Newton's Laws of Motion Project
A flyer about one of Newton's 3 Laws of Motion
Requirements
2. State each law as it is written in your textbook or other source.
3. Find at least 2 pictures that illustrate the law. The pictures must be photographs or drawings NOT diagrams or illustrations already labeled with forces. The pictures MUST be in COLOR.
4. Write a paragraph describing how the pictures you choose illustrates the law. The paragraph must be at least 3 sentences. Please make sure that your references are school appropriate.
5. You should embed a video clip demonstrating the law at work.
6. DUE DATE is April 30, 2015.
Newton's First Law: Law of Inertia
| Newton's Second LawThe Second Law gives us an exact relationship between force, mass, and acceleration. It can be expressed as a mathematical equation: | Newton's Third Law: Action/ReactionFor every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. This means that for every force there is a reaction force that is equal in size, but opposite in direction. That is to say that whenever an object pushes another object it gets pushed back in the opposite direction equally hard. |

- The head of a hammer can be tightened onto the wooden handle by banging the bottom of the handle against a hard surface.
Newton's Second Law
The Second Law gives us an exact relationship between force, mass, and acceleration. It can be expressed as a mathematical equation:
or
FORCE = MASS times ACCELERATION
Newton's Third Law: Action/Reaction
For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
This means that for every force there is a reaction force that is equal in size, but opposite in direction. That is to say that whenever an object pushes another object it gets pushed back in the opposite direction equally hard.
