Newton’s discoveries were not confined to mechanical science. He did his share of electrical experimenting. Although he was not intimately involved with electromagnetism, his thoughts on the properties of gravity, light, and mathematical contributions paved the way for future scientists to be able to express the phenomena in a logical and defined manner.
He is honored in the international system of units under the following entries; 1 Newton; The unit of force which when applied to one kilogram of mass would be accelerated at a rate of one meter per second. 2 Ampere; The current, if maintained in each of two parallel wires separated by one meter in free space, would produce a force between the two wires (due to their magnetic fields) of 2 x 10-7 newton for each meter of length.
