In his own time, galileo was preceded by many other scholars in the continued application of mathematics to physics, including niccolo tartaglia and giambattista benedetti but it was kepler who was the major writer in this area before galileo, along with (again) simon stevin and ismael boulliau. The explanation for the pendulum's motion is related to galileo's principle of inertia and the law of fall, which serve as the basis of the new physics the motion of the pendulum is one of falling, but it does not fall at a constant acceleration because the angle of its descent changes along the length of each movement.
Galileo suggested that this was due to their immense distance from earth this then eased the problem posed by the failure of astronomers to detect stellar parallax that was a consequence of copernicus' model.

Galileo's work on projectile motion in aristotle's theory of motion, projectiles were pushed along by an external force which was transmitted through the air his medieval successors internalized this force in the projectile itself and called it impetus. Physics 162 lecture 3b 1 galileo and the physics of motion studies of motion important : planetary orbits, cannonball accuracy, basic physics. The italian scientist galileo galilei (1564-1642) is renowned for his epoch-making contributions to astronomy, physics, and scientific philosophy galileo was born in pisa on feb 15, 1564, the first child of vincenzio galilei, a merchant and musician and an abrasive champion of advanced musical theories of the day. Newtonian physics, also called newtonian or classical mechanics, is the description of mechanical events—those that involve forces acting on matter—using the laws of motion and gravitation formulated in the late seventeenth century by english physicist sir isaac newton (1642-1727) several. Galileo had many other experiments and theories he explored that were beneficial to physics galileo is a major person in the development of physics, which is most likely why he is named the father of modern science.

Galileo really contributed to the fields of physics, astronomy, cosmology, mathematics and philosophy he found out that earth was not the center of the solar system he says jupiter has four moons and venus has a face that looks like a moon. In galileo's attack on the aristotelian cosmology, few details were actually new however, his approach and his findings together provided the first coherent presentation of the science of motion galileo realized that, out of all the observable motions in nature, free-fall motion is the key to the understanding of all motions of all bodies. The teacher contrasts it with the previously introduced kepler's and galileo's inertia4 newton discussed the conceptual points of central importance for introductory physics course: time-space description of movement, apparent and true physical. Part ii: galileo's analysis of projectile motion galileo brought his lifetime of insight as an experimenter -- and mathematician -- to a conclusion in his greatest work, published in 1638, the dialogues of the two new sciences.
Most of galileo's investigations in physics had to do with the motion of bodies these investigations lead him to the modern description of motion in terms of position and time. Most of his observations of falling bodies were really of bodies rolling down ramps galileo called his method new and wrote a book called his description. Previous index next galileo's acceleration experiment michael fowler, uva physics department summarizing aristotle's view aristotle held that there are two kinds of motion for inanimate matter, natural and unnatural. Galileo continued to write about physics, and in 1632 he put forward his concept of basic relativity in physics, which may be stated as follows: the laws of mechanics will be the same for all observers moving at the same speed and direction with respect to one another.
