Much of the world of motion can be explained by three simply-stated laws known as Newton's laws of motion. While simply stated, these three laws have widespread value in terms of their ability to explain the motion of objects.

Newton's three laws of motion explain the effect of forces upon the motion of objects. Implicit within the three laws is the belief that knowledge of the forces that act upon an object will provide sufficient information about how the object will move or even change the manner by which it moves. This gallery will explore this relationship between force and motion.
