Galileo climbed 290+ steps in the Tower of Pisa to tests his theory of mass versus time. I've been to the beautiful Tower, now leaning, it's a long way up. What if Galileo had SolidWorks Motion to illustrate the path of a particle in a straight line or an inclined plane?
Student Andrea Baracco, Politecnico di Torino, under the direction of Professor Vittorio Vicentini, illustrates the work of Galileo and the Brachistonecurve, the curve between two points through which a body moves with SolidWorks Motion.
Thank you Andrea for sharing your video, paper and SolidWorks model with the SolidWorks Community. Marie
