Known for
Isaac Newton was a mathematician and a physicist. He wrote the rules for Gravity. One of his many experiments was on color and light he used prisms for this experiment.
Science Explain
One experiment that I will explain is the light experiment that Isaac did with prisms. Newton’s experiments with light proved that when a white light passes through a prism or, a piece of glass that is shaped like a triangle, it will break up into a very wide color band which is called a spectrum. A spectrum is a variety of colors. Newton’s conclusion from his experiment is that a white light has a bunch of colors inside of it.
Isaac Newton worked at Cambridge for 30 years. He worked as the chair of the committee. In 1672 he was invited to join the Royal society. Isaac proudly accepted.
