Storyboard Text

  • Newton was born to his mother of Whoolsthorpe, England, who deserted him at 3 years old, leaving with his grandmother.
  • In actuality, the discovery of so many things we know now to be integral parts of science were developed by Newton on a dare from his friend, and the rest developed from there.
  • Contrary to popular belief, Newton was not hit on the head with an apple inspiring him with the laws of gravity, but instead saw an apple fall from it's branch, and wondered why the apple did not fall at an angle. 
  • The first of Newton's three laws of motion is that of which an object in motion must stay in motion, and an object at rest must stay at rest.  An example of this; the earth's orbit around the sun. And it remains in motion at a constant speed, in a straight line unless acted on by an unbalanced force
  • The second of which being F=ma, f being force, m being mass, and a being acceleration. Force and acceleration both have magnitude and direction, and when that magnitude and direction is applied, the object is accelerating. An example of this; pushing an empty shopping cart is much easier than pushing a full one, because the empty one has less mass. However, if you were taking those same shopping carts down a hill for whatever reason, the full one would take you down with it, while the empty one would be less likely to come plummeting down a hill.
  • The 3rd of Newton's : for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. For example, when you jump, your legs apply a force to the ground, and the ground applies an equal and opposite reaction force that propels you into the air.
