b) An empty shopping cart has more inertia than a full shopping cart
c) Inertia is the tendency of an object to change direction or slow its motion

b) The forces are unbalanced
c) The motion of the object will change
d) The direction of the object will change

Which of the following explains what happens when a person pushes against a wall?
a) No force acts on the wall, because the wall does not move
b) The wall pushes against the person with an equal and opposite force
c) The forces acting on the wall become unbalanced.

b) The box will begin to move in the opposite direction
c) The box will continue moving in a straight line and at the same speed
d) The box will increase in speed until the forces acting on it are balanced

Which of the following is true about acceleration?
a) Acceleration refers to how forces maintain the velocity of objects in motion
b) Acceleration equals the mass of the object divided by the net force acting on it
c) At the same net force, a large mass has a greater acceleration than a small mass
d) Acceleration refers to the rate at which an object’s velocity changes over time

a) First Law
b) Second Law
c) Third Law
d) Combination of the Second and Third Laws
