...between these two quantities would establish the law of the decrease of the earth's power of attraction **to be in the inverse ratio of the square of the distance.** It will be seen that to compute how far a body would fall in one second, when removed to the moon's... | |

...diminution of the length of the pendulum, or of the attraction, ought then to be the ^ith part, if it is **to be in the inverse ratio of the square of the distance** ; but it was by no means so great — in fact, only the ^^th part. 42. This diminution in attraction,... | |
