  • The Contribution of Isaac Newton and Galileo Galilee to Scientific Knowledge and How These Contributions Have Impacted on Today’s Society.

    Sir Isaac Newton explained the workings of the universe through his laws of motion and gravitation. He used three laws to explain the way objects move when an unbalanced force acts on them. These are called Newton’s law. The first law which is known as Inertia, states that an object in rest will remain...
