Phyics Test 1

Chapters 1-4; Labs 1,2

1.Name the English gentleman who was responsible for the three laws of motion that serve as the foundation of classical physics. 1.Sir Isaac Newton
2.If you were able to let go of a ball in outer space, far away from the influence of gravity, without pushing it in any particular direction, would the ball remain in that exact spot or would it move in one direction or another? 2.It would stay exactly where it is put.
3.If a book were placed in your hand and you could measure the force applied to your hand by the book, could you determine how much force your hand was applying to the book? 3.Yes. The force would be exactly equal to that applied to your hand.
