Solution Preview

Newtons laws are:

1-Every object in a state of uniform motion (constant velocity in magnitude and direction) tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it.
2-The relationship between an object's mass m, its acceleration a, and the applied force F is F = ma. Acceleration and force are vectors having both magnitude and direction. This is kind of similar to the first law but more mathematical since it ...
