Pleasure or good, in a general sense, is that which the consciousness of a sensitive and intelligent being seeks, and in which, when found, it acquiesces.

They think that they can figure it out by mere logic and overlook the hard realities.

If, then, upon measuring the space ACD, it is found to be 120 cubical inches, it must be reduced to the volume which it would occupy under the mean pressure of 28 inches. This is done by the following statement: 120 : x, the unknown volume, :: 21.5 : 28 inversely; this gives x 120 x 21.5 / 28 ...
