Isaac Newton's Three Laws of Motion
In 1687, Isaac Newton published his three laws of motion in his Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy or Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica. Newton's laws of motion are three physical laws that lay the foundation for classical mechanics. The three laws describe the relationship between bodies, motion, and forces acting upon the bodies.

1st Law of Motion:
Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it. Law of Inertia 
2nd Law of Motion:
The relationship between an object's mass m, its acceleration a, and the applied force F is F = ma. Acceleration and force are vectors (as indicated by their symbols being displayed in slant bold font); in this law the direction of the force vector is the same as the direction of the acceleration vector. 
3rd Law of Motion:
For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
