We know about the basic components of physics (displacement and its time rate of change companions), but now we start to dive into Newtons Laws and being able to apply what we know to more practical scenarios. You exert a force on so many different objects in your day to day life without even realizing it. After watching this video and learning about free-body diagrams, briefly consider the space around you and imagine what a free body diagram about you would look like. Take time to think about every factor in the environment that you can, and imagine what forces (magnitude-less) youre exerting. Its these kinds of exercises that keep your physics mind sharp as a tack. Of course, forces are much useful when we have a law to mathematically describe them, as well see in the next video.
Newton’s 1st Law of Motion: The velocity of an object will remain constant unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.
Inertia is an object’s resistance to being accelerated. Mass is a measure of an object’s inertia.
