Newton's mother Hannah Ayscough remarried leaving behind her 3 year old son. Newton spent his younger years living with his grandmother on his mom's side after his mother

Newton's first law explains why objects move. Newton's first law states that “An object at rest remains at rest, or if in motion, remains in motion at a constant velocity unless acted on by a net external force.” It cannot get much simpler than Newton's law. Objects will only move if there is force acted upon the object. The most important of the three laws is the second. Newton's second law tells how a net force will affect the acceleration of an object. Newton's second law states that ”Force is equal to the change in momentum (mV) per change in time. For a constant mass, force equals mass times acceleration, F = ma.” Newton's third law of motion lays the foundation for the understanding of a reaction from every action. Newton's third law states that “For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.” helicopter for example display the third law. As the propellers of the helicopter spin in circles it creates a downward flow of energy. The energy being pushed down causes an equal amount of force causing the helicopter to lift off the ground.
