Transcript of Galileo Galilei Valeria Paez & Frank Almeida

Galileo Galilei - Rerouted from Religon to Science Galileo
Galilei After four years, Galileo had announced to his father that he wanted to be a monk. This was not exactly what father had in mind, so Galileo was hastily withdrawn from the monastery. In 1581, at the age of 17, he entered the University of Pisa to study medicine, as his father wished. The Product Galileo Galilei - Law of the Pendulum At age twenty, Galileo noticed a lamp swinging overhead while he was in a cathedral.
Curious to find out how long it took the lamp to swing back and forth, he used his pulse to time large and small swings.
Discovered something that no one else had ever realized
the period of each swing was exactly the same.
The law of the pendulum, which would eventually be used to regulate clocks, made Galileo Galilei instantly famous. Short Biography Background dropped two balls of different masses from the Leaning Tower of Pisa to demonstrate that their time of descent was independent of their mass.
discovered that the objects fell at the same acceleration, proving his prediction true, while at the same time proving Aristotle's theory of gravity false. Leaning Tower Of Pisa To earn a living, Galileo Galilei started tutored students in math
experimented with floating objects, developing a balance
started campaigning for his life's ambition: a position on the mathematics faculty at a major university.
Although Galileo was clearly brilliant, he had offended many people in the field, who would choose other candidates for vacancies. Galileo Galilei - Mathematics Galileo Galilei was born in Pisa, Italy, on the 15th of February 1564
died on the 8th of January 1642.
ground breaking:
Among his inventions were telescopes, a compass and a thermometer.
enrolled to do a medical degree at the University of Pisa but never finished, instead choosing to study mathematics Why was Galileo sent to prison? Because of his work on the Heliocentric Theory, Galileo was put on trial by the Roman Catholic Church in 1633.
In his trial, he was said to have committed heresy against the Church, because the Holy Scripture said that the earth was motionless and was the center of the universe.
Galileo was required to deny the Heliocentric Theory.
He was said to have withdrawn his belief but he was still imprisoned and later on, placed on house arrest.
He remained on house arrest until his death. Telescope Galileo Galilei Telescope enrolled to do a medical degree at the University of Pisa but never finished, instead choosing to study mathematics

later improved on this to make telescopes with around 30x magnification

was able to observe the skies in ways previously not achieved

1610 he made observations of 4 objects surrounding Jupiter that behaved unlike stars, these turned out to be Jupiter’s for largest satellite moons: Io, Callisto, Europa and Ganymede. Helpful Resources & Links inventors.about.com/od/gstartinventors/a/Galileo_Galilei.htm
