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
