Transcript of Isaac Newton Cardenal

There is a popular story that supposedly begins when Isaac Newton noticed an apple falling from a tree. This got him thinking about why apples, and everything else, stayed on the ground instead of floating away. His answer: THE LAW OF GRAVITY.

Newton impacted the Renaissance in a very profound way. 17th and 18th Century.
He changed the old ways of thinking due to his revolutionary discoveries such as the laws of gravity and the spectrum of light.
Newton challenged the fact that the sun rotated around the Earth with his invention of the reflecting telescope. It was something the Catholic Church didn't like at all.

The Light Spectrum
Newton is also known for his discovery of the Light Spectrum.
He discovered that white light contained the spectrum in a heterogeneous fashion.
Background Info: What?
Isaac Newton was born on January 4th, 1643 in Lincolnshire, England.
Newton made many scientific breakthroughs in optics, motion, and mathematics. With this new information, Newton developed the principles of modern physics.
On March 31, 1727, Newton died, aged 84, in London.
During his later education, Newton attended the University of Cambridge's Trinity College. Here, he received his master of arts degree, and later carried on to become a professor
By 1666, Newton had formed his famous three laws of motion:
- An object will remain in a state of inertia unless acted upon by force.
- The relationship between acceleration and applied force is F = ma.
- For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction
