This reappears in Definition 5 of the Principia. Definition 3 of the Principia is to similar effect. Newton treats them in effect as we now treat vectors. This point reappears in Corollaries 1 and 2 to the third law of motion, Law 3 in the Principia.
The context indicates that Newton was dealing here with infinitesimals or their limiting ratios. This reappears in Book 1, Lemma 10 in the Principia.
Newton uses for this derivation — as he does in later proofs in this De Motu, as well as in many parts of the later Principia — a limit argument of infinitesimal calculus in geometric form,  in which the area swept out by the radius vector is divided into triangle-sectors. They are of small and decreasing size considered to tend towards zero individually, while their number increases without limit.
This theorem appears again, with expanded explanation, as Proposition 1, Theorem 1, of the Principia. Theorem 2[ edit ] Theorem 2 considers a body moving uniformly in a circular orbit, and shows that for any given time-segment, the centripetal force directed towards the center of the circle, treated here as a center of attraction is proportional to the square of the arc-length traversed, and inversely proportional to the radius.
This subject reappears as Proposition 4, Theorem 4 in the Principia, and the corollaries here reappear also. Corollary 3 shows that if P2 is proportional to R, then the centripetal force would be independent of R. A scholium then points out that the Corollary 5 relation square of orbital period proportional to cube of orbital size is observed to apply to the planets in their orbits around the Sun, and to the Galilean satellites orbiting Jupiter. Theorem 3[ edit ] Theorem 3 now evaluates the centripetal force in a non-circular orbit, using another geometrical limit argument, involving ratios of vanishingly small line-segments.
The demonstration comes down to evaluating the curvature of the orbit as if it were made of infinitesimal arcs, and the centripetal force at any point is evaluated from the speed and the curvature of the local infinitesimal arc. This subject reappears in the Principia as Proposition 6 of Book 1.
A corollary then points out how it is possible in this way to determine the centripetal force for any given shape of orbit and center. Problem 1 then explores the case of a circular orbit, assuming the center of attraction is on the circumference of the circle. A scholium points out that if the orbiting body were to reach such a center, it would then depart along the tangent. Proposition 7 in the Principia.
Problem 2 explores the case of an ellipse, where the center of attraction is at its center, and finds that the centripetal force to produce motion in that configuration would be directly proportional to the radius vector. This material becomes Proposition 10, Problem 5 in the Principia. Problem 3 again explores the ellipse, but now treats the further case where the center of attraction is at one of its foci. A scholium then points out that this Problem 3 proves that the planetary orbits are ellipses with the Sun at one focus.
A controversy over the cogency of the conclusion is described below. The subject of Problem 3 becomes Proposition 11, Problem 6, in the Principia. Theorem 4[ edit ] Theorem 4 shows that with a centripetal force inversely proportional to the square of the radius vector, the time of revolution of a body in an elliptical orbit with a given major axis is the same as it would be for the body in a circular orbit with the same diameter as that major axis.
Proposition 15 in the Principia. A scholium points out how this enables determining the planetary ellipses and the locations of their foci by indirect measurements. Problem 4 then explores, for the case of an inverse-square law of centripetal force, how to determine the orbital ellipse for a given starting position, speed, and direction of the orbiting body.
Newton points out here, that if the speed is high enough, the orbit is no longer an ellipse, but is instead a parabola or hyperbola. He also identifies a geometrical criterion for distinguishing between the elliptical case and the others, based on the calculated size of the latus rectum , as a proportion to the distance the orbiting body at closest approach to the center. Proposition 17 in the Principia.
A scholium then remarks that a bonus of this demonstration is that it allows definition of the orbits of comets, and enables an estimation of their periods and returns where the orbits are elliptical. Some practical difficulties of implementing this are also discussed. Finally in the series of propositions based on zero resistance from any medium, Problem 5 discusses the case of a degenerate elliptical orbit, amounting to a straight-line fall towards or ejection from the attracting center.
Proposition 32 in the Principia. A scholium points out how problems 4 and 5 would apply to projectiles in the atmosphere and to the fall of heavy bodies, if the atmospheric resistance could be assumed nil.
Both problems are addressed geometrically using hyperbolic constructions. Then a final scholium points out how problems 6 and 7 apply to the horizontal and vertical components of the motion of projectiles in the atmosphere in this case neglecting earth curvature. The proof of the converse here depends on its being apparent that there is a uniqueness relation, i.
Newton added a mention of this kind into the second edition of the Principia, as a Corollary to Propositions 11—13, in response to criticism of this sort made during his lifetime. According to one of these reminiscences, Halley asked Newton, "
