According to Newton's Law of Motion, the object will A. continue to move at the same velocity regardless of what happens. B. continue to move at the same velocity until acted upon by an outside force. C. slow down to a stop. D. for any force, there always is an equal and opposite reaction force. E. speed up to the speed of light.

Question 8 While on the Moon, astronaut Dave Scott demonstrated Galileo's experiment by dropping a feather and a hammer. They reached the surface at the same time because A. the force of gravity is larger on the feather than on the hammer. B. the gravitational acceleration of each object is the same. C. the force of gravity has no effect on either object. D. the velocity of the feather is greater than the hammer. E. the force of gravity varies as the square of the distance of the feather to the surface.

A while later it is seen moving west at 2m/sec. Which of the following correctly describes the forces acting on the puck? A. A force has acted, since the direction has changed. B. No force has acted, since the speed is the same. C. A force has acted, but only in a northward direction. D. The above information is insufficient to tell if forces have acted.
