Putting Isaac’s Laws Into Motion

by CHLOE DETHORNE, ZOEE ARREGUIN and RAEANNA MAEGAARD

Isaac Newton possesses the accomplishments of many things. For one, Newton developed the three laws of motion. Newton’s first law states that an object at rest stays at rest, and an object in motion stays in motion. The second law states that acceleration of an object depends on the mass and force acting on it. Finally, the third law states that for for every action, there is an equal or opposite reaction.

These laws form the basic principles of modern physics. Other than developing these laws, Newton had work in universal gravitation. He concluded that the force of gravitational attraction between the Earth and other objects is inversely proportional to the distance of separating the earth’s center from the object’s center. In addition, Newton discovered calculus, which led to more cogents ways of solving mathematical problems. To sum, Newton’s ideas of motion and gravity has greatly affected our world today.

Newton’s discoveries have greatly impacted the world. His development of the three laws of motion have allowed for the knowledge of inertia and why objects stay still until the movement is forced upon it. Physics opened a window of acknowledgement of movement and energy. Certain explanations of why physical attributes and how they became are given with his discovery of physics.
