Isaac Newton, Principia Mathematica, 1686 AXOIMS, or LAWS OF MOTION First Law A particle remains at rest or continues to move in a straight line with constant velocity if there are no unbalanced forces acting on it Second Law The resultant force acting on a particle is proportional to the time rate of change of momentum of the particle Third Law The forces of action and reaction between interacting particles are equal in magnitude, opposite in direction, and collinear
