Describe Galileo's analysis of projectile motion and outline Newton's concept of escape velocity.

Through experiments, Galileo was able to determine the path which projectiles followed. By using an inclined plane, table, and inked bronze ball, Galileo was able to ... g an inclined plane, table, and inked bronze ball, Galileo was able to perform experiments to study projectile motion as he did with uniformly accelerated motion. He placed an inclined plane on a tabl ... d. After repeating the experiment with different variables, Galileo realized that the path that the projectile was following a set path.After examining his results and viewing the horizontal and verti ...
