Webster's 1913 Dictionary
\Dy*nam"ic\, Dynamical \Dy*nam"ic*al\, a. [Gr. ?
powerful, fr. ? power, fr. ? to be able; cf. L. durus hard,
E. dure: cf. F. dynamique.]
1. Of or pertaining to dynamics; belonging to energy or
   power; characterized by energy or production of force.

         Science, as well as history, has its past to show,
         -- a past indeed, much larger; but its immensity is
         dynamic, not divine.                  --J.

         The vowel is produced by phonetic, not by dynamic,
         causes.                               --J. Peile.

2. Relating to physical forces, effects, or laws; as,
   dynamical geology.

         As natural science has become more dynamic, so has
         history.                              --Prof. Shedd.
