About the Book

"Opticks" is a groundbreaking work by Sir Isaac Newton that revolutionized the study of optics. The book is structured as a series of experiments and observations that Newton conducted over several years to explore the nature of light and color. One of the most significant contributions of "Opticks" is Newton's theory of color, which he developed through his experiments with prisms. He demonstrated that white light could be separated into a spectrum of colors and that each color was refracted at a different angle. He also explored the idea that colors were not inherent to objects but were instead a result of the way light interacted with those objects. In addition to his work on color, Newton also explored the nature of light itself, proposing that light was made up of particles, which he called "corpuscles," rather than waves. This idea was controversial at the time, but it laid the groundwork for the development of modern particle physics.

About Author

Sir. Isaac Newton

Sir Isaac Newton was an English mathematician, physicist, and astronomer who lived from 1643 to 1727. He is widely regarded as one of the most influential scientists in history, and his work on optics, mechanics, and mathematics laid the foundation for modern physics. Newton was born in Lincolnshire, England, and studied at Cambridge University. He made many important discoveries during his time at Cambridge, including his work on the laws of motion and the development of calculus. One of Newton's most significant contributions to science was his work on optics, which he explored in detail in his book "Opticks." He was the first to demonstrate that white light could be separated into a spectrum of colors using a prism, and he developed a theory of color that remains a cornerstone of modern physics.
