10. 10. Newton’s LawsNewton’s Laws  11stst law (Law of Inertia): An object atlaw (Law of Inertia): An object at rest stays at rest, and object in motionrest stays at rest, and object in motion stays in motion in a straight line at astays in motion in a straight line at a constant speed until acted on by anconstant speed until acted on by an outside force.outside force. – Inertia: Resistance of an object to changeInertia: Resistance of an object to change – Meaning: Things don’t speed up or slowMeaning: Things don’t speed up or slow down without a reason.down without a reason.
11. 11. Newton’s LawsNewton’s Laws  22ndnd Law: The acceleration of an object isLaw: The acceleration of an object is proportional to the force on that object and isproportional to the force on that object and is inversely proportional to the mass of theinversely proportional to the mass of the object.object. – Meaning: The heavier something is, the more forceMeaning: The heavier something is, the more force it takes to achieve a certain acceleration.it takes to achieve a certain acceleration. m F a ∑=  
