Up to now, you have learned to use Newton’s laws of motion to determine the motion of an object based on the forces acting on it. The methods you have learned are completely general and can always be applied to solve a problem. Unfortunately, in many cases we cannot find an exact solution to the equations of motion we get from Newton’s second law.
