PHSC Chapter 5 Notes
Fly hits oncoming train scenario:
Force of the train on the fly = force of the fly on the train.
Flys mass x Flys acceleration = trains mass x trains acceleration
Rearranging terms, we have:

Newtons First Law of Motion:
Every object at rest, or in uniform motion, will remain in that state of motion unless compelled to do
otherwise by forces acting upon it.
Uniform Motion: Motion at a constant speed in a straight line.
PHSC Chapter 3 Notes
The second law of motion says that for all objects accelerating under the influence of any force, the
holds true. For objects accelerating under the influence of gravity, we
