HS-PS2-1: Next Generation Science Standards

Analyze data to support the claim that Newton's second law of motion describes the mathematical relationship among the net force on a macroscopic object, its mass, and its acceleration.

HS-PS2-2: Next Generation Science Standards

Use mathematical representations to support the claim that the total momentum of a system of objects is conserved when there is no net force on the system.
