Newton's 3 Laws Infographic
By: Brooklin Foster
Newton's First Law
Newton's first law is all about inertia. It means when an object is in motion and when an object is in rest, then the object will stay in rest. An example of this is when a soccer ball is kicked, the soccer ball isn't going to stop moving unless a force acts against it and forces the soccer ball to stop moving. If there were no obstacles against the soccer ball, then the soccer ball will just keep on going forever.
Newton's Second Law
Newton's second law deals with mass, acceleration and force. If an object has a lot of mass, then the acceleration will be harder to have. Also, if two objects get the same amount of force, but one of the objects has more mass than the other object, then the object with the less amount of mass will accelerate easier than the object with more amount of mass. For example, if a bowling ball and a tennis ball get the same amount of force, then the tennis ball will be easier to accelerate in speed than the bowling ball because the bowling ball has more mass than the tennis ball.
Newton's 3rd Law
Newton's third law of all about pairs. When an object has a force on another object the second object will have a force that is the same in size and opposite in direction back on the first object. An example of this is when a little kid is holding on to the wall at the rollerskating rink. Eventually the kid will push off of the wall and go out into the middle. When they push off of the wall, that is an example of Newton's third law.
