Galileo did not complete his degree and was forced back into Pisa because of his lack of funds.

Once again he returns to the University of Pisa and this time receives a position as a lecturer.

After this he applies and is awarded the chair of mathematics at the University of Padua, where he stayed until 1610.

He left Padua shortly after, and he gained knowledge of the telescope. He returned quickly to Padua to improve the magnification.

He left and became the first philosopher and mathematician to the grand duke of Tuscany.

## Who Galileo worked for.

## Galileo's Telescope

One of his first inventions was the telescope, he used it to determine that earth was not the center of the universe. His telescope could magnify 3 times, with this telescope he was able to look at the moon and he can also look at the 4 moons of Jupiter.

## The Hydro static Balance

Another one of Galileo's works was the hydrostatic balance, it is to show that a fluid is said to be in hydrostatic equilibrium or hydrostatic balance when it is at rest, or when the flow velocity at each point is constant over time.

## The Pendulum

In a university, Galileo examined a lamp swinging from side to side, he discovered the pendulum period, a period in which a pendulum swings back and forth.
