## Galileo Galilei: Physicist

Subject: Physics | Topics:

Galileo Galilei, Physicist was born on February 15, 1564, in Pisa, Italy. He was also an Italian astronomer, engineer, philosopher, and mathematician who played a major role in the scientific revolution of the seventeenth century. He has been called the “father of observational astronomy”, the “father of modern physics”, and the “father of science”. His early studies, at the Univ. of Pisa, were in medicine, but he was soon drawn to mathematics and physics. Galileo made original contributions to the science of motion through an innovative combination of experiment and mathematics. More typical of science at the time were the qualitative studies of William Gilbert, on magnetism and electricity. He was one of the first modern thinkers to clearly state that the laws of nature are mathematical. In 1612, he published his Discourse on Bodies in Water, refuting the Aristotelian explanation of why objects float in water, saying that it wasn’t because of their flat shape, but instead the weight of the object in relation to the water it displaced.

### Assignment on fundamental sciences

Fundamental sciences is the study of material things was treated as a single aspect of human thought and called natural philosophy. But as knowledge increased it was found necessary to divide the study of nature into two main branches. They are  two main fundamental sciences are- A. Physical sci.....

### Assignment on Refraction of Light

Reflection of Light The bouncing off of light or any wave at the face or boundary between two medium is called refraction.The figure above illustrates the regular reflection of a light ray. MM` represents the surface of a plane mirror. AO is the incident ray i.e. the direction in which light fall.....

### Experiment Study of Wein Bridge Oscillator

Prime objective of this case study is to experiment on Wein Bridge Oscillator. The oscillator is a circuit where a balanced bridge is used because feedback network is Wien Bridge oscillator. The aim of this experiment is to check the operation of the Wien Bridge. To explain this experiment here .....

### What is Wave

Wave is a form of disturbance which travels onward due to repeated periodic motion of the medium particles. Energy is transferred during wave motion. Types of wave Mechanical wave: This type of wave motion requires material medium to propagate. For example ripples on water surface, vibration of a.....

### Experiment Study of Class-C Tuned Power Amplifier

Primary objective of this case study is to experiment on Class-C Tuned Power Amplifier. Here focus on an amplifier that has tuned collector load and active device transistor operating at Class- C mode and observe the output voltage and current relationship at different harmonics. To experiment .....
