Galileo Galilei

How it all began...

It was in Florence that Galileo began his education at the Camaldolese monastery.

*Galileo was an accomplished musician and an excellent student. At first he studied to become a doctor as his father wished, and went to the University of Pisa to study medicine in 1581.

Galileo's timeline of Accomplishments
Galileo Galilei 1564-1642
*Born February 15th, 1564
*Born and raised in Pisa, Italy
*The first child of Vincenzio Galilei and oldest of 6 children.
*Belonged to nobility but was not rich
*Family Moved to Florence, Italy in 1574
Galileo soon became bored with his studies and eventually dropped out of the university
While at the university, Galileo became VERY interested in physics and mathematics.

In 1585, Galileo left the university and got a job as a teacher. He began to experiment with pendulums, levers, balls, and other objects. He tried to describe how they moved using mathematic equations. He even invented an advanced measuring device called the hydrostatic balance.
The hydrostatic balance was an accurate balance that could weigh objects both in water and in the air
Designs his famous velocity experiment, dropping objects off the leaning tower to disprove Aristotle's theory that heavier objects fall faster than lighter ones

Galileo learns of the recent invention, the telescope. He is able to improve the magnification of the telescope up to 32 powers.

Galileo makes many different observations about the solar system, using his new telescope.
He publishes the results in the 1610 book, "Sidereus Nuncius." ("The Starry Messenger")

During his student days at Pisa University Galileo formulated the isochronism (equal duration) of the pendulum while watching a lamp in the cathedral of Pisa sway. . He later would apply his theories of pendulums to clocks.
He invents the hydrostatic balance and publishes an essay about his findings

The Pump
Galileo had always been interested in mechanical devices. In 1593, he was presented with the problem involving the placement of oars in galleys. He treated the oar as a lever and correctly made the water the support for the lever. A year later, he patented a model for a pump. His pump was a device that raised water by using only one horse.

Galileo's Discoveries
In 1606 Galileo invents the thermoscope, a primitive thermometer.
As temperature changes, the individual floats rise or fall proportion to their respective density. He found that the density of a liquid changes in proportion to its temperature
Some of his most famous discoveries were....

Galileo Invents a "geometric and military compass," a sector ("a mathematical instrument consisting of two rulers connected at one end by a joint and marked with several scales"). It was used to solve practical mathematical problems
The moon's uneven surface, along with craters and
Discovered 4 moons revolving around Jupiter.
Galileo's Controversy
Discovered the different phases of Venus
Found our solar system revolved around the sun. (heliocentric)
Galileo's support of the heliocentric theory was seen by the Roman Catholic Church as contradicting many scriptural passages that stated our solar system was geocentric.
In 1632, Galileo published Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems where he wrote about his theory of a heliocentric solar system. Pope Urban IIV disagreed with Galileo's theory and ordered him to stand trial for heresy in 1633
Galileo is officially charged with heresy; he is forced to confess his errors, renounce the Copernican system, and accept the Church's judgment. He is sentenced to imprisonment.

In 1633, Galileo is allowed to return to the village of Arcetri, outside Florence, where he lives under house arrest. He writes his final book Two New Sciences. This book was praised by Sir, Issac Newton and Albert Einstien

Galileo Passes of natural causes in 1642, after having gone blind.
Galileo is one of the most influential scientists in human history, He will always be remembered for establishing many revolutionary mathematical and experimental foundations to modern physics and astronomy.
