Some properties of the Agnesi function are associated with gravitational criteria, such as the x-squared term appearing in the denominator, and suggestive of an inverse square relationship, which in Newtonian gravity derives from Newton's postulate of a central force, which he interpreted from Kepler's First Law of Planetary Action-namely that the orbits of the planet must be elliptical from consideration of years of visual data of Tycho Brahe.
Paralelamente a esta linea se desarrollan elementos geometricos que configuran las curvas en un estadio inicial estatico, contemporaneo del pensamiento aristotelico pero que se despegaria hacia el reconocimiento de las variaciones y por ende de covariaciones con la emergencia de la geometria analitica, mencionaremos aqui a Stiffer, Descartes, Napier, Agnesi y Euler como baluartes del desarrollo del lenguaje matematico.
