Isaac Newton and the Law of GravityBy: Jasleen Chahal
Why did the apple fall from the tree?
I wonder if the same force that is that puled that apple down from the tree, was also tugging on the moon?
The moon is far, so the forces is weaker their. Its just strong enough to bend the moon's motion into nearly circular path around Earth.
The scientist states a question or problem.
1. Objects in motion, tend to stay in motion and objects at rest tend to stay at rest unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.2. Force equals mass times acceleration 3. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction
The scientist forms a hypothesis.
The law of gravity is a simple formula. All physical objects have a force of attraction between them.
The scientist conducts an experiment to test the hypothesis.
The scientist measures the data, produced by the experiment and record the results.
The scientist analyzes the data to determined whether the hypothesis is correct.
