Why is Sir Isaac Newton the Greatest Briton of all Time?

Why pick a scientist over someone who has contributed to any other field of endeavour? Look at the evidence: here is a person who discovered the universal law of why “what goes up must come down”, the explanation of the colours of a rainbow; and a method of calculation with applications in far reaching areas… View Article

Sliding beaker investigation

In this investigation I will be finding out what force will push a beaker along a flat surface the best. The factors which could affect my investigation are: The surface that the beaker is on – if the surface is rough it could slow the beaker down, whereas if the surface is smooth it could… View Article

Checking Newton

In this experiment I will make measurements on a two – pulley system and use them to check Newton’s 2nd law:’The rate of momentum of a body Is directly proportional to the external, Resultant force acting upon it. The change in momentum takes place in the Direction of that force. The apparatus is set up as shown in… View Article

Newton raphson

I will look on the graph of function y=(x) and y=((6×3-1)/4)0. 2. Below I show you that graph. The x-coordinates of the three points where these graphs intersect are the roots of the original equation. I will perform the iteration using a starting value of x0 =-2 and attempt to find the root in the… View Article

Newton’s Third Law of Motion

Introduction – The understanding of the physical sciences and the law governing it is not complete without the understanding of the different physical laws provided by Isaac Newton, whose contribution to the field of science is very important and crucial in the development of the human understanding of the physical forces governing the way of… View Article

Scientific knowledge

Absolute truth and critical thinking are not two mutually exclusive concepts. In fact it can be said that the ultimate quest of critical thinking is to arrive at the ultimate truth. Being a critical thinker, one is often accustomed to challenging conventional wisdom. For a critical thinker, it may seem that there is no such… View Article
