1700 – Bernoulli – bio

Daniel Bernoulli was born in 1700 in the Netherlands and became a mathematician known for his work with fluid dynamics and probability and statistics. In fluid mechanics, “Bernoulli’s Principle” describes the relationships involved amongst fluid speed, pressure differential and potential energy. PRECURSOR: 1627 – Boyle 1642 – Newton 1646 – Leibniz 1662 – Boyle’s law […]

1768 – Fourier – bio

Jean Babtiste Joseph Fourier (known as Joseph) was born in 1768 in France and was a mathematician who became known for his work on heat transfer and the analysis of periodic functions (wave forms) using combinations of trigonometric series. These are now called Fourier series and the process is called Fourier analysis. PRECURSOR: 1642 – […]

1838 – Mach – bio

Ernst Mach was born in 1838 in what was then part of Austria and now part of the Czech Republic. He was a physicist and philosopher and studied wave dynamics, fluid mechanics and shock waves. He was the first to study super-sonic motion. Multiples of the speed of sound are now designated by numbers named […]

1642 – Newton – bio

Isaac Newton was born in 1643 in Linconshire, England. He made exceptional contributions to physics, mathematics and astronomy and was also accomplished in philosophy and theology. His laws of motion and gravity became landmarks for centuries. He and Leibniz independently developed calculus. He investigated the refraction of light and created the first working reflecting telescope. […]
