Particle Kinetics – Newton’s 2nd Law Force Interaction between a body and its environment; action of one body on another. Force is a vector characterized by magnitude, direction, and the point of application . Superposition of forces: 1 2 3 1 2 3 1 2 3 , x x x x x y y y y y R F F F F R F F F F R F F F F = Σ =+ + + = Σ =+ + + = Σ = + + + R is called the resultant, the total force, or the net force, which has the equivalent mechanical effect as the combination of the individual forces. Newton’s laws of motion 1. Newton’s first law (law of inertia): A body will remain its state of motion if and only if there is no net force acting on it: 0 0 constant equilibrium F a υ Σ = = = If the body is initially at rest, it will remain at rest. If the body is in motion, it will move with constant velocity. Inertia: the tendency of the body to remain its original state of motion, the resistance to change of motion.

### What students are saying

• 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.
