# VCE Physics/Unit 2/AoS 1/Dynamics (how forces affect motion)

< VCE Physics‎ | Unit 2‎ | AoS 1

## Introduction

Dyanmics is also another fancy word that physicists use.

## Relevant dot points from the Study Design

• apply Newton’s three laws of motion to a body on which forces act: ${\displaystyle a={\frac {F_{net}}{m}}}$ , ${\displaystyle F_{\text{on A by B}}=-F_{\text{on B by A}}}$
• apply concepts of momentum to linear motion: p = mv
• explain changes in momentum as being caused by a net force: ${\displaystyle F_{net}={\frac {\Delta p}{\Delta t}}}$

This section will also introduce the concept of "impulse" and "kinetic energy" which is implicit in other dot points but not a separate dotpoint.
