Get Started. It's Free 2 Newton's Laws of Motion ## 1. 2.1 Newton's Laws of Motion: Introduction

### 1.2. 2.1.1b Understand the Second Law: Force acting on an object

1.2.1. 2.1.1b1 Calculate, for an object moving in one dimension, the velocity change that results when a constant force F acts over a specified time interval

1.2.2. 2.1.1b2 Determine, for an object moving in a plane whose velocity vector undergoes a specified change over a specified time interval, the average force that acted on the object.

### 1.4. 2.1.2 Apply Newton’s Second Law
