Newton's Three Laws in Motion

by Abigail Beaudoin

Newton's First law

The first law of motion states that if an object is at rest, then it will stay at rest until an unbalanced object is acted upon it. If an object is in motion, then the object will continue to be in motion unless an unbalanced force is acted upon it.

Examples of Newton's first law

One example of Newton's first law is bowling. This is an example because the bowling pins are at rest when no force will affect the position. The bowling ball is the unbalanced force but will continue to move until it hits the pins which is the unbalanced force for the ball.

Newton's second law in motion

The second law states that the acceleration is produced when the force acts on the mass. the greater the mass, the greater amount of the force needed.

Examples for Newton's second law

one example of Newton's second law would be Volleyball because the ball has a certain amount of mass that it carries. When you hit the ball, you create a certain amount of force. Once the ball hits the force or in this case your arm, the ball would then send the ball across the room in a certain amount of speed. Once the ball passes the net which separates the two teams, that player would give off their force and the ball returns to you or another player on your team.

Newton's Third Law of Motion

The third law states that for every action there is an re-action that is equal and opposite.

Examples on Newton's Third Law

One example of Newton's third law would be a car crash because both cars are going at an equal amount of speed and there going in an opposite direction. If one of the cars' crashes into the other, the reaction would push the two cars together and then pull apart from each other.
