-Used to describe natural phenomena
-Each measurement is associated with a physical quantity
-Need defined standards
-Characteristics of standards for measurements
* Readily accessible
* Possess some property that can be measured reliably
Physics for Scientists and Engineers
Introduction and Chapter 1 Physics

Motion in One Dimension
Kinematics- Describes motion while ignoring the external agents that might have caused or
modified the motion
* Along a straight line
Motion represents a continual change in an objects position.

Other Applications of Newtons Laws
Two analysis models using Newtons Laws of Motion have been developed.
The models have been applied to linear motion.
Newtons Laws can be applied to other situations:
