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.

It will be available on this URL in January Share your thoughts with other customers. 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.
Come, per esempio, intendiamo che il misto di oro ed argento sia in bcontrapesato in aria da d ; il qual contrapeso, quando il misto sia posto nell’aqqua, ritorni in g: Come, per essempio, sia la bilancia abil cui perpendicolo c ; ed una massa di qualche metallo sia appesa in bcontrapesata dal peso d.

He justified his judgement with a rather shocking statement: Enabled Amazon Best Sellers Rank: We must however note that the distance gfending in the mark for silver, will show the amount of gold, and the distance ge ending in the mark for gold will indicate the quantity of silver; so that, if fg will be twice gethe said mixture will be of two [parts] of gold and one of silver.
When then I shall want to know the proportion between fg and ge I shall count the number of turns in fg and the number of turns in geand I shall find, for instance, that the turns in fg are 40 and the turns in ge 21, I shall say that in the mixture there are 40 parts of gold and 21 of silver.

Some authors have written that he proceeded by immersing the crown in water, having previously and separately immersed equal amounts [in weight] of very pure gold and silver, and, from the differences in their making the water rise or spill over, he came to recognize the mixture of gold and silver of which the crown was made.
Thus, partly through our hearing, and partly through our hand feeling an obstacle at each turn of wire, we shall easily count said turns. Amazon Renewed Refurbished products with a warranty.

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. To count them easily, therefore, take a most sharp stiletto and pass it slowly over the said wires.
Let, for instance, ab be the balance [beam] and c its point of suspension; let a piece of some metal be suspended at b and counterbalanced by the weight d. Thus, for instance, on the marks ef I wind only two turns of steel wire and I do this to distinguish them from brass ; and then I go on filling up the entire space between e and f by winding on it a very find brass wire, which will divide the space ef into many small equal part.
Thus, for instance, in a mixture of gold and silver the coils toward the mark for silver will give the quantity of gold, and the coils toward the mark for gold will indicate the quantity of silver; and the same is valid for other mixtures.

Note, however, that these metals are in inverse proportion to the distances: This study aims to show that the experimental confirmation of his conjectural ideas was a constant concern for Galileo from the very beginning of his scientific activity. Withoutabox Submit to Film Festivals. East Dane Designer Men’s Fashion. From the proposition in which the distance ef will be divided we shall accurately obtain the proportion of the two metals composing the mixture.
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. And because metals are of different [specific] gravity, their weight in water will decrease in different proportions.

A journal focused on epistemology, history and philosophy of science and in analytic philosophy Publisher: As many times as the distance ac will be greater than the distance aethat many times will the metal weigh more than water.
Indeed, this is what Galileo is credited to have done. Since the wires are very fine, as is needed for precision, it is not possible to count them visually, because the eye is dazzled by such small spaces. The difference ls the distance af and the distance ae will be the same as the difference between the [specific] gravity of gold and that of silver.
It is then clear that in water our gold ball weighs the amount by which the weight of the gold [in air] is greater than in water.

And at last, after having carefully gone over all that Archimedes demonstrates in his books On Floating Bodies and Equilibriuma method came to my mind which very accurately solves our problem.

Having done this, we must still find a way by which easily to obtain the proportions in which the distances between the marks for the pure metals are divided by the marks for the mixtures.
