Newton's First Law
An object will resist change in motion if moving or resting.
force that opposes motion
Newton's Second Law
Objects will accelerate in direct proportion to the force applied to the object
Newton's Third Law
For every action there is an equal but opposite reaction
force of gravity on masses
the amount of matter in an object
forces that add up to zero acceleration and/or no motion
forces that produce acceleration
has magnitude and direction
