The Big Picture Interplay between matter and energy over all scales! Luckily, just a few physical laws govern the movements of everything, from atoms to galaxies. Our understanding started with Copernican Revolution, Galileo & Kepler ... but it was Newton who put all the pieces together . .

Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1727) Generally regarded as the greatest scientist ever Studied light, gravity, motion Newtonian physics dominated the world of physics until Einstein Invented calculus to solve a different problem Had a somewhat bizzare life not that long ago!

True Genius Starting with careful experiments, Newton deduced three remarkably simple Laws of Motion for ordinary objects on Earth. Realized physical laws that work on Earth are Universal. Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation explains the motions of the planets. Isaac Newton (1642-1727)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
