Hello hello hello 🙂
Today’s focus is Sir Isaac Newton… the closest thing the physics world has to a rockstar ❤ I’ve included a summary of Newton’s Laws below and just for fun here are my top 3 fun facts about this telescope-inventing, apple-catching genius.
- Sir Isaacs mum wanted him to be a farmer but he rejected this career path and even failed his ‘farming exams’
- He owned more books on historical subjects than on science
- He actually had a Law Degree and was even elected as a member for Parliament for the university in 1700 – but he only held this post for a year.
Bonus Fact: Newton was known for having a massive set of cranky pants that he was constantly causing drama. He had two nervous breakdowns and after his mum died in 1678 he went into a state of withdrawal – basically locking himself away – and only communicating with the briefest of notes.
Okey dokey so here you go… a brief summary of Newton’s Laws. I included some revisionary material in this summary (dot product, conservation of mechanical energy etc.) but hopefully I should have full summary sheets done up for these topics soon.
And here’s the pdf version 🙂 Newton’s Laws of Motion
If there’s anything you don’t understand or if you would like a simpler summary uploaded (I know this one is pretty maths heavy) drop me a line in the comments 🙂
Happy studying ❤ ❤ ❤
