His Works

  • Newton built the first practical reflecting telescope in 1668; he also developed a theory of light based on the observation that a prism decomposes white light into the colors of the rainbow.
  • Newton also shares credit with Gottfried Leibniz for the development of calculus.

Newton’s Three laws of motion.

  • Newton’s first law states that every object will remain at rest or in uniform motion in a straight line unless compelled to change its state by the action of an external force.
  • The third law states that for every action (force) in nature there is an equal and opposite reaction.
  • The second law states that the acceleration of an object is dependent upon two variables – the net force acting upon the object and the mass of the object.
