NCERT Solutions for Class 11 Physics Chapter 5 Laws of motion


In this chapter, the topic has been covered like, Force, Inertia and Newton’s Low of Motion. The property of an object by virtue of which it cannot change its state of uniform motion along a straight line or rest on its own is called as inertia. It is the measure of the mass of a body. A force is a push or pull upon an object resulting from the object’s interaction with another object. Force can be categorized into two types; Constant Force and Action at a distance force. Newton’s Low:-

First Law: “A body continues in its state of rest or of uniform motion in a straight line unless it is compelled by some external force to change that state.”

Second Law: “The net force produced by an object is directly proportional to the magnitude of the net force and takes place in the direction of the force.”

Third Law: “To every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.”
