If for duple we had ſubſtituted triple, quadruple, quintuple, &c. the action would have come out noncuple, ſedecuple, 25ple; and generally it appears, that equable, equitemporaneous, moving actions, are to equal moveable, as the ſquares of the velocities; or, which is the ſame thing, that in the ſame or an equal body, the forces are in a duplicate ratio of the velocities.
In the second way, it is divisible into unequal rational ratios, any of which would be a part or parts. Not every one is divisible in this way, but some surely are, as…a sedecuple ratio into an octuple and double where the double is one-fourth…and the octuple is three-fourths.‡
Gozzini and Iannuzzi (1960) proposed the use of sixteen microwave spectrometer systems connected in parallel and fed by the same source[. …] It is interesting to note that this sedecuple arrangement did not burgeon forth from an opulent American laboratory.
