    • 1645, Albert Kyper, Institutiones physicae, p. 482:
      An elementa in suis locis gravitent vel levitent? ℞. 1. Si gravitatio & levitatio sumatur adaequate pro actu gravitatis & levitatis, omnino cum & conservatio in loco actus sit, elementis naturaliter tribui debet.
      Do elements fall or rise in position? Response 1. If gravitation and levitation are put equally for the act of heaviness and lightness, in general when preservation is moreover in the place of the act, preservation ought naturally to be granted to the elements.
    • 1795, Simon L'Hulier, Principiorum calculi differentialis et integralis expositio elementaris, p. 335:
      Gravitatio, quam corpus sphaericum exercet, sequitur rationem inversam duplicatam distantiae ab centro corporis hujus, quoad corpus gravitans extra illud situm est.
      Gravitation, which a spherical body wields, follows a double inverse rule of the distance from the center of this body, as long as the gravitating body is positioned outside of it.
