# What did Isaac Newton do?

Isaac Newton was a physicist and mathematician who was born in 1642/3 (see related question for details) in Lincolnshire, UK. He studied at Trinity College, Cambridge and obta…ined his degree. He went on to make major achievements in both Physics and Mathematics. In Physics he is widely considered to be the most influential physicist of all time. In optics he showed white light can be split into colors and recombined into white light and improved the reflecting telescope. In mechanics he was able to explain the motion of the planets in terms of 3 laws of motion (now known as Newton's Laws) and a universal theory of gravity. He published his work on mechanics in "Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica" (now known as the Principia) that was published on 5th July 168. In mathematics he was a co-discoverer of Calculus with Leibniz. It is now generally believed that they both discovered it independently but Leibniz published first although Newton claimed that Leibniz had stolen his work. Newton also developed a generalised binomial theorem along with a range of important mathematical developments. In his later life he became a Member of Parliament and Master of the Royal Mint. He died in 1726/7 in London, England. (See related question for more detail.) From Answers.com... Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1727) was an English scientist and mathematician. He made major contributions in mathematics and theoretical and experimental physics and achieved a remarkable synthesis of the work of his predecessors on the laws of motion, especially the law of universal gravitation.

# When did Isaac newton invent the newton meter?

Isaac Newton did not invent the newton meter. It was invented by others, and it was the bane of his existence. He spent many fruitless hours, while on break from his… weightier and more forceful work, trying to get rid of it. Since Newton worked at home, the monthly visits by HRH's Joule Counters never escaped his notice. How blithely and cavalierly they trotted their steeds around back of Newton's humble cottage, trampling his petunias. How inconsiderately they positioned themselves as far apart as possible in his back yard, and then, at as high a volume as humanly possible, yelled out the numbers, as one Collector read them and the other entered them in the official record for billing purposes ... the yelling dislodging Newton's concentration for the rest of that day and often much of the next as well, too. His fabled temper aroused, Newton applied his not insignificant intellectual gifts to the task of outwitting the Joule Collectors, and the satanic instrument fixed to his home which they came regularly to consult. Inside, he banned the use of any refrigeration, salting his food instead when the aroma became overpowering, and parting the electrical rope from its berth in the wall. For light, he returned to the candle and the lantern, and for heat, to the black lumps of peat and coal, rather than the full-room baseboard heater whose use set the outside device to spinning. With these rules in place, Newton was certain, the device would cease its circular motion, grow cobwebs, and discourage the Collectors from any further visits. But it was not to be. The plethora of unseen devices that fed in his home at the trough of the unseen energy stream kept the device stuck to his home turning night and day, as they do in ours. The clocks, cellphone chargers, night lights, instant-on entertainment center, every one of them on when presumed off, all kept the outside device turning, registering, counting, accumulating, indicating, totalizing, spinning the little clock-faces, mounting up the digits that the Collectors came to ogle each month, when it was the Newton neighborhood's turn, and they came ... to read Newton's meter. No because the metre was not invented until the time of Napolean, that's a long long time after Isaac Newton was around.

# When did Isaac Newton become Sir Isaac Newton?

April 16, 1705. He became Sir Isaac Newton when Queen Anne agreed he cud change his name. Some others he was considering are: Handsome B. Wonderful, Rembrandt Q. Einstein, Her…cules Rockefeller, Lance Uppercut, Max Power, and Rock Strongo.

# Why are newtons named after Isaac Newton?

The newton (N) was adopted as the unit of force in the Systeme Internationale (SI) in the 1960s. It was named in honor of Sir Isaac Newton. His 2nd Law, F=ma was used to deriv…e the unit from the existing SI units the metre, the second and the kilogram. Newton is also one of the most famous and influential physicists of all time.

# Are Fig Newtons named after Isaac Newton?

No. The Fig Newton was named after the city of Newton, Massachusetts, a suburb of Boston. Kennedy Biscuit Company, which merged into the National Biscuit Company (now shortene…d to Nabisco) in 1898, was based in Massachusetts, and named several of its cookies after surrounding towns. The Newton, first produced in 1891, was the most successful, and is the only one that survives today.

# Did Isaac Newton invent the Newton?

No he didn't although he did discover a lot of things about forces and is widely thought of as one of the most influential physiscists of all time. It is for this reason that …the SI unit for force was named the Newton in his honour.

# In which year did Isaac Newton come up with his theory of relativity?

Sir Isaac Newton's theory of gravity was written in 1687, however he did not come up with a theory of relativity. The first person to come up with a theory of relativity was G…alileo Galilei, but this theory turned out to be incorrect. In a paper in 1905 Albert Einstein built upon Galileo's ideas and produced the special theory of relativity. This is a very famous paper that turned the physics world on its head. The equivalance of mass and energy in his most famous equation, was deduced as a result of this theory. Furthermore, In 1916 Albert Einstein produced the General theory of relativity, a theory of gravitiation which is an extremely successfulvand famous theory. This is the gravitation theory that we use today, as it is supremely accurate. However, Newtons theory of gravitiation works well for speeds much less than the speed of light in a vacuum, and has the benefit of being much less complex!

# When did Isaac Newton come up with the theory of gravity?

There was no exact date. 5th of July 1687 was the sharpest date, which was the date of publishing of the "Principia". If you type into Google Principa Mathematica this is th…e calculus that he formulated to solve the mystery of gravity. I know it was in the 1600's but cannot remember the exact date. Olly

# What does Isaac Newton have to do with Newton mass?

'Newton mass' is a term, usually called weight, that is a measure of the force on an object due to being in a gravitational field. Sir Isaac Newton pioneered seeing the physic…al world in terms of the interaction of forces, and the SI unity of measurement, the Newton, is named after him.
