Physics 101- Introduction to Mechanics
February 11- Newton's Laws






  If I push a book across the table and it comes to rest.  Obviously, a body will come to rest naturally- this happens for nearly anything.  Wagon rolling, ball rolling, book sliding, etc, each of them will come to rest after some time.  A bodyís natural tendency is to stop moving unless something is pulling or pushing it.  Right?

What is a force?

What is mass?

What is inertia?
