Isaac newton

  1. 1. Isaac Newton <br />
  2. 2. Was a…<br />Physicist <br />Mathematician <br />Astronomer <br />Unorthodox Christian<br />Natural Philosopher<br />Alchemist<br />Theologian<br />
  3. 3. Early Upbringing <br />Born on January 4, 1643<br />Born in England<br />For a period of time lived with his maternal grandparents<br />Isaac Newton had a bad relationship with his mother and stepfather <br />From the age of 12 to 17 he attended King's School<br />
  4. 4. Later Years<br />June 1661 Isaac was admitted to Trinity College<br />Created the binomial theorem, that later turned into infinitesimal calculus <br />Attained his degree in the year August 1665<br />His college temporarily closed down due to the Great Plague <br />Studied at home for two years where his most important discoveries took place<br />
  5. 5. Major Discoveries <br />Gravity<br />Infinitesimal Calculus<br />Reflecting Telescope <br />Universal Gravitation<br />Three Laws of Motion<br />Spectrum of White Light<br />
  6. 6.
  7. 7. 3 Laws of Motion<br />1st law- Every object in a state of rest or uniform motion remains in that state unless an external force is applied to it<br />2nd law- The rate of change of momentum of an object is directly proportional to force acting on it<br />3rd law- For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction<br />
  8. 8. Major Books<br />Opticks- Isaac Newton’s theory of light<br />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 <br />
  9. 9. Significance of Isaac Newton’s Discoveries<br />Helped us better understand gravity and how it works.<br />The addition of calculus helped from an educational standpoint.<br />Mirrored lens produced a clear image through a telescope<br />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. <br />
  10. 10. The End <br />
