Anonymous, "Popular Scientific Recreations, a storehouse of instruction and amusement: in which the Marvels of Natural Philosphy, Chemistry, Geology, Astronomy, etc., are explained and illustrated, mainly by means of pleasing experiments and attractive pastimes." Translated and enlarged from Gaston Tissandier, Les Recreations Scientifiques, New and Enlarged Edition [Ward, Lock, Bowden and co., London, 1882 (?)], p. 113. The statement does not appear in the original.

This expansion may be obtained from the basic equation by using M instead of M2, so that the term (∂D/∂M2)(dM2/dA) is replaced by (∂D/∂M)(dM/dA)=kA/L(∂D/∂M). ∂D/∂M is always evaluated for M = L, so that it is a constant, and this constant will probably not be far from unity, compared with the range of uncertainty in the value of k. For purposes of calculation in this section, it is assumed that ∂D/∂M = 1.
