The Scientific Revolution

Jennifer A 6th period

What was the change?

The scientific revolution was the emergence of modern science during the early modern period, when developments in mathematics, physics, astronomy, biology, medicine, and chemistry. Many of the discoveries that came with the change are still being used and improved on to this day.

Who were the people associated with the change?


Was an English physicist and mathematician. He was also a key role in the scientific revolution. Known to have made one great discovery by defining the laws of motion. Newton came up Newton's 3 laws of motion. His discovery occurred when he saw an apple fall. The 3 laws were:

1.Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it.

2.The relationship between an object's mass m, its acceleration a, and the applied force F is F = ma. Acceleration and force are vectors (as indicated by their symbols being displayed in slant bold font); in this law the direction of the force vector is the same as the direction of the acceleration vector.

3.For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

How did the change impact society at the time?

The scientific revolution made the people start to believe more in in the theory's because it used logic to support the theory's. This made a big impact on the people , in respect on how they were viewing religion. The church later seemed to accept the achievements of the scientific revolution

How is that change evidenced in today's modern society?

Due to the discoveries these scientist discovered we found out many things about the universe we live in. We are constantly improving on these ancient inventions. Some of the inventions we use still to this day is the telescope, microscope, the scientific revolution, barometer. We still have so much more to discover and learn.
