Sir Isaac Newton

Sir Isaac Newton
Born January 4, 1643 in Lincolnshire England, died March 31, 1727 in
He was schooled at Cambridge
Is considered possibly one of the greatest scientists who ever lived
He described universal gravitation through his three laws of motion
He invented the first reflecting telescope
In the field of mathematics he helped create calculus as well as contributing
to the study of the power series
His work on universal gravitation has been set in stone and it still used today
in modern astronomy
All his work was and still is being accepted by the world as correct and
effective in the field of math and science
His work has paved the way for further scientists to make more discoveries
and continue to make breakthroughs
His three laws of motion: 1. Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to
remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it. 2. The
relationship between an object's mass m, its acceleration a, and the applied
force F is F = ma. Acceleration and force are vectors (as indicated by their
symbols being displayed in slant bold font); in this law the direction of the
force vector is the same as the direction of the acceleration vector. 3. For
every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
Calculus is a widely used math that can be utilized for many different
the Reflective telescope has been modified and transformed into a machine
that can see planets and stars from unimaginable distances.
