state Newton's 1st law
an object at rest or an object in motion will stay in motion unless an acted upon by an outside force
another name for Newton's 1st law
Law of Inertia
state Newton's 2nd law
The more mass an object has the more force that is needed to accelerate it
The less mass an object has the less force that is needed to accelerate it
the formula for Newton's second law
F= m x a
how can you increase the acceleration of an object?
increase the force
how can you increase the acceleration of an object?
decrease the mass
state Newton's third law
every action has an equal and opposite reaction
define inertia
the tendency of an object to resist a change in motion

which has more momentum.......
A pitbull or a mouse running with the same velocity
pitbull because it has more mass
which has more momentum......
