Description

A diagram showing a curve bisected by a straight line. It appears on the reverse of a page of notes recording an experiment on the weight of gold and silver, taken by Robert Hooke (and now part of the 'Hooke folio', MS/847). However the diagram appears not to be connected with the experiment described there.
