What are the laws of motion according to Newton?

The laws of motion according to Newton are: 1. An object at rest tends to stay at rest and an object in motion tends to stay in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force (law of inertia). 2. The rate of change of momentum of an object is directly proportional to the applied force and takes place in the direction in which the force acts (law of force and acceleration). 3. For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction (law of action and reaction).

What is the difference between scalar and vector quantities?

Scalar quantities are those that have only magnitude, such as distance, speed, and temperature. Vector quantities are those that have both magnitude and direction, such as displacement, velocity, and force.

What is the principle of conservation of momentum?

The principle of conservation of momentum states that the total momentum of a closed system remains constant if no external forces are acting on it. In other words, the total momentum before an event is equal to the total momentum after the event.

Study Notes

Matching Elements and Descriptions

  • Match elements with descriptions: a process of linking items with their corresponding explanations or characteristics
  • Match items with categories: a process of grouping items into their respective classes or types
  • Match terms with associated fields: a process of linking technical words or phrases with their corresponding areas of study or expertise

Newton's Laws of Motion

  • Newton's First Law of Motion: an object at rest will remain at rest, and an object in motion will continue to move with a constant velocity, unless acted upon by an external force
  • Newton's Second Law of Motion: the force applied to an object is equal to the mass of the object multiplied by its acceleration
  • Newton's Third Law of Motion: for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction

Scalar and Vector Quantities

  • Scalar quantities: physical quantities with only magnitude, but no direction (e.g., temperature, mass, time)
  • Vector quantities: physical quantities with both magnitude and direction (e.g., displacement, velocity, acceleration)

Conservation of Momentum

  • Principle of conservation of momentum: the total momentum of a closed system remains constant over time, as long as there is no external force acting on the system
  • Momentum: the product of an object's mass and velocity
