1b When forces are balanced no acceleration occurs, and thus an object continues to move at a 
      constant speed or stays at rest (Newton's First Law). 

Science-Grade 9 Grade 10 Grade 11 Grade 12-Physical Sciences
1c How to apply the law F=ma to solve one-dimensional motion problems involving constant
     forces (Newton's Second Law).

1d When one object exerts a force on a second object, the second object always exerts a force 
     of equal magnitude and opposite direction. (Newton’s Third Law).
