Isaac Newton was a very intelligent man. He was a proficient physicist, astronomer, alchemist, and a mathematician. He is widely known as “the most important figure in the scientific revolution.” (Baigrie, Brain S. 2001) When Isaac Newton was a physics he formulated the three fundamental laws of motion. Those laws helped led him in the right direction to develop a universal law of gravity. He was the first to discover that color is the property of light and that colors are visable in the spectrum or in the rainbow.
