ISAAC NEWTON
Name : Steven Austin
Class : 6 Isaac Newton

Isaac Newton was born (according to the Julian calendar in use in England at the time) on Christmas Day, 25 December 1642, at Woolsthorpe Manor in Woolsthorpe-by-Colsterworth, a hamlet in the county of Lincolnshire. He was born three months after the death of his father, a prosperous farmer also named Isaac Newton. Born prematurely, he was a small child; his mother Hannah Ayscough reportedly said that he could have fit inside a quart mug (≈ 1.1 litres). When Newton was three, his mother remarried and went to live with her new husband, the Reverend Barnabus Smith, leaving her son in the care of his maternal grandmother, Margery Ayscough. The young Isaac disliked his stepfather and maintained some enmity towards his mother for marrying him, as revealed by this entry in a list of sins committed up to the age of 19: "Threatening my father and mother Smith to burn them and the house over them." Although it was claimed that he was once engaged, Newton never married. He was an English physicist, mathematician, astronomer, natural philosopher, alchemist and theologian who has been considered by many to be the greatest and most influential scientist who ever lived. Newton described universal gravitation and the three laws of motion. He built the first practical reflecting telescope and developed a theory of colour based on the observation that a prism decomposes white light into the many colours that form the visible spectrum. He also formulated an empirical law of cooling and studied the speed of sound. In mathematics, Newton shares the credit with Gottfried Leibniz for the development of differential and integral calculus. He generalized the binomial theorem to non-integer exponents, developed Newton’s method for approximating the roots of a function, and contributed to the study of power series. Towards the end of his life, Newton took up residence at Cranbury Park, near Winchester with his niece and her...

...Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1727), English mathematician and physicist considered one of the greatest scientists in history, who made important contributions to many fields of science. His discoveries and theories laid the foundation for much of the progress in science since his time. Newton was one of the inventors of the branch of mathematics called calculus (the other was German mathematician Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz). He also solved the mysteries of light and optics, formulated the three laws...

Isaac Newton was a Mathematician and physicist, and one of the founding fathers in the laws of physics. Newton’s achievements in experimental investigation as the founding exemplar has regarded for more than 300 years. His discoveries in physics, mathematics, optics, calculus, gravitation, alchemy and chemistry are still being applied around the world today.
Isaac Newton was born in Woolsthorpe in Lincolnshire. Newton also attended school here. By the age of 18 he entered...

Isaac Newton
Isaac Newton made a multitude of discoveries that are still relevant in today’s academia. Many people have referred to him as one of the most important scientist that has ever lived. He is mostly known by his Theory of Universal Gravity and laws of motion, Newton’s laws, but he also influenced the areas of math and optics. Newton had a passion for alchemy and astrology. Today Newton’s laws of motion and gravity theory are still taught in schools as one of the most...

December 25,1642
Doctors and Nurseries came in the room. Hannah Ayscough is giving birth to a baby named Isaac Newton.” Same as his father” said mother Hannah. Doctor said “born prematurely but he is a special kid, he will make it big. He will be known, and he will do something nobody has ever done”. Mother Hannah asked “why you think that doctor?”. He said “he was born in a special day, today the Gregorian calendar consider it Christmas. Christmas is a special day as...

...Sir Isaac Newton PRS MP (25 December 1642 – 20 March 1727) was an English physicist, mathematician, astronomer, natural philosopher, alchemist and theologian, who has been considered by many to be the greatest and most influential scientist who ever lived.[8] His monograph Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica, published in 1687, laid the foundations for most of classical mechanics. In this work, Newton described universal gravitation and the three laws of motion, which dominated the...

...Throughout his life, Isaac Newton was an English physicist, mathematician, astronomer, natural philosopher, alchemist and theologian. He was one of the greatest scientists of all time. He is famous for many things, including the discovery of Calculus, the Laws of Motions, and the Laws of Gravitation. Many of Newtons ideas are used extensively today as basic knowledge, and much of modern science today is based on the understanding of Newtons laws. It would be hard to imagine life today without...
