Newton's Three Laws
Overview of the three laws
Newtons laws of motion in sports
Newtons First Law of Motion
An object at rest will stay at rest and an object in motion will stay in motion unless acted upon by an outside force.
If a bowl is sitting on a table then that bowl won't move until something hits it.
If a car is rolling then it keeps rolling unless you hit the brakes or friction and gravity stops it.
Law 2, F = M x A
The greater the mass (of the object being accelerated) the greater the amount of force needed (to accelerate the object).
The harder you push on something, the faster it will move.
If both dog teams pull with the same force then the net force is 0 and the object wont move.
The object will move in the direction you push it.
