Hi, Newton's laws of motion consist of three physical laws that form the basis for mechanics. Newton's First Law of Motion states that an object at rest will remain at rest or an object in motion continues in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless an external force is applied to it. This law is often called "The Law of Inertia". Newton's Second Law of Motion states that acceleration is produced when a force acts on a mass. The greater the mass of the object being accelerated, the greater the amount of

    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.
