Isaac Newton

  • Was born on December 25, 1642 (by the Julian calendar then in use; or January 4, 1643 by the current Gregorian calendar) in Wools Thorpe, near Grantham in Lincolnshire, England. He was born the same year Galileo died. Newton is clearly the most influential scientist who ever lived. His accomplishments in mathematics, optics, and physics laid the foundations for modern science and revolutionized the world.



  • Newton was educated at trinity college, Cambridge where he lived from 1661 to 1696. During this period he produced the bulk of his work on mathematics. In 1696 were he was appointed Master of the Royal Mint, and moved to London, where he resided until his death newton was well educated he loved the things he was able to do.




  • As a mathematician, Newton invented integral calculus, and jointly with Leibnitz, differential calculus. He also calculated a formula for finding the velocity of sound in a gas which was later corrected by Laplace.



  • Newton made a huge impact on theoretical astronomy. He defined the laws of motion and universal gravitation which he used to predict precisely the motions of stars, and the planets around the sun. Using his discoveries in optics Newton constructed the first reflecting telescope.



  • Newton found science a hodgepodge of isolated facts and laws, capable of describing some phenomena, but predicting only a few. He left it with a unified system of laws that can be applied to an enormous range of physical phenomena, and that can be used to make exact predications. Newton published his works in two books, namely "Optics" and "Principia."



  • Some examples of newton’s work as a mathematician



  • The famous three laws of motion (stated in modernized form): Newton's First Law (also known as the Law of Inertia) states that an object at rest tends to stay at rest and that an object in uniform motion tends to stay in uniform motion unless acted upon by a net external force.




Isaac‘s life as a man was so wonderful to me because he was such an going person who cared about life. And had such a great personality he enjoyed coming up with different math and science problems to bring to life.

Isaac newton had said his goodbyes in Died: 31-Mar-1727 [2]

Location of death: London, England

Cause of death: Illness

Remains: Buried, Westminster Abbey, London, England

And personally I think he has to do with helping society today educational wise.
