Another famous scientist named Isaac Newton, discovered the three laws of motion. The 1st law deals with “an object at rest tends to stay at rest, and an object in motion tends to stay in motion, with the same direction and speed.” (studios). “The 2nd law of motion deal with the second law says that the acceleration of an object produced by a net (total) applied force is directly related to the magnitude of the force.” The formula for the 2nd law of motion is F=ma. (studios). The 3rd law of motion says, “that for every action (force) there is an equal and opposite reaction (force).”
