If we now immerse the metal in water and leave the counterpoise in air, we must bring the said counterpoise closer to the point of suspension [of the balance beam] in order to balance the metal. Come, per esempio, intendiamo che il misto di oro ed argento sia in bcontrapesato in aria da d ; il qual contrapeso, quando il misto sia posto nell’aqqua, ritorni in g: L et us suspend a [piece of] metal on [one arm of] a scale of great precision, and on the other arm a counterpoise weighing as much as the piece of metal in air.

1 Introduction

O n the marks for the pure metals wind a single turn of very fine wire, and around the intervals between marks wind a brass wire, also very fine: T his method consists in using a balance whose construction and use we shall presently explain, after having expounded what is needed to understand it.

Full-text article available to subscribers or on a “pay per view” basis. Let us now suppose that silver, which is less heavy than gold, weighs twelve times as much as water; if silver is weighed in water its weight will decrease by a twelfth.

This [principle] was demonstrated by Archimedes, but because his demonstration is very laborious I shall leave it aside, so as not to take too much time, and I shall demonstrate it by other means. Amazon Restaurants Food delivery from local restaurants. So, for instance, let us assume that the mixture of gold and silver is at bbalanced in air by dand that his counterweight goes to g when the mixture is immersed in water.

Contents – Previous document. Bilzncetta therefore we weigh it in air first, and if then we want the same counterpoise to balance it when immersed in water, we shall have to shift said counterpoise closer to the point of suspension c than the point ewhich is the mark for gold, and farther than bilncettawhich is the mark of pure silver, and therefore will fall between the marks e and f.

Thus, for instance, in a mixture of gold and silver the coils toward the mark for silver will give the quantity of gold, and the coils toward the mark for gold will indicate the quantity of silver; and the same is valid for bilajcetta mixtures. If we immerse the weight b in water the weight d at a in the air will weigh more [than b in bilancettw, and to make it weigh the same we should bring it closer to the point of suspension cfor instance to e.


Having done this, we must still find a way by which easily to obtain the proportions in which the distances between the marks for the pure metals are divided by the marks for the mixtures. To count them biilancetta, therefore, take a most sharp stiletto and pass it slowly over the said wires.

The same can be said of other metals. English Choose a language for shopping. H ere we must warn that a difficulty in counting arises: Get to Know Us. Come, per essempio, sia la bilancia abil cui perpendicolo c ; ed una massa di qualche metallo sia appesa in bcontrapesata dal peso d.

He justified his judgement with a rather shocking statement: This study aims to show that the experimental confirmation of his conjectural ideas was a constant concern for Galileo from the very beginning of his scientific activity.

One must first know that solid bodies that sink in water weigh in water so much less than in air as is the weight in air of a volume of water equal to that of the body. But my knowing that this way was altogether false and lacking that precision which bipancetta needed in mathematical questions made me think several times how, by means of water, one could bilancettq determine the mixture of two metals.
