Newton's Laws of Motion

By Haley Fitzpatrick

Newton's First Law

Objects keep doing what they are doing unless disrupted by an outside force.
The bowling pins are at rest and won't move unless disrupted by the bowling ball which then will make them move which is inertia.

Newton's Second Law

The force on an object is equal to it's mass times it's acceleration.
In the photo above the car has a mass of 1000 kg and it's acceleration is 8 m/s squared. The force of this object would then be 8,000 Newtons.

The mass of the elephant is greater than the force that the person is giving therefore the mass is resisting the force and has no acceleration.

Newton's Third Law

For every action there is a equal and opposite reaction.
The air is pushing out of the balloon to the right so the reaction to that is the balloon moving forward to the left.
