Galileo Galilei 1564 –1642 Aristotle had said heavier objects fall faster Galileo - All objects fall with the same constant acceleration. The change in velocity is proportional to the elapsed time. Δv ~ Δt v 2 − v 1 ~ time elapsed

5
Acceleration Acceleration – How quickly the velocity changes a = Δv / t = (v 2 -v 1 )/t Velocity – How quickly the position changes v = s/t = Δx/t = (x 2 -x 1 )/t
