Newton’s Laws of Motion #1 A body remains at rest, or moves with constant velocity unless acted upon by an outside force #2 The change in a body’s velocity due to an applied force is in the same direction as the force and proportional to it, but is inversely proportional to the body’s mass. F = m a #3 For every applied force, a force of equal size but opposite direction arises.

One example of a force. W=mg g=acceleration due to gravity at Earth’s surface = 9.8 m/s/s W=mg=ma….g=a What does Newton’s Third Law say about this? Your weight is proportional to your mass
