Descartes measured motion by the product of the magnitude of the body and the speed at which it travels. Search WorldCat Find items in libraries near you. The specific requirements or preferences of your reviewing publisher, classroom teacher, institution or organization should be applied.
Only the vertical component of that determination is subject to change, however; the horizontal component remains unaffected. Although the Greek mathematicians had established the correspondence between addition and the geometrical operation of laying line lengths end to end in the same straight line, they had been unable to conceive of multiplication in any way other than that of constructing a rectangle out of multiplier and multiplicand, with the result that the product differed in kind from the elements multiplied.
As a result of this principle, to which Descartes adhered in the face of both criticism and experience, only the first of the seven laws of impact of perfectly elastic bodies meeting in the same straight line is diopteica.

Here again Descartes had to alter his model to fit his theory of light, for that theory implies that light passes more dioptrca through the denser medium.

Please verify that you are not a robot. Since, when the ball strikes the surface, it imparts none of its motion to the surface which is immobileit will continue to move at the same speed and hence after a period of time equal to that required to traverse AB will be somewhere on a circle of radius AB about B. He served in both the Dutch and Bavarian military and settled in Holland in For the law of refraction, Descartes altered the nature of the surface met by the ball; he now imagined it to pass through the surface, but to lose some of its motion i.
In his Scholarum mathematicarum libri unus et triginta Paris,; 3rd. Remember me on this computer. Here again a totally anachronistic term is employed in the interest of brevity. Following those derivations, Descartes devotes the remainder of the Dioptrique to an optical analysis of the human eye, moving from the explanation of various distortions of vision to the lenses designed to correct them, or, in the case of the telescope, to increase the power of the normal eye.
But, since the surface is impenetrable, the ball cannot pass through it say to D but must bounce off it, with a resultant change in determination.
For problems of lower degree, Descartes maintains the classification of Pappus. Both the term and the concept it denotes are certainly anachronistic.
Imagine, then, says Diophrica, a tennis ball leaving the racket at point A and traveling uniformly along line AB to meet the surface CE at B. Don’t have an account? Also in he took up a problem posed by Florimond Debeaune: Your list has reached the maximum number of items.

Where, however, Pappus grouped all remaining curves into a class he termed linear, Descartes divides these into distinct classes of order. Your rating has been recorded. Please enter your name. For the model of the tennis ball, this means that, if the medium below the surface is denser than that above, the ball receives added speed at impact, as if it were struck again by the racket.
