Force and Mass A FORCE is a push or a pull of one physical system on another physical system. There are contact forces (normal, tension and friction forces) and noncontact (action-at-a-distance) forces (gravitational force). INERTIA, which is measured by MASS, is the property of a physical system to maintain its state of uniform motion.

Newton’s Laws A physical system will tend to maintain its state of uniform motion or First Law (Law of Inertia): rest if the resultant (net) force acting on it is zero. e nd aw (Law of net Force and Accelera on): Se cond The vector sum of all the forces acting on an object is equal to the mass fth t bj tti it ( t ) l Law (Law of net Force and Accelera i F tion): ⎛⎞ G G all forces of that object times its (vector) acceleration F = ma . ⎜⎟ ⎝⎠ ACTION If a physical system ACTS on another physical system with a force F , e other system REACTS on the initial s tem
