Sir Isaac Newton, does the name sound familiar? That’s because he discovered gravity by an apple falling on his head from a tree. He didn’t discover the law of gravity right then and there, but it was this experience that helped set the course for the rest of his life. Sir Isaac Newton’s life was a combination of childhood tragedies, educational struggles, and many achievements. So let’s go back to where it all started when he was born.
Sir Isaac Newton was born on December 25, 1642 (January 4th, 1643 in the Georgian calendar). Tragedies struck 3 months after his birth when his father died.

Whenever one object exerts a force on the second object, the second object exerts an equal and opposite force on the first. Some people might know this as Action, Reaction.
The Law of Gravity states, two bodies attract with a force that is proportional to the product of the masses and inversely proportional to the square distance between them.
