Newton's Laws of Motion

Updated on August 10, 2017

Isaac Newton was English born
in sixteen and forty three...
the year that Galileo died,
Young Master Isaac came to be.

Math and science were his loves
with astronomy pursuits...
Isaac was a bright young lad,
whose curiosity bore great fruits.

He went to school and did excel,
as an academic, fine,
craving understanding
and sweet knowledge as if wine.

Fascinated by mere movement
in the daily, temporal realm,
his ideas took the ship by storm
where he, then, assumed the helm.

His theories revolutionized
the scientific notion
when he wrote the famous three divine
Newton's Laws of Motion.

He so impressed the world at large
with his most evolving vision
that dubbing him a royal knight
was the fair Queen Anne's decision.

Now, here are Newton's Motion Laws,
There are but only three...
the "law of inertia" is the first
of Isaac's law decree...

which says an object has a mind
to do what it will do...
continuing until a force
will alter, thus, it's view.

This is simplified, of course,
but is the basic thought
behind the law of inertia
that Newton's theory taught.

The second law that Newton wrote
was the formula for force
exerted on an object that
would move it down a course.

Mass and acceleration
when multiplied, will yield
the force required to move a rock
across the farmer's field.

Newton's third and final law,
perhaps the best of all...
involves the law of equals
for every rise, there is a fall.

Every little action has
a counterpart, a twin...
which is equal and yet opposite
to its re-actionary din.

Sir Isaac Newton changed the world
with these three little tools,
changed the game of science,
by defining simple rules.

The world we know today would be
a very different place
without his Laws of Motion,
Sir Isaac Newton's coup de grace!

      What a brilliant complex beautifully formulated orgasmic mix of words. Ok that's a bit over the top, but i love this! It is bloody brilliant! Thanks, i'm now a happy chappy.

      Hey Gus! Lovely to see you again...yes a little physics lesson in rhyme is good for the brain, huh? lol...Its funny you mention "fig newtons" cause I thought about them while I was writing this little poem! Hope all is well with Caveman Sam and Manny the Mastadon, too! Hugs!

      Howdy tnderhrt23 - First of all, let me tell you that this was a great article and caused lots of learning over here. But you left out Newton's greatest accomplishment, much to my surprise.

      To wit, it was his invention of that little rectangular cookie, the one with the fig preserve in its middle.

      Gus :-)))

      Hi Ruby, I am not a nurse...started nursing program three times to discover that being a nurse was my mom's dream, not mine. I worked as a nurses assistant for 20 years on a surgical floor, which was my forte...I have just enough knowledge to be dangerous! lol

      Thanks for your read and comment, Ruby! This poem is along the lines of Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow, a fun little history lesson, was the intent. Hugs!

      Young children in kindergarten learn through song and verse and I thought this would be a wonderful way to teach older students who get turned off memorizing formulae. I imagine a book of poems for students of Physics by tnderhrt! It would be a best seller. You are a very talented and creative person and what you have created here is the potential to revolutionise the teaching of core elements not just in Science but so many other subjects. Think about it. Voted up and awesome.

      Ahh Will, you crack me up! I am so glad you are the first responder on the scene here! I have been working on this little piece for the past few hours, and finally got er done. Years ago, when I was in college, I took conceptual Physics for nursing students because, naturally, I was a nursing student and discovered that I loved it. Do I weld, no, not yet!!! lol, but I solder, does that count???

      O yeah and btw...have always wanted to sculpt...that is on my bucket You are a gem, my friend! Hugs to you!

      And so another side yet to our divine Ms. Tender.

      How did you know that I totally love this stuff?

      I believe it's time for a few more Newtonian laws, where the common man and woman can build a new future based on simple notions of initiative and perseverance, much like Newton did.

      Love your stuff, my friend. What next, do you weld too?

      Ohm's law perhaps? Quantum physics in your spare time maybe? At this point, I wouldn't be surprised.

      Your unwavering, and committed (and to be committed) friend,
