Not illustrated. 1890 edition. Excerpt: ...application, and that of Coffin, % designed especially for the measurement of indicator-diagrams, are also in common use, the two former mainly in Europe, the latter in the United States. They commonly operate by the combined sliding and rolling motion of a small measuring wheel which has a total rotation proportional to the.area enclosed by the figure the periphery of which it traverses. The integrating wheel, or roller, is best made of steel.

A very simple modification of the Amsler Planimeter, designed by Mr. J. W. See, is made especially for indicator work. The following are the maker's instructions, in detail, for using the most recent form of Amsler planimeter: I. Adjust the screw-centres upon which the index-roller D revolves, so that the roller works freely, and does not touch the vernier. The same care must also be taken with the centrepin C. Oil the screw-centres now and then. Care should be taken to prevent the tube B, the tracer F, and the point E from being bent, and also to see that the barrel D is kept uninjured. 2. To find the area of any figure, set the roller...
