Book Description

This book considers the foundation of the science of ballistics in the seventeenth century as a mathematical interpretation based on exact experimental investigation. Dr Hall examines the science of ballistics with reference to its underlying mathematical principles, placing it in the context of the social and economic background of the seventeenth century, particularly in England.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
and this book is one of my favourits written by him. He studied the sources well and you can get an enormous insight on how Newton's Principia relates to ballistics. The book gets only 4 out of 5 stars because it is almost entirely centered on english developments without stating it in the title.
