The three basic postulates of [[Isaac Newton]] from which [[Classical Mechanics]] is derived.

Newton's First Law:  "Every body continues travels in a straight line with constant speed unless acted on by a force"

Newton's Second Law: "The rate of change of a body's momentum is proportional to the force acting on it"

Newton's Third Law: "If body A exerts a force on body B, then body B exerts a force of equal magnitude and opposite direction on body A"
