Newton's Laws of Motion

Lecture no. 5 from the course: The Joy of Science

Newton's Laws of Motion

Taught by Professor Robert M. Hazen | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

Isaac Newton built on the works of Kepler and Galileo by showing that motion everywhere obeys a single set of mathematical laws. During a rural sojourn in 1665–66, he formed many of his major contributions, including calculus, some basic laws of optics, the three laws of motion, and the law of gravity.
