Galileo’s Theory

Describe Galileo’s mathematical-experimental method. Explain how he used it to formulate a new theory of motion and how this theory contributed to the acceptance of Copernican heliocentric theory. In particular, explain how Galileo’s theory disposes of the Aristotelian objections to the hypothesis of a moving Earth based on observations of free-falling bodies. Use Galileo’s discussion in his “Dialogue Concerning Two Chief World Systems” to support your analysis.
