Primary Action The term primary action is an attempt to describe the types of actions and the sources of those actions that drive a particular movement.

Newtononian Laws of Motion It is mostly very evident to the observer that animals and other animate beings have the ability to exert forces from within to create a whole range of movements that they have, for the most part, complete control over. They swim, they run, they jump, and they eat. There are many other things that we see around us that move, some of them in very dynamic ways that require external forces to create this dynamic motion: air pressure and wind create the waves on the ocean, tidal forces are responsible for moving vast quantities of material around, the flowing water in rivers is due to geographical and geological conditions—even the movement of clouds, the blowing of leaves on the trees, and the violent eruptions of volcanoes all are determined by a variety of external forces.

It will also travel in an arc and not in a straight line. It was Galileo that established that a force acting on an object resulted in the acceleration of the object, not the object's speed. Newton’s first law goes on to state that if there is no force acting on an object, there can be no acceleration of the object, and as a result the object will maintain its current velocity. If the velocity of the object is at zero, it follows that the object will remain at rest. Put very simply: • • An object at rest will remain at rest until a force acts on it.
