Life Of Isaac Newton

Isaac Newton was born on December 25, 1642 in Woolsthorpe Manor, near Grantham, Lincolnshire. He died at the age of 84, on March 31, 1727, at 12:00 in London. This article takes you through his life and the events that shaped him.

Life of isaac newton teaches us many things, Hardworking, Dedication and focus.


Childhood Life Of Isaac Newton

 Isaac Newton was an astronomer, mathematician, and physicist from England. He was born at Woolsthorpe, Lincolnshire, on December 25, 1642. At the age of 85, he died on March 20, 1727. 

He is regarded as one of history’s finest scientists. His discoveries and theories were so important that they changed how people thought about everything from physics to religion.

Newton’s mother died three months after he was born, so he was raised by his grandmother until he was three years old. When his father remarried, Newton moved back with him into the family home in Grantham, Lincolnshire where he lived for most of his childhood.

When he was twelve years old, Newton left school to help his father run an inn called The King’s Head Inn in Grantham town centre which had been built by his grandfather but had fallen into disrepair after being closed for many years before it reopened under John Newton’s ownership in 1654.

The inn is now known as The Royal Sun Inn and is still open today serving food and drinks to tourists visiting the historic town.

Middle Age Life Of Isaac Newton

In 1661 at age 19, Newton entered Cambridge University where he studied mathematics under professor Isaac Barrow (1630-1677).

Barrow recognized Newton’s talent and encouraged him to pursue further studies in mathematics and physics after graduation. During this period of time, there were no formal requirements for degrees; instead students were required to pass oral exams.

In 1661, Isaac Newton entered Cambridge University at the age of 17 and graduated in 1665 with a degree in mathematics and physics.

After graduating from Cambridge University, Isaac Newton became an assistant to his former teacher Sir Isaac Barrow at Trinity College in Cambridge University where he studied mathematics and optics (the study of light).

In 1669, Isaac Newton became a professor at Trinity College where he taught mathematics until 1696 when he retired from teaching because of poor health (he suffered from nervous breakdowns throughout most of his life).


Educational Life Of Isaac Newton

Isaac Newton was born on January 4, 1643 in Woolsthorpe-by-Colsterworth, England. His mother died three months after his birth, and his father died when he was three years old. After his father’s death, Isaac went to live with his grandmother and uncle as an apprentice to his uncle, a farmer.

Newton attended school at Grantham Grammar School where he learned Latin and Greek. In 1661 he entered Trinity College, Cambridge University where he studied mathematics, astronomy and physics under Sir Isaac Barrow.

After graduating from Cambridge University in 1665, Newton became a fellow of Trinity College. While at Cambridge University he discovered the laws of motion and gravity; this led to his famous book Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica (Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy) which was published in 1687 when he was only 43 years old.

He explained in this book that every body attracts every other body with a force that is directly proportional to its mass (the greater the mass, the stronger the attraction) and inversely proportional to the square of its distance (the farther away).


Work Life Of Isaac Newton

In 1661 when Isaac Newton was 21 years old, he became a fellow of Trinity College in Cambridge University where he studied mathematics, optics, astronomy and physics under the guidance of professor Isaac Barrow who is considered one of the greatest mathematicians of all time.

In 1665 England was hit by plague epidemic that killed thousands of people including Isaac Newton’s mother and brother. In 1666 Newton graduated from Trinity College with a degree in theology but later shifted his focus towards mathematics and science.

He also began working on optics where he discovered that white light can be split into different colors using a prism which led him to develop theories about how light works.

The first book he wrote was called Opticks and it was published in 1704 when Newton was eighty years old! It was this book that made him famous throughout Europe.

It contains his discoveries about light and color which were very important for artists like Rembrandt and Vermeer who used them in their paintings.


Isaac Newton Theories

 Isaac Newton was a brilliant scientist and mathematician who made many important contributions to science. His theories of motion, gravitation, and optics form the foundation of classical mechanics. Newton also developed calculus, which has become essential for modern physics.


Isaac Newton Achievements And Discoveries

Newton’s most important work was in mathematics and physics. In mathematics he introduced the binomial theorem and developed calculus (which he called fluxions).

His three laws of motion describe how bodies move under the influence of forces such as gravity, friction and air resistance. The law of gravitation states that every body attracts every other body with a force which is proportional to both their masses and inversely proportional to the square of their separation distance.

This law explains why objects fall towards Earth or why planets orbit around it.

The study of light led Newton to discover that white light is made up of all colors of light put together. This discovery led him to invent the reflecting telescope which uses mirrors instead of lenses for magnification.


Interesting Facts About Isaac Newton

He was the son of a farmer and had only a basic education. He had to leave school early to take care of his family farm when his father died. This was because his mother was too poor to support them both.

In his early years he was interested in alchemy and astrology, but later turned to mathematics and physics. He invented differential and integral calculus which are used by scientists today.

Newton believed that white light is made up of seven colors (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet) and that these colors combined to make white light would create a rainbow effect. He also thought that other colors could be created by mixing different amounts of reds, oranges etc…

However his theory about light being made up of seven colors has since been proven wrong by experiments that show white light can be split into all colors of the spectrum without losing any energy or creating new colors from them!


Death Of Isaac Newton

In 1696, Newton became Warden of the Royal Mint in London. This position gave him power over all of England’s currency as well as its gold and silver bullion reserves.

He retired from this position in 1701 due to poor health but continued to work on scientific papers until his death in 1727 at age 84.
