These notes written by James Dinwiddie between October 8 and November 24, 1807 are from a series of anatomy lectures given by W. Taunton. The lectures cover the skeletal system and various organs as well as military medicine in the field.
This series of notes written by James Dinwiddie focuses on astronomy. Dinwiddie discusses the properties of the moon and outlines the lunar cycle as well as the phenomenon of comets. He provides a list of well known astronomers and their publications including Isaac Newton, Rene Descartes, Johannes Kepler, Socrates, Nicolas Copernicus, Otto Guernicke, Galileo, Ptolemy, and Edmond Halley.
These lecture notes written by James Dinwiddie discuss a number of topics related to the military including fortifications, ballistics, redoubts, and the Macedonian Phalanx. Dinwiddie mentions various materials for building fortifications, armour, and weapons. He also records the arrangement of the Macedonian Phalanx.
These notes written by James Dinwiddie focus on matter. The notes are split into three sections; the first deals with the properties of matter including various propositions. The second discusses the perserverance of matter or what happens when forces are applied. The final section deals with the powers of matter and involves inertia and resistance.
These notes written by James Dinwiddie concern "Elementary Bodys [sic]". Dinwiddie briefly discusses chemical compositions in one set of notes. In the second set, he discusses motion and the necessity of experimentation in understanding nature.
These notes written by James Dinwiddie focus on experiments involving air; he documents his procedures as well as the results. Dinwiddie includes a hand-drawn diagram of various scientific apparatus at the front of the notes.
These notes written by James Dinwiddie examine a number of topics in physics including light, motion, matter, hydraulics, and hydrostatics as well as a treatise on Nature from the points of view of philosophy, art, and theology.
Item is an inaugural lecture delivered by chemistry professor George Lawson at the opening of the third summer session of Dalhousie College's medical faculty. The lecture has been transcribed and published in pamphlet form.
This introductory lecture written by James Dinwiddie discusses natural philosophy. Dinwiddie draws on past philosophers including Rene Descartes, Plato, and John Locke to describe Nature and man's relationship with her.
These notes written by James Dinwiddie focus on topics in mechanics such as gravity, momentum, compound engines, and Ferguson's machine as well as matter, magnetism, electric shock, and capillary action in the introductory section.
These lecture notes written by James Dinwiddie in 1783 (?) note various astronomical systems including the Ptolemaic and Copernican as well as Kepler's, Newton's, and Descartes' theories on planetary motion.
These lecture notes written by James Dinwiddie in 1787 (?) discuss the study of pneumatics. He notes its connection with air and the atmosphere. Dinwiddie records several experiments involving barometers, fountains, and pumps.
These notes written by James Dinwiddie outline twenty lectures on topics in physics including motion, gravity, force, and acceleration. The notes also touch on natural theology with respect to knowledge and creation.
These point form notes were taken by James Dinwiddie at a lecture on Wednesday, June 11, 1783. The notes cover a range of topics in chemistry and physics including Boschovich's Theory, chemical mixtures, evaporation, and magnetic curves.
This series of lecture notes by James Dinwiddie in 1792 (?) references several subjects including mathematics, natural philosophy, Plato, Epicurius, the motion of the Earth, David Hume, and "W. Harrington". The file consists of 29 pages of lecture notes.
These notes written by James Dinwiddie on July 30, 1811 are from a lecture on hydrostatics given by Mr. D.F. Walker. The notes mention the hydrostatic paradox and Tantalus' cup as well as flotation experiments.
These notes written by James Dinwiddie focus on lightning and electricity. Dinwiddie mentions Benjamin Franklin, historical dates for important experiments, circuits, conductors and other phenomena including water spouts and earthquakes.
These notes written by James Dinwiddie in 1786 focus on mechanics, instruments, and experiments. He touches on forces and motion in the mechanics section and mentions thermometers, pumps, and pendula in the instruments section.
These notes written by James Dinwiddie focus on constrained motion. Dinwiddie begins the notes with definitions of constrained motion; he continues by discussing centrifugal motion. He later discusses motion with respect to time and space; in this section he includes a series of propositions.
