The present and the Scientific Revolution & Enlightenment is connected in many ways. For example the way force and gravity works. As in Newton’s three laws of motion. The first law says, every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it. This statement is true today, for example if something is just in one place it will not move unless you put a force on it or move it with your hands. The second law it states, the relationship between an object's mass m, its acceleration a, and the applied force F is F = ma. Acceleration and force are vectors (as indicated by their symbols being displayed in slant bold font); in this law the direction of the force vector is the same as the direction of the acceleration vector. This law says how things turn with the right amount of acceleration and force.
the third law states, For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. This means for every force the opposing force will react back by giving a force even if it is a light force.

The resources I used to compare the art work of the Renaissance and now were the internet. My website resource was __http://www.pbs4549.org/middleages/reform_art.htm__

From this website it informed me of how science was used in art, which is also what we do now. Such as compasses, we use these to make perfect circles just as they did in there churches.
This is the article I found.
Architecture
In the Middle Ages, churches were no longer shaped like crosses. They used the circle to represent the perfection of God. Symmetry became important. In homes, some of the features of the period were courtyards, columns as support structures and domed roofs (a very difficult architectural task).


Another website I used to compare science use in art to now was __http://library.thinkquest.org/3257/principles.html__
From this site it show pictures and explains how the science was used in art and who started it.
This is the article I found
In the early 1400s, Leon Battista Alberti suggested painting be considered a Liberal Art with a scientific basis. In De pictura (1435) he expressed optical perspective as a geometrical technique which could be applied by artists to their work. He realized the distance between the artists and the subject determined the rate of recession and suggested the use of a gridded glass instrument as an aid in drawings. Both __Leonardo da Vinci__ and __Albrecht Dürer__ were influenced by Alberti and built modified versions of the mechanical device.


Last I used a website called __http://library.thinkquest.org/2838/artgal.htm__. In this website it list names of important artist of the Renaissance. Such as Raphael, Giotto, Botticelli, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Titian. It also list their most famous works and a short biography about them.
