 `I want information about Newton's Laws of Motion.`
 ```trunks1054, Isaac Newton's Three Laws of Motion, first published in 1684, was the cornerstone of Physics studies for nearly 250 years (before being usurped by the discoveries of Albert Einstein), and remain to this day one of the most practical pieces of knowledge in the world. Simply stated, the three laws are: 1. Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it. 2. 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. The Second Law can also be restated as "The acceleration of an object as produced by a net force is directly proportional to the magnitude of the net force, in the same direction as the net force, and inversely proportional to the mass of the object." 3. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. A detailed explanation of these laws, as well as practical examples and illustrations on these concepts can be found at http://www.glenbrook.k12.il.us/gbssci/phys/Class/newtlaws/newtltoc.html Sources: Newton's Three Laws of Motion http://csep10.phys.utk.edu/astr161/lect/history/newton3laws.html Newton's Laws of Motion Tables of Contents http://www.glenbrook.k12.il.us/gbssci/phys/Class/newtlaws/newtltoc.html Sir Isaac Newton http://www.sci.hkbu.edu.hk/scilab/math/newton.html Google search terms used: Laws of Motion Newton Laws of Motion Newton year published```
