|PROPOSTION IV PROBLEM II (In BOOK II):|
|Supposing the force of gravity in any homogeneous medium to be uniform, and to tend perpendicularly to the plane of the horizon: to define the motion of a projectile therein, which suffers resistance propotional to its velocity.|
|LAWS COROLLARY II (In BOOK I):|
|And hence is explained the composition of any one direct force AD, out of any two oblique forces AC and CD; and, on the contrary, the resolution of any one direct force AD into two oblique forces AC and CD: which composition and resolution are abundantly confirmed from mechanics.|
|PROPOSITION II (In BOOK II):|
|If a body is resisted in the ratio of its velocity, and moves, by its inertia only, through an homogeneous medium, and the times be taken equal, the velocities in the beginning of each of the times are in a geometrical progession, and the spaces desribed in each of the times are as the velocities.|
|PROPOSITION III (In BOOK II):|
To define the motion of a body which, in an homogeneous medium, ascends or descends in a right line, and is resisted in the ratio of its velocity, and acted upon by an uniform force of gravity.
