Newton's Laws of Motion are three physical laws that, laid the foundation for classical mechanics. They describe the relationship between a body and the forces acting upon it, and its motion in response to those forces. These three laws have been expressed in several ways, over nearly three centuries, and can be summarised as follows: In his 1687 "Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica" ("Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy"), Isaac Newton set out three laws of motion. The first law defines the force F, the second law defines the mass m, and the third law defines the acceleration a. The first law states that if the net force acting upon a body is zero, its velocity will not change; the second law states that the acceleration of a body is proportional to the net force acting upon it, and the third law states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

In physics, dynamics is the branch of physics concerned with the study of forces and their effect on matter, commonly in the context of motion. In everyday usage, "dynamics" usually refers to a set of laws that describe the motion of bodies under the action of a system of forces. The motion of a body is described by its position and its velocity as the time value varies. The science of dynamics can be subdivided into, Dynamics of a rigid body, which deals with the motion of a rigid body in the frame of reference where it is considered to be a rigid body. Dynamics of a continuum, which deals with the motion of a continuous system, in the frame of reference where the system is considered to be a continuum.

owner of the weight off the space traveler is given by his mass times. Acceleration of gravity near the surface off the earth, then in mass. Off that space traveler use 115 kilograms, so his weight is given by 115 times 9.8, which results in a weight off approximately 1113 year terms. And that's it for the first item for the next item. We are in the interplanetary space, and there are no massive bodies nearby. It means that there is no gravity acting on the space traveler in the situation. So he's in our environment where the acceleration of gravity is approximately zero. It means that his weight is also equals 20 new toes, so he's weak less when in interplanetary space.
