Newton Law Arieyon Truitt

ALSO CALLED THE LAW OF INERTIA. I must apply force to move a heavy object, such as my chair or a set of dumbbells. In fact, I have to apply a force, albeit not as much, to move even a lighter object, such as my pencil. If I press down on a ball of clay, the force of my hand causes the clay to change its shape.
Mike's car, which weighs 1,000 kg, is out of gas. Mike is trying to push the car to a gas station, and he makes the car go 0.05 m/s/s. Using Newton's Second Law, you can compute how much force Mike is applying to the car. F=1,000x0.05. The answer is 50 Newtons
Ex: As you sit in your chair, your body acts on the chair with one force, and the chair reacts on your body with yet another force.
