Thus it appears that there are many properties of motion , displacement , and

deformation , which may be considered altogether independently of force ,

chemical constitution , elasticity , temperature , magnetism , electricity ; and that

In this category we shall first take up the free motion of a point , then the motion of

a point attached to an inextensible cord , then the motions and displacements of

rigid systems — and finally , the deformations of solid and fluid

We have now to consider the very important kinematical conditions presented by

the changes of volume or figure experienced by a solid or liquid

group of points whose positions with regard to each other are subject to known ...

We shall have , later , most important and interesting applications to fluid motion ,

which will be proved to be instantaneously , or differentially , irrotational ; but

which may result in leaving a whole fluid
