## Newton's Laws of Motion - Chapter Summary and Learning Objectives

This chapter introduces Isaac Newton's scientific laws, or rules, pertaining to force and motion and shows how they relate to our everyday lives. You can explore weight, mass, gravity, acceleration, speed, and velocity while you learn about the law of universal gravitation through these lessons. This chapter also clarifies the differences between mass and weight in addition to the distinction between balanced and unbalanced forces. When you complete this chapter, you should be able to:

• Explain Newton's laws of motion
• Describe the effects of mechanics on objects
• State and apply the law of universal gravitation
• Understand the essentials of forces and motion

Video Objective
Newton's First Law of Motion: Examples of the Effect of Force on Motion Study the interface between motion and force.
