He came up with them by thinking deeply and obsessively. Sir Isaac newton was a genius, perhaps the greatest genius the world has ever known. After inventing the eponymous fig-filled pastry-like cookie -- the Fig Newton -- he yearned for more difficult challenges and turned his attention to physics, writing the Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica, a three-volume work published in July, 1687. It contains the statement of Newton's laws of motion and his law of universal gravitation.

What were the names of Isaac Newton's three laws of motion?

Newton's First Law of Motion is referred to as the Law of Inertia. It states that an object in motion will stay in motion unless acted upon by an outside force. The Second Law of Motion is the definition of Force : Force=mass x acceleration. The Third Law of Motion is the Law of Reciprocity. It states that forces come in equal and opposite pairs. "Every action has an equal and opposite reaction"

How did newton come up with the laws?

The answer depends on which laws you are referring to: the laws of motion, universal gravity, cooling, calculus, light (and spectrum).

The phrase is actually "what goes up, must come down" and it is not found in the Torah. This line was said by Sir Isaac Newton in reference to gravity.

What motivated Isaac Newton to do what he did?

Sir Isaac Newton is considered to be one of the most important mathematicians to have ever existed. His theory of gravitational force and his discovery of calculus are some of his most famous achievements. There is a story that says that Isaac Newton was sitting under an apple tree in England, and an apple fell and hit him on his head. Apparently he jumped up and was so happy, because he just realized gravity must exist, because the apple had a force that did not come from anything. This story is said to have motivated him to discover the gravitation force theory.
