Isaac Newton


The Scientific Revolution

Isaac Newton was a physicist and a mathematician. He combined math, motion, and physical observation. He became famous from applying algebra to geometry for scientific equations. Gravity was one of his studies and the planets' orbit.

Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica

Newton published a work called Philosophiae Naturalis Principa Mathematica in 1678. The title means Mathematics Principals of Natural Philosophy. In the work he writes three basic laws of gravity. 1) An object will stat still until force is put upon it. 2) Force equals mass times acceleration 3) There is an opposite reaction for every action.


Newton laws that he created helped him calculate the mass of each planet and the gravitational pull of the moon and the sun to make Earth's tides. He stated that the universe is in balance because of gravity. After Newton died Albert Einstein took over Newtons ideas and edit and span them out in the 20th century.
