### What is the relationship between a body's acceleration, mass, and the net force acting on it, according to Newton's second law of motion?

Acceleration multiplied by mass equals the net force

### According to Newton's first law of motion, what happens to a body when no force is acting on it?

It remains at rest or in motion at a constant speed in a straight line

### In which publication did Isaac Newton first state the three laws of motion?

Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica

### What is the condition for two bodies exerting forces on each other, according to Newton's third law of motion?

The forces have the same magnitude but opposite directions

### What did Newton use his three laws of motion to investigate and explain?

The motion of many physical objects and systems

## Study Notes

### Newton's Laws of Motion

• A body's acceleration is directly proportional to the net force acting on it and inversely proportional to its mass, as stated in Newton's second law of motion.
• When no force is acting on a body, it remains in a state of rest or continues to move with a constant velocity, as stated in Newton's first law of motion.
• Isaac Newton first stated the three laws of motion in his publication "Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica" in 1687.
• According to Newton's third law of motion, two bodies exert forces on each other if they are in contact or if one body is exerting a force on the other through a third medium, such as a string or a field.
• Newton used his three laws of motion to investigate and explain the motion of celestial bodies, such as planets and comets, and the behavior of objects on Earth.
