  2. What is Newton's 2nd law?
    if an object moving with uniform speed is acted upon by an external force, the change of motion, or acceleration, will be directly proportional to the amount of force and inversely proportional to the mass of the object being moved.
  3. What is Newton's 3rd law?
    for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction
  4. What are the 3 types of motion?
    acceleration, speed, velocity
  5. What are the 4 principles of flight?
    lift, weight, drag, thrust
  6. Which moveable surfaces control rotation about the three axis?
