**[S3 Physics PMCians] **

**What we did in 2 hours:**

Last lesson, we started on **Dynamics** where we introduced **Newton’s Laws** (Yes, the famous one who had an apple dropped on his head, though it could just be a myth!)

Anyway, we learnt that **Newton’s 1st Law** explained how a body would behave if there’s ** no** resultant force acting on it, and

**Newton’s 2nd Law**shows how much a body would accelerate if there is

__a__resultant force, giving us the very important equation: R

**esultant F = ma**.

We learnt how to apply vector diagrams to solve for Forces as well.

By now, you would also have found out that **Kinematics** is very commonly integrated with **Dynamics** whereby many questions require understanding of both concepts to solve.

**What you take home:**

Below is an excellent simulator on Forces and Acceleration, do try out the different simulations to see how resultant force affects the motion on an object. Enjoy and have fun with it!
