Newtons 1st law

a body will remain in the same state of motion unless acted upon by an unblalanced force.

5 of 19

Newtons 2ndlaw

Σf = ma

6 of 19

Newtons 3rd law

(forces act in pairs) if body A exerts a force on body B, body B will exert force equal in magnitude but opposite in direction to A

7 of 19

w = mg

(weight = mass x gravity) can be used whenever we are resolving a vertical force on earth

pulleys

2 (Σf=ma equations), where acceleration must be opposite, tension is the force opposite to friction/gravity, and can be found using Σf=ma

vectors, method 1 (tip and tail)

join the forces end to end, works best if forces are at right angels, use Trig to find angles, and pythagorus to fing magnitude

10 of 19

vectors, method 2 (cosine rule)

add the forces end to end, and use the cosine rule to find the angle and magnitude from the object

11 of 19

vectors, method 3 (co-plannar)

break up the forces into their horisontal and vertical componants, take the sum of the vertical and horisontal componants, and use trig and pythagorus to find the resultant force

Ek = 1/2mv^2

kinetic energy = 1/2 mass x velocity^2

force body diagrams

a dot, in the middle represents the object it act's as as a particle (it has no volume), the forcesare shown as arrows with e their respective direction, and mtheir magnitude is displayed by the length of the arrow

17 of 19

terminal velocity

this is the fastest an object due to resistive forces, e.g drag/ friction

18 of 19

P= mv

momentum = mass x velocity in a contained collision( no external force) momentum is always conserved P(before)=P(after)
