Other questions about "Galileo"

Q: 1) How was Galileo's approach to win understanding of nature different from Aristotle's approach? Discuss the merits of Galileo's way.

Galileo is famous for an experimental method called controlled experiments. Galileo became curious about the motion of the pendulum while watching a swinging chandelier. He had controlled two variables, length and mass, to determine that the period of a pendulum is independent of displacement. This was a new way to test knowledge. Using controlled experiments, he discovered three important properties of the pendulum. Both mass and displacement had little effect on period, but changing the length of a pendulum changes its period. The Galileo’s approach was detailed, carefully controlling independent variables. On the contrary, Aristotle depended too much upon sensory observations while the senses can easily get tricked. This is probably why he failed to discover gravity and fraction in his experiments. does this sound natural?
A: Oh, I understand now! I might’ve just been a little dumb or would it have sounded a bit more natural if you put ‘even though the senses can easily get tricked’? You should specify that what Aristotle is doing is negative since it doesn’t lead to a perfect result.

“Unfortunately, Aristotle, on the contrary of Galileo, depended/focused too much on sensory observations, knowing human senses are easily tricked.”
It’s saying Galileo’s experiments leads to something, whilst Aristotle’s doesn’t.
Sorry for trouble!

He was born in Italy in 1564. does this sound natural?

“Galileo Galilei was a physicist, astronomer, and philosopher.”
Q: "Galileo was condemned by the Catholic Church for “suspicion of heresy” when he stated that the Earth revolved around the Sun. And not the other way around as written in the Bible."

What does 'around' mean in this context?
A: “The other way around” = the opposite of what was said.

He said that the Earth revolved around the Sun. “The other way around” of this would be that the Sun revolves around the Earth, which is not true.
Q: Galileo is known for being the first to claim that the Earth moves around the Sun. does this sound natural?
A: REVOLVES around the sun.
