To complete the experiment, the graduated tube containing the expelled air is brought to a constant and determinate temperature and pressure, and this volume is the volume which the given weight of the substance would occupy if it were a gas under the same temperature and pressure.
It follows that the single resultant to which the system in general reduces is uniquely determinate, i.e.
9 is balanced by three determinate tensions (or thrusts) in the three links, provided the directions of the latter are not concurrent.
Bare or indeterminate being, for instance, the first of the determinations of Hegel's logic, as the being of that which is not anything determinate, of Kant's thing-in-itself, for example, positively understood, implicated at once the notion of not-being, which negates it, and is one with it, yet with a difference, so that we have the transition to determinate being, the transition being baptized as becoming.
Yet the problem of the individual is really contained in this prior question; for determinate matter already involves particularity or this-ness.
