Newton’s Laws of Motion #1 A body remains at rest, or moves with constant velocity unless acted upon by an outside force #2 The change in a body’s velocity due to an applied force is in the same direction as the force and proportional to it, but is inversely proportional to the body’s mass. F = m a #3 For every applied force, a force of equal size but opposite direction arises.
