# Sir Isaac Newton And The Modern Era Of Scientific Thinking Essay

Newton published his laws in 1687 by formalizing a description of massive bodies moving under the influence of external forces. To formulate his three laws of motion, Newton simplified the massive bodies by making them mathematical points that have no size or rotation so that he would not have to worry about factors like friction, air resistance, temperature, material properties, etc., and a phenomenon that is described in terms of mass, length and time. The three laws are not used to describe the behaviour of large objects but they provide accurate approximations.

Newton 's First Law of Motion states, “A body at rest will remain at rest, and a body in motion with remain in motion unless it is…
