Summary of ideas-he began the Theroy of motion. Newton studied mathematics and physics at Cambridge University. By the time he was 26, Newton was confident that all physical objects were affected by the same forces. Newton’s discovery was that the same force ruled motion of the planets and all matter on earth and in space. All of this was supported by the law of gravity. This meant that all objects were attracted to each other. The amount of attraction between the objects are influenced by the mass of each object and the space between each object. Newton also believed God was the creator of all of this and was the one who created these laws.
Time Period- Isaac Newton was Born on January 4, 1643, in Woolsthorpe, England, Isaac Newton was an established physicist and mathematician, and is believed to have one of the great minds of the 17th century Scientific Revolution. With discoveries in optics, motion and mathematics, Newton developed the principles of physics.
Impact on society- From all of his theories and him proving most of them he found out many laws and those include law of motion and gravity. He also formed the basis of modern physics that are still taught today. I personally believe that he had a bigger impacted on today's society then he did during the 17th century. Because during that time he was only testing those theories and trying to make them true and not a lot of people know about him. But during today's age we learn about him specifically and about the laws he discovered. Also we lean about physics which he started the basis of and later was built upon. So personally I believed he impacted today's age more than he impacted the 17th century.
Quote of wisdom- "My powers are ordinary, only my application brings me success." This is pretty much saying you can have ideas that are amazing but until you go out and actually try to prove them to be true then that's when those ideas actually mean something.
Impact on traditional beliefs- He challenged it by by proving to people the law of motion and that all physical objects were affected by the same force which is gravity and each thing is affected by another thing. He also created a new idea which was the basics of physics which nobody ever knew existed so they didn't believe it because they're not use to change and they don't like it because the old was working so why change it.
