There are some basic principles governing the motion of objects, some of which are scientifically valid and some of which are merely observations or conjectures of EDGE members.
Mass is defined as an object's resistance to change in motion.
Velocity is the rate of change of displacement of an object.
The momentum of an object is a product of its mass and its velocity.
The acceleration of an object is directly proportional to the force imparted to it and inversely proportional to the mass of the object.
The angular acceleration of an object is directory proportional to the torque imparted to it and inversely proporational to the rotational inertia of the object.
The resistance encountered by a body moving through a fluid (such as air) is proportional to the product of the cross-sectional area of the object (A) and the square of the velocity (v). The constant (C) is basedon the object's shape and the fluid's density.
