Sir Isaac Newton’s Mathematical Influence on Physics

Physics / April 23, 2015 / No Comments

This essay discusses the life of Sir Issac Newton and the points of his life that brought forth his great advances in the realm of physics and mathematics. As a child Sir Isaac Newton took little interest in what was being taught to his classmates (Bixby 90). Instead, he found ways to fulfill his desire to learn. He marked where the shadows fell in his yard in order to keep time, thus producing his sundial (Rattansi 12). His interest in rushing water inspired Newton to build a windmill.
