    Don't remember these off the top of my head. Newton's first law, force = push or pull. Newtons second law \[\sum_{}^{}F_{net} = ma_{net}\] Newtons third law, I think it's like an action produces an equal and opposite reaction. they describe objects in motion.

    The first law is the law of inertia.

    The description of the third law provided by photon336 is missing something important...see if you can determine what that is.

    I don'y know if you're figuring it out, or just afk, but I don't have a lot of time (Sorry for rushing you), so just state whatever you think of.

    i just think that newtons is the only person that invented the law of gravity and motion and its still beig studied becuse the 3 laws have a huge impact to our everyday life. @NotTim

    well..... Newton's law are very important because they tie into almost everything we see in everyday life. These laws tell us exactly how things move or sit still, like why you don't float out of bed or fall through the floor of your house. Newton's laws control how cars work, how water flows, how buildings don't fall down, and basically how everything around us moves I'll give you a simple example from everyday life, which I chose because it doesn't have too many distracting details. For a car to move, there must be friction between the wheels and the ground. The wheels exert a force on the ground because they are spinning, and the ground exerts a reaction force on the wheels. It is this force which pushes the car forward. So thank Newton's law of action and reaction every time you drive somewhere!
