With diagramming and an understanding of forces under our belts, its time we looked at the mathematical portion of forces. A force is known primarily as the sum of the products of each mass with its respective acceleration. An important note to make is this is the same as being the sum of the products of each mass with its respective rate of change over time of velocity, and likewise with RoC over time twice of displacement. Always keep this way of thinking from a different perspective handy! What you know now is how forces are calculated under ideal circumstances, but how about when we take things like friction into consideration?
Newton’s 2nd Law of Motion: The acceleration of an object is directly proportional to the force applied to the object and inversely proportional to the object’s inertial mass.
Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion: All forces come in pairs. The force of object one on object two is equal in magnitude and opposite in direction to the force of object two on object one.
