We do not do your homework essay for you.

Search for the material yourself.

For a good start, you might want to try Wikipedia first, then at least you'll know what search terms to use when Googling for resources.

Sir Newton was a famous knight who was killed by a Roman soldier after Newton became angry with the soldier, who had ruined his drawings of integrals in the sand. He is best known for inventing gravity, and a delicious mass-market pastry, after being hit in the head with an apple.

he only (in many cases) copy-paste formulae known by others , in fact the 'Gravitation law' it is just a consequence of F=m.a and Kepler`s second Law T2=kr3

The first thing you need to do, moela, is pay no attention to CRGreathouse and mhill. I suspect they are trying to tell you that it is far better to do your own work rather than just copy what someone here says!
