#### Definitions

First 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.
First law of motion - shorthand Inertia
Second 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.
Second law of motion - shorthand F=ma
Third law of motion For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
Third law of motion - shorthand To and fro
