Storyboard Text

  • why did that apple fall on the floor?
  • The same force that pulled the apple to the ground tugging on the moon.
  • If the moon is far away then the force would be weaker to pull something down but a single force explained an apple and bodies moving. Newton called this gravity 
  • The strength of the force depended on the masses of the objects and distance between them. For example, the moon, and earth tugged on each other 
  • In 1687, Newton published a book called " Principia" which presented the laws of gravity. Newtons laws provided physical explanations of what earlier scientists discovered 
  • Newotns laws dramatically changed peoples picture of the universe and some people started to see the universe as a beautiful designed machine
