He actually predicted the shape of the earth as" oblate spheroid", and his discoveries are many some of them are as follows , three laws of motion

1st law : Law of inertia that is ,an object in rest continues to be in rest unless it is acted upon by some force and a moving object would continue to move unless it is stopped by some force .

2nd law :The second law states that acceleration is produced when a force acts on a mass.

3rd law :For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction .

Universal gravitation was one of his famous discovery .

And as well he also discovered optics .Hope this helps :)

The ancients thought that the earth was supported in space by all sorts of fantastic means. It was Isaac Newton who scientifically showed that by laws of motion and gravitation, the earth floated free in space.
