Isaac Newton Early life, Education, Career, Awards, Achievements, Controversy, Unknown Facts

About (Profile/Biography):

Isaac Newton is a well-known English mathematician born in England. Sir Isaac Newton is regarded as the best and most influential scientist. He was an exceptional mathematician, astronomer, physicist, and alchemist. He invented the fundamentals of modern physics, which he outlined in his work "Philosophiae, Naturalis, Principia Mathematica," making him one of the most significant contributions to the "Scientific Revolution" of the 17th century. The book, more well-known as "Principia," focused on ideas like universal gravitation and laws of motion that have long been at the forefront of scientific thought. In addition, he devised and researched the theory of color.

Career:

Newton was the first to explain that color is an inherent feature of light and that white light disintegrates into various hues, frequently seen in the spectrum or the rainbow when reflected, dispersed, or transmitted.

Newton also contributed to the study of power series, expanded the application of the binomial theorem to non-integer exponents, and created a technique for roughly approximating function roots. 

Newton made a notable and significant contribution to theology and alchemy.

According to Newton, the motion of the moon, an apple falling from a tree, and the relationship between a pendulum and a sling can all be attributed to a single force.

By expanding on Hooke's theory, he demonstrated that a centripetal force inversely proportional to the square of the radius vector would cause planetary orbits to take an elliptical shape.

Achievements and Awards:

The release of "Principia" helped Newton's renown reach new heights. He received widespread acclaim, among the pinnacles of human achievement, for his findings.

Newton held many important posts in his life. He was not only the President of the "Royal Society," but also the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics, as well as the Warden and Master.

Unknown facts:

In 1816, a tooth belonging to Newton was sold at auction for almost $3,600.
