Basic equation of motion

The basic equation of motion is: _F = ma _(Force equals mass multiplied by
acceleration).

After resolving the forces into two perpendicular directions use_ F = ma_
in the direction of motion.

ABSOLUTE UNIT:
MEASURE

Newtons
Force. [Always use Newtons to measure force (_mg = kg ms_-2)]

g
Acceleration due to gravity (9.8 ms-2)

kg (kilograms)
Mass

s, secs (seconds)
Time

m (metres)
Distance
