...subject of the fall of heavy bodies, Huyghens demonstrated that the velocity of a body descending down **any curve, is the same at every instant, in the direction of the tangent, as it would have acquired by** freely falling from a height equal to the correspondent vertical abscissa; and by applying this principle... | |
