Study Notes

Newton's Laws of Motion

  • A body remains at rest or in motion at a constant speed in a straight line when no force is acting on it, according to Newton's first law of motion.

Newton's First Law of Motion

  • A body remains at rest or in motion at a constant speed in a straight line when no force is acting on it.

Newton's Second Law of Motion

  • The acceleration of a body is directly proportional to the net force acting on it and inversely proportional to its mass.

Newton's Third Law of Motion

  • When two bodies exert forces on each other, the forces are equal in magnitude and opposite in direction.

Investigation and Explanation

  • Newton used the three laws of motion to investigate and explain the motion of celestial bodies, tides, and the behavior of comets.

Publication

  • The three laws of motion were first stated by Isaac Newton in his publication "Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica".
