Determination of orbits in which bodies will revolve, being acted upon by any sort of centripetal force --
Motion of bodies in movable orbits; and the motion of the apsides --
Motion of bodies in given surfaces; and the oscillating pendulous motion of bodies --
Motions of bodies tending to each other with centripetal forces --
Attractive forces of spherical bodies --
Attractive forces of bodies which are not spherical --
Motion of very small bodies when agitated by centripetal forces tending to the several parts of any very great body --
Book II: Motion of bodies (In resisting mediums): Motion of bodies that are resisted in the ratio of the velocity --
Motion of bodies that are resisted as the square of their velocities --
Motion of bodies that are resisted partly in the ratio of the velocities, and partly as the square of the same ratio --
Circular motion of bodies in resisting mediums --
Density and compression of fluids; hydrostatics --
