  3. 3. Galileo went to university of Pisa
  4. 4. Studied medicine, but was forced to do so, Galileo felt his life was aimed at physics and philosophy
  5. 5. In his career he learnt about speed at which objects fall, mechanics as well as pendulums
  6. 6. Galileo had 3 children with Maria Gamba, his long term partner</li></li></ul><li>Social life<br />“Earth is NOT the centre point of creation”<br /><ul><li>In the 16th Century people were sacred and followed the teachings of the bible
  7. 7. Galileo’s had an outburst about his discovery of the Earth orbiting the Sun, but they didn't believe him.
  8. 8. People threatened torture and death
  9. 9. 1616 Galileo forbidden by the church to teach theories
  10. 10. In the 17th century, there were three very distinct classes
  11. 11. In previous generations the surname “Galilei” came from a wealthy noble man. Yet Galileo grew up in a poor area and family lived an average lifestyle. </li></li></ul><li>His BIG discovery<br /><ul><li>In 1581 Galileo started working in the university of Pisa and studied pendulums and medicine.
  12. 12. Galileo came up with the “Suspended lamp theory”
  13. 13. In 1602 Galileo's theory on Pendulum turned into a proof
  14. 14. Link between Acceleration and Gravity proved a constant</li></li></ul><li>Who invented the telescope?<br /><ul><li>It was unclear who invented the telescope as no-one granted a legal patent.
  15. 15. Galileo made a telescope of a magnification of 3X larger
  16. 16. Later that year he made a telescope of 20X magnification
  17. 17. Galileo used this latest telescope to make drawings of sunspots </li></li></ul><li>What else did Galileo prove/show?<br />Galileo found Jupiter’s four moons and observed their rotation.<br />Along with making contributions to the development of a universal clock, Galileo also created a military compass and a thermometer. <br />
  18. 18. Equations devised<br />Equations presented for the pendulum discovery was :<br />Galileo tried to prove that the acceleration of gravity is a constant no matter how dense the object, through a medium.<br />Galileo’s hypothesis:<br />“If free falling body has an acceleration that is a constant, then a perfectly round ball on a smooth inclined plate will also have a constant, though smaller acceleration. ”<br />Before<br />0.1s<br />0.1s<br />After<br />
