...motion of these parts would not be regulated by Kepler's third law of physical astronomy, viz.: that the periodic times are proportional to the cubes of the mean distances. The separation of this revolving nebula into distinct parts must have been the result of the attraction...

...South Pole of the earth. From the relation of the motions of different planets expressed in Kepler's third law (that the squares of the periodic times are proportional to the cubes of the distances), it follows that the periodic times increase in a greater proportion than the distances...

...their centres from that of the sun. Lastly, from the law that the squares of the times of revolution are proportional to the cubes of the mean distances from the sun, he concludes, that the force is proportional to the mass. The same laws of motion are found to prevail...

...year, from 91 to 94 million of miles. But if we take the mean distances, Kepler found by observation that the squares of the periodic times are proportional to the cubes of the mean distances. Therefore so far we have a corroboration of the 2nd law. 137. The 2nd law comes into this problem mainly...
