sir Issac newton .. explorer of universe.

Early in Christmas in 1642, a piteously weak baby was born at a farm house in the county of Lincoln, England. His head was so weak on his shoulders that it had to be supported by a special leather collar, who knew the collar contained the finest scientific brain the world had ever known. When the baby grew up, he was knighted, won many honours and made a fortune, his name was Issac Newton There was nothing in the ancestry of the child to indicate genius. His father died at the age of 37, a few weeks before he was born His mother was no different from any of her farm neighbours in the village of Woolsthrope In later years, specialists in tracing family histories were unable to discover any reasons to his gifts These gifts were shown in appearing as a school boy, Newton was often at or near the bottom of his class until the day he beat to complete his triumph by proving himself the better scholar Nothing has increased studious an uncle suggested that he should be given higher education and obtained young Issac’s admission to Trinity college, Cambridge. When he was just 19, Isaac Borrow, his professor of Mathematics, considered him “a man of quite exceptional ability The Great Plague in 1665-66 interrupted Newton’s education and left a serious effect on his career, Cambridge University was closed, and Newton, then 23, returned to Woolsthrope to Mediate These meditations laid the ground work for all his subsequent dreams Wise man had believed that sun stars and planets possessed heavenly qualities quite unlike anything on earth To suppose this was e unthinkable until Newton came along e The Story of Apple It is said that the sight of a falling apple n caused Newton to ask himself if the force that drew the apple to the earth might not also be the force that kept the moon in its orbit He went to work on the problem, although, his he result was not published for next twenty years me he had worked out the law of both motions and is universal gravitation by the time when he was m 24. He also invented a new mathematical n system to prove his theories known as Calculus Professor of Mathematics ol Newton said nothing about any of his of Woolsthrope discoveries at the time. In 1667, is he was made Professor of Mathematics, a position he was to hold for 30 years Laws of Newton All his predecessors believed that some n continuous force was required to keep the of planets moving in their orbits, In Principia e Newton said that a body in motion would continue to travel in a straight line forever ed unless some force was applied to stop it. The on planets move in circular paths round the sun because of its gravitational force, since there is e friction (Resistance) in space. Planetary Movement In ‘Principia’, Newton clarified all which e he had discovered about the movements of the planets and their satellites Written in Lann, the in universal language of science at that time, beh “Principia consists mainly of mathematical pas formulae and equations it was the principal kin guide to the world’s scientific thought The Colours of Light: During eighteen months stay at gra Woolsthrope, Newton plunged into an amazing orb verity of other studies He discovered the laws gra of the tides. By a series of brilliant expenments ca with prism, bought at a country fair, he proved that white light is compressed of all the colours the in the spectrum He found that each colour is me, behind its own characteristc degree when cal passed through a prism. He also invented a new pal kind of telescope. Law of Gravity: Newton developed and explored his law of at gravity. He established rules for calculating the ing orbits of comets. He proved that the ws gravitational force of the moon and the sun nts cause tides in the oceans of the earth. In 85 years, Isaac Newton died, and went urs to his last rest in West minister Abbey.
