(puta M) centro C per M deſcribatur circulus MQH; item centro
N per M deſcribatur circulus MRH, qui priorem MQH ſecet

IV. Nocetur ſi fuerit HN P reflexus ipſius MN P fore N Π =
N P.

V. Diſpiciamus jam primò quid ex hujuſmodi reflectione contingat
projicienti radios. quorſum, per circuli reflectentis centrum C
protendatur indefinitè recta ABC (hoc autem in ſequentibus evitandæ
repetitioni perpetuò factum intelligatur; quin ejuſmodi recta nomi-
netur axis; hîc _Speculi,_ poſteà _Diapbani_) biſecetur autem Semidiame-
ter CB in Z; & per Z tranſeat recta ZY ad CB perpendicularis,
indeſinitéque protenſa ; tum quilibet incidat axi parallelus radius
MN P ad N; (convexo circuli nil refert, an cavo; nam in utroque
caſu reflexus quoad directionem idem erit; vel ejus qui in hoc, iſte qui
in illo productus erit) connexáque CN ipſam ZY interſecet in V; ſiátque CK = CV; ducatúrque NK; erit NK ipſius MN reflex-
us (vel reflexi productus) Nam ducatur NQ ad CB perpendicu-
laris, & connectatur CP. éſtque CZ . CK : : (CZ. CV : : )
CQ. CN . quapropter antecedentes duplicando CN . CK : :
PN. CN. item angulus KCN æquatur alterno CNP. ergò tri-
angula CKN, NCP ſimilia ſunt; adeoque KN = KC. igitur è
ſuprà generatim oſtenſis patet fore KN, ipſius MN reflexum.

VI. Hinc particularis emergit methodus hujuſmodi quotcunque
reflexos quàm expeditiſſime deſignandi; quin & ipſorum erga ſe ra-
tiones ac reſpectus; nec non pleraque primaria _Symptomata_ facilè
diluceſcunt; corollariis nempe ſubjectis comprehenſa.
