Since, when the ball strikes the surface, it imparts none of its motion to the surface which is immobileit will continue to move at the same speed and hence after a period of time equal to that required descattes traverse AB will be somewhere on a circle of radius AB about B.

Moreover, although Descartes treated speed as a scalar quantity, determination was operationally at least always a vector, which could be resolved into components. Here again Descartes had to alter his model to fit his theory of light, for that theory implies that light passes more easily through the denser medium. One important by-product of this structural analysis of equations is a new and more refined concept of number.

It concerns the impact of two equal bodies approaching each other at equal speeds and is intuitively obvious.

During this decade Descartes sought to realize two programmatic goals. As a result of this principle, to which Descartes adhered in the face of both criticism and experience, only the first of the seven laws of impact of perfectly elastic bodies meeting in the same straight line is correct.
