Newton’s First Law of Motion:
 “An object at rest will remain at rest unless acted on by an
unbalanced force. An object in motion continues in motion
with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted
upon by an unbalanced force. This law is often called
"the law of inertia".

Newton’s Second Law of Motion:
 Acceleration is produced when a force acts on a mass. The
greater the mass (of the object being accelerated) the
greater the amount of force needed (to accelerate the
object).

##  However, the Second Law gives us an exact relationship

between force, mass, and acceleration. It can be expressed
as a mathematical equation:

Newton’s Second Law of Motion: (Cont’s)
 This is an example of how Newton's Second Law works:

##  Mike's car, which weighs 1,000 kg, is out of gas. Mike is

trying to push the car to a gas station, and he makes the
car go 0.05 m/s/s. Using Newton's Second Law, you can
compute how much force Mike is applying to the car.

 Answer = 50 Newtons

Newton’s Third Law of Motion:
 For every action there is an equal and opposite re-action.

##  This means that for every force there is a reaction force

that is equal in size, but opposite in direction. That is to say
that whenever an object pushes another object it gets
pushed back in the opposite direction equally hard.

Newton’s Third Law of Motion: (Cont’s)
 This is an example of how a rocket works in Newton’s Third
Law.

##  The rocket's action is to push down on the ground with the

force of its powerful engines, and the reaction is that the
ground pushes the rocket upwards with an equal force.

Minimum Rope Diameter based on ASME
Nominal Diameter Minimum Allowable Diameter
(Reduction is more than 6% of the
nominal diameter )
(ISO 4344)
8.00 mm 7.52 mm
10.00 mm 9.40 mm
12.00 mm 11.28 mm
14.00 mm 13.16 mm
16.00 mm 15.04 mm

1 kg = 1000 g 1 g = 1000 mg
1kg /1000g= 1 1000g/1kg= 1
1g/1000mg= 1 1000mg/1m= 1

Acceleration and Deceleration Graph
If initial velocity(u), final velocity
(v), time taken (t) are given.
Then the acceleration is given
by formula

## Where v = Final Velocity,

u = Initial velocity,
a = acceleration,
t = time taken,
s = distance traveled
The S.I unit for Acceleration is meters
per second square or m/s2.
