What are Newton’s Laws of motion

The following are the Newton’s laws of motion :

Newton’s I Law: A body continues to in its state of rest or of uniform motion along a straight line unless an external force is applied on it.

Show that Newton’s 1st Law of Motion defines force?

According to the law of motion, a body continues to be in its state of rest or of uniform along a straight line unless it is acted upon by an external force.

So, we define force in the form of a push or pull which may change or tends to change the state of rest or of uniform motion of a body.

Newton’s II Law: The rate of change of linear momentum of the body is directly proportional to the external force applied on the body and this change takes place in the direction of the applied force.

Discuss the consequences of Newton’s 2nd Law of Motion. Continue reading “What are Newton’s Laws of motion”
