  • the concept of force and Newton’s 3rd law of motion
  • how free body diagrams can be used to represent forces on a particle or body
  • the use of the relationship F=ma in situations where mass is constant
  • the idea that linear momentum is the product of mass and velocity
  • the concept that force is the rate of change of momentum, applying this in situations where mass is constant
  • the principle of conservation of momentum and use it to solve problems in one dimension involving elastic collisions and inelastic collisions
