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.

28, 29] demonstrated that neutrally buoyant rigid spherical particles moved laterally, a phenomenon that would not be observed in Newtonian flows.
It is worth noting that the relative error in the case of the polymer solution displacement is of the same order as that for the Newtonian flow.
The viscoelastic flows tend to be more three-dimensional and more complex than the Newtonian flows.
The Newtonian flow (lower shear rates) promotes coalescence of the discrete PLA droplets, reducing the effective interfacial tension in the blend system as a result.
The streamline patterns for power law fluids were qualitatively similar to low Re Newtonian flow (18), where a single primary vortex fills up the entire cavity.
Instead, an apparent radius was calculated from the analytical Newtonian flow conductance of a tapered segment.
