E479 -- Nova methodus motum corporum rigidorum degerminandi

(A new method for generating the motion of a rigid body)

(based on C. Truesdell's An idiot's fugitive essays on science: methods, criticisms, training, circumstances)
In contrast to Euler's treatment in E177, in this paper, he considers mechanics for three-dimensional regions in general.

According to the records, it was presented to the St. Petersburg Academy on October 16, 1775.
