10] the time in which the space CD is traversed by a body which starts from rest at C and is uniformly accelerated; let the final and c highest value of the speed gained during the interval AB be represented by the line EB drawn at right angles to A B ; draw the line AE, then all lines drawn from equidistant points on AB and parallel to BE will represent the increasing values o f the speed, beginning with the instant A. Let the point F bisect the line EB; draw FG parallel to BA, and G A parallel to FB, thus forming a parallelo gram AGFB which will be equal in area to the triangle AEB, since the side GF bisects the side AE at the point I ; for if the parallel lines in the triangle AEB are extended to GI, then the sum o f all the parallels contained in the quadrilateral Illustr i o — The *s e
