Overview

What Are Newton's Laws of Motion? by Crabtree

Shaping Modern Science explores some of the greatest scientific discoveries of our time and the people and events behind them. Fascinating stories reveal the difficulties scientists faced as they challenged existing beliefs and worked to advance scientific understanding.

Sir Isaac Newton once said he could see clearly how motion worked because he stood "on the shoulders of giants." By this, Newton meant that he had expanded on the work of other great scientists, including Galileo and Copernicus, to make his important discovery-three basic laws that govern the way in which objects move. What Are Newton's Laws of Motion? examines how Newton came to his conclusions and describes how his laws are applied in modern science and technology.
