    1. Motion along a line due to a  constant net force If the net force is not zero, an object will accelerate. The acceleration of the object is constant, meaning constant in magnitude and in direction. Thus, from Newton’s 2nd law, what you will find is an acceleration. Why is the acceleration so important? - Because from the acceleration we can predict the motion of particle, what will be the velocity and where will be the object.

    Example 4.1) A brick of mass m 1 =3.0 kg rests on a frictionless horizontal surface. A second block of mass m 2 =2.0 kg hangs from a cord. The block are released from rest. (a) Find the accelerations of the two blocks after they are released. (b) What is the velocity of the first block 1.2 s after the release of the blocks? (c) How far has block 1 moved during the 1.2-s interval?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
