The Man that Created the Laws of Motion
Sir Isaac Newton, the man that helped people figure out why things move and how they move, had a very interesting life. In the beginning of his early life, he dealt with hardships, and progressed to be an extremely inspiring man later in his life. In college he had many breakthroughs with his scientific works, including the laws of physics that we still use today. His life has answered many of people’s scientific questions that are still being asked today in physics’ classrooms all around the world. His discoveries have helped people for over 350 years to know and understand why things move the way they move, and stop the way they stop. Newton’s works comprise of the Principia and many other important publishing’s that he started when he was just in college. Newton’s life was full of discoveries, from his life as a minor to the years later in his life when he became an important individual in the government and changed the world, as we know it today.
Sir Isaac Newton was born on January 4, 1643 in the hamlet of Woolsthorpe, England. He was the only son of a prosperous farmer whose name was also Isaac Newton. Unfortunately his father passed away about 3 months before he was even born. Newton was a premature baby and was not expected to survive. His mother, Hannah Ayscough, remarried when he was 3 and left him to his grandmother. This action made him very insecure later in life (“Isaac”). At the age of 12 he was reunited with his

mother after her second husband died. She brought three children with her as well. He was soon enrolled at the King’s School where he learned how to speak Latin but failed to learn mathematics. Newton was taken out of school and sent to Woolsthorpe-by-
Colesterworth where his mother hoped he would learn to become a promising farmer. The only thing was, Isaac hated farming (“Isaac”). One of his old professors convinced Newton’s mother to send him back to King’s School so that he could finish his education. After returning to school, Newton became the top student in his class, and found new hobbies such has building sundials and windmill models (Brewster).
At first his mother wouldn’t let him go to college but Newton’s uncle, a college graduate himself, convinced her. He went to the University of Cambridge’s Trinity College where he was a subsizar, which means he was paying his way through school. During his first three years of college he just learned standard studies but was really interested in the more advanced stuff. After these few years, Newton earned a scholarship that would provide four more years of schooling, until he would get his M.A. A lot of the philosophers he learned from were very famous, such as Aristotle, Descartes, and Galileo (“Isaac”). His notes that he took during this time are called the “Quaestiones Quaedam Philosophicae,” and they provided the framework for the Scientific...

For an object along an elliptical orbit to sweep out the area at a uniform rate, the object moves quicker when the radius vector is short
