Example text

The remainder of the vessel is filled with water AI. Then the wood will not rise up, because a siphon or a mobile balance cannot be created with adjacent water. Proposition XXI 27 Proposition XX Earthy bodies when removed from their natural places exert no gravity while descending. After having solved this problem, I will show that it is untrue that earthy bodies while immobile in their proper places do not weigh. When removed from their natural places they exert no gravity on the other parts of the body.

Hindrance of insensible perspiration provokes lassitude and pain with a feeling of suffocation. This we experience when we are squeezed in too tight a coat. But it must be noticed that the compression by a coat is not overall so that blood can be expelled towards the face and to the parts naked and uncovered by the coat. This would not occur if even the smallest area of the skin was not free of compression. So when immersing a hand into quicksilver, we experience perceptible pain from compression, not only because the aerial and spirituous parts are squeezed and condensed, but above all because the compression occurs locally rather than everywhere.

The centre of gravity thus always remains at the centre N of the ring whether the water which this contains is immobile or whether it turns around. As a result of the contiguity of the parts of water, one part of it F cannot move unless all the water EKG turns at an equal velocity. Therefore, not one part alone but all the water acquires impulse and impetus. Similarly, a wooden wheel all at the same time sustains a blow and is balanced about its centre of gravity. In the same way the water contained in the vessel AC in the previous figure, although fluid, has however a point M about which its parts have equal moments.
