Wiki - Evidence for Universal Acceleration
« on: May 06, 2020, 11:06:56 AM »
Hi, I found this sentence in the listed topic and I had a question concerning the sentence.

"Galileo Galilei was among the first who experimentally realized that all bodies accelerate at the same rate."

Should the word "falling," be included between the words, "all," and "bodies?"
I didn't say (conversion of) thermal energy wasn't involved at all.
A rocket does not create thrust by converting thermal energy.

Yes, that sounds better. I've made that update. There are probably many wordings and things that can be improved.
