FC: The leaning tower of Pisa`s Architecture, it`s relationship with Galileo, and what is being done to fix it all affects the way it is famous today! | By:Rhea Mehta

1: Architecture | Engineers | Engineers worked to stabilize the leaning tower of Pisa. The engineers did not plan to have the leaning tower of Pisa leaning on purpose. The engineers attempted to fix the tower but everything was unsuccessful.

2: When it started tilting | It started tilting before they finished the building. Engineers found out that the tower is tilting 1 inch every 20 years. Also the tower kept tilting till it was 17 feet from vertical.

3: The architecture made it leaning | The architecture mostly made the tower tilt. They did not realize that the tower was leaning from when they started building. Then after they opened the building to the public people kept climbing the spiral stairs which made it lean even more.

4: How the tower was 4 feet and 7 inches from vertical in 1350 | The tower leaned every 20 years. It started leaning in 1350 because that was when the third floor was started to be built.

5: Galileo | He loses weight at the same time period speed as the leaning tower of Pisa leans. | Galileo loses weight at the same time period as the tower. This was very unusual and different.

6: What he predicts | First Galileo predicted that he loses weight at the same time. Then he found out that his proof is not so accurate. Then a man named Aristotle predicted the same thing except in a better way.

7: What is being done to fix it and why do we know about this building | How could it tilt even more | If engineers don`t fix the tower in 20 years or more then it could tilt even more. Also if they leave the tower as it is or if they try to do something but it makes the tower lean even more then it could lean more.

8: Why we know about this building | We know about this building because it leans. Also we know about this tower because it is an example of Romanesque and because it is 187 feet high and 17 feet leaning. Also it has never fell so it is famous.

9: Conclusion | The leaning tower of Pisa is famous today because of it`s architecture,what is being done to fix, and it`s relationship with Galileo .
