What Is: The Law Of Universal Gravitation? The tree and the apple.


It all started when Isaac Newton compared the acceleration of the moon to the acceleration of objects on earth, this led him to believe that gravitational forces were responsible for each. These comparissons led him to say that the force of gravitational attraction between the Earth and other objects is inversely proportional to each other. But distance is not the only variable effecting the magnitude of a gravitational force. In accord with Newton's famous equation: Fnet = m*aYou see, Newton knew what force were acting on the apple that fell from the tree. (Gravity) this force plays a major role on our systems and life. Without it there would be no connections between objects and matter.If you think About it, All these things are extremely important to our society today. I mean c'mon, it's physics. Dont ingore it. If you want to be good at something first you need to understand the concepts around it.


This is great! I'm doing a 6 page report on Isaac Newton and this is just the kind of information I need. Thank you so much!!!!


Yea, our teacher just taught us that today! GL on your report man.
