Newton's Laws of Motion are three physical laws that, laid the foundation for classical mechanics. They describe the relationship between a body and the forces acting upon it, and its motion in response to those forces. These three laws have been expressed in several ways, over nearly three centuries, and can be summarised as follows: In his 1687 "Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica" ("Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy"), Isaac Newton set out three laws of motion. The first law defines the force F, the second law defines the mass m, and the third law defines the acceleration a. The first law states that if the net force acting upon a body is zero, its velocity will not change; the second law states that the acceleration of a body is proportional to the net force acting upon it, and the third law states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

In physics, dynamics is the branch of physics concerned with the study of forces and their effect on matter, commonly in the context of motion. In everyday usage, "dynamics" usually refers to a set of laws that describe the motion of bodies under the action of a system of forces. The motion of a body is described by its position and its velocity as the time value varies. The science of dynamics can be subdivided into, Dynamics of a rigid body, which deals with the motion of a rigid body in the frame of reference where it is considered to be a rigid body. Dynamics of a continuum, which deals with the motion of a continuous system, in the frame of reference where the system is considered to be a continuum.

for the first item we have to use. The equation for the magnitude of the rev additional force, which is the following magnitude, is given by Newton's constant times the mass off the first object times the mass off the other object divided by the distance in between them squared. Then, using the data given by their problem, we have 6.6 to 7 times stand to minus 11 times the mass off the earth. Just 5.98 times 10 2 24 times the mass of the satellite, which is 425 kilograms. And this is divided by the distance between the satellite and this center off the earth on this distance is given by two times the radios off the earth. Then we have true times 6.38. I'm standing on the six squared and these results in the gravitational force of approximately 1000 and 40 new terms, which you can write as 1.4 times stand littered mutants. It means that the Earth is exerting a force on the spaceship attracting it. And at the same time, this spaceship is attracting Earth. If a force off the same magnitude but opposite direction. So on the second item, we have to calculate what is the magnitude off the rev additional force exerted on the earth by the satellite? It happens that the reputational force exerted on here by the satellite has the same magnitude as a reputational force exerted on the satellite. My dear, if there's a symmetry in the reputational force, so again we have 1.4 times 10 to the third new tools on the next item, we have to calculate the satellites acceleration. For that, we have to use Newton's second law. Let me choose Thies to be my reference frame and I call this access X. Then the net force exerted on the satellite is given by the satellites mast times its acceleration before the acceleration off The satellite is given by the net force exerted on it. Divided by its mass. The net force exerted on the satellite is the gravitational force that has been exerted to the left. Then we have minus the gravitational force divided by the mass off the satellite. And these is minus 1.4 times 10 to the third, divided by 425 which results in an acceleration off approximately minus two points 45 meters per second squared. Note that the minus sign indicates that the satellite is being accelerated to the left. Then for the last item, we have to calculate what is the acceleration off the earth again? We have to use Newton's second law, sir. The net force exerted on the earth is of course, to the mass off the earth times its declaration. Then the acceleration off the earth is given by the net force exerted on the earth divided bites mats, which again the net force exerted on the earth is the rev additional force. But this time it's exerted to the right. So it's positive we have 1.4 times standing, the third divided by the mass off the earth, which is 5.98 times stand toe into four. These results an acceleration of approximately 1.74 times 10 to minus 22 meters per second squared
