the theory of color seen in the spectrum and the rainbow.

construction of the first practical telescope.

Newton participated in the study of power series, generalized the binomial theorem to non-integer components and developed a method of approximating the roots of a function. His book Philosophaie, Natruals, Principia Mathematica, commonly known as Principia, deals with the principles of modern physics.

Calculated the value of pi to the fourth decimal place.

Developed a formula for calculating the areas of triangles and circles.

Calculated the circumference of the Earth.

Assumed the axial rotation of the Earth

First astronomer to invent continuous solar day counting.

3.Galileo Galilei

Was an outstanding mathematician, astronomer, and physicist, known as the father of modern astronomy. He played a key role in establishing the scientific revolution, contributed to the astronomical observatory and invented the telescope.
