Transcript of Sir Isaac Newton

Newton Isaac Newton discovered that white light... is made up of the colors of the rainbow born December 25, 1642 in Lincolnshire,

nearly a full year
after Galileo died "What we know is a drop, Universal Law of Gravitation
book written by Newton
described reflection and refraction of light Issac Newton invented the first reflecting telescope.
Invented infinitesimal calculus to prove how gravity affects the shapes of planets' orbits
thought to be Newton's favorite area of study

wrote a lot about it but nothing was published

easy to see present-day theories he was developing Isaac Newton died in his sleep on March 20, 1727 in London, England. He was 84 years old. Optiks what we don't know is an ocean." Wrote "The Principia" gravity holds the planets in orbit around the Sun Christian Theology Many of Newton's religious idas were rejected by the church because he believed certain parts of many different religions believed in the literal translation of the Bible predicted Jesus would return in the 1990s Mathematician Biography A Man of Many Talents Alchemy - Isaac Newton Birth Cause of Death: mercury poisoning from
work with alchemy described three laws of motion

explained movement of planets

described gravity's universal effects Invented
Reflecting Telescope dad died before he was born

born premature and was smaller than most boys his age A Hard Childhood Education
He then moved to Cambridge to go to Trinity College, where he got his master's degree Titles note: Newton's breakthroughs with gravity were not triggered by a falling apple.
Fellow of the Royal Society
of London Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge University Sir Isaac Newton was knighted by Queen Anne in 1705 for his scientific achievements mom pulled Isaac out of school at 17 to be a farmer

Isaac purposely failed at farming, so his mom let him go back to school used to find slope of curve, area below curve, maxima and minima Overview mom remarried when he was 3, Newton went to live with his grandma

hated his stepdad Newton Positive Impact on Society Isaac Newton was a scientist with an unparalleled
passion for knowledge whose legacy lives through his scientific advancements, proclamation of unconventional religious beliefs, and his academic writings. Known as the "father of modern science," Isaac Newton redefined traditional beliefs about the universe as a whole not only with his discoveries, but with his methods as well. Isaac Newton's ideas have aided scientists throughout the centuries with their understanding of physics, calculus, and theology. Deemed by many as one of the most influential scientists throughout history, Isaac Newton changed the world for the better. Marriage? Isaac Newton never married and had no children. His intense focus on science left little time for romance.
