- Isaac Newton was raised by his grandmother.

Newtons Education

- He attended Free Grammar School

Newtons Ideas

- Newton had new ideas about motion, which he

called his three laws of motion. - He also had ideas about gravity, the diffraction

of light, and forces.

The Three Laws of Motion

- Law 1 Law of Inertia
- Law 2 F m x a
- Law 3 Action/Reaction

Law 1 Law of Inertia

- An object at rest will remain at rest unless

acted on by an unbalanced force. - An object in motion continues in motion with the

same speed and in the same direction unless acted

upon by an unbalanced force. - This law is often called "the law of inertia".

Law 2 F m x a

- Acceleration is produced when a force acts on a

mass. - The greater the mass (of the object being

accelerated) the greater the amount of force

needed (to accelerate the object).

Law 2 F m x a

- The Second Law gives us an exact relationship

between force, mass, and acceleration. It can be

expressed as a mathematical equation - F m x a
- FORCE MASS x ACCELERATION

Law 3 Action/Reaction

- For every action there is an equal and opposite

re-action.
