Example text

Finalmente, vino un brillante descubrimiento que hoy se conoce como la tercera ley de Keplero, que dice: los cuadrados de los períodos de revolución de los diferentes planetas en torno al Sol están en la misma razón que los cubos de sus distancias medias al Sol. En la Figura 8 b damos un esquema de las órbitas de los planetas llamados interiores —Mercurio, Venus, Tierra y Marte— con sus distancias expresadas en términos de los radios de la órbita terrestre (la llamada Unidad Astronómica) y los períodos de su revolución en años.

El movimiento de un péndulo es un caso especial de la caída originada por la fuerza de la gravedad. Si soltamos una piedra, que no está atada a nada, caerá en línea recta al suelo. Pero si la piedra está atada a un gancho en el techo se ve forzada a caer a lo largo de un arco de círculo. Si una piedra ligera y otra pesada, atadas a una cuerda, emplean el mismo tiempo en alcanzar la posición más baja (un cuarto del período de oscilación), entonces ambas piedras deben emplear el mismo tiempo en caer al suelo cuando se las suelta de la misma altura.

La componente vertical del movimiento de la piedra será una caída libre y acelerada y así chocará contra la cubierta justo en la base del mástil. Lo mismo ocurrirá, naturalmente, si arrojamos un objeto dentro de un coche de un tren que se mueve o dentro de una cabina de un avión que vuela, cualquiera que sea la velocidad de estos vehículos. Todo esto nos parece sencillo y evidente en nuestro tiempo, pero no así cuando vivía Galileo. Entonces se creía, conforme a las enseñanzas de Aristóteles, que dominaba el pensamiento científico de la época, que el objeto se mueve tanto tiempo como sea impulsado y se detendrá en cuanto desaparece la fuerza.
