Newton's First Law of Motion
In the absence of any unbalanced applied force (Fnet = 0), a body at rest remains at rest and a body in motion continues in motion with the same velocity.
Inertia
The natural tendency of an object to maintain its state of rest or uniform velocity.
The natural tendency of an object to maintain its state of rest or uniform velocity.
Inertia

Weight
The amount of gravitational force exerted by Earth on an object.
The amount of gravitational force exerted by Earth on an object.
Weight
Formula for weight
w = mg
Newton's Second Law
ΣFx = m*ax
and
ΣFy = m*ay
Where ax and ay are the accelerations in direction x and y respectively.
Newton's Third Law of Motion
For every force(action) that acts on an object there is an equal and opposite force (reaction).
For every force(action) that acts on an object there is an equal and opposite force (reaction).
Newton's Third Law of Motion
Equation for the normal force of an object on an incline plane at angle Θ
N = mg cos(Θ)
N = mg cos(Θ)
Equation for the normal force of an object on an incline plane at angle Θ
The 3 types of friction
Static Friction, Sliding (kinetic) Friction, and Rolling Friction
Force of static friction
Fs = μ N
Where μ is the coefficient of static friction and N is the normal force
Force of Kinetic Friction
Fk = μ N
Where μ is the coefficient of kinetic friction and N is the normal force
