However, the earth is not completely rigid and the interplay of forces will modify its shape in subtle ways. Newton predicted a flattening at the poles, yet others disagreed. Newton's Principia paints a picture of the earth as a spinning, gravitating ball. Volume 2 is largely devoted to the work of Laplace, tracing developments up to 1825.
