We have seen how Galileo, the physicist, described the free fall of bodies and suggested the possibility of the existence of inertia. Clearly, through his experiments, Galileo was one of the founders of modern mechanics. However, the situation was far from simple. Galileo did indeed succeed in describing motion in a way which approached a mathematical description of the kinetic reality. Nonetheless, Galileo, in his effort to arrive at a complete explanation, to actually build a dynamic model of… Expand
