Historical/Experimental Notes for Newton's Investigation of the Oscillation of Fluids. Experiment No. 4.
This paper attempts to promote an understanding of physics through its history and replication of the oscillation experiments of Isaac Newton and Daniel Bernoulli from the 17th and 18th centuries. The experiments described can be treated at a level of sophistication to suit the interests and capabilities of the student. Reproductions in the appendices include: (1) extracts from Newton's "Principia"; (2) essays in the history of mechanics; (3) an English translation of Bernoulli's "Hydrodynamica"; (4) an article on the history of physics; and (5) an article on Newton and fluid mechanics from "Newton Tercentenary Celebrations."
