Before this discussion goes much further, it might help if those
interested took a look at
Thomas B. Settle, "An Experiment in the History of Science", _Science_,
New Series, Vol. 133, No. 3445. (Jan. 6, 1961), pp. 19-23, where the
author reports on a reconstruction of the experiment described by
Galileo in Day III of the _Two New Sciences_ with fairly good results.
