Newton's Laws

by Destiny Tift

Newton's 1st law

An object at rest will remain at rest until a net force is acted on or an object will stay in constant motion unless a net force acts on it

  • Law of inertia
  • ex. a ball will stay at rest until kicked or a ball will keep rolling until stopped by someone
Newtons First Law of Motion

Newton's 2nd law

Acceleration of an object is in the same direction that the net force is applied on the object

  • F=ma Force = mass x acceleration
  • Greater the force ; the greater the acceleration
  • ex. when you push a toy car it will go further and faster then if you push a real car
Newton's 2nd Law of Motion

Newton's 3nd law

For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction

  • Greater the mass, Greater momentum
  • Action = Reaction
  • a person pushes someone and they push you back
Newton's 3rd Law of Motion
