Kepler’s Second Law: The line joining the planet to the Sun sweeps out equal areas in equal times as the planet travels around the ellipse Kepler’s Third Law: Newton’s Law of Gravitation Conservation of Angular Momentum Conservation of Energy Conservation of Momentum Energy—Quantity often understood as the ability to do work Forms of energy: Mechanical energy-1. Kinetic energy Definition of Simple Harmonic Motion (SHM): Periodic motion about an equilibrium position in a sinusoidal pattern. A body in SHM experiences an opposing or correcting force proportional to displacement and in opposite direction to motion....
