aether-same as Ether

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

Ether-medium of some sort occupying space between known masses and facilitating there motion or other properties. In this hypothesis it is the Primary Particle flow (see same under P).

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.
