  • Question 1 :
  • Because a ton weight of iron let fall, for instance, from a mile high, would, according to their theory, have to be carried on by the Earth's attraction at the extravagant rate of 1,133 miles a minute, besides partaking of the axical turning of the Earth, to _________ the spot it was immediately over; which is impossible to be conceived that the Earth has such discriminating attraction: nay, independently of axical motion, -- as the globe is stated to fly faster than a ton weight could possibly fall, it is evident, that it would never drop upon the spot it was let fall over, but would according to the quicker rate of the Earth's flying than of the body's fallling, be left behind.
