3.3 Newton’s Laws of Motion

This section covers the following syllabus (Physics 5059) requirements.

  •   apply Newton's Laws to:

(i) describe the effect of balanced and unbalanced forces on a body

(ii) describe the ways in which a force may change the motion of a body

(iii) identify action-reaction pairs acting on two interacting bodies

(stating of Newton's Laws is not required)

  •  recall and apply the relationship resultant force = mass × acceleration to new situations or to solve related problems
