Newton published his three laws of motion in the Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica published in 1687, in Latin . This book is known as the Principia. Its first edition was published in 1687, second in 1713 and third edition in 1726, a year before Newton’s death. Its first English translation was published in Andrew Mott in 1729, which is basis of this article. The text of Newton’s law in Latin and English is given below. After each Newton only explained in the same nearly in one paragraph. It must be noted that Newton’s second of motion is far different as we teach now.
