  Isaac Newton - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Newton was born in Woolsthorpe-by-Colsterworth (at Woolsthorpe Manor), a hamlet in the county of Lincolnshire.
Newton was also a member of the Parliament of England from 1689 to 1690 and in 1701, but his only recorded comments were to complain about a cold draft in the chamber and request that the window be closed.
Newton rejected the church's doctrine of the trinity, and was probably a follower of arianism.

 BBC - History - Sir Isaac Newton (1643 - 1727)
Newton treated the moving body as the passive subject of external forces acting upon it, and this new approach to impact dynamics remains the basis for the analysis of impact today.
Newton took his studies on impact a step further, and used them to show that the earth's rotation does not fling bodies into the air because the force of gravity, measured by the rate of falling bodies, is greater than the centrifugal force arising from the rotation.
Newton realised that this was not the case - a white page with fl writing did not appear coloured when viewed from a distance and the fl and white blended, it appeared as grey.

 Newton, Sir Isaac
Sir Isaac Newton, the culminating figure in the scientific revolution of the 17th century, was born on Jan. 4, 1643 (N.S.; Dec. 25, 1642, O.S.), in the manor house of Woolsthorpe, near Grantham, Lincolnshire, England.
Newton immersed himself in the new mechanical philosophy of DESCARTES, GASSENDI, and BOYLE; in the new algebra and analytical geometry of VIETA, Descartes, and WALLIS; and in the mechanics and Copernican astronomy of GALILEO.
Newton argued that white light is really a mixture of many different types of rays, that the different types of rays are refracted at slightly different angles, and that each different type of ray is responsible for producing a given spectral color.

 Isaac Newton (1642 - 1727)
Newton replied saying that he had abandoned the study of philosophy, but he added that the earth's diurnal motion might be proved by the experiment of observing the deviation from the perpendicular of a stone dropped from a height to the ground - an experiment which was subsequently made by the Society and succeeded.
Newton assumed that all geometrical magnitudes might be conceived as generated by continuous motion; thus a line may be considered as generated by the motion of a point, a surface by that of a line, a solid by that of a surface, a plane angle by the rotation of a line, and so on.
Newton then went on to apply these results to questions connected with the maxima and minima of quantities, the method of drawing tangents to curves, and the curvature of curves (namely, the determination of the centre of curvature, the radius of curvature, and the rate at which the radius of curvature increases).

 Apple Newton - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The PDA category did not exist for most of Newton's genesis, and the "personal digital assistant" term itself was coined relatively late in the development cycle by Apple's then-CEO John Sculley, the driving force behind the project.
Newton could also recognize and clean up simple drawn shapes such as triangles, circles, and squares, and had an intuitive system for handwritten editing, such as scratching out words to be deleted, circling text to be selected, or using written carets to mark inserts.
The Apple iPod is somewhat of a descendant of the Newton in that it is a pocket-sized programmable device based on the ARM processor.

 Isaac Newton's Life
Newton made contributions to all branches of mathematics then studied, but is especially famous for his solutions to the contemporary problems in analytical geometry of drawing tangents to curves (differentiation) and defining areas bounded by curves (integration).
Newton's work on pure mathematics was virtually hidden from all but his correspondents until 1704, when he published, with Opticks, a tract on the quadrature of curves (integration) and another on the classification of the cubic curves.
Correspondence with Hooke (1679-1680) redirected Newton to the problem of the path of a body subjected to a centrally directed force that varies as the inverse square of the distance; he determined it to be an ellipse, so informing Edmond Halley in August 1684.

 Isaac Newton
The legend is that Newton saw an apple fall in his garden in Lincolnshire, thought of it in terms of an attractive gravitational force towards the earth, and realized the same force might extend as far as the moon.
Newton realized that the moon's circular path around the earth could be caused in this way by the same gravitational force that would hold such a cannonball in low orbit, in other words, the same force that causes bodies to fall.
Newton's answer was that the natural acceleration of the moon was much smaller than that of the cannonball because they were both caused by a force---a gravitational attraction towards the earth, and that the gravitational force became weaker on going away from the earth.

Newton went to the grammar school in Grantham and after farming at Woolsthorpe for 2 years was sent to Trinity College, Cambridge, in 1661.
Newton's law of cooling states that the rate at which a body loses heat to its surroundings is proportional to the temperature difference between the body and its surroundings.

 Sir Isaac Newton: The Universal Law of Gravitation
Finally, Newton reasoned that if the cannon projected the cannon ball with exactly the right velocity, the projectile would travel completely around the Earth, always falling in the gravitational field but never reaching the Earth, which is curving away at the same rate that the projectile falls.
Newton concluded that the orbit of the Moon was of exactly the same nature: the Moon continuously "fell" in its path around the Earth because of the acceleration due to gravity, thus producing its orbit.
However Newton, largely as a corollary of his 3rd Law, demonstrated that the situation actually was more symmetrical than Kepler imagined and that the Sun does not occupy a privileged postion; in the process he modified Kepler's 3rd Law.

 Wired News: Apple's Newton Just Won't Drop
The Newton should have gone away, but amazingly, it has kept current, in both hardware and software, thanks to the efforts of Newton enthusiasts.
Sure, the Newton's limited processing power (160-MHz processor) and memory (average 4 MB) limits storage to a handful of songs at a fairly low bit rate, but it saves Newton users $300 on an iPod.
The Newton also has no headphone jack, although one can be fashioned with an inexpensive homemade dongle.

 Sir Isaac Newton and the Unification of Physics & Astronomy   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1727) was by many standards the most important figure in the development of modern science.
We shall concentrate on three developments of most direct relevance to our discussion: (1) Newton's Three Laws of Motion, (2) the Theory of Universal Gravitation, and (3) the demonstration that Kepler's Laws follow from the Law of Gravitation.
In fact, Newton went even further: he showed that Kepler's Laws of planetary motion were only approximately correct, and supplied the quantitative corrections that with careful observations proved to be valid.
