### Principles of Classical Mechanics

The basic laws of classical mechanics are Newton's Laws of Motion. The laws describe the effect of forces on the state of motion of a body, quantify the effects and relate it to the change in velocity of the body. They also tell us about the nature of a force.

The statements of the laws are :

- A body continues to be in its state of motion unless an un balanced external force acts on it.

- The force acting on a body is equal to the rate of change of its momentum.
i.e.

**F**= d**p**/dt

- To every force, there is another with the same magnitude but acting in the opposite direction. ( To every action there is an equal and oppsite reaction. )
