Newton's First Law
an object will maintain its constant velocity unless acted upon by an outside force.
Example of Newtons 1st Law
A ball will not spontaneously start to move on its own. You need to apply an unbalanced force to make it move.
Newton's Second Law
The acceleration of an object is directly proportional to the force on the object
the acceleration of an object is indirectly proportional to the mass of the object.
Newton's Third Law
Every action as an equal (in magnitude) and opposite (in direction) action.
Examples of Newton's Third Law
Pushing on a wall. The action force is the person pushing on the wall, and the reaction force is the wall pushing back on the person.
