But galileo galilei later proved that the analysis of aristotle was incorrect because it failed to account properly for a hidden force: friction therefore galileo is the actual founder of the “concept of inertia” he came upon the theory of inertia by considering four different scenarios involving a round object and two inclines.

Italian astronomer galileo galilei provided a number of scientific insights that laid the foundation for future scientists his investigation of the laws of motion and improvements on the telescope helped. Galileo refined the concept of inertia galileo did not believe the ball came to a rest because it desired to be in its natural state the theory of inertia says that an objects inertia will maintain its state of motion so the ball should roll on forever the ball only stops rolling because an external force (friction) causes the ball to stop the more.
1594 galileo galilei, born in pisa (italy), obtains the patent for a machine to pump water from a river for the irrigation of land the heart of the pump was a syringe galileo galilei found that 10 meters was the limit to which the water would rise in the suction pump, but had no explanation for this phenomenon scientists were then devoted to find the.
