Newton's First Law of Motion The law of inertia: Every object continues in a state of rest or of uniform speed in a straight line unless acted on by a nonzero force.

Newton's First Law of Motion CHECK YOUR UNDERSTANDING A sheet of paper can be quickly withdrawn from under a soft-drink can without the can toppling because A. gravity pulls harder on the can than on the paper. B. the can has weight. C. the can has inertia. D. none of the above

Newton's Second Law of Motion The law of acceleration: The acceleration produced by a net force on an object is directly proportional to the net force, is in the same direction as the net force, and is inversely proportional to the mass of the object.

Newton's Second Law of Motion CHECK YOUR UNDERSTANDING Consider a cart pushed along a track with a certain force. If the force remains the same while the mass of the cart decreases to half, the acceleration of the cart will A. remain the same. B. halve. C. double. D. change unpredictably.

Newton's Second Law of Motion CHECK YOUR UNDERSTANDING Push a cart along a track so that twice as much net force acts on it. If the acceleration remains the same, what is a reasonable explanation? A. The mass of the cart doubles when the force is doubled. B. The cart experiences a force that it didn't before.
