# Newton's principia for the common reader

Book 2 also discusses (in Section 5 ) hydrostatics and the properties of compressible fluids.

He decided to pay homage to Newton, and try to fathom his genius, by translating "for the common reader" the parts of Newton's Principia that led to the formulation of the gravitational law.

His method was to construct first his own proof for a proposition and then to compare it with Newton's version.

Its solution is one of the crowning achievements of Western thought.A b In Latin Isaac Newton's Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica: the Third edition (1726) with variant readings, assembled and.Brasch Collection of Newton and Newtoniana in Stanford University also has a first edition of the Principia.(in French) Alexis Clairaut, "Du systeme du monde, dans les principes de la gravitation universelle in "Histoires ( Memoires) de l'Academie Royale des Sciences" for 1745 (published 1749.329 (according to a note.329, Clairaut's paper was read at a session of November.Wilkins of the School of Mathematics at Trinity College, Dublin has transcribed a few sections into TeX and metapost and made the source, as well as a formatted.pdf available at Extracts from the Works of Isaac Newton (Chapter 2 written by Simon Shaffner).6, the French mathematical physicist, alexis Clairaut assessed it in 1747: "The famous book.Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1980.Extract of page 30 See online Principia (1729 translation) vol.2, Books 2 3, starting at page 387 of volume 2 (1729).A Treatise of the System of the World.
