Default Sir Isaac Newton

Sir Isaac Newton, another great scientist in history. By observing and apple drop from a tree, he discovered not actual gravity, but how to prove it mathematically. If anyone has any comments or facts, post them here!

He found that white light wasn't white! He used a simple but effective projects to discover that a rainbow was inside a sun beam.

He put a prism in front of a sun say and a strip of color appeared. He was tight!!!

Default Apples

It fell on the ground. People knew about gravity and that it was there, but they didn't knw why. Newton found out how to prove it mathematically. Also, I don't thin there is a set name for the study of light and color.
