Du Châtelet's Foundations: minor revisions to chapters 15 and 18

New versions of chapters 15 and 18 of Du Châtelet's Foundations of Physics were uploaded today, containing minor revisions.

Later printings of the 1740 edition contain errata and, at the end of chapter 15, Du Châtelet updated two paragraphs in light of new results concerning the measurement of the shape of the Earth. We have corrected the translation of these updates having viewed the Duke copy of the Foundations.
