  Newton - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The newton (symbol: N) is the SI unit of force.
A newton is the amount of force required to accelerate a mass of one kilogram at a rate of one metre per second squared.
The newton was first used around 1904, but not until 1948 was it officially adopted by the General Conference on Weights and Measures (CGPM) as the name for the MKS unit of force.

Newton could be the poster child of disambiguation, with an almost perfect balance of references to the British guy, the SI unit, and the PDA.
Newton was unsuccessful in the marketplace for two primary reasons: its high price (which went up to $1000 when models 2000 and 2100 were introduced), and its large size (it failed the "pocket test" by not fitting in an average coat, shirt, or pants pocket).
Newton also developed a law of cooling, describing the rate of cooling of objects when exposed to air; the binomial theorem in its entirety; and the principles of conservation of momentum and angular momentum.

Newton's first law of motion predicts the behavior of objects for which all existing forces are balanced.
Newton's second law of motion pertains to the behavior of objects for which all existing forces are not balanced.
The above equation also indicates that a unit of force is equal to a unit of mass times a unit of acceleration.

 History of Newton Hospital
Newton Memorial Hospital traces its origins to 1926, when Thomas E. Murray bequeathed a portion of his estate to "the establishment in Newton of a hospital that would accept persons of all creeds and religious denominations and provide equal privileges and accommodations for all".
In addition, a new, modern obstetrics unit was opened in the Pavilion building, housing 20 postpartum beds and 24 newborn bassinets and construction was begun on a new wing to house a 12-bed Mental Health unit and outpatient facilities.

joule (J)  the SI unit of work or energy, defined to be the work done by a force of one newton acting to move an object through a distance of one meter in the direction in which the force is applied.
Equivalently, since kinetic energy is one half the mass times the square of the velocity, one joule is the kinetic energy of a mass of two kilograms moving at a velocity of 1 m/sec.

 Newton's First Law
In a previous unit of study, the variety of ways by which motion can be described (words, graphs, diagrams, numbers, etc.) was discussed.
Isaac Newton (a 17th century scientist) put forth a variety of laws which explain why objects move (or don't move) as they do.
An object at rest tends to stay at rest and an object in motion tends to stay in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.

Newton's Third Law of Motion states that when two objects interact, they create equal and opposite forces on each other.
Since the force is directed toward the Sun, we might say that the Sun is exerting a force on the planets.
According to Newton's Third Law, the planet must like likewise exert an equal, but opposite force on the Sun.

According to Newton's First Law of Motion (The Law of Inertia), an object at rest will remain at rest until some outside force is applied to it.
According to Newton, if no outside force were acting on the planet, the planet should travel in a straight line.
In the case of the planets, this force (later to be identified as "the force of gravity" by Newton) is directed toward toward the Sun.

The newton is the 1 kg m/s^2, using F = ma, where F is in newtons, m in kg, and a in meters per second squared.
Of course, the importance of the newton was shown by Sir Isaac Newton when he developed his second law, F = ma, which describes the motion of matter beautifully until one gets near the speed of light or near the dimensions of atoms.

The newton is the Standard International (SI) unit of force.
One newton is the force required to cause a mass of one kilogram to accelerate at a rate of one meter per second squared in the absence of other force-producing effects.
In general, force (F) in newtons, mass (m) in kilograms, and acceleration (a) in meters per second squared are related by a formula well known in physics:
