5.1.2. Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation & Coulomb's Law

5.1.2.1. Both laws share the same basics, both law follow the inverse square relationship, both describe the interactions between two objects. Although Newton's Law describes interactions caused by gravitational fields, while Coulomb's Law describes interactions caused by electric fields. However, gravity only involves attraction, whereas charges can have both repulsion and attraction interactions (+ve & -ve charges).

5.2.1. Mathematics

5.2.2. De Moivre developed his theorem based on Euler's discovery of exponential form based on polar form on complex numbers.

5.2.2.1. Understanding and justification in Maths is very similar. Understanding requires the ability to solve different problems using the theory, whereas justification means to lay out the mathematical thought process step by step. Both are broadly similar.

5.2.2.2. Justification isn't required by De Moivre because it was already justifies by Euler. Therefore, he only needs to justify his own development based on Euler's theory.
