Newton 's Laws Of Motion

Decent Essays
Back before Newton, scientist held their own perceptions about motion, gravity ,etc. They didn 't really understand the whole concept of motion nor gravity. Before Newton, the world was not as advanced as today. There were no planes, no rockets, no walking on the moon, no cars, and the list can go on. However, it wasn’t until Newton came and cleared the confusion scientist and people had about the universe and motion. Sir Isaac Newton, discovered the three laws of motion. Everyday, human experience these laws when they move. Whether they are fighting, rolling a ball, or even driving a car. Newton changed our understanding of the universe by enumerating his Three Laws of Motion. Newton’s laws provide the basis for the study of Dynamics, and describe the fundamental laws of motion. Newton’s laws has shaped the world as we know it today. In this essay, I will describe what the laws are, my experiences with them, and why are they so important. Believe it or not we use these laws everyday, and this essay will prove to many that without the understanding of Newton and his laws life will not exist how we know it. The first law(Law of Inertia) states “ every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it.’’ This law means that if an object is not moving then it will stay still, unless force is added to the object. When force is added to an object, it moves at a constant velocity, and keeps moving until
