Balanced Forces

Forces on a object that combine to give a zero net force and do not change the motion of the object.

How it Connects to Baseball

When the ball sits in your glove it makes a balaced force because the force from the baseball and me work together to make it balanced.

Unbalanced Forces

Forces that combine to produce a net force that is not equal zero and causes the velocity of an object to change.

How it Connects to Baseball

When the pitcher throws the baseball it makes an unbalanced force because the force from the pitcher is greater than the force of the baseball.

Gravity

Attractive force between two objects that depends on the masses of the objects and the distance between them.

How it Connects to Baseball

Gravity is shown in baseball when the baseball starts falling down from a fly ball becuse of it is attracted o the ground.

Friction

A force that opposes the sliding motion between objects that are in contact.

How it Connects to Baseball

Friction is shown when a player slides into a base because there body and the ground rub against each other.

Newton's 1st Law and Inertia

An object in motion will stay in motion/rest unless an unbalanced net force acts on it.

How it Connects to Baseball

Newton's first law is shown when the ball hits the bat because they are both equal forces untill the bat his the ball which is the unbalanced force acting on it.

Newton's 2nd Law

A=f/m the acceleration of an object is in the same direction as the net force acting on it.

How it Connects to Baseball

Newton's 2nd law is shown when a player is running to first base because you could use the formula to find the acceleration of the player.

Newton's 3rd Law

States that when one object exerts a force on a second object the second object exerts a force on the first object equal in strength and in other direction.

How this Connects to Baseball

Newton's 3rd law is shown in baseball when you hit the ball and the ball pushes on the bat and the bat pushes on the ball
