Lec 3 - Newton's Laws of Motion

"Lec 3 - Newton's Laws of Motion" Fundamentals of Physics (PHYS 200) This lecture introduces Newton's Laws of Motion. The First Law on inertia states that every object will remain in a state of rest or uniform motion in a straight line unless acted upon by an external force. The Second Law (F = ma) relates the cause (the force F) to the acceleration. Several different forces are discussed in the context of this law. The lecture ends with the Third Law which states that action and reaction are equal and opposite. 00:00 - Chapter 1. Review of Vectors 09:29 - Chapter 2.
