Page - First then I will set out the very first theorem which became known to me by means of mechanics, namely that Any segment of a section of a right-angled cone (ie a parabola) is four-thirds of the triangle which has the same base and equal height, and after this I will give each of the other theorems investigated by the same method. Then, at the end of the book, I will give the.
