Newton’s Laws

Definition : Laws that describe the relationship between a body and the forces that act on it and the motion of the body as a response.

Newton’s Laws are the foundations of classical mechanics. There are three of these laws. First law states that if a body is in motion it will stay in motion and if it is at rest it will stay at rest until there is a force that acts on it. Second law states that the net force acting on the body is equal its mass times acceleration. Third law states that for every action there is an equal but opposite reaction.
