Isaac Newton Facts

Sir Isaac Newton was born in Lincolnshire, England in 1643. He studied at Cambridge but from a period of time between 1664 and 1666 he made a series of discoveries. He discovered the law of universal gravitation during this time. This states that and attractive force will occur between any two parts of matter. The force that holds items to the planet is also what holds the moon and other celestial bodies in orbit.rnrnThe three laws of motion were also invented by Newton. The first states that each object in a still motion will stay still until a force is created on it. The second says that the force imposed onto an object is equal to a relationship between the mass of the item and its acceleration. Third there is the law where and equal and opposite reaction occurs with every action.rnrnNewton also discovered the mathematical process of calculus. This would help him to become a professor at Cambridge in 1669 as a Lucasian professor of mathematics. He retired from the university in 1701.rnrnIn 1704 Newton promoted in a book on optics that light is composed of particles and that white light comes from all colors of the light spectrum. Newton continued to work as the president of the Royal Society from then until his death in 1727. He was very religious man, but he never believed in holy trinity and the idea of hell and devils. He loved alchemy and everything that could sparkle ingenuity. He never had apple fallen on his head. He said that he saw apple falling from the tree in the garden when he was staring through his house window.rn
