Notes on weights, impetus and movement ff.41v-42

Beneath the main diagram on the left-hand page Leonardo notes ‘The centre of gravity of a body suspended on one cord always lies beneath the centre line of that cord’.

The note at the top of the right-hand page reads 'The motion of a body is linear whatever the directions of the forces applied'.

This version of Turning the Pages does not require the Shockwave plug-in. It foregoes the interactive animation that lets you 'virtually' turn pages and brings you the same high-quality images of our greatest books in standard web pages.

You can listen to the audio files on these pages with Windows Media Player
