What is scientific revolution?
The Scientific Revolution refers to that period in history (basically the 17th century) when men and women began to ascertain truths about life, the world, and the heavens, without resorting to Christian dogma for the answers. The beginning of the scientific revolution may be laid solidly in the lap of Sir Isaac Newton and his three laws of motion. What ever the truth about Newton and the apple, his "laws" made possible an explaination of how the heavens worked without having to conclude "It's God's will." As Newton, Gallieo, Bacon, and others devised ways to experiment and interpret what they saw around them, the scientific revolution grew far beyond what the Church was willing to accept.

The principles of the Scientific Revolution, which held that everything including the government was worth examination and scrutiny, spread to these philosophies; our early po…litical scientist.
Answer It was a profound change in intellectual thought in the 16th and 17th centuries.
the scientific revolution was when people starting more questions about how things worked. this would be like Copernicus with the heliocentric theory instead of the geocentric… theory. Sir Isaac Newton with the 3 laws of motion, someone else involved would Galileo Galilei who improved the telescope and discover the moons of Neptune etc. this is also when the church was threatening to excommunicate or ban/ kick them out. The scientific revolution was where modern science began which changed the way the world was viewed.
Merriam-Webster's dictionary defines "revolution" as "a sudden, radical, or complete change". So in effect the renaissace (or "re-birth") enlightenment and scientific re…volutions were legitmate changes in society and the way that life was thought to be. New ideas emerged in each revolution that benifited society in great ways, such as the idea of humanism that came out of the Renaissance. They call them revolutions because of the radical changes that took place. However, if you are thinking of the term revolution in a military sense then no they were not related to a military uprising that took place.
Yes! In a way that technologies were being used and what was the best of the best. Such as the invention of the telescope, medical stitches, or microscope.
During the scientific revolution, seventeenth-century natural philosophers had produced new answers to rudimentary questions about our world. Age-old questions about astronom…y and physics had been looked at through whole new perspectives, and some answered. Copernicus had countered the Ptolemaic system of the universe by suggesting that the earth revolved on its own axis and orbited the sun with the other planets. Galileo had seen that Jupiter had its own moons so the earth was indeed not the center of the planetary system. He had also seen that moon had earth-like features, such as plains and mountains, countering religious beliefs that celestial bodies were of a higher order of perfection. New methods of gathering and deciphering information were created. Bacon advocated an inductive approach to knowledge: taking evidence from specific observations to draw general conclusions. This contradicted many methods at the time which had philosophical errors in how first principles were usually assumed. Descartes (who said the famous "Je pense donc je suis", "I think therefore I am") emphasized deductive reasoning, going logically from one certainty to another. Natural philosophers began talking to and working with each other in organizations that developed research standards. Such organizations include England's Royal Society and the French Royal Academy of Sciences. Knowledge was reborn during the scientific revolution. What did the scientific revolution do? A great deal for the intellectual world.
The scientific revolution influenced the American Revolution mainly because of communication advances with inventions such as the printing press. Also, weaponry became mor…e advanced.

Because Nicolaus Copernicus ( a polish Scientest) was the strater of the Scientific Revoultion. And sometimes he gets full credit for it .On a nother note he was the founder/s…tarter of the heilocentric theory whcih means that it was the idea for him that the sun is in the center of out solar system.Unlike plotomenys theory that the earth was the center of the universe.

i t provided a way to test a hypothesis.
the Enlightenment started about 1600 with the Scientific Revolution (SR) of Galileo, Descartes and Newton. SR's message of relativity, subjectivity and rationality clearly …extended beyond the scientific into the human. Philosophers did not grasp a button of this message and deformed it, paving the way to the anti-Enlightenment reaction of "idealist" irrational balderdash culminating in the fatuous Great German Idealism, which in turn lead to Nazism and Gulag. It's by far too short a description of an enormous phenomenon and, if requested, I can elaborate.
Scientific revolution was applied first on physics, Newton's and Enistian's and Quantum theories ,So plate tectonics basically changed our view on earth mechanism that it made… a revolution in Geo science.
Science was a radical new idea, it was a completely different way of looking at the world.
because it was a time of change
