Are there any references to laws of motion in Hindu Scriptures like Vedas, Upanishands, Puranas or elsewhere?

Note: Answer only from Hindu Scriptures or provide views of Hindu Acharyas on this topic. Don't speculate.

    It is very unlikely to be the case. Newton's laws (which are definitive and tautological), when useful, are helpful in very quantitative analyses. Most of the scriptures we have are very qualitative. Also it should be noted that the second law is a definition and not a law, so it helps only in quantifying a property. The first law does not have a valid case in a universe with mass. The third law is so fundamental that it may have been simply assumed. I don't see much value whether it was discussed or not. – user1952500 Jul 12 '17 at 18:23

    @SwamiVishwananda It's a pity that the earlier this Qn was closed as "off-topic" due to scientific speculations. Though it is NOT. See the related Qn-s. It got reopened and now again closed as "off-topic" for the same reasons. – iammilind Jul 14 '17 at 7:20

    @RubelliteFae yes you are right. But this site is "Hinduism Stack Exchange" and not "Science Stack Exchange". We answer questions about Hinduism , for science answer Physics, Chemistry , Biology , Mathematics et cetera SE are there. And for logic or explanation, these kind of questions can ve asked on Skeptics Stack Exchange or something else. We are a Hinduism forum, not a science explanation forum. – user12826 Mar 25 '18 at 13:56
