Page 292 - Since forces are measured by the changes of motion they produce, and their directions assigned by the directions in which these changes are produced ; and since the changes of motion of one and the same body are in the directions of, and proportional to, the changes of velocity — a single force, measured by the resultant change of velocity, and in its direction, will be the equivalent of any number of simultaneously acting forces.
