Complete, Unabridged Guide to Isaac Newton. Get the information you need--fast! This comprehensive guide offers a thorough view of key knowledge and detailed insight. It's all you need. Here's part of the content - you would like to know it all? Delve into this book today!..... : Newton and Hooke had brief exchanges in 1679-80, when Hooke, appointed to manage the Royal Society's correspondence, opened up a correspondence intended to elicit contributions from Newton to Royal Society transactions, which had the effect of stimulating Newton to work out a proof that the elliptical form of planetary orbits would result from a centripetal force inversely proportional to the square of the radius vector (see Newton's law of universal gravitation - History and De motu corporum in gyrum). ... In the same work, Newton presented a calculus-like method of geometrical analysis by 'first and last ratios', gave the first analytical determination (based on Boyle's law) of the speed of sound in air, inferred the oblateness of the spheroidal figure of the Earth, accounted for the precession of the equinoxes as a result of the Moon's gravitational attraction on the Earth's oblateness, initiated the gravitational study of the irregularities in the motion of the moon, provided a theory for the determination of the orbits of comets, and much more. ...For Newton, it was not precisely the centre of the Sun or any other body that could be considered at rest, but rather the common centre of gravity of the Earth, the Sun and all the Planets is to be esteem'd the Centre of the World, and this centre of gravity either is at rest or moves uniformly forward in a right line (Newton adopted the at rest alternative in view of common consent that the centre, wherever it was, was at rest). ...Although it has been said that the apple story is a myth and that he did not arrive at his theory of gravity in any single moment, acquaintances of Newton (such as William Stukeley, whose manuscript account, published in 1752, has been made available by the Royal Society) do in fact confirm the incident, though not the cartoon version that the apple actually hit Newton's head. There is absolutely nothing that isn't thoroughly covered in the book. It is straightforward, and does an excellent job of explaining all about Isaac Newton in key topics and material. There is no reason to invest in any other materials to learn about Isaac Newton. You'll understand it all.Inside the Guide: Isaac Newton, Early life of Isaac Newton, Diffraction, Deism, De motu corporum in gyrum, De analysi per aequationes numero terminorum infinitas, De Motu (Berkeley's essay), Daniel Bernoulli, Cranbury Park, Corpuscularianism, Continuum mechanics, Classical mechanics, Chromatic aberration, Charles Montagu, 1st Earl of Halifax, Charles II of England, Centripetal force, Centrifugal force, Celestial mechanics, Catherine Barton, Cambridge University Press, Cambridge University Botanic Garden, Cambridge University (UK Parliament constituency), Boyle's law, Binomial theorem, Binomial series, Bible code, Benjamin Pulleyn, Banknotes of the pound sterling, Astronomy, Arthur Annesley, 5th Earl of Anglesey, Arithmetica Universalis, Arianism, Anthony Hammond, Analytical mechanics, Analytical dynamics, An Historical Account of Two Notable Corruptions of Scripture, Alchemy, Albert Einstein, Age of Enlightenment, Action at a distance (physics)
