An object at rest will stay at rest and an object at motion will remain in motion unless acted upon by an outside force.
_______ is the property of an object that leads it to resist any change in motion
Standard Unit for force
The net force needed to change an object's motion is equal to its mass times its acceleration-OR- The acceleration of an object depends on its mass and the net force acting on it.
When one object exerts a force on an object, the second object, the second object exerts a force equal in size and opposite in direction back on the first object
