Modern Galileo Experiment

In Galileo’s Dialogues Concerning Two New Sciences, he notes that a ball rolling down a uniform incline accelerates uniformly. Unfortunately, the most accurate tool to available to Galileo was a water clock, and this experiment has been designed to confirm his results using more-precise measurements from a motion detector and computer software. Similar to previous experiments, a test-cart was observed in motion down an incline track and using the Logger Pro software, precise graphical representations were created. Data Table for […]
