Sir Isaac Newton, born on the 25th of December 1642 in Woolsthorpe by Colsterworth, Lincolnshire, England, and passing away on the 20th of March 1727, is regarded as one of, if not the most influential Mathematician and Physicist of all time and he was a huge figure that took a great part in the scientific revolution. Sir Newton was born 3 months after his father (a profitable farmer), also named Isaac Newton passed away, followed by his Mother re-marrying when he was 3 years old to a stepfather that Sir Newton grossly disliked, so much that in his list of sins up to the age of 19 he confessed to; "Threatening my father and mother Smith to burn them and the house over them." The great brain of Sir Newton remained unused between the age of…show more content…
As Sir Newton became more recognised for his advanced working, his Lucasian professor Isaac Barrow became impressed with Sir Newton and Sir Newton eventually succeeded Barrow as the universities Lucasian professor along with receiving his Master of Arts degree a year after. By this time he was reaching his middle ages and Sir Newton's work was said "to distinctly advance every branch of mathematics then studied". He worked more on the binomial theorem, harmonic series by logarithms, his identities and methods, optics, cubics and finally mechanics and gravitation which have a strong relation to projectiles and ballistics. Two of the main workings of Sir Newton which also relate strongly to projectiles and ballistics is the famous one named “Newton’s Apple” which is fundamental in all education in the world today and of which most of the world will recognise and also his “Law’s of Motion” which is largely similar to “Newton’s Apple” where most people will recognise what these laws are and who they came from. This demonstrates what a significant impact Newton had on Mathematics and Physics in his time and how his workings have provided a solid base for contemporary Mathematicians and Physicists to work on today. Newtons Apple and the Laws of motion Newton’s laws of motion are three laws that make the base of classical mechanics and he used them to explain analyse the motion of many
