Breif biography about Isaac Newton

Isaac Newton or as some people call him Sir Isaac Newton was born on January 4th 1643 and was a English physicist and a mathematician. Newton is most famous for law of gravitation. He also developed the principles of modern physics. Isaac Newton also made the laws of motions. First law: "Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it." (Law of inertia) Second law: "Acceleration is produced when a force acts on a mass. The greater the mass the greater amount of force needed." Third law: "for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction"

Discovery/Contribution

Like I said before he created the laws of motion. And is famous for his law of gravitation. "In 1666, Newton began contributing to the field of optics, first by observing that color was a property of light by measuring it through a prism." (Williams, pg. 1, 2014) Newton started the light spectrum and discovered that colors might have to do with the amount of light in space. All of these discoveries about our universe has helped us build a better understanding of it which is definitely a benefit. They make us learn more what our universe is going through and what is happening to it right now. You never know these benefits can lead us to even better discoveries and help make our universe a better place
