Ch 1 Changes imply interactions Vectors are used to describe many changes Momentum is fundamental: p = γ m v . Ch 2 The momentum principle: Δ p = F Δ t Interactions correspond to forces . Use Δ r =( p /m) Δ t to predict future positions (position update formula) Review of What We’ve Covered Thus Far

Ch 3 Can use position update formula for variable forces too: Gravity Electric Reciprocity: These few principles were the basis for Exam 1. v F = " G Mm r 2 ˆ r r F = 1 4 "# o q 1 q 2 r 2 ˆ r r F 12 = ! r F 21 Review of What We’ve Covered Thus Far
