Given what you're asking about, I'm guessing you've got more on your mind. Maybe this will help: what exactly do mean by "prove"? What do you understand "prove" to mean?how can you prove — Fernando Rios
I would like to know how can you prove these laws, but not using devices that use the the same laws. — Fernando Rios
Don't use a chronometer. Use a ruler, a watch, a spring, and a weight. Kids do this in early high school. — StreetlightX

Let's not get too technical. The problem for the OP is how an instrument that is Newtonian can ever prove that some other event is NOT Newtonian in nature. If I only have red paint, whatever I paint will surely be red.
A better analogy is the biased judge adjudicating a case. The trial wouldn't be fair. — TheMadFool

There are no 'instruments which are Newtonian'. — StreetlightX
Your post was great but I don't think it would've satisfied the OP who said: — TheMadFool
As distinct from what? Instruments which don't follow Newtons laws? Like you have a choice? What are you talking about? — StreetlightX
Trash, again — StreetlightX

Can you prove they are consequences of other math? Yes. I think you can get all the basic laws from Hamiltonian/Lagrangian mechanics. — fdrake
Get involved in philosophical discussions about knowledge, truth, language, consciousness, science, politics, religion, logic and mathematics, art, history, and lots more. No ads, no clutter, and very little agreement — just fascinating conversations.
