Isaac Newotn was born on Christmas Day, 1642, at Woolsthorpe, a village in Southwestern Lincolnshire, England. Sadly his father died 3 months before he was born. When he was 3 years old his mother left him and his grandmother for a man and moved away. Newton was educated at The King's School, Grantham. He ended up being removed from that school and later joined Woolsthorpe-by-Colsterworth. The master at King's School persuaded hsi mother so that he could come back and complete his education.
In 1665 Isaac came home from trinity college because of the Great Plague. When he was sitting outside of his house one day he saw an apple drop from an apple tree. This made him come up with a theory of gravity.
What just happened?
In 1687 Isaac Published his most acclaimed work. Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica (Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy). After he published his book it was named the most influential book on physics. In 1705, he was knighted by Queen Anne of England, making him Sir Isaac Newton.
I love your book!
Besides his work on universal gravitation, 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.
Newton laid the blueprints for his three laws of motion, still recited by physics students, in 1666. Newton's wide range of discoveries, from his theories of optics to his groundbreaking work on the laws of motion and gravity, formed the basis for modern physics.
Newton actually studied for a degree in law He remained single throughout his life. After from a brief flirtation in his teenage years, he was too absorbed in his studies for romance Isaac Newton became known in the scientific community through his refractive telescope – a big improvement on existing telescopes.
