First law: an object continues in its state of rest or
uniform motion unless an external force acts on it.
Second law: the net force acting on an object is equal to
the mass of the object times its acceleration: F = ma. The
force F is in Newtons (N), the mass m is in kilograms (kg), and
the acceleration is in m/s2.
Third law, the law of action and reaction: If particle 1
exerts a force on particle 2, then particle 2 exerts an equal
but opposite force on particle 1.
The weight of an object is the force of gravity exerted on
the object by the Earth. It has to be clearly distinguished
from the mass.
When an object moves on a rough surface, a frictional force
always opposes the motion. If the object is stationary, a force
of static friction acts on it with a magnitude that varies from
zero to a maximum value.
