What did Galileo discover about the amount of speed a ball gained each second when rolling down an inclined plane? What did this say about the ball’s acceleration?
Solution 15RQ Step 1 In the experiment of ball rolling down in an inclined plane, galileo observed that the speed gained by the ball in each second is constant. That is the gained same amount of speed in each second, if the inclination remains constant. Also he observed that the speed gained each second by the ball is independent of the mass and only depends on the inclination of the plane.
