Isaac Newton “If I am anything, which I highly doubt, I have made myself so by hard work” (Newton 1). When most people think of Isaac Newton they may think of the stories most people know of him taking a peaceful walk around his estate and seeing an apple fall from one of his apple trees causing him to realize how gravity worked. There is also the other story in which Newton was sitting under an apple tree and an apple fell off and hit him in the head causing him to still further understand how gravity worked. But whichever story may or may not have happened it is still not entirely true about how Newton came to his huge discovery of gravity. Isaac Newton a self made English man.

Newton playing a large role in this revolution by publishing all of his discoveries in science at that time. This revolution was all of the different scientists work coming together to change life as we know it. Everyone gained much more knowledge about the world and formulated several different theories in the subjects of mathematics, physics, astronomy, biology, anatomy and chemistry. Newton helped by making advancements in mathematics, physics, astronomy and more. Without Newton the Scientific Revolution would not have been near as revolutionary. One of the arguably most important part of not only Newton’s life but the Scientific Revolution was the Three Laws of…show more content…
Newton drew pictures and lectured about how light and color travel and appear. Once a white light travels through a prism it can come out in all the different colors of the rainbow which is also called the full spectrum of color. White light is a mixture of all the colors of light in the spectrum. For example, if you have paint that is all the colors of the rainbow and mix them together it turns out a messy brown color but if you have different colors of light all of them mixed together will be white. Newton found that the reason fruits and vegetables have their different colors is because the chemicals in the skin of the fruits absorb and reflect different wave links of light. A red apple for example absorbs all the colors of light except red and that is the color it is reflecting. And Isaac Newton himself discovered
