Theories of Newton

Theory of Gravity

Newton's theory of motion was that every mass attracts every other mass in the universe. There are 3 specific laws of this theory and the first one is known as inertia. Inertia is the theory that an object will never move without an outside force and will never stop moving without any outside forces. The second law is force = momentum/time, momentum = mass x velocity, acceleration = velocity/time and force = momentum x acceleration. Last the third law states that every action has an opposite reaction.

Theory of universal gravity

Newton's law of universal gravity states that every particle attracts every other particle using a force that is equal to the product of their masses and equal to the square of the distance between them.

Equation to Universal Gravity

Shape of the Earth

Newton had a theory that the Earth was most likely an oblate spheroid (sphere flattening at the poles). Although his theory was proven right by the measurements of Maupertuis, La Condamine, and many others.

Impact of Newton's Idea on Society

Many scientists before Newton tried to find equation but they weren't sure how gravity worked. Newton amazed people with his equations.

How his thoughts impacted traditional belief

Old Idea

Before Newton's ideas people knew that the Earth attracted things but they didn't understand why and how. It was a mystery to them on why the earth didn't fall into the sun.

New Idea

Newton found out equations for gravity and velocity, which helped people understand the connection with them.


Atheism is so senseless. When I look at the solar system, I see the Earth at the right distance from the sun to receive the proper amounts of heat and light. This did not happen by chance.

This quotes means that not believing in God doesn't make any sense because the Earth was placed in the perfect spot which it could hold life and that wasn't luck.
