### Newton's 1st law of Motion

Objects remain in uniform motion (at rest or constant velocity) until acted on by a net force.

### Newton's 2nd Law of Motion

A net force exerted on an object results in acceleration proportional to the strength of the force and inversely proportional to the mass of the object.

### Newton's 3rd Law of Motion

For every action the is an equal and opposite reaction.

### Force

(F): An interaction between masses.

### Force Equation

F=ma, measured in Newtons (N).

### Mass

(m): A measure of the quantity of matter in an object.

### Inertia

The property of mass that resists change in motion. Large masses have a lot of inertia.

### Balanced Force

Equal forces acting on one object in opposite directions.

### Unbalanced Force

Unequal forces acting on an object cause motion.

### Net Force

The sum of all the forces acting on a mass.

### Newton

(N): The unit used to measure force in the metric system.
