- How did Newton discover his second law? 10 answers
Is there a paper or a book that conceptually 'discover' the Newton's famous formula?
I've been thinking about this equation, and I really don't know it for sure.
Did Newton empirically noticed that when we apply an acceleration to a body, then the accelerationon the body that has contact with it, will be proportional either to the mass or to the acceleration? Then, he simply called it 'force'?
OMG i'm so confused :c I can understand differential equations, integrals, and so, but I can't understand, from scratch, how to build up Newton's laws in my mind. I need good papers or books.
