Abstract.In this paper the relationship between Newton's third law and D'Alembert's supplemented principle is shown, where the latter is upgraded to the rank of a new law of mechanics, referred to as d'Alembert's law, and which under its concept comprises six equations absolutely independent from one another. D'Alembert's law, in being generalised to cover any physical medium corrects the fundamentals of the mechanics of such media. Newton's five laws are also supplemented.
