PENDULAR OSCILLATIONS Another difficulty which Galilei encountered in his dynamic researches was that of eliminating the resistance. which the air offered to the moving bodies with which he experimented. The GALILEO GALILEI 43 air-pump had not yet been invented, so the influence o f the air could not be eliminated. But Galilei felt sure that the difference in the velocity of a falling cork and of a falling piece o f lead was due to the greater retardation suffered by the light cork than by the heavy lead through the same amount o f air-resistance.
