Scientific Revolution: The Scientific Method

The Scientific Revolution started by having many questions that the church couldn't answer. The way scientist would answer their answers is by using Scientific Method. The experimented over & over again to approve or disapprove an idea. Scientist started to prove the church wrong. The Scientific Method included of : making observations , then making a "hypothesis" describing what you see , with the hypothesis you'll make predictions & test it with a experiment. When you've done that a few more times then you'll make sure you have the same results.

A theory that uses Scientific Method is what Galileo did with Aristotle theory that heavier objects fall faster than lighter objects. Galileo threw a bowling ball & a baseball from the Learning Tower of Pisa. They both fell at the same rate. He found out that different weights fall at the same speeds.
