- Newton also shares credit with Gottfried Leibniz for the development of calculus.
Newton’s Three laws of motion.
- Newton’s first law states that every object will remain at rest or in uniform motion in a straight line unless compelled to change its state by the action of an external force.
- The third law states that for every action (force) in nature there is an equal and opposite reaction.
- The second law states that the acceleration of an object is dependent upon two variables – the net force acting upon the object and the mass of the object.
