Encyclopaedia Britannica Films; O. W. Eshbach; Warren P. Everote
Develops the law of falling bodies and credits Galileo for his work in this area. Shows by experiment and slow motion photography that all bodies fall at the same rate of speed and uses the inclined plane to determine speed, acceleration, and distance traveled in given times. Derives the formulas S=10t(2), S=1/2at(2), and S=1/2gt(2).
