On which the comment may be that one who had studied celestial mechanics as much as the reviewer has studied the general course of transformations, might similarly have remarked that the formula — " bodies attract one another directly as their masses...

...matter within the bodies; and hence, in general, the force urging the bodies towards one another will be **directly as their masses, and inversely as the squares of their distances.** Thus, by mechanical action, the. Newtonian law of gravitation is explained in all its parts. The principal... | |

...truth hitherto discovered by the industry and sagacity of man ; viz. " That all the particles of matter **attract one another, directly as their masses, and inversely as the squares of their distances."** Having thus experimentally examined the nature of gravitation as far, at least, as that can be effected... | |
