Isaac Newton was a physicist, philosopher, mathematician, a scientist, and also an astronomer. He is one of the most famous scientist in history, he is most famous for his law of gravitation. Isaac was one of the scientist that played a huge role in the scientific revolution in the 17th century. Newton came up with many ideas such as the principles of modern physics, law of gravitation, calculus, and optic motions. Isaac 's childhood wasn’t all that great before he came up with all these ideas.
Isaac Newton was born on January 4, 1643 in Woolsthorpe, England. Newton 's father had died 3 months before he was born. At age 12, Newton was reunited with his mother after her second husband died. Isaac attended the King 's School in Grantham. Isaac

Isaac was very distressed after the death of his mother, she encouraged him to become the man he was. His mother was very hard working , but she didn’t poor. After the plague, Newton went back to school and made plenty of fortunes. He received his Masters of Art degree in 1669 before he reached age 27. But that 's not all the Newton went through in his lifetime.
Lastly, another major event was when he published “Principia”. It was widely regarded as one of the most important works in both science of physics and in applied mathematics during the Scientific Revolution. The work underlies much of the technological and scientific advances from the Industrial Revolution. In the Principia it laid out in mathematical terms the principles of time, force, and motion. This was a huge part in life, because without it no one would have remember what Newton had created.
Newton died on March 31, 1727 in London, England. Newton died the most famous man in England. He left a small fortune behind for his will and also gave some of his fortune to charity. He died unmarried, and he suffered from incontinence. Later he fell ill with gout, and also caught hemorrhoids. And on March 19, 1727 he black out and never regained

    To this day, Sir Isaac Newton is remembered as one of the greatest minds of, not only the 17th century, but to ever walk this Earth. His intuition ranged from the subjects of physics and mathematics. From his laws of motion to his law of conservation of momentum, he truly revolutionized the science of his day. He is responsible for publishing one of the most acclaimed works known to science. He was remembered for all the amazing things that he was able to accomplish, but there were some cowardly acts done by Newton that people never knew about.…

    Perhaps his most famous and well-known discovery is his theory on gravity. He discusses gravity and his laws of motion in Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica, and his findings have inspired physics scholars since and become an integral part of learning any physics. In his letter to Newton, David Gregory also commemorates Newton’s physics discoveries, stating that he admires Newton’s ‘application…to the physicks [sic].’ Gregory was also an astronomer, a subject usually associated with physics, so he not only admired Newton’s work in math but his other field of study. Mac Laurin also studied astronomy, so he viewed Newton similarly to Gregory. James Gregory was also inspired by Newton, as he taught Newtonian physics at the University of Edinburgh.…

    Sir Isaac Newton was an English mathematician and physicist who lived from 1643 to 1727. Newton grew up with his grandmother, whereas his father passed away shortly before he was born and his mother remarried a man he did not approve of. Newton attended Trinity College in Cambridge and worked as a servant at the university until he was awarded a scholarship because he could not afford the tuition fees. In 1666, the university was temporarily closed due to an extremely contagious, mortal disease and Newton was forced to return home. It was surprisingly during this time, when he was away from school, that he started to pursue his own ideas on physics.…

    Abstract Henry Cavendish was a man of extraordinary intelligence but had a crippling social anxiety condition that isolated him from most all human interaction. He was born into a family of English Dukes on both his father and mother’s side and later became one of the wealthiest people in England. He was well educated and attended the best English schools but did not hold any type of formal degree. After college, Henry began following his father’s scientific footsteps. Being a follower of Newtonian philosophy and Newtonian mechanics, he began conducting experiments in gases, electricity and gravity.…

The Scientific Revolution was the beginning of the scientific discoveries that have formed modern science. This period started during the end of the Renaissance and continued throughout the 18 century. Johannes Kepler was a major figure in this period, including the observations mentioned in his books as well as his study on Mars and planetary motion. Although Kepler was a very brilliant man, he didn’t exactly have an easy life.…

    Galileo Galilei was one of the scientist that studied sound during the 1500’s (“sound”). To some people even say he is one of the greatest scientist especially for the topic of sound (“sound”). People claim this because Galileo was able to show the pitch of a sound was calculated by how often sound waves passed (“sound”). Although Galileo Galilei made a great contribution to the understanding of sound he was not the only one to contribute to the discoveries. Leonardo DaVinci was one of those who contributed greatly to these discoveries.…
