Heavenly bodies are not subject to the laws applicable to terrestrial ones-—every
star is a body as it were divine, ... Let a moving body be simultaneously actuated
by two motions that are such that the distances travelled in the same time are in ...
The more heavy the medium is at traversal, the slower is the descent of a heavy
body. The descent is slower in a fluid which is more dense. Greater width
diminishes the gravity. A heavy thing will move more freely as the duration of its
This text is mentioned by Thomas Bradwardine, proctor of the University of Oxford
, in his Tractatus Proportionum (1328). Bradwardine denies this statement and
attributes the velocity of its most rapidly moving point to a body in uniform rotation
But the first is determined solely by the motor, and the second only by the shape
of the body. “ On decomposed impeto. Decomposed B impeto is associated with
a moving body which has three kinds of impeto. Two of 0 these arise from the ...
It seems that the aflirmative reply is the correct one, for this is the law which
seems to be followed by uniformly varying motion with respect to a subject
moving body. Nonetheless we reply that the velocity of uniformly varying motion
