    Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1727) Isaac Newton was born in Lincolnshire, on December 25, 1642. He was educated at Trinity College in Cambridge, and resided there from 1661 to 1696 during which time he produced the majority of his work in mathematics. During this time New ton developed several theories, such as his fundamental principles of gravitation, his theory on optics otherwise known as the Lection es Optical, and his work with the Binomial Theorem. This is only a few theories that that Isaac Ne...
  • Cambridge Years
    457 words
    Sir Isaac Newton, mathematician and physicist, was one of the foremost scientific intellects of all time. Born in 1642 at Wools thorpe, near Grantham in Lincolnshire, he attended school. There he entered Cambridge University in 1661. He was elected a Fellow of Trinity College in 1667, and Luc asian Professor of Mathematics in 1669.

  • Isaac Newton And Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz
    451 words
    What is Calculus? A definition found of calculus in a dictionary was this; a method of computation or calculation in a special notation (as of logic or symbolic logic). The historical perspective of calculus is that people had a problem in finding areas and finding tangent lines. The thing that was discovered to figure these problems out was calculus. Some influential people in the development of calculus were Isaac Newton (1642-1727), and Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646-1716). Isaac Newton is c...
  • Major Mathematical Work By Leibnitz
    3,817 words
    Gottfried Wilhelm Leibnitz was born on the July 1, 1646 in Leipzig, Germany and died on November 14, 1716 in Hanover, Germany. He was the son of Friedrich Leibnitz, a professor of moral philosophy at Leipzig.

His mother was Catharina Schmuck, the daughter of a lawyer and Friedrich's third wife. Friedrich died when Leibnitz was only six year...
  • Newton's Second And Third Laws Of Motion
    409 words
    Newton's law of motion serve as the basis for all of physics despite the fact that all three of them are no more than a few sentences long. Newton's first, second, and third laws all hold implications on the concepts of equilibrium and work. Newton's laws of motion have an effect upon equilibrium situations. An object at equilibrium is either moving at a constant velocity, or stationary. At equilibrium there is no acceleration, no net force, and all of the forces are balanced. Newton's first law...
