Description


Newton's Principia: The Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy is a seminal work in the field of physics and mathematics. Originally published in 1687, this book is considered one of the most important works in the history of science. In this book, Isaac Newton laid out his three laws of motion, which form the foundation of classical mechanics. He also introduced the concept of universal gravitation, which explains the force that attracts all objects in the universe to one another. The book is divided into three parts. The first part discusses the laws of motion and the principles of mechanics. The second part explores the motion of fluids and the behavior of air resistance. The third and final part is devoted to the study of the solar system and the laws of gravitation.This 1846 edition of the book was translated into English by Andrew Motte and includes additional commentary and explanations by the translator. The book is written in a highly mathematical language and is intended for readers with a strong background in mathematics and physics. However, it remains a landmark work in the history of science and is still studied and referenced by scientists and scholars today.This Is A New Release Of The Original 1846 Edition.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
