Third Law of Motion by Isaac Newton
"For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction."
Theory of Relativity
Einstein developed this theory that states the laws of physics are the same everywhere. It can be used to predict everything from the existence of black holes, to light bending due to gravity, to the behavior of planets within their orbit.
Formula developed by Einstein - Energy equals Mass times the Speed of Light Squared (186,000 miles per second - Speed of Light)
