Evolution of 'MOTION'
Induced by 'push' or 'pull' applied externally
Made of 'Quintessence'
Natural State: Circular Motion
Made of Earth, Water, Fire, Air
Heavier Objects Fall Faster
Natural State: At Rest in its 'natural' place
Motion: Straight up or down
Earth and other planets orbit around the Sun
Experiment to test Aristotelian Hypothesis: Drop different masses from an equal height.
Actual Observation: All objects fall at the same speed irrespective of difference in their weights.
Experiments with inclined plane
If there is no interference, a moving object will keep moving in a straight line forever, without any force acting on it.
Simplest explanation of observations of planets and the sun
Moves only to achieve natural place
Moving object is constantly being acted upon by a force
Interpretation of observations of nature.
Mathematical analysis of meticulous observations
Observations in Nature + Conduct experiments to test hypotheses
