# What Are the Laws of Motion?

## Answer

There are three main laws of motion and the first is 'Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it'. The second law of motion defines the relationship between an object mass, acceleration and an applied force while the third law states, 'For every action there is an equivalent and opposite reaction'.

Newton's Laws of Motion
First Law:
An object in a state of rest or uniform motion will remain in that state unless an external force is applied
Second Law:
Force is equal to an object's mass multiplied by its acceleration, or F=ma
Third Law:
For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction
Newton's laws of motion are pretty simple. Anything that is at rest will stay at rest until it gets pushed; anything that is in motion will stay in motion until something else stops or slows the object. The last rule is for every force there is an opposite and contradicting force.
