Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1799 edition. Excerpt: ...The moon's mean anomaly, corrected by the second equation j the figns and degrees are on the right and left of the table. The equation is found at the intersection of the arguments and is to be applied to the moon's longitude twice equated, by addition or subtraction, as expressed in the table, to give her true place in thtfelek-mayee or in her orbitl 10. Equation of the node. Argument, the moon's longitude thrice equated, diminished by that of the sun. The equation is to be added to, or subtracted from, the place os the node, as expressed in the table. In the fame table is a second column, entitled correclion of the node. The numbers from this is to be reserved and applied farther on. 11. The moon's fourth equation, or reduction from her orbit to the ecliptic. From the moon's longitude thrice equated, subtract the equated longitude of the node, the remainder is the argument of latitude, and this is also the argument of the fourth equation; which is to be subtracted, if the argument is in the first or third quarter, from the moon's place in her orbit; and if the argument is in the second or fourth quarter, added to the fame to give her longitude i- the mu muffil, i. c. reduced to the ecliptic. 12. Table of the moon's latitude, contains two columns, latitude and adjustment of the latitude. Both of these are to be taken out by the figns and degrees of the argument of latitude. Multiply Multiply into one another, the correction of the node and the adjustment of the latitude, and add the product to the latitude of the moon, as taken out of the table, to give the latitude correct; which is northern if the argument of latitude be in the sirst half of the zodiac, and vice versa. III. Tables of Saturn. 1--6. Contain the mean longitudes and motions...show more
