附註 Translation of: De motionibus naturalibus a gravitate pendentibus, originally published in Italian in 1670 and translated into Latin in 1686, a precursor to Borelli's major work, De motu animalium (On the movement of animals), 1685. (Page [4] of cover and Wikipedia)
Includes bibliographical references (pages 279-288)
1. There are movements of sublunary bodies in a fluid environment, which nobody dealt with so far -- 2. On the moments of consistent and fluid heavy bodies floating in fluids -- 3. Every fluid body among those which rest on the surface of the earth is heavy and exerts the force of its gravity, even when present and quiescent in its due place, in all the fluid of its kind -- 4. There is no positive lightness in the nature of things -- 5. On the structure, the gravity, the equlibrium and the elastic force of air -- 6. There is neither attraction nor attractive force in nature -- 7. On the nature and cause of fluidity -- 8. Investigation of the cause of the spontaneous elevation of small particles of water in the air above the surface of the water -- 9. On the mutual binding of floating corpuscles and on their shunning -- 10. On the natural velocity of heavy bodies in equal times -- 11. Why movements of heavy bodies are made unequal by full fluid environments -- 12. On the necessity of vacuum -- 13. Explanation of the fact that watery bodies when they freeze increase in volume with an enormous force
