Poema para Galileu

A Queda Livre – Galileu Descreve o Movimento
Parte 6 de 6 da série A mecânica de Galileu

Poema para Galileu

 

 

 

Diz a minha mãe que eu comecei a fazer versos aos 5 anos e aos 10 tive a comoção de ver os primeiros impressos e públicos.
Escrever poemas foi sempre para mim um estado de angústia, um sofrimento autêntico. Amorteci todo esse sofrimento durante anos até ao dia em que por motivos dolorosos me desfiz dele por completo na ingénua presunção de que me atrapalhava. Sobre isso

Soluções dos Desafios

 

Desafio 1

Houve muitos trabalhos que antecederam o de Galileu, no que diz respeito ao movimento. No período de 1280 a 1340, matemáticos de Merton College, em Oxford, meditaram cuidadosamente sobre diversas grandezas que variavam com o tempo. Um teorema geral, conhecido por “Teorema de Merton” ou “Regra da Velocidade Média”, resume um resultado que se mostrou de grande importância.

Este teorema, … Ler mais

Parte 3 de 6 da série A mecânica de Galileu

A teoria aristotélica do movimento

O modelo de Universo de Ptolomeu era essencialmente o aristotélico, ou seja, um cosmo finito, constituído de esferas concêntricas, com a Terra imóvel no centro. A atmosfera chegaria até a altura da Lua, definindo o espaço do mundo “sublunar”, constituído por quatro elementos, Terra, Água, Fogo e Ar. A partir da esfera da Lua, no mundo “supralunar”, constituído de um “quinto elemento”, o Éter, haveria … Ler mais

Parte 1 de 6 da série A mecânica de Galileu

Abordaremos o desenvolvimento de um importante exemplo de investigação básica: o estudo dos corpos em queda livre feito por Galileu Galilei. Embora o problema físico da queda livre seja por si só interessante, o estudo será orientado para a maneira como Galileu, um dos primeiros cientistas modernos, apresentou os seus argumentos. A sua perspetiva do mundo, a sua maneira de pensar, o seu uso da matemática e a sua … Ler mais

Horizon: Secrets of the Solar System

A look at how new planets being discovered are forcing scientists to rewrite the history of our own solar system

New planets are now being discovered outside our solar system on a regular basis, and these strange new worlds are forcing scientists to rewrite the history of our own solar system. Far from a simple story of stable orbits, the creation of our solar system is a tale of hellfire, chaos and planetary pinball.

It’s a miracle our Earth is here at all.

Horizon: The Mystery of Dark Energy

Horizon looks at dark energy - the mysterious force that is unexpectedly causing the universe's expansion to speed up

The effects of dark energy were discovered in 1998, but physicists still don’t know what it is. Worse, its very existence calls into question Albert Einstein‘s general theory of relativity – the cornerstone of modern physics.

The hunt for the identity of dark energy is on. Experiments on earth and in space generate data that might provide a clue, but there are also hopes that another Einstein might emerge – someone who can write a new theory explaining the … Ler mais

Horizon: Is Everything We Know About The Universe Wrong?

Investigating the discovery of what is ominously being called 'dark flow', a phenomenon which could mean scientists might have to find a new way of understanding the universe

There’s something very odd going on in space – something that shouldn’t be possible. It is as though vast swathes of the universe are being hoovered up by a vast and unseen celestial vacuum cleaner.

Sasha Kashlinsky, the scientist who discovered the phenomenon, is understandably nervous: ‘It left us quite unsettled and jittery’ he says, ‘because this is not something we planned to find’. The accidental discovery of what is ominously being called ‘dark flow‘ not only … Ler mais
