Question: Issac Newton throught about the gravity from an apple and he worked in many areas of mathematics and physics. In the year 1686, Newton presented three laws of motion in the "Principia Mathematica Philosophiae Naturalis." Please explain and differential the three laws of motion in the ""Principia Mathematical Philosophiae Naturalis" My answer: Hi, Newton's laws of motion consist of three physical laws that form the basis for mechanics. Newton's First Law of Motion states that an object at rest will remain at rest or an object in motion continues in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless an external force is applied to it. This law is often called "The Law of Inertia". Newton's Second Law of Motion states that acceleration is produced when a force acts on a mass. The greater the mass of the object being accelerated, the greater the amount of force needed to accelerate the object. This forms the equation F = ma. Finally, Newton's Third Law of Motion states that for every action there is an equal and opposite
