3. Newton's first law of motion: According to this law "a body continues to be in state of rest or uniform motion along a straight line, unless it is acted upon by some external force to change the state."
Example- a bike can not change its straight line path on its own. We have to apply force on its handle.
Newton's second law of motion: According to this law "the rate of change of linear momentum ...
