Year 6 Investigates: Sir Isaac Newton
In 1665, the Bubonic plague closed Cambridge University, the work place of the newly graduated Isaac Newton. For most of the following two years he was forced to stay at his home, contemplating at leisure what he had learned. During this time of closure, Newton laid the foundations of the calculus and extended an earlier insight into an essay, “Of Colours”, which contains most of the ideas elaborated in his 'Opticks'. It was during this time that he examined the elements of circular motion and, applying his analysis to the Moon and the planets, derived the inverse square relation that the radially directed force acting on a planet decreases with the square of its distance from the Sun - which was later crucial to the law of universal gravitation. So one of the most influential scientists of all time, formed his ground-breaking theories whilst in isolation. What will you be doing with your time?
