# Episode 210: Preparation for Newton’s laws of motion

**Main aims**

Students will:

- use the equations of motion to investigate the relationship between force and acceleration for a constant mass
- perform simple calculations using F = ma
- state the relationship between mass and acceleration for a constant force
- understand the range and application of Newton’s Third Law
- perform calculations using the concept of the Third Law

**Prior knowledge**

It is likely that students will have met these laws in some form previously. Now is your chance to ensure that they deepen their grasp of their significance.

**Where this leads**

Newton’s laws of motion are applied in many different situations. Hopefully, they will gradually become second nature to your students.
