# Newton's Laws

**Newton's First Law**- A body at rest tends to remain at rest, and a body in motion tends to remain in uniform motion, unless acted on by some outside force.**Newton's Second Law**- Acceleration produced in a mass by the addition of a given force is directly proportional t he force, and inversely proportional to the mass.**Newton's Third Law**- For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

# Boyle's Law

- When you change the volume of a confined gas that i held at a constant temperatre, the gas pressure also changes.

# Charle's Law

- All gasses expandand contract in direct proportion to any change in absolute temperature.

# Dalton's Law

- When a mixture of two or more gasses which do not combine chemically is placed in a container, each gas expands to fill the container. The total pressure exerted on the container is equal to the sum of the partial pressures.

# Pascal's Law

- When pressure is applied to a confined liquid , the liquid exerts an equal pressure at right angles to the container that encloses it.

# Archimedes' Principal

- When an object is submerged in a liquid, the object displaces a volume of liquid equal to its volume and is supported by a force equal to the weight of the liquid displaced. The force that supports the object is known as the liquid's buoyant force.

# Bernoulli's Principle

- As the velocity of a fluid increases, its internal pressure decreases.

# Ohm's Law

- The current that flows in a circuit is directly proportional to the voltage that causes it, and inversely proportional to the resistance in the circuit.
