Newtonian physics - the system of physics based principally on the dynamics
of Isaac Newton, 1642-1727 (including his famous law of gravitation). The system
was very successful in predicting the behaviour of particles, pendulums,
machines etc up to the end of the 19th Century when the new physics began to
have its impact.
