H ere we must warn that a difficulty in counting arises: Suspend it in its middle point; then adjust the arms so that bilanxetta are in equilibrium, by thinning out whichever happens to be heavier; and on one of the arms mark the points where the counterpoises of the pure metals go bulancetta these are weighed in water, being careful to weigh the purest metals that can be found.
If 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 fwhich is the mark of pure silver, and therefore will fall between the lw e and f.
To count them easily, therefore, take a most sharp stiletto and pass it slowly over the said wires.

Thus the weight of gold in water decreases less than that bilncetta silver, since the first decreases by a twentieth, the second by a twelfth. February 25, Sold by: But if we shall have a mixture of gold and silver it is clear that because this mixture is in part silver it will weigh less than pure gold, and because it is in part gold it will weigh more than pure silver.

If we now immerse the metal in water and leave the counterpoise in air, we bbilancetta bring the said counterpoise closer to the point of suspension [of the balance beam] in order to balance the metal. 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.
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.
Read more Read less. Indeed, this is what Galileo is credited to have done. L et us then assume that weight b is gold and that when this is weighed in water, the counterpoise goes back to e ; then we do the same with very pure silver and when we weigh it in water its counterpoise goes in f. The same can be said of other metals.
In order to support my view, I shall quote his early experimental work and first show the extent to which he was able to analyse his results in depth by himself.

Not Enabled Screen Reader: He consulted with them and their advice helped him to come to his final conclusion regarding his insight.
This point will be closer to c [than is e ], as the experiment shows us, because silver is lighter than gold. Get to Know Us. The difference between the distance af and the distance ae will be the same as the difference between the [specific] gravity of gold and that of silver.
Contents – Previous document. Indice interattivo – Presentazione – La Bilancetta – Note. Homage to Galileo Galilei O n the marks for the pure metals wind a single turn of very bliancetta wire, and around the intervals between marks wind a brass wire, also very fine: If the ball were made of water it would have no weight at all because water inside water neither rises nor sinks.
Write a customer review. Thus, partly through our hearing, and partly through bilancefta hand feeling an obstacle at each turn of wire, we shall easily count said turns.
But my knowing that this way was altogether false and lacking that precision which is needed in mathematical questions made me think several times how, by means of water, one could exactly determine the mixture of two metals.
I think it probable that this method is the same that Archimedes followed, since, besides being very accurate, it is based on demonstrations found by Archimedes himself.
