You mentioned some confusion at WSJ re the use of terms 'distance' and 'velocity'. Is this the sentence you were referring to?: "He discovered thereby that speed was related to the square of falling-time (something that dropping a feather and an anvil from a tower could never prove)".


That saves me. Thanks for being so sseinble!
