## Isaac Newton's Book the Principia A book in which he wrote down his three laws of motion as well as his mathematical description of gravity. | ## Infinitesimal Calculus The mathematical study of differential and integral calculus. | ## The Universal Law of Gravity An equation that Newton made that states that any two bodies in the universe attract each other with a force that is equal to the quotient of the distance between them squared and the product of their masses. More simply put mass1 x mass2 over distance squared=gravity |

## Isaac Newton´s Quotes

*¨I can calculate the motion of heavenly bodies, but not the madness of people.¨**¨To every action there is always an opposed and equal reaction.¨**¨To myself I am only a child playing on the beach, while the vast oceans of truth lie undiscovered before me.¨**¨If I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants.¨**¨Truth is ever to be found in simplicity , and not in the multiplicity and confusion of things.¨**¨If I am anything, which I highly doubt, I have made myself so by hard work.¨*
