Newton's Laws of Motion (02:12)


Sir Isaac Newton was one of the greatest scientific geniuses in history. He established the law of universal gravitation, studied the properties of light, and created the first reflecting telescope. He is most famous for establishing three laws that govern the motion of all universal bodies.

Newton's First Law (03:32)

Force may be defined as the action which produces change in the motion or state of rest of a body. The first law of motion states that an object remains at rest or continues to move at a constant velocity unless acted upon by a force.

Newton's Second Law (01:49)

The second laws states that the acceleration of an object depends on two variables—the force acting upon the object and the mass of that object.

Newton's Third Law (01:31)

The third law states that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. When one body exerts a force on a another, the second body exerts a force that is equal in magnitude in the opposite direction.
