Unformatted text preview: Chapter 5: Newton’s Laws of Motion Newton’s First Law- Under ideal frictionless conditions, a body in motion would continue to move forever.- NEWTON’S FIRST LAW: In the absence of a net external force, a body at rest remains at rest, and a body in motion continues to move at constant velocity.- If some first reference frame is inertial, any other reference frame in uniform translational motion relative to the first will also be inertial, and any other reference frame in accelerated motion relative to the first will not be inertial. - If something is accelerating, then it is not an inertial reference frame. An object must continue to be at rest, or continue at constant velocity in order for it to be an inertial reference frame. Newton’s Second Law- NEWTON’S SECOND LAW: An external force acting on a body gives it an acceleration that is in the direction of the force and has a magnitude directly proportional to the...
