What Newton’s laws of motion

According to Sir Isaac Newton, motion is the change of any object with respect to its surroundings in a given interval of time.

Mathematically motion is described in the terms of Velocity, distance, displacement, speed and acceleration.

However, there is no absolute frame of distance is the absolute motion can’t be determined

Who created Newton’s laws

“Newton” himself was the creator of his laws. And it’s a very strange thing that you’re searching for such strange questions on Google.


What is Newton’s first law

Suppose an object is in a stationary state, then it will remain stationary unless there is any kind of force on it.

An object that is in motion will stop only when a force is exerted on it

In his first law, Newton wants to say that no object changes place without any force.


Why Newton’s first law important

Newton’s first law can justify the inertial reference frame and because of that, it’s an important law.

We can’t explain the inertial reference frame just using the second law, because if F=0 and gravity or a is not 0 (or vise versa) we can’t say this frame is inertial anymore. If we discover that a frame is inertial we can’t use the second law.

Because we based the definition of the first law on an inertial frame, so we don’t need to know about the frame of reference to apply the first law and we can directly we can use it to explain.


What is Newton’s second law

The second law’s formula is:



m→mass of an object


Force is equal to the rate of change of momentum due to its mass.

Unlike the first law, in which the forces applied to the object were in equilibrium, in the second law, the forces are unbalanced.

Whenever a force is applied to an object, the object accelerates under the influence of that force.

This acceleration is directly related to the mass of the object and is a force in the same direction.


Why Newton’s second law is important

Newton’s second law shows the relationship between force and motion, this relationship is very useful. With this law and its formula, we can calculate different types of forces on different amounts of masses and get the quantity of acceleration.

These calculations and information for scientists, engineers, physicists, inventors are very important and helpful.

This law has many examples and applications even in daily life, and it can be used to calculate and apply the minimum force to move objects.


What is Newton’s third law

Whenever an object exerts a force on another object, the second object exerts a force equal to the first object, but in the opposite direction.

It explains that for every single action in nature, there’s equal force and opposite direction reaction.

It is also called the action and reaction law. This rule can be easily observed in electric charges and magnet poles.


Why Newton’s third law is important

Newton’s third law is widely used in aerospace engineering. In addition, Newton’s third law explains the cause of some physical phenomena, such as thrusting.


Are Newton’s laws true

The laws and models of physics, along with the formulas of mathematical calculations, explain the reasons for many phenomena that occur in nature.

Newton’s laws are not separate from other laws, they state the principles of motion which is a common and necessary phenomenon.

These rules can answer many questions and put phenomena under the microscope in the sense that they provide detailed reasons.

As a result, laws that reflect the phenomena of nature and do not contradict them can be said to be true.


When do Newton’s laws not apply

Newton’s laws do not work well for small particles, for example, the motions and forces between atoms, molecules, or electrons in an electric current cannot be explained by Newton’s laws or they can not be examined accurately.

Quantum mechanics is used instead of Newtonian mechanics to justify small-scale motion. Quantum mechanics predicts the motion of small particles much better than Newton’s laws.

Consequently, it can be said that Newton‘s laws have no application in quantum physics.
