Isaac Newton is most famous for his three laws of motion. The first law states that a body at rest will stay at rest unless acted on by an outside force. The second law states that the change in momentum of a body is proportional to the force acting on it and is in the direction of the force. The third law states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
