Issac Newton By: Amane Amin

Basic information about Issac Newton

He was born January 4, 1643 in Woolsthorpe-by-Colsterworth, United Kingdom

Quote of wisdom

"If I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants.

I can calculate the motion of heavenly bodies, but not the madness of people.

Tact is the knack of making a point without making an enemy." ~ Issac Newton

To me this quote shows how peoples madness and jealousy can't be explainable. People will always try to be above you and try to take you ideas.

Issac Newtons theories

Newtons first theory

Newtons first law of motion states that object s continue to move in a state of constant velocity, which can be zero, unless acted upon by an external force. The tendency of an object to resist a change in motion is known as inertia.

Newtons second theory

Newton's second law shows how an object will be affected if an external force does act upon it. This law states that the rate of change of momentum of a body is proportional to the resultant force acting on it, and will be in the same direction.

Newton's law of universal gravitation

Newton's law of universal gravitation states that every mass attracts every other mass in the universe, and the gravitational force between two bodies is proportional to the product of their masses, and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.

Newtons third theory

Newton's third law states that the force on an object is always due to another object; all forces act in pairs that are equal in magnitude and opposite in direction. This is why you feel recoil when you strike an object, and why you do not fall through the Earth due to the pull of gravity.

Newtons fourth theory

The combination of Newton's second and third laws shows that momentum must be conserved. This means that the total momentum of two objects will remain the same before and after a collision.

Newtons impact on society

Newton is the only scientist that found an equation for gravity although many scientists tried and failed.

Traditional belief

Old belief

Before people new that earth was attracted to things but they just didn't know how. They always wondered how earth didn't fall into the sun

New beleifes

Newton figured out new equations for gravity and velocity that made sense to people and answered their questions.
