<title> RIASSUNTO </title>Poche ma significative note di lavoro di Galileo trattano di esperimenti. Questo articolo esamina un manoscritto (folio 189v). Si sostiene che esso è il resoconto di un esperimento preciso nel quale Galileo determina empiricamente i tempi di caduta per archi e corde (pendoli e piani) e quindi sviluppa un metodo per determinare il tempo di caduta per una data altezza, dato il quarto di periodo di un pendolo. L'analisi dimostra anche che Galileo fu consapevole del non isocronismo del pendolo (nonostante nelle sue pubblicazioni abbia affermato il contrario). Fu anche consapevole dell'inerzia di rotazione e misurò abbastanza precisamente i suoi effetti. Qui si discute in modo circostanziato tale tesi e si prendono in considerazione le ragioni che indussero Galileo a non pubblicare questi risultati.
