But, even after his death, people still respect the man that discovered gravity.

Newton died at the age 84. He was found dead the morning after the sleep in which he would never awake. Newton died on March 31st 1727, and was buried in Westminster Abbey. However, after his death, Newton's hair was examined and found to have mercury in it. Probably a result from the many experiments he had conducted. People think that Newton most likely died from mercury poisoning.

When Isaac Newton was 62 years old, he was knighted by Queen Anne in 1705, thus changing his name to Sir Isaac Newton.

Isaac Newton was born January 4th 1643, and died on March 31st 1727

Young Isaac Newton 

Isaac Newton and family.

However, when Isaac was a child he often conducted experiments, including an experiment that involved sticking a needle in his eye.

Newton was born premature, and was not expected to live more than a few hours. Instead, he went on to become one of the greatest scientists of all time.

As Newton grew older, he became more and more interested in school.. He soon was to become a major mathematician, astronomer, and scientist.

When Newton was young, he often struggled in school and studies. Whoever thought he would be one of the most amazing scientists of the world?

An example of Newton's 3rd law. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Newton's second law of motion states that when an equal force is pushed against an unequal force, there is less acceleration. But, when two equal forces push against each other, it equals MUCH greater acceleration.

An example of newtons 1st law. Inertia. 

Newton's Laws of Motion

Isaac Newton's first law of motion states that an object at rest will continue to stay at rest unless acted upon by an external force. In other words, if an object is not moving, it will not start moving unless someone or something moves it.

A force is a push or pull. Thus, Newton's third law proves it right. For example, on the picture to your right you will see metal balls swinging from the string that is holding them up. When you pull back the first ball and let it go, the ball slams into the other balls. After the first ball causes all the balls to quiver except the last one, the last one will go flying into the air because all the other balls have been saving up their energy for this. In other words, for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

An example of Newtons 2nd law. Acceleration.

Now, let's say you are driving in your car and the car in front of you suddenly stops. You slam on the brakes and are thrust forward. Why did this happen? Newton explains it all. When you are driving at a normal speed, and the car in front of you stops, you are pulled forward by an unbalanced force. what you are experiencing is called inertia. Inertia happens when two unbalanced (or balanced) forces collide. So when you stop, it's inertia that's stopping you.

Law 1

Imagine that you have a cup, a penny, and a piece of paper. You put the cup on the ground, and lay a piece of paper over the cup. Next, you drop the penny onto the piece of paper. Now, you pull the piece of paper out from under the penny, and the penny falls into the cup. What you just was Isaac Newton's first law of motion.

Isaac Newton came up with the first law of motion when he was twenty three years old. Who knows? Maybe someday you will become one of the most amazing scientists of all time!

Here is another example of Newton's first law. Two people are pressing their hands against the other persons hands, and they are both pushing as hard as they can. They cannot move each other because they are both balanced forces to each other. In other words, they both have the same amount of strength.

Another example of inertia.

Another demonstration of Newtons second law, is the force equals mass times acceleration. Another way to put it, F = M x A. Now, look at the picture with the girl and the apple on the seesaw. The girl weighs more than the apple, so the side of the seesaw that she's on, drops down. The apple's side of the seesaw flies upward, and stays there because the girl is heavier than the apple.

Law 2

Isaac Newton proves that objects that stay in rest tend to stay in rest. So, they would never move unless an equal balance moved them. If you wanted to move your couch, you  would have to push or pull it. But, it's most likely that you won't be able to move your couch because you are not strong enough. That is what Newton called an unbalanced force. Now, let's say you and your friend are both trying to move the couch and you manage to move it. Newton called this a balanced force.

If you look to your left side, you can see a football player kicking the football with his foot. Newton states that the greater mass, the greater acceleration. So, football players are big, strong, built tough. They are also probably pretty heavy. So when they kick the football, the football goes very far. But, say a fifth grader girl kicked a football. It would be driven very slightly into the air.

Another example of action and reaction.

Another example of Newton's third law is: imagine you are on your skateboard, and are rolling very fast. The friction of the sidewalk is the equal reaction. Your skateboard is the action. So you are rolling smoothly, since the friction stops you from rolling forward forever.

Law 3

I hope you enjoyed and understood my interpretation of Isaac Newton's laws of motion. Maybe with this booklet you will understand and come to cherish Newton's laws and instead of getting a C+ get an A+ in science. Perhaps you had a fun time reading this booklet, maybe you didn't, I just hope you now respect Isaac Newton and all he did. Thank you for reading this.

The action and reaction of Newton's third law.

Isaac Newton's third law of motion states that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Newton means that (here's an example,) that if you shoot a gun, the power of the gun thrusts you back. That is a opposite reaction. The gun is too powerful for you to hold it down from thrusting you back.

Hi, my name is Cosette Noel Klotz, and I am in fifth grade. My favorite color is orange, and my favorite animal is a killer whale. Here are some of my hobbies. I like to play football and I like to dance. I love to listen to the Beatles, Beach Boys, Mozart, and Elvis Presley. My favorite subjects in school are Reading, Science, Art, Music, Band, and Social Studies. I have my mom and dad, my three brothers, my baby sister, and my two cats. I hope to be an author and a musician someday, and to own a farm and orchard. I hope you liked my pictures, examples, and paragraphs about Newton's laws of motion. Thank you for reading it.
