Concept 1: Newton’s laws predict the motion of most objects. As a basis for understanding this concept:
a: Students know how to solve problems that involve constant speed and average speed.
b: Students know that when forces are balanced, no acceleration occurs; thus an object continues to move at a constant speed or stays at rest (Newton’s first law).
c: Students know how to apply the law F = ma to solve one-dimensional motion problems that involve constant forces (Newton’s second law).
d: Students know that when one object exerts a force on a second object, the second object always exerts a force of equal magnitude and in the opposite direction (Newton’s third law).
