UNIT3:  F=ma, LINEAR MOMENTUM,
ANGULAR MOMENTUM,  GRAVITATIONAL LAW,
WEIGHTLESSNESS
NEWTON's LAWS govern all motion. Phenomena in the Universe result from interaction between objects. The conservation of linear and angular momentum describe these interactions.
Change in momentum =
net force applied during a time t.
