    • Isaac Newton
    • Was a…
      Physicist
      Mathematician
      Astronomer
      Unorthodox Christian
      Natural Philosopher
      Alchemist
      Theologian
    • Early Upbringing
      Born on January 4, 1643
      Born in England
      For a period of time lived with his maternal grandparents
      Isaac Newton had a bad relationship with his mother and stepfather
      From the age of 12 to 17 he attended King's School
    • Later Years
      June 1661 Isaac was admitted to Trinity College
      Created the binomial theorem, that later turned into infinitesimal calculus
      Attained his degree in the year August 1665
      His college temporarily closed down due to the Great Plague
      Studied at home for two years where his most important discoveries took place
    • Major Discoveries
      Gravity
      Infinitesimal Calculus
      Reflecting Telescope
      Universal Gravitation
      Three Laws of Motion
      Spectrum of White Light
    • 3 Laws of Motion
      1st law- Every object in a state of rest or uniform motion remains in that state unless an external force is applied to it
      2nd law- The rate of change of momentum of an object is directly proportional to force acting on it
      3rd law- For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction
    • Major Books
      Opticks- Isaac Newton’s theory of light
      Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica- regarding universal gravitation, 3 laws of motion, and the distinction between Kepler’s laws of planetary motion and gravity, and with the use of calculus
    • Significance of Isaac Newton’s Discoveries
      Helped us better understand gravity and how it works.
      The addition of calculus helped from an educational standpoint.
      Mirrored lens produced a clear image through a telescope
      Laws of motion helped understand the action of forces being applied to an object, and what are the reactions to the forces being applied to the object.
    • The End
