Isaac Newton and Galileo Galilei

Galileo Galilei

Isaac Newton



-Born in 1643 in Woolsthorpe England. - English physicist and mathematician, from Cambridge University. -Fundamental contributions to analytic geometry, algebra, and calculus. -Developed the principles on modern physics. -Curiosity for gravity started in 1666 in Woolsthorpe.-In 1687, he wrote his book Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica.-Responsible for the creation of infinitesimal calculus. -Created a theory on regards of light and color. -In 1689, he was elected to represent Cambridge in Parliament. -Discovered the binomial theorem and is known for his three laws of motion. -Died in 1727.

-Born in Pisa, Italy, on February 15, 1564. -Eeducated in a Jesuit monastery and studied medicine at the University of Pisa. -Gained fame when he discovered the Law of the Pendulum. -Proved the Law of Constant Acceleration using the Tower of Pisa. -He built his own telescope, 32 times as powerful as the previous best telescope. -Proved that the Earth was not the center of the universe. -The Church labeled him as a heretic and sentenced him to house arrest.-Died on January 8, 1642, in Arcetri, Italy. -Known as the Father of Western Science (physics and astronomy) and is responsible for most of what we know about the universe today.

Studies in Motion

An object at rest stays at rest, unless an outside force acts upon it. An object at motion stays at motion with the same speed and the same direction, unless an outside force acts upon it.

Acceleration is produced when a force acts on a mass. The greater the mass the more force is needed.

For every action there is an equal or opposite reaction.

Galileo Galilei's Studies-Contribution to mechanics--Disapproved Aristotelian contention.-Wrote the manuscript “Du Moto” (On motion). It was never published and was one of his early studies in motion and falling of objects.-Published “Little Balance” → hydrostatic principles of weighing small quantities. -In 1604 Galileo improved his theories in motion and falling objects → developed the universal law of acceleration.-Galileo formulated the law of the parabolic fall.-Able to determine that the path of a projectile is parabolic.
