Newton's Laws (Ideas and Concepts)

"Good luck in physics."
"Thank you."
"Remember, force equals mass times acceleration...light is a particle that can exhibit properties of a wave..."

Supremely intelligent physicist and mathematician Sir Isaac Newton put forth three basic laws of motion that explain why objects do what they do. In this law, his second, that Veronica quotes to Logan, Newton is saying that how big a thing is and how hard you push it determines how it will move. Why couldn't he have just said it that way? Wave-particle duality says that everything has properties of both waves and particles, despite the fact that we can't see them. Uh, okay. Sure.

"Uh, you don't take physics, do you?"
"I have a tattoo of Newton's second law right on my heart."

Newton's second law of motion states that the acceleration of an object increases when increased force is applied to that object and decreases when the mass of the object gets bigger. That's a lot of information for Logan to tattoo onto his chest. Perhaps he simply wants to impress Hannah with the girth of his pecs.
