Storyboard Text

  • Sir Isaac Newton discovered gravity around 1665 while he was drinking tea and observed an apple falling from a tree. Newton deduced that the force that caused the apple to fall to the ground also is the same force that causes the moon to orbit the earth
  • Wow I wonder how motion really works...?
  • Newton developed the three laws of motion which form the basic principles of modern physics. His discovery of calculus led the way to more powerful methods of solving mathematical problems later know as calculus.
  • To find the speed of sound Newton used a small pendulum to measure the amount of time the echo took. This method was much more accurate than any 17th-century clock, but was cumbersome and finicky.Newton used the equation T = 2 PI SQRT (L/g) to calculate the speed of sound.
  • Calculus was developed independently by both Isaac Newton and Gottfried Leibniz during the later part of the 1600s. For Newton, calculus was primarily a tool he needed for explaining the motion of the planets.
  • Newton performed an experiment using a glass prism. For the experiment he placed a glass prism in front of a beam of light projected through a tiny hole in a window shade. He soon realized he discovered there was a color spectrum!
  • Now in the modern day Sir Isaac Newton has not only shaped our theory's on the universe, but given us in site on the creation of it. We also have extensive knowledge on ; the speed of sounds, the color spectrum, the three major laws of motion, and a huge understanding of calculus! His overall effect has shaped our understanding of the world, this is why he deserves to be recognized as a world class scientist and mathematician in the hall of fame!
