Smith writes: "I have no great faith in political arithmetick, and I mean not to warrant the exactness of either of these computations." He is immensely impressed and influenced by the universal scope of Newton’s natural philosophy (magnified by the theory of gravity). Not only was Smith impressed with Newton’s idea of natural law, but also by the accuracy of his methodology unlike that of politik arithimetik. The Wealth of Nations (1776) is seen as his magnum opus of a compilation of physiocratic thinking in addition to Smith’s greatest ideas. But prior to this writing, he also authored History of Astronomy where he traced interest from the Greek’s contribution to Newton’s.
Sir Isaac Newton was a famous scientist, and a Physicist who is recognised as one of the most famous scientists of all time and made science what it is today. Sir Isaac Newton was born on January 4, 1643. He died on March 31, 1727, He was at 85 years old. He was born at Woolsthorpe Manor, United Kingdom. He died at Kensington , London, United Kingdom.
Albert Einstein was the most influential person in the making of the atomic bomb. His theory of relativity E=MC2 and other theories he made were the most influential in discoveries scientists made about energy and its forms. Albert Einstein left behind the biggest legacy ever. Albert Einstein was born March, 14th 1879 in Ulm Württemberg Germany. Einstein’s parents Hiswere Hermann Einstein and Pauline Einstein.
Albert Einstein by Karin Ireland tells the story of Albert Einstein’s life. Albert Einstein was an incredibly smart scientist who was born in Germany. He made many observations including finding a flaw in one of Isaac Newton’s laws, a law about gravity pulling on things without mass. After many years of hard work and negativity directed at him, he finally became successful and famous for all his findings and intelligence. Albert Einstein was a very successful man for being inquisitive, intelligent, and devoted.
Kira Farmer AP11 Research Paper 3.19.2015 Galileo: The Father of Modern Science Every day, students, teachers, doctors, and scientists ponder the great minds of the past with respect. Perhaps one would consider Albert Einstein, Aristotle, Archimedes, Nikola Tesla, or Sir Isaac Newton. How many of today’s world population would consider Galileo Galilei to be the world’s most renowned and influential scientist in world history? Not only did Galileo invent hundreds of things society still uses today. He also put his safety, sanity, and freedom on the line so that the rest of the world and the future world could have truth.
Galileo and the Leaning Tower of Pisa Alexius Sparkman Physical Science February 21, 2018 Abstract Galileo Galilei, an Italian astronomer, natural philosopher, and mathematician that made fundamental contributions to the sciences of motion, and astronomy. One of his greatest contributions to science was emphasis on experimentation, basic part of the scientific method (Chapter 1.2). His formulation of inertia and the law of falling bodies marked the beginning of a fundamental change in the study of motion. Galileo questioned Aristotle’s view that objects fell because of their “earthiness” and that the heavier, or more earthy, an object, the faster it would fall in seeking its “natural” place towards the earth.

Not only did he attack the Church, he also criticized other philosophers and their works as well. As a man of science, Voltaire looked up to and respected the works of Isaac Newton, writing many documents about his work. His works of the Enlightenment era eventually shaped Western philosophy as we know it today. Voltaire, although insane, was one of the most influential writers of the
Christian was a man with a very wide range of interests. At the University of Halle he lectured in mathematics, physics and all aspects of philosophy. He was an extreme rationalist, basing his teaching on the work of Leibniz and emphasising the doctrine of pre - established harmony, but for the content of his rationalism, he appealed to experience. He divided the sciences into the theoretical and the practical. For many fields Wolf wrote textbooks, which were widely used in the universities.
One of his most monumental discoveries, which would eventually be one of the reasons he was put on trial by the Catholic Church, was his discovery of sunspots on the Sun. These discoveries by Galileo invigorated others to verify his results, as the objectivity of the telescope o was in question. Those who looked into Galileo’s telescope would at times see aberrations around the edges of the lens, which would distort the picture. The veracity of Galileo’s claims, created a whole of class of telescopes that were larger and more accurate. This era of telescope manufacturing attracted Isaac Newton to develop his own; however he relied on mirrors to increase his magnification rather than lenses.
Bohr’s atomic model was one of the best created and devised scientific models of the atom in his lifetime considering it brought a large amount of new knowledge to the scientific community. For the previous reasons that are stated above they show why his model of the atom and how everything works together couldn’t necessarily be the correct model because it didn’t follow the previous rules that were discovered and tested on the atom that were found to be
