The telescope prior to newtons discovery was not ideal. the telescope was often out of focus and hard to use, newton solved this problem by using mirrors instead of lens. His original telescope was built himself in 1668, which was six inches long. this newly remolded telescope magnified whatever it focused on by 40 times.
Newton began to notice the problems of the motion of the planets an what kept them in their orbits around the sun, since they had continuous change. So, he invented another part of mathematics, which he called calculus. Calculus allowed Newton to draw tangents to curves, measure lengths of curves, and solve other problems that geometry couldn't solve.
The three laws of motion, the laws explain how the universe works and gives principles of space and time. the first law is Law of inertia: Every object persists in its state of rest or uniform motion in a straight line unless it is compelled to change that state by forces impressed upon it. The second law is Law of acceleration: Force is equal to the change in momentum (mV) per change in time. For a constant mass, force equals mass times acceleration, F = ma. The third law is Law of action and reaction: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
