Excerpt from book: Fifteenth Annual Report of the Regents of the University of the State of New York on the Condition of the State Cabinet of Natural History. 8vo.?From the same. Scheikundige Verhandelingen en Onderzoekingen uitgegeven door G. J. Mulder. Derde Deel. Tweede Stuk. 8vo.?From the Author. Monday, 20th April 1863. Principal FORBES, Vice-President, in the Chair. The following Communications were read: ? 1. On the Conservation of Energy. By Professor Tait. (Abstract.) (This Lecture was given at the request of the Council.') What Matter or Force may be, we have not as yet the slightest idea. Matter is only known to us by the forces it exerts or resists. It is possible that there may be but one species of ultimate parts (molecules or atoms ?) of matter; but in the present state of chemical science, it is more philosophical to reason as if the ultimate parts of the various elementary bodies are distinct. However this may be, a particle of hydrogen, oxygen, sodium, or gold, exerts certain definite forces upon other particles; which forces, we have every reason to believe, will remain for ever unchanged, unless the so- called element should at some future time be decomposed. Now, for such elementary particles, change of position (grouping) or motion (relative) is the only affection we can conceive; and we must endeavour to deduce, from the relation between forces and the motions they produce, all the phenomena of nature, except perhaps some of those exhibited in living structures. All that is necessary for such an inquiry has been most distinctly laid down by Newton in his Axiomata, and the Scholia appended to them. A brief resume of what Newton has there done will lead us easily and naturally to the Conservation of Energy?though stated for visible motions only...
