The velocity in a circle, when the force is F, and radius = 1, is where he is the absolute force, and or that same function of the radius (raccording to which the central force attracts at different distances. Hence, at the same distance, and for the same law of force denoted by q, we have voc N cc (absol. force}). 543. Let a, b be the given semi-axes, and T the given periodic time. Then since the force tends to the focus, if , and o be the polar co-ordinates, it is easily shewn (see Newton, Prop. 1.) that the areas described by ç are proportional to the times of description; and because the area of the ellipse is wab, we have T:mab :: dt : pdo 2 2παο 3 Х að (1-e) 2πα T 3 which gives the velocity at any point of the ellipse. 2are P F = c2 dp 545.
