A spherical body, uniformly dense, it is obvious, will, if made to revolve freely about any axis passing through its enter, continue to revolve about the same axis; and, by what I have shewn in the Philosophical Transactions for the year 1777, it appears, that a cylinder of uniform density, whose length is to radius as √3 to 1, will do the same.
