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.
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.
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.
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.
This segment reviews the concepts of the laws of motions discussed in this video.

This program covers Sir Isaac Newton and his laws of motion. We’ll explore Newton’s observations concerning universal gravity, Newton’s first law (the Law of Inertia), Newton’s second law, and Newton’s third law.
