Isaac Newton was born in Woolsthorpe, England on January 4th, 1643. He was born extremely premature and wasn’t expected to live, but he did and lived to make many amazing scientific and mathematical discoveries. Isaac Newton is known worldwide for many famous discoveries. He was an extremely intelligent man. Some of the most famous of his discoveries included discovering lots of information in optics, motion, mathematics, and a ton of laws and rules for physics that we use almost everyday today.

Isaac Newton lived a very intelligent and successful life. He never had any children and never was married either. He spent most of his time in science. As he grew older, and was around 80, he began to start having major digestion problems. He had to start watching and monitor what he was eating and couldn’t move very easily anymore. By March of 1727 Newton began to have extremely severe pains in his stomach. This

The 1st law is usually referred to as “The Law of Inertia”. This law states that an object at rest is going to stay at rest until it is acted upon by an unbalanced force. An object in motion is going to remain in motion, traveling in the same direction and at the same speed, until it is also acted upon by an unbalanced force. The 2nd Law states that whenever a force acts on a mass, then acceleration is going to be produced. The formula that is popularly used is Force = Mass X Acceleration. The 3rd Law states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. This means that each force you have is going to have a reaction force that will be equal in size, but the direction will be opposite.

Newton’s 3 Laws of Motion were first stated in his Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy, which was first published in 1687. During this time Newton’s discovery of the laws was a very huge deal. They helped to build on other discoveries because, before his laws no one knew much, or any at all, about gravity and
