Sun Nov 11 2001 13:30:00 GMT-0500 (Eastern Standard Time) · In classical mechanics Newton s laws of motion are three laws that describe the relationship between the motion of an object and the forces acting on it. The first law states that an object either remains at rest or continues to move at a constant velocity unless it is acted upon by an external force. The second law states that the rate of change of momentum of an object …
Isaac Newton was born (according to the Julian calendar in use in England at the time) on Christmas Day 25 December 1642 (NS 4 January 1643) “an hour or two after midnight” at Woolsthorpe Manor in Woolsthorpe-by-Colsterworth a hamlet in the county of Lincolnshire. His father also named Isaac Newton had died three months before. Born prematurely Newton was a small child; his mother …
Wed Jun 11 2003 14:30:00 GMT-0400 (Eastern Daylight Time) · Newton s law of universal gravitation is usually stated as that every particle attracts every other particle in the universe with a force that is directly proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between their centers. The publication of the theory has become known as the ” first great unification” as it marked the unification of the …

Newton s first law of motion states that objects continue to move in a state of constant velocity unless acted upon by an external net force (resultant force). This law is an extension of Galileo’s insight that constant velocity was associated with a lack of net force (see a more detailed description of this below ).
