Question and answer
How is the work of Rene Descartes related to that of Sir Isaac Newton? They both made their most famous discoveries while working for the king of England. Newton and Descartes revolutionized
navigation with their research, which led to increased colonization of the Americas. Descartes's developments in analytical geometry were used by Newton in his development of calculus and research into optics. Descartes was inspired to create a system of analytical geometry to describe Newton's Theory of Gravity.
where are the phrases please.. thank youNewton and Descartes both accepted Galileo’s revision of classical and medieval knowledge; but offered contrasting theories of Scientific Knowledge. [ Kepler, Galileo, and the other early scholars of the Scientific Revolution completely discredited Aristotelian theory, but did not synthesize their findings into a single comprehensive conclusion. That
synthesis was completed by Sir Isaac Newton. (1642 – 1727) Read More : ]

Which of the following represents a common thread between the work of Copernicus, Kepler, and Newton? All three were persecuted for their published research. All three developed progressively more accurate models of our solar system. They all created what we know as modern physics. They all created theories that presumed the absence of a divine creator.
Weegy: All three developed progressively more accurate models of our solar system. As is well known to experts, in the Almagest Ptolemy set the deferent radii for all of the planetary models at a constant length of 60 units, [ scaling the epicycle radii to that length. Copernicus himself suggests that he was obsessed with the failures of his predecessors, inconsistencies among astronomers about the ordering of the planets, and puzzles related to variations in the distances of the planets relative to Earth. Precisely because Kepler was searching for a physical solution, he concluded that the line of apsides for all of the planets should pass through the body of the Sun, that is, the true Sun and not the mean Sun as in Copernicus?s theory.26 What Kepler seized on was a peculiarity in Copernicus?s theory, that feature of it which was a remnant of geocentrism. Copernicus?s theory continued to grant Earth a privileged position. The deferent center of all planetary orbits is eccentric to the center of Earth?s orbit. Source(s) : ] (More)
