In the early sixteenth century, the great astronomer/physicist Galileo Galilei observed the swinging motion of a large chandelier in the Pisa cathedral. He began serious observations of the pendulum, and recorded that the period of the pendulum is independent of the mass of the bob, or the amplitude of the swing. He also observed a direct relationship between the square of the period and the length of the arm.

The work that Galileo did in observing the motion of the pendulum led to such inventions as the metronome to aid timing for musical students, and the mechanical clock, which was not only more accurate, but also replaced the hourglass.

We are more than 400 years beyond the beginnings of scientifically defined pendulum motion, and now days it has many uses for the keen observer.

In recognition of the great astronomer/physicist, the Galileo Pendulum Kit has been crafted.

The Galileo pendulum kit features the following;

  1. A perfectly balanced pendulum
  2. Easy to follow instructions
  3. Four easy to use pendulum charts

Very happy!

LOVE the item I bought, have been looking for it for years! So happy to find it. The shipping was SUPER quick, and the customer service i recieved was so fast and so helpful. The only downfall was that I had to make the purchase in USD which make me question the legitimacy of the purchase and product, and was difficult to convert and know what i was really paying in AUD. Other than, that loved the experience i would purchase something again (if it were in AUD). Thank you!

I like my new kit which gives good instruction on how to use the pendulum. The pendulum itself is also good quality.
