## newton

(N) [noo´ton]
the SI unit of force, being that when applied in a vacuum to a body having a mass of 1 kilogram accelerates it at the rate of 1 meter per second squared.

(nū'tŏn),

## new·ton (N),

(nū'tŏn),
Derived unit of force in the SI, expressed as meters-kilograms per second squared (m·kg s-2); equivalent to 105 dynes in the CGS system.

## newton

/new·ton/ (N) (noo´ton) the SI unit of force; that when applied in a vacuum to a body having a mass of 1 kilogram accelerates it at the rate of 1 meter per second squared.

## newton

[n(y)o̅o̅′tən]
Etymology: Isaac Newton, English scientist, 1642-1727
a unit of force in the SI system that imparts an acceleration to 1 kilogram of mass of 1 meter per second per second.

## new·ton

(nū'tŏn)
Derived unit of force in the SI system, expressed as meters-kilograms per second squared (m·kg·s-2); equivalent to 105 dynes in the CGS system.
[Sir Isaac Newton]

## newton

The unit of force required to accelerate a mass of 1 kg by 1 m per second per second. 1 N is equal to 100 000 dynes. (Sir Isaac Newton, 1642–1727, English mathematician, alchemist and physicist).

## Newton,

Sir Isaac, English physicist, 1642-1727.
newton - derived unit of force in the SI system.
Newton disk - a disk on which there are seven colored sectors, which, when rapidly rotated, appear white.
Newton law - the attractive force between any two bodies is proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between their centers. Synonym(s): law of gravitation
Newton rings - colored rings on thin surfaces.
newtonian aberration - the difference in focus or magnification of an image arising because of a difference in the refraction of different wavelengths composing white light. Synonym(s): chromatic aberration
newtonian constant of gravitation - a universal constant relating the gravitational force, attracting two masses toward each other when they are separated by a distance.
newtonian flow - the type of flow characteristic of a newtonian fluid.
newtonian fluid - a fluid in which flow and rate of shear are always proportional to the applied stress.
newtonian viscosity - the viscosity characteristics of a newtonian fluid.

## newton

; N metric unit of force; i.e. force acting on 1-kg body to cause it to accelerate at 1 metre per second (1m/s)

## newton

the SI unit of force; the force that, when acting continuously upon a mass of 1 kilogram, will impart to it an acceleration of 1 meter per second squared. Symbol N.

The eMate took over this role and would tell Sarah which of her stories were good, which ones needed revisions, and which ones should be deleted.
School was not the only environment in which Sarah mediated with the eMate.
How did the relationship between the eMate and Sarah facilitate this growth?
Sarah was using the eMate as a transitional object to mediate between her internal reality and the reality that existed in the classroom and at home.
In other words, it is probable that she was using the eMate much like a blanket, doll, or imaginary friend.
Coming to terms with how Sarah mediated through and with the eMate also helped the teachers and researchers better comprehend her emotional development and how to foster her emotional and social growth in the classroom.
