Expressed aim and topics covered[ edit ] Sir Isaac Newton — author of the Principia In the preface of the Principia, Newton wrote: For all the difficulty of philosophy seems to consist in this—from the phenomenas of motions to investigate the forces of Nature, and then from these forces to demonstrate the other phenomena [ It attempts to cover hypothetical or possible motions both of celestial bodies and of terrestrial projectiles.
It explores difficult problems of motions perturbed by multiple attractive forces. Its third and final book deals with the interpretation of observations about the movements of planets and their satellites.
The Principia begin with "Definitions"  and "Axioms or Laws of Motion",  and continues in three books: Book 1, De motu corporum[ edit ] Book 1, subtitled De motu corporum On the motion of bodies concerns motion in the absence of any resisting medium.
It opens with a mathematical exposition of "the method of first and last ratios",  a geometrical form of infinitesimal calculus. If an instantaneous centripetal force red arrow is considered on the planet during its orbit, the area of the triangles defined by the path of the planet will be the same.
This is true for any fixed time interval. When the interval tends to zero, the force can be considered continuous. Click image for a detailed description.
Propositions 43—45  are demonstration that in an eccentric orbit under centripetal force where the apse may move, a steady non-moving orientation of the line of apses is an indicator of an inverse-square law of force.
Book 1 contains some proofs with little connection to real-world dynamics. But there are also sections with far-reaching application to the solar system and universe: Propositions 57—69  deal with the "motion of bodies drawn to one another by centripetal forces".
This section is of primary interest for its application to the solar system, and includes Proposition 66  along with its 22 corollaries: Propositions 70—84  deal with the attractive forces of spherical bodies.
This fundamental result, called the Shell theoremenables the inverse square law of gravitation to be applied to the real solar system to a very close degree of approximation.
Book 2[ edit ] Part of the contents originally planned for the first book was divided out into a second book, which largely concerns motion through resisting mediums. Just as Newton examined consequences of different conceivable laws of attraction in Book 1, here he examines different conceivable laws of resistance; thus Section 1 discusses resistance in direct proportion to velocity, and Section 2 goes on to examine the implications of resistance in proportion to the square of velocity.
Book 2 also discusses in Section 5 hydrostatics and the properties of compressible fluids. Newton compares the resistance offered by a medium against motions of globes with different properties material, weight, size. In Section 8, he derives rules to determine the speed of waves in fluids and relates them to the density and condensation Proposition 48;  this would become very important in acoustics.
He assumes that these rules apply equally to light and sound and estimates that the speed of sound is around feet per second and can increase depending on the amount of water in air.
According to this Cartesian theory of vortices, planetary motions were produced by the whirling of fluid vortices that filled interplanetary space and carried the planets along with them. Book 3, De mundi systemate[ edit ] Book 3, subtitled De mundi systemate On the system of the worldis an exposition of many consequences of universal gravitation, especially its consequences for astronomy.
It builds upon the propositions of the previous books, and applies them with further specificity than in Book 1 to the motions observed in the solar system. Here introduced by Proposition 22,  and continuing in Propositions 25—35  are developed several of the features and irregularities of the orbital motion of the Moon, especially the variation.
Newton lists the astronomical observations on which he relies,  and establishes in a stepwise manner that the inverse square law of mutual gravitation applies to solar system bodies, starting with the satellites of Jupiter  and going on by stages to show that the law is of universal application.
In Book 3 Newton also made clear his heliocentric view of the solar system, modified in a somewhat modern way, since already in the mids he recognised the "deviation of the Sun" from the centre of gravity of the solar system.
Saturn,  and pointed out that these put the centre of the Sun usually a little way off the common center of gravity, but only a little, the distance at most "would scarcely amount to one diameter of the Sun". Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources.

Newton first set out the definition of mass The quantity of matter is that which arises conjointly from its density and magnitude.
A body twice as dense in double the space is quadruple in quantity. This quantity I designate by the name of body or of mass.Of course, in thinking about a plenum of matter in motion, it may be natural to begin with ideas of bodies and their surfaces, and in fact there are things Leibniz says that encourage us to think this way.
